Chakwera says Goodall, Nankhumwa should resign

Leader of Opposition Lazarus Chakwera has demanded the resignation of Minister of Finance Goodall Gondwe and Local Government minister Kondwani Nankhumwa over the K4 billion allocation to Members of Parliament (MPs).

Making his closing remarks at the end of the Mid-Year Budget Review on Friday morning,

Chakwera: Goodall, Nankhumwa should resign.

Chakwera said government, through the Finance Minister, flouted procedure and violated the law in its acquisition and distribution of the 4 billion Kwacha.

He then called for the resignation of Gondwe who allocated the funds and Nankhumwa who was tasked with choosing the MPs to benefit.

“We demand that the two Ministers in question, out of respect for the Office of the President and this House, should tender their resignations,” he said.

The opposition leader also urged the Anti-Corruption Bureau and Parliament to investigate the actions of the Finance Minister and the Minister of Local Government “to determine, with evidence, the nature and extent of their wrongdoing and whether they took these actions on their own or on orders from the President.”

Gondwe allocated K3.4 billion for special projects to 86 MPs, most of whom were Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislators while the other MPs helped the DPP government to block the Electoral Reforms Bills last year.

The expenditure was deemed illegal since it was not approved by Parliament but on Tuesday the MPs legalised it after government agreed to share the money among all 193 constituencies.

Commenting on this, Chakwera said the opposition felt duty-bound to stop what he thinks amounts to an act of theft.

He however noted that Gondwe cornered the opposition by forcing them to choose between minister’s act of criminalizing the government illegally and the opposition’s act of decriminalizing the government legally.

“We did not feel that in would be in the nation’s interest for the Government to be reduced to a common criminal, for if The State is criminalized, our very Republic would collapse.

“So in the interest of the nation, we have acted to make sure that there is no record in the history of this House that we allowed the illegal act of spending Malawians’ taxpayers money without Parliament’s approval,” he said.

He added that the normalisation of the allocation was aimed at ensuring that the money should be used as a resource for the development of all Malawians, “not as a trophy to reward political exploitation.”

  6. Chakwera is aprofesional failier,like alsene wenger i dnt think he can run this country,aleader suppose to settle his family so if he fails how can he runs nation?

  7. There’s no point of asking either of the two to resign. I thought Chakwera would refuse the money or if it’s already deposited in his bank account would return it to where it came from. But alas, he is holding it back. What does this entail? All M.P’s are corrupt. People need to know that M.Ps compensate themselves in that way. They make deliberate noise as if they are pulling in opposite direction, whilst, they are together. At this moment all M.P’s have benefitted regardless of their affiliation. They know truly that the majority of them, come 2019 will not return to august house. So they have started rewarding themselves. It’s a shame to an electorate.

  8. Kuchipata mankhgwala kulibe akuti boma ndalama Lilibe pa no akuti ndalama ZIMENE AGAWANAZO ZINALIBE NTCHITO NDIYE CHAZELU CHIMENE ANACHIONA NDICHONGOGAWANA

  15. I wonder why all these positions and all silly remarks uttered just to join the bandwagon spending tax payers money on the flipside on good-for-nothing….. Ever since l started hearing all these, l have never heard such such has resigned following such such demands to resign….. I verily conclude this is no better than just to remain silence, u would still receive your allocation as per constitution stipulates(maybe l wouldnt write this comment)…. Am always irked by these politicians way of conduct

  17. I think chakwera hs misd the point he cud hv called that big fish called gasolin to resign, not his dogs. He is the one behind all this mess.

  18. I suggest Chakwera should resign as well, i believe he is one of the MPs who will benefit from K4 billion there is no record telling us tjat Chakwera suggested otherwise of how the K4 billion which is dubiously allocated should be properly used. He could have championed that the money should not be shared. So Chakwera should not point fingers to others.

  23. Listening to the Minister of Finance laying tbe blame on how the money was to be shared to the Minister of Local Government today in parliament you can never stop speculating that there was some clandestine motive behind the selection of the 86 constituencies
    This scandal is enough reason to consider their relevance to their positions there reflecting badly to the office of the President.
