Minister Khumbize accuses opposition leader Nankhumwa of double standards

Health minister Khumbize Kandodo Chiponda has accused Leader of Opposition in parliament Kondwani Nankhumwa of double standards over his stinging attack on government over the gazetted Covid-19 strict preventive measures.

Minister of Health Chiponda: Nankhumwa sits in the taskforce and he contributed fully during our meetings

Chiponda said Nankhumwa was part of the team which formulated the preventive measures as he sits on the presidential taskforce on covid-19.

“This is not the time to bring politics in this matter but honourable Nankhumwa sits in the taskforce and he contributed fully during our meetings,” said Chiponda.

The minister said the country in a crisis and the government needs solutions from everybody to deal with the pandemic instead of blame game.

In a statement, Nankhumwa said the government should come up with mitigating measures such as freeing prisoners with minor charges to decongest prisons, institute zero charges on mobile money transfer, set up potable water sinks in public places to encourage hand washing in all cities and towns as well as cut the president’s and cabinet ministers salaries, among others.

Why do u need solutions from everybody? Thot people told u about Covid but u trashed every thing as fake. You boldly told UTMCP gatherings that there was no Covid. Now deal with the consequences of ur stupidity.

Nkhondoyi munayiyamba nokha woti china chili chonse chomwe APM and DPP did was regarded as nonsense ndiye lero zisakuwaweni ngati muli nazo nzeru ndi bwino kulapa kaye kwa Mulungu and apologise kwa DPP regime pa zopusa zomwe mwakhala mukuwachitira.

Alomwe ndi choncho don’t waste time with them, they were chased from Mozambique by the Portuguese because of the same behaviour, double standards. Unfortunately chewas gave them land in mulanje as refugees lero ndi izi amawatukwa achewa womwe anawapatsa malowo ati anyawu. …..even atsamunda characterised lomwes as lazy, untrustworthy and thieves, this is well documented in our history books for those who thinks am joking. And today when we talk about cashgate in the DPP government it should not surprise anyone because atsamunda already did their analysis on this group of people an£ rebelled them as outright thieves. My advice… Read more »

Join the discussion…Chimaera’s administration is disappointing, honestly. It has betrayed our trust.
