Group wants parliament sitting cancelled

62

A group of people calling themselves concerned citizens has asked government to cancel the next sitting of Parliament and to instead use the money to assist hunger victims.

The next parliamentary sitting will commence on Monday, February 22 and during the session, members are expected to discuss several issues including the hunger crisis.

Group says Parliament should not meet

However, one of the concerned citizens, Lackson Million, said the state president should cancel the session in order to channel the money towards purchasing maize.

Million said it will be strange to see Members of Parliament (MPs) receiving hefty allowances and enjoying delicious meals at the expense of government while people who put them into power are not eating at all or are having one meal a day and spending nights at Agriculture Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc) waiting to buy maize.

“The story of the coming parliament sitting is not good at all. I recall during Bingu wa Mutharika’s era, he once suspended the then session as the country experienced economic crisis as it is now.

“Now I am speaking as a Malawian citizen that can’t this Parliament meeting be suspended? You can see that in different constituencies where these MPs are coming from, people are dying of hunger,” said Million.

Million however acknowledged that the MPs have to discuss important issues concerning the country but argued that ending the maize crisis should be a priority.

He then blamed opposition parties for being silent on the matter, saying they should have been the ones advocating for the suspension of Parliament.

  8. I don’t get Us Malawians these MPs are paid monthly salaries that means doing parliament sitting is in their job description and they wanna be paid ….that’s like being appointed a job and asking them to pay you extra for showing up at work!!!!!! ma demo basi !!!! asiye kuwalipira makapewa alah

  10. If these Paliamentarians driving Navaras, Prados, Fortuners have half the concern of the people who put them there, they better agree to cut their fat allowances (which they use on teen girlfriends anyway), and indeed let the balanced go feed people who voted for them eating gaga in their constituents. No wonder these guys get sick every time they hear “Magufuli!”.

  11. Parliament? My Foot!! We Dont Need Anybody To Waste Our Hard Earned Chilembwe, Palibe Choti Akakambirane Choti Chingathandize A Malawi, Even One Of The Mps Confess, Amangopitirako Ma Allowance Basi, Forget Za Parliament.

  12. Stupid gvnt n plus so called parliament! When the hunger started? U mean u never ever talked about this hunger so long in parliament, now u want 2 discuss Monday! U wasting poor ppos money enough! Stupid gvnt plus the whole cabinet

  16. Yes, the budget set for MPs meetings should b Used to buy maize to rescue people who are starving because the meeting is for live not the dead people. There4 first, save peopl’s life.

  17. Poti ndinu mzika zokhuzidwa mukanakhala patsogolo kufunafuna nawo thandizo loti nanu muthandizepo pa vutoli,osati kuletsa boma kuimitsa mnsonkhano wa nyumba yamalamulo.

  18. There is some sense,to hear reports of children died of hunger,de concerned ones r talkin the true.May i edge u to follow proper channel to convc these Bosses of us

    • may u dont even knw that your statement is contradictory..by the way,which one do u call our bosses?they are stewards.i pay 16.5% VAT for their food& toilet tissue.we are their bosses.parliament will meet to discuss relevant issues.there many pressing issues,not this petty issue.

  19. ll strongly recommend and agree with Million’s brilliant motive of asking opposition parties to susapend the current parliament sitting. Mutharika and his fellow bandits should have thought about. How can one be holding parties while hie people are dying of hunger? Just about two months ago, we heard that

  20. l stronky agree with Million’s brilliant and recmmendable motive.A genuine and relable state president never hold parties while his people are dying of hunger. pitala and his fellow dpp bandits should have emulated what John Magufuli-a Tanzanian president did,- just about some months ago- he cancelled a republic celebration to the country’s economic crisis.

  21. They better meet on conditions that they’ll not take more time kumakangana zopusa. Pajatu don’t forget kuti Mr Bwampini SONA yake only takes 25 minutes

  22. I agree with this opinion because when we look critically what our Mps discussing, about 90% of them are nothing to the majority of the country, am 100% concur wt this idea, how can the country waste Millions of Kwach to the gathering that the beneficiaries are only powerful domestic individuals while those who put them on their seats {voters} are starving with hunger???. Selfishness.

  23. Things doesn’t work that way, the parliament is where various issues are debated, it is a place where the big fish can be held accountable for poor service delivery.

  24. People why are u asking about concerned citizen ??is the the issue they are raising irrelevant?? Do u khw how much MG spends a day after parliament sitting???? Really to me its good idea kusesa amayambira munyumba kutsirizira kunja,,,and if MG agree with that idea I believe doners will take them seriously

    • ku malawi kwachulukadi mbuli..iwe,such an idea will not materialise in a democratic dispensation.the parliament discusses several relevant issues,nde u want it called off due to this petty issue?do u even mind the relevance of the access to information bill.dont u think its time the DPP must bow down,eliminate its arrogance& allow this bill to be tabled?malawians are not dull seriously

  25. IWE Million ndiwe opusa eti athu enanu kaya ndi chamba chimakupwetekani pamenepa pali za opposition kuti ndiyolakwa osamamufusa Mfiti yanuyo pitala bwanji athu anayamba kale kunena kuti mziko muno muli njala koma ku parliament komweko a boma amati ali ndi chimanga chokwanira, ndiye lero iwe ukuti a opposition alakwa chiyani kusuta eti. amene akutuma umuuze kuti ndichitsiru ngati iweyo panya pako million wamva. osamamuuza pitalayo kuti achose malate ndi cement subside zikungotha ndalama athu akufuna makhwala muzipatala, kodi nyumba za malatazo amangira athu angati siuchitsiru wa president umenewo iwe ndi pitala munthalika panya panu nonse.

  26. Nanu inu pali very pressing issues zoti akambilane whats the next step like zanjalayo,zipani zons that they r represented akuyenera kukambilana,CONCERNED CITIZENS! CONCERNED CITIZENZ MY FOOT! In nfact u r unconcerned citizens because you dont want parliament to deliberate hunger issues

  27. who the hell are u(concerned citizens?)…do u know why the honourable house meet?the MPs are there to question the stupid policies put in place by this arrogant leadership.such policies are the cause of the problems we are facing,foolish ideas.if u want publication attention,u better join the homosexuals.get arrested the the world will know u

  28. i agree with dc opinion.sometimes wen am listening to Malawi’s parliament deliberations i cry for my vote.mostly our parliament is characterised by unmeaningful jeers such dat re-allocating funds meant for d forth coming parliament sitting to d current unbearable maize crisis can not b a mistaken gear#opinion#matters
