MP Chitete teases on rightful Aford president in Parliament

There was drama in parliament on Friday when parliamentarian for Mchinji North East, Alex Chitete, in a satirical manner teased on who was the eligible president for Alliance for Democracy (AFORD) between Enoch Chihana and Karonga Central legislator Frank Mwenifumbo.

Enock Chihana and his wife Tadala: Aford president

Chitete wondered and asked the Speaker, Richard Msowoya, if it was in order to have two presidents of the same political party in parliament.

“Mr Speaker, Sir, is it in order for this House to have two presidents for one political party?” asked Chitete.

Responding to the question, Msowoya said his office was not aware of the development.

And, former vice president and Mzimba South East Constituency legislator, Khumbo Kachali, also—satirically—congratulated both Chihana and Mwenifumbo for making it as AFORD presidents.

“We will be calling you AFORD E and AFORD M meaning factions for Mwenifumbo and Chihana,” joked Kachali.

But standing on a point of order, Chihana, who was welcomed to parliament after his return from the Pan-African Parliament by the Speaker, said he was the only genuine AFORD president.

Parliamentarians shouted “Simbi Ya Moto” in the House, supporting Chihana in memory of his father Chakufwa Chihana—a freedom fighter and former republican vice president.

“Mr Speaker, Sire, I am the only genuine president of AFORD,” said Chihana.

@Zam’tonda: Musazinyenge inu. Mia has captured MCP basi, in every consequential sense of the word. He pays the bills now (and he has his own accountants for this), and he will demand repayment when oChakwera loses the Mpando Wonona next year. Because all Mia is interested in is the VP position. That would give him access to the highway to state capture. You should think also that the Presidential vote requires a different calculus from the MPs election. The calculus may get VERY complicated: especially, with the minnow Parties for no other reason than to gang up on DPP and… Read more »
