Leader of opposition Kondwani Nankhumwa who is also Vice President for Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has blasted President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera promise to construct 193 house for Members of Parliament.
Nankhumwa said this when he was responding to the State of the Nation Address made by President Chakwera on Friday last week.
âThe President surely did not do any justice to Malawians by pledging to construct official houses for Members of Parliament (MPs) especially considering that MPs are wealthier than many civil servants. Most of civil servants including teachers, nurses, police and army officers, social welfare officers and agriculture extension workers, among others live in dilapidated houses. This is an insult to poor Malawians.
âIndeed, a constituency office equipped with the necessary operational tools would have been appropriate,â said Nankhumwa.
Nankhumwa also accused Chakwera of failing to articulate a roadmap of how his government would implement its vision and a development blueprint.
