Chitipa MP hits at opposition for ‘unjustifiable’ attacks on govt

Chitipa Central legislator (DPP) Alinuswe ‘Fukumele’ Mukumbwa on Monday used about six minutes of the ten minutes allocated to him to comment on finance minister’s revised budget to hit at the opposition, saying they are always negative with government for nothing.

Mukumbwa repeatedly called the opposition rants “unjustifiable,” challenging further that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) was doing far much better.

“Mr Speaker, Sir, they [the opposition] always think the negative way. They want to look as if they are much better. But the thing is government is doing far much better, and there is nothing you can do,” said Mukumbwa.

He alleged that the “big opposition,” the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) “is trying to team up with small PP [Peoples Party]” to frustrate government but was quick to warn that it would not work.

“Change your strategies,” he said. “If this government were given to you to run you wouldn’t have been any better.

Mukumbwa’s outbursts invited a number of “point of orders” from Lilongwe Msodzi South, Zomba Malosa and Mchinji North West but Speaker Richard Msowoya turned down all.

“He [Mukumbwa] is not out of order because the honourable member is entitled to his opinion,” said Msowoya, before adjourning the house few minutes later.

The House started contributing on Minister Goodall Gondwe’s budget with opposition PP and MCP hailing government for right economic mechanisms to save Malawi’s ailing economy.
