Notice to government in petition against Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development.


By Rhoda Kamchacha

Mr President, Mr Speaker, MPs:

Sirs/Madames, I the undersigned and youth of Malawi and patriotic citizens are speaking out in total disbelief that the common sense in Malawians is not common with honourable members.

The most important question is: will words for once be followed by real actions not just sugar quoting measures?

It’s a shame to issue this letter, to push for an obvious issue in another petition seeking to ask you honourables to protect our money by not giving it to Dr Chaponda before investigate on Foreign Affairs Cashgate and UNGA trip.

We all want to end this hunger and am sure the best way to do it is not to trust a thieve or a watchman who has failed before with the lion share of our money.


So far the Ministry of Agriculture has proved to be very prone to cashgate, and if we are not careful the Minister [Chaponda] will have it all looted. He might not be the one looting per say but he has failed us in the past and should not be trusted.

What Chaponda is doing at the Ministry of Agriculture already reflects exactly what happened during his time at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; he was in-charge of embassies to start with and , again, he was involved in “another scandal during a trip to the United Nations General Assembly.”

The nation remembers that Capitol Hill told us they only took 20 people in an interview with The Nation which Chaponda confirmed despite being a lie. Why are we still keeping such a person? Why are we promoting him? What are the youth learning from this? What are we communicating to tax payers?”

Tired of your words which were being launched as pre-election propaganda? Then show us action against your extravagance without considering the poor man.

Rhoda Kamchacha (Youth for Positive Change)
