President, I would realise that the Sunday night address on the fight against Covid-19 was more detailed than the previous one, which, with due respect, was empty.
If I were Dr Laz, I would appreciate that when I speak on such critical issues, the nation expects to hear solutions and no ramblings spiced up with the American slang and political outbursts aimed at those who demand more and deserve better from my high office.
Oh yes, If I were the man from Malembo in Lilongwe, I would realise the injection of K17 billion towards the fight against Covid-19 complete with plans to hire new health care workers and construction of new treatment units is what people would love to hear—not my excuses for abandoning my campaign promises.
However, if I were baba O’ Chakwera, I would also realise that while my government has come up with such an impressive plan, executing it and accounting for every tambala will be another challenge; hence, the need to be vigilant in ensuring that things are done transparently and expeditiously.
I would also appreciate that while my address was sweet to the ear, I went out of my way by digressing to attack my critics over my promises because all they are doing is just to act as a watch-dog.
But I am not the orator of the itsanana fame.
