Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Campaign Director Felix Jumbe has trashed reports that he is campaigning against the leadership of Dr. Lazarous Chakwera and that he alongside Josephy Njobvuyalema are bringing confusion into the party.
Jumbe said these reports which among other channels have been circulating on social media are just fabrications from people who don’t wish him and the party well.
He was speaking through Capital Radio’s Straight Talk programme on Tuesday 25th August, 2015.
According to Jumbe, he has been and will always work in good faith for the MCP and in respect of the current leadership of Chakwera.
The former Farmers Union of Malawi (FUM) President could neither deny nor confirm that he will challenge Chakwera at the party convention ahead of 2019 general elections.
“There is no harm in having presidential ambitions but that could be known at that time,” said Jumbe.
“We need citizenry with ambitions” he added.
Meanwhile, Jumbe said it is high time MCP work on the postmortem report for the 2014 general elections to rectify problems that led to the party’s downfall so that they prosper in 2019.
“All is very well (in MCP) and we just need to position our self for 2019 elections, we need to build capacity amongst ourselves and make sure that there should not be skeleton structures,” said Jumbe.
Meanwhile, Jumbe has emphasized that he will remain loyal to MCP and that he has no plans to ditch the party.
“I have never thought of joining another party,” said Jumbe dismissing links with ruling DPP.
Malawi Congress Party came second in 2014 General Elections and up to date maintains that President Peter Mutharika and his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) rigged the elections.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
