DPP’s Musowa apologises over reckless Covid-19 vaccine remarks:’ I feel embarrassed’

Controversial Mulanje Bale MP Victor Musowa (Democratic Progressive Party-DPP) has apologized and retracted his statement he said at a political rally, accusing the government of bringing to the people covid-19 vaccine instead of maize.

MP Victor Musowa: I am soryy

Speaking Saturday  in Nsanje at a political campaign rally, Musowa said the district has been hit by food shortages.

He said instead of giving people the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine, the government should have given them food first.

However, this has caused a storm in various social media platforms.

Musowa has released a voice clip to the WhatsApp group of members of parliament, apologising to the government, the minister of Health and the people of Malawi over the remarks.

“I feel embarrassed because of what I said. I have received complaints from both low and high level (classes) of people. I should not have said what I said,” he says.

He says given another opportunity to speak on a public rally, he would apologize to the people of Malawi.

Mbuzi iyi. Is the government supposed to give maize to the people? I thought everyone is supposed to fend for themselves and the government should just provide support like it does with cheap fertilizers. The unfortunate part is that he has joined the group of idiots who are discouraging people to take vaccines. He is another Magufuli. What a stupid leader! Your apology is not enough. You have done the damage.DPP isadzabwerenso basi.

His emotions supercedes his thinking capacity, anyway I guess he has learnt something otherwise I expect him as a law maker to be exemplary.U need to consult before u say anything to the public because every statement from ur mouth is proving to be senseless

This shows how sick the DPP is. You may apologize but we are very sorry for those who elected you to parliament because you do not have wisdom at all. You should thank God for the post you hold as there are many deserving people from your area who are better qualified than you.Take care.
