DPP accuse opposition of not prioritising dialogue: Analyst Thindwa rues politics of confrontation

Malawi’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has accused the opposition of failing to prioritise dialogue but dwelt on provocations.

Kasaila: MCP is provoking DPP

DPP publicist Francis Kasaila said the party resisted reacting to provocations by the opposition.

“Some people castigated President Peter Mutharika and the DPP without offering anything new. The opposition have always provoked the ruling party for nothing in the name of criticising,” said Kasaila.

He said however the party remained united because it follows its principles.

The opposition have criticised President Peter Mutharika and his government for the collapsing economy and collapsing public services especially in health and education among others.

Main opposition, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera said Mutharika and his government have failed Malawians.

People’s Party spokesperson Noah Chimpeni said Mutharika and his government have failed because they did not listen to advice from opposition political parties.

“The opposition gave pieces of advice to the government on how to improve the situation. Opposition MPs have been giving advice in parliament but the government does not listen,” he said.

Information minister Nicholas Dausi said the opposition demean, insult and castigate Mutharika and his government instead of giving advice in a sober way

Dausi said the opposition should learn to give advice in a dignified way because the president is a respected head of state.

Chancellor College political scientist Ernest Thindwa said government and opposition should be able to resolve their differences amicably.

“It’s like government cannot appreciate the criticism and the opposition not appreciating the challenges the government is going through, this is politics of confrontation Malawi has been having,” Thindwa.

once in many months I watched MBC broadcast of Chewa chiefs Conference with the media. I was ashamed of their loss understanding of the situation Malawi is in. It seemed to me and others that they were not citizens of this country. If indeed they represent Chewa people who are represented politically by MCP MPs and Counselors they should have shown understanding of how the Chewas are being sidelined in everything. Particular Cheifs Nthondo of Ntchisi and Dambe of Mchinji are a disgrace to Chewas. They addressed Lundu as a Chewa that is distorting history. He is a Mang’anja and… Read more »
