Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) legislator has asked the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government to resign.
The Salima north west MP said the Peter Mutharika administration has failed Malawians with the way it handled the procurement of maize from Zambia.
She said this as the parliamentarians made contributions to a parliamentary inquiry report on maizegate.
“This is a party that steals maize instead of giving maize to the people. You are now a party of maize theft,” said Kabwila in parliament looking directly at the government front bench which sits senior ruling Democratic Progressive Party officials who are also cabinet ministers.
She mocked them, saying since the DPP came to power, it has been registering public funds and property thefts called gates more than the number of cabinet ministers.
“We are an agrarian country therefore it is unfair for the government to be protecting a person who stole the livelihood of people,” she said.
Mzimba West MP Harry Mkandawire said apart from Chaponda, Agriculture secretary Erica Maganga, Transglobe’s director of Operations Tayub should be charged with perjury for lying.
He said these people peddled a lot of lies to the committee.
