Kapito calls APM liar over blackouts

1

Consumer rights activist, John Kapito has called upon the citizenry to take to task President Mutharika, cabinet ministers and Escom for lying to Malawians about the real causes of blackouts.

Speaking in an interview, John Kapito said that Mutharika and his government lied to Malaiwians that low water levels were causing the blackouts.

“What is happening now is contrary to what they told us, the President, ministers and Escom have on many occassions told us that once the rains start blackouts will cease, but this is not happening despite the onset of the rainfall,” he said.

Kapito added that it is clear that the President, his ministers and Escom were lying.

“At that time may be they just wanted to ease the pressure they were getting from the public because the rains have failed to stop the blackouts,” he said.

He urged Malawians to react to the lies because the President and Escom are taking people for granted.

“They have to tell us the real causes of the blackouts because as things are water is not among the causes, these people are liars and they lied to us,” he added.

Recently, human rights activists described 2017’s festive season as the worst and painful Malawians have ever experienced.

Expressing his sadness, Gift Trapence said that Malawians were not cerebrating but suffering in the festive season.

“People have no money and as a result they cannot cerebrate with hunger.

“How can people be cerebrating without water and electricity, this festive season is painful,” he said.

He blamed the calamities Malawians were going through on government’s lack of solutions to make Malawi a better place once again.

“They just do not know how to govern a country because if they did things could have been better by now.

” For how long are we supposed to suffer just because those in power are not willing to solve the problems we are facing as a nation?” He asked..
