Day in, day out the marathon of domestic politics gets louder, lousier, wilder and wider…what have you. The noisy heads are getting majestic in their vocal cords, with insults, recycled manifesto, counterfeit hopes as well as empty talk furnished with so much cosmetic truths.
Swarms of a great chunk of the society throng to hear such heads doing their political rock and roll via public rallies, functions as well as chameleon projects that are hatched each time
elections are near.
These atmospheres, coupled with a chain of other choruses heavily inflate every other politician with massive hope that they will form the next government just like that. Actually it is this flattery that stimulates politicians and wonna-bes to dig deeper and larger in their pockets, just to palm oil such pale following.
Fortunately, it is the recycled old generation bunch of politicians that is so much intoxicated with this kind of fashion in their political adventures.
Signs and symptoms of vintage recycled political heads include; giving handouts, castigating critics, intimidating opponents, blaming failures on others, fault finding (without offering solutions), mudslinging propaganda, preaching non-existent manifesto etc.
I trust youngsters venturing into politics will not inhale this sort of infection that ultimately rewards individuals/families other than Malawians across the board.
Fellow youth, most of the ‘leaders’ in contaminating domestic politics with dominance lack a vibrant moral character that has strong conviction beyond winning office. Malawi needs a leader that will do what is right without minding the next polls. This is a gap that our society has inherited from wherever hence ‘politicians’ take advantage of the same to eclipse deserving ‘leaders’ to carry the day.
Hate it or love it but Malawi needs a leader and not a politician. You see, a closer look at politicians reveals that beyond resolutions, policies, promises, spiced speeches, there is very little action hence continued staggering as well as trial and error governing styles.
Away with blind loyalty!
