PAC peace talks conclusion awaits Malawi president: Mutharika returns home Sat from Russia

President Peter Mutharika jets into the country Saturday from Russia just to find a request in his office in trays for an audience from Public Affairs Committee (PAC) to conclude the long running peace talks.

President Mutharika returns home Saturday from Russia

 

Mutharika was in Russia for a Russia-Africa summit where among other things, he has wooed international investors who would want to put their money in a peaceful country.

PAC executive director Robert Phiri said his office wrote State House long ago seeking the audience with the president to brief him on PAC’s interaction with the major political parties and the rights activists.

“We sent the communication and we hope the audience will be granted because the president is committed to finding a peaceful solution to these issues,” said Phiri.

But State House press secretary and presidential spokesperson Mgeme Kalilani said the communication from PAC seeking an audience on the peace talks has not reached Mutharika’s office.

PAC has already met Malawi Congress Party president Lazarus Chakwera, UTM leader Saulos Chilima, Malawi Electoral Commission chairperson Jane Ansah and Human Rights Defenders Coalition officials to find the last solution to the post-election violence.

Before talks, PAC should withdraw the irresponsible statements it has made discrediting the election results.

This situation is the perfect representation of the key problem in our beautiful country. I am speaking generally and not specifically this current situation of elections and protests. What I mean is .. this perfectly illustrates the competent and total utter lack of even the smallest inkling of responsibility in our civic and even business, economic, social and family life. I suppose it’s common in situations and environments with extreme poverty. Besides our so-called political ‘leaders’; everyone in the civil service and even our businesses simply refused to take responsibility. They are either never in the office when the public… Read more »

It is a waste of time to engage Mutharika for a peaceful solution to the current problem. The best is what HRDC is doing. Let APM feel the pain.
