Consumers Association of Malawi (CAMA) has called on President Chakwera to reshuffle and trim his Cabinet to maintain only competent people to implement the country’s shared vision of improving the livelihoods of Malawians.
It said this in a statement signed by its Executive Director, John Kapito. It noted the lack of good leadership in most of the government Ministries which has contributed to the poor service delivery.
In the statement “the current Cabinet Ministers seem clueless and ignorant about their roles where some Ministers have simply turned their offices as vending places for their own businesses”.
“Most of the Ministers are shamelessly incompetent and not worthy serving this struggling Government, whose economy is upside down” and that the “consumers are continuously getting deteriorating poor service delivery in all sectors”.
“The President in his wisdom must and quickly review and assess the quality of his Cabinet,” says Kapito. “The more he maintains this poor calibre of Ministers the more he will fail to deliver on his vision and aspirations.”
He added that after noticing the poor delivery of public services by a number of Ministries, CAMA decided to engage those Ministries with the hope to share the observations and proposed recommendations that would improve the poor service delivery.
Kapito also revealed that the only response CAMA received from the government was being granted the request for an audience with President Chakwera in which they discussed the various observations that CAMA believes can improve the delivery of public services to consumers.
“Unfortunately, until today, no response has been received from the various Ministries that are key in the delivery of public services,” he said.
Kapito reminds President Chakwera that he has, on many occasions requested the public to constantly engage his Administration as a way of sharing challenges, experiences and that collectively the public must come up with strategies on how they can be resolved.
The statement further adds: “Unfortunately, that vision is slowly becoming a nightmare and impossible to be implemented by a weak and politically compromised ineffective group of Ministers — whose agenda is contrary to that of the State President and it will not be too long that the President will realize he has been let down by his own appointed team of failed Ministers.”
