Main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) on Saturday refused to get credit for government decision to revert to old secondary school fees instead applauded the government for bowing down to parliament.
Jessie Kabwila, spokesperson for the Malawi Congress Party made rare patting on the back for the government for listening to the opposition in parliament.
“Government should continue listening to the opposition. They should have done this on the issue of Malawi Savings Bank when we advised the government to recapitalise the bank instead of selling it off. They should have listened to us not to take the large entourage to the UN,” said Kabwila.
Felix Jumbe, MCP legislator for Saima central moved the motion in the last sitting of parliament forcing the government to put on hold a secondary school hike.
Kabwila said the opposition will continue to pass laws that will help and benefit ordinary Malawians.
