PP MPs stage walk out of Malawi Parliament in protest

Seven members of parliament from Malawi’s second opposition party, the People’s Party (PP), Thursday walked out of the house in protest over decision by second deputy speaker Clement Chiwaya’s decision to boot out its outspoken Mzimba Hora MP, Christopher Mzomera Ngwira.

Pandemonium broke out in Lilongwe, the seat of parliament, when Minister of Education Emmanuel Fabiano was giving information on selection of students to secondary school.

The Minister indicted that about 40 percent of students in the North Malawi have been selected to schools.

However, Mzomera Ngwira stood up to challenge the Minister, saying the figures were not true.

North Malawi has been accusing the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) for rolling education genocide for the region.

Ngwira vehemently rejected the figures that Minister of Education was presenting.

But deputy speaker gagged Ngwira and told him to take his seat and not  to contribute.

Ngwira kept standing and refused to sit.

When the deputy speaker insisted that Ngwira could not speak, PP MPs gave s shouting support to Ngwira.

Chiwaya ordered Ngwira out of parliament an asked the Sergeant-at-arms o evict the Mzimba Hora member.

Then seven members of PP walked out in disgust over the deputy speaker’s conduct.

Chiwaya said Ngwira has been suspended for two days.

PP parliamentary chief whip Ralph Jooma pleaded with the deputy speaker to “pardon” Ngwira.

Meanwhile, Chiwaya asked the Minister of Education to come up with ministerial statement.

    We are all Malawians. Why the bickering like small kids.Federalism doesnot mean that The North will be a sovereign country. Development seems to be the main issue that the north is crying foul.

    fack you all how comment without thinking. chamba amadya amako think when you writte here northern is a blesed land

    We’ve seen ur problems and soon we will have it solved.

  4. United Party says:

    Malawians from the Centre and South are quick to label Northerners tribalistic or regionalistic. I have this to say. If you feel jealousy because someone not from your home, or tribe or region is doing well, know that it is you who is tribalistic or nepotistic or regionalistic. If we are one not divided along tribal or regional lines, why would it matter if more students are coming from one region? Why should we introduce quota to right an otherwise correct system for people who believe in oneness? It is because we ourselves are tribalistic and would want the best for people of our tribe. The statement by late Bingu that we have more people in senior positions in the civil service from Karonga and Chitipa alone than the whole of Southern Region exposed how tribalistic he was. Why should it matter if these people are delivering and we are one? The young Munthalika is just continuing where big bro stopped. For the Centre, we all know what happened during Kamuzu rule despite MCP being founded by a great son of the North. It would be interesting to know how people from the Centre or South would have felt if it were teachers from the South or Central that were expelled during MCP reign. Don’t be hypocrites. Malawi has always been divided and will continue that way as long as the primary reason for adopting quota is not to have more people from other regions accessing quality education, but to have less people from the North doing that.

    When Europeans were partitioning Africa, we had no say. If that was the case I think Malawi would not have been as it is today. Tribes were imposed on other tribes. People with different cultures without their input were grouped together to form a country. Are we surprised that there are many wars in Africa that in Europe? Then came the federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. No where have I read that there was a referendum by both pro (the colonialists) and anti groups (the Africans/Malawians) to find out what the people wanted. As long as people are being grouped against their wishes, divisions will always exist.

  5. tk says:

    The government is not solving anything with its quota system. Many parents from the north are sacrificing the little money they have to send their children outside the country where the quality of education fortunately is very high. In 10 years to come, this country will be shocked with the calibre of educated people that the country will have from the northern region. You will not compare them with the graduates from the other regions as these are intelligent students on top of their high IQ will have high quality education. Quota will only impact a few poor northerners. The determination of the northerners on education will never fade and i pray that people who comment ill about the northerners over the quota system should atleast look at this. The more you pull someone down, the more that person being pulled down become resilient to soldier on. Life is a struggle and without it, noone will feel happy when he or her achieves success. Look at the number of students who are weeded from college and you note that many are not the north.

  10. Kanyimbi says:

    Inu Ngwira musamamumvere ndi wavimbuza. He is saying he wants to fight for equal share of resources but he doesn’t want quota system.

    1. Kenkkk says:

      Some of you seem to be ignorant about the meaning of quota, where it is appropriate to apply and where it is not appropriate to apply quota. Education is one area where you can’t apply quota because it is based on academic performance or exams not population or where someone comes from.

      Even proportionality can’t be applied in academic environment because exams sort out people. Those under-achievers can be helped but not at the expense of bright students. After all we are creating a workforce for malawi, not for the regions. The same tumbukas you are insulting are working everywhere in Malawi for the good of Malawi.

      1. Bozozo says:

        Quota can apply in the education sector. Since time immemorial Malawi has always applied a quota system to promote girls education. It may be urgued that the system disadvantages boys who score higher than girls but are denied places in favour of girls. In South Africa they have black empowerment policy. This is at the expense of some equally deserving whites. In America similar policies were adopted to address the plight of blacks through affirmative policy.

        In Nigeria education is free in the Muslim dominated North where the dreaded Boko haram is attacking schools. This pilocy which the Christian dominated South can urgue that is not far, is meant to encourage Muslims to go to school. Is there anything wrong to give a fair chance to Muslims in this country to get university education.

        In some countries like Tanzania they practice price discrimination. For instance, the further you go from dar es salaam the higher the price of fuel. Probably this is justified by the cost of transportation. What is means is that in Malawi the people of Chitipa play the same pump price as those nearer the source due to i belt subsidy.

        Some policies are adopted to address imbalances and promote national unity. Winner takes all policy or pure and what I would call unchecked capitalistic orientation can be disastrous.

        1. Kenkkk says:

          I never said you should not help those that are behind. But the help should not be at the expense of those who have excelled in academic exams.

          You talk about Nigeria Muslims, yes they get help but nobody with good grades in the south of the country is denied education. Yes we should help but we should not punish high achievers by denying them education. Yes we should help Muslims in mangochi and girls but not at the expense of high academic achievers. The rest of Malawi should be on equal footing through academic exams, those who work hard will achieve high grades.

          In USA affirmative action is mainly on jobs, not much on education but it only applies to those blacks who have made the grade but were being denied access to better jobs or univs because of their background. If you don’t make the grade you are not allowed.

          So you see the difference with our stupid quota system? Our quota system is actually depriving Malawi of some of its brightest students and future scientists or professionals. No country in the world does that to its citizens or students. But you people can’t see any sense on what we talk about!!!

    1. Kanyimbi says:

      We will also revenge by chasing your children from schools in the other regions. Do you think we can be idle while you are doing fucking things?

  15. Dracula says:

    These students write the same exams under the same conditions from the same background of poverty etc. Student A must score 80% pass mark to be selected to UNIMA while B is selected at 55% pass mark. Arfimative Action in SA/USA etc is applied to the previously disadvantaged eg blacks previously oppressed by whites. What other reason apart from discrimination is there for having different goal posts for these students?

  16. Optic Computer says:

    If I am not wrong, Bingu said the North contributes 20% to the nation’s GDP. But from the same statistics, he also said the North’s populations is 12% that of the nation. That means, the north cannot be left alone because of its per capita income (GDP divided by population). It will be blatant discrimination if the president gives more government resources to the South as is the case. Stadium analanditsa ndi amayi, pano akuti cancer hospital ipitenso ku BT.

  17. Zabweka says:

    If Mzomera is wrong kapena kuti akusankha mtundu, Can u tell me which xul in the centre or the south where there are students all selected from the north? Bcoz his argument is Nkhatabay is having pupils all from the centre and south kulibeko wa ku north why? so it shows ena apa mukuyankhula zosamveka. you seem not to know wat is on the ground. pali kuyzikonda apa? If yes kuzikonda kotani?

    1. Kanyimbi says:

      When selecting students, there are representatives from the Education division offices so how did these representatives just sat idle and watch students from other division being selected into their division? Were DPP officials available at the selection meetings?

      1. Kenkkk says:

        DPP Just wants to infuriate JB and her husband. Adding salt to the wound by not selecting a single nkhatabay or north student to nkhatabay sec school!!! Unbelievable!!!

  18. Angoni 2014 says:

    The issue here is about equitable access to education and not tribalism. Those that write hate speeches are brainless idiots and will not comment on their opinions coz there are beyond contempt. Lets discuss issues that will build a just Malawi for all.

    Dump people n dump comments like yours are quite enough reasons for the north to ask for independence, you calculation the population of malawi not students, check how many kids go to school on that 10% we contribute to the population of the country.

  28. chawanje says:

    you lazy northeners build more cdss’s in your region so that moere of your relatives are selected to secondary schools. do you rightly think that parents in Nsanje should build a cdss on self help basis and have northerners selected to it? No ways! the percentages you have indicated that communities in the centre and south are working hard to build cdss’s for THEIR children.
    YOU ARE BUSY CALLING MONEY FROM DONORS TO ENRICH YOURSELVES UNDER LIES THAT YOU ARE ADVANCING HUMAN RIGHTS. USE THOSE DONOR FUNDS TO BUILD MORE SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN YOUR NORTHERN REGION.
    THE DEAD NORTH IS THE PEOPLE NOT THE LAND. WORK UPO PLEASE!

  29. clement says:

    Gud decission from Hon Deputy Speaker, Dr Chiwaya. This guy Mzomera think is clever but its not and one day is one day. He is trying to buy popularity with cheap contributions.DPP is not MANEB and we will get tired of you Ngwira.

  30. bryan says:

    I wish I was owning a gun, the first victims were going to these Southerners coming to study @ Nkhata-bay secondary school. I mean it I was going to kill one by one, pray that I must not find any other way. Otherwise I will terrorize the xool. Foolish president.

  31. Zidura Ntengo Undigwere says:

    The second deputy speaker should have had MP come in and arrest these trouble makers. Here is hoping the MP’s that who walked out should not be allowed in until they apologize. Tiwone akadya kuti (and they should not get paid while they are out).
    They are lucky for democracy: HKB would have been fuming over these stunts. There would have been some dubious car accidents by now, around Lilongwe; accidents organized by JZU and co.!
    “Sulking” will soon become PP’s middle name! It started with their leader: way to go JB; you set a good example.

    Chi minisitala cheni chichi ni chindere chomene. Ni mtesi munthu yura. The real figures are as follows;

    North= 13.5%
    Centre= 21.3%
    South= 65.2%

    check with capital hill’s figures to prove him wrong and me right.

    Naked prejudice by DPP against North and Centre.

    1. CHIDYAONGA says:

      considering the north only makes 10% of malawi population.
      Then the north has had an additional 3% of students sent to secondary school,
      My be its the midland that should complain and not the north

      1. mmihavani says:

        Anthuwo alipo 10% but they want 50% of the places. Shame.

      2. Makito says:

        So Chidyaonga, why did the Minister lie? What merit is there to allocate spaces based on total population and not those who sat for PSLC exams? Northerners are in CDSSs. We will still triumph.

      3. Optic Computer says:

        10% is just an understatement to justify that northerners are few. Before Bingu died, basing of last disputed national census, the north had 12.5% population. The problem is not with the percentage, but the quota system. Has it given any advantages to some of the people from the centre who supported quota? Can we say 65.2% of the places should go to the south? Arthur is now building the south so that in future he can support the merit system after making sure that the south has benefited from many graduates, killing other regions. If the centre doesn’t wake up from its slumber, they regret this call they are now calling noise.

        1. Kenkkk says:

          And you people of the south make up 65% of malawi to deserve all those places?

      4. Kenkkk says:

        You keep on manipulating the populations of the regions to favour the south. Giving your selves more people!! I don’t think the north makes only 10% of the population. It is more than that!!!

    I still ask the government, why did you not select a single pupil from the north to begin form 1 at Nkhata-Bay Secondary School. Fo you want us to mobilize the youth and chase the guys. We can cause havoc. Why should our brothers and sons go to CDSS and yours occupy our homestead? Is there rareness? It will indeed take one mad person to organize the youth in Nkhata-bay and chase these impecures! Anganya, tiyeni nawu tiwakhwapi ankhungu yawa. Chakwamba tiwadikisi pa sukulu yidu.

    1. mmihavani says:

      Try to chase them like you did with moslems when Atcheya won muone mmene tikuthamangisireni ku Lilongwe. Try that and see. Simply because somebody is coming from Nkhotakota, Kasungu, Ntchisi etc you think he does not deserve a place at Nkhatabay. That’s the merit that you wanted. Now you want quota because merit has affected you. Foolish.

  45. rod says:

    if everything is to be judged in accordance with the prevailing wind of regionalism, tribalism then the path to development will be long and hard to achieve. Its unfortunate whether it be govt or opposition they are displaying a similar attitude. In all fairness, the ‘reverend’ is acting in an ‘unreverend’ way…its high time we view Malawi as one. If he thinks the figures arent true nowadays these things are transparent he simply shud come up with figures. Its a shame. I guess anything being done in blantyre will be seen as regionalism. As an academic myself, we knw how the cancer center can by being close to the medical xul yet it is now being seen as regionalism. Pathetic!

  46. Noworknopay says:

    No work no pay!!! secondly, these expensive cars are there because of being an MP. Now give up and will end up selling bonya in Mangochi !!!!!!

  47. Kenkkk says:

    Khwereliwa, you contradict yourself. Is education quota system not discriminatory? What is wrong with educTion based on merit as done in all countries In The world? You can help those being left behind but not at the expense of those who have achieved good grades on merit. Merit is always first!!!

    The deputy speaker is showing all his typical savage behavior. You can’t silence people, the more you do the more their voices are heard!! The more you enhance Mzomera’s popularity by trying to silence him.

    1. CHIDYAONGA says:

      Its done in America(USA)its called affirmative action
      Its done in South africa
      and many other countries

      1. Kenkkk says:

        You don’t know how affirmative action operates. It is done not at the expense of other people who have excelled on merit. Those who have passed on merit are never left, they all go. Nobody is disadvantaged. You can help struggling people but not at the expense of those who have made it on merit. To have good scientists or engineers, etc you don’t throw away those who have achieved academic excellency. What type of a country do we want Malawi to be? A country of under-achievers?

        Furthermore affirmative action only picks those blacks or less privileged people who have met the qualifications but were being excluded simply because of their colour. It doesn’t mean they pick any jack and Jill from the streets. They pick those who have the relevant qualifications but were being deliberately excluded. The criteria is that they must have the qualifications or academic excellence.

        The quota system in Malawi is completely unjust, it punishes academic excellence and rewards mediocrity, how are we going to compete internationally if we are not producing excellent students?

        1. God Hear Me says:

          When is merit a merit? by the way do you want to tell me that during merit system only students who scored best grades went to university, which university in Malawi and when was that?
          I have been to college and to university myself you can not cheat me.
          If at all merit was indeed merit then students could have been going to university based on perk order i.e. If UNIMA AND LUANR wants to enroll 1909 students then they could have been just asking for the list of names from maneb from 6 points up to where ever the number reaches 1909 thats merit my friend.

          The merit we have been seeing in Malawi is where atumbuka wokhawokha were making it to university. And this belief that atumbuka ndi anzeru is a total misbelief mmangokokerana inu sakudziwani ndani ine mtumbuka sanandiposepo mkalasi.

          Ifenso from other regions tachangamuka mumva kuwawa the problem is you started the bad behaviour yourself and now is backfiring you have started complaining.

          1. Kenkkk says:

            Go back to the 70s and 80s my brother. Academic excellence was based mostly on merit, getting good grades. No one with say 6-18 points was ever left behind. But they still also accommodated some whose academic excellence was weak, they also went to university as well. It not purely merit based but mostly merit based and never left someone who had excelled academically. Those behind were also helped as you rightly say that not all who went to unis went there on purely high academic achievement. That is the spirit but not at the expense of future Malawi scientists, etc!!!

            Why didn’t you cheat if you knew tumbukas are cheating with exams? Then why did many other tumbukas not excel in education if they were cheating? That is when your favorited arguments about cheating falls apart. Tumbukas just work harder in education. That is the only secret!!!

            Be objective my brother, I consider myself as no more intelligent than any other Malawian. It is a myth to say tumbukas consider themselves to be more intelligent than Others. And you know very well that is not the case.

    That’s why Chaponda said DPP needs no vote from north yet other northerners voted for it. Fabiano is also slowly becoming a useless and educated fool. No wonder that calls for federalism are coming up now. Which is fractional to the regime’s nepotistic way of governing this country. We shall see 2019

  51. kadamanja says:

    Point of order Mr STUPID deputy speaker, where did you get the figure? More fire Ngwira!
    Malawi has never experienced war, This is how we start war, believe me or not, It happened in Rwandwa and south Sudan, tengani ana anu mukawaphunzitse nokha. Why sending them to north shools?. School governing bodies for the north should just go for strike. If not, all students from the north in one class, and students from other regions in other classes and scavenge them with low standard of eduquation and will see if they will make it. Stupid APM and your cabinet. Ngwira, am 100% behinde you. More fire Ngwira!

    1. mmihavani says:

      Can we also do the same, sending all students from north who are in schools in centre and south back to the north? Mukufuna zichitike? Ana anutu samasowa; amakhala ma trad, ooneka anjala, opepera, mbwenumbwenu, kuyenda pa chigulu, kuda bii, asungwana ndiye nkhwangwa, mphuno zikuluzikulu. So its not difficult to identify them.

      1. kadamanja says:

        Atumizeni! ndizomwe tikufuna, nkhondo yikhalako, ngankhale zili nkhwanga koma they are intelligent, lol!

  52. Chonde Mulanje says:

    We need a war to cleanse the country. Nkhondo okuchedwa bwanji

  53. Khwereliwa says:

    They have been sent to Community Day secondary schools where there will be no secret conniving over national exams or where their intelligence will really be displayed(since it is said assumed all northern students are intelligent than students from south+central). Otherwise, I expect they’ve been selected to national secondary schools accross the country. I still long for that day when malawians in general and most specifically my distant relatives from the north shall stop thinking,acting,saying and aligning themselves on regional grounds, it just doesn’t work out in the malawian context. Regionalism+Tribalism only hurts us much than the benefits which is only a balooned self esteem and egocentricism as well as ethnocentricism. We have intermarriages and we settle elsewhere in preference of better lives not regional basis, now it lacks any sense or logic at all to thing tribally or regionally.

    1. Makito says:

      You are saying this because you dont have children with 10 points in your house not making it to UNIMA while 25-30 points students are happily waiting to join UNIMA, your child with great ambitions being sent to CDSS when you know he would have made it to one of the best schools if it was based on merit. You call that fair and is that your definition of Malawi as one?

  54. Nyondo says:

    Take them on, we are with you, and if you need people to come to your meeting on this, please publicise the dates and place. We will be there. This Lomwe government must go, and they must go now!

  55. Jamie says:

    I ask DPP to vehemently field and canvass for a strong candidate in Ngwira’s constituency in 2019. We dont enjoy his dramma. He should be delt with once and for all.

    1. Nyondo says:

      iwe no 3. Jamie, you say that because you do not know how strong politically Ngwira is. And he is not your representative, he represents his people. Shame on you.

  56. musu says:

    Thank God they have walked out of parliament by themselves. They’re all greedy. Let them not come back. And they should not get allowances too.

    And this guy who was claiming that figures are not true should provide us with real figures instead of just making noise in parliament.

    We have got better things to read other than these useless stories of losers.

  57. John says:

    40% huh? Which schools are they sent to because the ones in the Northenr region do not have them. Show where YOU sent them. Osamangonena za nkabudula apa, these are real lives of people at stake here, not just your bread and butter! Zamamina eti!
