The National Assembly has rejected the motion to deliberate the Termination of Pregnancy Bill which was scheduled to be tabled in the Chamber by Honourable Ngwale.
The motion to debate the bill was moved by Chitipa MP, Welani Chilenga.
Despite the rejection concerned youths have gathered outside Parliament- a distance away from the entrance in support of the motion.
Security officers have not allowed the youths to stand at the entrance of the Parliament.
“They will not intimidate us…we are here and we are not going anywhere” said Jessica Mandanda one of the youths.
And Chimwemwe Mlombwa from She Decides Malawi added: “Although am pleased that Hon. Ngwale is the one to present the motion, I am shocked and disappointed that the 43 women in Parliament did not see this as a maternal health issue as we are losing lives of women every single day”
