Some cabinet ministers are struggling to contribute in parliament because of loss of voice due to extensive political rallies the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) held over the weekend across the country.
Henry Mussa, government chief whip asked the House to bear with him for the loss of voice.
Mussa and other DPP officials held political rallies in Chiradzulu and other parts of southern region.
On Tuesday, Minister of Information Jappie Mhango struggled to answer questions from parliamentarians during question time in parliament as he could hardly be heard due to loss of voice.
Mhango and other senior party officials were in Rumphi and other parts of northern region.
Cabinet ministers, who are in the national governing council of the DPP were all over the country along with senior party officials rallying support for the DPP led government which is risking losing popularity because of the worsening economic situation that has pushed the cost of living beyond reach of ordinary Malawians.
With inflation hovering at around 25 per cent, the rapidly collapsing public health sector and financial problems affecting the performances of ministries of Agriculture and Education, Malawi is sliding towards the failed state status.
The cabinet ministers and senior party officials were assuring the nation that the Peter Mutharika administration is working round the clock to improve the situation.
They told the people that DPP will make sure the challenges are dealt with.
