MPs roast Chakwera’s hard-hitting speech in response to Sona

Leader of Opposition in Parliament Lazarus Chakwera met his day of fate on Tuesday when prominent Members of Parliament took their turns to roast him after his hard-hitting speech in  response to President Peter Mutharika’s State of the Nation Address (Sona) tpresented in Parliament on Friday.

Felix Jumbe: Mutharika has fixed the economy

Mutharika asserted and showcased that “we have delivered” development to Malawians.
The State President proved his case with examples of turning around the economy without budget support, roads, rural electrification to many trading centers and villages, rural growth centers, expanding university infrastructure, building community technical colleges and bringing investors to provide youth employment plus many more.
Instead, Chakwera used his traditional speech of responding to the State of the Nation Address by claiming that the President was lying and that there was nothing happening in the country.
He also said Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration has “miserably failed” to deliver on its socio-economic promises to Malawians.
It now turns out that Chakwera has drawn critical fire from Members of Parliament who on Tuesday took turns to trash Chakwera’s claims as wild and false.
Felix Jumbe (MCP) talked about how President Mutharika has fixed the economy while independent MP Frank Mwenifumbo appreciated the development that has taken place in the North under Muthariks.
In a moment of humour, Mwenifumbo also declared himself AFORD president.
Further, People’s Party ( PP) MP Werani Chilenga talked about the dishonesty in the Leader of Opposition in disowning the K4 bn which the house itself had passed.
He told the house that it smacked of a clear sign of lack of leadership in Chakwera.
Chilenga vindicated Mutharika who, in his national address, told the house that “We cannot be Parliamentarians who come to make laws and go out there to demonstrate against our own laws.” This was referring to Chakwera who on 27 April led the demonstrations against the K4 billion which parliament passed for rural development during the midterm budget review session.
In another turn, another Member of Parliament Victor Musowa (DPP)  told Chakwera that he got most of the information wrong, thereby proving that opposition keader’d speech should not be trusted.
Musowa gave an example of the allegation that the lifts at Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH) are not working.
Musowa told the House the lifts are functional and that Government has bought a new one from China. It is in the country and will be fitted next month.
In his turn, Uladi Mussa dismissed assertions that Malawi is a failed state giving an example that Mutharika has done a lot already to Malawi, including the construction of the Kasiya road which goes through Chakwera’s own constituency.
Mussa asserted that Chakwera has lost connection with reality because traditional leaders along the Kasiya road are appreciating the development while Chakwera says “there is nothing happening” in the country.
Outside Parliament Chakwera’ s statement has failed to resonate with the public. Like the others before, the response is full of lies, deliberately avoids the facts on the ground and it is largely a response to the DPP Manifesto instead of the President’s address.

Chakwera Is like a Robot! This guy and his choir (MCP) keep singing the sizikuyenda song when the truth is that everything is moving forward. He cant even see developments happening in his own constituency, cant see the roads, buildings, airports, hospitals, Portable water, Schools, businesses happening in Lilongwe and so many parts in this country.

Malawi is surely on the move. We believe the remaining issues are for the current administration to resolve and fix such as electricity. Otherwise good show Mr. President. I will vote for you gain and again.

No wonder these pro-DPP cant see what is obvious to Malawians. They are there to fill their pot-bellied stomachs. CRY MY BELOVED COUNTRY. No redemption in sight as the thieves have vowed to use any means possible to stay in power. God will see what to do about this.

Mr Speaker, people have spoken. The response from the Leader of Opposition is an excellent candidate for “out of order” ruling.

When you were paid to support the president this is what happens. You tend to be relevant. If you can see the list of MPS that attached Chakwera, all of them are newly recruited MPs in the likes of Jumbe, Uladi Mussa etc. They are acting under fear to be called spies etc.

And these MPs are thieves & beneficiaries of PLUNDERED state resources. A good example is the K4 billion scam.
Malawians should brace for more LOOTING since the president has vowed NOT to LET power SLIP OFF DDP’s hands, come rain or sunshine.
SHAME on THIEVES!!!

Just like what braz mMericano has been doing. Full of loud mouth with little to offer. I for one is interested to hear what the opposition can offer. The Mtambo mtambo guys all they know is to make sure madala team is still given a chance to continue looting and keeping the citizenry in misery. Shame! Let Chakwera speak. This is the time to hear things under that red mat.

It is the whole lot of mps in our parliament who are out of touch with poor Malawians, especially the current crop. The non disbursement of K4b is still painful for most of them because they wanted this money for campaign. I bet, more than half of the mps will not make it to parliament after next elections. Chakwera should not worry about their responses to his speach because the so called mps are a disgruntled lot and they are not coming back while Chakwera will still be there. Can you expect anything meaningful from Jumbe, Musa, Chilenga (movers) who… Read more »

Musa, Chilenga and a whole lot of DPP MPs are just singing for their supper. i don’t think they believe what is coming out of their mouths. I have known most of these MPs to be intelligent, smart, exposed and otherwise enlightened. Peter must have cursed these MPs with a very powerful curse. They seem to be under some some sort of strong (Peter) spell to the extent that act as zombies with instruction to kill. Their souls and consciousness is long gone and you can see it from their eyes and what comes out their mouths. They stand up… Read more »
