Paramount Chief Kyungu of Karonga District has asked Malawians to avoid hateful criticism but appreciate development projects that are currently taking shape across the country instead.
Speaking on Monday when presidential advisor on Parliamentary Affairs and National Unity, Symon Vuwa Kaunda toured development projects in the district, Kyungu asked Malawians to assist government with solutions to challenges that have locked the country.
The chief observed that instead of offering solutions, some citizens offer castigations to the Head of State.
‘‘Personally as a chief, I find it not suitable for someone to start criticizing the current government for challenges that have emanated due to the effects of climate change and withdrawal of donor support.
‘‘To say the truth, government is doing a lot of things. Those who do not want to see cannot appreciate, and it is up to Malawians now to start helping the president to do what he wants this country to achieve,’’ said the paramount chief, adding the arguments would not take the country anywhere.
Kaunda said his visit in Karonga was to see the progress that has been made so far on development projects that are taking place in the district.
‘‘In Karonga, we promised to establish a technical college and construct irrigation schemes, and a stadium among other developments,” he said.
Some of the projects that Kaunda visited included Nyungwe Police Unit, road to Karonga Teachers’ College which was under rehabilitation and Ngara Technical College.
