He should have indubitably chosen another forum and most definitely appropriate time to take a nap, otherwise it was a comedy of error for the newly appointed Leader of the House, George Chaponda to be caught on camera fast asleep.
And it could not be worse than being caught taking a nap while your appointer is busy addressing the very same forum you are appointed to lead. Maybe he was allowed considering his new position.
Chaponda dozed into sleep while President Peter Mutharika was busy delivering State of the Nation Address during opening of 46th budget session of Parliament on Friday morning.
Is he a type of a leader one would love to have? It’s doubtful. And it won’t be a surprise if Parliamentarians ignore his authority, for he surely lacked etiquette considering the timing of his sleep.
Mutharika on Thursday appointed George Chaponda, Minister of Agriculture, as Leader of the House in Parliament replacing Francis Kasaila, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Corporation.
Surprisingly, it was not only Chaponda who got bored by Mutharika’s long speech based on some of the pictures (below) captured on Zodiak television.
