MAKE PAC, MHRC INDEPENDENT, STOP MISS USING MBC – PAC

0

The Public Affairs Committee (PAC), a quasi-religious body and governance watchdog, has formally adopted some of the recommendations delegates to 5+1 All-Inclusive Stakeholders Conference in Blantyre made to President Peter Mutharika’s administration, including independence of oversight institutions such as the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) and Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC).

The body has since pledged to engage government on the implementation of the recommendations.

During the conference held from 7th to 8th June, delegates recommended, among other things, that the Executive should stop using public broadcaster Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) as a political tool.

The the religious body has included the recommendation that MBC should put to end its propaganda and parading of traditional leaders.

It has also been recommended that University Act should be reviewed especially statues that govern public universities.

The issue of fired minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development George Chaponda, whose conduct with private company Transglobe was suspicious—according to two reports of commissions of inquiry, one by President Peter Mutharika and another by Parliament—also featured highly during the conference as delegates gave authorities 30 days to charge him.

PAC has adopted that resolution and recommended that Chaponda should be arrested “based on the due process of the law”. The body also wants allcashgate matters should be expeditiously pursued.

The recommendations also include call for serious investigations be instituted into the death of The Polytechnic student Robert Chasowa and ACB senior official David Njauju.
