Chidzanja Nkhoma was fired by party president Lazarus Chakwera a few weeks ago over accusations of dissent and  allegedly connected to the botched plot to burn down MCP headquarters.

But she challenged the expulsion, saying she never applied to become an MCP member and Chakwera could not stop her from being one..

Chidzanja Nkhoma confirmed the High Court has granted her and Nanthumba a court injunction restraining the party from firing the vocal and critic senior member of the MCP.

“We are very happy that we are back in the MCP, we will now be operating as MCP members,” said Chidzanja Nkhoma, a daughter of one of the founding members of the MCP and one of the first people in Kamuzu Banda cabinet, Mr Chidzanja Nkhoma.

The party told Miss Chidzanja Nkhoma to stop using party colours and regalia but now she can use the party materials.

This means the case will now be heard interparte, both lawyers of MCP and Chidzanja Nkhoma will battle it out in the court if the MCP lawyers applies to the court.

Chidzanja Nkhoma has openly accused Chakwera of of dictatorship style of leadership and refusal to be criticised constructively.

He is also accused of demolishing all convention elected positions and appointing his own loyalists in such positions, accusations Chakwera and MCP deny.

I am delighted that the father to the lady was among Orton Ching’oli Chirwa when the MCP was founded. Kamuzu Banda found the party and was asked to lead.
