Chakwera, Mia cheer up Gwanda Chakuamba

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera on Monday visited the party’s former leader Gwanda Chakuamba at his residence in Blantyre.

Chakwera was accompanied by fformer minister Sidik Mia heightening rumours that the businessman from the Lower Shire is joining the main opposition party.

Chakuamba in his heydays as a political guru was a Lower Shire giant and Mia is now regarded at the political kingpin of the Lowershire.

Pictures posted on Facebook show Chakwera greeting Chakuamba, who has been sick for sometime and the government sent him to India for medical attention for an undisclosed ailment.

The company of Chakwera and Mia should send shock shivers to Political competitors for the 2019 general election .

It has also been rumoured that Mia may be picked as running mate to Chakwera in the 2019 presidential polls as opposed to MCP Vice President Richard Msowoya.

The Chakwera and MCP communication team seemed to be playing this down as last week they posted pictures of Chakwera and Msowoya shaking hands, smiling.

Msowoya, who is Speaker of the National Assembly, has not accompanied Chakwera to the Blantyre trip.

Chakuamba recently announced at a rally he was now the ruling Demcratic Progressive Party supporter.

So, anthu akumpoto samadziwa kuti ndiwodzikonda kuposa mitundu ya zigawo zina zonse mMalawi muno? It seems the adage is true that says: “Pride is the only disease that makes everyone suffer except the one who has it”.

Mbite.

Chakwera has never talked good about Chakwamba . Shortly DPP in the the next coming 2019 campaign will be realising Chakwera s whatsapp messenges and voice recording he was talking bad about Chakwamba.
2019 DPP will win the election . Mia is a not a kingpin in the lower shire .Mia family have a very bad name among the sena s .

These are all tried and tested strategies for MCP when Chakuamba was its President. He won Lower Shire but still MCP was defeated that year. The well known fact is that we have regional parties with their die hard members. The party or merged parties with followers exceeding those other parties on regional lines will win in 2019.

As long as a northener will not rule this country it will continue be the poorest country in this world. Anthu are people like like Mr China here who hate other tribes without and justifiable reason. Can you objectively show me why you say anthu aku mpoto ndiwozikonda and asankho?

Really China’s thinking is very dwindled and tuned by these dimwits politicians who campaign along tribes and regions. Even if am a mang’anja/Lomwe, i do not subscribe to such nonsensical line of thinking. Why? It will take us nowhere. What have our ‘own’ mbuya’s and brothers we put in govt positions done for us? Not to give us free things but i mean what strategies hav they done so far to be proud of???

Without doubt formidable leadership battle lines have been drawn in MCP, wasala-wasala. It is for sure Chakwera is carefully selecting carefully what he believes is a 2019 winning team. With the Mia as a centre of influence, I don’t see Kabwira, Njobuyalema, Jumbe (they are finished politically) and others to be counted as essential in the party. Let’s wait and see Mfana Ngwengwe, Uladi Musa, Kamlepo and the rest of former PP ex- cabinet and team consolidating their power around Chakwera in due course. To remain, politically relevant, my advice to Kabwira, Jumbe, Njobvuyalema and company is to swallow their… Read more »
