Dzoole claims govt MPs muted on budget contributions with Mutharika’s cash handouts  

Opposition legislators on Tuesday afternoon took to task their counterparts sitting on government accusing them of pocketing K100,000 each from President Peter Mutharika to remain silent.

Dzoole Mwale: Government MPs have pocketed cash not to crticise the budget

Member of Parliament (MP) for Lilongwe Msozi-South Vitus Dzoole-Mwale (Malawi Congress Party-MCP) ignited the debate aafter noting that it was only ministers who contributed to the mid-year budget review as the legislators on government side were surprisingly mute.

“This side is quiet today and am told they have received K100, 000 each one. Of them to remain silent. They are sidelining the wishes of the people,” said the veteran vocal MP.

Other opposition members of parliament, who took turns to criticise the government side, said it was unfair that the tax payers should give them a fat K50,000 for each MP each day for them to remain silent on crucial debate affecting the people.

However, the government side did not take it lying idle.

Some of the legislators from the government side described the contributions by opposition MPs as trash.

Government chief whip Henry Mussa rejected allegations the government had given its MPs money to be silent and demanded evidence from Dzoole Mwale.

First deputy speaker Esther Mcheka Chilenje managed to control the situation which seemed to be getting out of hand and debate on the mid -year budget resumed.

Chambe should change his name to Chimbwi because he sounds like one.

Udf , dpp and their prostituting independent MPs should feel ashamed of themselves. What is the point of you being in parliament and say nothing? Just because of 100, 000 kwacha?

At least you could have opened your mouths to praise the budget of your stupid dpp govt rather than totally remain silent. Just your total silence alone is adequate enough to raise suspicions that you have been bribed by just 100,000 kwacha. Next time demand 1mn you stupid fools. You are cheating the very poor people who elected you.

A clear indication that impeachment process can flop for those of you calling for it. The independent MPs can easily swing votes.
