Wanton Plundering at Capital Hill: Germany Suspends Aid to Malawi, VP Kachali Speaks Broken EnglishGermany, one of Malawi’s western donor partners has withdrawn all the aid that it was giving to this southern Africa country. A senior Germany diplomat has confirmed of the decision made in the capital, Berlin on Friday.
“Following the events that have been happening in Malawi in the last two weeks, relevant officials met in Berlin yesterday, Friday where unfortunately a decision was taken to withold all the aid our country provides to Malawi,” said the official.
He said meanwhile, Berlin is preparing a statement to pass on to their Lilongwe counterparts on the latest position taken by Germany.
The diplomat, said the events happening in Malawi in the last two weeks are self explanatory that there is no leadership in the country.
“Honestly, I wonder how Malawians can be so patient with the events happening in their country like this,” he said. Meanwhile, another western diplomat has spoken on how they grilled Malawi’s Vice President Khumbo Kachali and his delegation Thursday afternoon.
“Every simple question to them became complicated. Worse was the fact that the leader of the Malawi delegation, Vice President Kachali failed to properly communicate in good English expected of a person of his position,” disclosed the diplomat.
The official, spoke of how every sentence from Kachali ended in a ‘sorry’ to the western partners. “As donors, we told the VP, we can not be aiding thieves, the country lucks leadership and shows no commitment to end the cancer which unfortunately seems to be promoted and entertained by the highest office in the land,” he said.
Meanwhile, President Joyce Hilda Mtila Banda remains overseas, 12 days after she presented her speech to the UN General Assembly. President Banda left Malawi on the 16th of September, 2013 clocking 3 weeks outside the country now.
It is understood that President Banda has been in a Texas hospital receiving treatment for high Blood Pressure which shot up following revelations of Rampant corruption and the arrests of individuals to whom she is personally connected.
