The former Deputy Minister of Finance Dr Cornelius Mwalwanda has said he joined Malawi Congress Party (MCP) because the party has sound policies that would develop the country and not the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Speaking during a regional welcome rally which was held at MCP offices in Karonga the northern part of Malawi, Mwalwanda , who was formerly a People’s Party (PP) members and also served DPP, said he want to be part of MCP renaissance.

According to Mwalwanda , an economist, Malawians are facing numerous economic and developmental hardships and that there is increasing poverty levels in the country.

MCP has since given him the position of Deputy Director of Economic Planning in the National Executive Committee (NEC).

“I have joined MCP because its policies are sound and under the leadership of Dr Lazarous Chakwera. There is no doubt whatsoever that MCP is the party that will be develop Malawi,” said Mwalwanda.

He refuted reports that he applied to rejoin the DPP and that they rejected him.

“I decided to join MCP because of its people-centred policies,” said Mwalwanda.

“I have to mention here that I have found a home in MCP because to say the truth PP embarrassed me by playing a double standards with my long term rival (Frank Tumpale Mwenefumbo) as its candidates in Karonga Central Constituency, a development led to violence hence the party is history to me,” said Mwalwanda.

In his remarks, the District MCP Chairperson Emmanuel Khoma said the door is open for any one to join the party as it is rebuilding.

Mwalwanda served in the DPP under the late president Bingu wa Mutharika. After Mutharika’s death in 2012, he joined People’s Party under Joyce Banda. He was member of Parliament for Karonga Central Constituency.

    MCPPPPPPPPPPPPP. Yagwira mseuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! Ngati Benz.

  2. MCP has its roots in the north and was founded by Orton Chirwa. North and Centre contribute more than 75 of GDP. Kamuzu preached unity and was against tribalism. This is what MCP stands for. Welcome Dr. Mwalwanda. DPP kwiba. The Kwacha is now trading at K620 to a dollar. More troubles for Malawi. Very soon the price of fuel will go up. There are no jobs for Malawians.

    The remain party in Malawi is Mcp.So we welcome you back in Karonga.All our votes in Karonga are going to Mcp this time.Dpp and Pp have totally failed Malawians with their cashgate behaviour.

  5. clement says:

    Mmmm mwalwanda, you must tell people the truth that you are confused. If not confused why are you bored with pp for backing mwenefumbo? After all you will never succeed and you are a failed economist.DPP can’t lose elections with mcp whatever circumstances.

    Malawi will gain her lost glory and Malawians will reclaim their lost diginity. Malawi will once again be a food donor and Malawi’s economy and development will revamp great from the time MCP will be ruling Malawi. We want quality education. We want the best social services. Bring back the MCP!!

    Welcome to MCP! Tithandizane kuchotsa mbavazi chonde.

  14. Rift Valley says:

    At least we have some serious thinking people. Koma a Malawi, bwanji kulimbikla mtunda opanda madzi. You have tried UDF and you had ten wasted years and the start of Cashgate. You tried DPP with Bingu. Where did this get you? Only the consolidation period for Cashgate initiated by UDF. Then came a Mai who blundered and brought Cashgate into the open. You also know UDF is already in tatters.

    Why not try something new for the sake of developing Mother Malawi? Do you know? Anything negative thes days does not pass Malawi. What a shame! I pray that God helps us and bring forward intelligent people like Mwalwanda to take Malawi to its former glory. As for brothers and sisters in the North, I do not think you want to be part of thieving crowds. Support MCP through Chakwera, Mwalwanda (who I know to be inelligent), Msowoya and several other level headed people who wish Malawi well.

  15. mbava says:

    Northerners are difficult to understand and as they claim to be educated, they sometimes show their stupidity on very small small things. And Mwalwanda is no exception at all no wonder they misled JB to plunder the country’s economy. The best they can do is to go back to the drawing board to revive their AFORD Party. Full stop. Mwalwanda, Malawi’s politics is for those who know what Malawi is, where Malawi will be. Basi. Mwalwanda, in 2019, you will know Peter is Peter who cannot be abandoned by ife Alhomwe. Udziwanso!

  22. chakhalira says:

    Inu a 666 mwachitabwino that you do not know who this DR. Cornelius Mwalwanda is. This is one of those young people of the Reserve Bank trained Doctors in Economics in Canada in the early 1980s. I knew this man in 1983 already a Doctor in Economics and he was the Assistant Director of Research in the Reserve Bank of Malawi. Kaya inuyo munali kuti at that time?

    Abambo, you need this type of people NOT as politicians, but as Technocrats in the Government. I very well remember, this man in March, 1983 when the IMF Team was in Malawi, some officials in the Ministry of Finance and Reserve Bank influenced by some politicians of those days wanted to conceal the facts of the cheques by holding them uncleared ( I hope you can understand this language). This Young Doctor in those days refused to bow down to their dictates and said let us tell the truth to IMF Team. The Government position was stated as it truly was. If he was able to stand against political directives in those days, don’t you think you need such people as these much more in this rotten government systems? It is only MCP that has very serious minded people.

    Well come to MCP Doctor Mwalwanda. Koma zibwana ayi!!!!! Lero apa, Mawa apo!!!! Tsiku linanso apo!!!!!!!!!!!! Ayi!!! Kumbukilani komwe mwachokera!!!!

  23. Tili Chenene says:

  26. Mhupe says:

  27. koma says:

  28. CAIROS says:

    Mwalwanda!! We still love u so much, not only in Karonga Central but also thruout Malawi. A man with genuine ideas & luv.

  29. YAKI says:

    Mwalwanda is a spent force which will bring nothing to MCP ONLY THAT MCP IS HUNGRY FOR SUPPORT BEING A PARTY OF DEATH AND DARKNESS. HE HAS BEEN REJECTED BY DPP THE PARTY WHICH WILL RULE FOREVER

  30. vwapuvwapu says:

    Ndikukhulupilra kuti mwayang’ana mbali zonse ndipo mwawona chimodzi.
    Well go, pamene ena akukufunani.
    Maso awiri amayang’ana kwambiri koma limozi limawona bwino.

  31. kasoba says:

    Mwenefumbo is Mwalwandas kinsman. Both are a liability to civimised politics. No real cause for celebration here. Sorry.

  32. Dikisan says:

    Your wish is the wish of many in the North to Join MCP. Congratulation for making it in the new and rebranded MCP.

  33. Maximum Prison says:

    MCP hahahaha! The party that has stayed long in opposition under multiparty democracy. MCP will never rule Malawi again. May be in 2050 not other wise. DPP/UDF for life. CHipani cha a chewa ndi atumbuka sichingawine chisankho ku Malawi kuno

  34. 666 says:

    This Mwalwanda does not inspire at all. I wonder which University accorded him a Phd. He sounds clueless and at times lacking the human sense of judgement.

  35. makito says:

    Palibepo chabwino apa. The guy lost steam long time ago. Just looking for relevance.

  36. maa says:

    Congratulations, kutha kwa DPP

  37. ... says:

    Mwachita bwino.
    DPP is a visionless party whose leaders waste our forex anyhow to blow in China with some district gouvernor there. Just imagine. He thought he will meet the Chinese leader only to be told that he did not book any appointment kikikikiki so instead he met a district gouvernor kikikiki
    Useless Lomwe Mbendera/Nyirenda leader.
    Ndipo munthu ozindikira do not associate with evil party (kupha & kuba).
    Well done Hon. Mwalwanda
