Kaliati slams Malawi opposition parties over Land Bill 

104

The Malawi Government has condemned the country’s opposition parties saying they have been confusing people over the contents of the recently passed Customary Land Bill.

Government spokesperson Patricia Kaliati said those against the bill are just the opposition but Malawians are now able to understand the bill.

She said the just passed Customary Land Bill is giving more powers to villagers and not burdening them as other people are putting it.

”Various chiefs have understood the bill as they are the ones who will be working with local people in committees and the bill has empowered the local people,” said Kaliati.

Kaliati: Rails at the opposition.

She added that the Land Bill has made sure that both men and women have been empowered as three men and three women will exist in the land committees which will be responsible for allocating land and approving applications.

According to Kaliati, those against the bill are not happy that President Peter Mutharika has given some of his powers to the locals and they are scared because during their time they were fond of grabbing land from the people.

She further said that the new land bill is giving chiefs more powers than ever by making them heads of land committees.

The Customary Land Bill led to controversy in Parliament last month after opposition Members of Parliament walked out of the chamber claiming there were some areas that required amendments.

Madam kaliati you are honourable so this speech is contrary to right of malawian people.Your speech it seems like you are blaming the opposion parties but is not like.Madam remember that we chosen you inorder to look after us not to give us the penarty as you are talking.We are now on multiparty system,which means we are also the controrer of our land no body can come to take over my land.Your speech some how can be fine but some how is violence.So think it nicely before you will aproach the owner of the land.

  13. You don’t start with passing of the bill and then civic educate us. It should have been the other way round and this is not the problem of opposition.
