Chakwera to summon Kaliwo over scathing letter

Malawi Congress Party  (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera says he will summon party secretary general Gustave Kaliwo to explain the contents of his letter which he made to the public on Thursday.

Chakwera: To summon Kaliwo

Chakwera said he wants Kaliwo to present his problems in person to the party national executive committee.

“We might not tackle some of the issues he raised because they are in court but we want to find out if that is the way we should run the party,” said Chakwera.

Kaliwo, in his nine-page scathing letter, among others asks for a convention to legitimise some positions, reinstate fired and suspended party officials and accuses Chakwera of roping in  Sidik Mia who is allegedly making parallel party structures in the south.

The MCP president said he received the hard copy of Kaliwo’s letter on Thursday morning.

Chakwera is accused of flouting party constitution by firing all those who were elected at a convention two years ago and replacing them with his faithful.

Dear Penya, Morgab, and Imran,

You are not MCP supporters, you don’t know what you do. My advise to Prof. Chakwera is to call him as you have already promised to do. if and only if he fails to concede his arrogance to the congress men during your NEC meeting. Please, immediately sack him. He is kamvuwemvuwe don’t smile to such people, Mr. President


Read the letter properly Kalio was chased away at the MCP Headquarters by Chakwera security people as he wanted to meet Chakwera for a breif discussion as it is normal for the Secretary General to do so before such a meeting. So what else did you expect him to do. he had to write him because if he forced himself in he would be beaten by his people. MCP yankhanza.


I think you all who have commented are not MCP members by virtue of your statement. You can not say Chakwera zamkanika what do you mean. MCP will conduct convention before may 2019 elections and please those who want to challenge Chakwera should get prepared. We will not allow mvundula madzi here. Stay away if you guys are crazy you did not even vote 2014 elections

be humane

If Chakwera does not want issues to be discussed in public why responding to same issues to media when he knows that media is for the public?

Signs of the times. The last convention abrogated its responsibility by delegating its powers to elect the NEC to the newly appointed President. The President was given a direction to appoint members to remaining positions in the NEC. Who contravened the constitution here? It cannot be the President alone for accepting to implement and duly implementing something that was constitutionally outside his powers. The Congress failed to demonstrate change. Instead, it confirmed that it still wants to invest powers in one person even when its own constitution has placed those powers elsewhere. Abusa was easily trapped here. What is worse… Read more »

It pains my heart to see how dictator Chakwera is running affairs of our beloved party.
Let’s mobilize ASAP and demonstrate all the way to MCP headquarters to show how fed up we’re by his dictatorial tendencies, if matching naked is what it takes so be it.Chakwera should go now


Inu chikani apa. Ana a UDF inu. You just want MCP to go UDF way.

That’s the way to go, if he refuses to come mulavuleni asatitopetse. Tikufuna chipani chirimbe titenge boma2019


Hon Msowoya please take over the presidency. Uyu Chakwera za mukanika. There is no greater opportunity than this for northerners to control MCP
