100 Vehicles to Police: A round of applause to Mutharika or shame to Malawi?

193

While the dynamic leadership of Professor Peter Mutharika is being hailed for the 100 vehicles from China, it has been observed that Malawi could have bought the vehicles on its own if public funds were not stolen.

The Chinese government has lived up to its promise of donating 100 vehicles to Malawi government to take away the long-time challenge of transport that police officers were facing.

The donated vehicles to Malawi police.

An amount of K4 billion is said to have been used by the Chinese government to fulfill the promise that was made in 2014.

On Monday China is to officially hand over the vehicles to Malawi government at a ceremony to be graced by Mutharika.

As the country is applauding China for the kind gesture, the jubilation that people have on the donation should somehow be accompanied with questions.

Police is one government agencies that was crippled with poor service delivery due to mobility challenges and it has taken the Chinese government to bail out the country from the problem with K4 billion while government officials steal billions of taxpayers’ money.

It has been argued that Malawi could have bought these cars long ago if for example over K20 billion was not stolen during the era of former President Joyce Banda.

Economic expert Henry Kachaje says Malawi would have bought the cars on its own if there was no corruption.

“This is a figure far less than what we probably steal from our own revenues, because we would rather enrich ourselves than build our nation,” wrote Kachaje on his Facebook account.

He further faulted government expenditure citing the “whooping K64 million” that is to be used for refurnishing of the office of Chief Secretary to the Government at a time when socio-economic challenges are a sad reality that Malawians are living on.

Kachaje added that he cannot be applauding the president for begging vehicles when the Malawi leader allows public funds to be wasted.

As Malawi is to be receiving the 100 vehicles reports reveal that the country needs 500 vehicles to deal with mobility problem to our police officers and it is yet to be known whether Mutharika is to beg for more vehicles from China as the money sourced from taxpayers is for self-enrichment and not for development.

People who say chinese cars ve durability problems dont know what they are saying infact in 1980s when japanese govt had given MW isuzu pick ups people were saying why not buy VW or Peoget izi zosalimba now after years pipo say dont buy european buy japanese.Chinese cars ve improved tremendously.ku ministry of agric they has these GWM purchased in 2008 they are still running up to now.Most of the buses you are riding achina Teamkwexy are chinese and very good.people who just use perception without research always mislead others.

    • You are very right bro

      We don’t have to worry on engine parts.

  18. Next Monday will beeventually last day for me in MALAWI, cos I will be travelling to England on

    be with you all. Please forward this message to all those who know me. I’ve just forwarded as I
    received it and I dont even know who is travelling.

  19. Point of correction the vehicles have been purchased in the name Malawi police but the truth is they’re for DPP they’ll soon be painted blue ready for 2019 elections campaign believe you me ……..

  20. Umust be very stupid. When Apm distributed free maize to poor malawians in 2016 u brought in Chaponda issue to overshadow his achievement, Today he has offered wht he promised u want to divert our attention….
    Big fools. To hell with u and who ever is sponsoring u

  21. Malawi let’s learn to open link ya mmusiyo nkuwelenga kut ikut bwanj,,,coz monvesesa mwanga zikuonesa kt magalimotowa tachita kupasidwa komanso so ma minibus okha ndi mitundu ingapo ndithu,,,,let’s join hand and say thank u China,,,,

  22. Chinese cars are expensive to maintain due to lack of spares and I believe the plan is to employ a Chinese dealer to service them and charge the govt a fortune in a way of paying back the donation. Nothing for free. Let’s work up!

    • Chinese cars use japanese engines mostly toyota mitsubishi cummins isuzu and nissan very easy to maintain i am talking from experience like GWM double cab uses isuzu engines,Foton 3 tonne uses 3 y engines and 4D33 or isuzu engines, Faw trucks or other trucks use cummins everything,GWM saloons use toyota 1.4 liter 1NZ engines…….

  23. Ngalimoto 10 mupeleke pa nkhata bay POLICE STATION please inu aduna azapolice chifukwa kumeneko ndikufuna kuzikhara chitetenzo chokwima ndisave kt DECEMBER yiyi kwaphedwa munthu ndifuti kapena ndimpeni ndizakupephelerani SOKA lalikulu kwambiri kwa MULUNGU WANGA

  24. Since birth, some of us do not know how to say” Thank you”. We never see good things done by others. If we had bought those vehicles with our own money as a Nation, I would have joined you. But am sorry. This is a donation. We have no say as a nation but to get them and Say thank u China

  25. Chinese vehicles and donated to Malawi police all is upside down! Malawi police and Malawi roads are good for land cruisers from Japan!

  26. Kkkkkkkkkk even if they were 200 in number I see nothing wrong because fighting crime is expensive and requires resources like these but in my view the type of vehicles is what matters. Our roads and these kind of vehicles don’t match
