PAC has pathological hatred against Mutharika, DPP — Mpinganjira

Veteran firebrand politician Brown Mpinganjira has accused the Public Affairs Committee (PAC), a quasi-religious body formed in 1992 during the country’s political transition from one-party to multiparty democracy, of being  anti-President Peter Mutharika and his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration.

Mpinganjira: PAC campaigned against DPP and Mutharika but they failed because voters did not listen to them

Mpinganjira made the accusation in televised interview with Times TV when he quashed PAC for discrediting the May 21 Tripartite Elections that ushered in President Peter Mutharika for a second five-year term of office, 192 legislators in the 193-seat Parliament and 460 ward councillors.

He was responding to host Brian Banda’s question that PAC stated that the election results “lack credibility”.

“PAC has never liked DPP. They deployed all tactics to remove DPP from power. Unfortunately the voters  are not only PAC members, the majority have choosen President Peter Mutharika,” said Mpinganjira.

PAC chairperson the Very Reverend Felix Chingota who accused Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) of messing up  the results management system.

But Mpinganjira said PAC’s sentiments are in sharp contrast to conclusions by MEC chairperson Jane  Ansah,  who is a judge of the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal,  who described the electoral process as “free and fair” and that the results were a “true reflection of the will of the people of Malawi”

The Malawi Electoral Support Network (Mesn) and several international observer missions also said he elections were free and fair.

Mpinganjira says he takes PAC’s concerns  with a pinch of asalt because the members have pathological hatred with Mutharika and DPP.

“PAC have tried all tactics including organising demonstrations to fight DPP government, They have been campaigning against DPP, telling the electorate not to vote for DPP but they voters did not succumb to their wishes.

“PAC has never liked us [in DPP], they have never lived Professor Peter Mutharika,” said Mpinganjira.

Mpinganjira is a former minister in President Bakili Muluzi’s UDF government and also served as minister in Joyce Banda regime. He has appeared on presidential ballot twice, first as presidential candidate  for his now defunct  NDA party in 2004 and then  as running mate of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential candidarte John Tembo in 2009.

He later joined People’s Party (PP) before ditching it to DPP where he is now executive member.

One of the pioneers of democracy, Mpinganjira did not contest in the May 21 elections but his two sons have made it to parliament as legislators – Chipiliro Mpinganjira in Ndirande and Patrick Matola in Chiradzulo.

Mpinganjira is chairperson of National Roads Authority.

And in Livingstonia, it is Levi Ujiwombole Nyondo and his fake friend Douglas Chipofya. They personally hate APM. But soon Nyondo the fake reverend will no longer be general secretary. That will be the time their blue-eyed boy Moses Mkandawire and his harlot wife Jenifa will dance to the music.

Vuto lilipo. Vuto ndi Congress. Mungoonela macomment. Ikakhala PAC inali kale. I think it has outlived its usefulness. Nthawi yochotsa Congress inali relevant. Not now. As Malawians do we really need PAC?.

Mpinganjira is right and has my support. Athu ena amadana ndi chilungamo. Kaya nd spokesperson kaya ai koma munthuyu wanena zoona. Call a spade a spade not a big spoon. Inu a PAC if you are not careful you will soon become irrelevant because you are poking you nose in politics too much. Peter anakulakwilani chani?

One grave mistake religions do make is getting involved in politics. Any religious leader is supposed to be neutral because it’s members come from different political affiliations.
