Leader of opposition Lazarous Chakwera has openly asked Malawians to ‘wake up from their slumber’ if the country is to develop and could not hide his frustrations at the Peter Mutharika administration.
The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President titled his response to the State of the nation address made by Mutharika on Friday as “Dzukani A Malawi (Wake Up Malawians)”.
In his response, Chakwera argued that the reforms that the Peter Mutharika led government has implemented are useless and not helpful at all.
While branding Mutharika as a liar, Chakwera said the reforms have failed the country’s economy from stabilizing.

Chakwera says ”’Reforms are just not making sense when theres hunger, food shortages, drugs shortages and insecurities in Malawi.”
The opposition leader said the hunger situation that hit Malawi as a result of poor planning by the government.
He argues that there is more of talking and not ‘doing’ on the part of the government citing the greenbelt initiative among others.
