MP faults government on corruption fight


Lilongwe Msozi South Member of Parliament (MP), Vitus Dzoole Mwale, Tuesday faulted government for not doing much in the fight against corruption.

Dzoole Mwale said it is surprising that, up to now, government is yet to give convincing information on issues surrounding K577 billion audit query, which was later reduced to K236 billion.

“The DPP [Democratic Progressive Party] has failed Malawians in many ways. We have the issue of K577 billion. Up to now, no minister has been investigated or fired,” Dzoole Mwale said.


He was contributing to a debate on State of the Nation Address President Peter Mutharika delivered in the House on Friday.

Since the revelation of the audit query, there have been reports that seven Cabinet ministers were implicated but government insists that no minister is linked to the issue.

But what Dzoole Mwale said did not please MPs on government side, with some of them arguing that the MP needed to raise issues with evidence.


In the course of yesterday morning deliberation, there were a number of MPs wishing to speak on point of order, a thing which prompted First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Esther Mcheka Chilenje, to remind them that it would delay contributions by MPs to the debate.

“Let’s avoid making these unnecessary points of order,” Chilenje said.

At the beginning of Tuesday’s business, Chilenje officially told the MPs that Parliament’s website had been hacked.

She said, as a result of the development, most stakeholders are failing to access information on the website.

Chilenje, however, assured the legislators that relevant officials are looking into the matter. She said the website will be restored as soon as possible.

Parliament knew last week that the website was hacked
