Dausi says MCP gurus face arrests  for conspiracy against Malawi govt

Several senior members of the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) face possible arrests following claims by Minister of Information Nicholus Dausi that government has reports that they have been conspiring against government to fix maize prices.

Dausi: There will me arrests of MCP gurus

Dausi said in an interview  with Nyasa Times that  the MCP members have been conspiring with maize vendors to cause an artificial maize shortage in the country so as to influence an unjustified price increase as a way of engineering civil unrest to unseat the DPP government.

According to Dausi, government has received “intelligence information” that some well-known members of the MCP  have been meeting in Lilongwe where they agreed to pressure government into reducing the price of maize to enable vendors buy all the grain it has in stock so that the vendors can later offer it to ordinary Malawians at K18,500.

Currently a bag of fifty Kilograms of maize is going at MK 12,500.

The Minister of Information, who doubles as government spokesperson, said most of the vendors listed in the report have links to MCP members of Parliament including the party president  and opposition leader Dr. Lazarus Chakwera.

‘‘I can  say without fear of illogicality, confirm that we have been briefed about that strategy, but as government we are ready to expose them and it shall not come to pass’’, said Dausi.

Dausi, himself a former spy under the MCP administration said according to their intelligence, the opposition’s plan is take advantage of their numbers in the National Assembly to ambush the government side, move a private members motion resolving that the price of maize be reduced from MK12,500.00 to MK 8,000.00.

‘‘In their tyrannical wisdom, they think the DPP government is so naïve in the government statecraft such that we can gaze at them executing their repugnant plan without as taking action.

“We know their modus operandi, and they will not triumph’’, added Dausi.

Asked to comment on comments that the intelligence report is bogus and a DPP government ploy to arrest MCP leaders on triumphed up charges, Dausi was elusive. ‘‘Who says its bogus? Wait and see..The report is being analysed by experts to see if there are criminal fundamentals in what these honorable members were planning. Because when you at it in totally, it looks like the MCP member’s gland plan was to bring down a lawfully constituted government. So, let’s cross the bridge when we get there’’, he retorted.

MCP officials could not immediately comment.

Dausu why did Mutharika appoint you minister? You are an empty tin who lives in the past. Maize is now no l9nger a strategic issue as maize in the gardens is now drying up.

Mr Dausi, why wasting time with an already dead party? In all the elections since 1994 MCP has been second positioned hence taking the role of Leader of Opposition. We had Gwanda, JZU and now Abusa wothawa nkhosa a Chakwera. These guys will still be squeezed to this position till the second coming of Jesus. If anything it will be a flop towards third place. There is no any strategy in MCP which can give them hope that they can make it to Sanjika the other day. 20 years in opposition is a very painful experience especially when there is… Read more »

Dausi, please listen. It would be naïve for MCP to plan a downfall of DPP Government through provocation of people’s anger using price of maize. Vendors are already selling below the ADMARC price. If anything, the opposition would advise the failing government and the imbeciles like you Dausi to reduce the price of maize from K12500 to even as low as K6000 just to avoid total loss. Instead of receiving and implementing such advice given in good faith, Dausi wants the nation to believe otherwise. Or may be this is a ploy to divert our attention away from the stealing… Read more »

Dausi should shut up his small, thin mouth if he cant shut up his little brain. This man is useless. Knowing a few bombastic English words which mean nothing should not be criteria for choice of a cabinet minister. Wisdom, intelligence and character should be the criteria. Unfortunately, Dausi has none of these..The evidence is there for all to see.

Kicks of a dying horse. Ine alankhula a Dausi sindiyankhulapo chifukwa ndikuona kuti sizikusiyana ndi zomwe ng’ombe imachita ikamaphupha ndi imfa. Apa nchachidziwikire kuti mu DiPhiPhi mwatentha, nduna zonse zaphokoso zoja zapanilira michira ndipo sizikudziwa kuti after Chaponda who is next. Nchifukwa chake bwana Dausi yamba kuponya mivi yachiponyeponye kuti mwina nkupezapo mpumulo. Koma samalani bwana chifukwa mutha kulasa wanu yemwe.
