Thou shalt not insult Mutharika, says Dausi:  Calling Malawi President ‘passive’ is impudece

Minister of Information and Communications Technology Nicholas Dausi has appealed to Malawians to desist from hurling insults on President Peter Mutharika.

Dausi: President deserves respect

Dausi soused the call during Times TV interview program Exclusive when he accused maverick host Brian Banda of using words intended to undermine the authority of the head of state.

Banda had asked Dausi, who is also government spokesman, on perception that President Mutharika is “passive.”

Dausi asked Banda to withdraw the word ‘passive.’

Said Dausi: “It is wrong, erroneous, impudence, intesious to call a president passive, you understand young man.”

But Banda claimed Dausi was “trying to intimidate” him.

The government spokesman said “I want you to use the right terminology; you must respect your own Head of State. It’s not only my president, it’s our president.”

Dausi further said Malawians should give the President due respect than showering him insult.

“When you are addressing him (President Mutharika) try Malawians to address and give him the respects he deserves,” said Dausi.

Some Malawians have been showering insults even spoofing photos of Mutharika through social networking sites like Facebook and sharing on Whatsapp and other messenger outlets.

This was the most embarrassing interview I have ever watched on a public television in my whole life……… It was like watching an argument between two head cow boys fighting for some pasture land for their animals. First of all can I make a suggestion that these interviews should be held in our vernacular language. This was really embarrassing to our country to watch a cabinet minister and a TV presenter ranting at each other in a foreign language that they both do not have a full command of……what did our children in Malawi think after watching this madness?

Ordinary Malawian

Dausi is not fit to be Gvt spokesman… He raises his voice, diverts from the questions and use outdated style of spoken English. If he was calm and collected with simple and beautiful use of English words just like Ntaba used to do… olo atamatinamiza we can still give him a benefit of doubt. Achepetse phuma

Nicholas Dausi what else do you call this President other than Passive? Of all the presidents this country has had Peter ranks number one on passivity. What has he done for this country. Dausi having worked with President Banda and all the others thereafter would you not yourself agree that this man is the most passive. For your information also note that study has been made that all those people who “run away during Kamuzu’s reign and returned to positions like Bingu, Peter, Godall and Chaponda” have milked this country so much. In short they are thieves. Check the trend… Read more »
