Another opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Member of Parliament (MP) has joined the chorus advocating for a federal government for the Central Region.
First MCP lawmaker on record to back the calls for federism in National Assembly was Alekeni Menyani.
On Monday MP for Kasungu East Madalitso Kazombo contributing to the 2014/15 debate started advocating for a federal government for the Central Region.
He was heckled by MPs from the government side, mostly from South Malawi, but Kazombo refused to be stampeded and made his points clear.
“When we speak like this, it means it pains us. It pains us to see Kapyanga area with a population of 4 000 people, but it has no health centre,” Kazombo said.
Kazombo said former president the late Kamuzu Banda laid foundations in education by constructing schools and colleges across the country, but other leaders since then have failed to replicate that.
First Deputy Speaker Esther Mcheka Chilenje warned MPs against bringing “controversial issues which will bring disorder in the House.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
