The returnees included opposition Peoples Party (PP) presidential running-mate in May 2014 Tripartite Elections, Sosten Gwengwe, former parliamentarian,  George Zulu, former DPP  Regional Governor Kalanzi Mbewe, Agnes Mkusa Nkhoma, former minister Abel Kayembe..

PP publicity Secretary, Ken Msonda said was not aware of Gwengwe’s move to MCP.

”They neither committed any crime nor broken any law fo leavng PP; it is their Constitutional Right; freedom of association. That news is stale, we already wished them best of luck last year when we learned about their leaving PP. we are strategizing for 2019; moving on, looking forwad,” said Msonda.

Gwengwe, a former Minister of Trade and Industry, has returned to his former party months after he resigned from front line politics.

Speaking on behalf of the members, George Zulu who was PP deputy secretary general; said the members have decided to re join MCP after noting that Chakwera is the only leader who can propel Malawi development agenda into greater heights,

“We made a research and found that it is Chakwera who has vision for this country,” said Zulu a sharp political orator.

In his remarks, Gwengwe said he decided to return to MCP following “sound advice” from his constituents.

MCP Vice President, Richard Msowoya who is also Speaker of Parliament, commended people of Mchinji for coming in their large numbers to witness the party welcoming the returnees.

In his speech to thousands upon thousands of supporters, Chakwera said to Gwengwe and others: “You have been warmly welcomed back into the MCP fold.”

Chakwera urged the old MCP members to take care of the new members.

“These are now your brothers and sisters,” said Chakwera.

Kayembe who once claimed he would never rejoin MPC, said politics is not a religion, and political statements, even those which include the word ‘never’, are intended to highlight and dramatise a point, and “not to express a gospel truth.”–Additional reporting by Maurice Nkawihe, Nyasa Times

MCP be very careful…. MCP does not need these recycled young men. It is these young men that want to use the MCP to reclaim their positions of MP. all what they will do is to cause instability in the areas they lost in the name of PP or DPP. These people have no constituencies as they claim because those areas have MCP MPs already. Why do you need them? they will not bring anything to MCP apart from confusion.
