DPP condemns MCP for dividing PP, says Chakwera to blame for Mzuzu fracas

Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) says the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is fuelling and funding the divisions in Peoples Party (PP) and held opposition leader Lazarus Chakwera responsible for the violence that marred a recent opposition rally in Mzuzu.

Kasaila: MCP is fuelling PP infighting

DPP publicist Francis Kasaira said in an interview Saturday that Chakwera and his MCP are to blame for the divide and rule political tactic on PP which he said has no leadership since Joyce Banda fled the country on self imposed exile since losing to the 2014 elections to President Peter Mutharika.

“He is to blame for aligning himself with just one faction of the party. He (Chakwera) should either stop supporting one roof in PP or mediate in the party’s leadership crisis,” he said.

He said the divisions in PP led to the violence at the rally in Mzuzu.

However MCP publicist Jessie Kabwila blamed the DPP establisment for sponsoring the violence at the opposition rally, saying the style of the violence had all the hallmarks of DPP.

“DPP is the architect of the violence. This party has the history of violence, it uses panga thugs to intimidate the opposition. You remember the 2011 July 20 violence? The DPP thugs moved up and town Blantyre in DPP t shirts wielding pangas on the streets in DPP branded cars. They are on camera,” she said.

Kabwila said the DPP has no moral mandate to denounce what she called the MCP and PP solidarity.

“DPP must make sure it is delivering on services. People have no food up to now, until now hospitals do not have medicine. These are some of the areas the DPP must prioritise instead of sponsoring violence,” said Kabwila, a fierce critic of government.

She said the DPP is wasting people’s time in Malawi.

    Really we MCPs we are afraid Chakwera akubetsa our party. First it was by taking Msowoya as his running mate. Second is by forming an illegal working alliance PP’s North faction and Aford . We want the old genuine MCP back. Chakwera, Kabwila are killing our party. I am sure Uladi Mussa will protect PP from being stollen by Kamlepo

    UDF, an ally of DPP had (has) some internal wrangles that forced the party to fire its vice president from central region. Did Kasaila’s DPP intervened in the UDF wrangle? Or, was the working agreement that has seen UDF’s president holding a cabinet position in DPP terminated? So the Kasaila logic only applies to opposition parties not the ruling? Shame on a 100% human being with 0% integrity!

    Devil People’s Party (DPP) is indeed loosing sleep with the mighty MCP. They have failed the country miserably and will look at anything to divert people’s attention. I pity these useless so called leaders without a vision.

  6. Buyelekhaya says:

    Lest we forget. Mzomera Ngwira was effectively fired from PP but because of stupidity he’s still clinging.
    In my opinion MCP is not siding with any faction in the PP. Ngwira’s not a faction because he’s no longer a member of PP.

    Chinthu chanzeru chomwe angachite nkubwelera ku DPP kuti adzikalankhula chiNgelelezi chake chija nkumadyanso ndalama!

    Sometimes i really choose to remain silent on other issues but this one mmm! Let me say something.Why do u always choose to lie to Malawians?Tell ur comrades to read all the comments here and come again with another 1/4 baked lie. Do u fear GOD urself? Sometimes silence is gold.

  15. DOBO says:

    From the information gathered so far there one question that need proper explanations before analysing the violence at the MCP/PP/AFORD rally. The question is:
    Why the Police were absent at the opposition rally yet they were informed ?
    Possible answers are:
    1. They received orders from above not to protect the leaders of of opposition .
    2. They were sending a message to opposition parties to form their own Police
    3. They themselves organised the violence.
    4. They were on strike

  16. Tiyeni Nazo says:

    Kkkkk so DPP has developed diahhorrlea over the joint MCP/PP rallies! Secondly Kasaira is speaking the Mzzomera Ngwira language ndiye tifunilanjinso umboni wina apa? Kasaila is speaking because Mzomera is feeling the heat and these are tactics to be seen to protect him.

  17. Khuth'upa o'Machemba says:

    As history cannot be erased, all Malawians know that Ms Kabwila-Kapasula’s party, MCP, is the one with a record of violence in this country. And worse: extra judicial killings, and wanton disregard for human rights, or any rights for that matter.
    Her unending attempts to sanitize that record is futile, as Malawians who lived the experience make sure they tell their kids, and grand kids, about what really went on during the brutal dictatorship. That proto dictatorship! Asa!
    oChakwera was not personally involved during that time, but he has inherited the Party, and its record; holus bolus. Doubtful if that Party will win a majority, or the Presidency, any time soon. No wonder, eh.
    Ms. Kabwila-Kapasula: get real. And get used to the Opposition side: you may as well stamp your name on your current seat.

  19. Thavaliwa says:

    DPP is so desperate they are doing everything to divert people’s attention .Look how they have twisted Grave chinhas death. Bushiri is only helping vulnerable Malawian but u are saying in the social media that grace was killed by Bushiri and JB . Idiot we are watching u.

  20. Kenkkk says:

    Kasaila, you are proving beyond reasonable double that dpp gurus actually funded and instigated the violence in mzuzu. Why should mcp mediate on or interfere with the pp’s strifes?

    Mcp sides with the official pp line led currently by uladi mussa, the leader in parliament as well where the overwhelming pp MPs are. Not your crazy dog mzomera whom you dpp thugs had bribed to cause violence. Even Khumbo Kachale had backed uladi, so mzomera your lone wolf is struggling alone uselessly.

    So you dpp guys are ready to intervene or mediate between pp two factions? One function has only mzomera and the other led by uladi which has many followers. Is that not interfering into another party’s affairs? In fact it shows you dpp thugs are supporting mzomera who is one against the overwhelming majority of pp. No wonder your fellow thug mzomera is now voting with you dpp thugs in parliament.

    Kasaila dziwa kuti amalawi siopusa ndipo zomwe mukuwachita otsutsa lero mawa mudzakhala inu ndipo pansi pano palibe chosatha pangatalike pangafuke koma tsiku lina mpando omwe mulinawowo udzakhala waena mwamva?

  22. Kamwela says:

    There is nothing wrong in PP and MCP associating with each other. Violence cannot be justified in any way. Kutsaila is guilty. He knows something about the violence.

  23. Wanga ndi yemweyo says:

    This brand of violence has DPP written all over it. Malawians are not blind! This train of violence stops at the door of the Demented Perturbed Peter’s party, period!

  24. dpp musowa zochita kodi bwaji kumapanga chituko choti mudzalozeko nanga mudaloza chiyani kod? zikwanje aaaa chipani cha biri yonyasa ndi dpp

  25. Jahan says:

    So that was DPP’s tactic. Sponsor the frustrated Mzomera Ngwira to Fuel the violence and later blame it on MCP. Just how stupid do you think people are Kasaila? As stupid as YOU? Did you think anyone would buy that excuse? The police know Ngwira was the sponsor, what are they not arresting him for questioning?

  26. Tione says:

    If you are saying the truth Francis Kasira, why are you looking down instead of facing the camera? Everyone knows that DPP is the architect of violence and would want to rule forever. Pitala wakoyo tatopa naye ndipo sitikumufuna pamodzi ndi iweyo. Ntchito yako ndi kuseteka nsapato basi uli andumire mwenye.

  27. Mbuya Kutsaira, Mkwinya ako Baa! Waaaa! Iwembo ndi tswilu biiii! Pikulonga iwe Baa! Matudzwi okha okha! DPP yaphatizana na UDF, MCP yaphatizana na PP, The MCP didn’t blame the DPP when Iqbar Omar function started fighting with UDF Atupele function so what you are talking about its absolutely BUSHIT! After all the Leadership problem in PP its for long time before MCP started working with PP, Malawians are not so stupid as you are Hon Katsaira, If you got nothing to say on this issue, I’m sure there is enough THOVE in Nsanje, DDP its a part of violence, Even Pitala himself has been making threats to Opposition for so many times.

    A DPP kambani zina..inu dont u knw kuti yhese guys were already divided…..mwasowa zonena eti..

  29. Mbonga Matoga says:

    Mr Kasaila can you explain why the whole Mzuzu city strong police was no where to be seen during this fracas? Can PP control the police? who are you trying to fool?

    Malawians are more clever these days to listen to someone like you who is obviously acting under the influence of a yellow burn that DPP has put in your mouth. DPP will use you like a condom and damp you after.

    Why is the DPP spokesperson quite on this? why are they sending you to make such a stupid allegation? Mr Kasaila, they are using you to attack MCP becoz you are from the central region…….period.
