Some civil society organisation leaders have called for the prompt resignation of State spy Nicholas Dausi to pave way for an independent investigation into the clandestine activities of the civilian intelligence body NIB.

They are also calling for parliament to institute its own investigation on how NIB was snooping on leader of opposition in the House Lazarus Chakwera.

Dausi and NIB are accused of spying on Chakwera and some civil society organisation leaders and submitting a sexed up, erroneous report to President Peter Mutharika which suggests the politician and CSO leaders have committed a treasonous offence.

In an interview Saturday evening, some of the CSO leaders said they would be meeting soon to chart the way forward following the NIB report and high on the agenda will be the issue of Dausi and the clandestine activities of NIB.

“NIB is a threat to democracy. They have an allegiance to DPP (Democratic Progressive Party) not the state. They want to intimidate us and the opposition so that we dont do our role of checks and balances to government, this is uncalled for,” said one CSO leader who said he should not be named for fear of reprisals.

He said President Mutharika should appoint an independent commission of inquiry on the activities of NIB with a view to make drastic reforms to the intelligence body so that its role should be to gather crime intelligence for the police to act on than target politicians and CSOS.

“They should have been ontop of things, they should have detected and prevented the cashgate, the market fires,” said the leader.

Mutharika is yet to respond.

Dausi is Chiziko’s buddy he cannot be dismissed. They r using the same strategy which they used in the arrest of Bakili Muluzi in 2008. Their survival strategy is to implicate highly ranking politicians, government officials etc in order to hoodwink the President that they have foiled a regime change. Its a pity becoz these two r MCP sympathizers and they want to damage that trust bcoz they want their contracts renewed!


Dausi is too old to b chief of nib
