The Consumers Association of Malawi (CAMA) has advised President Peter Mutharika to forget about Buy Malawi Strategy (BWS) arguing that the strategy will likely hit a wall. 

Speaking to the local press, CAMA executive director John Kapito said manufacturers of different local commodities will be behind the failure of the strategy.

According to Kapito, many Malawians who are producing products always want to make huge profits as a result prices of local products are usually high.

“The president should be reminded that this might be the eleventh Buy Malawi Strategy to be implemented, the problem with local product producers is that they take advantage when people are coming to buy what they have produced.”

Casts doubt on the BMS :Kapito

“When you go in shops you will find that local products are pegged at high prices as compared to products coming from other countries, if this continue the ministers are the ones to buy local products not ordinary Malawians,” said Kapito.

This year, Malawi government through the ministry of Industry and Trade launched BMS as a component of its product expansion and industrialization facilitation.

BMS is expected to complement government’s mission which is to promote industry, trade and private sector development for sustainable economic growth.
