A Response to the Catholic Bishops’ letter by Comrade Alhaaj imraan jumbe.

In a recent letter, the Catholic bishops of Malawi have raised a crucial point about the Tonse Alliance government’s failure to uphold its pre-election promises. Their unwavering commitment to the well-being of the people and the nation is commendable, reflecting a Godly spirit and true patriotism. Their stance serves as a beacon of hope for the marginalized and disenfranchised.

It’s high time we acknowledge the invaluable role played by religious leaders in advocating for social justice and holding those in power accountable. However, it’s not just the Catholic bishops who should be lauded; indeed, we long for a united front from all denominations and religious associations in Malawi, including Muslim associations, to champion the cause of the people.

The disillusionment with politicians and their empty promises is palpable. We’ve grown weary of being fed grandiose visions of bullet trains and prosperity, only to see our hopes dashed and our pockets emptied. This is not democracy; it’s a betrayal of trust and a mockery of the democratic principles we hold dear.

Under the guise of democracy, a select few enrich themselves at the expense of the masses, wielding power as a license to plunder the nation’s coffers. This winner-takes-all mentality perpetuates a cycle of corruption and impunity that further entrenches poverty and suffering among our people.

Enough is enough. We demand zero tolerance for corruption and a radical overhaul of our political landscape. It’s time to redefine the social contract between citizens and politicians. Campaign promises should not be mere rhetoric but solemn pledges under oath, legally binding and enforceable. Any deviation from these promises should be met with severe consequences, including imprisonment for those who betray the public trust.

Greed and corruption have exacted a heavy toll on our nation, robbing us of our dignity and potential. Those who steal from the poor commit nothing short of murder, condemning countless individuals to lives of hardship and despair.As citizens, we must reclaim our power and hold our leaders accountable. It’s only through collective action and unwavering determination that we can usher in the change we so desperately need. Let us heed the call of the Catholic bishops and strive for a Malawi where justice, integrity, and compassion reign supreme.

My pen is mightier than a sword.
