Malawians are lazy – Govt


Government through its spokesperson Nicholas Dausi has faulted the country’s citizens for being lazy saying the laziness is the reason for poverty in Malawi.

The sentiments follow a statement by Public Affairs Committee (PAC) that blamed the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government for failing to improve the lives of citizens.

PAC disclosed that corruption is blocking the country’s drive to prosperity among the citizens of Malawi.

Dausi says Malawians are lazy.

However, Malawi’s minister of information Dausi has said Malawians lack a spirit of hardwork to develop the country.

“Look around the urban and rural set up you will note that Malawians work for three months, the rest of the months we don’t work,” said Dausi.

He then urged authorities to consider helping the citizenry to be hardworkers to avert the poverty levels.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently disclosed Malawi’s economy looks promising with its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) going up as the country expects a bumper maize harvest.

The economy fell below 3 percent in 2016 due to poor climatic conditions in the three previous years. It is however expected to grow in the range of 4-5 percent this year.

    1. Alex. kkkkkkkkk you have made my day. This is the truth, all lazy people including failures in life go into politics. While in politics they do not work hard to change the social economic situation in Malawi which has always been in bad state since 1994 but they also steal from our taxes big time.
