The Malawi government has urged citizens to change their mindset so that the country should stop relying on donors.

Speaking during budget presentation on Friday, minister of finance Goodall Gondwe said Malawians must sweat towards developing the country.

Goodall: Drills Malawians.

Gondwe argued that the country’s economy rests on the shoulders of farmers who work for not more than six months in year.

“I think its high time we need to change our mindset in the way we work as Malawians for instance people work for three to four months in our fields in a year possibly a country can’t develop with this,” said Gondwe.

The minister called for need to engage irrigation farming as a way of ensuring food security in Malawi as reports reveal that half the population is food insecure.

Malawians are expect to contribute K748 billion in the 2016/17 national budget national budget that has been pegged at K1.2 trillion through tax collection.

  5. Good straight talk but give more money those work with hand and skill. Reduce money in the offices and those work with mouth, increase agriculture and industries and those work to produce something. Now all Malawians want to work in offices because they see you put money there and work confortable with big reward, so who’s going to produce,construct,dig and build the country? I see many Malawian engineers,doctors,artisans ran away we underpay them. For example other country welders or fitter get more money than accountant or lawyer but in Malawi we underestimate them. So that is the result

  6. It is the government that is supposed to change its mind set. Do they consult its citizens before getting donor aids? Is it not among themselves? Bullshit!

  7. I Would Wholeheaetedly Embrace This Call If It Was Part Of Our Longterm Plan!!! We Were Pushe Into This Situation Because Our Leaders Can’t Be Trusted By Donors!!! They Have Sticky Fingers That Harvest-with-Abandon From The Till!! Others May Aptly Call Them Kleptomaniacs!!!b

  19. That’s a bold step I entirely concur with minister but seal all the loopholes of systemic looting & plundering of the taxpayer’s hard earned money in the infamous cashgate scandal perpetuated in most govt ministries n agencies.Just introduce sharia law to execute all perpetrators of this nature for deterrent measures to curb that cancerous syndrome that is crippling the social fabric just fancy civil servants have not paid due to some unscrupulous individual I cry for my beloved country please let’s be patriotic to ur country

  20. Malawians are hard workers especially farmers koma mbeu zao sizigulidwa pa mitengo yoenela, amaluza chaka ndi chaka yet you expect them to produce more. Alimi ambilinso do not have farming machines, no tunnels for irrigation, fertilizer odula makoni salandila onse

  23. Malawians must sweat towards developng the country?? But those malawians elected you to develop the country and now u are running away from it?

  24. This is wat we call brushit Mr Gondwe. Untill when we must sweat? Mukukanika kutsegula timakampani topanga tommato sosi pena tomato kumawolera mmunda kusowa ogula. Akakhala mango ndiye osanena…. What a hell r u talking about.?

  25. Dziko lathu lodyera anthu osawuka, pame am`bomanu mumagula magalimoto kunja yosalipira misonkho, mumakama yowonda inu fwetseki.

  26. Think About The Poor And Needy People,dont Think That If You Are Rich,every One Is Like You,the MP’s They Are Just Sleeping At The Parliament But The Followers Espect And Really Trust On Them,after Month They Earn Taxes Of The Malawian

  27. Government should be urged to change the mindset because the donors are trying to help but top officials are the first to benefit.

  28. Do they mean every one rely on doners the one who are operating the government are those people who are relying from donors so government should change their mindset

    • Ndiwe munthu opanda nzeru,boma limapanga budget la wina aliyense mmalawi muno unless undiuze kuti siwe mmalawi its okay.monday upite kuchipatala,akakaupatsa mankhwala olemba #ida_foundation omwenso achokera kwa ma donors omwewo.nde iwe ukuti chani?????

    • Man inuyo mungakapemphe chithandizo ku boma la America kapena ku IMF kapena ku EU panokha kapena ndi boma lomwe limapita kukapempha chithandizo ndiye Bomalo lukutiwuza kuti tisinthe mindset yathu yodalila ma donors zilingati kuwuza ana ako kuti musinthe mindset yodalila katapila pamene amakakongola katapilayo simwanayo koma kholo palinzelu

  29. I born as malawi, grew up as malawi, but I’m refugee in my own country because of someone who grown up as an american. kungobwera ku malawi kudzasenza udzu omweta mweta, lero akutumaso inu kuti inu (aDa gondwe) kut tizituluke thukuta panene inu ndi iye(pitala) mukumwa wa tea cremola daily.

    • The only person to develop this country would be Bakili Muluzi because he was indeed a true son of Malawi. The unfortunate thing however was that he never had a formal education back up where he could have a group of friends to place in technical positions of the government. Its rightly not on to entrust those who have learnt outside and have had alien cultural values to rule us. Dr Banda was the same thing although he is regarded as the father of this nation!

  30. Mr Gondwe, its better for you to resign from your office before unbalancing yourself. You want poor people to pay more taxes so that you n your friends to steal more?

  31. Very unfair Mr Minister Sir, you want us to sweat so that you should be sitting phwiiiii in your offices only to increase university fees, imposing heavy taxes,getting too much sitting allowances in parliament,house allowance your school children allowances,fuel allowances,dog allowances, yet by the end of the day no drugs in hosptals and we should start paying, poor internal security hence the continued killing of albinos, corrupt police officers-the traffic,careless spending of our own monrey in your publiv rallies full of propsganda,corrupt recruitment into public service anf dubious offering of contracts. i think you do your home work first Mr Minister sir

  32. Malawians have been sweating for a long time until now but nothing changes,too much thieves starting from the president to the civil servant………malawi sadzatukuka mpaka kalekale.

  33. I also want everyone in this country to pay tax, from top to bottom no exceptions no freebies. Let’s change everyone’s mindset

  34. Citizens that much they know but things will change only if they will realise that thieves are no longer ruling them!

  35. Yes we will sweat I know you will kill us with plenty taxes you want to impose on us but if this tax money will not do the intended job then you are doomed for sure!
