Information Minister and government spokesperson Malison Ndau has hit back at Uladi Mussa for calling for the resignation of President Peter Mutharika claiming he has failed Malawians.
Mussa, who is former ruling Peoples Party (PP) acting president, made the call at a political rally held in Mchinji on Sunday.
“Mutharika has failed to govern Malawi. The honourable thing for this clueless leader is to resign,” Mussa said.
In reaction to Mussa’s remarks, Ndau said it is unfortunate that Mussa and his party can make such a call claiming they are part of those who brought the country into the mess it is going through due to plundering of government finances through the famous ‘cashgate’.
“It is very unfortunate that such a statement is coming from them because they are the one’s who brought the country into all this mess; they are the one’s who plundered government money through cash gate” said Ndau.
However, Ndau said it is high time Malawians come together with innovative ideas that will help to run the affairs of the country.
During the rally, Mussa said Mutharika and his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has absolutely done nothing since taking over the mantle three years ago.
He cited examples of excessive power blackout, water shortage and general economic challenges as some of the examples of the failed state.
Meanwhile, Mussa has called upon Mutharika and his government to probe and arrest all those who are involved in a K236 Billion scam which happened during the DPP led government under the leadership of the late Bingu wa Mutharika before PP came into government.
He threatened that as opposition, they will boycott the next sitting of parliament if nothing concrete is being done.
