  • Description

    THE LARGEST CROWD SINCE MALAWI'S INDEPENDENCE DAY ROARED "KAMUZU" - MIDDLE NAME OF PREMIER DR. HASTINGS BANDA - WHEN HE ASKED AT A RALLY LAST SUNDAY AT PALOMBE "DO YOU WANT THESE MINISTERS OR ME?"
    THE RALLY WAS HIS FIRST MEETING WITH THE PUBLIC SINCE THE EMERGENCY SESSION OF PARLIAMENT LAST WEEK AND THE DISMISSAL OF THREE MINISTERS FOLLOWED BY THE RESIGNATION OF THREE OTHERS.

    COMMENTING ON AFRICANISATION, DR. BANDA SAID HE WOULD NOT AFRICANISE THE BANK OF MALAWI AND PUT IN AFRICANS FOR THE SAKE OF AFRICANISATION. "IF I PACKED THE BOARD WITH IGNORANT, INEFFICIENT AFRICANS THEN NO ONE OUTSIDE WOULD HONOUR THE MALAWI MONEY," HE SAID.

    DR. BANDA SAID THE SMOULDERING EMBERS OF AMBITION AND AVARICE OF THE MINISTERS WHO WANTED POWER HAD BEEN "GUIDED BY A STEERING HAND" NI DAR ES SALAAM, AND ALLEGED THAT THE CHINESE AND SOME AFRICANS WHO HATED HIM WERE TAKING ADVANTAGE TO CREATE TROUBLE FOR HIM. THE PREMIER SAID HE WOULD RECOGNISE THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA IN HIS OWN TIME.

    (MR. CHIPEMBERE, WHO RESIGNED AS MALAWI EDUCATION MINISTER LAST WEEK, YESTERDAY CRITICISED DR. BANDA FOR HIS POLICIES TOWARDS PORTUGUESE MOZAMBIQUE AND CHARGED THAT THE PRESENT MALAWI GOVERNMENT WAS WORSE THAN THE ADMINISTRATION OF SIR ROY WELENSKY.)
