The DPP led government is reported to have bribed lawmakers in the national assembly to reject the electoral reforms bills that were tabled in the last sitting of Parliament.

According to an opposition lawmaker, government paid each legislator K150, 000 to reject the electoral reforms bills that stir controversial in the country.

Msungama: For every “NO” to the bills govt had to pay the MPs.

Posting on his social media platform, Lilongwe City South East Constituency Member of Parliament (MP) Ulemu Msungama disclosed that for every “NO” to the bills government had to pay the lawmakers.

“After pocketing, K150, 000 for every No, they rushed back to parliament for Ant Corruption dinner,” wrote Msungama.

Malawi government has been faulted for frustrating the electoral reforms bills by delaying tabling and rejecting the bills.

Meanwhile the religious body, Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has disclosed that is to re-mobilize people to go to the streets to show anger on government dilly-dallying to the bills.

  12.

  13. What the cheapest politicians we have in our country? Selling themselves and their families and country at such cheapest price? Mmm M24 fufuzani kawiri kuti munve bwinobwino mtenge weniweni womwe anagulilidwa makosanawo not 150.000 may be it was 15.000.000 million each.? Fufuzani bwino tiziwe

  15. That opposition member of parliament is stupid, that is why I say stupid has no cure, he’s disclosed this because he wasn’t involved in the syndicate business, bullsh*t

  16. Ku Malawi kuli zipani zopotsa 50. and aeni azipanizo ena ndi ma mp…nde mumati angavomere zopusanzo pimwr akuziwa kuti the bill will affect their parties? For your own info,sionse ali muchipani amagwirizana ndi mfundo za master wawo. Zinazo amangoti yes bwana for them to find something to put bread on their table. Nchifukwa ku misonkhano ya jb kumadzaza,kwa chakweta kumadzaza,kwa Peter kumadzadzanso with same people,but when it comes for the vote,ndipamene zimaziwika kut kwinako amangofuna kudya nawo

  17. Awa nde maboza awa. How can the whole party buy someone at mk150,000? The point is: dpp used the same law to intimidate mps for instance including mps and ward councillors in 50+1% and recall provision (section 64).. Mps were intimidated by these two not zanuzo apa. But to me 50+1% should include all elected positions including mps, councillors and speaker of parliament. In addition mps should serving not more than two terms to pave way for new blood. Age limit to a elected positions atleast not more than 60

    • awa ndiwo ma bodza where in the world do such laws. apply to Mp and councillors that’s foolishness of Dpp led government iya sir osanama apa

    • #Dan it’s true wanenazo but this guy (Joseph) is stupid cox each and every country got it’s constitution when you want to contradict please think

    • Joseph has nothing ti share if understand i said ” to me” …and this is malawi not any other country u can think…nde anthu ngati joseph ndi omwe akuchitisa kuti tisapite mtsogolo

    • joseph there you hav it bro malawi is not only you. we differ in opinion and laws after all 50+1 is very associatrd wth poor contries like liberia and its also takinf them no where. think of US and UK do they use the same 50+1 “very good” electoral system?

    • 50+1 can not make one a good leader…i think first of bingu, he won with 37.4% in 2004 but if bingu is being remembered today its coz how he ran govt from 2004 to 2009. Look after landslide victory, did he maintain his leadership style? He won by 60 +%

  18. If the allegation is true, though it sounds to be fake and unfounded, it means all of our members of parliaments are rotten. And what was the benefit of the members of Parliament from the Government side? I know the Honourable members can’t sell their dignity with MK150,000.00
