Gwengwe resigns as chair for Budget and Finance Committee of Parliament 

Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  member of parliament for  Lilongwe Msozi North, Sosten Gwengwe, has resigned as chairperson of the Budget and Finance Committee of Parliament.

Sosten Gwengwe

Gwengwe  said he has resigned because the legal provision of chairing the committee states that the head should a member of the opposition party to provide checks and balances.

“Now that I am in government, I cannot continue to be be chairperson of the committee,” he said.

“I can continue to serve in the committee as a member but not as a chairperson,” he said.

The opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) will provide their chairperson to the committee.

Apparently, Gwengwe is one of the MCP legislators who could make it in Cabinet.

In 2014, Gwengwe was the running mate to the then incumbent president Joyce Banda.

Having same old faces, in cabinet like Gwengwe who failed in the past is regressive.

We need new faces. We need to start on a clean slate.

Gwengwe didn’t fail in the past. You know yourself what happened that’s why now you’re in opposition. Infact, he is one of the best to be in the current cabinet.
