Increased racism moves MP Musowa to ask Malawi govt for action: Cites Mpingwe Sports Club

Member of Parliament for Mulanje Bale, Victor Musowa of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has asked Parliament to take action and deal with increasing cases of racial discrimination being perpetrated by foreign nationals against Malawians.

Victor Musowa (c) has asked Parliament to take action and deal with increasing cases of racial discrimination being perpetrated by foreign nationals against Malawians.

Using private members motion, Musowa said some places of entertainment and hotels are barring Malawians from access and that in some hotels, Malawians are being racially abused.

The legislator has since called upon the Legal Affairs and Foreign Affairs committees of Parliament to zero in on the matter and come up with a solution to ensure the malpractice is tamed.

Musowa cited an example where some Malawians were allegedly turned away from accessing Mpingwe Sports Club on claims of racial abuse.

“I am a sober parliamentarian who always think about tomorrow. I opened it to the public so that we should have an ample time to look at the reality,” said Musowa after he moved his private member’s motion.

However, Minister of Homeland Security Richard Chimwendo Banda while agreeing with Musowa that the problem is significant and needs to be dealt with, said investigations have shown that some clubs such as Mpingwe are membership-based hence only paid-up members are allowed entry.

“When we see such issues of racism coming up, we should condemn them,” said Chimwendo Banda.

He cautioned against generalising Indians as bad, saying there are some who are contributing positively to the national development.

Chimwendo Banda, nonetheless, said Indians must respect that Malawians have rights too, including to proper earnings.”

He said the government is committed to enforcing relevant laws to deal with the issue adequately.

Musowa wasowa zochita and wayiwala za tribalism which dpp subjected to Malawians. Bingu, APM and the entire DPP thieves thought that Lomwes were superior. Only Lomwes were given top positions. They introduced the quota system of education just to ensure that northerners are pushed aside. Today he attacks Indians who have always lived in isolation. We don’t even see their girls and women. Leave them alone it’s their culture.

These indians are real bandits. They are robbing Malawi to no account. Their companies pay very limited taxes. They work with accounting firms controlled by Indians (such as ERNST YOUNG) to come up with a set of books for the banks and another one for MRA. Ernst Young is the gang leader. MRA knows this very well but since Shiraz Yusuf pays them very very well, they their heads away. John Bisiwick knows this as he has worked closely with Shiraz Yusuf when he was at PCL. We are watching him to see how he is going to handle the… Read more »

Martin, you are making a very good point here. The key for Tonse is to generate tax revenue to rebuild our country. If this bad accountant is using an international brand to help Asian business people evade taxes, he must be punished. Shiraz Yusuf is bad and baddest. I am surprise that Ernst & Young can continue to put up with this man unless the international brand is also corrupt.

MALAWIANS, Please denounce these bandits whenever you are aware of their mischiefs. We must retake our country. Such blatant tax evasion organized by ERNST YOUNG is not acceptable. We must track this and denounce them to the authorities.

You are right. I am aware of this initiative that may lead to the end of Shiraz in Malawi. He will soon be under the fire. Poor CEOs who rely on him are better jump ship before it is too late.

MRA is now fully controlled by Shiraz Yusuf, now that his friend John Bisiwick is the chief. Bisiwick gave fat contracts to Yusuf when he was the chief operations at Press Corporation. In Malawi, we are all foolish. For a few tips, we give the keys to our houses to these mwenyes who properly rob us. Surely Shiraz is happy to have his friend as head of MRA. Now all mwenyes will go to Ernst Young to cook their books and rob our Tonse government of the little taxes that they paid under DPP. Sad Malawi

Please leave John Bisiwick out of Shiraz Yusuf’s mess. John is a friend of mine and a fellow member of my church. He was a top executive of a company that gave lots of contracts to Shiraz Yusuf and his company Ernst Young. But John was not the key man in charge at Press. He has since moved on and is now at the top of MRA. Knowing John, I believe that his door will be closed to shady characters like Shiraz Yusuf. Lets give him a change and you will see by yourself. Thank you

I fully agree. Please leave John Bisiwick out of the shinegans that Shiraz Usuf has with Press. At Press, the buck stops at the desk of the CEO and not at the desk of the COO. Shiraz Yousseff knows this very well and, as a master manipulator, he knows on who to apply pressure. Shiraz Yousseph will only waste his time to buy out the key players. John has moved on to greener pasture. Shiraz Yousseffff is in safe territory since the CEO of Press still has his job (for now!) A lot of people beyond the new board members… Read more »

What do you mean by leaving John alone. Look, being a COO is tantamount to being the CEO. Look, John had a lot of power at Press and he was clearly able to hire or not to hire good and bad apple consultants such as Shiraz Yusuf. One cannot now tell me that he had no relationship with Shiraz Yusuf. The fact, these big Malawian CEO and COO rely on Asians and often, on bad Asians. Poor Malawi

Irma, I like your loyalty to John Bisiwick. I don’t know him from Adam. He is certainly a fine man. We have plenty of fine men in Malawi and the mwenyes know how to take advantage of their fineness. Lets see how John Bisiwich will treat Shiraz Yusus in the weeks and months to come. People have gone on the record to tie him up with Shiraz Yusuf. He must prove them wrong by investigating the books of all Ernst Young’s clients presented to MRA. These investigations must be aggressive and public. Only then will I agree that John Bisiwick… Read more »

No one must underestimate Shiraz Yusuf. He is considered to be one of the most powerful person in Malawi. He uses the “prestige” of Ernst Young to corner most companies in Malawi to give him contracts. People who know him thing that there is a pay-play in place. Anyone who knows more about his scheme should contact ACB. The thing is Ernst Young will soon get rid of him. His partners do not like how Shiraz Yusuf is using the brand in Malawi. There are just too many complaints about the man. He is the worse of the mwenyes. The… Read more »

Please any Malawian who knows anything on how these mwenges are robbing Malawi shall report them to the ACB. These mwenges have hired a lot of Malawians to do minor work for them. Malawians, you must spy on the mwenges and report to the authorities. We can’t go back for another round of colonialism, this time from asians pakistanis

The chartered accountants association is worrying that Shiraz is using EY signature to issue bogus audit certificates. It will be interesting to see what their investigation conclude. Malawi must follow this matter very closely.

Indians should know if we are to take them seriously they should start improving the wages they pay to ordinary Malawians. They treat Malawians like slaves and most of them have fraudulent Malawian citizenships. Take it or leave it. We should treat one another with respect.
