    How is it that all commissioning of every area is having one name, what are ministers going to commission. It is only in a Dictator country where you find one name every where. Leadership is best where they is shared responsibility among all the work force from a cleaner to the top most level. Individualism will never bring development in any field. Not only is it very expensive to have the head of state commission grave yards when there is a local government minister whose intureradge will not involve all service chiefs. Now there is even this clear recklessness where one wants to re introduced Deputy ministers with no work.

        P.M u sound frustrated. Your degrees seem not to be earning you anything. Don’t blame it on anybody, not even the President. It’s not their fault that you have failed to sell your value.

    The job description, is the problem! Let’s hope it does not attract those huge allowances. While the presidents have had immunity while in office in which they can over- exercise some powers, the problem comes when they leave office. When the late FTJ (MHRIP) went flat out disbursing Presidential Slash Funds it looked like a normal Presidential responsibility, but to some of us it looked deicitful and foresaw trouble for him when out of office and it came to pass. He must have spent a substantial amount of money paying lawyers during his court cases; part of which he accumulated from allowances during his tenure of office. Remember his successor set a removal of immunity precedency in this country. I would think that some of the meetings with stakeholders like chiefs should be held at State House while most of the projects should be commissioned by Ministers and PS’s to save money spent on huge Presidential contingencies’ allowances unless during these times the civil servants involved have foregone these entitlements, which is unlikely, the economy is bleeding unnecessarily. No politics involved, just thinking.

    But here in chama he commissioned two roads 1year ago but nothing is happening, is it just a ceremony to show that he is working or what? For those who know chama district in muchinga province the roads am talking about are muyombe turnoff to lundazi and again muyombe turnoff to isoka via muyombe. These two roads become impassable during rain season.In chama and muyombe we don’t see the reason to vote for pf in 2021 if these two roads have not been worked on.

    Are these projects completed or about? The cost of living must also be inspected carefully .

    Open CBU. Students must not roam the streets for too long, they have the brains to be better future leaders than most of those cadres around you.
