Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture chairperson Sameer Suleman has accused Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Members of Parliament of sabotaging an inquiry into the loss, by government, of hundreds of millions of Kwacha, to a UK-based firm, in an Affordable Input Program (AIP) deal.
But the MCP, through its spokesperson Maurice Munthali, has accused Suleiman of making wild allegations about its lawmakers.
Early last month, Parliament instituted a joint committee to look into the matter as well as other issues of national importance, including the vanishing of 14 trucks of maize belonging to the National Food Reserve Agency (NFRA).
But Suleman told in an interview that the joint committee has not finalised meeting some key stakeholders.
He said surprisingly when the stakeholders were called for the second time their colleagues from MCP barred them from being interviewed.
