Leader of Mass Movement for Economic Revolution who is also Commandant and Secretary General of Malawi First Comrade Redson Munlo, says President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera has no solution to the country’s dwindling economy.
Munlo said President Chakwera from June, 2020 has been going through Try and Error which has seen the Malawi Kwacha losing its value against the American Dollar speaking for itself that he has totally failed in the principles of economics.
He said the issue of fuel has been not resolved since President Chakwera came to power in June, 2020 saying this also applies to Affordable Input Programme (AIP) which has not produced the most intended results of food security in Malawi.
Speaking through an audio clip circulating in various social media platforms, Munlo said the devaluation of the Malawi Kwacha by 44 percent has affected many Malawians completely shuttering their hopes that they have a President to look after their welfare.
Munlo said 44 percent devaluation of the Kwacha is time of crying over Malawi particularly for civil servants saying the government of the MCP cannot raise civil servants’ salaries by 44 percent a development which is worrisome to all.
He said President Chakwera has for 3 years failed to change Malawi and is remaining with 2 years which is almost impossible to change claiming that the endless issues of no medicines in hospitals, forex, fuel, salaries to civil servants will remain a challenge as long as Chakwera continues ruling the country.
The Activist said President Chakwera has failed and is the solution to the country’s problems, he must leave office for the country to move forward claiming that Malawians do not need him to change things, he has failed.
“Chakwera has no clue on how government business is run saying time is now for him to resign honorably by himself or waiting for the 2025 vote or Malawians will force him to resign, Malawians have lost trust in him as their President,” said Munlo.
Munlo has observed that some Malawians are working to misguide fellow Malawians that elections be held on 21st May, 2024 not September, 2025 reminding Malawians that in 2020 a Bill was tabled in Parliament, this was passed into law with the President’s signature and the Ministry of Justice gazetted it in the Republican Constitution.
He has since urged Malawians to fight so hard that the bill be brought back to Parliament to change the election date with a warning that failure by Parliament to deliberate on the date, elections date still stands September, 2025.
