Dausi says PAC has pathological hatred with DPP: ‘Govt without integrity has no  right to  govern’

Minister of Information and Communications Technologies Nicholas Dausi has hit at the quasi religious grouping and governance watchdog Public Affairs Committee (PAC) for its assessment that Malawi was currently experiencing mediocrity as poverty levels have been deeply entrenched  among ordinary Malawians.

Dausi: PAC statement unusual

Dausi said the statement by PAC  at a news conference in  Blantyre shows that the governance  watchdog  has “hidden agenda”, saying its assessment is unusual.

The government spokesman said PAC leadership has “pathological hatred” against the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration led by President Peter Mutharika.

“They don’t see anything good in whatever DPP do and say,” said Dausi.

During the news conference, PAC observed that DPP administration has failed wretchedly to fight corruption in the past three years it has been in power and raised doubts if the ruling party can change before the elections due in 2019.

“After  a  careful  examination  on  incidents  of  corruption, we  note  that  the  DPP  administration  has  been  greatly  characterised  by  corrupt  practices,  financial  indiscipline  and  selective justice,” PAC chairperson the Very Reverend Felix Chingota  said.

“As  Malawians  seek  for  the  realisation  of  justice  and  law enforcement, we  note  that  the  DPP  administration continues  to  embark  on selective  justice  in  the  pursuit  of  cashgate  cases,” he added.

Rev Chingota said  all  Malawians  are  equal  before  the  law  and  must  be  treated  as  such.

PAC accused DPP of shielding corrupt fat cats in its rank and file.

“ The  snail’s  pace approach  in  bringing  to  book culprits  , and  failure  to swiftly deal  with  cashgate  matters  is a betrayal  of  justice  and  raises  questions  of  integrity  on  the  DPP  administration.

“We  are  compelled  to  state  that  the  DPP  administration  and its  leadership have dismally  failed  to  perform and that there is lack of vision  to  steer  this  country  into  prosperity,” PAC chairperson said.

PAC also accused DPP of running propaganda machinery on social media and mainstream media.

“We  hold  a  strong  view  that no matter  how much  money  one  invests  in  propaganda groups  to suppress  the will  of  the  people ,  justice and  truth  will  always  triumph,” it said

PAC said the growing corruption  levels  and  economic  malaise that are derailing the transformation of  people’s  lives show  “lack of  strong  leadership and  intention”  to  develop  this country.

“The  poor  people  are  becoming  poorer  as  the  few  are  getting  richer  to  the extent  that  poverty  remains  a  long-term companion  to  the majority  of  Malawians. In  the  current  scenario, the assertion that ‘ if  a  government  does  not  have  integrity  has  no  right  to  govern’  is worth pondering upon lest people are led into saying enough is enough,” PAC said.

This country is seriously bleeding and if we continue fairing like this, we will all(except those with fat pockets) be skinned alive by poverty. Dausi is a shameful DPP statue who unknowingly or knowingly tread where even angels fear to step on their feet. Bravo PAC

Mr. Dausi,is there anything good in whatever DPP does and says? Cash/ Maize/Tractor/Medicine/Embassy /Gates

Trouble with this government is that they view any criticism as an attack instead of taking this as an opportunity to correct things.

Is it any wonder that a recent survey concluded that people trust the president least. This is because of people like you who speak wrongly for him. Please tell him the truth. It hurts, but it is good feedback for him.

After the many negative things PAC has pointed out which are a copy and paste of the opposition camps let us wait for the reaction from the people themselves. We should not forget that this is the PAC which hated Bingu and his administration up to the extent of giving him ultimatum. Come 2014 after a fight from outside govt the DPP bounced back to power to the shame of this PAC. This time the same PAC is extremely divided because Chingota and Mulomole want to use it for their own political goals. I know that this press for PAC… Read more »
