MCP Kazombo Says Time Has Come To Set Aside Politics To Develop Malawi; Praises Mutharika

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Member of Parliament for Kasungu East Madalitso Kazombo Friday surprised many during the launch of consultations for developing the successor to Vision 2020 when he used his speech at the ceremony to highlight the challenge of divisive politics Malawi practices putting his party; the Malawi Congress Party and its politics on the spot.

Under the leadership of Lazarus Chakwera, MCP has been mobilizing its supporters in the civil service to sabotage development projects. Chakwera is also criticized for inciting post-Elections violence and burning and demolishing public infrastructure which is key to development.

Kazombo was invited to the launch to deliver a National Assembly commitment to Malawi Vision on behalf of the Malawi Speaker of Parliament.

According to Kazombo who is Deputy Speaker in the Malawi Parliament, Malawi has not achieved much in the Vision 2020 mainly due to lack of unity among politicians.

Kazombo said Malawians political leaders in the opposition are busy playing tribalistic and regionalist politics which is retrogressive.

“ It’s painful to see countries that copied Malawi’s Vision 2020 implementing it while we Malawians, the originators of the document are failing to implement it.“ Kazombo said.

Kazombo: Ndale sakudya!

Kazombo who excited the audience with his speech told the gathering that the main problem with Malawi politics is that the opposition parties in Malawi do not work together with government to bring development.

 “Why can’t we come together with government and join hands to development this country?” Kazombo wondered.

“Ndale sakudya! (We don’t eat politics),” Kazombo thundered to the cheering crowd.

Kazombo was the first to deliver a commitment and he used the opportunity to strongly censor his own Malawi Congress Party which has been sabotaging development projects in Malawi in the name party politics since 1994 when it lost power.

 The MCP legislator then asked the audience to recognize efforts by President Peter Mutharika to development Malawi adding that the President needed support from all politicians to continue developing the country.

 At this juncture Kazombo asked the audience to clap for President Mutharika for being a true statesman and the audience obliged.

The Malawi Vision 2020 strategy was launched in 1998 as the roadmap to Malawi’s Development from 1998 to 2020.

The launch of the Vision 2020 Successor consultations is expected to kick start national wide consultations on the successor Vision.
