Namisa Blogger of the year 2013,Stimulating the much needed debate

Opposition political leaders have said that the state of nation address by Dr Joyce Banda is more political and a wish list aimed at winning people hearts for 2014 election.According to the leader of opposition John Tembo, the speech is more political and he will wait to see if all the projects that the President has outlined will be implemented.
DPP spokesperson Nicolas Dausi said the speech is a wish list and that it has left some issues that are supposed to be addressed with urgency. According to Dausi the President failed to address areas such as the opening of Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST) in Thyolo and Bingu’s dream of Nsanje inland port.
While welcoming the speech UDF leader Atupele Muluzi said the address failed to give direction of the economic recovery.
Among the things that the look new in the budget are the introduction of Mudzi trust which opposition leaders feel is political as the President want to woo votes in the coming elections.
Other projects include,the upgrading of roads in some parts of the country,the building of a modern village between the Bingu presidential hotel and capital hill and a fry over to sun bird capital hotel. There will also be the establishment of Tea Auction floor among other developments.
