Dear judge Mbadwa,
The narrative in the past few weeks has been revolving around the second wave of Covid-19 and the mechanisms put in place to arrest its spread in Nyasaland or the failure to handle the crisis.
I would not want to dwell on whether everything is being done according to the law. Is there a lackadaisical approach in handling the crisis of this magnitude or we were as usual caught napping for failing to prepare the much predicted second onslaught?
Many precious and productive lives were lost within the week so much that the grief that has clouded the nation cannot be quantified.
May the souls of these sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, uncles and aunties, grand papas and grand mamas lie in eternal peace.
It is without question that coronavirus is in our midst and in our case we know who has the responsibility of ensuring that the citizens are protected.
My Lord, your judgement has aptly handled such issues and it has given proper direction to all people who have to make a decision on behalf of the nation that they have to draw their mandate from the Constitution at all times.
This is the Constitution they pledged under oath that when they assumed office that they will protect.
We only hope the Nyasaland Presidential Committee on the pandemic will be up to the task now that the State of national disaster has been declared.
My lord it is my hope that some health workers who have been giving the medical profession the bad name will start acting with integrity instead of being insensitive, disseminating names of people they know are affected by the pandemic.
But amid the crisis that has gripped the entire world, the infighting within the opposition People’s Demagogic Party (PDP) only aptly summed up that the more things appear to change in PDP the more they remain the same.
The drama of statements on the forthcoming party polls tells a tale that reform is a word that will always elude some party zealots.
Power struggle is real in PDP, but I think the party is harming itself in the manner some power hungry people want to run the affairs of the party.
I am apprehensive, My Lord, because I feel people are prepared to go an extra mile to perpetuate mediocrity as long as it serves them. Nyasaland needs a strong opposition not a sectarian grouping PDP wants to establish itself to be.
I remain worried,
