Mutharika’s plan to disgrace MCP backfires

73

As the dust refuses to settle over the recent purchase of expensive cars for Parliament officials, topical revelations allege that the executive pushed the legislature into such trouble in a bid to cover up its recent mess on United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) trip expenses.

A top government official in the Peter Mutharika led government has told Malawi24 that the executive did this to make Malawians view legislators as hypocrites.

“They knew that majority of the parliament top officials are dominated by Malawi Congress Party (MCP). If you can recall the same party was pressing the executive to explain on the expenses of UNGA trip thus buying them such cars was a trap to defame their party,” claimed the official pleading for anonymity.

MCP top officials: Got branded hypocrites.

He went on to justify that it is impossible for Parliament to make such decisions without authority from the executive.

“Parliament can’t decide on its own without the executive on such issues. Even laws to be passed needs authority from executive. It’s common knowledge that minister of finance knew this,” he added.

Chancellor College based legal expert Edge Kanyongolo echoed such sentiments saying the blame game lacks proper justification.

Kanyongolo blamed the mindset of politicizing matters that are not political.

“There is just much of politics between the two branches of government here, in fact i think it’s just one way the executive wants to cover up its mess,” said Kanyongolo.

Renowned print Journalist Dickson Kashoti in one of his articles also trashed the whole argument surrounding the blame game saying it lacks sense.

To him there is no problem purchasing such posh cars for opposition top officials who are “perfecters of Malawi’s democracy”.

However opinions from the executive remain antagonistic and blame Parliament for purchasing such cars while the country’s economy is passing through hot waters.

The cars cost about MK300 million.
