MCP MP demands removal of ‘dead wood’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  Kasungu West legislature Alex Major has called on the party to remove the ‘dead wood’ if it needs to be vibrant and win elections.

MP Major: Let's get rid of dead wood in MCP

MP Major: Let’s get rid of dead wood in MCP

In an exclusive interview with Nyasa Times, Major who was chairman for the party’s by-elections campaign  said as it is, MCP cannot win any elections because it has a lot of political fading stars.

“If the by-elections are anything to go by, MCP is not ready to win any elections in the country because we have a lot of people who are not ready to serve the party.

“As of now , we are financially handicapped, we don’t have the required human resource and most of the leadership at district and regional level is not active,” he said.

He observed that MCP has some leaders who are there to reap from the party and not to contribute to its success.

“There are a lot of leaders who have nothing to do but to reap from the party other than contributing to its success. We need the rebuilding and restructuring process as soon as possible.

“We have a lot of support from all the corners of the country but because of some passive leadership, we are not ready to compete fully during the elections,” said Major.

MCP has never had elections at district and regional level for almost 10 years now.

    Thats the problem of current youth, tikafuna kukonza zinthu sitimaima pachulu nkumalalata choncho. how can public trust ur idea?

  5. High Priest and prime of all nyasa's says:

    i dont think the party can prosper with youth only,it z where it z today the strongest party in nyasaland just bcoz JZU kept the party without shaken, winning? what do u mean, without riging the party wud hv bn governing now. we need all types of ppo.

  6. Prophet Justice says:

    While I agree with Mr Major, he would find a proper platform for these sentiments not washing the dirty MCP linen in the public. He has shown his political noviceness.

    1. mcpsupporter says:

      There is nothing wrong in what Mr Major has said. These are just facts and the honest truth. It is time MCP knows the truth by whatever means.Za Nyau nyau zithe you are killing the psrty.

  9. samson kawalazira says:

    I totally agree with Major, there is no point in retaining people in positions they cannot perform. This is a computer age, therefore one cannot work with a person who lives 30 years back today.

  10. Issa Kabudu says:

    Mr. Major to me I can rate him as a smart boy and politically intelligent, MCP must take care of this young man, he is vissionary and can contribute to the success of the party. With the same note UDF must recruit smart girls and boys if their party is to win 2024. Take the dead wood out, bring the young people at the front seat.

  11. Towera wa mcp says:

    You right hon. Major, i know u r talking from your recent experince with the by-elections. we lost one of the Kasungu wards because of these dead woods at constituency and district. they imposed a candidate and leaving out the one wanted by the voters. us a result the mcp candidate lost misalably. The southern region and eastern region are areas that are seriously on a death bed. The Southern Region Chairman and his team are being too protective of their positions because thats where they get their bread and butter through the rentals from MCP proparty. they failed to campaign for Dr. Chakwera and the party, they failed to field enough and proper candidate for May Elections. The Chairman for the south so many times frustrated the youth group that worked tirelessly using their own resources to support and campaign for the party. Let these people go and have the party rebranded through Branch, Areal, Constituency, District, Regional and National Elections as some members in NEC are also useless.

    1. GONANI says:

      Poor patie – comment no 28 Ndiwe chiphwisi chenicheni! Chifukwa chiyani ukulimbana ndi Kabwira wathu for no reason? Leave her a lone, for what we know, she tells only the truth. The subject of this article is the dead wood who stay idle all the time and do nothing to promote the interests of the party. Sizachiphwisi zakozo ayi!

  14. Nyani wa ku Mwananyani says:

    This young MP is onto something; and he’s not the only one in MCP who thinks this way. Good points here.
    The Rev. Chakwera is simply no political leader; he should have stayed in the church basi. He has no idea of political strategy; and he leaves this all important job to rookies and amateurs, like Kabwila. Big time defeat awaits MCP in 2019, unless the party reforms and rebrands. Admitting past grave mistakes would be a good start.

  18. wangalusa says:

    Can someone furnish me with political history of the Chewa of Central Region before Kamuzu was handed over leadership of MCP by Orton Chirwa. Polical strungle was vibrant in the North & South of Nyasaland with notable personalities we know. What were the Chewas doing to fight the white rule before the federation ended?

    1. Central says:

      Kikikikikiki, You mean you didn’t know that people from Central region act like mtengo wa kachere, which grows on other trees (umamera pa unzake nkuchita bwino koopsa, nanga chovutikira chani ngati pali mbatama zina kale zoti mukhoza kuzilanda!! After all who doesn’t know that other people are “mere” fighters and can never make good leaders!! Thanks for starting the mighty MCP party, we love it and will jump into anything and take over if that other thing will prove juicy, osakhala zoola ngati the so called AFORD!! Kikikikikiki

      1. kanchenga says:

        If the southern parties were taken over by natural leaders from the centre this country wouldn’t have stopped growing. That’s how smart the Chewas are. Quality production is their trademark. See what Kamuzu built and compare that with what current leaders are building. Compare Capital hotel built so many years ago with recently built Bingu hotel. Siinayambe kugwira ntchito yayamba kale kuola.

      Umbuli, do not personalize, if you have anything, just give “constructive and NOT destructive critism”.

  20. Kharupa says:

    tell kabwira jessie this

    1. Central says:

      Uchitsiru, ndinu mumapanga munthu kuti akhale ndi mphabvu kupambana chipani!! Kabwila is not MCP, and MCP is not Kabwira!! Bwanji ukumupanga kuti awoneke kuti she has too much power and controls everything………..!!! Mbuziiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

    Hear Hear Hear!

  22. VYOTO says:

    JZU APPROACH WAS TO MAKE MCP A PARTY FOR THE CHEWAS ONLY AND IN A WAY IT WORKED FOR JZU AND MCP SURVIVAL IN THE SHORT TERM ONLY.ON THE OTHER HAND THAT STRATEGY ACCOMMODATED ALOT OF SLEEPINESS AS VIBRANT AND INFLUENTIAL POLITICIANS AT NATIONAL LEVEL HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FROM THE NORTH MALAWI AND SOUTH.SO MCP WANTS TO GROW AS A NATIONAL PARTY LET IT ACCOMMODATE A FEW INFLUENTIAL POLITICIANS FROM THE NORTH AND SOUTH.

    IF THE UDF/MCP ALLIANCE OF 2009 WAS SUSTAINED UP TO 2014, CHAKWERA COULD HAVE BEEN AT STATE HOUSE

    Mayo ine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bola a MP Major asafe momwe adafera a malemu MP Chafukira (RIP) pa nkhani ngati zomwezi. A Major mukunena zoona ndithu mpaka kulephera ku Kasungu.
    Nanga mpaka kulephera ku Karonga kwao kwa a VP a MCP a Msowoya. Nanga ku Mbalachanda. Ndiye a msowoya akuchita chiani m’chipani. Ntchito kulimbana ndi Paramount Kyungu basi. Please know that Kyungu has jurisidiction over the people of Karonga and Chitipa, not you politicians so ridicule him at your own peril. A Lazalo, please start preparing for 2019 and do not bow to your wife and Msowoya who want fedulo. Kaya zako izo Lazalo bola osalira 2019. Ngati panopo MCP yasaukilatu ndiye koma izazuka??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  25. vindere says:

    MCP can not win without the support of the North. To say the truth, and the whole truth, Southerners will never ever vote for MCP and this is a fact wether you like it or not. They would rather vote for a mad man as long as he is DPP or UDF President. MCP should build strong relationship with Nothern region if they want to see state house again. I rest my case.

  26. salem chifupa says:

    totally agree with u.lets change our structure please.tikudziwa kuti enewa ndi zika muchipanichi bt it doesn`t matter nothing with change,they will still remain our founder.guys lets push this to happen so that 2019 we change our calender otherwise no hope again for may party MCP.kkkkkkk

  27. exodus chenembu says:

    mr major takuvani but osaononga chipani ,inu mwachipeza apatseni ulemu amene achisamala,komaso muzilankhula pang;ono posunga ulemu wachipani,ngati muli ndi mfundo muzikamba kuchipani osati kumathamangila pa news

  28. Wito says:

    It is funny for Mejor to talk of dead wood to be removed. It is the same dead wood that made him where he is now. But main problem in MCP is that they were too proud before they fell and when they failed they said DPP stole their votes. They thought they had already won. Even well educated madam spokeswoman claiming till today anatibela mavote, are you serious? why don’t you go to court if indeed you have evidence. The thing is if you continue this way you wont win in 2019. Chakwera is weak in administration, he fails to discipline his boys, Kamata and company. You cant win with a weak leader.Chakwera must be strong and stand for truth as a Christian but this did not happen during campaign. He observed right candidates being victimized including his brother Dr Elias, shame. 2014 was your year but you lost it, I don’t see chance for you in 2019.

  29. White Space says:

    Major is spot on. Here in the South, a million people are ready to support MCP if the party transforms now with new fresh and ideas. We need Chakwera to spend more time in Blantyre rebuilding the party

  30. Professional Vendor says:

    Is the Dr a leader because you respect him or he is doing smething different? ha!ha!ha!ha! The first one to be removed is the Dr himself for doing nothing apart from remaining quet when Dr Kabwira is messing up. Mabwana, Dr Kabwira though educated, is messing up the party. I wonder why she is left in that possition up to this day? So indeed dead woods, thats my suggestion – need for vibrant leaders who can made Gom run for its money

  31. ganimunthu says:

    I see that the hon member of Mcp chooses to wash the dirty linen in public. I thought he is there and why can’t he bring the change himself. Komanso I stay in kasungu and he failed to campaign for his councilor mpakana kuluza. He himself is a dead wood. Ife tisza spots chipanichu mpakana kale in ngati akugulan kadyeni khobidi ndi a phungu anzanu koma ife tizaona 2019 kwathu kuno inu ayi. Komanso musamaname kuti munali chairman inu. Chonde auzeni anthu Zoona. Olo anthu a that chotanj kuno ki kasungu inu simungakhale chairman

  32. Penu says says:

    Major is right nkhuni zonse zichotsedwe mu chipani chathu chabwinichi tifuna kuti MCP kudzatenga boma mu 2019.Izi zidzatheka ngati patachitika zisankho kuyambira ku ekezekitivu lijoni disitilikiti eliya ndiku mabulanchi MCP 2019 Bomaaaaaa!

  33. EPIGLOTIS says:

    CRY MY BELOVED MCP. ONE BIG QUESTION IS ; IS DR. LAZARUS CHAKWERA THE RIGHT MOSES FOR OUR PARTY? I FEEL HE IS WAY FAR FROM THE QUALITIES OF MCP LEADERSHIP. WE NEED SOMEBODY WITH MCP DISCPLINE TYPE OF LEADERSHIP. MUKACHULUKITSA KUMANGOTI BWEBWE!!! NDI JESSIE WANUYO MUTI THETSELA CHIPANI CHOKULKULA. AWA A JESSIE NDIYE AI, KUDZIMVA KWAMBIRI, KU MCP KULIBE ANTHU AKOLITE NGATI YAMENEWA. CHONDE TAGANIZANI BWINO. NDIKALE LIJA TAKHALA KOTSUTSA, MAPETO AKE TIDZATSUTSA NDI MONI YEMWE!

  34. SOTHINI says:

    A MAJOR :YOU SHOULD VE BEEN OPEN IF REALLY YOU WISH THE PARTY WELL IN THE 2019 ELECTIONS. INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SHOULD ASSIST HERE. LIST DOWN THOSE DEAD WOODS IN A STYLISH WAY.
    OTHERWISE THAT COURAGE IS GOOD, THERE IS ALSO ME HERE WHO IS SO ALLEGIC TO THE PARTY.
    WAITING FOR THE LIST MAN.

  35. George Lihoma. says:

    Thanks to Alex Major for talking this sense though it also pains him a bit. He is a bonafide in MCP,and doesn’t want to see it crumbling still.
    Mr Chakwera is ill advised,approach him otherwise azawona za 2009.

  36. Sithani.and enawo have to step down to pave way for nw blood.The best wishes go to DPP.moto buuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!

  37. zebe says:

    I totally agree. Something needs to be done. The support is there. But the ‘dead wood’ is just sitting phwiii doing nothing to capitalise on it. I still have my faith in MCP though no matter what. VIVA MCP

  38. Mc Bwampwapwa says:

    With the pace MCP has taken,We will see what happened in 2009. Remember that MCP got almost 60 MPs during 2004 elections and they decided to abuse their powers in and outside Parliament by saying that Bingu stole the election. End result DPP traused them in 2009 with a landslide victory. With the way MCP is doing its business,I can forsee what happened in 2009 happening again in 2019. Mark my words.

  39. Totally agree with major, Chinagwa Chikapima, Chapima ndithu Ngakhale Moto Utachuluka bwanji sichingapsye, Chotsani onse atsogoleri opima, Hon Rev Dr Chakwera, Mukutipo bwa? No where to go with good leader ship without party structures at the grass root level, LONG LIVE MCP!

  40. chekambewa says:

    The leadership is dull he is busy with secession and federalism just to please msowoya. if the so called reverend was serious he should have been strategising for 2019 thats what peter is doing akazatenga boma ndiye muzizati wabera afana meter kumayionera patali bambo. mungo mapulesident ee first shadow lady mwauponda mukhala choncho ni ukavu
