Malawiana,MPs get good incomes and therefore,they can easily buy these laptops if they are patriotic enough to their voters who are struggling to feed their families.We are seeing MPs buying cars that in other developing countries Ministers can not afford to own.We are loosing people in hospitals for lack of medicines and hospital workers are paid peanuts while they are working hard to seve the lives of our people,while these shameless and womaniser MPs, spend their salaries like drunken-soldiers.Use tax-payers’ funds diligently to meet people’s requirements.

Please give those laptops to schools not MPS. Thank you.

I Bet 99% of these people also have smart phones and yet they have google there too and they dont use it at all. We have civil servants in government office who legitimately cant do their work because they need this technology, visit the DC’s offices they are still using paper based records to conduct their day to day business.
