PAC Insists on Bingu’s Resignation
The public Affairs Committee says it will continue to pursue its agenda for the resignation of President Bingu wa Mutharika if he doesn’t show tangible commitment to resolve the country’s social-political crisis.
“The call is ongoing as long as government does not implement the things that people want,” says PAC spokesperson Reverend Maurice Munthali.
Asked on assertions that the religious body betrayed Malawians by removing a 60 day ultimatum for President Mutharika’s resignation, Reverend Munthali said “we decided to leave it open ended, we felt that limiting ourselves o 60 days was going to defeat the whole agenda.”
The remark come despite Civil Society Organizations reaching an agreement with government on how to address issues raised in the July 20 petition last week.
Head of the Civil Society Dialogue team Voice Mhone told Zodiak online at the end of their talks with government that the Mutharika regime has shown commitment to address Malawi’s social economic challenges.
However, the President has already told Malawians that come hell or high water he will not step down before 2014, the year his presidential mandate expires.
