MCP ‘rebels’ appeal district chairmen case demanding convention

Malawi Congress Party  (MCP) ‘rebels’ have appealed to the Supreme Court a case in which party district chairmen are demanding a convention where new elections for office holders, including that of president, should be held.

Chatinkha: Appeals to Supreme Court

Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma who is leading the district chairmen and sponsor of the legal fees, said the district chairmen were not convinced with the decision by the High Court to dismiss the case.

She said among other issues, the district are not happy with the way party president makes some appointments, citing the position of second secretary general which she said is not provided for in the party constitution.

Eisenhower Mkaka doubles as second secretary general and party publicist.

Chidzanja Nkhoma said efforts to have the issue discussed outside the courts proved futile.

“Some mediators have come to mediate on the issue but it seems the party leadership is not interested in mediation,” she said.

Mkaka, on the other hand, said the party is always keen on talks but it would be hard to go to the negotiating table when matters are already in the courts.

“We shall meet in the court,” he said.

Party President Lazarus Chakwera fired Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma from the party for confusing confusion after she openly said she would challenge Chakwera for party presidency position during a convention she is fast tracking.

    you chatikha ur just wasting your time u can’t be a president of malawi go and ask JB ‘don’t destroy our party

    The one behind problems in MCP is John Tembo who is pumpering Chatinkha to cause confusion in the MCP ranks. This is the problem with Chewas when they fail they unfortunately don’t admit it, instead they make sure others fail too. Tembo failed to become President of Malawi and he has seen signs that Chakwera can become one. Instead of supporting him, he is stubbing him from behind so that Chakwera too fails. This attitude will not help anybody in this country. No matter what Chatinkha will do, she will not win any case in court. The best she can do is to start her own party and get all those that she believes are behind her into her new party. I will rule Gambia for a billion years.

    It seems MCP is full of cowards and this woman scares you too much. With all the obvious mess in MCP you can’t stand up to Chakwera and result to violence basi…shame. leave Chatinkha alone to help clean the house. Kodi do you know that you are being used by Chakwera to do his dirty work? Wake up people.
    MCP will die with Chakwera and why would Dpp help someone who will destroy thier perfect situation. ..dpp is happy with Chakwera and not otherwise. ..wake-up wake-up. Chakwera only wants money

    Akufuna pofera. Akufuna kuti APM adzawagulirire Coffin because the entire Chidzanja family is as poor as most of us. They cannot afford a decent funeral for her. This woman is liar and thief at the same time. Before Malawi introduced ARV program, she used to bring fake medicine purportedly from the USA. Stop this nonsense otherwise; we will expose you and DPP will not defend you

    To me it seems like that you people making threats and insulting Mai Chatinkha are simply vindicating her case. It makes sense that MCP so called rebels should ask for leadership change if the horrible comments are to go by. Democracy should be accommodating various views and not insulting people who differ from you. No leader is indispensable and if MCP constitution provides for an emergency convention when a petition has been presented, then it’s prudent to accommodate the aggrieved.
    The Republic Constitution allows for an appeal if one is dissatisfied with a ruling and I see no reason to try to intimidated people not to exercise ther democratic right by threatening them with bodily harm and death because they do. This is not what Dr. Chakwera should stand for. MCP is digging a deep hole which may bury them if anything should happen to Mai Chatinkha. It’s amazing how her boldNess seems to raffles this establishment feathers. Violence and vulgarity seems to be the only solution Chakwera teams weapon and it’s t retrogressive to say the list.
    This woman has actually demonstrated brevity and courage lacking in Dr. Chakwera. Maybe she is what MCP needs to confront DPP in 2019. Killing her will destroy MCP forever, Remember the Mwana murders…..

    ARE THEY “REBELS” OR IT’S LACK OF A BETTER TERM? MAY BE THE ENGINEERS OF THE AGENDA ARE REBELS?

  14. Mbuzi ya Munthu says:

    To say the truth, this woman is a CANT. Everything she has said boils back to “Chakwera is a stranger-he can not tell us what to do-Chipani anayambitsaa ndimakolo athu etc, etc” Can you expect any respect for any leader of the party from her. “if it can’t be me, then nobody else” syndromeAziwona to nkhani yopititsa ku Supreme Court. Nkhani zoti zagwayigwa kumakhoti aang’ono ndiye Akuganiza kuti kwinako ndiye zikayenda..

  15. Chabwino Palibe says:

    Chatinkha is a visionary leader. This is what MCP needs now. Chakwera is fond of using people and abusing them. He used Richard Msowoya to rise to the MCP Presidency. Now he says he doesn’t want to work with him, but Sidik Mia. What will Chakwera benefit by dumping Msowoya?

  16. Tony G says:

    Mayi Chatinkha please don’t be intimidated by these blind loyalist who are making noise and they don’t really know Chakwera . Ifé a grassroots the owners of the party .keep on fighting for us .We are behind you in prayers and spirit. I was one of the people who were thinking that you are destroying the party after hearing and looking at our party inside out I came to the conclusion that MPC is in crisis coz of leadership problems .It was stops at Rev Dr Chakwera . Why can’t he as a pastor bring everybody together . he is loosing the grip . It will be hard for us to win on National level 2019 with Rev Chakwera . please my fellow members let’s look at this with a sober mind

    Mwadya zambili a chatinkha mulephera kutafuna tsikulina chakwera ndi more angokwanilitsani zaunkholokolozo basi

  20. Luton says:

    MCP REBELS who have appealed against the judgment of the High Court are time wasters and aim at destroying the party other than building it. This 2017 and next year parties will be having elections to elect new office bearers why can’t they just wait for that. I am sure someone with malice is funding this rabel group. This is a sign of being disgruntled

  21. Dausi2 says:

    Kodi amayi awa akufuna chiyambi? Who can vote for her? What has she done on earth to occupy a leadership position of the biggest party in the country. I thought why not spending time to know God now than wasting your time. Mulungu anakupatsani second chance to repent and you are buying it. Mwakawapatsa condition yanu kodi amayi? A Chidzanja analysis Abambo and yes koma his popularity can can be used to mean you are also popular. Remember Abambo a Asia Ana 49 zidzukulu 117 why is that info ndiye mukuwoneka ngati anzeru. Kodi school managing nawa Pati? Taiwan kuchipata akakauzeni nkhani yomwe meatball nayo. You will be shocked that your liver and kidneys are functioning below optimal level. Ndalama zomwe a kupatsani a Dausi, zigwiritseni ntchito pochengetera moyo wanu. Kodi simulation prostitute posachedwapa, nanga lero ndiye zatani
