National Assembly Speaker Richard Msowoya has said Members of Parliament should inform his office when they travel outside the country even on private visits.
“Honourable Members, just a reminder. It has been observed that many Honourable Members travel outside the country without informing the Office of the Speaker. It is very important that the Speaker’s office is informed even if those trips are funded by cooperating partners and not Parliament or when Members travel on personal business because in case of any eventuality wherever you are, you are still a Member of Parliament of Malawi. Therefore, the Parliament will get involved in one way or another,” said Msowoya in the House.
The Speaker said his statement was “just a plea” that MPs should always remember to inform his office.
“Even if you go to Nigeria for prayers, please let us know,” said the Speaker.
He said this in his communication to the House.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
