Civil Society Organization (CSO) under the banner Forum for Democracy and Rights Defenders (FDRD) has written the Malawi Parliament reminding the house that Tonse Alliance must fulfill all promises made during June 23, 2020 presidential elections.

The reminder came after the grouping noted with concerns that President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse government wants to change some promises made during campaign period.

Addressing the news conference after presenting the petition to lawmakers at Parliament building FDRD’s Chairperson Abdul Rahman Ajassie cited only 4.5 million Malawians to benefit from farm inputs instead of universal farm inputs subsidy.

Ajassie said there is no need to change for promises made to Malawians because Tonse Alliance is in government.

“Malawians want universal farm inputs subsidy not for only selected individuals as that’s breaking promises made during campaign period,” demands Ajassie.

Chipiriro Mpinganjira, Blantyre City Centre Member of Parliament (MP) assured the civil rights leaders that their concerns will be submitted to the August Speaker before tabled to the whole house.

Among others, Tonse Alliance promised to subsides fertilizer, lower passport prices and many more.
