Kabwila says MCP cadres beat up her supporters

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) spokesperson Jessie Kabwila says the party cadres beat up her supporters at a rally in Salima over the weekend.

Kabwila: Sad events  happened

Kabwila: Sad 

“I do not want to speak much on the matter I can confirm that my supporters were indeed beaten up,” said Kabwila who is also the party’s shadow cabinet minister for Gender.

MCP president Lazarus Chakwera over the weekend held a political rally in Salima where some senior party officials were chased away.

The party cadres told Kabwila and her colleague Felix Jumbe to leave the podium but they were later allowed to attend.

However some Salima district party officials and a former regional chairman for the centre were chased away from the rally like criminals.

Jumbe in an interview confirmed he was told to leave but did not insisting he could not leave a rally of his party in his home district.

Chakwera confirmed there were problems in the party and was trying to find a lasting political solution.

He said in his life as a cleric and politician, he has faced huge challenges but God has always found solutions for him.

Kabwila and Jumbe now sit at the far back of the MCP bench in parliament from the front row reserved for senior party members.

    What sin has Jessie Kabwira committed in MCP? Trust me, Jessie and Jumbe are the only faces of democracy in MCP. Our hope to change the face of MCP lies in these two. Stop victimizing them. We need them. There is a lot of potential in these two.

    Chakwera was elected just to block baba Tembo who was widely believed to have blood in his hands and his opponents would have used that as campaign material. In other words, MCP simply wanted change of leadership in the party, but they had not scrutinized the quality of the leaders. Much as I respect Chakwera’s belief for prayer, you cannot talk of it as something that will solve the problem in the party. God does not answer prayers immediately and yet politics is about immediacy and unfortunately, no one can afford to wait too long – this is where “abusa” got it wrong. Pempherani, but don’t bring up this issue in politics, you will fail and this is why it is said politics is a brutal or complicated business while politicians are dirty people. If you don’t want to be dirty please leave because there is nothing like “clean politics” the world over. Politics is practised on the premise of “kupha nyani n’kusayang’ana khope”.

    A FEW WEEKS AGO JUMBE WAS GRANTED AN INTERVIEW BY MUTHALIKA BROADCASTING COOPERATION. FROM THIS INTERVIEW ONE COULD EASILY SEE THAT JUMBE IS PRO DPP. MBC ONLY GRANTS INTERVIEWS TO PEOPLE WHO SYMPATHIZE WITH GOVT. DO YOU REMEMBER JUDAS CALLED SALIM BOGUS? HE USED TO MAKE A LOT OF NOISE ABOUT HIS PARTY….. JUMBE SHOULD BE HONEST HE IS NOT MCP..

    Do you guys remember what Donald Trump used to say about Jeb Bush? He used to call him “Low Energy”. I feel this is the case with Dr Chakwera. This post has become overwhelming for him but he can’t resign because he will lose his monthly income. Chabwino asapange resign but he should not contest in the 2019 elections. It seems he has allowed a leadership gap to develop in the party to the extent that he is frustrating his own NEC. He is not able to resolve the littlest things and he’s not able to make the littlest decisions. This creates a leadership crisis. In my personal opinion when it comes to leadership potential chakwera is 10000 times better than APM. The problem is that he’s just failing to just get on with it and lead. So what is the solution? He may have to move out of the way and let others try their hand at it. Look at what David Cameron has done? Its not the end of the world. Ndi zosiyirana zinthuzi. If a leader can’t resolve conflicts in his own organisation then what is he there for? Prayer alone won’t suffice in MCP’s situation. This is not to suggest that I think Jumbe would be the best replacement for Chakwera. We need a progressive leader. Someone that has fire in the belly. Someone that will truly want to fight for Malawians against corrupt DPP. Sadly Chakwera is not that guy. He came with good intentions and we applaud him for that but politics is a different ball game altogether. He just can’t deliver what we need him to deliver.

    Kabwila do you now believe my word that MCP will remain in the opposition for ever? There is no strong leadership in MCP to turn the tables around and you Kabwila are not yet up to pilitics. You are still in the university corridors because the type of arguments you make do not have political flavour other than academic flavour – you got to wake up and learn politics. Watch how the British politics is unfolding and watch how the American politics is unfolding. This is an opportunity for you to learn real politics from these great democracies of the universe.
