Chatinkha blames Mia on MCP civil war

Rubble-rousing  politician Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma has lashed out at former minister Muhammad Sidik Mia as the one causing Malawi Congress Party (MCP) wrangles,  confirming  what the party’s Secretary General Gustave Kaliwo raised in his letter to president of MCP Lazarus Chakwera.

Chatinkha: Mia should use normal procedures to join MCP or else form his party

Chatinkha: Mia should use normal procedures to join MCP or else form his party

Chidzanja Nkhoma, who is now calling herself as Permanent Member of the MCP , said this during a media briefing she jointly held with some district chairmen of the party to react on the court rulling that has reinstated them Into the party after she was dismissed with other members.

She said Mia, who is tipped to join the MCP, has been causing all problems saying he is bankrolling the rebuilding of party thereby creating parallel structures.

“If he has a lot of money let him form his own party. Others have done that before. If he wants to join MCP then he must follow the rights procedures,” said Chatinkha.

She went further claiming that Mia has been calling MCP leaders to a meeting at his house when he has no power to call for the meeting, advising him to come in open and join the party.

Chatinkha also alleged that Mia is proposing to change MCP symbol of Tambala and slogan of Kwacha.

In a letter to Chakwera, the party’s Secretary General Gustave Kaliwo wondered what relationship the party has with Mia.

Kaliwo said the relationship between Mia and the party was “causing confusion” and described it as “the worst kept secret”.

“You are aware that there are party officials that are working with Hon Sidik Mia. There is talk of parallel structures being established in readiness for his coming to the party.

“I have no problem whatsoever welcoming Hon Sidik Mia and working with him in the party. He just needs to join openly and work with us openly. The current working relationship with him is causing confusion and leaving people wondering as to who is fooling who?” he said.

    I do not subscribe to the idea of holding early convention on the basis of electing new leadership. It has been said that Chatinkha and friends earlier presented the issue of dictatorship in the party as the sole reason of holding the election of which to me it does not hold water.

    On the other hand i agree with Chatinkha that if Mia intends to join the party then let him come in the open and join us. He should not start behaving as if he is bigger than the party and trying to be calling shots without officially declaring his position. Others argued that Mia has a right to silently join the party just as anyone else can do. But let us be realistic, Mia is not an ordinary person as far as Malawi politics is concerned and as such he may not have that privilege of silently joining a party. We need to sought out this issue with urgency because we cant tolerate having parallel structures within the party. That is a recipe for commotion at the next coming convention. Surely we need people like Mia to add value to the party but they should respect the culture of the party and the existing leadership. If he has ambition of a leadership position then MCP is open party and the most democratic party that is capable of holding a free and fair election at a convention. However he has to prove to the party that he is the material worth to lead our party in whatever portfolio.

    Finally i agree with the logic of seriously considering changes to the party slogan and symbol. Honestly i personally feel that these elements have outlived their purpose and are not necessarily in tandem with the democratic set up. We need to seriously discuss the matter and this is the opportune time to do that considering that if we may have the changes then time will be necessary to ensure that Malawians are familiarised with them.

    Women of chatinkha’s motives have been dangerous to society even in times of king Ahab, king Herod and upto the time we leaving in. There was Jezebel, Herodias ……… and now we have chatinkha. If women of this calibre are not eradicated in time, the can prove to be like a cancerous tumor.

  4. POLY POLICE says:

    Its now clear that this lady is not ready to face competition. In the first place a political party is a public institution and no one person should claim ownership. No wonder she called herself an MCP landlord or landlady. This nonsense is what has kept the mighty party in opposition for years now. If you want to MIA to form his own party then why are you not doing the same? You are a shameless woman who still believes in old ways of doing politics. That’s why I still don’t believe your agenda. You must have a bad motive behind your stubbornness. Your stubborn fellows have since changed and are moving forward. Ukhala choncho.

    A Chidzanja musemphana ndi mipando yonona. If you are intelligent, start working with Chakwera immediately. Soon their will be elections. DPP UDF or PP aren’t as strong as they were two years ago. Which leaves MCP in a better position to carry the day. My advice, swallow your pride and apologise to Chakwera.

  6. Waphuma says:

    kodi amai inu olo mutayima pa u president wo angakusankheni ndani? You are useless. Period. How many problems do you have? I thought you were complaining of Chakwera and how come you are worried of MIA. Is MCP your own party as a property? Despite that maybe your father was in MCP doesnt warrant you as the owner of the party….JZU has a son but we dont see or hear about him trying to overpower Chakwera. You will be used and abused as a condom…palibe chanu ami inu. Yambani chipani chanu inuyo …why clinging to MCP if you are not happy with leadership?

    Whether you are permanent member or senior party member, your acts are showing that you know nothing about diplomacy….!!

    Why do you run to the media? Have you diplomatically ever tried to discuss the matters you have with the leadership? Some of us may agree that Chakwera might be a problem, or he is a “problem”, but, and seriously even historical best politicians, the likes of Mandela would have never accepted the route and or approaches you are employing!!

    Secondly, ndaletu chemwali sizitengela kuyamba kale ayi!! Zikanakhala zimenezo ndiye Dr Chilima sakanakhala Vice President tu!! Kenanso, nditengelepo mwayi, chemwali siyani kutchula ma membala a MCP amene anatisiya (may their souls RIP) pa zomwe tikuchitazi kuopa kutukwanitsa malemu!!

    Chemwali, kodi ena sakayamba kutifunsa zenizeni zooneka ndi maso zomwe mamembala amenewo (makolo anthuwo) anachita initiate pa Malawi, other than being a party member or leader basi? Inu zoona muili nazo zonena, kapena zoloza zomwe anachita pa Malawi pano, or they just filled a vacancy?? Kukhalatu pa udindo chemwali is one thing, and to contribute or initiate something worthy mentioning is another…..!!!

    Inetu ndikuona kuti chakula apa ndi dyela! Enanu mukuonekeratu kuti mwatumidwa ndi aaaaaaaaawo amene akuopa kuti Mia mukumutchula apayu akalowadi MCP ndiye kuti yalakwa ndipo chao palibe! Ndiye chimene anthu amenewa achita ndiye kupeza anthu aakulu kukamwa (ndipo ndi inuyo) kuti musokoneze zimenezo ndipo Mia asalowe MCP. Zikuonekelatu chemwali kuti Miayo ndi anzanuwo mukumuopa ndipo kwinaku ndikuona ngati ndi chifukwa mukuona kuti sakudziwani!! Inu mukamati Chakwera ndi Mia are organizing parallel structures, inuyo ndi anzanuwo do you have publicity structures to organize MCP media conferences!!

    Koma mayi ndinu omvuta!! Komatu kunena zoona chochititsa ulesi ndi chimodzi….. kuvuta ndi utsogoleri ndi zinthu ziwiri zosiyana!! Mind you enviable politicians, the likes of Mandela, Obama, Angela Merkel of Germany were and are (respectively) neither vocal or trouble makers!! Zanuzi ndi zinanso iziiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!

    Chakwera is the most beautiful person with beautiful ideas. He was the second person to appoint a running mate from the north after Gwanda Chakuamba. If you want to win elections you need to look for tactics and prudent ways of winning come 2019. If Chakwera appoints Mia as running mate so good because since Gwanda left MCP there is no one in South popular to woo support. Mia is good and he is welcome to MCP. Chakwera is the loved by the whole nation and is making presidency of this country come 2019. Bravo Chakwera Bravo Mia come and rescue Malawians before we sink.

  17. be humane says:

    Muhope, describing MCP in that way then what do you think makes it fail to come back to power in 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009, 2014 almost in 5 elections now and doomed to a 6th failure in 2019? Your views please

    1. Achimidzimidzi says: terms of delivery DPP has failed on governance principles of transparency and accountability
      2. delivery of promises DPP instead of fighting corruption they shielding corruption
      3. Economy so far no economic activity has flourished but diminishing
      4. No social service or public service has improved

      However the reason is that DPP was borne in government and is still in government so they don’t know that what they are doing is bad while MCP was in government now opposition are able to make see the effects of poor governance.

      Take note, this does not mean DPP are bad individually, no but collectively they have a challenge

    2. Do you disagree with my description and would you beg to differ? In 94 it is clear the whole movement that brought about the elections was of the intent to oust the party in first place (anyone should know this)

      In 99 and 05 it was guaranteed for UDF to continue ruling as Malawian were being blinded by quantitative easing, outraged IMF and World Bank loans of which the negative impact was not made transparent to the unaware citizens.

      The late Bingu was in my opinion one of the greatest leaders we have had in not only Malawi but Africa. He managed to economically and socially balance the country and had plans (power hungry Malawians like John Tembo had no chance) but still in 09 MCP still held its ground in the elections. After the death of the late Professor Malawi was facing a new paradigm – a Man like chakwera was the best fit to lead but he only has the majority support of the main MCP members in the frontline Malawians were being misled by the propaganda of PP and DPP with the likes of DPP fronting to be the one party which highly considers the impoverished population with its Maize emblem and so fourth.

      Now we clearly see that Malawian are tired (IMF reports that any country that has per capital income of less than 800 usd is ought to revolt against the government of given the chance) we are just lucky that Malawi is a very peaceful country. However ever since the death of late Bingu the situation has been getting worse and Malawians have gone beyond acknowledging this with corruption being abudunt and so transparent (no party has good name in this fate) our current leader seemed to have wanted the position without a plan.

      So if Malawians are to vote for the sake of just trying then clearly MCP holds the best chance. And besides we have no reason to Undermine Chakwera – if he was in for the money being president for a whole Union of churches for almost 30 should say a lot about his interest.

  18. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Go away, you unproductive people. Both of you Nkhoma and Kaliwo show me if you have any support in the south like Mia. You are lazy and full of jealous.The world over if someone is inefficient or neglects her/his duties he is immediately removed for the sake corporate mission.

    After all you are lying to the media that MCP membership is divided into permanent, temporary or seasonal and you think we will sympathize with you. NO way. MCP is looking for achievers.

    Its high time that you are replaced by new blood. Remember JOHN TEMBO, he went and it was Dr Chakwera who managed to replace him when all of you were failing to demonstrate leadership.

  20. kanchenga says:

    If my memory don’t fail me your argument was that Chakwera has failed to run the party and that he is showing dictatorial tendency in handling party matters. During that time Mia was not an issue. Infact the Mia issue is just coming in the very mediate past. What’s wrong with you. Mia doesn’t have to declare to anybody that he has joined MCP just like you. You don’t own anybody an explanation as to why you will be an MCP member for ever.Mia has joined MCP silently and other members are prepared to work with him. If he wants any leadership position he will contest during an election. Why should that be a problem to anybody. MCP doesn’t believe because your father was minister in MCP government you should dictate the way it should be run. We are not hand clappers in MCP. If Chakwera has failed we will replace him at an MCP conversation organised by MCP for the good of all MCP supporters. We shall not be intimidated by any court order. a chidzanja you can be MCP forever nobody cares about that. The question is who in MCP is prepared to work with you. Traitors like you who freitnise with the enemy command no respect in MCP. Jumbe may have had a point in what he was saying but just by associating with the enemy no supporter of MCP was prepared to listen to him. They actually called him Kholokolo. The moment we heard that the court has ruled in absentia that MCP should conduct a conversation and that the ruling was made because Kaliwo failed to attend the court hearing for no reason at all we knew that he either had a hidden agenda or he was not competent as a public leader. Both situations are not acceptable in MCP. No wonder MCP started looking for a replacement to represent the south. That is what clever leaders do. They do not tolerate inefficiency. So Mia it is. You can cry as loud as you care to nothing changes its Mia not inefficient Kaliwo.

    1. A very excellent narration by Mr. Kanchenga ????

    A Mia bwelani basi,, akwiya ndi Mfiti

  22. MCP is the only party that has credibility in Malawi at the moment today. Since the inseption of democracy and multi party in Malawi MCP has been the only party that has not been prevy to showcase its capabilities with this instrument of democracy – although MCP is today one of the longest and most principled party in Malawi if not south east Africa.
    if we are to look at this in sight of patriotism and the courtesy of appointing the right leadership we should understand that although all the current parties (i.e. UDF, DPP and PP) have showed us the fruit of the work of their hands and fruit thereof -this does not necessarily mean all the major figures that have been associated with these parties inherit their deplorable, corrupt and regressive legacies. In my political and leadership accumen I think this parallel structure phenomenon needs to be fixed as soon as possible and we should be very careful in how we uphold our principles. The leadership needs to come together and be the backbone it needs to be for this great party without prejudice and negligence.

    Mai Nkhoma has a valid point (although she may be saying some of this out of personal inclination because of her suspension and other political motivators) if Mia wants to join the party he has all the right as a Malawian and a politician who has the support of the people. But for the sake of the party and the love of our nation we can not have this parallel structure nonsense!

          1. Afana says:

            Harawa, the point raised by Kanchenga is that let us be objective in our discussions. Our party MCP needs guidance in terms of ideas that can be sourced even from forums like this one. So let us be sober.

      2. kanchenga says:

        Please discuss issues prove to us that uyu ndi galu wachabechabe. Wosatukwana ngati anthu wopanda nzeru abomawa kumawopyeza anthu ali tikumangani pamene anthu akudandaula zoona.

    2. Muhope! You haven’t heard MIAs side of the story, so its reasonably and logically wrong to make conclussions out of Chatinkhas wish, she may make or mention any claim but theres is no evidence currently that MIA has joined MCP until he may do so. Dont just say things out of the blue, Chatinkha wants supremancy in MCP and he is using MCP old guards who are financially poor. THE DOOR TO CHAKWERA IS OPEN, WHY CHATINKHA GOES TO TVM? Remember in the Bible, Samison, David, Joesph and so many men fall unto a sin because of women like Chatinkha. So becareful not to be just entertain cowards who cannot stand the test of time.

      Vuto lake some of you people think you own the party and you are more MCP than others yet you have been there for years since Kamuzu died but failed to bring it back into ruling. Now if you want to own the party and remain in opposition keep on doing this. MCP is not for the centre or for kasungu, its for all malawians
