Chakwera asked to dissolve cabinet

The Youth Decide Campaign has asked President Lazarus Chakwera to immediately revisit the cabinet appointments describing them as questionable and uninspiring.

The Campaign Team Leader Charles Kajoloweka told journalists on Friday that the composition of the Cabinet is based on political appeasement.

According to Kajoloweka, the Cabinet is not youth inclusive as it consists of no minister who is aged below 35 years.

He says the absence of young people in the Cabinet is a violation of the National Youth Policy and other international charters.

Kajoloweka also demanded the withdraw the appointment of the Malawi Revenue Authority Director General John Bizwick and his Deputy Henry Ngutwa describing it as unlawful.

He however applauded President Chakwera for appointing Dr. George Kainja as Police Inspector General saying he is a competent and a deserving individual.

Kajoloweka therefore called on the new inspector general to act on the Msundwe rape saga within 21 days and also act on the mysterious death of Buleya Lule in police custody.

He also asked the Tonse led administration should work by the National Youth Manifesto by focusing on youth inclusion in all appointments by the President.
