MP Kanjira Banda to be burried on Tuesday: No business in Parliament

The office of the Speaker of the national assembly has announced that there will be no parliamentary deliberations on Tuesday 15th March, 2016 to give parliamentarians a chance to attend the burial ceremony of  Mchinji West member of Parliament (MP) Billy Kanjira Banda (Malawi Congress Party-MCP) died Sunday after he collapsed at St Francis Catholic Church in Lilongwe’s Area 25.

The announcement was made in the national assembly in the afternoon of Monday 14th March, 2016.

According to the Speaker, Richard Msowoya, the burial will take place at the deceased home village Chalenga in the Area of Traditional Authority Simphasi in Mchinji District.

Ironically, Kanjira Banda was thrown out of Parliament on Friday after a heated exchange with First Deputy Speaker Esther Mcheka Chilenje who was chairing the Committee of Supply on the Mid-year Budget review.

In his contribution to an allocation under the Democracy Consolidation Programme through the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC), the MP alleged that some Cabinet ministers would personally benefit in millions of kwacha from such allocations.

When challenged to bring evidence, Kanjira Banda said he would do so. Mcheka Chilenje then asked him to return to the chamber this afternoon with evidence.

Prior to kicking him out, Mcheka Chilenje accused the MP of being personal. She advised the legislator that his emotional outburst was not good for his health.

Meanwhile, condolence message are still pouring in from different politicians from different political parties describing him as a courageous man who fought hard to transform the lives of people from
his constituency and the nation at large.

Kanjira Banda was elected MP in the May 20 2014 Tripartite Elections.
