Four district chaipersons testified before Judge Charles Mkandawire on how Chakwera flouted rules of the party and party constitution.

They said it was wrong for Chakwera to keep on removing people from their positions which they attained at the party convention two years ago.

The district chairmen also accused Chakwera of removing some constitutional positions and creating new positions which were not provided for in the party constitution.

MCP lawyer Wapona Kita took the district chaipersons head on and punched holes in their testimony rendering the testimonies useless.

Lawyer for the former district chairmen Wesley Namasala was in his feet defending his clients during the trial as Kita wanted to prove before Judge Mkandawire that the district chairmen were lying and did not know what they were saying.

Some people say the district chaorpersons are being funded by Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma, the newest party rebel who has since been axed from MCP along with deputy director of research Felix Jumbe whilst party publicist Jessie Kabwila and Joseph Njobvuyalema have been suspended from the party.

Felix this is not farmers union. You have demonstrated that you are not leader. You should not be used by DPP.

Please so called former District Chairmen, know that there is no Life Chairmanship now. You are all foolish and you are the ones who made MCP into Opposition all this time. Just go and form your own Party if want. We are tired of you

MCP needs well educated District Chairmen not these ones. They don’t even know the party rules and regulations…what kind of District chairmen are these? They thought they will occupy those offices forever..no! Let them go please. Chakwera that’s the right direction you are taking. Get rid of all the confusionists and let the right people lead.

Mabwana ndi Madona to say the fact even if Felix and Chidzanja can look for presidency. Can you compare the mentioned personnel to compete with Chakwera. Phuma lomwe ali nalo a Felix Jumbe can he be a leader. I am completely 100% doubtful. Zinazi kumawona. Ngati iwo alandila ndalama kuchoka ku DPP asamale nazo ndalamazo. Koma musamale musakonde ndalama kwambiri iyayi zikuwonekerani zina zake ngati simunakwanise chimene mwalandilira ndalamazo. Be very careful with today’s world. Osangodyera zipani zinazi ndalama. Mudzalipira. Kaya nzanu izo
