Lilongwe, June 20, 2014: Members of Parliament on Friday continued to comment on the state of the nation address describing the President’s speech a sign of hope for the country.

The MPs said if the current Government will implement its programmes and policies as stated in the President’s speech, Malawi is likely to economically move a step ahead.

Boniface Kadzamira, Member of Parliament for Ntchisi North said the President’s speech touched on the basic issues that Malawians have ever wanted them tackled.

Kadzamira cited road infrastructure, improved education system as some of the issues that Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) promised to critically look into.

“The President mentioned about rehabilitation and construction of more school blocks, provision of more teaching and learning materials and promotion of learning of science, technology and technical subjects in our schools.


“Not only that, the President said he will ensure that schools are provided with  computer laboratories in all public secondary schools and revise the terms and conditions of service for teachers to make the profession attractive and competitive. This is commendable,” said Kadzamira.


He further said, “Let me appeal to this government to continue with the road infrastructure which has the potential to improve the economy of the country.”


Member of Parliament for Nkhatabay North, Ephraim Chiume also hailed government for its intentions to continue with all development plans that were initiated by the late President Professor Bingu wa Mutharika.


Chiume said, the Bingu administration was instrumental in terms of development and he was of hope that the current government would adopt the same ideologies.


“When you read the state of the national address you are really convinced and you can clearly know the direction of this country,” Chiume explained.


Lucius Banda, Parliamentarian for Balaka North joined fellow MPs in congratulating Mutharika for a clear vision which he said brings hope to many Malawians.

Banda however asked government to make it a point that the rural poor are provided with clean and portable water.
