Thereafter, the Executive Director of Lost History Foundation, Conleith Selenje chipped in to articulate a position in support of the stance that the dissident cabinet ministers took during the cabinet crisis. This was then followed by a presentation by a historian called Rodney Tingokanyama to defended the actions that Prime Minister Dr. Kamuzu Banda took in dealing with the cabinet crisis.

After the three presentations, the audience which was dominated by students and lecturers from the University of Malawi, was given the opportunity to share their own insights and reflections on the cabinet crisis.
