Social commentators have faulted the u-turn made by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on its promise that it will subsidize iron sheets once in government.
The DPP in its campaign had indicated that it will subsidize iron sheets and cement so that Malawians can live in decent houses.
However, speaking after election, the Vice President who was also the running mate to the DPP candidate Saulos Chilima said that the party would only subsidize the things to the needy and not to the whole country.
The words of Chilima have attracted wrath from commentators who have labeled DPP as liars for cheating them on the deal so that they eventually get votes from them.
“DPP should not think we are fools. I hope they know well that there were other people before them,” said a concerned citizen on social media.
