Atupele lied on fertilizer prices; Is Finance Minister Mwanamveka lying too?

Malawi finance minister Mwanamveka

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-After persistently indicating that it was impossible to slash the price of fertilizer to MK4,495 as promised by Dr Saulos Chilima through UTM and Tonse Alliance, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has lied, oops, promised that fertilizer will be at MK5,000.

However the announcement by Finance Minister Joseph Mwanamvekha in parliament on Friday when he read the 2020/2021 financial plan contradicted what Peter Mutharika’s running mate Atupele Muluzi has been saying that the price will be MK2,500.

“You will be buying a 50 kg fertilizer bag at MK2,500 very soon and this will be in the budget,” Muluzi told a public rally in Salima.

But the sudden change is a clear signal that the slashing is just a political reaction to Tonse alliance and that the DPP doesn’t know the formula behind.

Just this week, Dr. Chilima challenged the government that if they can copy to reduce the price, the government must pay back people MK15,000 per each bag that they bought.

The DPP government and its new bed fellow UDF are notorius liars when it comes to campaign promises.
