    The National Planning Commission (NPC) has presented to His Excellency the President of the Republic of Malawi Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera with the certificate of Malawi 2063 Overall Champions for, among other things, his remarkable leadership in rallying Malawians around the national vision.

    Speaking at the Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe during the ceremony to present the certificate, NPC chairperson Professor Richard Mkandawire said Malawians, through the NPC, have also recognized the president’s passion towards the vision, his belief in the continuity of development projects beyond political regime and for making stern efforts at fighting corruption both from within and without his circle of authority as well as rallying the nation in fighting the vice.

    “For Example, under your leadership, a financial crimes division has now been set-up at the high court; and the Anti-Corruption Bureau has been capacitated with more financial and technical resources including having powers to prosecute cases without having to wait for the consent of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

    “All this is meant to speed-up the conclusion of financial crimes and corruption-related cases which are cancerous to our economy and the MW2063 aspirations,” said Mkandawire.

    Mkandawire asked the president to continue, at every opportunity, reminding Malawians on working together in achieving the Malawi we want.

    “We bank on your influential position to promote a new mindset of inclusive wealth creation and self-reliance away from hand-outs so we can fund our development needs primarily by ourselves at household, community and national levels,” said Mkandawire.

    Accepting the certificate, President Chakwera said he was happy and feels honored to be recognized by fellow Malawians.

    “You have encouraged and motivated me to do more not just in popularizing the Malawi 2063 but also in championing its implementation,” said the president.

    He commended NPC for recognizing not only politicians but also the youth, traditional and religious leaders as well private sector and NGO officials.

    “The vision needs everyone’s participation to be successful,” said Chakwera.
