    This shows MCP is becoming more and more strong in all regions. We are MCP those who want disrespect the party linking with one party regime are puppets they were not there then if they were there they couldn’t have spoken rubbish. This country was warm heart of Africa. We love Kabwira she will be the strongest Minister in the MCP government come 2019. There is no one in DPP to compare with Kabwira tell me who. She is the finest woman so far in Malawi and this will be resolved and go. I know DPP simumagona naye tulo. You will be finish 7 Ministers all thieves what are you saying chipani chakuba ndi kupha cha Deadly Peoples Party.

    If you have nothing to comment just keep quite. Was it MCP chasing Winiko in Mulunje? I f you are saying chipani chakumpha , was it MCP who killed Chasowa,& Njeuju, list is long. You think Kabwira was forced to join MCP? MCP has four corner stones nobody is bigger than the party this is why it is not a family party where leadership is handedover to relations, brother to brother , father to son. Kabwira is MCP these problems will go and mudzayambaso kumutukwana inu a DPP pano abakudyerani kaye.

    Ms Kabira-Kapasula should have seen this coming, if she’s as smart as she claims or projects to be. What a shame for MCP to treat her like this! Considering that she left a cushy lecturer position, and a high profile role at Chanco. And MCP are now treating her like this; humiliating her in the open? In her own back yard, no less?
    Her big head must be almost exploding from the political pressure, abale (friends).
    She tried to make up with MCP: the very party that persecuted her religious sect and her family, during the murderous reign of HKB. But, in the end, MCP would have non of the making up. Like trying to kiss the tail of a croc that just almost chopped you in half! Stupiiiiiid!
    She can’t say she was not warned before joining MCP: The Party will not suddenly get off its historical tendencies without a revolution. Humans and their organizations do NOT change just like that. Almost never.
    Where to turn next for her?
    Word on the street is that she’s now scared for her life; threatened by adherents of the same MCP with the most despicable record of human rights. Number 1 abuser Party, which had no respect for human life.
    Can oChakwera really change that mentality?

    That’s a sign of failed leadership. I bet Chakwera is running the MCP just like he ran his failed campaign to become president of Malawi. And that effectively is the telltale that if this dude were to become president, he would have major difficulty taking on the affairs of Malawi. He is not presidential material.
