The Commission has powers to hire and fire management of the National Assembly and acts as parliament’s board.

Chaponda, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) member of parliament for Mulanje south west, led the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) last week in conducting an assets inspection tour at the Parliament Building and its infrastructure.

The aim of the inspection was to familiarise the PSC with the institution’s structures and assets.

During the tour, the PSC appreciated the condition of assets that Parliament Secretariat use as well as the environment in which  the members of staff operate in.

Chaponda described the inspection tour as productive as the Commission gained an insight of the infrastructure the institution is using.

The Chairperson pledged the Commission’s commitment to resolve the challenges that the institution is facing.

The exercise is in line with Parliament of Malawi’s Strategic Plan(2015-2020) objective four which seeks to ensure that the Parliament Building and its infrastructure operates effectively, meets the Parliament’s needs and is open and accessible to the people of Malawi.

The PSC comprises the following members:

Commissioner George Chaponda

Commissioner Richard Chimwendo Banda

Commissioner Chrispin Mphande

Commissioner John Chikalimba

That is why Atupele is running up and down. Chagwa from heaven chikwama for Atupele. These are like windfalls. Nankhumwa’s hopes have been dashed.

By now it is a well known fact that the learned George Thapatula Chaponda (JSD Yale ) was a victim of political mudslinging(A highly effective Weapon of Mass Destruction in political warfare). It is very Unfortunate that his ambition to plot number one was nipped right in the bud by his fellow ‘political fidus achates’. Remember zimamveka kuti it was him who reported to APM about the parallel cabinet that the MIM PhD scholar had set in place when it was rumored that something bad had happened to APM while attending UNGA meetings. Adding salt to the wounds of his… Read more »

Joyce Banda ordered the inquiry then it was found she had no part BUT DPP had been looting for years. President APM refuses to investigate his brother nor has Bingu’s estate repaid the Billions he stole.

VOTE THIS PRESIDENT OUT come June something
