Members of the influential quasi-religious organisation met on Wednesday in Blantyre and made a resolution to issue out a communique on the prevailing economic woes that Malawians are going through.

PAC’s Executive Director, Robert Phiri confirmed of the meeting on Friday.

”We indeed met on 23th September and a resolution was passed for us to comment on the economic situation and political direction of the country,” Phiri disclosed.

”The resolution was made in view of the challenges the country is currently facing.”

The communique from the interfaith organization will exert more pressure on President Peter Mutharika’s administration currently being criticized for lacking clear practical strategies to address economic hardships affecting the country.

Pac expects to officially issue out the communique by Wednesday next week.

”We are currently working on it; doing research on some of the topics to be covered in the statement,” Phiri added.

The communique, according to Phiri, will also act as a follow up on some of the 19 key points Pac raised last year.

Malawians are facing economic challenges with inflation rate currently at 23.0 percent.

Pac is a civil society, interfaith organization made up of the main Protestant, Catholic and Muslim faith groups in Malawi

PAC the problem is you are easily bought. When the money given to you is finished, u start kutokota again. How far have you gone with discussion on federal system of government? First things first. We need federal system, you can delay change but you cannot stop it. Federal System is coming slowly. Beware!!!!

PAC,it is common knowledge that the economic challenges Malawi is facing at the moment, are mainly due to the withdrawal of donor funding by western countries.Why can’t PAC use its influence to persuade the donor community to resume budgetary support to Malawi? You are putting the cart before the ox by trying to take the government to task.

Malawians did not learn from Bingu’s second term economic woes which were marked by fuel shortages, sugar shortages and foreign currency shortages. The arrogant Bingu used to “ngati mukuti mafuta akusowa pitani mukagone pa mseu ngati simukagundidwa”. He was under immense pressure led to his death. Stress led to hypertension and dropped dead while active like Rhodwell Munyenyembe. Watch out Pitala. You have the same genes.

Malawians , can we all agree not to be paying taxes to this DPP government because of the way our taxes money is being misused by Peter and its DPP , our taxpayers money it’s for wining , dining and enjoying. I don’t think it is wise that our hospitals , schools , I can say that all the government intuitions are not fully funded as per the budget which was approved by parliament this year. All our taxpayers money is going into the wrong hands of DPP. This is a shameful situation which is laughable by our neighboring countries… Read more »
