The Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has asked the Malawi government to come up with readily alternatives when implementing national initiatives.
PAC Publicity Secretary, Fr Peter Mulomole, said government has a tendency of looking for options during post implementation of national initiatives.
He said this makes government to be caught unawares in times of uncertainties.
Fr Mulomole, cited the current controversy surrounding the implementation of the mass national registration process and the new secondary school curriculum.
“The on-going national registration process and delay in the distribution of teaching and learning materials in schools on the newly introduced secondary school curriculum has shown that government lacks poor planning,” he said.
“Government should learn to come up with readily solutions so that it can handle uncertainties.”
The national registration process is marred by among others disagreements between registration officers and the National Registration Bureau (NRB) over allowances.
Government has also delayed the distribution of books and provision of mobile laboratories and libraries to Community Day Secondary Schools (CDSS’s) to ensure the smooth implementation of the new curriculum.
