No money to buy maize – Malawi govt

201

The Malawi Government says it does not have money to buy maize soon from abroad or from within the country.

Confirming the development to one of the local radio station was minister of finance, economic planning and development Goodall Gondwe who said there is no money to purchase maize.

The development comes at a time when there almost half the country’s population have been affected by hunger.

Goodall Gondwe and Peter Mutharika

‘We have no money’ Goodall Gondwe seems as telling President Peter Mutharika (Library).

“We have not gone far because we were supposed to do that with the help of loan from suppliers’ credit, but that has not succeeded. The loan was too expensive for a country like Malawi.

“So, we will find other means of getting the money to buy the maize,” said Gondwe.

On Wednesday, Malawi President Peter Mutharika went on the biggest of political stages to ask for support on the hunger crisis in the country.

Mutharika sought the assistance while addressing the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, USA.

The Malawi leader told the audience that his government is currently doing all it can to provide food for the hunger victims.

“However, we need and seek external support of our cooperating partners and multilateral institutions within and outside the UN systems. We still need US$246 million for this cause,” Mutharika said.

He added that if Malawi can get the money, the country will be able to end the current hunger crisis.

  13. TO FEED YOUR OWN MOUTH AND SELF ACCUMULATED TEAM OF CHILDREN ,YOU RELY ON YOUR PRESIDENT ..? WHAT ARE MEN FOR ? (if you can not feed yourselves stop the process of manufacturing children;otherwise there is need for comparsory vacectomy for all of you .) THERE IS AN AMBUNDANCE OF MAIZE STOCK EVERYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY INCLUDING CHAKWERA’S AND YOUR RESPECTIVE HOMES. FIND OTHER THINGS OF VALUE TO BLAME GOVERNMENT OR ELSE REVISIT YOUR HISTORY AND PARENTAGE AUTHENTICITY.

  14. I think what I heard last week about this govt is true. “Millions of kwachas are being spent to fund Ant-Chakwera team in MCP just to get rid of APM greatest threat, and to fight Bushiri”. But if this is true, then DPP could have shown mercy on Malawians by using taxpayers money for good cause.

  15. Nonsenu kupsa mitimako mumadikira kuti boma ligule chimanga choti azakugawireni ulere??? Hehehehe we are ndalamaless now. I’ve only managed to buy chimanga choti tizagulitse in ADMARC depots osati chokugailani ulere.

    • Bingu was a genius, in fact this young brother got the votes coz people thought that perhaps the leadership style runs in the blood

    • U can ask that again. Surely what are they doing in government? Why is there a government anyway? They are busy for nothing

    • I was there when the late Bingu passed away it took that Lady just one week to clear the mud and fixing up the mess he left.. The issue here is that these African leaders stand up to the West but have no leg to stand on……so the West punish them in times of need like this ….where are the Chinese ? They just hear about diplomacy ,they dont deserve to be called politicians…you cant have pple starving to save ur own pride…rather swallow it.

  17. Yhooo i don’t understand where are that money you have received from other countries to help malawi, you are spending money for destroying mcp only and you forget that people knows that malawi received money from donors. Shame on you! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. I can’t understand this,yet we are being led by a highly educated person.Lk @Poul Kagame the way he administer Rwanda,his country is developing more rapidly than ours.What’s wrong with the current regime?We suffered during Kamuzu era,we suffered again wt Muluzi,Mutharika.When are we going to sing a song of praise?every time tears.My fellow Malawians corruption is a sin& hell is real.

  32. what happened to the Billions the international community helped us with??? When the President, Peter, called for help, many foreign governments and international Organizations responded positively to the call.
