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.

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.


A mwalwanda thus a wrong parking, remember its karonga not lilongwe mapuyu, education and humility ndi zinthu zosiyana, pezani china chochita koma u change golo sizitithandiza zimenezi

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.


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.
