Govt maintains nobody died of hunger

Uladi Mussa

Railed at govt.

The Malawi government has stuck to its stand that no one died of hunger in the country, and has challenged those with evidence of the deaths to come forward and prove it.

When making his response to the state of the nation address made by President Peter Mutharika on Friday, acting President for the opposition Peoples Party (PP) Uladi Mussa claimed that ‘a lot Malawians have died of hunger’.

According to Mussa, the hunger which he said the Mutharika government has failed to fight has seen many people dying and said it was unfortunate that government has chosen to do ‘nothing’. towards the situation.

Mussa then called on the government to address environmental issues to mitigate the impact of climate change.

George-Chaponda

Chaponda says no one died of hunger in Malawi.

But leader of the House George Chaponda standing on a point of order challenged Mussa to bring forward the evidence of the people he claims have died of hunger in Malawi.

Chaponda who is now the Agriculture Minister maintains that the reports that some Malawians have died of hunger are not true and asked the opposition to take facts to the August house and not bring ‘misleading’ information.

In January this year, Malawi24 reported of a death of a man in Mzimba district whom the medical personnel confirmed died to starvation, but the government was quick to refuse the matter.

A report released last year by Malawi Vulnerability Assessment Committee (MVAC) showed that 3 million Malawians were expected to experience hunger during the current growing season.

However fear has erupted that the current figures of hunger victims are likely to go to as high as 8.5 million by the end of this year.

  1. Mr Kachali, I think its insane saying dat to the republic. Are u telling the nation dat the gornment dont knw dat people in da country are starving wih hunger? I think the government is aware of dat, bt its just ruthless our leaders and poor governnance. Its stupidity of the gvernment waitin people to die then saying in Malawi there is shortage of maize. Just go in districts where maize are caltivated and see hw people are buying a bag of it. Inu mukamadya ndi kumakhuta dont come on air and say such nonsese.

  2. Oh, so it’s OK if people are starving, but not dying of starvation, is it? The arrogance of these well-fed MPs continues to amaze me 🙁

  7. Hunger is real and people will still die. Do you want evidence? Come and accompany me to my villages graveyard i will show u the graves of those assassinated by man-made hunger

  8. Ok you can not accept that some people have died of hunger., fyne we can not give evidence because those with evidence have already died. If you think there is no hunger in Malawi. why did the Gvt bought maize from Zambia. I hope you will also refute that we had maize from Zambia bcoz some died. If you accept that some people died of hunger , we are not going to impeach you but let Gvt have proper planning on maize storage and availability to the people

  11. Starving yes, lots of people have starved, but not dieing, no death was recorded. Prove it to the Government rather than singing a song of blaming without evidence.

  15. You start that storry jst becouse the people are harvesting there crops.If you are tied with sleeping in paliament find something else to talk.Lets talk about killing the albinism why gvt do not say something idiot.

  16. If one cannot accept that people saw him in deep slumber whilst the Boss was delivering an all important speech, would we then expect any grain of truth from the same. Why can’t they check with the police PRO for Mzimba District, they demoted? What do you want to achieve, if I may ask?
