Kwacha! Kandodo returns to Malawi Congress Party -Report

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) continue to gain more ground and attract more members with the latest being former cabinet minister in Democratic Progress Party (DPP) and People’s Party (PP) governments Ken Kandodo.

Kandodo: Back to MCP

Kandodo: Back to MCP

According to published reports, Kandodo is expected to be unveiled tomorrow at Mtunthama grounds in Kasungu where MCP president Lazarus Chakwera will hold a political rally

The Weekend Nation reports that Kandodo could neither confirm nor deny about his return to MCP.

Political analyst Henry Chingaipe told the paper that Kandodo’s return to MCP is hardly surprising.

“This will be like he is returning home just as was the case with Sosten Gwengwe. It could be that he has read the political climate in his home area and thinks that his future political fortunes lie in having a political home in MCP,” said Chingaipe.

According to Chingaipe, going by recent movements of politicians to MCP, it would imply that the party has become politically fashionable to re-join.

Also quoted in the paper, Professor Blessings Chinsinga, a lecturer in political science at the University of Malawi, warned the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to expect stiff competition in the 2019 general elections

“This is an interesting development. Politicians have tried to form political parties and they have seen that it is not viable and the thinking now is to try MCP because it is the only party that has not been tested,” he said.

Unfortunately, you have weakened the discussion and argument by hiding your identity. If you believe in what you are saying please come in the open and identify yourself or if you are bold enough to use this forum give me your phone number so I call you. One correction though: at no point in my posting have I alluded to the fact that all Tongas are Chewas. And at no point am I linking my views to a political party and MCP for that matter. And at no point am I referring to Dr. Kamuzu Banda. You can read it… Read more »

@Kent K.G. Mphepo I understand u dream of MCP ruling but u dont have to chewalize other tribes. TONGAs r a separate tribe & the names Banda & Phiri shd not confuse u since they also came from Maravi. they r bantus & have been matrilinial. cassava & fish have been part of their life for very long time. they r generally a Lake Shore people from Luwalazi in Kota-Kota going northwards. they r much smarter, have nothing to do with gulewankulu and zinamwali. a hill is also Phiri in Tonga, just as kamuzu is a small root. History stands… Read more »

Kandondo did not join DDP. He was picked by Bingu to use him to steal money after he fired Gondwe. Also for Bingu was after Kamuzu,s farms which Kandondo sold. Kandondo never practised politics during Banda. Kamuzu was the only president who did not engange his relatives into politics. The others think its their family businesses. That is why it has become family business and put the nation deep down.

Without participating in the unfortunate hate speeches based on tribal/political leanings like I see in some of the comments in this story, let me say that statistically Chewas are the biggest tribe in Malawi because even those who call themselves Nyanjas and Mang’anjas are actually historically Chewas under Gawa Undi of Zambia and Lundu of Chikwawa. Almost all chiefs (mafumu andodo) in Nsanje and Chikwawa are of Chewa stoke. All but one chief in Thyolo are Lomwe the rest are Chewas. Chikumbu in Mulanje is Chewa. Predominantly Lomwe districts in Malawi are Phalombe, Mulanje and Chiradzulo. You also have some… Read more »

When people give sweeping statements like “MCP sidzawina mpaka Yesu kubwera” l laugh my lungs out. Not long ago UDF thought they were a life party. This was after the MCP got a rude awakening in 1994. DPP got their shock of life when one hour they were a ruling party and the next hour they were an opposition party. So people don’t learn. Things can change especially now that the performance of the ruling party is mediocre. I feel DPP will finish itself due to lack of inclusiveness. A big crack awaits this zikwanje party as we approach 2019.… Read more »
