Taking his turn member of Parliament for Machinga Likwenu David Lally added his voice commending the DPP administration for stability in the country’s economy.

Lally noted that the DPP led government has made great economic strides as evidenced by stability of the Kwacha since 2014, single digit inflation rate translating into stable prices of goods and services.

“Mr Deputy Speaker Sir, the stability of the Kwacha is a good sign of good economic management by the DPP led government, if there have been any movements then very minimal,” Lally explained.
