Borrow money for 6 July celebrations – Opposition tells Govt

115

Opposition Umodzi Party (UP) President John Chisi has urged Malawi government to borrow money for this year’s Independence Day celebrations arguing that it is an important day for the country.

The development follows reports that Malawi will not have the celebrations on July 6 due to financial hiccups that the country is grappling with. Reacting on the matter, Chisi blamed government for calling off the national event arguing that the decision does not make any sense.

Chisi; Made the call.

“First of all this is a national event and we do have it once in a year I don’t think putting aside it makes sense, if government has no money it should go and borrow for us to celebrate,” said Chisi.

He added that if government fails to provide resources for the event it should not organise any political rally in the country.

When making the announcement earlier this week, Chief Secretary to the Malawi Government George Mkondiwa said there will just be a national service of worship in commemoration for the day Malawians attained self-rule from its colonial master Britain.

Last year, Malawi government used K300 million for its 51st Independence Day celebrations held in Blantyre.

  1. What Chisi is saying is true. If the government is broke why waste tax payers money trotting around in the name of development rallies. The whole president goes on a podium to clarify an issue of zitchetche and not zitete as per reports. Let government cancel these so called development rallies for us to believe their seriousness otherwise it doesnt make sense.

  2. Koma abale.akulu bvumbwe wotanda pa tsekera, Chisi waganiza bwanji?pano anthu Ali tchire kukumba mbewa,kusaka ziwala.inunso mukuti boma libwereke ndalama.koma inu achisi.munapita ku tchalichi koma?mufuna mugwese boma inu,back to school Chisi.

  5. But.. The funny thing is that.. Since they started the preparations..each and everyday they make a meeting everyone who attend the meeting goes home with 40000 allowance just for 2 hour meeting..

  6. Ppl who always like celebrations insist it to happen even if they see the gvt is completely broke,there are things that you can do without,like celebrations,than forcing matters if you don’t have capacity to do.Ppl are hungry & you insist that the gvt must borrow money for celebrations,doesn’t make any sense,better to buy food for ppl.

  9. I think these opposition members r all batches of rotten bananas,how can a normal person think of borrowing money with the aim of spending at sun ‘n’ sand yet he z failing to pay for his family medical bills?stupid point from stupid person.

  10. Celebrating independece tidzisangalalapo chani apa chonsecho umphawi uli thoo! Tisangalalira njala, kusowa mankhwala mzipatala, kusowa chitetedzo mdziko? Moreover independence ili pati dziko lakuti limadalira kupempha kwa azungu omwewo? Ndiye mpakana boma litenge ngongole? Nanunso a Chisi penapake mumakhala ngati mumasuta fodya bwanji…

  11. It’s about time we the young, take over the reigns in Malawi and steer the country in a new direction. For far too long these old men n women have such the coffers dry and there is nothing left to loot.We want our country back!!!!!!!

  12. Use the money to buy food and drugs for the hospitals. Those who want to celebrate the day can go to a bar and drink beer and dance kwasakwasa. Or buy fanta and enjoy. If you are bored go and look for mbewa.

  13. Is this the same Chisi who had run for president and is also a doctor? I think he is a doctor of Cocaine,kikikikiki.

    Chisi, let me tell you: you are showing no morals for your country to agitate for independence celebrations. Your country needs development and feeding of its people and not celebrations- celebrating what? Celebrating poverty? As far as I know, Malawi is not independent if reality is to be considered. The reason why Malawi is not independent is because it keeps receiving donor Aid to support its budget and even receives food Aid. The other reason is Malawi is being controlled by countries that support it, and even its laws e.g same sex marriage laws can not be fully applied on cases affecting its citizens because donors sniff into them.In general , the country is too poor and too weak to take pride in independence.
