Lundazi MP ‘Wants’ COVID-19 Allowance

Lundazi Central independent member of parliament Lawrence Nyirenda on Friday asked Vice-President Inonge Wina if government will consider giving members of parliament COVID-19 allowances.

The member of parliament, whose eligibility for membership in the House has been petitioned in the courts of law by losing candidate Colonel Bizwayo Nkunika who contends that the former does not have a Grade 12 school certificate, asked his question in parliament on Friday during the Vice-President’s question for oral answer session.

However, Mrs Wina, in response, said the opposite should prevail.

“It is the MPs who should share their small allowances with the people in their constituencies who are most affected by the Coronavirus. And I don’t believe that Parliament has plans to introduce a stimulus package to support the members of parliament,” Mrs Wina said.

    Shameful! What have you done you chi Nyirenda for you to deserve Covid allowance? What about medical personnel, teachers, officers in Correction facilities? How did your people manage to vote for you without even a grade 12 certificate?

  22. MANNIX

    When the government said grade 12 is needed for MPse qualifications,they knew that certain morals are taught and planted in highschool stages which the MP might have skipped!, how can a leader ask for more money ( taxpayers) when jobs and business have been lost due to Corona virus.The greedy MP should instead share his huge salary with the affected people in his constuencey just as the VEEP answered him.He should go even further by contributing his one month salary to the course maybe the government through the Concourt would halt his case of not having a certificate.
