Chaponda jeered and booed in Parliament: Malawi opposition drown Minister’s voice

Opposition members of parliament on Tuesday morning gave embattled Agriculture minister George Chaponda a tough time in parliament as they booed him whenever he wanted to answer a question, drowning his voice in the process.

Chaponda: Booed

As Chaponda tried as much to ignore his detractors and answer the questions during question time, the more the booes came.

The Malawi Congress Party  (MCP) and Peoples Party  (PP) lawmakers said they did not recognise Chaaponda as a cabinet minister.

This follows reports by a presidential commission of inquiry on maizegate and a parliamentary inquiry on maizegate which found Chaponda’s dealings in the procurement of maize from Zambia as suspicious.

The two inquiries asked the Anti-Corruption Bureau to further probe him.

Deputy speaker Esther Mcheka Chilenje condemned the behaviour by the opposition back benchers.

“He is minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development. I have not received communication from the appointing authority to the contrary,” she said.

The opposition succesfully rejected him to return as Leader of the House following his month long High Court ordered suspension.

Mr zinenani and Mr The wise, there is nothing which can humiliate Chaponda here. The truth of the matter is that the opposition has been totally humiliated with the presence of Chaponda in parliament because it is the same opposition members who were dancing last week that they have successfully shown him the exit door. This jeering is just to save face. After all it just shows childishness jeering at anything somebody says. How can a sane person jeer at anything said? It only shows he does not understand what is being said or the jeering is coming from some… Read more »
