I can’t be tamed — MP Kamlepo

Firebrand politician, Rumphi East MP Kamlepo Kalua (People’s Party-PP) has said he cannot be tamed from his ‘loose cannon’ style of checks and balances, saying his voice cannot be silenced.

Kalua: My voice cannot be silenced

Kalua: My voice cannot be silenced

Kalua, who is also Parliamentary Accounts Committee (PAC) vice chairman, queried Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament Dr Clement Chiwaya over remarks that the MP had been silent in the House because he has been “tamed.”

But Kalua protested, saying his voice cannot be silenced.

“I wanted to clear that because I cannot be tamed by anybody or anyone else; be it in the government or opposition.  Nobody can tame me.  I wanted to clear that,” said Kalua.

Chiwaya told Kalua that it was the Minister of Finance, Economic Planning and Development Goodall Gondwe who had noted that he has been tamed by him.

But Kalua said Gondwe did not say that he was tamed.

“He only mentioned Rumphi East and you went on to say that don’t worry today the Honourable Member for Rumphi East has been tamed. Therefore, I wanted you, because people are calling me that have I received something,” said Kalua.

Second Deputy Speaker asked the MP to assure those calling him that he not been bribed.

“Knowing you, if you had received something, you would have announced it on a forum and to the whole world.  We know that, you have done that before when you got billions. We know that,” Chiwaya said.

Kalua, one of the politicians who championed democracy in the country, has been vocal on grand corruption scandal and is demanding justice for seven rotten ministers he claims were fingered in the audit report.

In the high-level fraud, millions of dollars of public money were channelled into private accounts through companies that provided the government with bills, but no services.

T he forensic auditors of what was initially the K577 billion Cashgate—now reduced to K236 billion—say are disappointed that government did not curb the grand fraud 11 years after it was noted in 2005 under the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) watch.

In its report of a forensic audit of the government of Malawi covering the period January 2009 to December 2014, the auditors said that the 11-year inaction, especially in procurement mischief, lack of follow ups on red flags and poor cashbook reconciliation increase the risk of.

‘Drogba’, you dont ,understand what good Kamlepo is doing for the nation! If all our MPs were like him, this country would develop greatly. He is providing the required checks and balances to the government, unlike the majority of his colleagues who just sleep and fart in their seats in parliament even when they see things going wrong. Learn to analyse situations and appreciate the good work that other people do for the country.The independence of Malawi, multipartysim, freedom of speech, association, etc came about because of critical, outspoken and brave people like Kamlepo! Give him credit where due.

Who is holding the audit report and why? If it’s the Government, why is it silent and watching? Universities are closed making the children of inorncent and poor Malawian who voted for them stay at home, not learning, and suffering, while their children are leaning outside the country, using inoncent tax payers money and poor suffering Malawians. Yet they preach peace and unity among Malawians. God ( Allah) is watching you how you treat and toucher his people.
