Govt slams PAC for being hostile

Peter Mutharika

The Malawi government has blasted the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) for being hostile and confrontational in dealing with President Peter Mutharika.

The remarks follows an audience PAC had with Mutharika and PAC’s statement after the meeting.

Speaking to the local press, PAC spokesperson Peter Mulomole said the delegates were disappointed with Mutharika’s attitude of brushing aside the points raised during the stakeholders meeting in Blantyre.

Reacting to PAC’s dismay, government has questioned the faith organisation’s motives in making provoking public statements as well as issuing insults, falsehoods, fallacies and half-truths in a hostile and confrontational attitude.

In a statement signed by government spokesperson Patricia Kaliati, the Mutharika administration has defended the Malawi leader arguing that he was not supposed to bow to all points raised by PAC during the meeting.

“PAC must accept that there are some proposals which simply do not make sense and it is their responsibility to explain them. Malawi has an educated President of a professorial magnitude and he will always interrogate whatever is submitted to him because he expects highly of us all,” said government in a statement.

Government has also called on PAC to respect the president arguing that the Malawi leader is educated enough to interrogate recommendations that are submitted to him.

“PAC should not rush into defensive mechanisms of attacking vocabulary like “executive arrogance” in order to bury their own inefficiencies and failure to technically handle the President’s enquiries,” reads part of the statement.

Meanwhile, government has appealed to PAC to desist from spreading insults in the media because such actions are not in the interest of public affairs and has expressed commitment to continue engaging in dialogue with the organisation.

  10. Pac pac pac!!! What is PAC? PAC is a group of greedy people who always destroys the ruling party no matter that government is doing ok, so be careful with pac.they were there in the time for Dr Banda, Muluzi, Bingu, Joyce and now here they are with Peter.u can’t get anything from PAC, they only work with opposition parties.

  11. The discussions were good but I still expected this to happen.PAC is not being disrespectiful to the president but only responding to what govt.has been doing.Soon after the discussion government has been using other forums talking lots of things about PAC.So sindikudabwa kuti PAC nayo yayamba kuyankhapo
