Addressing a political rally at Bembeke School ground in Dedza, the constituency of former MCP president John Tembo, Chakwera said his party intends to establish a special committee of independent members so that any one having issues with the party can go and complain.

“I am tired of hearing each and every party issue to be  referred in court,  there are some issues which can be settled amicably just within the party hierarchy,” said Chakwera.

Chakwera said even in the government they have an Ombudsman who is a referee and make quick governance administrative decisions.

Of late MCP has been locked with back to back images of civil war which is currently being championed by the former district chairmen.

The Chairmen are accusing MCP leadership of raping constitution alleging that they are exercising powers outside their mandate.

Commenting on the forthcoming bye elections in Dedza  South Ward and Mchinji, Chakwera canvassed voters to vote for MCP candidates.

Malawi is tired of begging due to maladminstration of the current regime of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP),he said.

“This shows that this government has failed so why should you people of Dedza give votes to a crumbled leadership,” said Chakwera.

On water and electricity, the MCP leader accused the Government of their failure to address the problems.

Chakwera said “We always give solutions to problems locking this country but this Government does not listen to alternative views,  but the problem is that at the end Malawians are the ones suffering.”

    Iwe Chakwera! Your so called independent tribunal will be challenged. The MCP has mechanisms already in place to handle disputes which you blatantly ignored. You Chakwera are the problem. You have to go!

    No political leader was ever heard suggesting solutions to the problem of Magetsi and Madzi or else was ever heard explaining where are problems coming from starting from the current leadership itself. Thats why I am always sceptical even with our opposition leaders. Do they know where the problem is, or they think they will look at where the problem is when they get into government? That gives impression that whoever takes over from Mutharika will not solve these problems. We need leaders who should convince Malawians how better are they than Mutharika with their agenda to change Malawi not just poking holes in current administration and then say but I can do better than him. HOW WILL YOU DO IT BETTER THAN HIM? This is a question politicians should be answwering

      Mr be humane, the issue of Magetsi and Madzi could easily be solved if there was no cashgate. Assume that DPP govt was ready to recover K236 billion stolen by those 7 ministers and allocate part of it to revamp magetsi and madzi it could not resolve the problems? What DPP govet knows is to siphon MG Account No. 1. If we don’t resolve these forget about Malawi developing.

    Reverend so called Chakwera why not shut your mouth. You are failing to run your party what more with the Government.
    Over my dead body you will never rule this country.Go back to the pulpit that’s where you belong.
    Mind you Peter is back you thought he is dead you started celebrating you have failed Mcp back to the bench for 20 coming years.
    Mark my word of you don’t replace Chakwera

    Rev Chakwera you know what to do Chatinkha Chizdanja Nkhoma put some senses in you . Let me remind you what she said bring the old NEC back , stop firing those with difference opinion with you . and call for the convention . In MCP everything is handled at the convention whether to establish a tribunal or to change some things in the MCP constitution ..From last week i am following Chatinkha Chidzanja . If you dont handle her with care she will destroy you .She has already started cutting you in pieces , she seeems to be more tactful and matured politician more than you Sir .Personal advise think twice before you make any action , please dont let those small boys like Mkaka cheat you. things are changing out here on the ground

    1. Giling\'ande says:

      What a candid advice. If I were Chakwera I would take it.

  5. Grace Nkhono says:

    Those who support Rev Chakwera they dont really know who he is . The guy has been exposed , the 1st person to expose this guy was Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma and 1st i thought she is crazy but listening to her very careful then i knew and and realised that this Rev Chakwera will not take us anywhere 2019. He is very greedy , pompous . Malawi is not ready for you Rev Chakwera . Go back to the drawing board . Those issues you are fifghting Chatinkha and the likes its very simple but coz of Rev arrogance and lack of political skills thats why MCP is in that mess .

  6. Zikhale Banda says:

    Rev Chakwera you have failed to handle issues in your party .How can you handle the entire government .wasphana nawo Boma . You better go back to the church if they will accept you ndikuba kwako kuja , arrogance and pompous . I thought you have changed . we at the Assemblies of God timangokusungila ulemu otherwise tikanakuthothola kale . We knew you cant make it in politics .

  7. zapngaphee says:

    The problem with MCP is Rev Chakwera himself . He lacks political leadership skills . The tribunal will not do much coz he is the root cause of the problems MCP is facing . 1. How can he fire those with dissenting views . 2. He is raping our constituition left and right . 3. Rev Chakwera is tilting towards dictitatorship Chatinkha was right . Rev Chakwera should humble himself and take a lead not by firing but reaching out the problem is he cant do that coz of greed ( he loves money too much ).
    Lets go to the convention to solve all the squabbles

    To be clear with anyone who has an opinion and has a means of commenting (I.e keypad and Internet connection) try and keep your emotions and opinions as sophisticated as possible. If you are to undermine Dr Chakwera please advise us on who could be a better leader for not only the party but the country as well. Mind you, I am currently of the opinion that this man could be the man of action this county needs.

    He is talking about establishing a tribunal for the just the party if any party member has problems – what more if he is leading the country. Just saying.

    1. Giling\'ande says:

      Mega Mind, you don’t know what you are saying. Will that tribunal be in line with the MCP consitution? How will the independent members be selected? It’s better to start telling Chakwera the truth. He has to change his leadership style and humble himself. Some of us knew a long time ago that he can’t make it in politics but we kept quite to give him a chance. As of now I am very disappointed supporter. To cap it all, if he fails again in 2019, he will have saved his two terms as the opposition presdent. We will have to start thinking of a powerful replacement. As for Chakwera, until he humbles himself, I don’t see us getting into power.

    A dpp zakukanikani khalani pansi ndipo musalankhulenso. Kozani magetsi andi madzi basi a Malawi akuvutikatu. Munya muona

  10. BE HUMANE? I wonder why you are always against Chakwera? I think you have personal problems and you are the one who is brain washed. TRUE TO WHAT CHAKEERA SAID DPP had been advised and given alternative solutions to most of the problems we are facing but it (dpp) pays a deaf ear. To dpp being advised is being against the Lomwe tribe, it is busy stealing our money at capital hill and eliminating critics. I once advised you all dpp blind followers to learn a lesson from the demise of your chitsulo chanjanje, mose walero, mpulumutsi and so many numerous names you accorded him. You blind followers indirrectly corrupted that man and he started feeling above everything what followed? Infa yowawa. GOD GAVE US GOOD RAINS IN 2008 AND BUMPER YIELDS NOT BINGU! Today you are doing the same fully corrupting Peter Mutharika, definately you will face the consequences until you learn and understand the truth. WHY DPP SUPPORTERS HATE THE TRUTH? SUBJECTIVE POVERTY.

    1. Khadikhwe says:

      Binwell Kachikopa, do you want to tell me that DPP is for lomwe? that’s tribalism my dear and this thinking will not help mcp. You mean there are no lomwes in mcp?

      Malawi will not change because ordinary citizens don’t trust any political party. Another thing Malawians have never experienced independence and freedom. Since independence they have been having leaders who deny their freedom. They came from colonial to dictorship to what they call democracy which does not function in the sense of it. When I read comments I feel sad the way people reason. Very low. Instead of understanding the main issue they insult and attack oppositions and NGOs.This is the reason nothing is gonna chang. Majority of Malawians are in educated of everything. They don’t know what is their rights. This is why those educated ones take them as they do. Look we
      Kamuzu Banda educated, Muluzi UN educated as he was called and first Democratic leader. People blamed him for not being educated. Then came Bingu Muntharika economist educated but nothing changed instead he made himself very rich. JB was called a woman and chashgate but forgetting how much Bingu stole. Now Peter professor lived in most rich country still nothing changed. What is wrong then? U can not have a nation ruled by family members and tribe. Look at any country which is ruled by family what achievement have they made? Syria Cuba, DRC etc. Malawi’s suffering is based on how they Malawian think. Go to TZ they say we are Sahilis. Not Alomwes. Muntharikas used tribe to get support and since Malawi is built by tribalism they won. This government of self enrichment don’t
      Care of the nation and people. All they wait for is aid. So they can steal. How long are they going to help Malawi? 52 years of self rule nothing is developing in Malawi. Electricity is very important in the country. How can we invite investors without electricity and water?

  12. be humane says:

    I thought Chakwera would give the solutions or repeated what they have been telling government for the people to appreciate that this is not listening government. Koma kungoti ife Boma timaliuza kuti chani? that is politics a Chakwera you joined a wrong battle you like it or not court battles in politics are order of the day whether you set a commitee or not, tribunal or not. This speech shows that this man is not really into politics. He is still on the pulpet. Long time to go for Mr. Chakwera. I know ena apa muwombera mmanja zimene Chakwera wanena ngakhale palibepo nzeru koma poti you were brain washed so no wonder. Paja mumakonda kutukwana, yambanipo kutukwana to show your percentage of salvagism
