Malawi parliament political leadership tell Nankhumwa apologise to Speaker

Malawi Parliament’s Business Committee has agreed that Leader of the House Kondwani Nankhumwa should apologise to Speaker Catherane Gotani Hara over a letter which describes Hara as arrogant and biased towards the opposition.

Nankhumwa asked to address the Houde and say sorry to Speaker

Parliament’s Business Committee is the political leadership of the 193-strong House which met on Tuesday following a commotion caused by opposition legislators over the letter.

The opposition legislators say the letter was not in accordance with the House decorum and questions why it was leaked to social media platforms even before it reached Hara.

Acting Leader of Opposition Lobin Lowe said the business committee agreed that Nankhumwa should address the House and make an apology when the parliamentarians resume meeting at 2pm today, Wednesday.

In a separate interview, Nankhumwa conceded it was wrong for the letter to find its way into the social media platforms before it reached the Speaker herself.

Hara has since responded to the letter but its contents are yet to be known to the public.

Hon Nankhumwa swallow your pride and apologise. Hon Gotani Hara is the Head and her decisions are final on all parliamentary matters, a decision has to be made in one way or the other. She is your Speaker whether you like it or not for the next five years!!!!!!!

Bravo Nankhumwa for calling a spade a spade. No need for apology boss. If she doesn’t improve, start impeachment process.

No need for apologies Mr. Nankhumwa. Catherine is MCP giant and is biased towards MCP and not fit for Speaker. Msowoya from MCP was even better than this silly madam Hara. She lacks leadership skills in parliament. Dont apolgize Mr. Nankhumwa. If anything she continues like that we urge for the motion of impeachment. We want Speaker like late late Sam Mpasu who did not even side with UDEvuuuu in those days.

May be you are a kid in politics……Mpasu remains the worst ever speaker Malawi has ever had. Do you remember if not we should tell you that he so partisanly voted UDF to tie break the second deputy speaker contest in parliament when the opposition needed just the last opportunity to be represented….and you list him as one of the best?? No wonder RIP UDF. Just as people keep on touting as one of the best presidents…….he remains one of the most stupid dead presidents Malawi has ever had…after all there are only two dead ones so far another one… Read more »

This is the Worst Speaker Malawi Parliament has ever had, very Partisan a betrayer and a witch. Hon Nankhumwa should not apologise, instead should take the opportunity to expose her more. Where is Mcheka Chilenje? a well balanced and well trainer Speaker, Not this one who is so notorious and overating herself for nothing. We miss Hon Msowoya

The tone of the letter itself shows that it was not authored by Nankhumwa. He cannot write such English

Do not apologise. What you said was true.
