PP calls for Goodall resignation: Malawi Finance Ministers accused of ‘lying’

The opposition Peoples Party (PP) has demanded Minister of Finance Goodall Gondwe to resign for misleading the nation on recent salary hike for President, Parliamentarians and cabinet ministers.

Gondwe:Told to step down

Over the weekend Gondwe and other government agents were forced to clarify and justify the pay hike amid economic crisis, and President Peter Mutharika and his vice, Saulos Chilima’s decision to defer their pay rise.

PP Publicity Secretary Ken Msonda told Nyasa Times Gondwe has failed nation and the President for claiming that former president Joyce Banda was the one who proposed the salary hikes.

“We are calling for the immediate resignation of Hon Goodall Gondwe for misleading the nation that the recent DPP salary hikes for State President, his Vice President, Ministers and Members of Parliament was proposed by Dr. Joyce Banda during the Peoples Party led administration,” said Msonda.

Msonda added: “We are extremely disappointed that the man we highly respected has turned into such a liar. From these lies which Hon Goodall Gondwe is saying it is clear that he is the one misleading the State President.”

He said it was not true that Banda ever discussed salary increments for the State President, Vice President, Ministers and Members of Parliament.

His argument hinges on what Banda and her vice Khumbo Kachale made while in power by donating 30% of their salary to charity.

Msonda said  Gondwe is now challenging that government is collecting more money to pay the increased salaries then there should be pay hike to all other government institutions demanding salary adjustments; ACB, Judicially, Teachers, the University Support Staff and Students as well as the Healthy sector.

“Otherwise if government is not able to pay these people,  we call upon the immediate resignation of Hon Goodall Gondwe,” added Msonda.

According to Msonda, Gondwe must step down because under his administration Malawi economy is failing to tick.

“He is failing to find solutions to a litany of strikes currently underway at the judiciary, University of Malawi and ACB. He must resign and stop peddling lies about Joyce Banda,” he told Nyasa Times.

On Monday, Gondwe re-iterated that tough economic tides had forced Mutharika not to affect the hike saying that, after all, the hike was the former government’s master plan.

    salary increaments have been effected to narrow the gap between cival servants and the other statuary bodies. Do not accuse anyone including Gondwe. Inu a pp simumaonjezera ma civil servants koma cashgate go to hell simudzalowanso mboma.
    The rise in civil service ranged from 80% down and the president and his vice and ministers are in that category of civil servants. Why are you only accusing innocent people. Its good that the president and his vice have freezed their hike lets see the others do the same osamangopita kwa tolankhani mkumatinamiza kuti inu ndiye zenizeni. MCP simunasinthe inu munthu kukhala chairman wa area 1979 mpaka lero pitani pa nathenje izi zilipo.

    Izi ndiye zanyanya,do you want to me that up to now we don’t have well educated guys who can run that position? Come on my people the old pepper doesn’t sound. Stop of cheating us by posting old ones. I started hearing about Gongwe while I was young running such kind of positions, am now 36 still Gongwe. That’s why our country is not changing.

      Imwe a Goodal Gondwe, fumanipo lekani new blood with new thinking abwerepo apo. Anthu akale ngati inu ndamene mukuononga dziko lathu la Malawi with your old old ideas. What you should know is that you are leaving intelligent people jobless, the people who if used Malawi would have been somewhere by now. You want corrupt people and hate straight forward people who can handle issues without corruption. Please resign and let Malawi be peaceful again without you.

    Gogo Goodall Gondwe blundered but that will not give the chance to spit the Venom because it was equally useless as Goodall in old age.Pitala and Goodall both needs to go to retirement.

  14. Odala Tili Odala says:

    But does it make sense even to a child that a former president can be the one to propose salary increments for the incumbent? Stupid people why can u just see things out of party glasses?

  22. victim Chamkhuni Lwazazi says:

    The Minister of Finance should not envelop himself into pointless, baseless excuses. I wish he commented on NACgate, on backgrounds of civil servant, i
    ncluding judiciary, university ACB, and other government institutional demands for salary hike. If not the minister should spend more time devising
    mechanisms to solve the nation’s financial crisis. He said the budget on salary raises were passed in the parliament, when and which parliament?
    He is demonstrating the state of confusion he and his boss are in. Let’s pray for them.

  23. Wakwithu says:

    Gondwe is past his prime and therefore he should indeed resign forthwith:

  24. Zoona pp.DPP NDI MBAVA.ACHOKEDI AMENEYO.

  30. choncho says:

    Zoonadi a GoodAll akalamba Akapume. He is misleading the nation about harmonisation when there is no such law and he claims ACB is the highest paid in public service pomwe alipo olipidwa bwino more than ACB. He needs to go before he messes up more things. Happy retirement

  34. Penu says says:

    DPP IS THE GOVERNMENT OF THIEVES.MUTHARIKA BOMA YAMUNIKA BASI .LETS TALK OF DEVELOPMENT NOT SALARY HJKES .ZOPUSA BASI ZITSIRU ZA ANTHU

  35. Atupele Keba says:

    #28 you make an interesting point about the reference to the previous government. Malawi has a Presidential system of Government not Parliamntary accordingly, the concept of a ruling party does not exist in Malawi despite repeated references to this or that ruling party. So PP was not a ruling party and dd not form the previous government. Joyce Banda was the head of the executive and therefore any refences to the previious government includes President Joyce Banda.

  36. The Truthful One from the West says:

    An incompetent, blundering Minister of Finance. A spent force. This old man who prepared a half baked budget cannot transform the economy. He has made life very difficult for ordinary Malawians. This is the man who reduced corporate tax by 3% and increased fees and charges by over 300%. He should resign or be fired.

  37. Alfred Munduwabo says:

    I have my first born baby child who is four months old now , this baby when she sees the picture of Peter on the MBC TV , she cries , it means things are not well in Malawi.
    WATCH OUT MALAWIANS.

  38. Zanga Phee says:

    PP is a party in malawi where dpp is taking agendas to run the country as evidenced by the minister of finance.

  39. Robert says:

    Kodi PP ndi chipaninso? Mmalawi muno?

  40. Eagles Eye says:

    So these guys are continuing with PP policies ? Something is wrong somewhere, i think issues to do with salaries are discussed in parliament? MPs say the never discusses salaries. The Hon finance Minister needs to guard his tongue otherwise tanamizidwa kokwana and what we want are solutions to our problems. Ngati zakukanikani just step aside ena atilamulire. Mmesa munabera zisankho mmafuna kulamura? Ndilimenerotu dziko lilamureni.

    1. Eagles Eye says:

      ‘never discussed not discusses ‘

  41. Baba wa Boyi says:

    How difficult is it to prove Government plans.
    Did Gondwe say Joyce Banda or PP, are Joyce Banda and PP one and the same? If they are then PP is property of Joyce Banda and had no business being a rulling party

    1. Basikolo says:

      @ Eagles Eye

      Inu mwati mukonze anzanu chizungu basi kuti muoneka kuti ndinu odziwa. That’s the problem with us borrowers of the queen’s mother tongue. This forum is a platform for exchanging and sharing ideas and discussing issues and matters pertaining to this only country we love to call our home and not a forum for lecturing to one another on how we should go about using the queens language, which squarely put, is a borrowed language.

  42. Charles says:

    Ka PP nso nkachani? boma ya mbuli zokhazokha mumkayenda ndi ma cheque osainasaina ma boaders kumapangira anhu clear magalimoto , mukuona ngati udzabweranso, iwalani zimenezo munationetsa nyansi zanu basi , pano no aid because of you ,real people are comfessing like the Lutepo , that will be remembered by Malawi nation for his conduct he has accepted to still the huge amount of money and give it to PP iweyo Nsonda galimoto umayendera yo inagudwa ndi ndalama zokuba zimene Lutepo anapereka mutamupatsa , kana, tukupanga expose tu iwe, ukanakhala wa mzeru ukanangokhala chete pozindikira kuti wabisala pa tsamba, kkkk msana ukuonekera

    1. Zagwa says:

      So there are clowns like you who believe cashgate was started by PP? Ask your Lutepo when he bought Naming’omba and Chloride Batteries!

    3. Alomwe Alomwe says:

      @ Charles

      Forget about PP and manage this country you fools. Aren’t you ashamed to be associated with a government that if failing and falling all over the place?. This is the worst government, presided by the worst president, that this country called Malawi has ever ever and ever had. Sorry government is what we have in Malawi now. As a Malawian I feel PP govt was much better than this cartoon of government.

  50. chakhalira says:

    If what I have read is true that a Gogo Goodall Gondwe said ” Salary hike of the President, Vice President and Ministers …………..was the master plan of JB and they are just implementing such….., then indeed the whole team must resign. Just recently, they talked very bad of JB’s policies. How then could they grab this one as good? In other words they can not work on their own or put in other words ” They have lost their heads.

    Then JB was a leader!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  51. Think Tank says:

    Problem with Gondwe is he has forgotten he is a yesterday-man. Whatever he says these days are disjointed rubbish. He dwells on blaming everything on the past. He might as well say it was PP who asked NAC to donate money to BEAM when they were in power!

  52. Peter Mathanyula Wakuba says:

    Pajatu DPP ikamati ndalama kulibe ndekuti akuluakuku akugawana ma 69 billion. Inu pamenepo akukudyetsani ma public lecture. Hhehehede! Ine kwanga ndikuseka mtima uli myaaaaa. Kubera ma vote anabera we know. Koma anyani enanu you really voted for him too. Tiyeni nazoni!!!!!

  60. John says:

    Told you long time ago that Godall is useless. The problem with Malawi politics is we like to recycle. Since Gondwe was great in 1570s we think he will be great till jesus’ coming. For crying out loud the guy made blunders during DPP Bingus time that cost the gvt about k6 billion in tenders. And do you still remember his explanation that satisfied the Malawi nation? “I had good intention for Malawi”. On that, we clapped hands. forgave him and gave him another ministerial post, of FINANCE! How crappy is that?

    1. oooooho/ says:

      very crappy!

  61. H Kamdidi says:

    Was Msonda a civil servant at OPC or Ministry of Finance to know about salary increament? I would have loved to hear from someone who was at these institution to urgue against Goodall’s assertion if this is not true, not Msonda

  62. kester Kaphaizi says:
