The Public Affairs Committee -PAC- has asked former President Peter Mutharika to desist from making embarrassing statements in an attempt to push religious leaders and civil society to act on social economic challenges rocking the country.
PAC spokesperson Reverend Bishop Gifford Matonga told Zodiak today that PAC believes in principles of discussion and dialoguing on matters of national interest and not aggressive approach.
“We have been engaging the country’ leadership on various issues including corruption and the high cost of living. We are just a religious organization that believes in dialogue and not aggression,” said Bishop Matonga.
Bishop Matonga’ sentiments come after Professor Mutharika accused PAC and civil society at a rally yesterday of being silent when things are getting sour in the country.
Mutharika’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) held a joint rally with United Democratic Front (UDF) on Sunday in Blantyre where they accused the current regime of failing to fulfill their campaign promises.
But several political commentators have bashed the DPP gurus saying they must be the last people to criticize considering their uninspired reign which was characterized by nepotism and corruption.
