Chakwera challenges the nation to sacrifice for change

President Lazarus Chakwera has emphasised the need for leaders to embrace making sacrifices for the country to achieve its goals.

The president made the remarks on Thursday during the opening of the 7th annual conference of the Dynamic Leaders and Gatekeepers Forum (DLGF) at the Bingu International Conference Centre in Lilongwe.

Chakwera highlighted the need for Malawians to not give up on the fight for change, since giving up may slow the quest to improve things in the country.

“As a nation, we need to endure challenges we may encounter in the course of wanting change and we should not walk away from things when they get overwhelmingly tough.

“The roles of leaders and gatekeepers include training the people we lead to endure and making sure that ourselves are examples of endurance,” Chakwera said.

Executive Chairperson for DLGF Revered Dr Zacc Kawalala stressed the need for Malawians to be patriotic enough to achieve the needed change and development that the country requires.

He said: “Rebuilding Malawi will need people who will sacrifice and unite for the greater good of the nation, that can happen if we look at what we have and where we are now.”

Kawalala further said Malawians must be brave enough to take part in the rebuilding process as it costs and needs more effort from patriotic citizens.

Malawi Communication Regulatory Authority (MACRA) Director General, Daud Suleman said we need to build a digital nation to rebuild the country.

“The country needs to build its digital infrastructure by investing in broadband internet and data centres to allow more people to have easy access to the internet. The digital transformation can help in the economic growth,” Suleman said.

The conference was held under the theme ‘The rising of patriots for change in Malawi: Counting the cost and rebuilding the nation’.
