Malawi Congress Party downplays feuding talks

Gustav Kaliwo:  MCP rebuilding

Gustav Kaliwo: MCP rebuilding on course

Former minister in People’s Party regime, Sosten Gwengwe from Dedza Central, Abel Kayembe from Dowa East and George Zulu from Mchinji North constituencies, w are former MCP members of parliament but they dumped the party in preference for the then ruling PP.

But the three have rejoined MCP and were publicly and gracefully welcomed back in by leader of opposiiton Lazarus Chakwera.

However, weeks after the trio rejoined the party fear has engulfed incumbent members of parliament who feel they may face stiff competition in 2019 with a possibility of losing out due to the experience and famous status of the old guards that have just been welcomed back.

MCP Secretary General Gustave Kaliwo dismissed the division in the party over the just rejoined members and has since appealed for the party to remain united and sustain continued democratic trends in the party.

“What I can say is that the incumbent members of parliament have an upper age over the non members of parliament who have just rejoined the party. The best the incumbent can do is to work hard with their constituents, demonstrate leadership and respond to people’s developmental needs and they will sail through in 2019.

“Constituents vote out non performers and retains the ones they feel satisfied their needs so they don’t have to fear competition because thus what democracy is all about, people must be able to chose that which is good enough for them”, said Kaliwo.

On reports that MCP is poised to reshuffle its National Executive Committee NEC to rope in the new members that have rejoined the party Kaliwo dismissed such assertions as untrue.

He said MCP is rebuilding to come up with “fresh thinking”, with some radical analysis of what’s going on in the country and what people need out of their preferred government.

Kaliwo was more optimistic about the future of MCP.

  7. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Mr Gustav Kaliwo has given a very intelligent answers. He is really mature.

    So let democracy shake the weak out of leadership position. Even in the NEC, MCP should not behave like UDF or DPP kumasunga njoka.

    Actually this is the right time for these infightings before general elections.

  8. Stupid says:

  10. William Mzunga says:

    Abel Kayembe can only primary election only but not general election cos people of Dowa west were fooled they cannot repeat the same mistake MCP be careful u may lose seats to other parties

    Ku Kongelesi kuli nkhondo zedi. Awa a Chakwera akukokera kwawo, a Njobvuyalema akukokela kwawo, nawonso a Jumbe akukokela kwawo. Ma loyalists aTembo ndi awa angochitidwa sideline in everything happening in the party. While that is happening, Richard Msowoya is also repositioning himself as MCP President with Jessie Kabwila as his 2019 running mate. MCP itha ngati makatani ndithu! Awa anyemeko, awonso anyemeko.

  12. Dr Bright Msaka-Cypress University says:

    Sack Njobvuyalema and Jumbe. These little boys are madslinging on leadership of the party. Njovu even failed to build a small decent house for his mother. When the mother died he even failed to attend the funeral. Can you trust that person with responsibility of running a party let alone state presidency?

    Akakhala a Jumbe iiiiiii kuba usolora and kuyankhula nso kumawavuta. Nkhalidwe alibeso
