The National Campaign Director for the ruling Malawi Congress Party, Honorable Moses Kumkuyu has urged the youths in this country to be demanding the responsibility from the leaders so that once they leave institution of higher learning they are not turned into mere beggars but very responsible citizens for this country.
Kumkuyu made the remarks on Friday evening December 11, 2020 when he held an audience with the Mzuzu University wing of the Malawi Congress Party. Kumkuyu told the jam-packed Mzuzi auditorium that it is long gone time that the youths are reduced to hand clappers for politicians but rather be developed into independent citizens who can develop this country. On this Kumkuyu assured both outgoing students and the rest that the administration of president Lazarus Chakwera has the future of the youths at heart and will make it sure that they don’t live miserable life during and after their education.
Kumkuyu who is also president Chakwera’s advisor on chiefs told the students that president Chakwera and MCP recognises the important sacrificial role universities and colleges played towards the change of government in this country, hence the decision to thank and encourage them to keep playing vital roles in both development and democracy of the country. Here Kumkuyu applauded all Malawians who stood for change at the time DPP used all sorts of intimidations to remain in power including the use of teargas, torcher and arsons.
In his remarks the outgoing president for Mzuzu University wing Mr. Madalitso Gavanala said the students sacrificed their studying time and lives only to see Malawi changing for better a thing he said is worthy recognition. He then thanked the leadership of MCP for considering visiting them saying it has strengthen the wing even more than before.
