APAM says Dausi’s apology not in ‘good faith’


Association of Persons with Albinism in Malawi (APAM) President Overstone Kondowe has described an apology offered by Minister of Homeland and Security Nicholas Dausi as ‘not done in good faith’.

Dausi is on record to have told the press last week that there was no need for APAM to stage a vigil on March 3, as planned, because attacks on persons with albinism have not reached crisis levels.

The remarks attracted strong condemnation from all corners with many calling for Dausi’s apology.

Others went further by calling on President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika to fire Dausi over his careless remarks.

Due to pressure Dausi on Monday afternoon offered his apology to APAM during a media briefing.

Dausi said he truly regrets that the true meaning of he had intended at that briefing did not come out as it was.

But APAM has trashed Dausi’s apology describing it as not an honest apology.

“Let me say that it is APAM that requested for the apology and that he should also step down. We are yet to see a copy of that apology. His apology, though not addressed to us, is not honest. Why has it taken him that long to make the apology? Is it because of pressure?” said Kondowe.

Kondowe also hinted that the planed vigil at State House slated for next week is still on.

Meanwhile APAM has refused to meet President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika this coming Thursday at Kamuzu Palace.
