and christine want to welcome to news africa i'm glad your change in 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. 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 voted 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 for myself i finish my school. no agenda i don't have any job to do what i try to do different kind of businesses but i was unable to say 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 good life. for more on malawi i'd like to bring in political analyst andrew basi he's joining me now from. africa andrew we're talking about malawi that is one of the poorest countries in the world in 2019 going into this election be consummated 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 you to be one of the poorest countries i think the 1st
one is that. there has been a did i should bankruptcy in this country i think when we changed 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. ducked into the mud but a democracy in london and therefore the leadership that we have since 99 to 4 has not actually given this country. 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're experiencing in this country ok so i love science actually but i want to get to the point about the current incumbent president piece in which he he wants 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 term i'll be honest with you because his
government has been attended with a quarter of show since he started his government in going to 14 when you read newspapers almost each and every day in about us dittos the corporations they have been a lot of what i've shown must have a use of resource they probably going to sources and when you look at even a development of this country in terms of the infrastructure of this country we have not actually moved quite as we expected and also so that that's out there has been missed the most to get 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 better than what what's currently on offer. the differences between the 2 frontrunners is that the current one is the vice president of the country he was part of the debate big government and he was part of the debate genda 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 in the lead 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 rooting but when you look at the 3 main contenders you. still do if you 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 ok that is. the analyst joining us from a long way thank you for your insight. 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 that will be sylvester. 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. 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. collaboration of idiots 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 it is you can. see the 2nd largest city 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. katoomba he left the d.s.c. in 2016 and was convicted of property fraud in absentia he denies the charges but was prevented from standing in the long delayed 2018 presidential elections that vote saw felix she katy elected as president in the country's 1st peaceful political transition since independence in 1960 khatami's a latest indited opposition politician to be cleared on the katie's administration the homecoming rejected government plans to change the constitution took place constructive politics for the future. well it's all 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 it isn't good to be made it clear he won't be joining she katie's new government calling to victory richt even so he says it needs national cohesion to move forward. let's bring in
wendy but she from africa high would be good to see as so that'll be received iraq style's welcome but how significant is he's coming back to the country politically hi christine that you didn't waste goes back in court after spending 3 year in exile yet. and he had a great coming people was waiting for a special act and that this is a part of it yes and he was really happy to go back and before you get to germany said that he's going back to greatest people and you want to be next to the book the nation it to change so many people waiting for the team. down and especially at the back of the quo but we don't exactly want to meet i've been made space we look at what he's got to be saying that he a doctor 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 k.d. but finally hasn't accepted the outcome of the election while the term be appears to be assuming a more sort of consigliere tree 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 many interview and one of them just say that is not the constitution that caught any wanting to remind him acting failure that the count of to call his decided actually that spending is that you're pretty good and this is really important in the new speech of what he's going to tell me because this is a signal for math to fail all right still clearly he's elected president of the country but this 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. let's wait overhead next month but i don't play with ketamine was white yesterday ok 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 in. florida after the election of it is you see again we just have to know that do you miss your dad has the big experience. he used to work we. would do it the day before we would talk he also works. over there go in and we need to remind people that even though i was appointed but the base was there can be that will give the suggestion. being that
we need to feel bad when we can say from today that the fact that the guy had a great experience qualities and i merely said for the problem is it's very close. 8 years old so this is also maybe a small problem ok wendy but she from africa thank you for that. now it's just rory that i'm guessing has everyone talking in gonna 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 year 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 is all time top scorer with 51 goals for his country he was a key player at 3 wold cups and everyone in gonna remembers that cruel penalty miss
