Speaker sends stern warning to misbehaving MPs: Kaliati, Kabwila clash

Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya has warned misbehaving legislators that they face stiff punishment if they continued disrupting business in the House.

Msowoya did not name the culprits but this follows an incident on Friday when Minister of Gender, Children, Women Affairs and the Elderly Patricia Kaliati exchanged bitter unprintable words with Malawi Congress Party (MCP) spokesperson Jessie Kawila.

The incident nearly degenerated into chaos. The two party officials nearly fought in the House as some MPs jeered and cheered turning the House into a kindergarten playground for adults.

Msowoya said he would not hesitate to invoke relevant standing orders, rules of the House to mete out punishment to misbehaving legislators.

He said expectations from Malawians is very high therefore the House needed to conduct business with seriousness and dignity.

Most opposition members of parliament accuse Kaliati of unsolicited interjections during debate, she normally interjects while seated on her parliamentary seat.

Two weeks ago, a parliamentarian from Kasungu, in his contribution to President Peter Mutharika’s state of the nation address, said the public sector reforms would be useless if cabinet ministers, like Kaliati do not change their mind set by avoiding silly interjections when a member of parliament is on the floor.

irritated the government side in Parliament when she described the 25-minute State of the Nation Address (Sona) by President Peter Mutharika as a “tweet”.

A tweet is a post made on the Twitter online message service which has a restriction of 140 characters and nothing more.

In her response to the President’s address, Kabwila called the President’s speech “a shockingly short” like a Whatsapp message and trimmed down to an “empty” tweet that failed to satisfy Malawians.

“What they heard was what can be described as a Twitter message and at worst maybe a WhatsApp message not a State of the Nation Address,” she said.

Leader of the House Francis Kasaila accused Kabwila of making disparaging remarks against a Head of State.

MCP president Lazarus Chakwera who is also leader of opposition also described Mutharika’s SONA as “zero plan” speech.

  9. Digo says:

    Professionally, educationally, morally Kaliati must not talk when Jessie has talked. Educated people respect the hierarchy but thanks Kaliati is not educated. To understand the hierarchy. Vuto ndi ma constituency anu, mumangotumiza zimbayambaya zosaphunzira basi ku Parliament. Makamaka DPP/UDF kum’mwera uku, many MPs have basic educationunlike other parties. Timawanena a Chewa kuti ngosaphuzira but look at the cream sent to parliament! At least a first degree. Check the level of education for the funny &confused MPs. This mixture has failed Malawi altogether.

  22. Moyenda says:

    Standing Orders are already there, and they constitute sufficient “stern warning”.
    The Speaker should just act and quote the Standing Orders – not give empty warnings.

  28. wa ku Simba says:

    Koma iwe Kambwila-Kapasula: Akweni akukwapula koophya iwe. Akutibula. (Kabwila-KApasula: you can’t win a fight Akweni with Akweni Kaliati, politically, physically or what have you.)

    Frustrations are now beginning to show in public, since KK’s demotion as MCP spokesperson. And we knew the frustrations would show in public, sooner or later.

    It is misguided to keep pointing at the level of education, and relating it to behavior in parliament. Akweni Kaliati is an experienced politician, and “captain” in the DPP; when Kabwila-Kapasula is a rookie and a g i in MCP.

    Akweni put the bait (nyambo) on the hook, and cast it out there in the open waters. And, predictably, Kabwila-Kapasula quickly swallowed the whole thing! She should take time to learn politics. Maybe even learn from Akweni; and be more effective?
    Time for a course in anger management for Kabwila-Kapasula is NOW. MCP will be doing her and itself a favor by arranging counselling in this area. Asa!

    “Talkative people who wish to be loved are hated; when they desire to please they bore; when they think they are admired, they are laughed at. They injure their friends, benefit their enemies and ruin themselves.” – Plutarch (Greek Historian)

    Are you two guys surprised that your marital life is not admirable? With one in raging battles with teenies and the other having lonely nights? How come the rest of us are not! Or you think that men are stupid hence don’t read the scripture? Don’t cheat yourselves!

    “Is it not better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and ill-tempered wife.” – Proverbs 21:19
    “Is it not better to live in the corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife?” – Proverbs 29:9

    “Much talking is the cause of danger. Silence is the means to avoid misfortune. The talkative bird is shut up in a cage to sing and entertain people; while other birds without speech fly freely. The virtuous dog is always on the chain.” – Saskya Pandita

  52. Thitherward 'wendo says:

    Politicians should remember that they are put in Parliament to represent their constituents – to use their voices to speak on behalf of the voiceless. None of us wants our parliamentary ‘voice’ to be used to spread worthless vituperation.

    I wish there were a prize for people who come to understand the concept of ‘enough’ – loud enough – proud enough – rich enough – fair enough. When you have self-respect, you have enough.

    When you have no respect for others, why should you imagine that others will have respect for you? So much of what should be mature, goal-oriented debate is just ‘sound and fury, signifying nothing’.
