Politicians should have retirement age – PP

119

The opposition People’s Party (PP) says there should be age limit for political leaders since some politicians fail to deliver due to old age.

Speaking in an interview with Malawi24, PP General Secretary Ibrahim Matola said Malawi needs young people in political positions in the country hence politicians should be forced to retire at a certain age.

Matola: Malawi needs young people in political positions.

“How old is the minister of finance? These are people that just sleep in conferences instead of contributing.

“We need to have young people that can contribute meaningfully to the development of this country, the same happens with people working in others sectors when they reach a certain age they are forced to retire so why not politicians?” wondered Matola.

He added that age limit will also help the youth in the country to be taking leadership roles in various political parties in the country.

Malawi is yet to set an age limit for president, Members of Parliament (MPs) and cabinet ministers.

  6. Oh yes!continue that and you hear how these thieves will deny it,but tell them to increase their salaries,allowancies,get their utilities.they will rush kugwa ndi kugwa majekete yambakataa!A kamphulika(warthogs) amenewa!to discuss about meager salaries of malawians,they dont dare.these slave drivers!!eeh you politians get off gimme justice and equal rights.mkhalamba zogwa nkumina uzimva voterani ine ndzakupangi… chimbama chili padiso asanamalize bodza lakelo.

  8. At same point good leadership it’s not about age,
    It takes thoughtfulness,high integrity,intelligence and 3rd eye to be good leader

  9. meet Sebastian Kurz,,, he is now becoming the Austria’s Presdent this Sunday,, he is just 31 ,,,More than 45 yrs younger than our own Presdent,,, and we are proud with this person who cannot even remember names of his children. Malawians lets wake up, running a country requires fresh mind

  10. Ngati a pp mukutero, kumeneku ndi kupha ufulu wa a malawi osalakwa miyanda, miyanda. Mupite ku MEC akakupaseni mayina a zipani zimene zinali ndi achinyamata odziwika bwino. Ndiye mufunse a malawi kuti: chifukwa chiyani sanavotere zipani za achinyamawo. Yankho mulipeza.

  11. Not only polititians, and the same have to apply to those working in public sector, even if it means to reduce the retirement age to at least 50yrs old to pave way for the ‘unemployed youths’ which is highly rated…

  12. i think amalawi umphawi wangotikwana ndiye tikusowa zokamba,take examples from great and properous natiöns like america and china,if their leaders do not have resignation, age who are we?do you really know the meaning of politics

  13. I definitely support the idea coz in the political circle,the elderly always cling to until they forced/impeached this is a hackle raising issue.They keep changing from one party to another were they feel its succulent and lot of cash to spice themselves,if a law can be enacted to set an age limit.

  14. Amalamulo Asachedwe,akadutsa Zaka 65 Akumagona Kuwofesi Chifukwa Chawukalamba,nanga Abulan Mpinganjila Akufuna Chiyani.

  15. Very agree with this ,Retirement needed to pave the way to young politicians who are are failed to come out because geedy old people and one thing i know when someone become old even his thinking capacity become Law and malo mopanga chitukuko amaganiza zomamanga manda odula kumaganiza kuti azakapindulako chifukwa cha ukalamba munthu so amakhala wa mwano komaso kudelera maganizo azeru anzeru ochokera kwa achichepele

  16. Dyera ndilimene atsogoleriwa alinalo enawa amakhala pansi panyanja kumapembeza milungu yawo chuma sichiakwanira kuti ena ayese nawo

  17. Vuto la Malawi ndi umphawi osati zaka za atsogoleri. Lets just get together to get a mean of economic transformation. Thats it and nothing else.

  18. These magogos should retire mwe!! Abilities naturally go down as you get old………… we are employing pensioners for very critical positions, what is wrong with us????

  19. Koma ndi zoonadi! Vuto munthu akamakalamba amakhara waliwuma, osafuna kumva za ena!! Samalabadira za ena!!

  20. Ok,it make sense but tikawapatsa retirement period simuzithawanso milandu ya macashgate,maizegate&ulaniumgate kukayerekera?no pansion azikafera kundende basi!!

  21. Just cos kamuzu was old ppl shld not change? Why dd we change to democracy then? Tramp shldnt be our yard stick this is Malawi we have oiur oiwn laws different from those of USA

  22. ku malaw kuno ndale zimakhala ngat ufit.ukayamba wayamba bas..but ths is a welcome idea.anyway.n their must be also starting age..

  23. Mmm It Doesnt Make Sense Coz When People Feel That These Politicians Are Unable To Deliver, Its Up To Them Not To Vote Them Again Into Power. There Are Other Old People Who Are Able To Deliver.

    • Remember those old politicians joined politics when they were young and they have potential to win coz they have influence in their sites. So if age is going to be their limt, there will be chances to a chinyamata like you.

    • @#diniwa. Its Ur Opinion That People Can Be Influenced Negatively. As Old As Iam I Cant Be Influenced By Money Or Whatever Those Old Politicians Display. For Example If Peter Is Voted Again Into Power, That Wil Not Mean We Are Influenced To Vote For Him, But The Issue Is People Have Seen Something Good In Him. Anthu Anazuka Kalekale And They Cant Be Influenced In That Way. DONT FORGET WAT HAPENED TO JB.

    • Mr Koller Wat U Should Knw Is Achinyamatafe We Cant Deliver Without Help From The Old. Tisamanamizane We(youth)cant Do It Alone
