This will sound like a broken record but it is true. The vice of handouts is what makes this society go backwards. People need to understand that only hard work pays. In addition if a well wisher like muluzi intends to engage in philanthropic activities it is better for them to invest money into sustainable projects where people will benefit in the long run. Muluzi's tactics only show how conceited a man he is and how he would like to have influence in this society through these sort of tired tactics. Unfortunately as he will come to realise we are better than this . Today PCL has lost millions in sales after closing the shop for several days, the bread/sugar/oil is probably finished in the households that benefited from the gesture and Muluzi himself is 21 million short. The question now is was it worth it?
With bad judgements of this sort, it is amazing how he has been allowed to run his party for this long (15years).
