Chingota: Enhancing debate on federalism in a timely manner is critical for Malawi

PAC Chairperson Reverend Dr Felix Chingota told stakeholders during a Regional Stakeholders Forum in Lilongwe on Monday June 15, 2015 that the organization has not received any bribe from anybody.

“PAC will not stoop so low to erode its credibility. We are not an organization that will indulge ourselves in a such unbecoming behaviour,” he said.

The allegations of this nature lack context as well as depth as far as the strategy on debate on federalism is concerned, he noted.

He said the organization has a Code of Conduct that can be enforced on any of its executive member who behaves in a manner that affects the credibility of PAC.

During the National Conference held in Blantyre in November last year, he said, one of the resolutions was to continue raising awareness and promote common understanding to the regions on federalism.

“This is what we are doing now, we are sticking to our words and promises in discharging our duties.”

The Chairperson also cleared misconceptions that the organization would come up with resolutions on whether Malawi should go federal or not.

“It is clear in our articulated objectives that the question on federalism can better be realized through a process approach and PAC cannot pronounce on whether the country should go federal or not but to provide an opportunity where the articulated objectives and come up with a roadmap,” said Chingota.

However, PAC Executive Director Robert Phiri said the organization is planning to have a national conference where resolutions and recommendations from the regional forums will  be presented and people will discuss and determine from there.

All people against fedelism are uneducated Malawians who do not know what it is. Their comments precisely show that they follow Kwacha schools of Kamuzu and Bakili primary schools.PAC is a bought bunch of loosers who are bias and lead their noses towards money.
