MCP chairpersons challenge Chakwera

Four chairpersons of main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) have challenged their leader Lazarus Chakwera, stopping him from making appointments and holding meetings.

In a three page letter, the chairpersons accuse Chakwera of nepotism and lacking skills to tackle administrative issues in the country’s oldest party.

The chairpersons, Stowell Gondwe, Bauleni Mkweza, Baza Kaunda and Abi Jana say Chakwera has vested more powers in what they called party management instead of the national executive committee which they say is flawed procedurally according to the MCP constitution.

They say they have brought the issue to courts.

Party spokesperson Jessie Kabwila said she has received a copy of the letter and identified the four as bonafide regional leaders of the party.

“This shows there is intraparty democracy in MCP. The party administration is working on these grievances. Issues they have raised are worth our attention, issues of nepotism are very serious, we will definitely respond,” said Kabwila.

She said top party officials will soon meet to address the issues raised by the four chairperson.

Kabwila would not give time frame as to when the party will give the chairpersons the feedback on the matters they have raised.

Among other issues, the chairpersons accused Chakwera of being slow in responding to important issues affecting the party.

Dr. Chakwera is the man who holds keys for MCP to go back into gvt. Do not listen to those who are always used by dpp to disturb other parties

I congratulate Kabwila for recognising concerns from MCP leaders. These are genuine concerns. One remaining problem is now with supporters. until when shall you continously drag other party’s into MCP instead of correcting the identified problems rocking the party. try to iron out the aired problems before 2019. Litmus test are recently conducted bye elections. how the party faired. If the answer is good therefore drag other party into MCP. The problem is that MCP is working on assumptions which is not healthy to politics. It seems MCP is lacking machination to drive politics in other regions because of assumptions.… Read more »
