The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government has been accused of “sleepwalking” in power while the country is facing huge challenges.
The accusations were made in parliament by opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) member f parliament for Salima North East, Jessie Kabwila.
“I am actually saying as the representatives of Malawians, there is something that should be in our Constitution to say we have no government at this moment because, they are either not knowing what they are supposed to do or they are asleep, so I am worried,” said Kabwila.
It is not the first time for Kabwila to accuse DPP-led government of sleeping walking the country into a failed state.
She on record in parliament to have accused the leadership of this country to be poverty deniers and that President Peter Mutharika “does not know what he is doing.”
But Leader of the House, Kondwani Nankhumwa said government is not sleepwalking but in total control.
“Government still exists and it will continue existing beyond 2019,” Nankhumwa said.
Speaker of Parliament, Richard Msowoya also said that “government does exist.”
Said Msowoya: “It is seated and responding to questions although not all of them. But government is in position.”
Msowoya curtailed discussion on the matter after assurance from the Leader of the House that the government does exist and “a wishful thinking” that is shall still exist after 2019.
