“We need to usher in new leaders with new ideas and vision for the country to move forward. We must cut the tree and plant a new,” he said.
He said we need to change the whole system saying that the only people that can do this are in UP and his leadership.
Chisi the three pillars of education, employment and justice for all are aiming at addressing the challenges the country is going through because there is high employment and injustices.
“It is up to Malawians to make a choice as the country is going to the next polls in 2019. The country is not poor but failure to use human resource in a proper way,” he said.
He further said that the major problem is because we do not love each other that is the reason why there is greed, corruption and plundering of public resources.
