Opposition MP declares all Malawi ministers ‘thieves’: Fabiano says Lunguzi was big thief

Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya on Thursday had tough time controlling the House as Dedza east MP Juliana Lunguzi and Education,  Science and Technology minister Emmanuel Fabiano exchanged verbal tirades which went personal.

Juliana Lunguzi MP Dedza East : All cabinet ministers are thieves

Minister of Education Dr. Emmanuel Fabiano: Late Mac William Lunguzi was a big thief

This started after Lunguzi said all cabinet ministers were thieves.

This followed the government decision to stop debate on a report by a parliamentary inquiry on maizegate.

Lunguzi said there was need to investigate all the ministers after the former Agriculture minister George Chaponda was on Tuesday found with K166 million stashed in his residence.

However, this did not go down well with the cabinet ministers who asked Speaker to order Lunguzi withdraw the statement, to which the Dedza east MP obliged.

Nonetheless, Education minister Fabiano stood on a point of order and said the Dedza east legislator’s father, late Mac William Lunguzi, who was the Inspector General of police in the Malawi Congress Party one party state was a thief.

Fabiano said Lunguzi amassed a lot of wealth, to which the Dedza east MP enjoyed, through theft and crookedness.

Among other properties, Lunguzi owned Mulangeni Holiday Resort in Mangochi, a popular holiday resort in the 1990s.

The Dedza east MP said the government side in the House was in a crusade to demoralise her just because she speaks her mind.

Donors and other foreigners are laughing how Malawians handle government issues in parliament. This shows we are below knowledge of politics. All so called politicians in Malawi are not politicians but people who become politicians for their benefits. Most of them are retired and worked abroad then cone come to steal money from poor Malawians. As long as we allow them to come and steal when they retire we are going to see these stealing. They have nothing to loose but poor Malawians.

Fabiano is very very stupid. How dare you start castigating the young lady by mentioning her late father, someone who cannot defend himself. Are you busy stealing now because you know of so and so who stole from government coffers. This is very shameful and not expected to come from a minister.I am so disappointed with you.

She is stupid. She should go and ask her father in the grave how he stole police resources meant for cottage and Mtakataka. He was even using police labour. He led the police that was killing opponents of Kamuzu. Your dad’s actions brought a curse on you that’s why no man wants to marry you.
