APM takes 2025 presidency campaign to cyclone survivors

PUBLISHED BY

Former President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika to Thyolo where he reminded his kinsmen about the Cement and Malata Subsidy Program, which his administration miserably failed to implement.

Ironically, the Malata and Cement Subsidy Programme was marred by favoritism, mis-procurement and high level corruption that drained public resources.

Mutharika said if he were still in power, he would introduce a programme targeting cyclone Freddy survivors to help them rebuild their lives as the Southern Region is still grappling with its effects.

He was speaking at Chisoka and Luchenza Primary schools where the survivors are currently camping. During the visit, the former Head of State also donated food items worth K21.8 million.

“The Malata and Cement Subsidy Program, which was championed under my administration, was meant to benefit rural communities who build their houses using mud bricks and common thatching grass instead of iron sheets. These houses can’t withstand natural disasters. Therefore, the MCP government must consider a resumption of the program targeting cyclone Freddy victims,” said Mutharika.

Mutharika was accompanied by some senior DPP officials, including Regional Governor for the South Charles Mchacha, National Organising Secretary Chimwemwe Chipungu, former Reserve Bank Governor, who is also a DPP Presidential aspirant Dr. Dalitso Kabambe, among others.
