I cannot be intimidated – Kamlepo

Rumphi East member of Parliament (MP) Kamlepo Kalua (People’s Party-PP) has said no amount of intimidation or harassment will deter him from carrying out the constitutionally prescribed duties of a legislator.

Kamlepo:   cannot be intimidated!; in the service of this country, I can't!; it is too late!
Kamlepo: cannot be intimidated!; in the service of this country, I can’t!; it is too late!

Kamlepo told the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government in parliament not to intimidate him when he gives checks and balances in the National Assembly.

He was reacting to what Leader of the House Francis Kasaila remarks that the United Democratic Front (UDF) administration used to reward Kalua, but the DPP government would not do that.

“You have got to be very careful because I was among the people who brought multiparty democracy. I cannot be intimidated by anybody,” said Kalua.

“ I know why I fought for multiparty democracy and nobody can intimidate me. And I say nobody!”

He continued: “And when I start, it will be sad for the DPP government, and you know about it, they know about it. Let’s be fair and reasonable when it comes to national development. National unity should be a priority.”

Kalua in his contribution to the State Opening of Parliament Address made by President Peter Mutharika on Friday, accused the government of turning a blind eye to its own extravagance through the purchase of vehicles he claimed were worth K4 billion ($7,142,857).

He claimed that the Executive had spent K650 million to buy top-of-the-range Toyota Prado VX models for the presidential convoy and four Toyota Landcruiser V8 models for the Vice-President.

Kalua also alleged that the Executive bought 10 Toyota Prados for senior officials and 30 vehicles of a similar make for principal secretaries in government.

“ If they want evidence, I have it including chassis numbers,” Kalua said.

They keep telling us there is no money, yet they spend billions on cars. They are lying, we have money in Malawi to fulfill all Public services.

They are lying that we don’t have money so that they steal more for their greedy self-enrichment because they know that people have already been brainwashed into believing that we don’t have money. They are therefore taking advantage by stashing their pockets with our money.

Thieves and thugs forever these dpp mutants.

Kalua is correct coz it is our taxes most Malawian civil servants are heavily taxed no wonder we are poorer than a church mouse. DDP should not take us for granted however avoid tribalism.

my bazooka! hit them hard. these are thieves. one big thief once bragged that he is a millioner ! my foot! millioniers do not hand over green cards to usa govt in order to qualify for presendential elections. only poor educated thieves do that after a careful cost_benefit analysis.
