Vice President Khumbo Kachali will on Monday next week give a report to the National Assembly on the Capitol Hill money looting which is estimated at about K2 billion.
Parliament will convene from Monday following President Joyce Banda”s directive that the National Assembly convene earlier than planned to address among others the Capitol Hill cash gate scandal and the assets and declaration bill.
Leader of the House Henry Phoya said in an interview that the Vice President will give the report instead of the President.
Some wondered why it was the VP to give the report and not the Head of State herself.
But Phoya said: “The vice president is part of the presidency. He is citizen 2 of the country. So it is the presidency giving the report.”
Phoya said the National Assembly will discuss the report and various bills that were left from the previous sitting.
Government is bringing three new bills on the floor in the names of Declaration of Assets Bill, Estate Duty Amendment Bill and Trafficking in Persons Bill.
Phoya said two more bills — University of Malawi and Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources — left out in previous meetings, are also scheduled to appear on the order paper.
