Chinsinga receives death threats for being critical to Mutharika govt: Malawi political analyst

University of Malawi’s Chancellor College political scientist Blessings Chinsinga has said he has stopped commenting on political issues in the country after receiving several death threats from regime operatives.

Dr Chinsinga: Living dangerously

Chinsinga said there is a hit-squad that is plotting to assassinate him for being critical to the Peter Mutharika government.

According to Chinsinga, he started to live dangerously after the just ended high-level conference of civil rights and religious leaders and academics, who met in Blantyre under the aegis of the quasi-religion Public Affairs Committee (PAC).

“They are threatening to kill me,” said Chinsinga. “I think some people were not happy with my contributions to my last PAC meeting.”

During the PAC conference, Chinsinga suggested that the country is in deep political, economic and social problems because of “accidental presidents” that have ruled Malawi since the dawn of multiparty politics in 1994.

But the political professor said be believes there is beyond what he said to receive death threats.

During the PAC conference, Chinsinga argued that for the past 20 years Malawi has been governed by “try and error” leaders.

He said the country need political parties which have concrete fundamental political base project where all people will seat together on how could be done to transform this country instead of having leaders who come from a group of people “opportunistically”.

Government spokesperson said Chinsinga invites trouble for himself for always blaming the Mutharika administration.

“The problem with Chinsinga is that nothing good of the DPP government comes from his mouth,” said Mhango.

The government spokesman described Chinsinga’s claims of death threats as “pack of lies.”

He said: “Chinsinga just want to buy cheap public sympathy.”

But DPP has a history of abductions and killings.

What good has ever come from DPP? APM and his entourage are a typical of a clueless bunch of opportunists hand-picked by corrupt failed lawyers into govt. They think they’re in heaven but living in hell. Only time will tell.
