MP Kabwila accused Malawi govt of ‘sleepwalking’ in power: Nankhumwa says DPP in total control beyond 2019

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government has been accused of “sleepwalking” in power while the country is facing huge challenges.

Kabwila: Does the government exist? Search me!

The accusations were made in parliament by opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) member f parliament for Salima North East, Jessie Kabwila.

“I am actually saying as the representatives of Malawians, there is something that should be in our Constitution to say we have no government at this moment because, they are either not knowing what they are supposed to do or they are asleep, so I am worried,” said Kabwila.

It is not the first time for Kabwila to accuse DPP-led government of sleeping walking the country into a failed state.

She on record in parliament to have accused the leadership of this country to be poverty deniers and that President Peter Mutharika “does not know what he is doing.”

But Leader of the House, Kondwani Nankhumwa said government is not sleepwalking but in total control.

“Government still exists and it will continue existing beyond 2019,” Nankhumwa said.

Speaker of Parliament, Richard Msowoya also said that “government does exist.”

Said Msowoya: “It is seated and responding to questions although not all of them. But government is in position.”

Msowoya curtailed discussion on the matter after assurance from the Leader of the House that the government does exist and “a wishful thinking” that is shall still exist after 2019.

JESSIE KABWIRA anadwalapo misala komanso amagwa khunyu choncho ndibwino kumupewa.
Zaka za m’mbuyomu a Chakwera ali pa mpando wa Ubusa anamupatsa mimba ndipo ndikulankhula pano mwana mmodzi mwa ana ake ndi wa aChakwera.
Ndipo ngati akundimva anditsutse zomwe ndikulankhuladzi ngati ziri zabodza, izi ndiye zoona zeni-zeni.
ZIKOMO!!

Who is sleepwalking, opposition or government? An opposition that always fish in its own net. That can hardly outline its agenda apart from being reactive? Come 2019, which party do you think will scoop many votes in Malawi? Have you checked how many people support DPP in the center and North? Have you dared to check if the oppostion, maily MCP is existenet beyond Ntcheu? Simple Mathematics. Ndakuuzanitu chilungamo. Inu balimbanani ndi zanuzo ife DPP 2019 and beyond basi. Kanyambiteni Shire River ngati mulutsutsa.

THEY ARE SIMPLY POWER HUNGRY AND FULL OF HANGOVER FROM SHOCK DEFEAT FROM 2014 ELECTIONS. PLZ TO ACCEPT DEFEAT IN DEMOCRACY BECAUSE NEXT IT WILL BE YOUR TURN

I hope we have to be very serious about what we as a country citizenry say apart from fulfiling the bible prophecies that during end of times peoples will be selfish even to be attacking each other .

Jesse your contribution is empty and senseless This was quickly noticed by Chakwera; hence your firing. Simply shut up when you have nothing wiser to contribute because no one inde nobody even none of your constituents will ask you why you remained quiet. Hold your peace and be beautiful!

Maybe a wrong word was used but the fact is that government is in deep slumber.

Other than that, welcome Jessie. You can contribute effectively to MCP’s building
