Lawyer Theu raps ‘dishonest’ Namarika at the helm of Malawi Covid-19  response  

Private practice lawyer, Bright Theu, has questioned government’s decision to put Principal Secretary (PS) for the Ministry of Health and Population, Dr. Dan Namarika, in the lead in the fight against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

Lawyer Theu : Namarika cannot be trusted in the Covid-19 response
Namarika: Lawyer Theu says he cannot be trusted because of the way he handled the illness and death of former President Bingu wa Mutharika.

In his post on the social media, Theu challenges that government cannot successfully convince Malawians on COVID-19 pandemci with Namarika at the helm, arguing the PS is not someone people can trust because of the way he handled the illness and death of former President Bingu wa Mutharika.

Namarika was a personal physician of Bingu at the time of his sudden death to cardiac arrest in 2012.

“COVID-19 is surely real and spreading, perhaps mostly unnoticed and untraceably. Government’s failure to convince its own people has everything to do with using known dishonest people to supply information to the public. The Dr. Namarika is in official records to have lied about the death of President Bingu wa Mutharika and probably sanctioned change of name of the dead patien  president to Daniel Phiri,” writes the lawyer.

“Granted, honesty is not a value and virtue in DPP government. From the very top dishonesty is. But trust you me, your gang is the only one conviced with that position. The majority of the nation who can only operate with trust still values honesty and abhor dishonesty. You cannot deploy folks known to be that dishonest to convey truth. You soil the truth before it gets to the audience,” adds Theu.

And in his comment on social media, Ras Sam Mogha wonders how could trust Namarika with such a responsibility.

“Is this the same Namarika who told the nation that Bingu was alive? Here he comes again with a cooked up story of six more patients,” writes Mogha.

Namarika had not yet responded to a questionnaire from Nyasa Times seeking his comment on the matter at the time of going with story online.

Theu has a point! For starters there are some doctors in Malawi who have thrown professional ethics out of the window just to tow the DPP agenda all the time. Some even call themselves Cadets in professional forums! I wonder if they are planning for the future without DPP in government or they buy the blue lies that DPP will remain in power up to 2084?!

I know some lawyers are desperate to become famous but one day when sick u will remember how much doctors sacrifice. U remember how ntaba saved paul mphwiyo. Zinazi mutenga nazo tsoka. Namarika is a very good doctor. He didn’t have power over bingus death. Trump even overrided his own doctor to write his own fitness report. Its grossly unfair and irresponsible to start insulting doctors. No matter how big ur head is u will need them.

Theu studied law yes! But was the former head of state(may his soul continue resting in peace)Daniel Phiri? Was he not flown to RSA already dead? Dan Namarika lied to the nation period! He has no integrity to speak on critical national issues like COVD 19,he is a liar! the commission of inquiry said it all. DON’T HIDE A LIAR BEHIND SCIENCE!

Imwe wakwithu ba Theu, wasiya utambwali wako kunena zabodza. Who went on fake sabbatical leave to West Africa without proper approval of your employers and where you failed too bad?
