Malawi leader Peter Mutharika has appointed a technical team that will be responsible for sharing views on national matters with Public Affairs Committee (PAC) members on behalf of the President.
The technical team includes Minister of Justice and Constitutional AffairsSamuel Tembenu, Chief Economic Advisor and Executive Assistant to the PresidentCollins Magalasi, Special Advisor and Assistant to the President on NGOs and Civil SocietyMavuto Bamusi, Minister of HealthPeter Kumpalume, and Chief Advisor to the President on Domestic PolicyHetherwick Ntaba.
Confirming the development, government spokesperson Patricia Kaliati said PAC members are to share views from their stakeholders.
Last month, PAC members met Mutharika to present resolutions made by delegates at the PAC conference that took place earlier this year.
However, the last meeting that was held in Lilongwe was seen to be unfruitful to PAC members after Mutharika rejected points made by PAC stakeholders early this year.
PAC through its spokesperson Peter Mlomole was also engaged in a verbal war with government side after the PAC official said the religious body was disappointed with Mutharika’s attitude. Government hit back saying Mutharika had a right to scrutinise the recommendations made by PAC.
