The MCP Youth League: Party in civil war

Police have told Nyasa Times that the arrest would be effected this Friday following the assault on Jolamu Mpangeni from  Chancy Gondwe law firm on Thursday afternoon. Mpangeni went to MCP  headquarters to serve court documents to party leader Lazarus Chakwera and party administrative secretary Potiphar Chidaya.

However Mpangeni said he was tossed from one office to another as the MCP officials refused to receive the documents in which Chidzanja Nkhoma is suing party president Lazarus Chakwera,  administrative secretary Portipher Chidaya and MCP for defamation and unlawful expulsion from the party.

Mpangeni said he was told by his superiors to drop the documents at the gates of the party where he was beaten up, had the documents torn apart so too his clothes.

MCP deputy secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka refused to comment saying he has to see the documents first.

Chidzanja Nkhoma said this is exactly what some people are complaining of MCP.

“The MCP leaders think they are above the law, they can tear apart court papers and beat up lawyers,” she said.

Mpangeni said up to six people beat him up.

Foolish police officers. DPP cadets savagely beat up a Pastor of Bushiri’s church you did nothing about it. Just because a lawyer is beaten you are all over the place. Stupid and unprofessional people. And if people accuse you of unprofessional conduct you complain


Where did operation Bwezani miss this HQ which had a tunnel connected to MYP HQ? If the operation had bulldozed it together with the MYP House, may be the Devil Spirits that are fully lodged and comfortable in the house could have been wiped from the Party. They tried to bring the Reverend with a hope to pray and cleanse the house but the Spirits are becoming stronger by day and instead, he has just joined them. Yes,If you can beat them, join them!

MCP has Secretary General Gustav Kaliwo and Deputy SG James Kaunda .why is Mkaka always rushing to respond .i have my reservations for this. 1st i was blaming Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma but I after listening to her I now I understand the drive she has taken .as a MCP we should go back to the drawing board .which is Convention.


Have you read the whole story, has Mkaka rushed to respond or mwina chizungu chavuta? Do you know the meaning of rushing? He has said he should see the documents first and it was nyastimes rushing to him. When did you go to school?


He went to the child care centres we call school these days. You had to go to the Kamuzu era schools to understand the Queens language. This one didn’t


Because he comes from Lilongwe.

izi ndiye zopusa kuli ma email, achina courier mkati, in 21st century still sending messangers ndichifukwa chake akufafantha, on the other hand this must be the agenda of DPP to tarnish the image of Chakwera and the entire MCP

anawatuma ma roughneks’wo kuti amumenye lawyer’yo ndi a DPP. Why cant you sit down and solve your mess other than complaining and whining about other parties?? Do you think problems in your party will sort out themselves by complaining?? That’s illogical and foolish thinking. PUT YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER OTHERWISE YOU WILL COMPLAIN AGAIN AFTER ELECTIONS IN 2019 THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ROBED OF VICTORY. Can we give you a vote of confidence with the trend of matters as they stand now to lead us out of this current predicament?? mmm ata better the devil you know. Kaya ndangodutsamo ine,… Read more »
