PAC takes on DPP over intimidating messages 

Quasi religious body, the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has warned the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) against intimidating its members following a high level meeting recently in Blantyre where some delegates asked President Peter Mutharika to resign.

In a strongly worded letter, PAC chairman Felix Chingota and publicity secretary Peter Mulomole warned the government that it has capacity to cause civil strife should the government or ruling party agents continue to intimidate its members.

PAC says it is worried with the current trend when in a democracy, those with dissenting views are viewed as rebels rather than partners in democracy.

“Such actions are counter productive and can cause civil strife,” says the letter to the DPP leadership and government.

The letter says the tendency is dictatorial and a threat to democracy.

“This is coming at a time when the government is failing to deliver,” says the letter in part.

PAC is therefore reminding the DPP and government that Malawi is in democracy and such threats and intimidations cannot be tolerated.

The grouping says some members are refusing to report the matter to police as they think the law enforcers are colluding with those involved in the intimidations and threats through the telephone calls and Whatsapp messages.

DPP has a history of abductions and killings.

Minister of Information Patricia Kaliati could not be reached for comment.

    People don’t just comment but read carefully the so called PAC are being threatened that even the police knows yet they do nothing.
    PAC is here to save the Malawi where there is dirtiness so as to make sure the nation moves freely and freedom is expressed without interfering

  6. Winston Msowoya says:

    PAC good job,do not leave any stone untouched,you have won uncompromising respect from the masses of our country please keep it on as democracy is part and parcel of our human rights.I remember when I was in the executive council of the PDP Youth League in Tanzania Masauko Chipembere used to tell me that he had high regards for young people like the late Prof.Attati Mphakati,Prof.Thandika Mkandawire and Prof.Peter Muthalika and he stressed that even if himself and his colleagues would perish in exile,he had all the hopes that these young men will play pivotal role in the liberation of our dear Malawi,however wherever Chip is,he must be utterly disarranged the way how Peter has turned our country upside down.After two decades of democratic change,Malawians will never ever accept to be subjugated by misguided morons.Let me tell Muthalika that guns or no guns,Lomwe’s or no Lomwe’s,intimidations or no intimidations nothing will deter Malawians to defend their hard won democracy.PAC,lead us the way and we will follow you behind to take our democracy back by all means possible.May all those sons and daughters who laid down their lives for our democracy,God bless them. AMEN!!!

  7. Chipapwiche says:

    PAC has the capacity to cause civil strife!!!! My foot… That’s the last thing these people should think about… You are taking on the government over intimidating messages and at the same time intimidating it! If you cause a civil strife,Dr Chingota and friends,who suffers? Is it not the commoner? Are you serious about this? If you are,its time you declared you want to fight the government at the expense of the poor masses…. You don’t care what happens to them during the civil strife!!!!

  8. MBAVA AMENEYO says:

    Don’t forget you PAC guys that you are the ones who never wanted to deliver the resolutions of the meeting which took place in Blantyre, instead you had to hide the whole truth of the meeting which you had , it seems you had some kickbacks.

  9. Ineso Mulomwe says:

    PAC u too are threatening others in a democracy

  10. Inemso Mulomwe says:

    In Malawi it looks like the minority want to rule. PAC is a small grouping and obviously full of the angry people we saw soon after 20 May Election results. These people continue to try to find ways of discrediting a legit government. its understandable that noise from 63 per cent would be loud enough to sound true. Am amazed that most of the people killed in Mzuzu were thieves who had wanted to steal but were turned martyrs after being killed but people don’t want to face the truth to tilt political balances,

  11. Edward says:

    The power is in the hands people in every Democratic goverment or country,,,,we wont accept any one ruin this fact,,

  12. Charombanthu says:

    We voted against this intimidation in 1992. Where were these people in DPP? Do not take us back please. We have already been there and we want to move forward with our hard won democracy. Give us a break….

  13. Jane says:

    I thank PAC for being our mouthpiece. Malawians have no freedom of speech, whatever bad happenings, Malawians are forced just to clap hands and congratulate the evil dowers…shame!!!

  14. ineyo says:

    Akaopsedze ambuyawo ana anjoka inu! Democracy and your stupid intimidation cannot go together. obviously your intimidation is short lived while ďmocracy is here to stay.

    A party full of thugs and opportunists. God Is never your cousin he will see us through these trying moments believe u me

  15. koma kumaneko says:

    They are indeed killers and mafias, look what happened in Mzuzu we are not even in campaign period but mpaka kukhapa anthu chonchija zoona? JB performed far much better on governance thats why even campaign went on well . Chiefs are letting us down big time too.

  16. International Observer says:

    Why should an organisation that is supposed to be a mediator/mitigator threaten that they have the capacity to incite civil strife, or is it bad reporting from the person who has authored the article? If what is reported is true then there is no reason why Malawi should have an organisation whose code of conduct and practicalities are poles apart.

  17. Patrick Phiri says:

    We all know Chingota is PP. Let him cry pyoooo!

  18. Nkangángá says:

    Nonsense!! MCP,MCP ndiye chani!!This party will never win and be prepared to lose again in 2019.PAC should continue to play their advisory role and not kuopsezanso ayiii!!!. Why talk about civil strife now???

  19. Omex70 says:

    Malawians, we need to be united in prayers to make sure that God has removed this burden called DPP from Malawians. This party is full of thugs but the good news is that we have the living God who is bigger and more powerful than these thugs combined.

  20. Samuel Lwara says:

    PAC, all what you are experiencing is exactly the typical of DPP since 2008/9. Your problem PAC members is that, you seek liniency from a devil which by doing so you as well empower him. If you indeed follow very well about DPP leadership since it came to power with blesssings from UDF, you will find that its only God through your prayers tThat can deal with the situation. I remember very well what brought a dark cloud over state house in 2012, it was the same dollars that came through a back door smired with blood of Jesus and pulled the dark cloud to our nation. Same members of DPP were also there and are there today but still remain blind. None of them know the exact date Bingu died and what caused his death. And thats what God does. Pray to God rightiously and answers will be noted and those in the dark(cabinet) will remain blind once more.

  21. Nkula says:

    DPP is the Devil’s Pathetic Plant full of thieves and murderers. Fortunatley they will soon be in opposition. God will soon answer our cries

  22. ……….has warned the government that it has capacity to cause civil strife………This is not good to come from men of the collar. Just because I know Chingota is a Joice Banda symphasiser, can I suggest that the issue should be brought face to face with APM for a way forward.

  23. Here We Go Again says:

    DPP is bunch of thugs like it or not

  24. BOKHO says:

    Very bad. People don’t want this Party in this country and GOD will answer Malawians soon. This party is a killer in democracy people are killed like Goats very sad this can not happy with MCP the only party in Malawi that we can see hope for Malawians. This is all about leadership. They think by intimidating people can be behind them never. That is the reason they hesitate to 50+1% votes for president which they can not make it even if the merge UDF.
