Manganya blasts ‘childish’ govt over failure to pass Information bill

Adventist church relief arm, the Adventist Relief Agency (ADRA) through its deputy director of ADRA Michael Usi has severely criticised the government for its failure to table the Access to Information bill, saying the government is creating a breeding ground for corruption.

Manganya:  Government is childish

Manganya: Government is childish

Usi says the government is insenstive to the plight of Malawians, most of whom live below poverty line.

“This is childish. I repeat the government is childish because people are suffering, what is in that bill that the government is hiding,” said Usi.

Asked by a radio reporter if President Peter Mutharika is childish as well, Usi did not mince words: “He and his government are childish.”

He added: “ They are not sensitive. There can be a back clash and they will have no one to blame, people are very angry out there.”

Civil society groups and the media are planning an unspecified action against the government for its failure to table the bill.

Media owners and managers who include Times Grouo managing director Leonard Chikadya, Nation Publication Limited’s Mbumnba Banda, Zodial’s Gospel Kazako and Capital Radio’s Alaudin Osman have petitioned the President regarding the bill.

Usi said it was unfortunate that the government is failing to provide answers to most problems facing the nation, including the Access to Information Bill.

Misa Malawi president Thom Khanje said Malawians woukd not accept a doctored bill after stakeholders fine tuned it and regarded it as the best of all bills.

Media Council of Malawi chairperson Chijere Chirwa said the bill has taken time to draft because of wise inputs from civil society groups and the media among other crucial stakeholders and would not allow the executive arm of government to dilute it to suit the ego of the executive.

    I think usi is right. It was the same govt which assured malawians of this bill”s implementation once DPP becomes the ruling party. Why now delaying it..?

  2. Tomtom says:

    Pitala childish, Chaponda stupid, Kaliati nonsense, I really agree with you Manganya, this government leadership is childish. Look at the sufferings that we are going through but it does not concern them. The government has gone to the dogs.

    A Michael Usi (Manganya) ndi Tumbuka??? Alomwe mundiyankhe. Dogs remain dogs. APM and DPP are real dogs. Late George Nga Ntafu called them “dogs” in parliament. This was a prophecy for telling the true colors of DPP. The drug for Agalu achiwewe ndi kuwombera ndi mfuti chifukwa mankhwala ochiza galu wa chiwewe kulibe. Galu (bingu) amene anayambisa kachipani aka anapita monga momwe galu wachiwewe amapitira kulichete.

  17. Gadabwali says:

    Point of correction, Michael Usi was saying that in his personal capacity as a bonafide citizen of this country. The views are not those of ADRA or Seventh Day Adventist Church.

  18. Peter says:

    Mr president, when people start talking openly like this, it is a sign that your leadership has been tested and has been found wanting. Pull up your socks or face the wrath of the people!

  19. Chisale says:

    Mr Usi be economical in the choice of your words, don’t speak speaky peaky. Learn to hold your leaders in high esteem while you put forward your critisism

  24. Man of God says:

    Yes, they are childish indeed. Why trying to keep their dealing under cover by putting people in the dark? Tell him (bwampini) when he comes back, he and his government are childish, in fact, let me spice it here; they are silly because whenever they think they have scored, points go to the other team.

  25. You manganya,people are very angry out there! Who told you that we’re very angry here of what?.at first iwas looking you as awise one, now you’re not as iwas thinking. All you manganya’s group, god has proven to us that, you’re useless creatures citizen of malawi.
