Dausi blasts Malawi spy agents over leaks

Head of Malawi’s National Intelligence Bureau (NIB), Nicholous Dausi, summoned state spy agents in Lilongwe last week for a meeting as the bureau intensifies its efforts to combat the leaking of confidential information to journalists, Nyasa Times has been established.

Dausi:   Head spy

Dausi: Head spy

Two senior operatives, who attended the meeting, confided to Nyasa Times that Dausi blasted them, saying some of them were leaking stories forcing the President to shift sands after the online reports.

Dausi was angry with the report of plans to appoint a second vice president, cabinet reshuffle and State House shake-up.

“Those who are leaking information to Nyasa Times will be caught because I am a friend to the  editor who will reveal to me the sources, so stop the transgression and treachery,” Dausi is reported to have told the spy agents.

However, Nyasa Times said it protects its sources to the maximum and would not reveal them – even at gun point .

Dausi said it is illegal to disclose classified information, saying any leakages of classified information undermine the national security of any state.

Meanwhile, according to press reports NIB which has been operating without any legal provision for almost 15 years, is expected to be established as a government institution with a mandate to prevent, contain and counter threats to national security

The proposed law, which was gazetted in March 2014, seeks to define powers, functions and duties, besides regulating the administration and control of the bureau.

NIB was established by the United Democratic Front (UDF) government in 2000 under the Office of the President and Cabinet to replace the Special Branch, which was an arm of the Malawi Police Service notorious during MCP’s rule for targeting the party’s political enemies.

According to what Weekend Nation reported, yhe bill gives the President powers to appoint and dismiss the bureau’s director general and his deputy. It further says a person eligible for the positions should have “high integrity and possess qualifications necessary for the performance of the duties of the office.”

Dausi , former Democratic Progressive Party’s spokesperson, was a former officer of the defunct Malawi Young Pioneers and served as bodyguard to the first president of Malawi, Dr. Kamuzu Banda.

    We need to move away from a stone aged based intelligence system to a smart intelligence. Imagine if Obama was coming to Malawi how much would they rely on our intelligence. We can’t have a non intellectual intelligence. We need a 21 St century state of the art intelligence whose job isn’t to ask public for political suspects and beat them up .But to analyze local and international threat and provide intelligent intelligence to the organisation’s which can benefit. China Russia UK usa use intelligence to prosper in trade. .We’ve got to be able to visualisé what our neuoghbouting countries are planning to do I.e changes in their laws and politics and maximise on their weakness to boost Malawi trade with those countries. I.e if Tanzania companies have free tax on imports from china. Let us provide a free tax on eu imports for Tanzania manufacturing essential products in malawi. Another example .If south African airways is making millions at the expense of government funded Malawi an airlines let us introduce a law or a technicality which will have an impact indirectly on number of passenger flying on their planes or a technicality which will make their operation to Malawi indirectly aff

    thats political indiculation

  6. Jabu says:

    Atupele is a politician while Chilima is a Marketer. Remember never outshine the boss. Reforms have always been here but they can only succeed if government as a whole embraces it not if it is seen as a one man show. Why pay journalists to say good about you when you have done nothing. Singapore developed because of a different political system that sacrificed personal freedom for economic development. Chilima doesn’t tolerate different views he wants all of us in government to agree with him which is impossible. There must be consensus on the type of reforms we want and how to get there. One president at a time.

    Dausi Sanjika gateman threats and intimidation tactics will not stop leakages.Alot more is going to be exposed to show that we are no longer in Kamuzu era. Malawians cannot be held ransom by this bulutu Dausi.Wayiputa Malawi usziwanso.

    A DAUSI muku shout anthu apa ground ndiye ndikilani muwone sikhalanso LEAKAGES ai koma kusowa kwa TOP-SECRET FILES just wait. It Has Bn Gathered By Those Being Shouted That U Also Leak Info To Ur Old Party Mcp And This Is True.Baba Do Not Play With Intelligence Iyitu Si Camera Ija Mumanyamula Nthawi Ya Kamuzu Ai. OFFICERS HAVE VOWED TO LEAK AND LEAK UNTIL U ARE OUT OF THAT SYSTEM.

  14. Vavlov says:

    Dausi is practicing old style intimidation tactics to serve his butt. So it is true DPP wants to have two vice presidents? This smells, am sure Bakili should be lobbying for his son to be the second VP; if this is the case, Malawi brace for mediocrity. Chilima is fine and more intellectually and politically versatile The young man has leadership qualities, and appears more objective than son of the man who brought corruption in Malawi.

  15. edda mwalweni says:

    mr Dausi, you are a failure, who doesn’t know that?

  16. am wondering some people like dausi are living their old life which doesnt feature in modern lifestyles.at atime when we say the hide and seek game is over,Dausi still thinks that the game is still in fashion.Bravo men of good will continue leaking the information untill they know the truth.This dausi should be removed from NIB and be thrown to BEAM trust.how is he there to a ttack the people he found there? he is aman confusing and paralysing the duties and functions of NIB.he recruits his mwanza boys and lhomwe without knowledge of his friends.he makes his own decisions and doesnt consider consulting his workmates.let alone he is always behind peter at every function

  17. Jihadi John says:

    What’s the recruitment process for these secret agents? Has Dausi, the man who’s major achievement is hunting down imaginary kongelesi dissidents and party card defaulters during the nation’s darkest era really comprehend the modern science of national security? No wonder he is using medieval tactics to unearth the whistle blowers. In any case what exactly worth national interest is this comedian paid for? He should just be made commander of youth cadets. That’s where he fits.

  23. Kenkkk says:

    So the leaks are true. So all the govt retractions and denials are lies because the leaks are true. It is really a head-less chicken govt, it now official!!! This is really a very weak govt, any time there is a leak it changes its mind or is it leaking deliberately to gauge public reactions and then change about what has been leaked depending on the reactions from the public.

    A true strong govt will defend the leaks to the end because that information is what it plans to implement as a govt.

    These leaks are not coming only from nis Officials but also from the state house. The state house has moles there as well, personally it is where most of these leaks originate because the leaked information has nothing to do with the nis officers. Reshuffling posts or appointing a second vp, these are state house discussions or issues not nis issues. So the state house should also warn its officials about these leaks. Not just Dausi warning nis officers who have actually kept him on his job if they are the ones who leaked the leaked info. Your officers love you Dausi. But it is the state house where these leaks originate!!!

  24. Youth Cadet says:

    A Dausi Mutapitiliza Ku Shout Ma Officers Ndiye Tsopano Sikhala Leakage Ayi Koma Kusowa Kwa Top-secret File Komanso Inunso Ndi Amene Mumachita Leak Kwambiri Maka Maka Kuchipani Chanu Chakale Chija Cha….DO NOT PROVOKE OFFICERS OTHERWISE TIYIKA PA SOCIAL MEDIA UR RECORDINGS.SHAME ON U THE PHOTGRAPHER.

  25. Kkkkkkkkkkkkk Wodzichepetsa makes me laugh by saying that even this story has been leaked. I agree also with other gentleman or lady that it’s always imperative to deploy professionals in such sensitive areas but this tendency of deploying cadres or comrades is a one step forward & three steps backwards. But all in all, personally I hate people who leak classified information or documents whatever. I don’t have a room for traitors in my heart, the Wikileaks of this world & their friends are people that will create more problems than solutions. No matter how much people can advocate for transparency but there will always be secret info. That’s why in the first place the word secret came in.

  28. Kwangwagwa says:

    Foolish fools indeed! We do not want hidden information, Mr. Dausi. Leaders should be open with their information. We do not want the Kamuzu era now. Leave media houses inform the public about the president’s/government’s secrets. How can you talk of classified information nowadays. This is quite ridiculous. You want to be pinning down innocent people? No!No!No! NIB is there to collect lies and use them to victimize the innocent general members of the public, especially political opponents and top government employees. Time for spies is gone. Time for secrets is gone. Let public information be made public starting from the beginning. Stop the rubbish you want to formally introduce.

    Keep Calm and Carry on leaking!!!!

  32. Truth says:

    If you give an assignment to two agents and if there is any leakage the two should face the chop. That is the problem of working with party zealots not proffessionals. for your information we know about the meetings and assignments from state house the moment the meeting is finished. Please recruit proffessionals.

  37. David Mailosi says:

    Why am I reading this story. Some crook had just leaked information about the meeting which was supposed to be a secret.

  38. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee dausi name watani kodi.


  40. Leaking Main Tap says:

    Dausi is the one leaking as evidenced by himself calling for a tounge-lashing meeting which contradicted Minister of Of information. The govt spokesman denied cha mutu wa gaku that Muthalika ever planned on 2nd veep etc. Dausi summons his boys to warn them about yapping on national secrets. Bwana President, Dausi is the naughty boy here, no question about it

  41. Think Tank says:

    in other words,he agrees there were plans for 2nd VP?

  42. Kamsale says:

    Point of correction: it’s no longer National Intelligence Beaurau (NIB) as previously called during UDF regime but National Intelligence Service (NIS)

  48. jj says:

    Interesting! You just shoutted at them and immediately after that they leak the shouting as well. The other dimension of the story is also eye catching, it was again a true leak, the information of the coming 2nd veep and cabinet shakeup and not reshuffle as it were. Come on leakers, I love the leaking and continue the good job so that all nonsense must stop.
    To my country with love.

  49. Chipoya LJ. says:

    The problem is that some of the NIB folks are not entirely loyal to the current regime. Some are Opposition sympathisers especially the PP and MCP.

    If you can recall, they were only loyal individuals to the late Kamuzu who were recruited in this department. Mind you, we are talking of the security and discipline issue here hence the need to hire only well disciplined and loyal individuals especially to the President and the party.

    My free advice to a Mr Dausi is that please ‘Look thrice, think twice and speak once’ before you hire individuals into this NIB otherwise all the secrets will be revealed and foiled thereby endangering not only the President but also the government and the party.

    All in all, GOD Bless Malawi!!!!!!!

  50. ANALYST says:

    These so called “Spy Agents” are a complete joke! I met your Chitipa “Spy” in 2013 there (Skeffa was performing as well that night) and your spy was all over “bragging” that he works for the intelligence! Everyone there “knew” that he works for the intelligence! Come to Lilongwe, I also met another “spy agent” at Mogasa late last year, and he too behaved the same way as the Chitipa guy! I was like – is this the way intelligence work is done in Malawi?? You cant work for the CIA, FBI or Mossad and everyone knows that you work for these agencies – never! Keeping your working for these bodies secret is one basic quality of a good intelligence officer….

  53. Kanyimbi says:

    The NIB job needs people who are not childish. How can you be spying the government instead of spying for the government? A chule achabechabe. Please be mature. If you can leak simple matter like this can we trust you with assassination works?

  54. Justice says:

    Appointing a second vice president, is that an issue of national security?

  55. Mr Dausi I agree with you those who leak the information are fools. How do they work for NIB and start leaking info to the media. Even the state regulated CIA cannot have such fools. Find them and fire them.

  56. Wamakala says:

    Don’t make a fool of yourself, leakages are common even in advanced and developed countries’ systems. In this era and age ome smart media houses n other institutions would even have n run their own ‘NIBs’. But can I request that you train ur folks in well established countries like Israel, UK, etc… but please not China.

  57. Patriot says:
