Minister of Information and Communications Technologies Nicholas Dausi is under spotlight for trivialising serious government business through his comedy approach during media interviews.
The Minister who is government spokesman, speaks on top of his voice using what is called bombastic words in a stand up comedy style.
Within two weeks, there have been condemnation through the social media as Malawians ask the former Malawi Congress Party (MCP) operative to be serious when dealing with serious government business as his powerful message can be drowned in comedy like communication.
The latest to write on Facebook on the matter is Henry Kachaje, an economist and columnist. He saysthat his friend texted him on Monday night to tune to state controlled Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) and watch a program called Chindunji hosted by Phillip Bizinezi and the guest was Dausi.
“I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed the comedy and I can safely say we might now have a potential replacement to the late Izeki.
“ Chindime and Manganya should pull up their socks. There is going to be stiff competition in TV comedy. Thumbs up MBCtv. This new comedy series is a brilliant idea,” wrote Kachake.
The Timeline status attracted hundreds of likes and comments.
Most comments agreed with Kachaje and asked Dausi, the former State chief spy, to take a serious tone that reflects the nature of his job.
Others, however said they were enjoying the comedy in Dausi.
Dausi however rubbished his critics as advancing “mere political tantrums.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
