Chakwera on spotlight over donations, ‘raping’ MCP constitution

Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera has come under spotlight to explain why he allegedly changed ownership of a donated vehicle to his party into his name and now his son is using it as a personal car.

Chakwera: Accused of abuses

Fryson Chozi, who is leader of self proclaimed Concerned Citizens movement has been giving details of how a vehicle, registration number BS 3819 was donated to MCP in the run up to the 2014 general election for campaign purposes.

“The most surprising things is that Honourable Chakwera has changed the ownership from the party to his name. His son is now using it as a personal vehicle. This is not the transparency and accountability he is holding the government,” he said.

He said another vehicle MJ 6534 was donated by Salima central MP Felix Jumbe in the run up to the election but now Chakwera’s family uses it as a family vehicle.

Chozi also alleged Chakwera, who is Leader of Opposition in parliament, is failing to account for money donations and funding the party gets from parliament.

He also accused Chakwera of maladministration, saying he uses Eisenhower Mkaka as acting secretary general and party publicist, unconstitutionally kicking out Gustave Kaliwo and Jessie Kabwila respectively.

“Even Mkaka’s position of second secretary general is unconstitutional, it does not exist in the party constitution,”he said.

Mkaka dismissed the allegations as untrue.

He said all party donations and funding are well accounted for and that the party constitution gives powers to party president to fill vacancies.

Has this complaint come from MCP? Why should all this come from DPP…………… are the owners of the Party not aware? You started with Chakwera building a house, nothing came out of it, now you’re on a car allegation, why can’t you concentrate on how you are to curb corruption that is so rampant, DPP ?

This is one of cheapest propaganda in recent times..Dr Chakwera is not controlling state or public funds neither MCP does.What happens in MCP is for MCP only. MCP just like any other party has members who can know better what is happenning in MCP and they are the only rightful people to be concerned, Its impossible for you to raise issues of concern for MCP.,Only fools or senseless opponents of Chakwera can see some sense in what you are saying. otherwise you are being self exposed to bare foolishness .What you have said can atleast hold eaer if from MCP… Read more »

Anyamata ena omvetsa chisoni pa Malawi pano ndi amenewa. No vision at all. Any road takes them there. Why waste your time? Find something better to do for yourself, children and family.
