Michael Usi, renowned playwright and actor has told President Peter Mutharika to fire his cabinet and top government officials, saying they have failed Malawians.
Usi, popularly known as Manganya said this in an interview with Zodiak on Sunday.
“Malawi has no future, Malawians do not even know if they have a leader in control, we dont know if the president is in charge,” said the outspoken artist who said he has no political ambitions.
“If the President does not fire the cabinet, Malawi will continue to sink in untold misery and poverty,” said Usi, who is deputy director for Adventist Development for Relief Agency (ADRA).
He told Malawians to reject policies from government that would always put them in poverty.
Usi also took a swipe at the Mutharika administration for its failure to table the Access to Information bill in parliament.
“Access to information is like investigation. There will be arrests and embarrassment once this becomes into law. This government don’t want this law because they might be stealing, want to steal or were stealing so they don’t want this law,” Usi said.
Minister of Information, Jappie Mhango said he was at pains to comment on Usi remarks because he may have been giving a skit to entertain people.
Mhango said that cabinet referred back the Information bill for redrafting because it had a lot of mistakes inside it.
“ It was the intention of government that we have good and balanced law that is representative of all sectors of society,” he said.
He therefore assured the public that government was doing everything possible to ensure that the bill was ready for presentation in the National Assembly.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
