Written by 

Leaders of opposition parties in Malawi have been faulted for failing to offer alternative and constructive views to Government through contact and dialogue.

Salim Bagus, a senior member of the opposition Peoples Party (PP) said this on Thursday in an interview with MBC. Bagus accused opposition leaders of selfishness and lack of patriotism for their country.

He advised opposition leaders to make use of the policy of contact and dialogue to resolve issues and offer alternative views for the good of the country. He described President Arthur Peter Mutharika as an open leader who is willing to talk and take on board constructive views.

"I would like to see opposition leaders presenting their views to the President for discussion for issues discussed are always better managed," Bagus said.

Bagus added that he would like to see the former President Joyce Banda return home as opposed to the stand she has taken of uttering dissenting views whilst out of the country.

On withdraw of donor funding, Bagus said he would urge donors to resume aid for the sake of the country and for the benefit of Malawians. He said he would find it difficult to assess President Mutharika's performance when his administration is denied donor aid for atrocities such as corruption scandal which the previous regime committed.
