…Parliament is full of dead people
Opposition Malawi Congress Party Member of Parliament for Dedza East Juliana Lunguzi has described the Malawi Parliament for which she is a member as a hopeless place that cannot help Malawians out of their poverty.
In a post she made on Facebook, the arguably best MP of this crop lamented that her time in the house has made her realise the reasons why the country is poor.
“Malawi Parliament. The more I stay in this house, the more I get reasons why Malawi remains poor. Bad news (to all Malawians) is that this house won’t bail you out,” posted Lunguzi at a time when proceedings were ongoing in the house.
Her remarks have come at a time that Malawians are agitating for a reduction of Parliamentarians arguing that they are a waste of resources.
Meanwhile Lunguzi’s comments on the composition of the August house were met with support from a good number of Malawians who expressed that it was the same way that they felt about the August house.
“Life is tough in Malawi. The house is full of dead people. 10% of MPs are the ones with normal brains. The rest deserve to go to the mental hospital,” wrote a Chim Banda to validate the remarks made by Lunguzi.
Parliament adjourned on Friday 4 December after meeting for a month.
