CSOs divided on calls for Peter Mutharika to resign

81

A group of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the country have said that claims another faction representing them that Malawi President Peter Mutharika should step down are baseless and cannot be a solution to the problems facing the country.

This comes as some CSOs have asked Mutharika to resign because he has failed to publish names of the bloated entourage he took to the US.

The CSO’s said this during a media briefing at Hotel Victoria in Blantyre where over 15 CSOs were present.

One of the human rights activists at the briefing Undule Mwakasungula said telling the president to step down will not bring a solution to the problems facing the country.

Mwakasungula: Says no reason for Mutharika to step down.

He said the aim of the press conference was to discuss and brainstorm how government and the CSOs can engage constructively in terms of creating a sustainable dialogue frame.

“Asking the president to resign will not bring solutions to the problems faced by the country and Mutharika like every human being can have challenges,” said Mwakasungula.

He further said that there is a need for CSOs to look at how they can address the problems facing the nation. He also called upon Malawians to have a common purpose and resolve issues affecting the nation.

Also present at the briefing was the Chairperson of Human Rights Conservative Commitee Robert Nkwezalamba who urged the media to avoid writing stories that can tarnish the country’s image.

  1. Bravo CSO!! The worst president we have had,Achoke !!Problems are worst with him.Everything has turned to be less.Dont u see Securityless, Foodless, Drugless,Watersupplyless,Electricityless, Roadless, Schoolblocksless, Learning materialsless, Accommodationless fr civil servants.Health Facilities in rulal ereasless,the list of Less is long.But cashgate and corruption in DPP is much more.Shame

  2. Even the whole of your group(cso) to be in power, you can not manage to satisfy everyone’s needs.we are not happy with you! And you’re not freedom fighters you’re jesuits.

  3. Ku Malawi ufulu umatichulukila kwambiri thus why aliyese amagoyakhula zakutu. Pa mozambik sofa provice anthu akukhala mwamatha after frelimo attacked and killed Renamo soldiers, kodi inu ana cso mumafuna izikhala mavuto chifukwa chani? U deserve to be bitten

  4. Resign what? Why do you want to bring chaos in Malawi? What the President brought from US will tell us if it is for us. Bwino nazo we dont want to morn again!!

  5. The president has five years term what ever come he is there for five years all this mess is because of the same CSOs. I don’t think we have CSOS in Malawi because always they behave like a party which is on the opposition side

  6. if aperson set abusness for while and on it no profit how she/he could do?the same to this readership we have no profit.let him go because he is not poor thuswhy he dont want to help the poor and if Malawian u are afraid war these politians will be rich until we die please u soldgers help to free our country from this pompas family.Imwe tumabungwe mkukana mwarwapo tumakopala,we know u very mach becoz u cant say no withought money

  7. Kadzidzi iwe maudani ndi ako we’re wise than you wamva that’s why we stopped everything that time kukaima panzere kukavota don’t confuse us kaya ndidyeraa you are not many that we can be troubled with u ok?

  12. I certainly agree that the president must resign.but not now.let him carry on till the end of this term.but it will do good for him not to stand again come 2019.secondly.the problems facing malawians are not personal.when the president will be resigning then the whole electral commission must resign for recieving bribes and allowing DPP to come in.The anticorruption bureau must also resign for failing to counter attack corruption.All people in cashgate scandal must be convicted.chakwera also must resign because what he knows is criticism other than construction.but if we only abdicate the president we wont solve for there are many who are more distructive than peter himself.

  13. Tangozilekani inu who can resign? Anzathu akuthawa nkhondo inu mungosokosa mukugona tulo osamva mfuti tiyeni tidikire. 2019 masiku amathera pachitseko, bola moyo

  14. Malawians voted for the APM, and the CSO should not forget that. They dont have that mandate and they should not hide behind the name of speaking for the voiceless. let the ones who voted for have claim. don’t advocate for us.

  15. Undule mwakasungula did 4 us during moya,now is no longer human activists.now dat u are a born sir stay awy from dis.Asiye azako atimenyere nkhondo bwampini watikwana.enjoy u retirement sir

  22. Na iyi CSO ,ndiya genuine sizinazi zovala ma jekete azipani nkumlengeza zaziiiiiii,good move and good guidance from true sons of Malawi

  23. Seems Undule has got sense in his brains. I would like to know his stand on homosexuality. If APM resigns, Chilima is definitely taking over as per the Constitution. So what are these CSOs advocating for as there will neither be a regime change as the DPP will still be incharge until 2019. Face the facts and dance to the drums that come what may DPP until 2019
