Mwenifumbo rules out resigning from parliamentary inquiry on maizegate

Karonga Central MP Frank Mwenifumbo has ruled out resigning from the parliamentary inquiry on maizegate following his severe criticisms to the chairman of the inquiry.

Mwenifumbo: I will remain member

The plain talking Mwenifumbo criticised the chairman, Joseph Chidanti Malunga, for his unilateral decision to drop him from Zambia trip where eight members of the committee have gone as part of the inquiry on how Admarc bought maize.

“I don’t have problems with the whole inquiry but one person, the chairman. I am not resigning from the inquiry because some people might think am influenced by politics,” he said.

He was the only one dropped from the trip after another member, John Chikalimba was hospitalised, begging questions as to why he was the only one dropped.

The chairman of Human Rights Consultative Committee Robert Mkwezalamba asked Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya to intervene in the matter.

“The matter has potential of making people lose trust in the inquiry,” he said.

The inquiry members left Malawi on Monday and are expected back on Sunday.

On Wednesday, they are expected to question Agriculture minister George Chaponda.

Meanwhile, Mwenefumbo told Capital Radio Straight Talk program on Thursday that the House inquiry has credibility.

Rev. Charles Chidongo Chinula (from the North), Mr. Charles J. Matinga and …. I have forgotten … (but from the Southern Region too). There was none from the Central Region of course. But a sad incident happened. The two Southerners decided to leave one day earlier than planned but they did not to inform Rev. Chinula. Lo! and Behold! When… Read more »

This country needs people who have unifying comments like you. I have read every sentence of your long comment and I surely ended up learning several issues. I wish you could ask for a column from Nyasa Times so we could get a chance to learn much more about the country’s history from a neutral man like you. Be abundantly blessed

Zativuta. He knows what is going on. Bravo Mwenefumbo dont waste your time we have lost the plot.

koma abale inu eeh
That Committee had NO credibility from the get go, because it was set up based on innuendo and hearsay. …waste of our hard earned money! And it still has NO credibility at all, contrary to what Mwenifumbo is saying. In spite of the fact that there are some decent individuals on that Committee. The way Mwenifumbo (and Kaluwa) continue to act, as parliamentarians, they are is going to be so much bad blood between these two and all other MPs, except perhaps the ones from their North. What would it take for these two to change their mind set, when… Read more »
