The ruling Malawi Congress Party (MCP) chief executive, Eisenhower Mkaka, has said despite the country experiencing various setbacks, Malawi has hope to change for the better under the leadership of President Lazarus Chakwera.
Mkaka said at a mass rally in Dowa East Constituency – at Nalunga Primary School Ground – hosted by Richard Chimwendo Banda that Malawi’s problems were also being experienced globally.
“There is need for a collective approach to address these setbacks. This is the time to give hope to Malawians that under the leadership of President Dr Lazarus Chakwera, the status quo will change for the betterment of all Malawians,” Mkaka, who is also natural resources minister, said.
He called on Malawians to exercise patience, saying the Chakwera government was in the thick of addressing various problems that have befallen the country.
“There is hope as most donor partners are impressed with the state of governance in the country, and more financial support is creeping in. Dr. Chakwerais doing everything he can to turn around the country,” he said.
On the other hand, Chimwendo Banda wooed the youth to rally behind the MCP-led government and assured his constituents that this year’s Affordable Input Programme (AIP) would be rolled out on time.
The mass rally was attended by MPs across the country, national governing council committee members as well as cabinet ministers.
