APM not fit for presidency – Parliament

0

Following continued executive arrogance towards the private media, the Information and communication committee of parliament has said President Mutharika is not fit to be a President of a democratic country like Malawi.

Parliament information and communication committee chairperson, Sam Kawale said that the President thinking is backward.

“We in are in 2016 for christ sake, how can a person we call our leader start a fight with media, this is absurd.

“The media is the fourth arm of the state and for that it must be respected. It is heart breaking to hear that government’s machinery is busy intimidating the media in public, this happens in countries that are not democratic,” he said.

He added that as a leader the President was supposed deal with media in a professional way.

“If he had problems with the media he could have used his press team or the ministry of information to solve the matter.

“He could have just called the media houses he is having problems with to a round table discussion and iron out their differences than intimidating the media publicly,” he said.

Kawale further warned government to stop using the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA) to police the media.

“This government has over stepped its boundaries, Why is it using Macra to punish its critics? Macra is there to regulate the media not otherwise,” he added.
