We’re not aliens, we’re Malawians – Opposition MP makes a point of order

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:  Makes his point of order

Menyani: Makes his point of order

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. “

    There is very serious political obsession in Malawi. So much so that an MP becomes a fool of the political party president. Why should Mkumbwa still tout the president as the DPP president this far of the year when the president should be for the Malawi Nation and be that way. If Chitipa is in Malawi it should be treated in the same way as Thyolo and any other place in Malawi. Development should be based on National Policy NOT Regional or Party Policy.

    It is NOT a favour to develop Chitipa!!!!!!!! I think some MPs are useless!

    We fukumela Mkumbwa utukoshite soni twebinako baku Chitipa.Uyobeghe ifitu fya mahala.This low life Fukumera do not represent all the people from chitipa but that is his distorted view at looking of things.He is just a mere contractor erecting some sub standard structures in Chitipa.What a Dpp bootlicker.

    Mkumbwa mbuchindele uwu mkuchita. You are are one of the stupid politicians in the north. We hate you.

  4. jabiece says:

    Mr Menyai u touched my heart, regardless the region u come from we r malawians and we all deserve the better service frm our goverment. I wish all ppl cld be like u Sir malawi cld have a better place to live. Atumbuka that, alomwe that, achewa that, it won’t help us nothing we r all malawians. This munkhumbwa mp I don’t what was he thinking it seems he doesn’t have a sense of human at all like others here who r hallasing other just bcause they were born to a good region, choosing others like anmals lol.

  5. MABVUTO says:

    Gentlemen, I feel aggrieved when I hear and read the sentiments uttered by Hon Mkumbwa, as a bonafide son of Cp ,I really feel ashamed for a person of his caribber to stoop so low and be praising DPP when in actual sense we children of CP are not seeing any development agendas in this budget for 2015/16 f/yr.

    Be elected as a member of parliament does not mean giving praises where they are not due as is the case. This party doesn’t like us at all not how far we may support it so long we are northerners nothing good is there for us .Thumbs up Kamlepo for critically taking note of the deliberate omissions that are in this budget its a cause for concern for us northerners we need to stand up and find a way forward for this not to continue.We really feel ashamed when the purse is with us ( Goodall) but still we can not see and amend such a drastic ommision.No wonder Nyalonje is at the helm as Hon For Mzimba North.What hon Mkumbwa has said needs people of Chitipa to discipline him and he has to apologise.Besides the ommisions quota system is biting us ,public appointments etc.why say that??

  6. wamuchalo says:

    Do you know the meaning Mkumbwa? is idiot. take note ‘kutukwanisa anthu osalakwa.

  7. BigMan says:

    It is a FACT that Bingu and the DPP are the ones who clearly started sharing development across all regions. Developments such as Silos, Universities, etc.. go where they are needed, not where there is more political party supporters.

    You can deny it all you want.

  8. Aferazao says:

    Can all the educated people from Chitipa do me a favour. Take this Mukumbwa buffoon back to Class 1 so that he can learn to think rationally, and stop to think like an idiot, though he seems to one.

  9. mwahana says:

    Mkumbwa still living in the past. Even after walking by foot all the way from Chitipa to Rumphi-Livingstonia, Karonga-Chaminade the thinking and reasoning is still primitive!!! sha!

  10. wamwaka says:

    The MP For the semi district of CP must be a fool. What development is he talking about? CP No market, no bus dept, ma bus amagona mphanda wa Beer Hall and he calls that development. Shame. No water at the boma. Kumamwa madzi a muzithapwi when chitipa is endowed with alot of natural waters. No pipes It is really bad.

  11. ALOMWE says:

    Iwe wakuchitipa akupasa ndalama zilinga mbuzi zakozi, chifukwa cha msewu wokhawo.

  12. mtumbuka1 says:

    Mr. chitipa mp, tell your president some of us do not recognize him as the president of this country so both you and him can f..ck off!!!

  13. Nachipanti says:

    Choncho nkumafuna federalism with such lame thinking inu atumbukanu?

  14. Charombanthu says:

    Well done Menyani MP for educating the idiot MP who always thinks in party colour lines. The president is the president for Malawi and not for DPP. Keep on the good work. Empty tins in the house will be exposed. Brilliant.

  15. Callistara wa Chimombo Mathanyula says:

    Northerners are idiots first class. Why voting for these thieves?

  16. Alfred Kapeleta says:

    This is a very good point from Honourable Menyani. We are, first and foremost, GOD’s children, created in His image; then we are Malawians. Everything else – our parties, regions, religions – are just flowers. Development projects must, therefore, benefit all Malawians.

  17. We don’t want MPs who are demagogues like Mukumbwa. Can he point out any development by Peter Muthalika who is a sojourner? Malawians are not serious minded. Northerners get brainwashed with power. Those in the ruling clique have always betrayed the region. They remain silent even when their children are being victimized through the quota system of education. The northern region must wake up and fight social injustice.

  18. Samuel Lwara says:

    DPP MPs, watch out!, you are only putting on shirts and your bottoms need to wear pants. Otherwise you have a lot to do after this parliament sitting and your friend in need is the same opposition that you rubbishing now. You need to re- strategize your working plan that should include opposition members and the elite society.

  19. Joel says:

    A Mukumbwa, there is no development in Chitipa. Stupit Bootlicker!

  20. Nde ku Malawi kumeneko,busy kunyozana mmalo motukula dziko,kadzikoko ndkakang’ono koma kakukanika kupita patsogolo,shame on!

  21. Usovenge says:

    A MCP bwinotu chaka chino muphulika ndi mastiress monga government in waiting or president in waiting. Maloto basi. Even if the country is to recognise MCP as such, would you be happy with that unless it is waiting with specific period of time. What about if that is indefinitely.Ndi amenyani womwe.

  22. Malawiana says:

    Thats it Menyani. You have make the point clear, louder and concise. The Africana crew is proud of you.

  29. Bwengu says:

    Mwachita makola sibweni kumupharira nganya uyu, wajulika kweni. We are all Malawians as well as tax payers so we are entitled to development despite being represented by an opposition member of parliament.

  30. mahopu says:

    Iyi nintchewe yeneko yamchila lende that we have raised in northern region. Why on earth mkumbwa, can’t u foresee the ship u are boarding is sailing towards the wreck? We know the sblings from North,they back up & say yes where it’s necessary. We are not against dpp here but the current governance is incompetent & poor. Zoona professor kuposedwa kulamulira ziko ndi Bakili, Joice Banda & u still say fyefyefye….u are personal a opposition! Goodal wakula, his brains are not the same like that of 2005. U think why did we vote for him in our costituency? We foresaw that he neetto rest as he is old. If on a constituency level he couldn’t be trasted, what made dpp govt to trust him with the whole countries budget? That’s why it’s a rubishrubbish type of govt. All dpp mp’s can’t u see that this guy is killing ur political career? Wait & see.

  31. Mr Dambwe says:

    Hahahaha inunso ndi amalawi kodi?

  32. White Rabbit says:

    Genocide! That is what dpp is after. To eradicate all Malawians so that mugabes people can take over completely.
    Once you understand that then you will know why dpp does not care and what they want.
    Only once they have eradicated all Malawians will they be happy.
    Don’t be such sissies…it’s a war…genocide! Why would you want to let your children die from these thugs??!!
