Candidates shun Oxfam pledge

Reports indicate that most aspiring Members of Parliament in Mzimba have shunned the signing of a pledge with Oxfam Malawi showing their commitment in ensuring accessible and profitable agricultural markets, if voted into power on May 20, 2014.

This comes following Oxfam Malawi‘s campaign targeting all presidential and parliamentary aspirants in the country to publicly commit to the people in their constituents on what they will do to improve farmers access to agricultural markets ahead of the polls.

Oxfam Malawi program officer Felix Minjale said Research has shown that about 94 percent of Malawians living in rural areas engage in agriculture activities for their livelihoods.
