Mkandawire is said to have beaten up an unidentified staffer on Tuesday over disagreements that arose when the victim was distributing calendars to parliamentarians.

“He will serve a 90-day suspension,” announced the Speaker in Parliament y, deploring the conduct of the MP as unparliamentarily and unacceptable.

Mkandawire will miss all Parliament engagements including committee meetings for three months.

Parliament has since adjourned after completing its four-week programme which saw several bills being passed.

Ambwenu alipo abwino komanso oipa alipo chimodzimodzi achewa ,alomwe ,asena ngaakhale timidyombafe tilipo ena oipa ena abwinonso alipo. Let’s love each other! l was just wondering if something good can come out of Ndirande, but l have just remembered that we also have the good one’s and the baddest one’s too like the MP.

Big shame on Tumbukas. The folly of it all is that Ndirande people chose to vote for such a savage as their MP. This shows how uncultured Tumbukas are, despite wearing the title honourable.

This is what DPP is all about. DPP is a party of thugs and uncultured people. The young Democrats beat up vendors in Mzuzu. Spokesperson denied the incident. DPP youth embarrassed their party vice president Gondwe. DPP killed Chasowa. DPP beat up Group Village headman. DPP beat up Chanika at COMESA. Now zafika ku Parliament. Violence is in DPP DNA. Never get surprised. Anyamata a zikwanje mmapick-ups musaiwalie ndiomwewo mwasankha ma MP. Get used to it.
