Government bribes MCP MPs with 20 million each: Chakwera silent

87

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Members of Parliament (MPs) who accused government of illegally dishing out money to selected MPs are now silent after being given K20 million each.

The MCP MPs and their leader Lazarus Chakwera will benefit from the K3.4 billion special projects fund as they will be given K20 million each to implement projects of their choice in their constituencies.

Before government agreed to the equitable distribution of the money, the MPs were describing the K3.4 billion allocation to 86 constituencies as illegal and a serious crime.

“This is a serious matter, we cannot allow that injustice. That K3.4 billion which has been given to other MPs without following procedures is a serious crime. We cannot allow discussion of this budget without discussing this injustice,” said Dowa East MP, Richard Chimwendo Banda.

On Monday, MCP MP for Dedza North West Alekeni Menyani said Minister of Finance should resign and the Anti-Corruption Bureau should investigate the issue.

He said: “It is an illegal expenditure, no money can be spent from the Consolidated Fund without the approval of the House.”

But on Tuesday government silenced the MCP MPs by distributing the K3.4 billion among all 193 legislators rather than 86 as initially planned.

Later, the legislators approved K13.6 billion allocation to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development to legalise the K3.4 billion exependiture.

  1. Mwafatsako kwambiri ku parliamentko mwayesa ngati ngati n’kwazinjoyi eti?Enanu ndalama zomaliza ndizomwezo ndithu mudyeretu.2019 Bye! Bye.

  2. Such information is disturbing. K20,000,000 is quite a lot of money by Malawian standards to be given to a single M.P as a bribe. And therefore I totally disagree that MCP M.Ps can be bribed with such a hefty amount of money. Any strong evidence from you Malawi 24, please!

    When you ask DPP sympathizers about MCP, all they will tell you is history as if they are living museums. They will tell you how MCP killed this or that in 1980 or killed this and that in 1979, what these living museums won’t tell you is how Noel Masangwi with instructions from Bingu killed Robert Chasowa, or how DPP killed Issa Njauju just a few years ago. DPP won’t tell you how Bingu killed 17 innocent peaceful demonstrators. DPP has a short memory, they cant remember the atrocities that themselves committed but without shame stand on the podium to point fingers at MCP yet they also have blood all over.
    Now, if what the DPP says about MCP is true, how should that affect me? I was born when MCP was not in power and I have no idea of the people who were allegedly murdered during Kamuzu rule. But I can easily recall the death of Njauju and Chasowa, I can also remember the killing of 17 demonstrators on July 20 and that is what matters to me.
    MCP today has new faces, Dr. Lazarus Chakwera was not MCP leader in 1980 or Mr. Mkaka was not around (as a leader) when MCP allegedly killed people, Mr. Sidik Mia wasn’t there and all the MCP NEC members were not there. This means our MCP is clean, even if it has a bad history, it doesn’t apply to the new crop of people running the party today. DPP has Nicholas Dausi who was cruel and a leader of notorious MYP. DPP has Hetherwick Ntaba who was also a notorious MCP leader, DPP has Henry Mussa, who was a cruel member of MCP. If DPP is concerned with MCP past, why are they keeping all these cruel and merciless fools in their party?
    DPP should no waste time talking about MCP past, most Malawians don’t care about it, we don’t eat history ife. what we are looking forward to is a better Malawi without corruption and nepotism, a Malawi without blackouts and with enough jobs for everyone. Osati izi zomangolembana ntchito anthu aku Mulanje and Thyolo basi.
