Chairperson of Clergy Initiative for Integral Development (Cide) Father Michael Mtambo said as the elections draw near, Malawians should be careful when choosing the next president as any mistake could be costly.
Speaking during an interview over the week, Mtambo said, development of this country depends on who Malawians choose to become president.
“As the country is, we cannot say things are working, we have seen that there is no medicine in hospitals, funding in various governments departments have been reduced and most importantly, donor aid has been frozen; where is this county going?” said Mtambo.
According to Mtambo, Malawians have suffered a lot.
He called on Malawians to express their dissatisfaction through the ballots.
“And then there is the famous cashgate, we need answers. Tax payers money was used recklessly and because of this, Malawi is in a sorry state, hence the frozen aid. This government has lost the trust of many people. If Malawians want to graduate from poverty, then we need to think twice about whom we want to lead us for the next five years,” he added.
