If I were, President of the Republic of Malawi, I would realise that while my statement during the launch of the Public Finance Management Reform Programme on April 10 was inspiring, there was an area on laxity in enforcing procurement procedures where I appeared to be contradicting myself.
If I were APM, I would recall that at the time I was a Cabinet minister, I was one of those accused to have bought Malawi Housing Corporation (MHC) houses at below market value and, therefore, it will be difficult for people to take me seriously now when I am accusing some officials of buying public vehicles at token prices.
If only I were the President, I would realise that it is important to realise that Malawians will always judge me not by what I say, but what I have done and what I do.
By the way, people are still wondering how that controversy ended and perhaps it would do me good if I assure the public that I no longer own that MHC house that sparked controversy.
That is if only I were APM, unfortunately I am just a mere scribe that is Garry.
