Regional Chairman for the North South in the Malawi Congress Party has urged chiefs and party leaders in Mzimba West to support the agenda of President Lazarus Chakwera for meaningful developmental projects in the area, assuring them that Chakwera led administration will not fail to deliver according to its plans.
Joseph Chavula was making the remarks when he met chiefs and party leaders at Enkondhlweni in Mzimba West Constituency.
“I want to assure you that President Lazarus Chakwera is aware of the problems that are in the area and is making sure it gets developed according to his plans. He is aware that others are trying to sabotage his agenda for development but no matter what, President Chakwera will deliver, and those trying to sabotage his agenda for this country will not achieve.” Said Chavula while addressing chiefs and party constituency leaders.
Further, Chavula told the gathering that President Chakwera is not tolerating corruption, and those involved in the vice will face the long arm of the law regardless of their positions and status, for his administration is serving the interest of Malawian citizens.
“Those who are involved in corrupt acts in health facilities or during the sale of AIP this season which has made increased challenges for the program just know that when time is due you will face the law.” Added Chavula while earning applause from the gathering.
But the RC was quick to point fingers on the former governing party DPP for destroying the country with increased corruption and bribery that he said has delayed a lot of meaningful developments.
Chavula then continued to assure them of maximum development, citing the presented 2022/23 National budget currently under scrutiny by the Parliament as a clear indication of President Chakwera’ focus towards building a New Malawi that can enjoy maximum development in all areas, adding that chiefs as custodians of development need to work with the current government to make sure they take projects to their subjects.
Meanwhile, the Mzimba West constituency is to be divided into two constituencies if the proposed demarcation by Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) is to be approved by Parliament.
Among those who accompanied RC Chavula during the tour were the secretary for the region, Dillah Nyimba, Director of Women, Mai Chimpozo, Youth Director, Clement Manda, and other regional committee members.
