MCP chairs accuse Chidzanja Nkhoma of being bribed by DPP to disturbe party

Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  grassroots leadership on Saturday took turns in dressing down the party embattled sprinter group which is being championed by Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma.

Nkhoma is described by the inner circle as a ‘prodigal daughter’ because she has played vital role in the party during th reign of  John Tembo and current president Dr Lazarus Chakwera.

Chatinkha last week led a team of disgruntled expelled sistrict chairpersons who described Chakwera as a failed leader.

However, responding to the Chatinkha presser, party supporters, branch chairmen, area chairs and constituency committee chairs led by Lilongwe City Constituency chair Hardwell Kachibekete converged at the MCP Regional office in Lilongwe where  they  said Chatinkha has no legal mandate to call for the resignation of any party leader or to call for a convention.

“These people have no position in fact we are even calling them to apologise to the party for doing a job which is not for them,” said Chibekete.

Chibekete accused Chatinkha of being funded by ruling Democrtaic Progressive Party (DPP) to destroy MCP.

“We know whatever is happening, we know these people have received funding to destroy the party, but they will not succeed,” said Kachibekete.

Banda said the party is intact and ready for the 2019 polls.

“Our eyes are now in 2019 polls we are ready to sit down with anyone with dissentive views but we will not allow a group of individuals to destroy the party,” said Banda.

Meanwhile, the grassroots leadership has called upon the sprinter grouping to come for a round table dialogue.

“The door is open tell Chatinkha to come here she should not be holding press conferences in the lodges let her come here this is a party regional office let them come here if they are not sent to disturb the party,” said Banda.

    Asiyeni akatamba tamba atela ndi MCP yimeneyi 20yrs yirikunja kwaboma koma mphamvu yake bwa. Chakwera is winning elections come 2019. Aboma akumuopa kwambiri ndaona alowera kwa Jumbe zawakanika pano ali chaaaa tiyeni timugule Chatinkhayu uchitsiru basi. Ife tilinga nga nga nga pambuyo pa Chakwera. Mutipeza ndidziko lino dyani ndalama za DPP mukamaliza mutipeza ife sitisunthatu. Ndani wa MCP wa MCP anampanga beam pa tvm ndi mbc radio. Its you and Chatinkha and Jumbe. You have to be careful otherwise zanu zida. JZU has never been beamed even a single day at mbctv so who are yuou nonsense.

    Ms Chidzanja Nkhoma was persuasive on MBC; and oChakwera and MCP had better take her seriously. They can’t just simply sweep away the issues, or hide them under the rug.
    oChakwera is lost; he simply doesn’t know what to do. This is real politik – not the Church.
    oTembo to the rescue? Doubtful, as he has no track record of reconciling anything political. He’s simply used to dealing with complainants in typical MCP thuggish manner.
    MCP: get out of the comfort zone – you are not the government – and start introspection rather than seeking shelter in denial, and blaming other parties. Get busy; you know the next elections are not too far off!
    Admitting mistakes is a sign of strength. And this could be the opportunity for the Party to get some support from outside the Center. Without them reforms, that Center may not even hold.

    When are these politicians going to stop their childish, petty squabbling among themselves and get on with the job of dealing with all Malawi’s serious issues?

  4. NYANI says:

    Chatinkha for President. Case closed.

    I wonder why Mr Kachibekete and friends waisted their time responding to foolishness. Did you not lean from our former leaders that silence is the bed of discipline. We already know that chatinkha is a sale out. Any MCP member knows that true MCP supporter can not be given time on MBC. Just by using MBC as their mouth peice we know who sent them. All MCP members are busy organising funds for 2019. I urge all MCP members not to respond to foolishness. Concentrate on Party building issues and Nation building strategies. For example should we win in 2019. How will we revamp the agriculture sector. How we revive the the various agriculture schemes all over the country. How do we revive textile industry How we revive the tobacco industry. These are the issues not whether Chakwera is a democratic or not. That is not the issue. It is now obvious that the villagers in Malawi are suffering more now than during Dr Banda’s time. Malawian are looking for a government that will give them strong leadership with deliberate interventions aimed at empowering them to produce goods for self consumption and for sale. Not democracy, freedom of speech or any such rubbish. These have no meaning to a starving Malawian in Nsanje.

      You have eyes to see, ears to hear, brains to discern. you are very right.

    I am not MCP, but my view is that political parties, like any other organisation, have structures through which its members can air their views or indeed complain. The press is not the route. I would have thought that these dissenting members should have used the party structures to present their grievances. I am not convinced this splinter group has the welfare of their party at heart. They are fortune seekers who are prepared to destroy their party for their selfish ends. Typical of poor Malawian polititians…

    If Chatinkha was on MBC TV she is DPP

  10. Dzala nyama says:

    Its unfortunate that Kachibekete and his branch/area chairmen have chosen to discuss MCP internal squabbles through the press.I understand the party was founded on the 4 corner stones of Unity,Loyalty,Obedience & Discipline.Now why is the MCP leadership allowing indiscipline and disloyal members (such as Kachibekete) to bring disunity in the party?These guys deserve to be expelled from the party.

    Iam sure if it were in the days of Kamuzu, Kachibekete and his cohorts would have been thrown out of the party.Dr Chakwera wakeup and act now!

  11. Elube says:

    A Chatinkha ma AR’ Ali Thoko m’mutu mungakhale president wa ndani? If true be told she is one greedy person that I know ndiponso … wachabechabe. Amuguladi a DPP ameneyo

  12. PETER MSALIKA says:

    WE ALL KNOW HOW ALL GOVERNMENTS IN POWER HAS ALWAYS TRIED TO DESTROY MCP AND WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW IS NOT STRANGE. THOSE WHO LOVE MCP WILL REMAIN, HARLOTS WILL GO. REMEMBER HOW MULUZI SUPPORTED TEMBO OVER GWANDA WHEN GWANDA WAS MCP PRESIDENT. YOU ALSO REMEMBER HOW DAZA, GWENGWE AND OTHERS LEFT MCP BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT TEMBO WAS A DICTATOR. NOW IT IS DPP TRYING TO DESTROY MCP THROUGH PEOPLE LIKE JUMBE. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHEN A PERSON IN OPPOSITION IS BEING USED BY PARTY IN POWER, MBC WILL GIVE HIM OR HER A MIC. ALL THOSE WHO SPEAK ILL ABOUT CHAKWERA THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN AIRTIME BY MBC. CHAKWERA HAS NEVER BEEN GIVEN A CHANCE TO REPLY WHAT IDIOTS ARE SAYING ABOUT HIM

  13. Patrick Phiri says:

    Chatinkha raised very good points. She gave evidence of how Chakwera had become a dictator, demoting party members with dissenting views. He single-handedly removed people from their positions they acquired at the party convention. No one has such powers. If he can be such a dictator when he is just a mere opposition president, how much of a dictator will he be if he becomes a state president? Malawians take care. Don’t ever make Chakwera a state president.

  14. zondiwe says:

    Chatinkha appears to be a confused lady. I was surprised that she was working close to the MCP presidency.

  15. Kalima says:

    This party must repent first for the killing of innocent people. They have blood in thier hands, font trust MCP and wil never unless it is delivered, sure this is just the start ..more is coming …

  16. Costly Gochisale says:

    MCP is the only party that is not a family property in Malawi

  17. be humane says:

    mmmmmmm zodabwitsa you mean MBC TV gave opportunity to cover issues of MCP? Really funded by DPP

  18. Wa mvula za kale says:

    MCP,you have nothing to gain and everything to lose by washing your dirty linen in public.Dressing each other down in public wont help anybody.Dr Kamuzu Banda (your deceased leader) believed in contact and dialogue as a means of resolving disputes.Can’t you borrow a leaf from him?Resolve your differences amiccably.If round table discussions fail,then call for a convention.The convention would settle the matter once and for all.Meanwhile just know that you are giving a blank cheque to DDP in the next general elections.

  19. Nyima says:

    Mcp,when will you stop mentioning Dpp in your squabbles,this simply shows that ,you can manage to solve your problems.chakwera cadets chased jumbe and kabwira followers in the presence of your president in salima ,was this dpp at work ? You need to acknowledge that your party will not change.What have you done so far to extend your base in the south after loosing mesalably in this region? Mcp was the party for the central region ,with the coming of chakwera now its lilongwe and dedza party,watch out ,this woman is saying the truth

  20. Chanthunya says:

    MCP just go to a convention to sort out your mess ! Chatinkha laid her points clearly on MBC TV .She said lets go to a convention if not Chakwera must resign .This is just the beginning .

    1. Hardcore says:

      Chitinkha on MBC TV my foot! I thought that is a DPP TV station. So the MCP grassroots is right that she is being funded by DPP
