Malawi adopted neoliberalism in 1981, trading its economic sovereignty for Western aid. However. the performance of the economy has been worse than it was prior to the
adoption of the neoliberal policies. Because neoliberalism makes a mockery of political independence – and because economic management is too pivotal to be delegated -the solution resides in achieving economic independence. But attaining this goal is challenged by leadership, status quo and the human resource.

Addressing these challenges falls squarely on all well-intentioned Malawians, since
“God does not change the condition of a people unless they change it themselves”

Therefore, instead of praying for rains year-in-year-out as if the “shadoof” is yet to be invented, Malawians must pray for the wisdom to perceive and understand that rainwater and the perennial waters in the country’s lakes and rivers have the same chemical formula, H20.

The public lecture was attended by staff, students and the general public, free of charge.
