A group of young people calling itself Malova Youth Association of Malawi (MYAM) has condemned the recent demands by Civil Society Organisations (SCOs) in their communiqué which is proposing for the introduction of an interim government.
In a letter by MYAM president Tega Mwaluwasa which Nyasa Times has seen, the group attacks the CSOs and describes them as the self-encrypted civil society virus.
It calls the demands as unconstitutional and clearly announces Black Mondays vigils .
Mwaluwasa said the CSO leaders “have a hidden agenda that had seen them driving posh cars in the name of civil society and activism for the past ten years.”
He says: “The association strongly and openly condemns the Civil Society communiqué on the current situation and quash their demands but also remind and awake their senses that we (the unemployed youths) must be in the forefront in evaluating and critically assessing the progress made on the cash-gate scandal in the sense that we are the majority and the most vulnerable within the society.”
The association further says it is preparing for mass national demonstrations termed Solidarity March and in addition periodic hunger strikes for the first time in Malawi to stop what they call the greedy civil society organizations from manipulating issues of national interest.
It argues that Malawians know that in the previous regimes no government or party official of a serving government could have been arrested.
In the same vein, MYAM pleads with the Grand Coalition through the letter to stop misleading Malawians on issues of national interest arguing civility is a calling where one has to be just in everything pertaining to the job.
Mwaluwasa said President Joyce Banda should not be forced out of power but let the elections decide next year.
