“Slow down on travels Mr President Chakwera, Our taxes deserve better usage!

Chakwera accused of travelling too much

By Nenenji Mlangeni

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera has been nicknamed Siku Transport by some quarters of the society. People calling Chakwera as Siku Transport claim the President has been all over the place these past few months.

According to a statement shared by a State House Facebook page, the incumbent was on Friday, December 4, 2020 at Mponera, Dowa to inspect a greenhouse farm.

These are one of daily local outings Chakwera is making while wasting taxpayers money.

These tours are not even worthy President Chakwera to carry which could his ministers were to be assigned.

People commenting on the post have mocked Chakwera over what they say is lack of seriousness at his job as President, earmarking him for the moniker – Siku Transport – because of his busy travelling schedule.

Siku is one of Malawi’s largest and oldest transporting company. The company’s slogan Here tonight, there tomorrow was recently changed to Here Today, There Tomorrow which others believe best describes Chakwera’s never ending journeys.

The Siku Transport is back on the road – tomorrow. This time, not the company.

“Siku Transport…Here Today There Tomorrow”, commented Kayoyo Kayoyo.

“Komatu zoyendazi zaonjeza osatumizako Hon Lowe or Vice President bwanji? When is he gonna start working from capital Hill? He is the first civil servant remember nde mmene akuyenderamu khalidwe la ma CEO ongokhalira kunyanja kudya ma allowance mmalo momagwira ntchito mma office lingathe?” queried another.

One Malawi Congress Party (MCP) supporter told Chakwera to listen to people’s advice to cut his hovering.

“Nthawi zina ndibwino kumamvako zonena za anthu. Daily function? I’ m MCP fan but this is too much”.

“Kupita ku munda mpaka dziko lonse lidziwe?” wrote one person.

Anytime, Anywhere, Any Place, Any ‘Road’, Chakwera is arguably on the move and, in Kayoyo’s observation, ALWAYS.

Since June 23, 2020 Presidential victory, Chakwera has made six foreign trips: Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa and Botswana while carrying heavy entourage of more than 50 delegates.

Why all this Mr President? Don’t you have much work already on your desk to fix Malawi’s broken economy.

Chakwera has forgotten already the way he was bashing his predecessors on global and local trotting.

These travels can be avoided by engaging other meeting virtually than physical travel that cost the country dearly.

You can do better, Mr President, Malawians slow are loosing the hope had on Tonse administration.
