Quasi religious body, the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has called for another high level All-Inclusive Conference indaba in September to chart the way forward following government decision to abruptly end the negotiations path.
PAC executive director Robert Phiri said the conference will accord an opportunity to stakeholders to interrogate the current economic and political situation in the country amid an outcry by various groups of deteriorating public service delivery and economic malaise.
However, one of the members in the presidential negotiations team, Mabvuto Bamusi said the government has opened the door once more but PAC has rebuffed it.
PAC spokesperson Father Peter Mulomole says another all inclusive indaba is set in September.
“The government has not been cooperative on our talks. We had an all inclusive meeting in May and we engaged the government so that the resolutions could be implemented but the government seems not to be interested in this,” he said.
Mulomole said PAC members would decide on how best to push for the implementation of the May resolutions.
“We are not returning to the negotiating table, its too late, our members will make a decision on the matter,” he said.
He accused the government of hide and seek on finding ways to get lasting solutions to the problems rocking the country.
But Bamusi changed tune after PAC said it had called for another indaba to brief its members on the outcome of the PAC/government intended negotiations.
“As government we are ready to meet PAC. We failed to meet because of the parliament meeting and we communicated this to PAC,” he said.
President Peter Mutharika appointed some cabinet ministers and his senior aides in the negotiation team with PAC.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
