Fr Mulomole: DPP is seeking public sympathy

PAC spokesman  Fr Peter Mulomole was recating to  claims by  DPP top brass  that they have not been invited to  a major conference where a cross-section of Malawians will be discussing the future of the country at a hotel in the commercial capital, Blantyre.

Addressing a news conference at Crown Hotel in Lilongwe, DPP’s Vice President for the Central Region  who is also presidential advisor Hetherwick Ntaba,  DPP  secretary general secretary general Greselder Jeffrey wa Jeffrey, administrative secretary Francis Mphepo, member Ken Msonda, Minister Jappie Mhango, and legal advisor Charles Mhango  condemned the  five-plus-one conference which civil rights , religious leaders and academics will meet from Wednesday to discuss Malawi situation.

Ntaba claimed PAC had invited all opposition parties, except the ruling DPP, in the 5+1 All-Inclusive Stakeholders Conference slated for 7 and 8 July, 2017.

“Our strong intelligence confirms the evil plans where over 300 people will break into spontaneous protests around Mount Soche Hotel, the venue of the conference, with anti-government placards and messages,” narrated Ntaba who further expressed fears that the intended riots could effect a replica of the infamous 20 July, 2011 protests under which over 20 innocent lives were lost.

DPP also accused PAC of conducting itself as an opposition political party.

But Fr Mulomole said PAC invited DPP and government officials to the conference.

“DPP was invited and government is also invited and most welcome to the conference,” said Mulomole.

He said DPP were only using seeking  public sympathy dismissing claims that the body is anti-government.

“PAC only speak for the benefit of the people of Malawi,” he said.

Mululomole also  said  Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (Osisa) is the donor approached to fund the forthcoming conference and that UNDP is still funding some of its activites.

The  conference apart from discussing a report on the feedback from the Fifth All-Inclusive Stakeholders’ Conference and chart the way forward, there will be major talking points on governance situation in the country.

During the forthcoming PAC conference, economist Henry Kachaje, who is one of President Mutharika’s most acerbic critics, and  a University of Malawi speaker will make presentations  on how corruption is affecting Malawi economy.

Apparently, Ntaba and Mphepo were in the forefront misleading former president late Bingu wa Mutharika.

If indeed these fools were not invited why did they attend the conference? Do you go to a meeting uninvited??? Public sympathy seekers I fear no one will sympathize with you fools.

God will fight for the oppressed while they are quiet. He already knows who are hired if there are and he will fight them and let us see if God can be defeated.

Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk koma dpp manthawa bwanji? Dausi confirmed of receiving invitation letter from PAC and announced that will send high powered delegation. So are you Ntaba and Mphempo claiming that you have not been invited? Did you really consult each other before organizing your press conference at Crown? Hope you are lacking protocol

Fighting PAC is fighting against God? Which scripture talks about this?Which religion do you belong you satan? Why is the Committee not speaking one language if God is with it? The two top men are known to belong to MCP and PP. They are using PAC to speak the agenda of their respective parties. All those who are talking in praise of PAC doing so because they know the two are their fellow party members. So DPP is not fighting PAC, but it is fighting the agents of MCP and PP. What can our country gain by supporting this PAC?… Read more »

I implore DPP to see sense by accepting the wishes of the majority and restrain from relying heavily on the so called cadets. The Nation’s memory of operation bwezani is still fresh.

A Ntaba mukuti PAC is “conducting itself like a political party….”? Ngati ndi choncho ndiye bolanitu chifukwa they have peoples’ welfare at heart. Nanga anthu akhalire zanuzi? Zoona president kumachoka kuno kumudzi mabvuto ali tho? Ayankha ndani? Kagwereni uko.

History tells it all that since time in memorial, Malawians are always liberated by the religious organizations!! Nothing is wrong here!! Mulungu akamva kulira kwa anthu samatuma a ndale koma nthumwi zake, and PAC has to take it as our “Moses” of Malawians!!

Ntaba is a pagan and a doctor and knows neither how God works nor history respectively!! PAC musavutike nawo amenewo, just go ahead with the brilliant plan!!

Dziwani ichi, atsamunda, Kamuzu etc ankachita chimodzimodzi, ndipo anzanu omvera Mulungu m’mbuyomu anaaaapitilira kuchita zomwe God, ‘Namalenga’ anawatuma, osakhala za munthu wa ndale ngati Ntaba!! Mxiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

DPP is a notorious party full of useless people like Ntaba, Nsonda, Mphepo. We can not sympathize with DPP. Every meaningful Malawian will side with PAC which speaks for the people of Malawi.
