Mia to consider joining MCP

This proved speculation that the former Democratic Progressive Party treasurer general was set to joining the opposition MCP having ditched the United Democratic Front he helped to campaign in the run up to the 2014 polls having earlier quit the Peoples Party.

MCP southern region chairman Peter Simbi welcomed Mia and sat next to each other at a function where Chikhwawa south MP Elias Karim, a relationship to Mia, was launching a K3.5 million sports trophy.

Women, clad in MCP attire sang and danced for Mia who waved affectionately to them in recognition of their songs and dances.

In an interview, Mia said there was no harm for his bouncing back into politics, saying he left it with clean record.

“, I am free to go back to politics,” he said.

Mia, however,e said he no longer eyes for the positions of MP or cabinet ministers, he did not elaborate.

Deputy secretary general of the MCP Eisenhower Mkaka told a radio station on Sunday that Mia was free to join the MCP.

Reports say MCP president Lazarus Chakwera already reached out to Mia to lure him into the party in readiness for 2019 polls.

Embattled party secretary general Gustave Kaliwo accused Mia of rooting out established party structures in the south and replacing them with his own.

But Mia said he has listened to calls for him to join MCP and return to frontline politics, saying he will take a well measured consideration.

“I have listened to the calls but I will consider them. It is my passion to serve the people and if returning to frontline politics will be serving the people better, that will be considered,” he said.

Political analysts believe Mia will be a big catch for MCP and would add the much needed vote away from the party’s stronghold of central region.

Mia is the right person for MCP vice president. He has some shortfalls but that’s part of human life. Mia has a better following in the south than the current MCP vice president in the north. In fact, Mia would make a better president by a big percentage than the present Malawian president who enjoys worthless accolades abroad. The Lower-Shire giant businessman/ politician has what it takes to excel in an MCP government under Dr Lazarus Chakwera. Some evil forces are trying to paint a bad image of Chakwera, but the MCP president has qualities of a better president than… Read more »

A Chakwera do not think you have a big catch this is total lie. He defected from DDP and joined PP once Bingu was pronounced dead yet he was seen as somebody loyal to DPP. Do you think is a person trustworthy hahahahahaha! he is there to fulfil his ambitions thats all and not serving malawians as he claims.
