Over 30 MPs fail to declare assets

Over 30 members of parliament risk losing their parliamentary seats for failing to declare their assets two years after being voted into the 193 strong House.

Chitsulo: to follow up

The law provides that all public offices declare their assets as part of the drive to stem corruption in public offices.

Director in the Office of Public Officers Declarations (ODPOD) Michael Chiusiwa said 32 members of Parliament have not declared their assets in the 2019/2020 financial year.

Chiusiwa disclosed this in Salima during a meeting with the Parliamentary Monitoring Committee.

He said 65 councillors have also not declared their assets.

There are over 400 councillors in the country.

Chairperson of the Parliamentary Monitoring Committee, Joyce Chitsulo, meanwhile describes as unfortunate that law makers are breaking the law.

She pledges to follow this up.

Post names here. This how you are deating democracy by telling us half truth. Going to the lake and only telling us figures is not enough. Please spare us us from the rhetoric to show that you are working. Is it punishable by law to publish their names? If you can’t publish their names then don’t waste time telling us figures. After all you have the instrument of the law, what is your problem not using it. You want to be seen by the public that you are working when in fact behind the scenes you are negotiating with the… Read more »

This is another office that needs scrutiny by Ombudsman. The office is only draining our meagre resources and they even had the audacity of meeting at the Lake just to present a mere report like this one!!

These are the ones who were destroying this country by thieving Malawians, if they are not declaring their assets, please the law must take its course.

I guess the majority of them are MCP because they are busy accumulating stolen resources to beef up their assets.

This is obviously making a mockery of our constitution…….please declare their seats vacant with immediate effect to set an example……we have been talking about this issue for quite some time now…..

We can not allow the very same people entrusted with making laws to rape our constitution left, right and centre……the question is, what are they trying to hide by not declaring their assets?

Nde mukumuuza ndani? Why don’t you just do your job and fire them as the law says. We thought we got rid of mediocre workmanship like this last year… It seems it’s Martha Chizuma who knows how to do her job
