Mzimba West MP Harry Mkandawidre brought to the attention of deputy speaker Clement Chiwaya to suspend proceedings in the chamber in order to force out the intelligence officers.

Mkandawire accused the government of sending the spies into the House in order to intimidate and harass opposition legislators.

However, Leader of the House Francis Kasaira said there were no spies in the House claiming Mkandawire was mistaking ministry technocrats who help cabinet ministers with answers to questions during question time for s pies.

He said the opposition just wanted to derail deliberations in the House.

The deputy speaker said he did not have evidence that there were spies in the House.

The proceedings went ahead.
