Felix Jumbe: Expelled from MCP

MCP national executive committee meeting in Lilongwe chaired by party president Lazarous Chakwera ruled that Jumbe should be expelled alongside Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma, Azam Mwale and former chairman for southern region Denis Nathumba .

The party politiburo also suspended party spokesperson Jessi Kabwila and lawmaker Joseph Njobvuyalema pending disciplinary hearing.

NEC members of MCP moved to quell dissent in the party, dispelling allegations that its leadership is nepotistic and intolerant of other views.

They accused the Jumbe led rebels for their actions fighting party leadership as tantamount to holding the MCP to ransom.

Some disgruntled MCP members were calling for an early convention in protest of party president Chakwera’s style of leadership.

In May this year, some MCP officials—including district chairpersons and committee members—dragged the party to court, demanding an emergency convention asserting serious irregularities over how Chakwera runs the party and appointed some NEC members.

MCP has alleged that its problems are a result of external influences.

Talongosolani abale pamenepa. Kabwira’s Car arson mumati ndi a DPP. So iwo omwewo a DPP are also funding Kabwila yemweyo to cause havoc in the party? Does this make sense? Thats where mCP is missing the point komanso inu a Nyasatimes munazolowera mabodza campaign opanda nayo manyazi. SpeEch ya Chakwera wakana kunamizira extenal forces koma wati those people lack discipline


So the arson of Kabwila’s car has a clue”””””””””

without doubt Chakwera had a hand in torching Kabwira’s vehicle although Kabwira blamed DPP


Kumpha njoka nkudula mutu. Pa Jumbe mwakhoza mwakhoza sure! MCP Woyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

No single individual owns Mcp, Njobvu Yalema has oldinary beliefs, he has dictatorial tendencies, he is still living in the reigns of Kamuzu, he believes he is the right person for the post of the partys presidency, jelous has completely influenced him. He has to respect others and the party leadership. For Kabwira it is suprising to hear she conspired to set Mcp buildings/headquarters into fire so tha the nation should be blaming dpp, this is archaic politics and savaging behaviour. This is dangerous because you dont beg for misfortunes in order to get sympathy from others and in conscience… Read more »

Good decision . Even Satan was thrown out of heaven because of pride. These people were bringing confusion in MCP. Problems will always be there but must dealt with decisively. Well done. I started to wonder about Jessie Kabwila . All along I have been thinking that she is a principled woman but of late I noticed some trace of arrogance in her. She is an attention seeker.


This is a big test of leadershipmin MCP. Knowing the Malawian politics, more is happening behind the scene but the evil motive is to disturbilize the party. Shame the devil the will God come what may will prevail.

This is a good development to embark on “Metamorphisms”. This clean up is very crucial for MCP to stand the test of time. People who have been there for too long to not necessarily add value. They need to exit either smoothly or hard-way. The good examples of the veterans who existed smoothly are Katola Phiri, Bisani, Watayachanga Chirwa just to mention a few. Make MCP very attractive to the youth who are the major voters other than clinging to these dead woods. Bring in more young blood to take up positions in the NEC. These disgruntled members do not… Read more »

Good decision by MCP NEC and indeed democratic approach by Dr Laz Chakwera …… people dont learn from others MCP ndingati somba ya machekacheka ndichipani choti sichingathe ask a chair akuuzani


Great decision!!!! Keep it up Man of God.You will still meet unnecessary opposition but do not fear and be courageous like Joshua and Caleb. Nehemiah faced such opposition from people like Tobias when he was rebuilding the Walls of Jerusalem but he still he succeeded. Your enemies will fail and later they will come back to you because of your wise and dynamic leadership . Wishing you and the whole executive committee all the best as you go into the rebirth of the Mighty Malawi Congress Party.
