Mafunde chides DPP govts

One of Malawi’s opposition political parties which contested in the 2014 tripartite elections, Mafunde, says problems which the country is facing are a result of mistakes previous and current governments made.

WE need change: Mnesa

Speaking to one of the local radios on Friday, the party’s president George Mnesa said governments, especially those led by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), made mistakes on several issues that have led to the current hard times the country is experiencing.

He gave an example of former British high commissioner to Malawi, Fergus Cochrane-Dyte, who was chased out of the country after he sent a diplomatic cable to Britain saying that the then president, Bingu Wa Mutharika was becoming “ever more autocratic and intolerant of criticism”

Mnesa said the expelling of the high commissioner has resulted in the loss of a good number of donors although Britain has not come out clearly on the matter.

According to Mnesa, had it been that DPP wasn’t in power, donors could have not stopped helping the country.

He added that the DPP led government has done what they wished for 20 months now without being questioned.

Despite this, Mnesa said things are not working in the country and they are discussing with other parties to take the government to task.

The Mafunde president also decried the giving of hand outs during campaign period saying they are resulting in the theft of government money.

“During campaign period, most of the voters are bought to vote for someone and the chances are to the government and this could be the genesis of cashgate, so laws need to come in for that,” said Mnesa.

He condemned government’s reaction on the issue of homosexuality. He said the law was made by Parliament and was approved by the executive but it is unfortunate now that the president has broken the law by freeing the gays.

He also said a referendum on the issue can only be a waste of money because it is a known fact that Malawians are against homosexuality.
