This is how daft we are as a people. Instead of planning, this so called National Planning Commission is spending time thinking on how they can patronise and impress Chakwera.
Honestly speaking, this award is horse vomit.
Giving APM and Bingu awards was tokenism to justify this insanity. It is the same nonsense of Timothy Mtambo Piece and Unity day that is just providing Chakwera with a platform to sing lullabies to sleepy us.
OChakwera ndi a overall champion of the Malawi 2063 (MW2063)
— The national budget aligns to the vision, pillars and enablers of the MW2063.
— Ability to mobilise resources for projects started by his predecessors, such as the Phalombe District Hospital and Shire Valley Transformation Project.
Obviously, the NPC doesn’t know what the word champion mean, let alone when you combine it with overall.
What they have done is:
Politically silly and insulting to suffering Malawians.
Economically, Malawi is wasting money paying the people at the National Planning Commission.
One would have expected the National Planning Commission to have the best minds to wow and excite Malawians with ideas and plans. Patronising Chakwera is not exciting.
