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.

    Surely he should have advised his own mother against theft and cashgate.

  7. The Most Concerned says:

    Amayi ako atibwenzere ndege yathu! Imagine ma Ethiopians akuthawira ku Malawi kuno, yet Mayi ako akuthawira kunja, akuopa chani?

  8. folopensi says:

    I did not know that we still have a Gulugunya like you. You dont even remember that donors sowed us their because of your mother who is a champion of cashgate in Malawi.He stole many billions of our taxes. She is even shy to look Malawians at the forehead bcause what she did. Then what are saying. If it laughing at this matter, Roy could be the last mouth to laugh.Let me remind you the son of the thief that your mother was paid her pensions.But she is going aroud the world telling people that she can not come here because of insecurity and her pensions. Is she telling the truth? How? Are we in Afghanistan, or Pakistan, or Israel, or Nigeria or Somalira, or South Sudan, or DRC where killing one another is the order of the day? No this is Malawi. The truth is that your mother is running away from cashgate cases, maizegate cases, jetgate cases, other cases. She imprisoned Muthalika. Then why running away. Let her come so that she can be arrested too. Roy ulibe nzeru ngat a amako basi. Garu wachabe chabe iwe.

  9. mapapaya says:

    Amayi ako ndi amene aanabamo mmbomamo. Ulibe manyazi poyankhula zimenezi.

  10. Njolinjo says:

    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.

  11. Bwande says:

    Is this not the same Kachale who had suspicious dealing with ESCOM mpaka anakawotcha head office!!! What was he doing when his mother was receiving 200 cars from Lutepo? Where was he when JB was selling the Jet? Azikamba enawo zimenezo enanu mmmnn

  12. ZZ Junior says:

    I must admit, never been a fun of Honorable Roy Kachale koma apa wayankhula. The problem facing Malawi is politics. One may have substance in their contributions koma just because they belong to a different camp it is shot down. Why is the chief whip defending the civil service? doesn’t he know how it operates? it is attitude of leaders like these that are bringing Malawi down.

  13. Berson says:

    if this spirit started a little earlier we wouldnt be talkin of cash gate in former regime and escom house in BT wouldnt be lying in desolate as if a war torn country.cry the beloved country.

  14. Mzozo kununkha says:

    ROY!!! ROY!!!!! ROY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First renovate the Escom House, your hands are dirty because of what you did to that building Roy, remember we are in this state because of your mother’s style of leadership and your actions as well umboni ndi ku Escom do you think we are all blind…… kodi ndalama za ma transformer udatenga zija udagula? mmalo mwake unaotchesa building ija aachimwene!!!!!!

  15. kambavi Euthini says:

    Let Roy talk, we dont need to have negative assumptions for the things of National benefit just becoz he is from opposition

  16. Njalayamalamuchiuno says:

    What ever other people might say about cashgate, an honest ordinary Malawian knows that JB genuinely unearthed fraud and corruption during her time and had the nerve to order a quick forensic audit and never stopped talking about her determination to deal with those who were involved. On the other hand, lack of push on the mammoth Mk577 billion is raising more questions on the sincerity of those running the show at the moment.

  17. Boyd Kilembey says:

    Lero waona kuti govt is silly? Why did you not see this when your mum was distributting gotsi, selling the jet, and hailing Mphwiyo as the most educated and intelligent Director in the whole civil service?

  18. Che Wanimiliyoni says:

    Anybody refusing there’s rampant corruption almost in all sectors of this country and anybody who denies that is living in fantasy world and is helping to kill Malawi economilly. Can anybody or any firm win a contract with govt or private firm without palm-oiling senior officials? It starts with senior officials demanding from succeful bidders 10% of the contract sum (not profit mind) before official award then you have to palm-oil all those involved in cheque preparation for you to receive your payment in time. No wonder many contracts in this country dont reach practical completion in time and sum originally stipulated.

  19. Alole says:

    Shame to thoe pipo whotkeep saying amai amai 577b izi kusowa onena chifukwa ili mu DPP. Shame on u. Keep up Roy.

BRAVO ROY KACHALE. ASAKUOPHYESE AI. ULULA MOMWE UNKABELA NDALAMA NDI AMAI AKO KUTI ENA ASAZABENSO.

  21. Brazilian Wax says:

    Others faults seem double size and that enables us to criticize others. Roy, much as I am not a DPP apologist, do you have any higher moral ground to lecture DPP on cashgate? PP is equally a culprit as far as cashgate is concerned. It sounds like someone from Soddom and Gomorrah preaching purity.

  22. Clementine says:

    You’re now talking but your mum is the main culprit for this shameful that’s why she is on run but DPP will put things in order.
