MCP MPs conspire to unseat Jumbe as chair of agriculture committee 

Members of the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) in the parliamentary committee on agriculture,  have ganged up against their fellow lawmaker who chairs the committee Felix Jumbe by conspiring to ‘impeach’ him from his position.

Felix Jumbe: Faces infighting

Felix Jumbe: Faces infighting

Inside sources in the committee told Nyasa Times that three MCP members proposed to the committee to have Jumbe removed from the position because he is “pompous and self-centered.”

Another  issue is that Jumbe, a parliamentarian for Salima Central constituency. is accused of monopolizing international trips.

“The committee found that the grounds for the impeachment are valid but since Jumbe was not around, we were just waiting to hear his side of the story,” said the source.

However, Jumbe told Nyasa Times that it is very unfortunate for members of the same party fight each other.

“Rumours have it that their intention is just to finish me off politically,” Jumbe said.

In his reaction MCP president Dr Lazarus Chakwera said the party has intervened in the matter and “everything is now under control.”

“We have heard about those intentions but the party has intervened and we will resolve the issue within ourselves,” he said.

Jumbe lost to Chakwera on the presidency at the party’s convention last year.

    Jumbe can never be our president in our loved Mcp.His pomposity and self centredness has got nothing to do with our loving Mighty party.There is no way the Failed Dpp will disturb our party by using some big headed people in our party.Chakwera remains our president.
    upulezidenti sikuyang’anila ma peacock shop.It needs wisdom,maturity and integrity.

  12. Kenkkk says:

    We know which party or people are behind all this!!! DPP that is it!!! Keeps on stirring things!!! Now that we know how you still money and use it to bribe stupid people to disturb our MCP.

    I can assure you blame everything on DPP!! Thieves opanda manyazi ndi chifundo.

    Watch out MCP.

    Please you MCP guys, do not mess up with our party,This is the party that will form the next government and stop your nonsense now than later. Malawians are in great pain because of the current leadership and you must be focused and keep the promise of being a smart party without infighting. Thanks to Dr Chakwera for playing the leadership role to have the fools stop fighting.
