Jumah joins calls against paying for MRA stickers


Muvi wa Chilungamo Revolutionary Party (MRP) Leader Bantu Saunders Jumah, has joined calls to the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) not to charge Malawians for its stickers on goods coming into the country.

Jumah has advised the government to borrow a leaf from Kenya where citizens are protesting in the streets for a Finance bill that has not been signed into law observing that if care is not taken, what has happened in Kenya will soon come to Malawi.

He said this is the time to reflect on the country’s independence whether it has registered impact or not claiming that Malawi has enjoyed peace for 60 years besides being under-developed, the country still remains in the federation and above all, a failed state

Speaking through a Revolutionary voice in various media platforms in Malawi and Africans on the continent, Jumah said Malawi requires self-introspection that at 60 years, it has registered more of the bad than good.

Jumah said that since 1964, the country has not had a common ground to develop the country besides being ruled by five presidents and four political parties claiming that successful times have been shuttered into sorrowful stories.

He said President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera appealed for tolerance between the police and citizens on the Independence Day celebrations in Lilongwe wondering if what he spoke was real saying none of his words had ever happened.

The MRP President has reminded Malawians that President Chakwera spoke of ending allowance syndrome in government, police lining the streets where he is going, Ministers following him where he is going, and his appeals for unity, that none of these have happened.

He said the 6th July, Independence celebrations were supposed to be of collective responsibility claiming that opposition parties were not invited, there was no AFORD, DPP, or MRP, and the only parties that came were those that are in MCP Alliance.

“An Independence Day is supposed to be a day of national colors but there were MCP colors and you expect the opposition to attend a function of the MCP, “said Jumah.

He has advised religious leaders and organizations to side with the suffering Malawians by reminding President Chakwera that his government has done more bad to the citizens for corrections and not blaming the citizens for their patriotism to their country.

Jumah said a presidential convoy of over 50 cars, arresting people without proper reasons, corruption has become worse in the MCP-led government, nepotism where the president is only seen appointing people from one tribe only in Malawi-the Chewa saying these must be said to the president if he is patriotic to the country.
