Some opposition political parties have applauded government in its quick efforts to react to the floods which have devastated the country leaving at least 200 dead and 200,000 more displaced.
Leaders of five opposition parties outside Parliament made the remarks after donating relief items to flood victims in Chilobwe in Blantyre.
The leaders included Mark Katsonga Phiri of the People Progressive Movement (PPM), Kamuzuz Chibambo of Peoples Transformation (PETRA), George Mnesa of MAFUNDE, and Professor John Chisi of Umodzi Party and Abusa Hellen Singh of the United Independence Party.
Speaking on behalf of other leaders, Mark Katsonga Phiri said the donation was in response to the President’s call to assist the flood victims.
Member of Parliament for the area, Allan Ngumuya said he was glad opposition parties outside Parliament had responded positively to President Mutharika’s call to assist flood victims.
