Veteran politician Green Lulilo Mwamondwe has accused government’s fierce critic John Kapito of being ignorant of what bad governance entails, saying the human rights activist and consumer advocate should visit some countries to get a sense of what he is talking about.
Mwamondwe, who is former deputy high commissioner to Zimbabwe, claimed Kapito wanted cheap publicity.
But Kapito, Chairperson of Consumers Association of Malawi, said in an interview with Nyasa Times that Mwamondwe cannot school him on anything let alone bad governance.
He maintained that it is “very unfortunate” that the Banda administration failed to understand the impact of the devaluation and floatation of the Kwacha.
Kapito said Malawians should expect more hard times ahead.
CAMA boss is organizing protest demonstrations against President Joyce Banda administration’s failure to address current economic challenges, saying it’s their constitutional right scheduled to take place on January 17.
“If Kamuzu Banda, Bakili Muluzi, professor Bingu wa Mutharika and Mrs. Joyce Banda all practice what Kapito call bad governance – then who does he want to rule this county,” wondered Mwamondwe.
“You do not compare something with nothing. If you do that then something is wrong with your faculties,” said Mwamondwe, who was DPP’s deputy national director of social services before his defection to PP.
Mwamondwe said this at Chitipa Boma on Monday after Malawi president Joyce Banda official inaugurated the 102 Km Karonga – Chitipa road.
