Young Democrat Union of Africa (YDUA)  has on Tuesday, October 5 conferred President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera with a Vision Leadership Award during a ceremony held at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe.
According to YDUA president, Louisa Atta-Agyemang, Chakwera was decorated with the award for his impeccable leadership in ensuring food security and rule of law in the Republic of Malawi.
Atta-Agyemang said many young people in Africa were admiring Chakwera’s efforts to achieve food security for at least 2.5 million people who faced acute hunger before he assumed the presidency.
“Considering the state of perennial food insecurity that plagues a lot of countries on the continent over the years especially Malawi and the tremendous impact you have made over the short period of your office through the introduction of the Affordable Input Programme to ensure over 4.3 million smallholder farmers have access to very essential farming inputs,” Atta-Agyemang said.
She added: “We can only build a prosperous Africa for future generations through such bold and transformational steps, Your Excellency, you won the admiration of us at YDUA.
“It is that of such admiration that culminated in a decision at our first general meeting that we, as young people of Africa, confer on you an honorary award for visionary leadership, especially for your role in ensuring food security and rule of law in Malawi.”
“Sir, do accept this honor from us, we hope that as you continue to share your service with the people of Malawi many other young people will be inspired to greater heights by your example,” Atta-Agyemang concluded.
In his acceptance remarks, President Chakwera said he was humbled to receive the award on behalf of Malawians.
“This award is a timely reminder to all of us Malawians that if we put in place the right policies, food security can be achieved as a country,” he said.
Chakwera also thanked the young politicians from across the continent for the recognition of his Government’s efforts.
