MCP rejects Kakhome election, claims he is Aford member

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) district chairpersons in the Southern Region have rejected results of last week’s election of Eston Kakhome to replace regional chairperson Dennis Nanthumba, saying the polls were null and void as Kakhome joined Aford before elections and did not rejoin MCP formally.

The district chairpersons have vowed not to recognise Kakhome and his committee, saying he is “ a confusionist and political mercenary.”

Kakhome and his team are reportedy being sponsored by MCP adversaries to cause confusion in the party.

“MCP has not held elections meant to change the leadership in the southern region,” chairperson for Chikwawa Amos Chanza.

Nanthumba’s deputy, Geoffrey Chikumbanje, declared the elections null and void on the basis that they were not sanctioned and approved by the party secretariat.

Chikumbanje also said Kakhome dumped MCP to join Aford in February, 2014 and never rejoined the party through its rank and file.

“His membership is with Aford. He announced publicly that he had joined Aford and we have no records of him rejoining MCP. If Kakhome wants ti return to MCP, he will be welcomed but must follow normal channels as we have welcomed him nay times he has left and returned. People don’t take him seriously,” he said.

Kakhome, who once led Christian Democratic Party (CDP) in 1995, which was de-registered,  said he rejoined MC P because Aford is non-existent anymore.

Other MCP members Rose Dinala and Samuel Kaphuka said Kakhome’e election is not recognised.

MCP secretary general Gustav Kaliwo said there has been no elections for any of its regional committees.

Chonde Che Lopa, just stick to Kakhome and don’t remind us of Munlo who was a high powered DPP agent sent to MCP convention to destroy the mighty Party completely. Where is he if his intentions were genuine?
