Mwenifumbo calls MPs to shoulder burden of economic hardship

Member of Parliament for Karonga Central Frank Mwenifumbo on Friday told Parliament that the economic hardships the country is facing need a collective response.

Mwenefumbo: Let's be fair

Mwenefumbo: Let’s be fair

Mwenifumbo said it was unfair to heap all the blame squarely on government for the country’s economic challenges arguing it was not government’s wish for the country to be in such mess.

He was commenting on the 2015 to 2016 midyear budget statement presented in parliament last week by Finance and Economic Planning Minister Goodall Gondwe.

“The economic hardship the country is currently facing are not government’s wish, it is due to various factors such as the floods that affected some parts of the country, the dry spell that the country experienced and the cutting of donor aid in terms of budgetary support amongst others. The blame should not be with the Ministry of Finance or Government alone, it’s not fair at all,” said Mwenifumbo.

He challenged MPs to come up with suggestions or solutions to the economic hardships the country is facing other than concentrating on finger-pointing.

If the whole Parliament had the wisdom expressed by the Honourable Mwenifumbo, we would have said Malawi is blessed. Malawi needs collective responsibility and actions to solve a weird economic problem. Its during such challenging period when we would have seen the opposition demonstrating that they can provide the solutions the Malawians are facing. Am afraid to say that at the rate our parliament is transacting business, it may take us up to the year 2700 for Malawi to develop. Am personally not impressed with the performance of the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources. We needed to see… Read more »

No government of national Unity apa. MCP ndi PP simunakhulupilirebe kuti munaluza. Kungofuna kulowera pawindow nthawi zonse bwanji? Tayembekezani 2019 mudzachite campaign yanu. Nanga wamandasi uja bwanji simudamuuze kuti apange GNU? Inu mukuiona ngati mavuto a njalawa saatha? pakali pano ufa wa Zambia wotchipa uli mbweembwewmbwee! Chimanga dowe enafe tachiyamba kale. Mu admarc chimanga mbweembweembwee ndiye mukuti chiyani? Peter adanenadi zoona kuti inu a MCP ndi PP ndiye ndi amene muli ndi problems. Moti you don’t see all these efforts?


This is what we call bootlicking. All gibberish Frank. What is your solution then? You’re empty headed and want position from govt. I would have appreciated your comment if you had suggested one single solution but knowing you dunderhead you have none. Time nazo Iri DPP unless you change your name to Frank Mwanakhu may be they will give you something. I have spoken.

Everybody understands that cash gate, withholding of aid, drought and floods all have combined to create the economic hardship. But what people are asking is what plans has govt put in place to address the issues. When the budgetary situation is tight the last thing people expect is govt lavish spending on travel, buying new vehicles, failing to distribute maize, maintaining so many state houses, negotiating loans that do not help in solving the current shortages of necessities like medicines. The President and Ministers need to regularly explain to people programmes in place and their implementation to address the pressing… Read more »

Frank u have become more wiser than before, u learnt the hard way when mwalwanda snatched that seat from u koleswa mzala am happy with your contributions this time around, u look professional and mature GOD BLESS U my brother


I totally agree with Mwenefumbo, we need collective efforts. No individual group can on its own rescue this economic situation . The opposition thinks has brilliant solutions , I urge it to bring them forward for the benefits of all Malawians. Opposition should come up with constructive criticisms so that Malawians should appreciate .


Decisions are made by the government… Seeking solutions frm opposition that happens in Gvts of national unity. If it won’t b a Gvt of national unity then the Gvt should do what it promised during campaign… Otherwise if it has run out of ideas then they should pave way for those that can run the show….! We r in this economic mess because the Gvt dodges to bring out culprits of Cashgate hence the donors walked away


Politics aside Frank is intelligent.Kaya ndi mpando apatsidwe basi, ine nilibe problem.

The ship (Malawi) is sinking nose down. The only solution according to request is DPP should surrender and govt of national unity should take over. Or else…………
All the facts bubbled are far from truth. Only one is correct. . .”NO DONORS”
