MP Kachale says Malawi satisfied with ‘shameful mediocrity’

Member of Parliament for Zomba Malosa, Roy Kachale of Peoples Party (PP) has said Malawi is now a nation that is “satisfied in the face of shameful mediocrity.”

Roy Kachale Banda: Mediocrity

Roy Kachale Banda: Kickbacks are the order of the day

Kachale said in parliament condemning financial scandals that have seen the nation losing donors trust.

“We have become a nation content in the face of wanton thievery, merciless plunder and incessant abuse of our own resources,” said Kachale.

He pointed out that the private sector has been severely handicapped by “thievery unabated at every stage of the business function.”

He said: “Kickbacks are the order of the day and corruption has become the norm. We live in times when companies lose more of their assets to the own employees than to outsiders.”

Kachale, a son of former president Joyce Banda, said the public sector situation is even more pathetic.

“In fact, this is the area where the rot is absolutely conspicuous. Government is losing a lot of money because of dubious procurement deals perpetrated by foreigners masquerading as Malawians using our brothers and sisters to plunder resources meant for our mothers, fathers, sons and daughters,” said the Zomba Malosa MP.

He said there is a lot of corruption in the procurement of pharmaceuticals, educational resources and fertilizers in the Farm Input Subsidy Programme

“Mr Speaker, Sir, stories have been told of senior government officials setting up companies and to this same companies awarding lucrative contracts in the process,” he said.

But Government Chief Whip, Henry Mussa standing on a point of order accused Kachale of making “very serious allegations” without producing evidence.

“He is picking on civil servants who have no voice responding in this Chamber. That in itself is out of order,” said Mussa.

The Speaker Richard Msowoya ruled that the point of order be sustained.

“I think let us speak of people who can have a chance of defending themselves,” said the Speaker.

Clementine, are you sure that DPP will put things in order? You are just as stupid as DPP itself. You are a dunderhead. DPP did more damage than PP.
