United Democratic Front (UDF) President Atupele Muluzi has urged President Professor Author Peter Mutharika to work the talk in dealing with corruption in the country especially on Cash gate scandal.
The Young Muluzi of Ung’ono Ung’ono fame said this in Parliament yesterday when he was responding to the State of the Nation Address delivered by the President on Tuesday.
“It is that, any administration that is serious about delivering change for Malawi has to tackle cash gate, not just by ‘being seen’ to be dealing with a few manifestations of the problem, but by focusing on tackling the underlying root causes of this problem.
“We seem to have built in Malawi, what appears to be a political system that continues to allow the privileged few, to consume state resources for their own private use while disregarding the voices of ordinary Malawians”, said Muluzi.
Muluzi further hinted that Cash gate scandal came due to failure by leaders to distinguish between right and wrong.
Meanwhile deliberations have been suspended to Monday next week.
