Dausi’s verbose annoys  Malawi Parliament: Khumbo says stop bombastic words

Opposition Members of Parliament (MPs) on Tuesday stopped Minister of Information Nicholas Dausi from answering a question asked by MP for Mulanje Bale to his ministry because of his long-winded style of answers.

Dausi: Uses pretentious expressions

The Mulanje Bale legislator Victor Musowa was asking the minister to negotiate with a Mozambican mobile internet provider, Vodacom to start working in the country especially on his area.

“Madam deputy speaker, madam, TNM and Airtel have failed people of Mulanje Bale. Through you madam, I am asking the minister of information to therefore allow the Mozambican company, Vodacom which its internet because its internet is already there,” said Musowa.

Answering the question, Dausi gave a  statement full of technical and bombastic words.

The development made the opposition side to start shouting at the minister to the extent that the first deputy speaker  Esther Mcheka Chilenje failed to protect him.

Some members from government side also failed to  keep their mouth sealed.

MP for Mzimba south west Khumbo Kachali (former State vice president)  said the minister should be taught how to respond to questions in Parliament.

“The answer that the minister is providing a ministerial statement that is not suitable to this House or question raised by Mulanje Bale legislature but to a Parliamentary committee of his ministry. Therefore the minister should not waste our time with his long statement,” said Kachali.

Mulanje Bale MP also said “my question has not been answered but this is a very big problem.”

The first deputy speaker asked the minister to sit down and come up with a direct and brief response.

Dausi then assured people of Mulanje Bale constituency in a brief response that his ministry will inform the Malawi Communication Regularly Authority (MACRA) to deal with their problem soon.

Pa Zimbabwepa comrade Mugabe amatafunanso Queen’s language. Nayenso mkulu pa P Joni Zuma amadya chizungu ngati analowa mtchalichi…si izi zathuzi…hehehedeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


Leave CIA trained Dausi alone.


I suggest Mr. Dausi did not learn business communication management at the University level hence doesn’t know anything about the principles of effective communication. This tells why Mr Dausi is a blind window pane communicator.

Inutu mzangoti mzanu Dausi ma bomba not knowing dementia has started working on his pea brained head…he needs to see a psychatriac. Koma ziliko pa Malawi.

This is a public communication challenge of our time. Hon. Dausi need to be delivered on communication demons. Our parliament is full of retired people who until now are not retired. I pray that no one shuld collapse in parliament. Hon Dausi, please learn to speak simple English. Continuation with that kind of communication, one can suggest two things: Either you went to school but school did not go through you or you were not educated in “Malawi”


Yap its high tym he should stop hz bombastic worst cz ain’t helping anymore

In fact, Dausi speaks broken bombastic English. He also breaks English grammar rules in each and every sentence.

This guy is an example of the quality of ministers we have in government. No wonder there’s failure in everything – education system at all levels, agriculture, health system, tourism, road safety & only they and some chiefs can’t see it. This gives perception of a failed state.

Indeed,our leaders are ashaming.One can not complain about one using the word VERBOSE which simply means: talkative,garrulous,fluent and loquacious.Khumbo,how far did you go with your education to foolishly complain about the simple word VERBOSE? What a shame? That’s why we can not develop Malawi under such leadership.CRY OUR MAGNIFICENT MOTHERLAND MALAWI!!!!!!!
