Leader of the house in Malawi Parliament and likely successor to be of Malawi President, George Chaponda, has denied sleeping in Parliament although pictures of him sleeping are in the public domain.
In an interview with a local paper, Chaponda is quoted as saying that the photos of him sleeping in Parliament are photoshopped and a work of his political enemies.
Chaponda who has been rumoured to be Peter Mutharika’s favourite for a replacement as DPP leader has recently been appointed leader of the house by Mutharika.
In the house on Friday, cameras of Zodiak television captured Chaponda and other Parliamentarians hitting the pillow while Mutharika was busy impressing Malawians that he was in control of the country.
The video which was later captured into images has become a subject of heavy criticism and ridicule on the Internet.
