i'm christine want to welcome to news africa i'm glad you're changed in the votes are being counted in malawi's general election that is too close to call the winning candidate must gets the most votes cost but is not required to receive more than 50 percent off those votes incumbent president faces stiff competition from he's the vice president. and from the leader of the main opposition party lazarus. so now about 70 percent of malawi's population of roughly $20000000.00 people live under $2.00 a day that's according to the international monetary fund we also versus what they expect from the government to come in the next government to improve you know education sectors and we also want. to also want them to empower those those youth that have talents and we see them people we need law in order. to improve
our lives. i think. you know i think i don't have any job to do what i've tried to do different kind of businesses but i was unable to say to those businesses because even going to the bank i got. into the. government to expect our new government to create jobs you know most of what we want to goodlife. is a current for more on malawi i'd like to bring in political analyst andrew basi he's joining me now from you know will welcome city to africa andrew we're talking about malawi that is one of the poorest countries in the world in 2019 going into this election be calling me a jobs as we've heard from people all of the main issues but why is that the case why is this country still one of the poorest in the world. they number 5 does
that make it to be one of the poorest countries i think the 1st one is that. that has been added i should bankruptcy in this country i think when we changed it from when we got our independence i think and then to 64 and we we were under one by the regime there was progress that was shown but when we embraced it the introduction of the mud by the democracy in london and therefore the leadership that we have since 99 to 4 has not actually given this country. on how we're going to develop on mobile from ready. to do development so the leadership bankruptcy in this country can be blamed for for the poor development about we are experiencing in this country ok so i was there is a cultural thing but i want to get to the point about the current incumbent president piece in which he he once a 2nd term how has he fared in his 1st term and does he deserve another. to be honest with you he doesn't deserve another time i'll be honest with you because his
government has been attended with a quarter i'm sure since he started his government in going to 14 when you read newspapers almost each and every day in india but us dittos the corporations that have been a lot of what i've shown must about use of resource they probably going to sources i mean when you look at even in devolvement of this country in terms of the infrastructure of this country we have not actually moved quite as we expected and also really so that that's out there have been missed the most a good is charted with this government ok this is so with that then you've got 2 main content is challenging. and do many of them perhaps often malawians something then what what's currently on offer. the differences between the 2 frontrunners is that the current one is the president of the country he was part of the government and he was part of the gender so in other words they took the wire of the main opposition they've been in the opposition for quite some time
although his new on the stage has been indicted over the position but when you look at the 2 they took out you see that maybe the main opposition got something because they have not been tested in terms of their ruling but when you look at the the 3 main contenders you. if you would choose to either the president or the incumbent president or the incumbent vice president what change can be brought to this country otherwise. the average form is the same. that is. the analyst joining us from a long way thank you for your insights. to the democratic republic of congo where the winds of political change now 4 months after he was inaugurated president felix you say katie has named a new prime minister at will. is a veteran political operator will have more on him place at the same time weis who has often been described as the 2nd most powerful man in the d r c has returned to
the country from 3 years of political exile take a look now at his journey. the after 3 long years in exile. or was just a few steps away from a triumphant welcome home on congolese soil he had clear words for the people of his homeland and thousands of waiting supporters. to call up bridge over to its for peace i've come back for peace and reconciliation in our country and above all to defend the interest of the congolese people and to defend our constitution because you can. see the 2nd largest city is on home turf the wealthy businessman of greek and congolese origin became the 1st democratically elected governor of the mineral rich province of could tank in 2007 he's credited with reforming the region's economic fortunes before it was broken up in 2015 with a long record in office he was an ally of former president joseph kabila until the
2 fell out. khatami left the d.s.e. in 2016 and was convicted of property fraud in absentia he denies the charges but was prevented from standing in the long delayed 28000 presidential elections that vote saw felix katie elected as president in the country's 1st peaceful political transition since independence in 1960. latest indited opposition politician to be cleared on the cheek eighty's administration the homecoming rejected government plans to change the constitution took place constructive politics for the future. we go beyond today there is a government which is in place and we have to give it a chance because we'll be a real opposition snow exeunt to be made it clear he won't be joining she katie's new government calling to victory richt even so he says the d.n.c. needs national cohesion to move forward.
let's bring in a windy bashing from deeds africa highway good to see you so that'll be received iraq styles welcome but how significant is he is coming back to the country politically hi christine that you did it in ways that to me goes back equal access in the tree here. yes ross a big joke and he had a great coming people was waiting for a special good at and that this is a part of it yes and he was really happy to go back and before you get to jimmy said that he's going back to great people and you want to be next to the nation and to change so many people waiting for the team. down and especially at the back of the quad walk but we don't exactly want to meet i've been made days with that and what he's got to me say is that he a daughter is issue of the new president of the
congress and maybe there will be in irons worked in ok but what we do know so far is that that's only a sort of aligned himself with martin fi you know he lost to just a katie but finally hasn't accepted the outcome of the election while khatami appears to be assuming a more sort of conciliatory tone is that partnership going to hold between 5 and had to be. this is a great question because today and yesterday money's got to me give me any interview or any one of them just say that it's not the constitution that caught any wanting to remind him acting failure that the count of didn't call him decided actually that spending's you think it is that you're president and this is really important in the new speech of what he's going to tell me because this is a signal for back to fail write soon clearly he's day elected president of the country but the speech of noise got to me yes and it changed everything and i think
it's a big message formatting for you do we actually like and out for a while in the same way the ship the castle let's wait i'll again next month that's i don't play with that to me was white yesterday very interesting but very quickly when they get this in here president you say katie just announced a new prime minister who is he and is he up to the task so does this new prime minister have been the people was waiting for him. after their election of it is you see katie we just have to know that do you miss your dad has the big experience . he used to work we. would talk at the table would talk he also worked there as they go in and we need to remind people that even though i was appointed he bases there could be that will give this existent to. the. we need to
feel bad what we can say from today that the fact that the guy have a great experience qualities and i merely said for the problem it's the spirit of 78 years or so this is also maybe a small problem ok wendy bashing from africa thank you for that. now it's true a story that i'm guessing has everyone talking in guyana just a few weeks before the upcoming africa cup of nations. has announced his retirement from the national squad it appears the issue is about the captaincy the $33.00 old sage in the statement that if the decision of the coach is to give the captain seat the tournament to another player while i'm named if this team all squads of the tournament i wish to recuse myself from the tournament now john is gone his full time top scorer with 51 goals for his country he was a key player at 3 world cups and everyone in ghana remembers that cruel penalty
