Malawi Congress Party (MCP) spokesperson Jessie Kabwila has branded the Peter Mutharika led government as incompetent and out-of-touch.
Kabwila said in parliament when lawmakers from across the political divide expressed dismay that ministers were undermining the National Assembly by not answering questions tabled by MPs in the august House.
Former vice president Khumbo Kachali also voiced his concerns, saying business is being stalled because of the ministers’ failure to answer questions.
Kachali advised cabinet ministers to make it a point to attend Parliament during question and answer sessions.
The MCP spokeswoman went ballistic, blasting the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration for being hopeless.
“Stop calling this a caring government,” Kabwila who is Salima North West MP, said calling to Mutharika to get a grip on an “incompetent government”.
She said: “This is an incompetent government.”
Kabwira said the DPP-led government is behaving as if they are not ready to government.
MP for Chiradzulu East Constituency, Henry Mussa , who is also cabinet minister said: “This is not a place where you come and prove how good you are at using negative language.”
Restoring order, First Deputy Speaker of Parliament Esther Mcheka Chilenje told the legislators “we are all honourable members and this is an honourable house which challenges us to treat it with the respect it deserves.”
She said the very fact of their being elected as MPs was enough sign that they were all competent, hence the trust that their constituents bestowed upon them with their votes.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
