…he had threatened to expose their corruption

Malawi24 can exclusively report that opposition Malawi Congress Party Member of Parliament for Mchinji West Billy Kanjira Banda who collapsed on Sunday 13 March and was later pronounced dead at hospital had a bitter fight with deputy speaker of Parliament Esther Mcheka Chilenje and cabinet members. That was on Friday.

Kanjira threatened to expose corruption

Kanjira on Friday stood on a point of order to allege that cabinet ministers were going to pocket money in excess of millions once the bill to the office of President and Cabinet was passed. He was commenting after Kamlepo Kalua had made the allegations.

“It was Kamlepo who had started the allegation that ministers were pocketing money illegally. He was later challenged by leader of the house Francis Kasaira who asked Kalua to provide evidence. When Kalua took his seat after failing to provide the evidence, Kanjira rose on a point of order to keep commenting on the issue. He was stopped by the deputy speaker but he maintained that he wanted to talk as he had the evidence that Kalua was lacking,” said Malawi24’s political analyst Mike Kangwele.

Malawi24 understands that Kanjira insisted that cabinet ministers were going to pocket MK50 million each once the vote was passed. When he was asked for evidence, he claimed that he had it. However, when the deputy speaker ordered him to bring the evidence on Monday 14 March, the fight took another turn and started attacking the speaker.

“Kanjira and Mcheka Chilenje were involved in a better argument which saw him get expelled from Parliament. The deputy speaker was insisting that he provides evidence and he challenged that he cannot provide it although he had earlier said that he had the evidence, this created trouble with the two and the speaker later used her powers to kick him out of the house,” said our analyst.

For his remarks, the MP was met with boos and interruptions from cabinet ministers who kept insisting that he sits down as he never had a case to make. However Kanjira had insisted that he knew of their corruption. He even challenged that he could tell who had pocketed MK50 million in the previous month.

When the fight however took a wrong turn and became a debacle between him and the speaker, he was kicked out. He left the house expecting to appear in the house on Monday most likely with the evidence that DPP cabinet ministers are involved in corruption.

He collapsed in Church on Sunday and rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

However, a Whatsapp DPP group was once caught pants down discussing how to punish critic Blessings Chinsinga through the use of magic. Members of the group had discussed that they could silence Chinsinga in the same way they silenced one upon a time noisy activist Undule Mwakasungula who suffered a life threatening illness after being involved in serious fights with the DPP leadership.

  20. Why is that we malawians believe in witchcraft too much?this is not good at all thats why at times God is against us,he turns his back on us because of these ,how many people in malawi have died in such circumstances?Munyenyembe,Mutharika just to mention afew they died in such conditions so why are you trying to confuse people with this death?this is not good at all change your attitudes for the better this will not build malawi rather destroy.everyone who is alive has aday to die so you mean every person before his or her death they have to bid afarewell and narrate to you how the death will occur?this is not good at all you are giving people and the youngones abad picture to believe in things that are useless

    Ngati malemuyo anachita mwano, ndi momwemo. Nanga kutsutsa ndi za ku nyumba ya zomwe?

  24. The only message I get from this story is that the writer believes in magic and is trying to convince people that the MP was killed by either the speaker or any of the beneficiaries of the alleged corruption. This is one kind of stories that I don’t buy because they don’t present facts but rather the views and beliefs of a writer. Finally I don’t believe in magic so the whole story makes nonsense to me.

  25. the honourable member had a quarrel with the first deputy speaker on friday ok and on sunday the honourable member collapsed n later pronounced dead.ok to me sounds as a coincidence no foul play.what the bible says about death? You shall surely die,the bible didnot indicate time death will come,it maybe today or tomorrow all we have to do is to be on our guard so as it comes death shall find us holy on face of God.May the soul of honurable member rest in eternal peace.Amen.

  26. School me school of Journalism is this analysis or story telling? Please there is a lot that is lacking in these products. There is a lot lacking Please lectures be serious give us complete reporters not half baked ones. Thrres too much mixing of stories. Go in archives and read stories written by George Matewere.

  33. Mcheka had earlier warned against emotional and bitter exchange of words in parliament during deliberations. She advised Hon Kamulepo that bad temper and emotions are not good for their health. Later on it was late Banda fighting Mcheka before he was chased out of parliament.
    Now, remember, when Hon Lucius Banda wanted to move motion to impeach Bingu wa Mutharika on 23 June, 2005 Rodwell Munyenyembe ruled against it. Chaos arose in parliament that resulted in speaker of National Assembly Hon Rodwell Munyenyembe collapsing. He was taken to South Africa and died on monday 27th June, 2005 in South Africa hospital.
    This why Hon members ought to be aware that emotions and bitter exchange of words raises blood pressure that would result in depression. It is better to be careful always. Had it not been for the power struggle in parliament Munyenyembe should not have collapsed. Muluzi ganged up with Tembo to remove Bingu, saying Bingu had stolen presidency from UDF by forming DPP. Tembo became cheated when Hon Dumbo Lemani, alleged that Tembo was rightful winner of 2004 elections but UDF had indeed stolen votes for Bingu to win. This was enough propaganda to win support from power hungry John Tembo.
    We still have that power hungry breed in parliament currently. We still have tinpot dictators and firebreathers. Let us be very careful! Parliament is assembly point for govt business and not for fights, gradges, envy, jelousies, noise making and bad mouthing.
