Legislator apologises over raincoats request

The Lilongwe South East legislator Steve Malondera apologised on Thursday in Parliament just a day after he made the request in the House.

He has also withdrawn his statement following a backlash from the public.
Malondera has instead asked parliament to construct walkways that would keep them protected when it is raining.

First Deputy Speaker Madalitso Kazombo has thus instructed Parliament secretariat to remove the remarks from the records.
