DPP legislators want Mtambo to appear before parliamentary committees

Speaker of National Assembly  Catherine Gotani Hara is yet to make a final decision on a demand by Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) members of parliament who want Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) chairperson Timothy Mtambo to appear before parliamentary committees for reprimand.

HRDC leaders, Timothy Mtambo and Gift Trapence walked in Parliament’s public gallery

The DPP legislators want Mtambo to be reprimanded after he refused to apologise to the members of parliament for calling them childish.

Minister of Information Mark Botomani said Mtambo even insulted the Speaker.

“We are just waiting for a ruling from the Speaker when she completed her consultations,” he said.

But Mtambo said it was “childish” for the DPP legislators to walk out of the House on Tuesday because they had seen the HRDC officials in the public gallery.

He also said it was childish for the DPP legislators to call him and Gift Trapence “terrorists”.

DPP ndi mapwala agalu. Through youR mouthpiece, you called HRDC a terrorist organisation. Mtambo is true, the MPs are childish but it is because they want to please their master. Vuto la ndalama, mpakana noisy Kamlepo has been bought.

The ‘Flames’ of the early Malawi national football team used to boast of stalwart Young Chimodzi and the late Jack ‘Africa’ Chamangwana as exceptional pillars in defence, keeping the most talented strikers of opposing teams at bay and trembling. It looks like, if you allow the analogy, that the Malawi Human Rights Defenders Coalition team has found in Mtambo and Trapence a pair of human rights defenders that are keeping ‘strikers’ of the anti-human rights opposing teams at bay and ‘trembling’. Look at what happened recently when the ‘strikers’ of the anti-human rights team saw the presence of the human… Read more »

Arenzy, you are just commenting in what u dont even understand. U know what? So, its not childish when MPs from MCP walk out of Parliamnent when the President is delivering SONA, right? Nonsense to what you are saying. They did the right thing, bcz those who enter Parliament with a good motive are allowed, this is the first time to hear that MPs have walked out Parliament bcz unwanted visitor was in the house. Sure, they are terrorists!
