Governance and Human Rights Advocate Undule Mwakasungula says the economic challenges facing Malawi require collective efforts.
Mwakasungula in a statement says every individual including civil society organisations should be patriotic and implement strategies that will lead to the overall recovery of the economy.
Mwakasungula believes that to achieve this, there is a need to promote unity and inspire hope in Malawians rather than focusing solely on the challenges the country is facing and succumbing to despair.
He was commenting on another statement the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) released on Sunday, highlighting the economic challenges the country is facing.
“It is also important to acknowledge that the government has taken some steps to address the situation, such as cancelling the fertilizer procurement deal with Romanian firm, East Bridge Estate, and initiating efforts to recover funds from the K750 million deal,” reads the statement in part.
Mwakasungula is a renowned human rights activist and he once served as chairperson for the Human Rights Consultative Committee (HRCC).
