DPP, MCP asked to stop verbal attacks

32

 The Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has advised the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to resolve their differences as the Parliamentary session has started.

PAC Chairperson, Felix Chingota, says during the parliamentary session there is a need to focus on development issues rather than party enmity.

“They are supposed to focus on development projects which are in some sectors and how to solve them,” Chingota said.

According to Chingota, a parliamentary meeting is not there to deal with political affairs but economic issues.

Kabwila: Has been vocal as well.

Lately, the MCP has been attacking the DPP led government for what it terms as failure to run the country.

A story Malawi24 carried some weeks ago indicated the anger MCP had worn over remarks made by DPP’s leader in Parliament, Francis Kasaila that the party will never rule Malawi.

Kasaila, while claiming that MCP will only rule Malawi in the next 100 years or never, said    he believes that the mentality the opposition has had since the inception of multiparty democracy has been behind underdevelopment for this nation.

“Let the opposition come with constructive views and not always stand to oppose everything we do. Let them join us in building this nation,” Kasaila said in response to a question on how government is coping up with pressure from opposition and pressure groups.

In her reaction, MCP Publicist, Jessie Kabwila in an interview with Malawi24, said that it was unfortunate for the Kasaila to say that to the media.

Kabwila said that MCP is not ruling now and that it is only waiting for polls to come.

“MCP is not ruling now and all we are waiting for is the next elections. He thinks ruling is taking a lot of people to the UN. Look at what is happening in the hospitals, schools will you call this ruling.

“MCP is not only going likely rule, but will do so because of this mismanagement that they have done” she said.

Kasaila: Has also breathed fire on MCP.

MCP has since said that it is time for the DPP to pull the economy out of its troubles and not to keep trashing its critics and yet claim that it will never get out of office.

As if this was not enough, President Peter Mutharika took to town to blast MCP and its leader Lazarus Chakwera

Speaking at the laying of a foundation stone for the Lilongwe bypass road in the Capital City, Mutharika challenged that his DPP government is visionary when it was compared to the opposition MCP.

“They were in power for 30 years and they did nothing,” said Mutharika. “Now, they are jealous because we are doing things that they failed to do.”

Mutharika went on to challenge that it was because of their failing to deliver in  the 30 years that they were in power which would make them keep remaining in opposition

“These people who failed to deliver for 30 years will keep being in the opposition and they will never rule this country,” said Mutharika in his mockery of the extravagant Chakwera.

    • Stupid and shut up!!!! I hope you were living in diaspora when Kamuzu was developing Malawi. He may have had his weakness just as Bingu had but you can combine development projects carried out by Muluzi+Bingu+Joyce Banda+Mr Ibu which up to now cannot surpass kamuzus projects. The KIA Aiport, University of Malawi, nearly all district hospitals including two central hospitals, Admarc, Tarmac roads etc. what Bingu did worth mentioning is MPUMULO wa bata and International Conference centre possibly including MUHLAKHO wa AHLOMWE
