National Youth Director for the ruling Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Bulldozer Chimwendo Banda says youth and women are the driving force behind Malawi’s development route as they play an instrumental role in transforming the socioeconomic architecture of the country.

Chimwendo who is also Local Government, Unity and Culture Minister was speaking on Saturday at a rally he pitched in his Dowa East Constituency at Nsipe Primary School as part of celebrating his 45th birthday where several Cabinet Ministers, MCP Members of Parliament, top party officials attended.

He was born on June 4, 1978.

In his speech, he said government of Dr Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera believes that women and the youth if they are decorated with entrepreneurship skills can transform this country’s socioeconomic landscape.

“The duty of government is to bring reforms in the systems that are “friendly and conducive to women and youth” and for sure women and youth will deliver the results because they are hard working when it comes to self-empowerment.

“We will continue to pursue policies that promote women’s equal rights so that they participate in development process and national building. It is also vital to strengthen women’s capacity building and increase their social harmony and inclusiveness. And that more attention must be given to elderly, people with disabilities and other vulnerable women groups among others so that “nobody is left behind,” said Chimwendo Banda.

He has also assured the people of Dowa East that he will continue in his quest to transform the area by bringing more developments such as piped water, health facilities, school blocks among others.

Guest of Honour at the rally Sosten Gwengwe who is also the Minister of Finance hailed President Chakwera for trusting the youths to be part of his government with senior leadership positions regardless of ethnicity.

Gwengwe also lauded Chimwendo Banda for putting policies that will help his constituency to develop.

At the rally veteran politician Chatinkha Nkhoma announced his defecation from DPP to MCP.

In her speech, she said DPP lacks leadership at the moment hence she has decided to “jump the ship.”

Several Ministers and party top brass graced the “birthday party rally.”
