MALAWI GOVERNMENT MUST APOLOGISE
We, The Peoples Progressive Movement (PPM), wish to request the DPP led government to unconditionally withdraw and apologise to the British Government for its action against the Bristish High Commissioner Fergus Cochrane-Dyte.
The British government has warned of unspecified consequences if government goes ahead and deports the British High Commissioner. We are sure it is not speculation if we conclude that the unspecified consequences may amount to aid freeze, which will have serious repercussions for the Malawi economy and hence suffering of the common Malawian.
We are all aware of the role Britain has been playing in Malawi in all spheres of our economy. We are therefore deeply concerned that the actions and decisions by this government are bringing fear and uncertainty to all Malawians of good intent, because they are selfish and will work to the detriment of the common Malawians. We are aware of the sovereignty of our country as an independent state but we are sure the country cannot stand the resultant donor aid freeze.
We are therefore unreservedly asking the DPP led Government to apologise not only to the concerned British High Commissioner, but also to the British Government as a whole. If the government does not give a timely apology, we will hold the state president, his cabinet and his party responsible for any consequences.
