NGOMA— We have decided to act

Civil society organisations (CSOs) have formed a taskforce that would promote dialogue on national issues.

Chairperson of the taskforce, Dorothy Ngoma, said they have been compelled to form the grouping because the situation was getting out of hand in Malawi.

The civil society actors met at Msamba Catholic Centre in Lilongwe on Tuesday.

She cited electoral disputes that bring business to a standstill in cities of Blantyre, Zomba, Lilongwe and Mzuzu and some districts whenever CSOs organise demonstrations.

There have, since May 21 Tripartite Elections results were announced on May 27, been two rounds of demonstrations.

“Disappointed that the political leadership, religious institutions, traditional leaders and the international community have not shown sufficient interest in finding a lasting solution to the current political upheaval, we have decided to act,” she said.

Ngoma has, meanwhile, called for dialogue, further urging law enforcement agencies to safeguard peace in the country.

Haswel Ganizani was elected vice chairperson of the taskforce.
