Malawi leader Peter Mutharika has snubbed a meeting with Public Affairs Committee (PAC) delegates which was aimed to offer solutions to socio-economic challenges that have rocked the country.
According to PAC, Mutharika was scheduled to meet the delegates on Wednesday, 30th March at Sanjika in Blantyre.
However, State House has postponed the meeting following another meeting that Mutharika will have on the same day at the presidential palace.
Confirming the postponement, PAC Executive director Robert Phiri said they will wait for state house on the possible day to meet Mutharika.
“We are very confident that we will be given a date to meet the president to share with him some of the resolutions we have following a meeting we had in Blantyre,” said Phiri.
Government spokesperson Jappie Mhango said Mutharika has promised to have an audience with the delegates to present the resolutions made at the PAC meeting.
During PAC meetings in Blantyre, stakeholders advised government to consider the resolutions made by delegates.
Among the resolutions, the stakeholders suggested for a body that is to look after the supply of staple grains in government silos as one way of preventing hunger.
