Nyasa Times understands that human rights activist and comedian Michael ‘Manganya’ Usi will Thursday night address the nation viaZodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS).
Adverts flying on the private-owned broadcaster, which owns ZBS radio and television, Usi will speak to Malawians after the 8pm news.
It is not clear as to what Usi, who has of late been critical of State President Peter Mutharika’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)-led government, has to tell the nation.
It is however speculated that in his address Usi might be tackling the critical issues affecting the country, including the economic and nationwide hunger crisis.
Said a source on Wednesday: “The contents have not been made available, but his address is directed at the President, MPs, political leaders, chiefs and the ordinary Malawians”.
Nyasa Times contacted Usi to come clear on the matters of his address, but someone picked up his phone, saying he was locked in a meeting with the clergy.
When quizzed further about the meeting and which clergy, the individual refused to shed more light, but disclosed “He [Usi] has been meeting the clergy from different denominations”.
Earlier in February, Usi asked President to swallow his pride and allow some technocrats to help his government in bailing out the country from the economic mess and hunger situation.
He observed that the current administration has lost direction in dealing with critical issues, especially the hunger situation, adding that only a committee of non-partisan experts can bring back sanity.
