Ngolongoliwa rubbishes PAC conferences on ‘the  future of Malawi’: Analyst Hussein says its platform to voiceless

Paramount Chief Ngolongoliwa of Thyolo has said the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) all- inclusive stakeholders’ conferences on “the future of Malawi” have no relevance to the citizenry but  University of Malawi political analyst Mustapha Hussein feels PAC conferences remain fundamental platforms for the public.

TA Ngolongoliwa: PAC meetings not useful

In comments reported by the press, Ngolongoliwa said he sees no benefit in PAC conferences, arguing it only benefits educated people in town who come together to argue on issues.

Ngolongoliwa said as long as food was available in villages, people are happy.

“There is food all over, people are happy. What PAC discusses or comes up with, doesn’t help villagers out here,” he said in quotes reported by Weekend Nation on Saturday.

His comments comes after rhe quasi-religious body just concluded its highly-emotional Sixth All-Inclusive Stakeholders Conference Thursday in Blantyre with delegates making several recommendations to President Peter Mutharika’s administration.

The paper, however also quoted Mustapha Hussein,  a political science lecturer at Chancellor College, a constituent college of the University of Malawi (Unima), feels PAC conferences remain fundamental platforms for the public as they project a common man’s view of how government or democracy is performing.

“These PAC conferences, whether they are liked by some quarters or not are very relevant because they contribute to the discourse on issues relating to our democracy.

“They are an important feature in our democratisation process because they provide a platform for the majority voiceless to appreciate the other side other than that of government,” he said as quoted by the paper.

According to the report, Hussein cited a presentation made by law lecturer Garton Kamchedzera also of Chancellor College on public trust which touched on “sensitive” issues.

He noted: “That really raised eye-brows because it touched on some of the sensitivities and perceptions people have. So the success lies in the messaging and the passing it on to the government.”

But Hussein also stated that failure to implement or follow up on previous resolutions was a source of lessons regarding the strategies that PAC needs to be put in place.

  2. Wise one from the East says:

    Komanso this Chief is talking a lot of bullshit!!!! I am tempted to suggest that his true name might not be Ngolingoliwa but Nkongoliwa because is not only shit but rubbish bootlicker!!!!! I rest my case!!!!

  3. Tman says:

    Its unfortunate that the whole newly elevated Paramount chief can speak this nonsense. For your information chief, Malawi does not want chiefs at all. You are stupid, lazy, greedy and opportunists. I grew maize. I bought fertilizer at MK22,000 per bag. God gave us good rains. I did not receive your subsidy coupons. I have harvested 120 bags. I want to pay fees but alas the price is very low. Will you pay me fees amfumu????? Stop saying stupid things. Your days are numbered. We are not happy with your status quo.

  21. Patrick Phiri says:

    The current PAC has taken the Livingstonia Synod militant approach which has never benefited anybody.

  22. mvahiwa says:

    1. The author of this article his name is Green Muheya. What do you expect from a Lomwe
    2. Who really cares about what this chief says? Even fellow Lomwe chiefs dont like him…..

    PAC IS FOR MALAWI ngati a lomwe mukunjoya zisatikhuze. wathu ndi KAMLEPO ife

    1. caddon says:

      So Ngongoliwa is right. Reading the comments here.

  23. John Mzunguwalira says:

    Ngongoliwa didnot understand anything because the discussions were in English. Bola mukanathanthauzira mu chilowe akanatolapo kanthu. His wife can understand English though she cannot speak not him is a bulutu.

  24. DOBO says:

    What else can a man who has greatly benefitted from nepotism and corruption say apart from what he has said.This man has been elevated from Group village headman to paramount chief within a very short period leaving out deserving Siniour Lhomwe chiefs simply because the head of state is coming from his village. This is a daylight nepotism and corruption of hightest order in recent history.

  25. Ngolongoliwa says:

    Ngolongoliwa, you must be stupid together with your APM, a song by Matafale, it is clear, peace is not only food.

  27. Apao Kugola says:

    Paramount Chief wouma mutu chonchiyu alibe nduna zomulangiza asanalankhule za mbwerera kodi? In a democracy anation is judged by the wisdom of its leader. This therefore puts a question mark on the Lhomwe as a grouping: how could they entrust the leadership mantle to such an embarrassing personality?

  28. Chanco says:

    What the fuck!!!!guys I am lhomwe but iyi ndi mbuzi ngati president wache….chakudya chokha manga mukadwala?

  29. nico says:

    Stupid goat. You are a fool

  30. Zwitani says:

    Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, koma abale umbuli ndi matenda aakulu ndiiithu. The whole Paramount Chief Ngolongoliwa cannot see any sense in PAC’s meetings? This is very myopic and dangerous to the democracy of this country.

    The Chief does not know that he can open his mouth today because we have democracy in this country today. He does not even care that we have to guard against this democracy. as long as he has been dubiously promoted, that’s fine with him.

    Listen Chief and listen good. If you think mwafikapo, please do not hide behind the villagers. The very same villagers were swindled in a maize scam and you did nothing. Availability of food to a selected few for a season is not enough reason for you stand tall.

    Corruption is rooted in this country (worse among the leaders) and PAC’s resolutions may help curb the vice and yet the chief sees nothing. What kind of chief is this?

    Paramount Chief Ngolongoliwa, think again, and this time think on a sober slate.

  31. chemuyaya says:

    The fact that I have food there is no need for education, heath facilities, good roads, good governance. Mr Ngolongoliwa you have similar mindset to that of Peter Mutharika. By the way what criteria do they use to elevate you stupid cheif to this position?

  32. alungwana says:

    Ngongoliwa. Who is this guy? You mean you don’t see the importance of PAC, mmmm then you have joined the wrong politics.

  33. Rift Valley says:

    The general consensus is that PAC Conference was very successful as it brought to the attention of authorities issues that are of concern to the citizenry. I did not for once believe Ngolongoliwa and the likes of him would understand or let alone appreciate the objectives of the conference because, perhaps, his level of thinking is still that of a village headman.

    Look, he says the meeting was a waste of time because people have food. But does he know that drugs are not available in hospitals because of corruption, one of the burning issues discussed at the conference? And, is he aware that Chancellor College is still closed?

    Is our Paramount Chief, elevated in record time, aware that children are not going to school because teachers haven’t been paid their dues? Further is he and his colleagues happy to be paraded on the public broadcaster to deride others?

    There are so many issues of relevance, and of concern to Malawians, other than food, which were discussed and I for one, think the conference successful.

    Of course Ngolongoliwa has to say something, trivial it may be, to justify his existence and may be to please the powers that be.

  38. Sir Bentby says:

    What else can we expect to get from yahoo chief. This chief is nothing but Bullock, plank. Just elevated and raised to defend Devilish Progression Party.
