CSO’s Embarassed As VP Chilima Turns Down Their Offer To Receive Petition

Not receiving the petition: VP Chilima

State Vice President Dr Saulos Klaus Chilima has taken the same stand by President Prof Peter Mutharika  snubbing the civil society organisations (CSOs) planning the April 27 demonstrations over the K4 billion allocation to legislators and other issues to expect him to personally receive their petition.

In a letter to CSOs, Secretary to the Vice President  Clement Chinthu Banda  said their request has been  referred to Office of the President and Cabinet “to determine and designate a government official to receive the petition on behalf of the Malawi government.”

The letter further advises the CSOs: “You may, therefore, pursue the matter through the Chief Secretary to the Government.”
