Activists slam Malawi Parliament over K300m cars

Activists Billy Mayaya and Rev Macdonald Sembereka on Sunday accused Parliament for spending K300million in procurement of four State of the art vehicles, for Speaker, deputy speakers and leader of opposition, Dr Lazarus Chakwera.

Parliament has bought a Land cruiser for the Speaker and three Toyota Prados for leader of opposition in parliament Lazarus Chakwera, deputy speakers Esther Mcheka Chilenje and Clement Chiwaya.

Chakwera is MCP president whilst Msowoya is MCP vice president. Chilenje is an independent MP while Chiwaya is UDF legislator.

Mayaya described the procurement as hypocrisy at its best.

He told Nyasa Times: “It’s reckless of the worst nature. One expected better from the opposition. I wonder if it’s the saying ‘if you can’t beat them join them.’ We have to stop this carelessness it will take Malawi nowhere.

“ I wonder what’s wrong with our politicians in Malawi be it in government or the opposition.  Of what benefit will it be for them to drive posh cars when the citizenry are deprived of basic necessities.  This must stop forthwith.”

Another member of the civil Society Macdonald Sembereka said it was unfortunate that Parliament has bought the vehicles while the economy is not doing well.

“There is a certain level of hypocrisy where on the one hand Parliament demands accountability on the part of the other branches of government and yet at the same time does not exercise austerity in the light of the current economic plight. We expected Parliament to be exemplary,” said Sembereka, who served as religious adviser to former president Joyce Banda.

Government spokesman, Jappie Mhango told Malawi News which first reported about the procurement that Parliament’s move is “ strange and disturbing” as Capital Hill banned procurement of vehicles across the board including parliament and diplomatic missions.

Mhango lashed at Parliament for being selfish in getting “fuel guzzlers” during time of economic hardships.

He the Speaker, his deputies and leaders of opposition want to live in “luxury” while the rest of tax payers are wallowing in poverty.

Speaker Msowoya said parliament purchased the vehicles as soon they got into the office last year, saying “there is nothing new that has happened on this matter.”

Malawi News in its editorial condemned the purchase of the expensive vehicles, saying the country’s leaders want “luxury at the expense of poverty”, and that “they should be ashamed.”

  1. Winston Msowoya says:

    Thank you Mr.Ambassador for your brilliant and well thought piece on Thomas Sankara’s short life,but educative and purely an African inspired conception.Yes,brother Sankara did that from his inborn commitment to help his fellow Africans who were turned into a third class citizens in their own country.Once again,thank you for feeling concerned about our people who are now suffering massively under the corrupt and tribalistically motivated regime.I can say,Muthalika’s leadership and that of his late thief brother Bingu are worse than Banda,Muluzi and JB. Let’s be fair about that.Apart from Sankara,I would add two former Statesmen: Julius Nyerere and Kenneth Kaunda( with Tumbuka blood).Both were down to earth leaders with deep conscience on human equality.For instance,Nyerere abandoned the State House left by the colonialists and built his own humble home some 20KM from Dar es salaam amid local villagers.The reason,he said,the tax-payers were over burdened with unnecessary expenses.As of brother Kaunda,he retired without a home and a foreign Bank Account.After the mindependence of South Africa,the ANC’s government under the dynamic leadership of Africa’s beloved son Madiba Mandela,offered to build him a home either in South Africa or Zambia.Kindly enough,the Zambian government offered to build one for him while he was staying with one of his sons.What a committed leadership which both of these great sons of Africa,have demonstrated? I hope Malawians have seen what is authentic leadership means.Banda built a good number of Presidential Residences costing billions of Kwacha,while the masses of our people,ended up in shanties.SHAME!!!.

  3. The cars are not personal. They were already bought but had not been delivered. Of-Clurse people are angry at every expenditure. The most bad expenditure is when a leader takes unnecessary huge group who need accommodation, flight, allowances and he hired an expensive get. That we can call bad planning. Not one European leader could have done that. He is dead. But in a poor begging nation they can do that becausea people will talk and nothing will change. Only revolution can change that. Africans are senseless and greedy. People who dont admire other nations development. Malawi will be the last nation on earth to grow. I have never seen poverty like in Malawi. It is so shame that thoses living in good arears pass by slums like they dont see this. I hate people in government and those who has stolen money and build many houses. I have no respect so ever. I am glad when I hear one dead of HIV. Because they stole money to buy sex with young people to buy small cars and pay rent in guest wings. Many of these men have children with girls and their wives dont know. I know some living in area 47, 10. 12, etc. I feel bad.

  8. chinkombaleza gumanyundo gowa says:

    If Principal Secretaries can drive Prados What more with the Speaker and Leaders of opposition. Am sure this was budgeted for. Its part of their package. But lets talk of fuel allocation. Is it justifiable to receive 1000 litres fuel per month for ministers? Which trips do they make? Do they work in their offices? or else they are always up and down the whole country. From Nsanje to Chitipa. You can calculate yourselves how many Kilometers you can Travel. How many times can you travel Chitipa to Nsanje? Please some of these expenses can be cut and save for other government services. Salaries yes you can maintain. Mafutawo akumangogawira anthu ena ena kusandutsa cash ya pathumba.

    Don’t blame recipients but those that did the procurement.

  10. Winston Msowoya says:

    Malawians,we’ll come to the Disneyland.It is pretty sad that the representatives people elected to the Parliament represent their own greedy ends.The 9th September,1964 Cabinet Crisis,opened my eyes and my brains for the rest of my life particularly the six Cabinet Ministers’ intrepid eloquence,never failed to arouse my admiration and respect for them and all of us who were there highly developed sense of pride,but the question arose,if these brilliant and patriotic young leaders fail to unseat Banda,what would be the future of our dear Malawi? The response is,what we’re seeing today.Our country has been thrown to the vultures with uncertain future.What I and my comrades most of them I do not know where they are apart from Dumbo Leyman whom Iam told has passed way.I respect him being a human being and a Malawian,but he betrayed us during the course of our struggle against Banda’s regime.To cut long story short,Iam pretty sad that our representatives ( MPs) have absolutely thrown our people to vultures whereby their future and the future of their children remain in limbo.How would the government spend K300m purchasing cars for officers,while the country, is in tumultuous state of the economy.Time has come for Malawians to unite and hold the government responsible for the sinking economy of our nation.Let us stop calling each other names as Tumbukas,Chewas,Lomwes,Yaos etc,let us focus on real enemies,who are the so- called leaders who swim in golden waters and leave our people swim on ferocious inferno,let not allow them to divide us and eventually,tame us like goats or pigs.

  11. Winston Msowoya says:

    Malawi,welcome to the Disneyland.In Sept.1964 while I was at Zomba Governent Secondary School which had just opened for form 1 students only then,I had an opportunity to attend the Pariamentary proceedings pertaining to the famous Cabinet Crisis which started on the 9th September 1964.Myself and a few friends including late Dumbo Leyman were encouraged by the Head Master Mr.Mohamedson to attend the proceedings on behalf of our fellow students.To me it was an historic movement that I will never forget in my life time.Later we were joined by an overwhelming number of civil servants who abandoned their offices for that sake.To cut long story short,I and my friends were highly impressed to with the eloquency

  13. Ambassador says:

    I would like to urge all the leaders from both sides government and that of opposition to carefully read the history and learn the true life of a selfless leader and patriotic son of Africa,Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso.
    In solidarity,he had to limit his possession to only own a Car(probably the Renault which was the cheapest)
    4bicycles,
    3guitars,
    1fridge,
    1broken freezer and he refused the use air conditioning in his office,and not only that he reduced his monthly salary from over a $1000,down to $450 per month is that not enough lesson for Malawi leaders?

    Ayamba kunamizila kuti zinthu zikuvuta ku malawi chifukwa cha magalimoto agulidwa ndi parliament. komanso akunamizila kuti JB ndi amene wabweretsa mabvuto pogolitsa ndege. able, anthuawa alimmavuto oopsa zedi!!!! they are failing to govern malawi!

  15. Chilungamo Chimawawa says:

    Because Chakwera and Msowoya belong to MCP thats why this idiot govt and atidyenawo are making noise. If these cars went to Petara or ministers or dausi and his idiot friends they were going to be quiet. umenewu ungakhale utsogoleri??????

  16. sapitwa says:

    Most of the people who support the MCP are in their late 20s and early 30s and when Malawi became Democracy in 1994, they were little ones to understand how bad was the animal MCP. This is a monster which abused us (I included) physically. You could not reason with them especially the Chewas, eeeh! They were so brutal. You haven’t seen the real MCP; wait until they are in power, then you will remember this.They will buy mansions, their MCP HQs will not pay bills and no one will say kwe-kwe-kwe! They will throw you in the Bunker under the MCP House.
    Just read their history and if you think they have changed, well forget it. We have allowed this party to survive yet our neighbors in Zambia and our friends in Kenya vowed to ensure their monster parties never survived.

    Kodi kulakukhu mungolakhula chachilendo ndichani pakuti zaka 20 zathazi Taona Boma likugula magalimoto panu chavuta ndi chani Peter ndi Dr chakwela asiyana pati akunonga misokho ya mbili ndani

  18. ngongoliwa says:

    The most extravant leader of opposition ever lived in Malawi is Dr Laza. K96 million car for only one person, Laza. If you were the president of Malawi, would you have accepted this K96 million kwacha car. No you would have gone for a car that cost over K200 million kwacha or you would have gone for a jet. Bad leader of opposition. JTZ held that position for 20 years but he never demanded that type of a car. I mean you have ran away from pastorhood for politics just enrich yourself. A foolish opposition leader.

  19. selfish decision says:

    Its funny that we have been hearing financial scandals at parliament but we haven’t ever heard of any culprit of this malpractice taken into task.I strongly believe whoever purchased these cars received a token behind doors.
    Please do your underground investigations somebody might get a kickback out of this shameful ,greedy move.
    Lastly what is the outcome of their (parliament ) cashgate we heard last time.
    Remember cheaper and nice cars are available at the market so why pompous .Next time you will be looking for will a chopper

  20. Mirella K says:

    We are in for mess. Trust, chakwera is even more of good for nothing and never be disillusioned that we will ever be developed under him. Never! All he wants and dreams about is state house. Nothing more!

  21. Martin chibweya says:

    How many vehicles of this type are with the ministers and PS’s ???? I went and attended one function the Independence day 6 July I saw over 100 of this type of state of the art as you call them …..

  22. jimbo says:

    Looks like the chief opposition party’s motto is, ‘If you can’t beat them, join them’. Wasting much needed forex on luxuries is typical of this government. The MCP do not deserve to be in government either as they are clearly tarred with the same brush. Useless government with no credible opposition, what a hopeless situation for poor Malawians!

  23. Ma says:

    Who told you Chakwera is transparent? Give him access to cash then yiu will know him Amalawi kutengeka oh Chakwera obona he he he kubona ndi cash ndi ndale?

    Really Chakwera arriving in his expensive car in the poorest land of Malawi. I am told Chakwera demanded for it in parliament.

Malipilo wokwera udazikwezera wekha nthawi ija , lero ndi iwe uli phwii mu MG 393 AH. Ndiye mkumati utha kudzalamulira mosiyana ndi anzako

  26. golo says:

    I have no respect for Richard Msowoya, the Speaker. This man has no heart and is very selfish and egoistic. He says people should not question the purchase because in his words” do you want us to be walking”. This man has already at his disposal a top of the range Mercedes Benz as his official vehicle-how then was he ever going to walk on foot? How does he justify the purchase of a VX V8 vehicle when he already has a Mercedes Benz? MCP is the official opposition party and the party we all hoped to save us from DPP. But going by this carelessness and selfishness of Mr Msowoya, I think my vote will definitely not go to MCP even if it means me not voting.

  33. RESTRORATION says:

    M’mafuna azikwera njinga. After all the vehicles were bought last year. The two activists mentioned in the story are sometimes not genuine as were supposed to know when the vehicles were bought.
    It should also come to your knowledge that the vehicles are not personel -see the number plate MG.
    Why do you want to cover up your mess with normal things.
    Bwana Chakwera and Richard Msowoya please use those vehicles with peace you deserve them.

  34. W. PHIRI says:

    SOMETIMES WE SHOULD READ THROUGH THE LINES. THE VEHICLES WERE PURCHASED LAST YEAR AND NOT THIS YEAR. MUTHARIKA EXPENSES INCURRED THIS YEAR WHEN YOUR PRESIDENT SAID HE IS A MILLIONARE. ITB IS THE PARLIAMENT THAT APPROVED THE PURCHASE . THE PRESIDENT VISIT TO USA WAS NOT APPROVED BY PARLIAMENT. IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT DR CHAKWER AND SPEAKERS, YOU SHOULD BE CONDEMING THE PARLIAMENT AND THESE INDIVIDUALS. AFTER ALL WHEN THE PARLIAMENT PASSES THE BILLS THE PRESIDENT ASCENDS TO THEM. WHAAT WRONG HAS JESSY DONE?

    WE HAVE SO MANY DULL PEOPLE THAN WE THINK. THE VEHICLE HAS A GOVERNMENT NUMBER PLATE. THE RULES STIPULATES THAT THE SPEAKERS SHOULD HAVE VEHICLES. WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE HIGHLIGHTED IS ” WHY DO WE STILL HAVE THE DEPUTY SPEAKERS AFTER THEIR CASHGATE ISSUE OF RENT!!!!!!!!!!!”

  38. Dr Haswel P Bandawe says:

    The issue is: how does Parliament justify such extravagance of spending K300 000 of four vehicles when the budget is tight, taxes are high. The shortage of foreign exchange reserves has caused scarcities of medicines. The country has recently appealed for international food aid; and recent graduants in medicine and health care have not been employed due to budget constraints.

    As rightly pointed out by other commentators, how will Parliament restrain the Execitive branch which has a penchant for misusing the meagre financial resources on ostentatious life-style at the expense of the poor tax payer?

    How do the do-called “donours” view our carelessness with finances when we go with a cap crumpled and folded under our armpit to beg for money? We are still under the show of “cash gate” and now this? Do we have any sense of national pride?

    Are our elected representatives that selfish? This is disappointing.

  39. A Malawian living in Azerbaijan says:

    From today am no longer an MCP supporter,Mr Chakwera and his party Deputy Msowoya are trying to sabotage the Economy at the expense of poor Malawians,that’s uncalled for,its morally wrong and totally unacceptable.
    To make it worse Mr msowoya has been quoted in the media as laughing saying he deserve it no matter what Malawi is going through.
    That’s careless and so stupid coming from a respectable person as you Mr Speaker

  41. drzeus says:

    If truth b told why our leaders and CEOs rush to buy these expensive vehicles, it is bcoz they know that at the end of 4years they will buy the cars for a song! For example a top of the range Prado will b sold for less than K5million although the price now is K75million! The only remedy is to stop this wanton theft in government. Let us not follow blindly what the private sector is doing? The private sector makes profits! How do u justify the former Speaker of Parliament(Chimunthu Banda) acquiring all his official vehicles a Mercedes Benz and 2 Toyota Landcruiser VX V8 during his tenure? These vehicles must b auctioned or sold by tender.

  58. sikusinja says:

    Nice move by the DPP govto show that the MCP leaders Chakwera and Msowoya are just as selfish.

  59. drzeus says:

    Ndikumasuleni a Malawi, the reason why all our leaders and top management insist in buying these top range vehicles is that they r rest assured that they will at the end of 4years buy the vehicles at 10% or less of the original cost. Chimunthu Banda bought a top range Mercedes Benz and two Land Cruiser VX V8. The only way to stop this madness is to stop this crazy idea of giving the vehicles to the incumbents. Immagine a Toyota Land Cruiser VX V8 which costs over K90million will b bought by the incumbents at less than K5million in 4years time! Let the vehicles b sold by tender or public auction to the public.

  60. SONG says:

    Mind you guys if it DPP Speakers this couldn’t come out but because it is coming from opposition you talk shit. Stop that nonsense otherwise every five years Parliament purchases vehicles for speakers and leader of opposition. Worked hard so that come 2019 you become speaker or leader of opposition and acquire new posh vehicles. What you wanted is that speakers and Leader of opposition should have been using their own cars. How many vehicles were purchased for the statehouse.

  61. KALULU says:

    THOSE ARE GOVERNMENT VEHICLES

    MCP Kwachaaa on the forefront of plundering government lean resources while hospitals run out of drugs! A Chakwera you have lost your moral ground for demanding financial discipline from leaders in government. Is Chakwera not greedy, will he be any better? He and His Vice Msowoya want to drive presidential cars now, what will happen if we make a mistake of putting them into government? Your guess is as good as mine!
