Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Member of Parliament for Lilongwe Msozi South, Vitus Dzoole Mwale has said ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) backbenchers in parliament should undergo training to tame their tongues from uttering hate remarks.
Dzoole Mwale observed that DPP backbenchers are fond of making foul mouthed comment in parliament.
“Mr Speaker, Sir, I do not know, what is happening to DPP-led government? “ said Dzoole Mwale.
He noted that DPP backbenchers referred members on the opposition benches as “monkeys.”
Dzoole also pointed out that a DPP lawmaker from Thyolo, Mary Navicha refereed Rumphi West MP Jacqueline Kouwenhoven as “white lady”.
“What is happening to DPP? No, they need to have a special workshop these people.
“They need training, and should not just be left like that. They must undergo special training. No, this is too much,” said Dzoole Mwale.
Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya told the House that the unparliamentarily words were taken out of the Hansard – a parliamentary verbatim report publication.
Msowoya nonetheless condemned the foul remarks.
“It is so demeaning to talk of monkeys and mention any colour in this House. It is also demeaning in this House,” said Msowoya.
