Made in China: Malawi Parliament roof collapse

Clerk of Parliament Fiona Kalemba has confirmed that part of the ceiling at the Parliament Building in the capital Lilongwe collapsed on Monday.

Parliament roof collapse

Parliament Building was constructed by China government and was opened in June 2010. That project cost around $41m.

Chinese construction companies have been busy in Malawi since the two countries established diplomatic ties in December 2007, and Malawi abandoned its links to Taiwan after 41 years.

Kalemba said in a statement seen by Nyasa Times that the collapse was caused by the damage to the building’s gutter system, causing a pipe to burst above the riff ceiling in corridors adjacent to one of the Committee Rooms.

The Clerk of Parliament assured that the National Assembly will continue to ensure maintenance of the grand building.

According to Kalemba, no inquiries were recorded and repairs to the affected parts started.

Late Bingu Mutharika is the architect of the Malawi Parliament the third world class building for Africans who know only to beg instead of financing these structures themselves. Instead of Malawi government doing it he diverted government fund’s to build his own mansion at his farm Ndata in Thyolo. That building Ndata should be confiscated by UTM government. Joyce Banda failed to do she was busy arguing with Madona because her younger sister Anjimile Mtila who was a director for Madonas charity in the country abused funds and Madona fired Anjimile and Joyce was upset about it.

Atolankhani athu tamalembani zoona. A ceiling collapse is not a roof collapse. After the confirmation of the story by clerk of parliament it is clear that its the ceiling that collapsed NOT the roof. I wonder where you got the roof collapse story from. Osamanena za mmaluwa.

Come May elections the DPP will collapse just like the roof of parliament. By the way why are so many constructions collapsing (school building, bridge, roads, etc.)? This is surely a metaphor for the state of Malawi.
