Member of Parliament for Lilongwe City Centre Constituency, David Bisnowaty, and Thursday condemned the tendency of spreading rumours about President Prof. Peter Mutharika’s health.
Speaking at Kauma area in Lilongwe during the commemoration of the 2016 International Day for Disaster Reduction, Bisnowaty said Malawians could not win the fight of reducing the impact of disasters unless they were united.
“The cancer of this country is jealousy,” said Bisnowaty. “The cancer of this country is rumour mongering. People spend time spreading false and unfounded stories. We cannot get anywhere as a country with such tendency.”
He said as the Dean of Diplomatic Corps, Thandiwe Dumbutshena, said in her remarks at the 2016 Malawi Investment Forum in Lilongwe, for a country that was in pursuit of development and progress the role of the opposition was to give constructive and not destructive criticism.
The Lilongwe City Centre legislator, who won the May 2014 elections on an independent ticket, hailed government for responding to his constituents’ needs when they were affected by stormy rains during the previous rainy season.
He recalled how the Vice President, Dr. Saulos Chilima, took his time to visit the areas of Kauma, Dubai (Area 49) and Ngomani to appreciate the damage the stormy rains had caused.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
