A member of the PAC team, cleric Gilford Matonga told MBC that Mutharika was “ so much willing that all sticking issues are addressed.”


The opposition led by UTM are seeking the nullification of the May 21 vote, won by Mutharika, saying it was marred with irregularities. A court hearing concludes later this month on the petition by UTM and MCP.

 

Matonga said the discussions centred on how all Malawians can play their role to ensure continued peace after violent demos spearheaded by the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) led to massive looting, destruction of both private and public properties.

 

“The problem cannot be solved by one person, but all of us working together,” Matonga said.


Mutharika often says the 2019 polls were “free, fair and credible” as declared by MEC and endorsed by the six international election observers, among them the European Union, African Union and the Commonwealth.

 

PAC, the quasi-religious grouping, has been one of the bodies involved in the peace process.
