Malawi’s Presidential advisor on non-governmental organizations, Mavuto Bamusi, has advised civil society organizations (CSOs) to always bring evidence and to provide constructive advice whenever they are criticizing government.
This follows a statement released by Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) in conjunction with Centre for Development of People (CEDEP) who blamed government for creating the problems facing the country.
The CSOs said that the challenges facing the country are man-made and that the power outages and economic hardships have been brought by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government.
But Bamusi said that the problems facing the country at the moment had always been there in the previous governments.
“I am urging CSOs not to politicize issues of national importance and provide evidence before criticizing the president as well as providing constructive advice to government,” said Bamusi.
He further said that the president has opened doors to CSOs to help government in developing the country and blaming DPP won’t help the country.
He added that there are some CSOs who have the tendency of politicizing and personalizing issues of advocacy saying that such acts affect the development of this country.
