The story in the above link is inspiring and president Joyce Banda’s government and Zodiak must be commended for beginning this. While some may say it is an election ploy, I hope this initiative continues after the May elections, irrespective of who is eventually elected, because we need to inspire teachers for them to do their job well.
I have a profound belief that continuity in nation building is what builds nations, not a me me attitude that selfishly sees a leader abandon works in which millions have already been invested – just because it wasn’t their idea….
Abandoning the major and critical projects of your predecessor only reveals your ignorance and selfishness more than anything else. So, in the event that Joyce Banda is not re-elected, it will be foolish for the new president to halt all of Joyce Banda’s major projects.
And you don’t have to agree with each project to continue supporting it, and pushing for its successful completion. So long as there are people who are genuinely being assisted by the project, and so long as the cost is not ridiculously expensive, and unsustainable, those are reasons enough to continue in the positive footsteps of your predecessor – even if he/ she had abandoned their predecessors projects.
