What do you think caused such an abrupt modification that redundantly poured into an economic meltdown to the point that most previously long running companies that were established either before or after independence that benefited during the BBM era found themselves downsizing, privatizing & at times completely closing down. Most of all, increased pricing of everyday common goods surfaced in the entire nation for the Malawi consumer whose average cost of living sky rocketed whereas the earnings remained at a standard level.

The Tobacco industry worldwide has decreased the buying value of raw materials (Tobacco Leaf) and yet have increased the marketing cost of the finished product (Cigarettes) as a resultant to the health concerns and a worldwide campaign to stop smoking Nicotine for the extreme addictive nature to smokers & non-smokers alike whom risk developing cancerous cells that causes cancer, a chronic disease that has threatened and taken many people’s lives. However, Tobacco remains the number one export commodity in Malawi which brings in approximately over 60% in revenue to the country’s economy together with all agricultural produce besides being the major export for Malawi.

  1. Essential Agendas With National Interest & Concerns:

 

  1. The Youth Coalition & Sports:

 

  1. The Malawi National Football Team (Flames) & The Malawi National Netball Team (Queens), their respective technical panels & administrative officials have been obviously underfunded & partially supported by the governing bodies to fully exercise their potential & expertise in the trade. This matter comprises of various facilities & equipment employed for an even more successful competency at an international level and yet are expected to perform beyond their aptitude given less than enough training time & resources
  2. Sports is a form of art that could be incredibly beneficial to the youth & an exceptionally lucrative industry if efficiently capitalized & fully furnished by either the incumbent officials or corporate & private sponsors
  3.

What would your government & the proposed administration do to modify the Quota System that has presently been situated & deprived a myriad promising adolescent Malawians from pursuing their studies in the Malawian Government academia & reinstate either the formerly or more decent system that would persuade the young Malawians from attaining a more suitable future for besides they are the future of the nation & potential leaders of tomorrow whom once invested vigilantly could contribute & further become an assert to a rather defining moment of the Malawian society & may be the political, social, economic, spiritual or academic structure of the continent of Africa in the new millennium

 

Jumani Kamuzu Banda paternal Case & His Excellency, Ngwazi Dr. Kamuzu Banda Will:

The Case of Juman Kamuzu Banda is of National interest for Malawian Citizenry as a child whom Malawians in Malawi & the Diaspora Region assess from all physical evidence seem to depict him as an official heir of the Father & Founder of the Malawian Nation & First President of the Republic of Malawi, His Excellency, Ngwazi Dr. Kamuzu Banda

The Case of a missing Will of The Father & Founder of The Malawi Nation is absurd & despicable to the Nation at large in a World stand point & The Government aught to do something to minimize such obnoxious stance

 What would you & the proposed administration do to have a final resolution to these subject matters that should have never been ignored & foster a DNA testing so as to come into conclusion of the status quo without forgetting impending case of the official will which should have been resolved far way back after the encounter occurred which is terrifically unfortunate & should have never lingered

 

The Madonna Case & Ministry of Education:

The Minister of Education, Honorable Eunice Kazembe came to the Media to denounce Madonna’s Raising Malawi Organization from claiming that they have teamed up with BuildOn to Build ten (10) primary schools after abandoning the original project where there were misappropriation of funds by the Malawian superiors that were in charge of orchestrating the prominent project & suing the singer in return which seems very unfortunate & unwelcoming for those whom would assure fostering development & encouraging pursuits to the economic, social & academic development in the country

What would your government & the proposed administration do to petition a new encouraging message to those whom see the encounter as a setback to their developmental engagements in Malawi & endowments of necessities to the nation

 

Excessive Presidential Motorcade & Extreme Traveling of The Number One Citizen:

The country has experienced an enormous economic meltdown from the devaluation of the country currency which has affected the nation’s financial treasuries, yet the number one citizen & the current administration and other previous administrations ever since the Referendum & Democratic governance have amassed tax payers capital in excessive traveling abroad & within the country even under circumstances where the project or engagement could be carried out by either our Malawian Foreign Representatives, Diplomats, Malawian Dignitaries or further Public Officials

What would you & the proposed administration do to minimize such excessive roving creating an enormous deficit in the economic governance & business of the nation & depicting a burden in the governmental essential financial reservoirs

 

 Systematic Electoral Organization to Administer All Major Malawian Elections:

Malawian Democratic elections are a source of pride to the nation & a milestone achievement of essence to the Malawian citizen given the uncertainties of Democracy in various African countries & most parts of the world at large, therefore should be very much respected by the governing body in the nation & should be absolutely free of redundant interference from any political entity & selfish intrusions of all sorts

How would you & the proposed administration ensure that the laws & rules of engagements in the electoral commission organization are being esteemed

 

 Power Shortages by The Electricity Supply Commission of Malawi (ESCOM):

Power shortages & mismanagement of the main supplier of electricity in the nation, The Electricity Supply Commission of Malawi (ESCOM) is disheartening. The persistence of unprecedented occurrence of unwarranted scarcity of electricity supply in the country is agonizing and repulsive to every nature of investment that would endorse national development & universal progress for the country to be consistently competitive in the global market. There aught to be a practicable resolution to these sorts of negligence

What will you & the proposed administration embark upon in this dilemma to attract foreign benefactor & local patrons & shareholders

 

Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) & Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs):

Non-governmental organizations & non-profit organizations accumulate thousands & millions of monetary donations from the society in good fortitude to assist in the various services & products the respective organizations convey to their relevant audience & have meticulously impacted our communities tremendously in a variety of ways. However, there are numerous human exploitations such as, abuse of power, corruption, racketeering & money laundering, just to name a few, in the name of providing good will services & merchandise that emerge apparently due to inadequate government monitoring & unaccountability practices of these associations & absence of independent auditing entities for such institutions

What standards will your government & the proposed administration implement to restrain such reprehensible practices in avoiding abuse of resources & probably eliminate all together these establishments from taking advantage of the situation & the most vulnerable individuals those whom supposedly benefit from the particular services
