What is our president doing?

What is our president doing?
We have an explosion of crime in the country. What is our president doing about it?
We have food security crisis coming up. What is our president doing about it?
We have an awful inflation of the kwacha. What is our president doing about it?
We have interest rates of over 40%. What is our president doing about it?
We have a failed FISP. What is our president doing about it?
We have thousands of people homeless because of the floods. What is our president doing about it?
We have thousands of xenophobia refugees in the country. What is our president doing about it?

Our president opens Umodzi Gardens, our president launches the civil service reform program (carried out not by the president but by the hyper-active vice-president), the president presents the start of the IFMIS reform programme. He opens something, he launches something. But what is he doing for us? We hired him. Remember how a democracy works: democracy means “people rule”. We are the boss, and we hired him for five years to administer the country to our liking. But is he performing? Nobody knows what he is doing. I will not go into unconfirmed rumours that he was in the US for 7 weeks, or that this was for his health. We don’t go into unconfirmed rumours here. But we want accountability. What does the president do in the time we pay him to work for us, and which way is he taking the country?
