A political commentator Augustine Magolowondo says so far presidential candidates have unveiled brilliant manifestos but has casted doubt on whether they will be implemented in full once voted in power.

Magolowondo’s fears on the reality of implementation of issues enshrined in the manifestos comes with a long history of why the country remain behind in development due to lack of implementation of development plans.

The country has always had brilliant development plans that if implemented Malawi would have been far ahead of its neighbouring countries, but has lagged due to lack of implementation.

Some neighbouring countries are even on record to have copied some development plans and implemented them successfully in their own way and developed while Malawi remain undeveloped.

Magolowondo feared that it will be business as usual if Malawians vote in power politicians that do not have a proper vision to develop the country.

He also expressed concern that a lot of manifestos have just highlighted critical points for development but have not demonstrated the facts on how they will implement the highlighted issues to bring desired results for the nation.

“It is important to underline that what presidential candidates are saying are all kind of measures that one would expect that it would significantly help to transform and move forward the country 50 years after independence.

“I hope that in the coming few days and weeks, we would expect that candidates and political parties will tell us more about the details on how they will implement their development plans”, said Magolowondo.

On May 20th Malawi will conduct the first ever tripartite elections to elect the President, Member of Parliament and ward councillor respectively.
