Quasi religious organisation, the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has raised its hands up in surrender, describing the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led administration as the most difficult government ever to deal with.
In an interview to be broadcast on television Sunday evening, spokesperson for the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) Peter Mulomole said the DPP is a ‘know it all’ government that refuses to take advice.
“They look down upon PAC, they say what kind of advice can PAC give us, they think they are more intelligent than PAC, that is not how things work in a democracy,” said Mulomole.
The President Peter Mutharika appointed committee on PAC failed to meet the biggest civil society organisation in Malawi last year, giving an excuse after another ranging from parliamentary business to busy schedule.
Mutharika appointed the committee, led by Justice minister Samuel Tembenu in a bid to fulfill some recommendations made at a highlevel all inclusive PAC indaba in 2016.
But Mulomole said his organisation has never dealt with an arrogant administration since the dawn of multiparty democracy as the Peter Mutharika administration.
“They are very difficult to deal with, you cannot trust them,” said Mulomole.
But government spokesperson Nicholas Dausi said PAC should not give up.
“These men of God should not give up early, we rely on their advice. We will ensure that we are together,” Dausi said.
Dausi said the government wants “an entente cordiale” with all stakeholders.
President Mutharika has openly expressed his dislike for PAC, describing them as a grouping with an agenda to oust him from power.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
