Speaker refuses to protect Mutharika

130

Speaker of Parliament, Richard Msowoya, has said Malawi president Peter Mutharika will not be protected in the house from accusations against poor leadership.

Msowoya (standing): Mutharika is not immune

Msowoya took a bold stance yesterday when  government Chief Whip, Henry Mussa,  asked the Speaker to protect Mutharika against scrutiny over how the president has handled Maize gate and the responsible line minister, George Chaponda.

Msowoya ruled that Standing Order 98 of the house was archaic. The provision dresses the president and his deputy with a thick coat against being called into the house in the course of debate.

The debate (in parliament) hinges on the conduct of the president because of that is the role that overarching role that parliament is empowered to undertake& said Msowoya.

He was of the view that the treatment of leaders as demigods who cannot be questioned over how they conduct themselves was a barrier to democracy.

&As leaders who take pride in being representatives of the people, we must open up to more scrutiny by the people we represent to enable them to monitor and question us in order to meaningfully hold us accountable& he reasoned.

Chakwera had bashed Mutharika for shielding Chaponda from prosecution in the maizegate scandal

  2. I think Muntharika has never done anything by his own decision. He fears most the DPP veterans. But it’s not too late for him, he can show himself by forgetting DPP veterans and make good history on fighting corruption.

  6. He dont deserve a protection. What h nid z a step down once n for all. Tire of his nonsense. Chanzeru chomwe aonesako nkuthandizana nditi ndunatake potinvesa ife aMalawi kuwawa. F**k

  7. kkkkkk utatenga mwakuba zimatsata amanena athu kuti uyu ai kma mwati amai apite ku kitchen then end rusults bola emwe anja lets think guys no need to protect even ovaisi omweo uselles

  8. Malawians are able to see now. This inept president has made this country to pass on the fire. Whatever he does is 99% likely to fail and education has 0.00% benefited him. He’s a stroke of hissing,a stroke no one wants and a portrate of real failure in the orb. Let him go to hell, so to finish!!

  9. He has to be protected just as any one in the house is protected. But i ages the honourable members to ask questions that will be beneficial to the nation not meant to embrace the head of state. Because the are there to make thing right not planning to embrace someone.

  10. Kodi Chuma Mukudziunjikhra Mutakalamba Kalechi Nanga Pakuti Mufa Posachedwapa Chidzakhala Chandani Kuleka Kupatsa Anuwakefe Kuti Umphawi Uchepeko Bwanji Muzisiya Kayakeni Ku Hadeko

  11. Pitala is as useless as faeces. Malawians are in tribulations because of him. Those around him are unexceptional. The civil servants receiving the meagre salary on 48, Gondwe proudly saying Join NGOs if you wanna be rich, Chaponda stealing and setting his office on fire, gvt. oppressing the opposition by murdering and threatening them, extortionate fees in public universities. The list is endless. So, should this leader be protected? Come 2019, he will see red.

  12. U idot u don’t have power to protect our professor Peter mutharika it’s only God who protect him since elected as president of Republic of Malawi

  13. zingakhale bwino kuti ichi chikhale chiyambi chakusintha kwazinthu mmalawi chifukwa ndale zopangila kusukoneza, kutchuka , kuba , kunyozana , kuphana , ndizina zambiri mudzina la demokalase zinthe kuyambira pamene tanasankha ulamuliro wazipani zambiri zinthu sizinayende bwino mpang’ono pomwe mmaganizo anga MCP chomwe ndichipani chachikulu mmalawi muno chionetsa mtundu wa amalawi mmene demokalase imakhalira osati kubwezera zoipa koma kuwauza amalawi kuti ndale amadzidziwa osakhala ngati ena ongofuna udindo koma kuyendetsa boma osadziwa

  14. Do You Know The Problem With Us {Malawians}, We Always Stay Quet On Their{readers Of Our Nation, Including The President} Feets And Beggan To Spew Some Vice Behind Their Backs. Why Cant We Stand On Their Front And Fight For Them Whom We All Know Kuti Akuphonderezedwa Pa Zao Zomwe?? Ambiri Omwe Ali Kutsogoloko Kuphatikizapo Nduna Zaboma, Sizimamva Nao Kupweteka Kwa Zinthuzi Chifukwa Amaba Nao Ndalama Za Amalawi Nkumakasungitsa Ku Ma Bank Akunja Kwa Dziko Lino. Zopusa. Zimatiwawa Ndi Amphawifetu. Ena Akamapanga Zionetsero Pokwiya Ndikayendetsedwe Ka Dzikoli, Nkumawachotseranso Miyoyo. Bullshit!!

  15. Yes God’s people always know that only justice will act to the unjust….. No!! Need of protecting this person whom calls himself peter mtharika…… It’s high time Malawians let’s stand for justice!!!!!!

  16. Nthawi zina ndimaseka nkamamva anthu akumati “osalimbana ndi zandale” pamene nkhani sikulimbana ndi zandale koma kuti pakhale chilungamo chifukwa dzikoli n’latonse and there is no sense in being unpatriotic when a few greedy people are busy plundering our tax money; when those who call themselves leaders are borrowing money on our behalf kuti ana athu adzatchime ndi kubweza ngongole when only afew benefitted. All public officers including the HE is answerable to us. Yes, all of us. Ngati mumadya nawo don’t just keep your mouths horizontal.

  17. Eeeeesh Malawi is in deep ocean with this presidency, what we are harvesting its oppression, poor education standards, poor health services in public hospitals, closure of our universities, uncondunsive working conditions for civil servants ma salaries mpaka pa 15 the other month! Is Malawi moving forward or sliding backwards? No one to be spared,,,,,,,,,this is our Malawiiii

  18. There were leaders in this same world who were being protected,kuzunza anthu ogwira ntchito mboma like mmene akuchitira iyeyo kuuza nkhalamba ya finance ija that no increament to civil servants pano anapita ndalama ankasunga mma thumba like wa kaloswe ndi nduna zonse pano kulibe !their mighty,dictatorial arrogance,kusintha mbendera zinakanika kuwatetedza,we shall see!

  19. Honoubles!!!! just know people are suffering out there and nobody is doing something to rescue them. we want change for better living conditions. Politics will stay forever but death and sorrow shall remain because of your bad reputation.

  20. He is thief, he don’t need to be protected. he has done nothing than destroying our beautiful Nation.Malawians were expecting enough from him as somebody who stayed in USA for many years but he is nothing than Dr Banda.

  21. speaker is the mcp vice how he can protect mutharika? Hahahahaha ndiye mukuwuza wanatu. Ndimomwe zimakhalila ndale zapanyasalande ndikutheka osusa kupanga protect olamula? pakuti nayenso akusakasaka mpando omweo koma tsoka sazaupeza

  22. I want to remind you government gurus that this is not Kamuzu’s one party system where people used to give too much respect even to the President’s pictures no no no no we pass that type of government we voted for democracy so don’t take Malawians for guaranteed we are tired with your people Mr President, we will continue to criticise if we’re not happy, there’s no need for Mr President to be protected he must know how to uplift our country not uplifting their pockets

  23. Who is going to protect the president?There’s a provision in the standing orders of parliament whereby the president is supposed to come and answer questions.Has he ever done that and he expect protection from the speaker.Adzadziteteze yekha for sure!!

  24. Ndale Zapamalawi Zativusya,lero Apm Wayipa Mawa Ndinu Achakweraaa,dont4get Dat Anthufe Tilibe Pabwino Apa Mukunyozana Kumbali Muli Limodzi Haging Each Other Aah Malanani Mwekha.

  25. Why protecting ineffective president; his presidency its a catastrophe. has peter done anything good apart from destroying our nation. Take a look at energy, varsity, civil servants; he said they will not be receiving change, now he is in power what has happened? As far as development is concerned peter has failed, wish we had a provision in our constitution of vote of no confidence to take him out of presidency.
