A law expert from Chancellor College, Garton Kamchedzera, has slammed President Joyce Banda for her endless tours citing that some of the problems that the nation is facing including the financial scam at the Capitol Hill are as a result of her not being an office.
“The continuous travels are creating a laxity in her office and it is high time that the President organized herself,” said Kamchedzera to Capital FM.
Commentators have always urged the President to be in her office for some time but President Banda has been defiant and has challenged that she cannot stop visiting people of the rural areas.
Since her arrival in the country from the US where she went to attend the UN General Assembly a week ago, President Banda has travelled to Mangochi, Mwanza, Blantyre, Balaka and Dedza districts in a space of five days.
Others speculate that the travels are Banda’s way of earning allowances in the event that she fails to retain the Presidency after the 2014 tripartite elections.
