Nankhumwa rules out impeachment plans for Speaker Gotani Hara

Leader of the House Kondwani Nankhumwa has ruled out government plans to oust Speaker Catherane Gotani Hara, saying the issue has never been discussed.

Nankhumwa: No impeachment of Madam Speaker

Nankhumwa said this on Wednesday in parliament when he gave a statement to the House on his controversial letter to Hara in which he described her as arrogant and biased towards the opposition.

“No issue of impeachment of the Speaker can be raised and has never been raised on the government side,” said Nankhumwa.

His statement however fell short of an apology to the Speaker as demanded by the opposition after the letter was leaked to social media platforms even before reaching Hara.

However, Nankhumwa said he had one to one talk with the Speaker outside the Business Committee, parliament’s political leadership, saying the two agreed on a number of issues going forward but did not disclose the issues they had agreed on.

Speaker Gotani Hara was not in the House when Nankhumwa made the statement, First Deputy Speaker Madalitso Kazombo was in the chair instead.

Hara also could not rule on whether the National Assembly can proceed to confirm the new Inspector General of police Duncan Mwapasa following a court order stopping parliament from making such determination.

Replace the biased Speaker with Able Trained Mcheka Chilenje, The Lady is being controlled by MCP and she is too emotional and her thinking is bent on tribal lines. She may be Educated but not fit for the Job. I respect Kazombo, have interacted with him while he was an Auditor at Delloite, Let Kazombo and Mcheka Chilenje guide Parliament

So you the others because you have ever eaten kanyenya ans talked to them before?? Have you ever had a talk with Madam speaker to know what sort of a person she is? Have you ever been in the speaker’s post before to know what she’s passing through?

Do not judge too early….be objective and don’t overtrust polititicians, mudzagona ndi njala komanso panja and pomaliza look stupid!

Just like Chilenje was and is controlled by the devil promoting party dpp, unfortunately you do not have the numbers required to impeach her so she stays munya muona anthu akuba

Kkkk. Nankhumwa you know very well that you don’t have the numbers to impeach the speaker. If you had the numbers you would have moved the motion. Gotani Hara will be there until 2024 even after DPP has been removed after the impending rerun.
