MCP Chakwera, Jumbe in political war trenches

Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) deputy director of research Felix Jumbe has advised his party president Lazarus Chakwera to stop listening to praise singers.

Jumbe:  His MCP future looks hazy, considered to be working for DPP

“Otherwise the party will fall apart. Some people are engulfing Chakwera to victimise others,” said the Salima Central legislator on state run MBC a day after the party reshuffled him from an Agriculture parliamentary committee where he was chair.

He has been moved to Defense committee where he is an ordinary member.

Jumbe said there was a time he had a frank one to one talk with Chakwera concerning their differences.

“But this caused a multitude of anger from others who want our relationship destroyed,” said Jumbe.

He however also blamed Chakwera for the problems, saying he has himself taken a position to hate the MCP Agriculture shadow minister.

“It is normal for people to like some people and hate others,” he said.

The party has also reshuffled him in parliamentary seating plan from the front bench of senior party leaders to the back reserved for junior party members.

“I have been moved three times in the House but the last change of seating plan came as a shock because I was not told that I would be moved so I went to my usual seat number 42 just to find another name tag so I had to walk around to find where I was allocated to seat,” he said.

MCP chief whip said he was responsible for House seating plan of the MCP bench whilst Chakwera said he was sorting out the mess in the party.

    We are all aware that Jumbe has been given money by DDP but he is another rubbish guy from Salima and shortly he will be ashamed because people from SALIMA are not happy with him

    Its a shame that it has taken this long for MCP to understand the true colours of Mr Jumbe. By the way what does Jumbe mean by saying that he will continue to fight on? who is he fighting with and for what purpose?

    In case you didn’t know, the Jumbes have a long history of betrayal and terrorism. Many Malawians suffered during the slave trade era becoz of the Jumbes and the Mlozis who went about with guns separating Malawians from their families and sell them to the Arabs.

    MCP can trust Mr Jumbe at its own peril becoz as far as I am concerned, the Jumbes shall never change. Mr Jumbe can do anything to destroy MCP for the love of money that DPP have dangled in his face at the moment.

    This is un fair for a big party to wash dirty clothes on public. I still believe MUNLO could have done better! But all the same just try your luck Dr Chakwera

    Mr. Jumbe may be welcome in other Parties. While Ms. Kabwila-Kapasula will be stuck with the crocodiles, unless she quits: she thinks she knows every political, even though she’s a mere rookie. (Wagwa nazo) the learning curve in politics is way steeper than the academics she pursued.

  5. Haswel Bandawe says:

    It is sad that the main opposition party is washing its dirty linen in public.

    The issue of personal hatred should not even arise. MCP should use (and I believe it has) structures for resolving professional differences.

    What should not be forgotten is that the opposition party is whittling down its moral authority and public respect by squabbling publicly about issues that are internal to the Party. The effectiveness of MCP is at stake.

    We can do with more maturity.

    I am not a fan of Jumbe but we can all agree that Dr Chakwera zikuwakanika to lead the mighty MCP. Mikangano ikumangopitilira with no end. Idzatha liti mikangano kutino ntchito iyambike? Ku South mikangano yokhayokha yomwe isakutha. Come 2019 Dr Chakwera cannot win. He has led the party astray together with those around him whispering mabodza instead of discussing solid strategies. Makosana surrounding Chakwera, Jumbe is the least of our worries. Growing membership numbers is more important.

  7. tsetsefly says:

    MCP please sort out these small differences before DPP takes advantage of the situation. Hon Jumbe do not wash dirty linens in public. RT HON REV Chakwera this is the time you can demonstrate true qualities of transformational leadership. You may be listening from one side but I would urge you to treat your members especially MPs with some dignity. The national at large are banking on you to bring back the lost glory with which Malawi is known of. We are fed up with gvt that runs on lies and beģging. Nothing for us without us including you Pastor.

  8. Zachamba says:

    The best that can happen is that Jumbe and Kabwira should just resign from MCP as soon as possible. You are being sent by the rulling party to disorganise MCP. You are fools… !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anzanthu zikuyenda mpaka kukalankhula pa MBC za a pulezidente anu. Ndinzeru ndinthu.
    Mwina akuptsana kale u minister it is just a matter of time.

    Do you really need to go to public for family issues. Then this means you are one bringing confusion. Remember there must be one LEADER at a time so wait for yo time.

    CLUELESSNESS IS NOT A VIRTUE

    I wish MCP leadership could mature now.
    . . . Who else, aside Chakwera; thinks that changing somebody’s sitting plan is an effective way of disciplining an unruly party member? Casual and amateurish as it is?
    . . . And is it not now, that we complain when a public servant (who happens to misbehave in one department) is merely transferred to another department or ministry, as a punishment?
    . . . is this not exactly what Chakwera/MCP is doing? by moving Jumbe from Agriculture to defence? as a disciplinary gesture? So this is what we should expect, should tables turn?
    ……………………………………………………………………………
    Remember the year 1912? It was only a tip of an iceberg. But little did they know it could sink the Titanic.
    . . . If Chakwera/MCP have enough grounds for the rat-cat treatment of Jumbe, why not just fire him?
    . . . Kodi muvi oyang’anira si uja unalasa diso uja?
    What Chakwera/MCP could do is stop being an ostrich; thus take his head off the ground and have a tete-a’-tete with Jumbe or stop torturing or just fire him.
    . . . Otherwise . . .
    Moving people around and stripping them off of their titles (as a display of crisis/conflict management skill); only shows cluelessness on the part of Chakwera.
    . . . Sadly, cluelessness is not a virtue, especially for someone who hankers after the state presidency.

    Hon Jumbe may have valid points for leadership dynamics the MCP is facing but the platform used to address his relationships issues against the party is very wrong hence MBC is controlled by DPP led government. The two parties have different value system & it’s seems Jumbe is seeking attention in the wrong quarters. Mr Jumbe needs to man up to the principals that makes a good politician exceptional than the rest. It’s foolishness to let emotions to cloud your judgement this shows he is failing to rise above petty politics . Mr Jumbe before you speak to public seek sound counsel than dining with an enemy.

    1. chodziwadziwa Bsc (Poly), Msc, PhD (Oxon) says:

      You are right Zechariah…this guy is just an attention seeker. He has been craving for the party presidency, though its his right to contest for such a position but his claims sometimes have been unsubstantive. MCP convention elected chakwera and I dont know why it is always Jumbe having problems with leadership of the party. Your fellow contestants are not even in the limelight of any conflicts with chakwera….??? Wait for another convention dude

      1. I do not trust Jumbe.Anyone from MCP having a chance to be beamed on MBC TV is a traitor. MBC has never allowed opposing views on it’s air waves.Ngati DPP ikukutumani a JUmbe 2019 simulowanso ku parliament watch this space.

        FOR KABWILA I DON’T THINK SO BUT FOR JUMBE YES ,I CAN BELEIVE THAT HE IS A TRAITOR-SENT BY THE DPP
