Mirece Asks Parties Choose New Blood For 2025 Elections

A human rights organization on good governance, the Millennium Information and Resource Centre [Mirece], has appealed to all political parties in Malawi to give chance to new blood ahead of 2025 elections.
The Mirece has observed that in most democratic countries like Malawi, if one has failed to deliver, he or she must give chance to others to show their potentials saying if Malawi had earlier on adopted this principle, many areas and the country would have developed by now.
The organization has noted with a great concern that all politicians the country is having today are painted with corruption, bribery and embezzlement of funds in public service on their faces and these are strategizing to bounce back into government in 2025.
Writing in a statement, the organization’s Director Reverend Flywell Somanje said time has now come for these failed and corrupt leaders to rest for new faces saying keep on electing these people in government, Malawi will remain poor forever.
Reverend Somanje has since advised Malawians to start identifying new leaders who could transform the country in governance, politically, economically and agriculturally for people to differentiate that in new leaders, there is mindset change for the country.
He said former presidents Ngwazi Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda and Professor Bingu wa Mutharika are being remembered by Malawians for setting a good vision for Malawi, they were visionary leaders, they wanted Malawi to change from being the poorest to a middle-income country.
….’’They died without seeing their vision come true, Malawi is poor today because of lacking good and visionary leaders, May their sole rest in eternal peace,’’…..said Somanje.
He claimed that in all the political parties Malawi is having, there are good and visionary leaders but they are not given chance to deliver their potentials, they are being pulled back by the same leaders who take themselves as servant leaders while not.
Reverend Somanje said it is his strong wish that Malawians in 2025 elect torchbearers and not politicians who are thieving in government in the name of servant leadership for the country to see meaningful change.
He called upon Malawians to do away with leaders who are liars and have nothing to offer except thieving in government to enrich themselves at the expense of the poor saying politics is not chieftainship inheritance.
