Anyone who dares to impeach Speaker Msowoya ‘azampokera vimwekumweku’ warns Mwenefumbo

Karonga central member of parliament (independent) Frank Mwenefumbo has warned legislators against attempting to impeach Speaker Richard Msowoya.

Mwenefumbo: MPs be warned, don’t you dare attempt to impeach Speaker

Mwenefumbo: MPs be warned, don’t you dare attempt to impeach Speaker

Msowoya is an elected member of parliament from Karonga.

Speaking in parliament, Mwenefumbo said the Speaker will not be impeached.

“The Speaker comes from Karonga. Karonga is a very tiny district in this country and yet the Right Honourable Speaker, you are the Speaker here. Whether one likes it or not, the Speaker shall not be impeached,” he said.

Mwenefumbo added: “ That bill (impeachement, whether it is from either side shall never see its day to the floor of this House. “

He warned: “The Right Honourable Speaker comes from Karonga, if anyone dares to continue with that bill azampokera vimwekumweku [will be stuck with lightning].”

But the Speaker ruled Mwenefumbo “ out of order” for using the word Vimwekumweku, saying it is not parliamentary.

There have been insinuations that ruling DPP were plotting to impeach the Speaker.

But Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Samuel Tembenu denied any knowledge of an impeachment plot facilitated by his office citing Section 53 of the Constitution which states that such a motion can only originate from the House.

Deputy government chief whip, Grace Chiumia denied that DPP has hatched a plot to impeach the Speaker.

She however claimed that some Malawi Congress Party (MCP) lawmakers were not happy with the Speaker, who is a member of the party.

If anything, Chiumia, who is also Minister of Youth Development and Sports, pointed out that MCP would be gunning for the Speaker’s ouster, claiming that she had names of opposition MPs who were agitating for the Speaker’s removal for interfering with the MCP leadership.

Msowoya apparently faced impeachment over his alleged bias in the handling of the petition by rights activist Billy Mayaya to declare vacant seats of 11 United Democratic Front (UDF) MPs who moved to the government benches in Parliament to cement their party’s working relationship with governing DPP.

A Speaker can be removed by a resolution of the House following 14 days  of debate on a motion signed by a third of the members followed by a secret ballot for two thirds majority vote but the government can only achieve that with 128 MPs on its side, according to new Standing Order 32 to 34.

    It is not about ruling but the quality leadership.Malawi is the most backward country in the world because the illiterate measurement of putting somebody on the post is tribalism instead of policies.Akubwera Ku Malawi anthu amachita kumvetsa chisoni.They looked malnourished,osasamba and older for their ages.Its only a few people who are benefitting from the system.A Udf anatha style trying kumwera pamsana wa Pitala in a dodgy way.Wachita bwino Mwenifumbo kuwamasula.Azaone vimwekumweku.

  11. Walila Mvula says:

    Please look at the ROOT cause of all this. It is Mwenefumbo. He needs to be arrested. A law maker can not produce such statements in Parliament. Kodi Atumbuka bwanji simunatukule kwanuuuu? I have lived up North and it is a shame to see where you so called educated come from. Muli Phwii ku mwela. This is what you have to know: Atumbuka kwao sakondana. Ine ndinakwatila Mtumbuka waku Mpoto konko. Amandiuza zimenezi. Ndipo ndinawona dekha. Kukakhala kuzunza Mkazi ndiye lekani. Ndichifukwa chake akazi akumpoto amafuna waku Mbulantaya.

    No matter how u can ta , God will always curse some nitorious people, land, area etc. Dont let allow yr speaches to attract God”s anger. Malawi is poor, & we should feel pity of ourselves. Dont just be proud for nothing. Politicians like UDF leaders are greedy. We have known you now. Dats why I always say Malawians have foresight

  14. Makhuwira says:

    Edger Lungu is a lomwe ruling Zambia . Malawi is a dead country full of nepotism . Timbukas are Tanzania or Zambians that’s why no one from that side can rule this country . Malawians are jealousy people mainly the lomwes . We are not civilised that’s why our country can’t be developed and its the poorest country in the world . Why do you hate northerners .

  15. Leave him alone!

  16. Mweneeee says:

Nanga vindindi which rocked Karonga? Your arguments were indeed foolish. It is a fact that majority of MCP Mps would rather see Msowoya off as a speaker because he is an intruder – period. He was bulldozed to them by Chakwera (kaya amakwera ng’ombe kaya!) They are just baying for UDF MPs to kick start the impeachment and it is coming. Currently the head of judiciary ndi mtumbuka and also legislator ndi mtumbukanso. Koma daily weweeee! weeeeee! ife mukutisala

  33. Kennedy says:

    My fellow malawians, are these comments you’re making going to develop our nation or you’re commenting to show which party you belong to? If anyone here has a sense of humour can clarify your ignorant. I’m tumbuka but if any mp or speaker even the president is inexperience or perhaps breach the law he or she must be shown the boot. We need anyone who can or will develop malawi i mean any tribe not self enrichmenters.

  34. Roots says:

    Phodox

    I feel sorry when you see a person calling himself civilised writting stupid things like these on this forum. I think its high time we all stand against nepotism on this forum. Leave the speaker, palibe chimwene wachita cholakwa. I think nepotism is barbaric. Shame on your tribe and your mother.

    She could have taught you how to argue on facts and not tribe. Our country indeed cannot develop with this thinking, anthu ozolowera kugulisa temiki ku Limbe olo kugwira mmashop ammwenye. Galu and u dont respresent Alomwe but Mfiti..

  38. Vimwekumweku says:

    Heeeiih! Tumbukas, Do you think the impeachment law came for Msowoya as a Speaker. No! It was formulated for any speaker who brings confusion in the August house by taking contradictory decisions. UDF Mps didnot just wake up in the morning and found themselves on the govt. side. It was his plot with MCP to allow them(Udf) to reallocate so that he can come up with section 65 using an outsider(Mayayayaya). Msowoya deserves to be impeached whether there is vimwekumweku (ziphaliwali ) or not. The next speaker should come from independent Mps. Come on independents, this is your chance, support the motion.
    Lets follow rules of the game. Democracy is all about the majority to rule and the minority to listen and follow. It is not about Demography!!!!

  39. wez says:

    chifukwa nchiyani atumbuka akati alamulile enanu nkuyamba zidolidoli? Look we are also malawian and we deserve to have a position in any goverment they will be no other malawi so pls u like us or u hurt us we remain malawians. Yankhulani chimene munthuyo walakwa osati poti ndintumbuka then nayoni! The speaker is going no where just kill urself…

  40. william says:

    Mutumbuka and am proud to be a tumbuka and same time am proud to be a malawian no one will take that away from me. I agree to what the mp says if u dare to remove this seapiker nizonya mwazowela kutipondeleza mumaganiza kuti sitikuonani. kulichani ku 47 or ku Nancholi chimene munyadila? Opempha mumiseu alitho! Ndiye muzinyada mukagwele uko nditizitchito taamwenye mukunyadanato. Mulibe manyazi kapena tinene kuti simumayende pitani ku lusaka kapena TZ mukaone chitukuko cheni cheni osati kumanyada nditinyumba togona nkhukuto ndi agalu.

  43. Ayatollah Khamini says:

    Before you start impeaching the speaker why not start impeaching your dull president!

  44. Achikopa says:

    If Chimunthu Banda and Luis Chimango failed to implement section 65 , it means they were bad speakers of parliament. If you follow parliament proceedings well, then Rodwell Mnyenyembe was indeed a hero. Remember late Chakakala Chaziya was kicked out of parliament for crossing the floor from MCP to UDF. Another one was Nsanje parliamemtarian who also faced the wrath of section 65 for moving from MCP to UDF.Both were delt with under Rodwell Mnyenyembe. Richard Msowoya is genius and rational. Why are UDF legislators afraid if they have done nothing wrong?Let the law do its work. Infact the attorney general has just demonstratated his shallow understanding of section 65. The 11 UDF MPs are going no matter what. malawians are watching.

  45. Gulugufe says:

    What Mwenefumbo has said just confirms what we knew all along kuti atumbuka amadalira zaufiti ndipo ndi odzikonda!

    So what if Msowoya is from Karonga? Vimwekumweku vimwekumweku chani!

  46. Shocker says:

    Can someone tell me five facts which makes Atumbuka to be called tribalistic, nepotistic and regionalistic. He/she also give five facts what makes people call Alomwe tribalistic, nepostistic and regionalistic. Finally give five facts which makes Achewa to be called tribalistic, nepotistic and regionalistic. Give examples for each fact. If you analyse your facts you will see that no tribe is better than the other on the this. It is all about there is no ME without YOU.

  47. Mphondo says:

    Man from Malawi’s Benghazi

  48. Professor Dr. James Napwiri Phiri says:

    Frank Mwenefumbo was out of order. He is tribalistic and regionalistic. Argue on points

  49. Flamingo says:

    Why should we impeach him? we are running the government and running government is a serious business amangwetu!

  50. nyoni says:

    LETTER TO MWENEFUMBO

    You can not do anytthing against the Lomwes. Ask Ungapake who ran away from Mulanje due to swarm of bees. Kamuzu Banda was completely handled in Mulanje by bees.

    You can even just go to Nsanje. There are 5000 strange male crocodiles which can devour you from different sources like from your own cup of water on the living room, cup of hot tea, bottle of cold drinks , mchipanda cha mowa. Mr Man Lomwes no longer use thunders for striking an enemy. Its old and cheap african technology. Mr Mwenefumbo if your grandfather trained you in witchcraft, dont think our Lomwe elders did not. Lomwe can handle you quiet well on the ground and in the air during day or night. we are all africans with similar cultures. `

  51. mtumbuka 1 says:

    Mtumbuka (though you wish you were one)who said area47 is not in Malawi? People build in cities cos they are looking for opportunities,how many tobacco tenants are employed in the northern region to work on farms?are there no tobacco estates in the south or centre? You sound hell bent on nepotism and these are some of the things Malawi will never develop cos of some misguided indeviduals like you.

  52. mtumbuka 1 says:

    Ya waphalire nadi wanthu wazereza! He was elected on merit so let him discharge his duties without interference. Hands off msowoya or be visited by Vimwetumwetu in parliament.

  53. Modusi says:

    I didn’t know that TUMBUKAS eat and drink nepotism, regionalism, tribalism, and all the isms. How can Mwenefumbo, as old as he is, stand up and argue based on where the speaker comes from and not based on the speaker’s professional conduct in the August House? What a shame! I can’t believe this. To make matters worse some commentators on this forum are clapping hands for such an argument. Three quarters of people from that side are dumb. Sorry for saying this, but I think this is the truth.

  54. Phodox says:

    Whether they call you Mr Namaloko or JB I will take you head on. The issue here has nothing to do with the Lomwe. We are just driving the country on the presidency seat.

    In fact Richard Msowoya is supposed to be impeached before he drives Malawi astray. He is not the first speaker for opposition in Parliament and MCP for that matter. We Louis Chimango represent MCP as a speaker during Bingu. The country didnt complain at all. The MCP or Ungapake to be specific did not complain. I mean all Malawians were happy with the speaker was deliberating bills in August House. Chimango comes from Central region. Then we had Chimunthu Banda, we had no problems with him during PP. Yet he had the power to bring confusion in the house since Chimunthu was for PP from DPP regime. Chimunthu did his job quiet well. Above we had late Rodwell Munyenyembe who died working for the good of this country ( R.I.P Rodwell).

    But look at this thing known as speaker, Richard Msowoya, He is a self Tumbuka. Useless speaker who is likely to bring war into Malawi.He is useless and idiotic.Muoneni ali bii ngati kuseli kwa mphika.I wish tha vimwekumweku to come and strike that thing immediately if vimwekumweku means male giant thunder.

    Word of caution , trade very carefullyfor the betterment of mother malawi. It will be strange for a speaker by the name of Richard Msowoya to be the causes of of war in Malawi. Shame. Chindere iwe. Bwinotubwinotu umusatira chindere chidafa pangoazi ya pagalimoto ija mchikangawa chikuchokera kwawo ku holide. Wosamangoliwona dzikolitu ayi.Ngini yamako Msowoya. You must two options when making decision, the stability of Malawi and laws of Malawi.Achewa sikuti angakuthandizeni inuyo a Tumbuka lero ayi adapha abale anu ambiri through road accidents. Bola a Lomwe adakuthandizani ndi nsiwu wa Karonga.

  55. Jastasi says:

    Forget of impeaching speaker he is covered by the blood of Jesus and secured by the fire of the holy ghost in Jesus name and we will pray intensity for him infact we have already done that so he is safe take it or live it

    Whether one likes it or not DPP and UDF they are here to stay viva DPP/ UDF alliance viva ….mumwa surf chaka chake ndi chino

  58. Mtumbuka says:

    These comments leads to kuzikonda kwa Atumbuka basi “Wakwithu wakwithu”. Any argument in parliament now is about looking in other regions plate and comparing with zakwithu ku North. Surprisingly many of you dont develop your own districts and u expect gvt to do it for u. You are wasting money building in Area 47, 43, Namiwawa while you have nothing in Ntchenachena. Lead by example.

  59. ZZ Junior says:

    We will impeach this useless speaker. Ife kwathu ndiye kwenikweni kwa ziphaliwali. Ask anybody about thyolo belt. we Know a thing or two about these things. So those threats are nothing in our eyes. WE WILL IMPEACH the pkeaker.
