DPP hate speeches get PAC condemnation

Public Affairs Committee (PAC), a quasi-religious body formed in 1992 during the country’s political transition from one-party to multiparty democracy, has condemned the  governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) top brass for their foul mouthing  during a rally they held at Njamba Freedom Park in Blantyre on Sunday.

DPP leaders have been asked to tame their tongues to avoid inciting violence ahead of the first ever fresh elections.

During the rally, top DPP leaders used derogatory and foul language against opposition leaders particularly Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and UTM Party president Saulos Chilima as well as attacking Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) leaders.

DPP Secretary General, Grizedar Jeffrey, was filmed warning HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo: “We want to warn you. Enough is enough. A female which is more dangerous than a male wizard. When a female witch wants to deal with you, she will simply kill you.”

But PAC spokesperson Bishop Gilford Matonga said the language by top DPP leaders can create more fragmentation in the country, which he noted “is already divided.”

Bishop Matonga said political leaders should avert utterances that could be a recipe for violence.

He said democracy flourishes where there is open and free exchange of ideas and mutual respect.

“Let leaders speak peace so that we should build the country,” he said.

Commentators have also urged it is crucial that inciting rhetoric be deescalated.

Joseph Banda, Mfiti ndi iweyo umaombera mmanja mfiti inzako ikutizunzayi, kutukwana pa podium and every DPP member speaks following their leader’s example. What a shameful party! My advice to Mutharika, You should know that ‘Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man but that which cometh out of the mouth, this, defileth a man.” Matthew 15:11 For whatever one speaketh, comes from the heart. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh! Reverend Chakwera, you ought to know better. According to the adage, “Kudana n’kusiya mawu, mawu akapotoka! Ali ndimakutu amve!

PAC is becoming partisan. To prove my point, wait and see when they will condemn which party and on what. Just wait keenly and see. The PAC the Country used to know is totally different from this one.

That’s why DPP is a failure. It relies heavily on thugs such as the so-called cadets, Mchacha and Wa Jeffrey, among other undesirables. Does any normal person derive pleasure from wishing others dead? And APM quietly smirks whenever these thugs are ranting obscenities. Poor man!
