Opposition MPs threaten to boycott parliament

0

Members of Parliament from opposition parties in the country have threatened to boycott parliamentary deliberations if President Mutharika continues to shield George Chaponda from facing justice.

Leader of opposition in parliament, Lazarus Chakwera has vowed to lead the demonstrations himself if Mutharika continues to take Malawians for granted.

MCP deputy general secretary Eisenhower Mkaka said that the leader of opposition has arrived at the decision inorder to bring back sanity in the country.

“Corruption is increasing day by day because corrupt officials are being protected by those in power.

“Chaponda has to explain to the country about the source of money ACB found in his house, failing which ACB has to take appropriate action.

“If that will fail to happen opposition party members of parliament will not attend parliamentary proceedings from Friday next week when parliament opens,” he said.

Mkaka added that the leader of opposition has also advised Mutharika and ACB to show some seriousness in curbing corruption.

“Nothing tangible is happening about many corruption cases involving people of high profile including; Chaponda and we are tired because it is us Malawians who are being victimised by corruption in government,” said.

Recently, Civil Society Organisations called upon the Anti Corruption Bureau to arrest George Chaponda who was left a free man regardless of the fact that he committed a crime by keeping over K170 million in his house.

Making the call, Charles Kajoloweka of the Church and Society said that the ACB made a mistake by leaving Chaponda a free man.

“Hundreds of millions were found in his house and no arrest was made? This is absurd because if it were any powerless citizen we could have been discussing another story now.

“It is an offense in Malawi to keep large sums of money and when a person comits a crime he or she is supposed to answer to the law,” he said.

Kajoloweka said that the ACB must not confuse the two crimes as one.

“Yes, they are investigating his wrong doing in the maizegate, however, he was also found with millions in house so he is supposed to be jailed because this is a seperate crime.

“The fact is that he was keeping large sums of cash and forex in his house which is a punishable offense in Malawi, for this crime he must be arrested,” he added.
