Mutharika to meet PAC over North Malawi independence, federalism

President Peter Mutharika has agreed to meet Public Affairs Committee (PAC) to discuss on calls for federalism or the Northern Region independence as a standalone country.

PAC executive director Robert Phiri, said the religious body which has volunteered to facilitate debate on federalism or secession of the Northern Region, booked an appointment with the President to discuss the two issues.

State House spokesman Fredrick Ndala:   It is a matter of allocating time

State House spokesman Fredrick Ndala: It is a matter of allocating time

State House press secretary Frederick Ndala said President Mutharika “is ready to meet [Pac].”

Main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP), led by its president Dr Lazarus Chakwera, is among groups that engaged PAC and asked  it for its facilitation.

MCP spokesperson Dr Jessie Kabwila argued that the federal government calls were as a result of nepotistic tendencies by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration.

The term federalism is also used to describe a system of government in which the sovereignty is constitutionally divided between a central governing authority and constituent political units (such as States or provinces).

In Africa, federalism system of government is practised in countries such as South Africa and Nigeria.

  1. Ndigida says:

    Remember this, tribalism starts with these small small remarks then it grows in veins of pple. Please pprospective leaders hold your heart, if APM fails we shall remove him by the ballot. After all each region has more than one president, even if the country is divided into three then the North will be divided into FIVE, the Central region into FOUR the South into SEVEN. THINK TWICE MALAWIANS.

  2. Ndigida says:

    This shows maturity of the Malawi bantu. Zambia is ruled by Zambian, Mozambique by Mozambican and Malawi by Malawian, kenya by Kenyan, but if pple feel the country is now big enough then ask the Sudanese.

    we are ready to be independent we want to show you the chewas that we can make it too. imagine we have clocked to 50 years and ku north there is nothing that we can show that the government has done instead of building schools in the north mwazenga ndatha in thyolo useless things and then u come and ask people frm the north to vote for u. this time around kulibe kulibe no vote no vote

  5. Bristol says:

    I come from the North and I do appreciate the concerns by people who are for federalism. The only problem that I have is to have two things on agenda – one is federalism and the second is session. It lacks seriousness on the concerned people because it makes sense to see the president and bring the issue of federalism rather than both. I ask all people who are leading people, especially from the north that they need to look at the issues soberly and not just hurrying as is the case now. APM has just started ruling this country, infact, less than 4 months. DPP has developmental agenda for the entire country and should be given time to rule.

  6. kholowa mkabudula says:

    I’M YAO, but all these started with the very first Dr Banda and passed the syndrome to all successors. l can’t blame the mbwenu’s for this. Our leaders are ready to steal not to develop this country. let the mbwenu’s have their own land and govern themselves to develop north. Mzuzu city is just like Mgabu town center in lower shire,all these years of independence sure? Even if they say they should have their own president oh! yes mpomvekadi as north is just like a rubbish place. Tonse a hinya hinya tizizatenga ma visa pa Jenda to enter north!

  9. Jessie Kabwila is saying Northerners are calling for Federalism because of nepotism that is practiced by the DPP government. I want to ask her where does she stand on the idea of Federalism instead of blaming the DPP. The truth is that UNITARY system has not worked for Malawi and there is a need for pure democratic Federalism with no domination by one region/tribe. We need Federalism that will rotate the presidency among our three provinces not four as advocated by Peter Hitler Mutharika. We need Federalism with strong provincial governments, and federalism that each province will be allocated points and in order for a party to win the presidency must win 2 provinces out of the three provinces (Southern Malawi, Central Malawi, and Nyika Province). These three points are the starting point to create a democratic federal Malawi. This three points I have mentioned above won’t make a political party to belong to any region because by the Federal law there will be required to elect the presidential candidate from another province if it is that province’s turn for the presidency. In order to be inclusive no one tribe shall dominate the presidential candidacy because of its majority in that province. No one tribe shall occupy the governorship of that province and allowed to participate in the presidential elections of Malawi. It shall be up to the Provincial government where it is its turn for the presidency to inform the political parties from which tribes of that region they can elect their presidential candidates. In order to bring harmony in each province—their governorship shall be rotated among the indigeneous tribes that live in that province. This system will spare Malawi from bloodbath and splitting just like what happened in Sudan. It is up to each Province to rectify some of the laws if they cause quarrel among its citizens. I’m ready to participate in drafting the new constitution of the Federal Republic of Malawi. The North must be allowed to vote on two issues, FEDERALISM or a Republic of Nyika. There is no need to oppress the people of Northern Malawi. It is time you let them decide what future they want about their own Province. If the other 2 provinces decided to be ruled by the Mutharika Kingdom then they should let the North be on its own as a Republic of Nyika.

      Yooo,
      You have raised a number of issues here. The main departure from the current (unitary) system to a federal one is that budget will be allocated to each Region/district based on a number of factors such as population and level of development. as stipulated in the Local Govertnment Act of 1998. Therefore, everything being eaqual we should expect Lilongwe to receive more than Mzimba.

      I for one I am not so much worried about where the President comes from as long as the local people are empowered to transform their own areas (which should be the main goal of federalism) unlike now when we all look to government to do things for us.

      I would also love to see a proportional representation being introduced when electing Regional Governments. According to the current system if (for example) during an election where Party A scores 51% and Party B scores 49%, Party A (with 51%) would get all the 100 seats (assuming a 100-seat parlianment) and Party B nothing. In a proportional representation, however, Party A would get 51 seats and Party B (with 49%) would get 49 seats. In this ways smaller parties would still get some representation. This is how it is done in South Africa.

      It is also important to mention that the call for a federal system is not because we want “Tumbukas” to role on their own. NO, NO. NO. It is the people of each Region/District that will be expected to rule. This means that a “Tumbuka” living in the South will be expected to cast his or her Regional vote there unless he opts otherwise.

      The road to federalism will be long one as so many laws would have to change starting with the Constitution. Furthermore, the Local Government Act 1998 would have to be repealled.

      I wonder how the referendum will be conducted. It cannot be people of the North alone voting but the whole country. Otherwise it would mean should people of the North vote in favour of a referendum it means by default the other Regions have also voted “Yes”.

      I will be a complicated process.

      1. THE VICTIM IN THIS UNITARY TRIBALISTIC GOVERNMENT ARE THE NORTHERNERS. The Northerners have their own motherland, Nyikaland, Since the independent of Malawi Nyika people have been subjected to oppressive laws and have always been third class citizens in Malawi. One good example is the quota system where kids from other regions are being selected first and the leftover spaces in schools have to be shared among thousands of Nyika children and a few will make it. Federalism gives each province power to build more schools, hospitals, roads, and etc according to its population demand, No child from other provinces will be discriminated if they allocate in any province where they want to school. Rotational presidency among the three regions is the first condition that must be fulfilled if the the Nyika people will be part of the federal system of Malawi. Each province must be allocated points and in order for a party to win the presidency it must win two provinces out of three. The rotational presidency among our three provinces will make parties not belonging to certain region but a party for all Malawians. Right now the DPP, PP, and UDF are Southern region parties. So, Mr—-you can’t fool me saying you don’t care where the president of the country comes from. To us—it matters because you can see with your own eyes since Peter Hitler Mutharika came into power how other regions are being victimized in favor of his Mulhako people. The Federalism that the North want must close all the loopholes of one region or tribe domination. The Unitary system doesn’t work—it create dictators. The Northerners have a right to form their own country and they cannot be forced into submissive. This oppressive and tribalistic government will not stop the movement of Nyika people to be free. We will fight to the last man. It is the North that has to take referendum whether to be part of the Federal Malawi or be on its own. Other regions cannot decide this future for us. Other regions must decide the fate of their own province and not the Nyika people’s province. If we vote Nyika to be a republic then they must let our people go. Why do they have to keep us slaves?

  21. It has been a long time that the Northerners have been groaning and suffering under the rule of the Southerners.they are being treated as foreigners but in their own country. For almost 40 yrs now, the students from the north travel long distance to get their university studies just because there are no educational infrastructures to accommodate them. In the South and Centre you have sugar plants but you say that in the north they don’t drink tea so we can’t construct a sugar company,why? There are alot of malpractices that you are doing to the northerners, so leave us alone

  22. Livulezi river says:

    Apa a State President alakwa povomera kukumana ndi a PAC. To be raw, as being said by The Nation newspaper’s Edward Chitsulo, this PAC group should not threat Peter. Let the northerners go their way. We don’t need their being one of Malawians. Ndi anthu okola, obowa, odzikonda, ova zawo zokha, and osaganizira za anthu ena!!! Let them form their own country so that we may rest in peace in our regions!! If I were the State President, I would definitely endorse their wishes without much ado!!

    This is good move and for your info Kenya is also practising Federalism system of government. It is not war. I disagree with Jessie Kabwila on this one. I think we should bring this issue of federalism without targeting anyone. It is a high time we did this. Our friends in Kenya they did it and people are happy. I also don’t agree with people who say ma lecturers akumpoto onse adzawathamangitsa. why? they are Malawians of the northern state free to work and stay anywhere they want. Federalism is good guyz you will believe me about this. Mantha achani!

    be mindful nonse mupita kwanu nobody will be interested to be governed by be people from other region. north will always be sufferer if this can be done with sober minds. its easy to say and bring in various theories that are not applicable to Malawi in the end to regret. think how many people are working in the south from north holding very influencial positions. should we assume south cannot produce similar people or does it not have people with similar credentials run affars of the region. do people say anything on open nepotism people from north practices. people from south will definitely gang up send you home and occupy those position. mukatani anthu nonse ophunzira mukakhale malo amodzi. mudzikangodelerana basi. no development at all. and be mindful school silemeletsa munthu koma kulimbikira basi. think what will next causde of action after this instead of promoting things that benefit few individuals. anthu akunorth mwatani kodi? what you are promoting will not benefit you, you end up being great loser in the end. tiyenini nazo tili momuno

Peter give that country to them and resign. if you will not hear my advise you become more cruelty and angrily hence tumoil and battle will take place in this country and will be no solution to resolve the matter. Because the war will spread the whole country the most important towns like Bt and Lilongwe will be used to fight with heavy weapons so that to destroy heavily….. sorry AKAHUNA…….chipani chanji chongokhalira kunama ULIRA UONA zaka zino nzoopsa kwaanthu osamuziwa mlengi munaba mavoti mumaona ngati mwathana nazo tsopano ndiye mwazikalasulira moto wa malasha. sheating does not pay you will see yourself some charamities

  44. SMART says:

    people only talk of Tumbukas who are in the south and Central to go back to the North after federalism,They don’t about the yawos,Lomwes and Chewas who are in the north.That’s childish and selfish thinking.In my view ,if the federalism is successful northerners in the south and central and southerners and centrallers in the north will be given an opportunity to decide their citizenship not what people think.

And Mr/Mrs smart nameali if federation is not good for a small country like Malawi then what is good for it? secession?, don’t be lazy to think mr

  52. chakwanuleka says:

    This is a welcome development. Enough of these tribalism and nepotism. If those who claim that Malawi is a small country are truthful, then how come when it comes to public appointments the rest of us are sidelined.

    PAC BE REMINDED THAT MALAWIANS WANT EITHER FEDERAL OR INDEPENDENT STATES . THIS IS DUE TO SIMPLE REASON CURRENT AND PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS HAVE PREFERRED TO DEVELOPMENT THEIR HOME DISTRICTS FIRST AT THE EXPENSE OF WHOLE MALAWI. NORTH IS THE WORSE AFFECTED BUT OTHER DISTRICTS IN CENTRE AND SOUTH HAVE SAME CHALLENGES , THESE DISTRICTS ARE LIKE NTCHEU, MWANZA, SALIMA NCHINJI, PHALOMBE ETC. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT KASUNGU, BAKILI’S HOME DISTRICT AND THYOLO THESE DISTRICT HAVE MORE DEVELOMENTS AT THE EXPENSE OTHER DESERVING AREAS IN MALAWI.

    THEREFORE MUST DO APPROPRIATE CIVIC EDUCATION ON ALTERNATIVE CHOICES BETWEEN SECESSION OR FEDERAL STATES

  56. chopeta says:

    If Mutharika has accepted to discuss Fedalism in Malawi and Secession of the Northern Region,it is the beginning of the end of Unitary Government in Malawi…

    It means greedy chiefs and Vuwa Kaunda have failed to convvince Malawians on the need that Malawi continue be Unitary State…

    Vote Rigging,lack of accountability and transparency by the MEC,Nepotism,lack of conducive language by the State President ie the term “Stupid”,careless and reckless Ministers such as Patricia Kaliati,Political opponets arrest threats,Lack of commitment by the State President to prosecute people and companies involved in Cash Gate amounting to k92b from 2005 to 2010 are some of the facts which have made Malawians to lose faith in Unitary Government in Malawi,the State President has too much powers which makes him to abuse power when executing his duties!

  60. Lets wait and see what PAC and mr President will be saying

  61. Tigawanepo dzikoli basi,Northern malawi ikhalepo

    1. Charles Harawa says:

      Kodi why don’t you all northerners pack up and go; leave the south and central regions and then make reasonable calls for secession. Leave the lucrative jobs that have been feeding your nepotistic appetites

  62. kc says:

    let us concede defeat & see if the north wil do without bt. what do u have at the north. leave our south and varsities and congest mzuzu ttc. timadziwa atumbuka ndiwozikonda koma alomwe sitidzaloranso zindere to rule. pac ingothanso, ndiyakumpoto. bwanji mukuzunza president, kumutenga kufatsa eti, akanakhala malemu zachambazo bwenzi atakuonetsani,

    Ngati mukufuna kukhalabe otidyera masuku pamutu, ife sitiimva. Taganizani tinali ndi H. KAMUZU BANDA for 31years tili ndi mseu umodzi watara. 10yrs for BAKILI tili ndi Auctionfloors, University and Mzuzu C. Hosp. Then late Bingu has dodged us on various developments eg Embangweni R, Mtwalo -Mpherembe R, including Mzuzu -Nb R. JB era has just complete needy houses reason the were too short. Then Peter has shown naked nepotism.so far has said he don’t want the whole NORTHERNERS. palibe kunyengererana apa IFENSO TMAPEREKA MISONKHO. we don’t want selfish leaders timeup for those like Peter .

  64. Quota says:

    Useless and nepotistic DPP

  65. Katswiri left wing'a says:

    You northeners are fools, you are busy criticizing the president now chonsecho mumkavotera nokha. Mwadziwa liti kuti DPP ndiodzikonda imangolemeletsana yokhayokha mobisa. Timkakuuzani, lets vote for new blood chakwela! Voting for DPP as if chilala chamavuto a 2009-2010 kunalibe bwanji? Now just know that this is the Beginning, you will suffer alot pomatha 4 years yatsalayi

  66. Central says:

    This was how multiparty issues started, Kamuzu and John T tried all they could to stop it, but to no avail!! DPP, and APM will very soon regret!!! Matchonawa tamawauzaniko sakuwadziwa a Malawi!! Chidani chanji chili ndi DPP, khalekhaleni mumwetsa anthu onse a ku North and Centre kuti mupititseko a Lhomwetu!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeshiiiiiiiiiiiiiii………………………….!! Sindinaonensoooooooooooooooo!!

  67. Kadakwiza says:

    The problem here is Mr. Muthalika he has divided the country for his personal
    gains. He hate people from the north so much, why? no one knows. So if he want Malawi to be united, he must just RESIGN. DPP is dening north Malawians, like; Education, Scholarships, jobs, and development. Any investor coming to Malawi is sent to Blantyre or Lilongwe not Mzuzu. I don’t trust PAC because most of their members are supporters of DPP and UDF. North Malawi must just be independent. The people of the north have made the decision. They want independent. Full stop.

  68. Nyasa says:

    My prayer is that they should discuss secession and not federalism. We should not cling too much to these Tumbukas. If they think are man enough to rule themselves, then do not deny them that right. APM please let these people go. Federalism will give them just a tenth of their freedom. On the other hand, secession will give them all the freedom they deserve. So, let’s talk about secession and not federalism to satisfy Mzomera’s wishes.

    1. Malawi says:

      Tell Peter that. In fact, tell him one way to speed up removal of Tumbukas is for Peter to stop sending messenger Vuwa to flush millions to chiefs and the clergy in the North. Let Peter order that now. No need to even meet PAC. He is the President, so you tell him to send Tumbukas packing, NOW

    2. Piper says:

      You southern idiots!!! Not only tumbukas are from the north !! You got so many universities up there and obviously you don’t use them !! Pathetic !!!

  69. mopia says:

    PAC tread carefully. This could be the end of PAC if it is true that its coming is as a result of the push from opposition leaders. Honestly, Federalism or sucession are not topics for Malawi as homosexuality is. Focus on poverty alleviation and socioeconomic development. What you are inciting is too dangerous. OUR Kamuzu told us that Malawi is not ready war

    1. mboma says:

      u must be an idiot, if this is not tackled war is coming and u will have no time for poverty reduction programme u are talking about, this issue is never small as u think , it can scare investors, it can bring istability to a country, BOKO HARAM started that way mind u!!!!!!

  70. wapa Nkhata Bay says:

    Palibe kudabwa, ziyenera kuchitika,bible linalosera. Uku ndi kutha kwa dziko la pansi

  71. Alfred Munduwabo says:

    Please , not jus northern Region alone , Central Region is in the same boat.

    All this sudden change has come in because of the nepotism of APM , he favours people of his tribe and region , all top government post are being given to his tribemen while other tribesmen are being demoted and removed.

  72. Peter Benga says:

    All malawian eyes will be the outcome of the discussion.I wish it goes on the right way

  73. Hehede says:

    RSA is not a federal state, but it has strong provincial government.

  74. cash gate says:

    Mukuvutikilanji ndi anthu akumpoto simumati olo zitavuta maka sazalamulira mmalawi so they also want to rule malawi

    1. mboma says:

      what is this idiot saying???????? answer them they want a country basi, u want them to rule maalwi when they want to govern their country??????????team seccesion!!!

  75. chefourpence says:

    atumbuka azipita kwao basi.

    1. kazeze says:

      Anguluso akhale komweko kumwela, pakati ai, obvuta osaphunzika AWA

    2. Mtumbuka says:

      People! People! Be carefull with your sarcastical comments. Federalism doesn’t mean ‘kwanu n’kwanu’ syndrome. Everyone has the ‘Right’ to stay. He/she can stay anywhere in the boundaries of mother ‘Malawi’. No need of ‘Passports’, only ID cards may be necesarry. And here even if the ‘President’ meets PAC, that doesn’t mean he has the answer. This will require collective ideas and finally a ‘Refrendum. So don’t bother the ‘President’, he will just endup wearing different names.

  76. MADAM says:

    LET THE DELIBERATIONS TAKE PLACE IN GOOD FAITH PLEASE GUIDED BY THE ALMIGHTY ; LOVING; LIVING AND CARING GOD PLEASE !!

  77. Smart namwali says:

    Federalism is not good for asmall Country like Malawi

  78. Ngwira says:

    A welcome development

  79. The Patriot says:

    This issue should be dealt with the seriousness that it deserves before lives are lost!

  80. Mccarthy says:

    Welcome federalism, its only Way 2deal with nepotism!

    1. PUTEN says:

      DD Phiri said Kusakhana mitundu ngati simunakuwone anganya muzakuwonandi . Zinja za Kamuzu zoti aliyense kwawo kwawo muzaziwona anganya.
