DPP wants MCP punished over racist slurs: MP Bisnowaty pens Speaker

The governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) wants  National Assembly Speaker-Richard Msowoya to take action on discriminatory and racist remarks Malawi Congress Party (MPC) legislators made against independent Member of Parliament (MP) for Lilongwe City Centre Constituency, David Yakov Bisnowaty  in the House.

Mussa : I will pursue the matter with Business Committee – Pic by Solister Mogha

DPP parliamentary chief whip an acting leader of the House, Henry Mussa, said on Monday that he will “pursue” the matter with Business Committee of Parliament to ensure action is taken.

According to except from the parliamentary Hansard (printed remarks or contributions legislators make in Parliament) dated November 19, 2015, Chiga 18, Tape No.6, time 2:04pm, shows that Bisnowaty rose on point of order on MCP’s Lilongwe North East, Maxwell Thyolera remarks saying during Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda rule there was no hunger.

Bisnowaty disputed this, saying hunger was there but under dictatorship it was not reported.

His remarks irked MCP MP Alekeni Menyani who hurled the racist slurs.

“Mr. Second Deputy Speaker, Sir, we are not going to take that from imported leaders. We as Malawi Congress Party would like to respond that. Since when did he become Malawian if I may ask? Because he came to Parliament on foreign passport. If he has become Malawian it is only today. Even people of his constituency are complaining because they do not see him anymore. He has run away from the constituency and he is here disputing facts that everybody knows are true. Where was he that time”, fumed Menyani who is also MCP Director of Public Relations.

“Myuda uzipita iwe (This Jewish has to go back home).Uyu watiyamba dala uyu (He has provoked us). Ndizimene anakukuuza a DPP zimenezo, ala?(Is this what DPP has sent you say, this is stupid), Alibe mudzi uyu, alibe munda (He doesn’t a village and even a farm or garden). Akuchita chiyani kuno (What is he doing here in Malawi)? Mbava izipita kwawo iyi (This thief has to go back home). Amako anayikidwa kuti iweyo (Where was your mother buried)? Ungaloze manda wa atate ako iwe (Can you identified the graveyard of your parents?) Ndimangofuna ndimuuze kuti alie manda a mbuye ake kuno,amachita mwano ameneyu (I wanted to remind him that he doesn’t have a farm land for his parents here, he is always rude to us)”, concludes discriminatory and racist remarks MCP legislators made against Bisnowaty.

Mussa told Capital Radio ‘Daybreak Malawi’ program on Monday that the MCP rants were “unfortunate racist remarks.”

He said: “I will purse this matters to the business committee.”

Rumphi East Peoples Party (PP) outspoken legislator Kamlepo Kalua also condemned the racist remarks as “unfortunate and unconstitutional.”

“Sometimes I do understand the anger but you don’t need to go to the extreme,” Kalua said.

Meanwhile, Bisnowaty has penned the Speaker Richard Msowoya to take action, describing the racist remarks as illegal and unacceptable in the modern civilized world.

In his letter dated on November 20, 2015 addressing to the Speaker which is also available Nyasa Times, Bisnowaty seeks remedy from the speaker’s office upon failure by his deputy to act on the discriminatory and racism remarks.

Bisnowaty said the point order he rose did not condemned MCP rule on hunger situation but rather observed that there was political suppression was an order of the day which prevented people to speak out about hunger situation in their villages.

“I want to protest in the strongest terms against the relentless and senseless racism and discriminatory which I was personally subjected to by MPs from the MCP benches yesterday (November 19, 2015) in Parliament. The racial attacks were completely uncalled for and most unbecoming of an August House that makes laws against discrimination and racism. These MPs have brought this house into serious disrepute by indulging in these illegalities and blatant unconstitutional conduct.

Bisnowaty also complains that the Second Deputy Speaker, Clement Chiwaya, didn’t condemn the blatant and ugly racism that was going on in the house.

“ He didn’t rule any of these remarks un-Parliamentary nor ask for the withdrawal of any of them (under section 103 of our standing order). For the sake of maintaining the dignity of the house, I would like to ask for the removal of these racist remarks from record”, reads the latter in part which the Speaker is expected to responded on Monday, November 23 proceedings.

Bisnowaty emphatically reminded MP Menyani that he was duly elected on Malawian passport challenging him to produce evidence on allegation that he was not citizen of this country and that his constituents were complaining about his absent for developmental projects.

    Malawi has so many problems under this useless backdoor govt of Dpp.What racist slurs of Bisnowaty?Does Dpp think that will make people think that they are so caring in Malawi?It is just a waste time dwelling on this issue of racist slurs.How many things are black people called in a white man country?Discuss real things at the parliament than wasting our taxes on trivial things.Can they compare the useless Dpp party with Mcp despite having problems with Mcp?Malawi is dead with the visionless party of Dpp.The economy is in shambles.Malawians are struggling in everything.Talk real issues than appeasing some Bisnowaty.

  14. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Our MPz are very stupid. You are busy talking about Kamuzu who passed on long time ago. Henry Mussa don’t waste our tax money on this. You are paid allowances just talk about hunger during Kamuzu era. Prove to me that this Kamuzu discussion will correct our problems today.

  15. sapitwa says:

    Someone thinks government can fix the economy by printing many bank notes. The economic forces determine changes to the economy and small economies get hit hard.
    Have you compared with other currencies how they are depreciating fast against the US$?
    Check Zambia Kwacha, South African Rand, Botswana Pula etc. They have all depreciated due to their mining commodities prices depreciating and none of the people in these countries are blaming their governments to fix their currencies.
    If you want the economy get fixed quickly, then increase domestic production mainly in the lines of Agriculture for exports but gain this could not be a quick fix in the short term.

  16. Lottie says:

    Some of the comments here are surely uncalled for. Comment 45 and 41 are out of order. The fact that there is racism in South Africa does not mean that Malawi should do the same. Why do you not just come back home? The fact that you tolerate racism as an individual does not mean Malawi should do the same. Comment number 41 does not add any value to the debate at all. The issue is racism. MCP should tread carefully on this matter – otherwise its shooting itself in the foot.

His very own wife a racist ngati uyo refuses to breathe the same air as black people and she has told her husband she will never set foot in Malawi. Yet we are busy protecting this fella.

  20. Cameo says:

    I don’t see any sin committed by Bison when contributing to the hunger deliberations.

    There was hunger during Kamuzu Days. Most of the maize ordered by his government was from Kenya remember the yellow maize. It was delivered in centres I remember that time Luchenza as one of many centres.
    A pail of yellow maize was given to a villager per family.

    So MCP cannot say there was no hunger during 30 year autocratic rule of Kamuzu Banda.
    Hunger was there even during Abraham when he had a quarrel with Lot his brothers son,

    I time of Jacob named Israel when they found themselves in Egypt because of hunger.

    The only sin Biso did was the mentioning of Kamuzu on his contribution because MCP thinks they will go into Government one day by appraising Kamuzu.
    By not mentioning Kamuzu anyhow.
    By remembering people Kamuzu’s face on their party cloth thinking that people will always remember good side of kamuzu Banda.

    But let me remind the good things Kamuzu did to the youth of that time.
    I remember youth rallies when we rejoice Jampuff and Milomilo cake from Associated Bakery the able bakery of that time.

    I can also remind MCP the Iron Fist the Presidency did to Mboni Za Yehova when in my own village I witnessed the perishing of Pigs, Grocery and all belongs of a Certain able man in our area.

    No one will take away history because of love to someone.

    I close my case.

  21. John says:

    IF BISNOWARTY WANTS TO SPEAK FOR THE PEOPLE, WHY DOES HE CRTICIZE HIS GOVERNMENT PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU FOR THE THOUSANDS OF PALESTINES HE HAS KILLED?

    YES, PARLIAMENT IS A NOBLE HOUSE FOR THE BONAFIDE MALAWIANS, NOT FOR FOREIGNERS STEALING CITIZENSHIP STATUS AND THEY WANT TO LOOK WISER THAN THE OWNERS. HE WAS BETTER OFF TO JUST SHUT UP AND NOT PROVOKE PEOPLE.

    IF YOU WANT TO PROTEST, GO AND PROTEST THOSE REMARKS IN Israel, PEOPLE WILL HEAR YOU.

    BISNOWARTY MUST DESIST FROM CARELESS COMMENTS THAT MAY ATTRACT THE WRATH OF THE OTHER MPS. THIS IS WHAT FOREIGNERS ARE SUPPOSED TO DO. LEAVE THAT FOR KAMULEPO KALUA AND NOT YOU!

    to DPP the recist, tribalistic stunts of a foreigner i will say matters most. when the same is done to a country mate, lets say tumbuka, chewa, sena n the like they celebrate at it and treat it like a normal thing.

    the truth is DPP has failed and never hope for anything better from the chief actects of tribalism, racism and regionalistic thugs

  24. blessing lipengs says:

    DPP is the one to apologize for the miserly they have brought on us Malawian.this story will fade away very soon and Malawians will forget just like the scandals Mutharika has made etc brown envelopes he gave kwa atolankhani, the UN trip ,but what all Malawians will not forget is this DPP has brought once again sufferings and the nation has completely collapsed.
    only the minority rich Malawians will vote DPP again and the majority poor Malawians will vote for MCP .do you just because this statement Mmenyani made can cause a party to lose election in 3 years time ? you must be smoking Nyawupe

  25. I can’t record hunger during Kamuzu. Only the lazy people experienced it .I’m not an MCP supporter but a patriotic Malawian. In the first place, not even a Malawian can become an MP in Israel let alone point out the atrocities the government is perpetually committing on the Palestinians. The Malawian government cant even dare to stand against the Israeli government on this issue on global platform. I live in SA, I pay tax but every time I raise an opinion against the SA government, I am always reminded where I come from. So this idiot must not take Malawians as fools. He must got and become an MP in Israel and address the illegal occupation his government is doing to the innocent and defenceless people of Palestine. Free!!!! free!!! free!!! Palestine.

  26. commenter says:

    Seriously there are more problems in Malawi than to be passing racial slurs to one another. I thought MCP has a pastor that is supposed to promote harmony but instead he would rather judge someone who is actually trying to help our economy or whatever is left of it!!

  28. Charlie Hebdo says:

    MCP will never get back in Government with this calibre of MPs. It all proves that MCP is Kamuzu and Kamuzu is MCP. The party cannot shake off the ghost of Kamuzu. While other parties are progressing, suiting themselves to the situations of the day, MCP is still stuck in the past. They believe they cannot win without Kamuzu but let me tell MCP leadership that the mention of Kamuzu scares away some voters who would have probably voted for it if it were truly a changed party. Those who suffered under Kamuzu cannot vote for a party that still use Kamuzu on its party cloth. This is the party that is resisting change and its MPs are still brainwashed to this day that they think it was all paradise during Kamuzu reign. Have they already forgotten the yellow maize? We talk of ISIS but we have our own ISIS here in MCP, the brainwashed lot without an independent mind, ready to insult and possibly harm if they had the chance in the name of Kamuzu.

  30. Jappie mhango's niece says:

    MCP will apologise for what, telling the truth? Democratic Progressive Party should first apologise for the murder of Issa Njauju, Robert Chasowa and for hiding death of one Ben Phiri ‘aka Kahuna Bingu Mutharika’. DPP should account for K577 billion kwacha and apologise to Malawians for causing them untold misery. DPP should apologise!!!!! Apo bii MCP will never apologise to anybody, so Mussa get that into your liquid brain.

  31. Let Us Pray says:

    I was made to believe MCP was a changed Party but alas! It is still leaving in the past as a Party of Death and Darkness. Very unfortunate.

  32. Dolo weni weni says:

    There is no difference with the traibalistic practices DPP is doing over Malawians from outside the Lhomwe belt. Mussa should first condemn his leadership for recruiting only Lhomwes in key political positions. This is another kind of “racism” which DPP is practicing on fellow Malawians. This issue was supposed to be resolved within the Parliament session where the speaker needed to have asked MCP to withdraw the statement. The commenting section of this online newspaper is also promoting another kind of racism where commenters call each other sorts of names like nyau dancers, anguru odya njoka, ahinya etc. These are all forms of racism and should be condemned in strongest terms.

  39. Bwande says:

    Palibepo khani apa. It is true that during the time of Kamuzu, hunger was still there but was not reported because of the political environment at that time. However, the hunger was beyond the control of the govt at that. Kamuzu had put agriculture as a priority and had good policies which he tried his best to implement. It is true that Bisnowatty is a foreigner in this country and that cannot be disputed. He is a Malawian citizen by papers not by birth and we have just allowed him to live peacefully in our country. If he misbehaves, his naturalization can be revoked and chased from this country while we, the indigenous Malawians cannot get our citizenship revoked or be chased to any other country. It is true that he doesn’t have a village here. All what has been said about him is true. However, the Malawian problem is that we hate the truth. The only problem I see is that the truth was said at the wrong place and not relevant with the subject matter that was under discussion. My advice to Malawians and the govt. A Malawi tiri ndivuto lalikulu zedi losekerera ma foreigner. Ask the Malawians who have gone and lived outside. Amazuzika zedi and goes through the worst discrimination pamene kwathu kuno timangosekerera ma foreigners and leave them walk freely more than the locals. We need to change this attitude. We don’t have another Malawi. Kwathu ndikuno basi

  40. Palikanthu says:

    Why are foreigners with non-Malawi passport allowed to hold honorable office in Malawi. Our policies are very weak, that is why azungo opanda maphunziro adzadaza mu ma ofesi masquarading as Experts. Where is the labour law? How could a foreigner be an MP in Malawi?
    He is an economic leech syphoning money out of the sysyem

  41. Kanyimbi says:

    MCP needs discipline as was the case when JZU was leading the party. Otherwise now it is just like a party representing mad people in Malawi (Mad people Congress Party).

  42. ndagwada says:

    That issue doent make any sense Matchona stayed in USA for 40 year and he had green card why? because he was a foreigner. why he did not become MP? what special with him in a foreign Nation Malawi. Amalawi math ndimzungu what the difference with aja amangoti azungu andituma.

  43. Thako la Zomba says:

    Chaka china chake during the MCP era we had hunger i remember people were receiving maize through their village head. Chimanga cholandira chinali cha yellow. Anthu amati chimangacho ndi a mfumu ndi anthu awo.

  44. May I urge Razarus Chakwera to take time off the Parliament Chambers, go back to the Assemblies of God in Malawi and organize a church ceremony for all MCP members and should tell them issues which he knows about Jews. Chakwera should also concentrate on the following Biblical topics:

    a. Who are Jews and what is their origin?
    b. What is the relationship of Jews with God from Genesis 12?
    c. What happened to the state of Israel before its creation on 14th May 1948?
    d. The 6 Day War of 7th June 1967 saw the city of Jerusalem being recaptured but not Temple Mount. Why?
    e. The fulfilment of Amos 9:14-15, Isaiah 11:11-12 and
    f. Last event for Jews before Christ’s Second Coming.

    In view above, may I request you MCP legislators to refrain from and word that attacks Jews who are everywhere in the world and when they start assembling themselves again to go back to Israel, something major will happen to the whole world.

  47. Tiyanjane says:

    Really DPP. are you not the ones who are unashamedly promoting the worst form of segregation – tribalism and hate especially against people of Northern Malawi? You know very well Kamuzu never visited deporting any foreigner who uttered a single hate word against a Malawian. Kamuzu never missed a sentence of unity among all tribes in his speeches. So did Bakili. I never heard Bingu talk of unity among Malawians; instead, he was best at unleashing his police dogs on unarmed youths. As for this Peter, hiii, his hate of people fr the north was best illustrated .by his own recorded nasty remarks about Vhimunthu Banda’ Tonga origins. Haters are dPP, not MCP

  59. Moyenda says:

    It doesn’t matter the intensity of indignation. MCP MPs need to learn to restrain their tongues if they desire to sustain public trust. The racist remarks against Bisnowaty are as inexcusable as they are indefensible. As a matter of fact, it is the same attitude of blaming and ridiculing others that led someone to accuse teachers born in Northern Malawi and teaching in the Center and South that those teachers were lazy and teaching children traditional cult, nyau, instead of teaching the curriculum. Some of us forgave, the wound was healing, but now this. You are squandering your second chance(s). You either express remorse and denounce it sincerely or you’re doomed. By the way, Abusa agwire ntchito yomwe adaaitanidwira. Muyuda ndi munthu wodalitsika ndi Namalenga. We are grafted into them. What God blesses, no man can curse.

  61. wa ku Mitchesi kujaaaaa!!!! says:

    Boy! Here we thought Ms. Kabwila-Kapasula was arrogant and ignorant of humility, and was unfit to be the spokesperson of MCP?
    But the new MCP spokesperson, Mr. Menyani, has now tipped the scales; he is worse in that regard. He is “Chief Abuser”; and he ought NOT be proud of that distinction. I didn’t anyone could surpass the previous spokesperson.
    The choice of Mr. Menyani brings into focus the judgement of the MCP leader himself. In order to redeem himself, oChakwera has to remove Mr. Menyani from his position. His diatribe, and racist rants are absolutely unacceptable, by any standard of decorum, even outside Parliament.
    -oChakwera should immediately remove this guy from the prominent position in MCP;
    -oChakwera, Menyani and all those who piled on Mr. Bisno must apologizes, personally to him and in Parliament. Without reservations.
    And Mr. Bisnowarty should not relent. He mus know that not only the internet literati, but even bao players are on his side. Malawians have good standards of decorum and respect.

    Look which Party stands up for the “little” guy, the abused? DPP! That speaks volumes, to be sure. Mr. Mussa and DPP should pursue this to the end. And make sure if MCP do not atone, bao players should be reminded of that Party’s intolerance, as demonstrated since 1964. Asa.

    And, again we ask: Where are some of the vocal CSOs, when an issue that does NOT involve their bread and butter is in focus?

    Many people are willing to punish MCP at the ballot box, based on their record of intolerance. Other Parties should take advantage!

    Bisnowatty is not wanted by LL City Centre constituents. He is not even attending to funerals from the constituency evening cheering the sick. He is a foreigner period.

  64. chatonda says:

    WAS BISNOWATY AVAILABLE DURING KAMUZU’S TIME? THE REMARKS WERE INDEED RACIST BUT HE HAS NO AUDACITY TO BE TALKING THE ILLS OF KAMUZU AS IF HE WAS THERE. THAT WAS PROVOKING MCP DELIBERATELY AND MCP DID WELL BY TELLING HIM THE TRUTH.

  65. mbuyuni says:

    That’s how these people are wasting our time and money.I was there during Kamuzu erra,I can point my mums grave yard and the rest. It doesn’t require somebody to have a citizenship in order to testify that there was hunger during that time. Kamuzu was just a leader. Even in the Bible, hunger has been described. What causes hunger? Poor leadership only? Work up Malawi.

    Tiyenachoni chipani cha lazalo.Sangasinthe amenewa.Fisi ndi fisi basi or atadzola matope.

  67. Shut Up says:

    First, it is true that the MCP Government suppressed citizens from voicing out discontent. We can disagree on many things but in terms of freedoms, things are much much better now than they were during the horrible rule of Kamuzu when we feared the political elites like they were gods.

    Secondly, what an own goal by MCP flagging out the foreign origins of Bisnowaty while the true nationality of Ngwazi Dr H Kamuzu Banda remains disputed by both local and foreign historians.

    Shame

  68. Palibe nkhani apa kungoti a DPP ali pampanipani.
    Iyeyo Bisnowaty anzake akudandaula za mavuto a anthu nkumawatsutsa? Kodi ngati MCP ndie tipitilile ndizoipa?zikungondikumbutsa Muthalika anthu atamupana chifukwa chotenga anthu ochuluka ku UNGA, anvekele Kamuzu amatenganso mbumba’
    Yankho lopusa kuchokela kwa munthu opusa.

    He is a foreigner period.
