Government lauds PAC meeting

Pac meeting

The Malawi government has hailed the two day Public Affairs Committee (PAC) all inclusive 5+1 conference which ended in the commercial city of Blantyre on Thursday.

The meeting came up with a number of recommendations regarding challenges which the country is facing that are required to be solved by the Peter Mutharika led administration.

Dausi says government will take heed of PAC recommendations.

Government spokesman who is also minister of information Nicholas Dausi has assured Malawians that government will do all it can so as to address these stated issues.

“It was a good meeting, it has ended well though people prior to the meeting said there would be chaos but that hasn’t happened.

“All what they have asked for the government to do such as to end corruption we will do all that,” said Dausi.

On his part, PAC spokesperson Peter Mulomole thanked government representatives for their presence at the conference.

“We are happy that those that were sent to represent the government have helped very well and we hope that issues that have been raised will be addressed,” he said.

Among other recommendations made during the meeting are that former Agriculture Minister George Chaponda should be charged on maizegate in 30 days and that government should take the Land Bills back to Parliament in 90 days.

PAC has also recommended that investigations on the suspicious death of the former Malawi Polytechnic student Robert Chasowa should be concluded.

Others are that Chancellor College which is now in sixth month since it was closed should be opened in 14 days and that government should stop politicising the role of chiefs.
