PAC demos called off

107

Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has cancelled nationwide demonstrations which were expected to take place on Wednesday, December 13.

The protests were aimed at showing anger over government’s reluctance to table the six electoral reforms bills which include a bill that will change the system of electing president from First Past the Post to 50+1 percent system.

PAC demos cancelled.

According to reports, at a meeting on Monday PAC agreed to cancel the demonstrations since government has shown commitment to table the bills.

Whistle-blower Gerald Kampanikiza said on Facebook that the religious body will today tell Malawians of its decision to call off the protests.

“The meeting started from 6:00PM to 9:00PM. They (PAC) have cancelled and will hold a press conference tomorrow (today) morning,” wrote Kampanikiza on Monday night.

He added that PAC will now start lobbying Members of Parliament to discuss and pass the bills when government tables them.

In another development, Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) which on Sunday issued a statement advising Muslims not to join the demonstrations was kicked out of the PAC meeting.

  3. Without even conducting the demos PAC has won the show. Govt has bowed down by tabling those bills. Remember how Tembenu, Grace, the Ngolongoliwas and Co. were talking against tabling the bills. Surely pac is hell fire. Awanyenyanyenya.

  6. Malawians dont really understand what democracy is. they think democracy means doing anything you they want bcos democracy gives power of rights that is umbuli. they think democracy abolishes the power of police and they can do anything like law breking without being questioned. they think democracy gives power to NGOs more than ruling president. shame. they think democracy gives anybody rights to insult president. nation of hooligans. understand ethics of democracy and learn to respect leaders coz someday you will be our president and pple shall be your asset. learn to undestand that PARTIES SHALL COME SND GO BUT MALAWI SHALL BE FOREVER FOR THE MALAWIANS.

  16. NKhani sinali bill.The Catholics wanted a part of the school curriculum retracted, and were using the bill as a ransom. The government bowed to their pressure. The Catholic church think Nyasaland is part of the Vatican.

  17. Kkkk then why kuikhasula mesa mmafuna 50+1? Then here is the very 50+1 u hav been asking 4 kkkkkkk khansala 50+1 mp 50+1 and president 50+1 kkkkk go ahead guys go go go coz mukakana the it will only pruv tht mcp is a party of hatred since it is crodiles party

  19. I have been participating previous demos but I’ve never seen any change till today.This is just wasting time and energy.The ones who benefit from these demos are NGO’s leaders not ordinary Malawian.They just use poor Malawians in order to make full their pockets.Achina Billy Mayaya ndi anzawo amapezera ndalama muzionetsero ngati zimenezi never trust these ppo they are twins with politicians.

    • Njakusuzga yaye akulu even the bill which is circulating in the social media is not what the law commission drafted and presented to the government it has been changed by adding mps and councillors. The demos should also have not sorely focus on the bills there are alot of issues affecting the masses in malawi they could have also been presented in the petitions during the demos

    • Kenneth sikumbiri we all know malawi politics they corrupt people who are saying the truth and are tackling issues concerning the government achina kapito simumawaona pano anazizira

    • The masses in malawi ndi khalidwe ladyera limene ali nalo anthu amene akanathandiza talking on behalf of them will not develop our country but further increase the rate of suffering malawians are facing

    • Stevie Mukapata Kaliati who told you that ukasekedwa ndekuti walakwisa. Ngati munapitako ku school amwene inu simunayankheko funso nkukhoza class nkumaseka

  20. Who still remember back then in school, when a teacher
    used to bring her child to the class? the child would be
    treated like Beyonce, even if she look like a frog
