Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Member of Parliament for Dedza North West, Alekeni Menyani was forced to make a point of order in parliament that opposition members were equally Malawians who pay tax like those in the corridors of ruling power.
Menyani stood for a point of order after ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) MP for Chitipa Central, Clement Mukumbwa, when he said President Peter Mutharika does not see where somebody is coming from when distributing development “even though they are Members of the opposition who are very vocal and sometimes very personal, he still develops their areas.”
The MCP legislature said it was out order for Mukumbwa to refer the opposition “as if we were alien to this country.”
He said: “We also pay taxes. Our children and sisters also pay taxes.”
Menyani added: “ We are Malawians and first and foremost, before you look at us as belonging to the opposition, look at us as fellow Malawians. “Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
