Jappie invites HRDC for meeting over allowances scandal

Minister of Health Jappie Mhango has the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) for a meeting over the coronavirus allowances scandal.

Minister of Health Jappie Mhango has invited HRDC members to a roundtable discussion on Monday next week to iron out thorny issues bordering on alleged pocketing of Covid-19 allowances and attempts by Mhango and Minister of Information Mark Botomani to cover up the issue.

A letter from Mhango to HRDC says the meeting will take place on Monday in Lilongwe.

The meeting is expected to iron out thorny issues bordering on alleged pocketing of Covid-19 allowances and attempts by Mhango and Minister of Information Mark Botomani to cover up for the same.

The invitation follows a letter HRDC wrote the two ministers on Thursday  to resign or face protests and court action.

The letter states that the discussion will help the activists understand the Covid-19 allowance issue better.

HRDC chairperson Gift Trapence has confirmed receipt of the letter and indicated that he will attend the meeting just to hear the ministers out.

Among others, the activists are demading that the ministers should refund the money that they have pocketed so far and that should they defy the resignation call, HRDC will proceed with other remedies including demonstrations and/or vigils at the Ministry of Information.

Don’t accept the invitation. You just can’t put it past these dpp chaps that they have a sinister motive. They are up to no good. They will seize the opportunity to silence anyone who is a pain in their ass. Trapence and his crew ranks up there on the ‘wanted list.’

The rot in Malawi is from top down. It’s a shame that small fry get burnt to death for stealing a chicken to feed family whilst big fish steal millions in broad daylight with no attempt to cover up and gets away with it expecting no questions from anyone. Only in Malawi 🇲🇼 Step down please.

To your question, ‘HRDC who are you?’ Ask yourself this, would you have been worse off or better off with lockdown? If your answer is ‘worse off’ then you know that HRDC are fighting for your rights, and these are the rights of all Malawians no matter political affiliation. I see that DPP supporters with their blind support, if they see anything that is seen as being to the disadvantage of the ruling elite, despite seeing merit in the HRDC efforts, tend to take things personally and unfairly attack the human right defenders. If your answer to my question was… Read more »

Not HRDC’s job to give sanitizers and masks. HRDC never received any Covid response funds from WHO,IMF, or WB. They do not have access to our tax funds. The government does and it has the responsibility to do that. Educate yourself, or stop ignoring facts. Maybe you are also one of the beneficiaries of the misappropriation? Wake up brother! Malawi is 100 years behind time in development! One should not be thanked for doing the job they are paid to do. More so if they are failing to do their job. Malawi remains the 4th poorest country in Africa and… Read more »
