Malawi: Govt Lose Out on K80 Billion EU Aid

Malawi has finally lost out an K80 billion European Union aid package after the government failed to pass the Access to Information Bill (ATI) whose deadline is expiring midnight on December 31, 2015. Minister of Information Jappie Mhango echoed President Peter Mutharika on Wednesday that government will not be pushed to pass the bill. "The government will not be pushed into taking this bill to parliament. The government wants a good law and will pass this bill into law at an appropriate time," stated the Minister. " Don't push us too much, give us space to do a thorough job, we are doing our best," said Mhango. A few weeks ago, Mutharika said he would not work under pressure because of ultimatums. The powerful media owners, including Zodiak managing director Gospel Kazako, Times Group managing director Leonard Chikadya, Nation Publications Limited chief executive officer Mbumba Banda and Capital Radio owner Al Osman gave Mutharika an ultimatum on the bill.
