Govt cautiously praise opposition MPs

Leader of the House Francis Kasaila has given a cautious praise to the opposition for the smooth deliberations in parliament, saying this was in contrast to reports that the opposition were ganging up to make the business chaotic.

Kasaila: So far so good

Kasaila said as parliament is on a weekend recess.

“We have done very well. The perception was that this parliament would e very chaotic but we have moved on very well despite some clashes here and there,” he said.

He said from Monday, the parliamentarians will now be debating and passing bills which he said will help Malawi get out of the poverty trap.

“We all agree that the economy is not doing very good and we must all put our brains together,” said the minister.

He has however not committed himself to say if one of the bills is the much talked about Access to information bill which President Peter Mutharika assured would be tabled in this seating of parliament.

Mutharika faced severe criticism from the opposition benches for his 25 minute state of the nation address which they said lacked substance and facts and others mocked it as a tweet.

Outside parliament, Mutharika said he is soon to invade Karonga Nyungwe, the Malawi Congress Party stronghold in the north as its MP is MCP vice president and Speaker of the national assembly Richard Msowoya.

Mutharika warned the MCP and People’s Party leadership to stop castigating and provoking him, saying he is human and he can retaliate.

Some political leaders at the Saturday Mangochi rally openly castigated and insulted MCP president Lazarus Chakwera and PP president Joyce Banda.

  1. Prince Edward rsa you seem well versed with voting issues, can U tell us what proportion of voters voted for chakwera? JB? Looking at individual candidates, APM got the majority of the votes or I’m I dreaming like you are? Get your facts right. Let me tell you, if we were to vote again today, I would vote for APM not these other unpatriotic leaders who are fighting tooth and nail to pull Peter down.

    Some of the comments posted on this are really nepostic and lacks merit. Respect the Leader. One day you will be fished out with these comments. Shallow brains need to know their limits. I pity you. Be informed that whether you want or not the incumbent Leader will rule this country for the mandated 10 years.Kungokhala ndi mtima wa nkhwizi basi mmalo moti muzithandiza kubwera ndi aĺterbative. Tikukuonanitu.

    We’re wasting our precious time and scarce resources on the so called developmental rallies. What development are we talking about if all speeches are full of uncalled for castigations. I wish our leaders stopped campaigning-while-already-to-power for once. Where did you promise to take Malawi in the next 5 years? Deliver please, no empty promises are entertained in this era of global SDGs.
