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… Read more »

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?

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.… Read more »

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…

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!
