MCP says DPP has no love for Malawi citizens

Menyani: MCP for electoral law reforms

The party has since warned that it will hold peaceful civil unrest against the poor governance which has left ordinary people in unrelenting poverty under  the Mutharika rule.

Speaking during Zodiak Rdaio’s  Tiwuzeni Zowona  interview programme, MCP spokesperson Alekeni Menyani, said  sthe secret to rule well was love, where leaders loved the people they ruled and cared for them.

He said the party will call for peaceful civil disobedience against the DPP administration any time soon, arguing the party has failed Malawians in many important areas.

Menyani said majority of Malawians are sufferin,  they have nothing in their houses, they have no basic necessities.

“This government is childish. They seem not to be concerned with the problems haunting Malawians. As we are speaking, Malawians are buying 50 Kg bag of maize at K12500 but where I am coming from the poor people have to set aside over K13 000 as they walk a long distance to access the Admarc depot.

“The hiking of the maize price is an insult to the poor people. Where can they get that huge amount of money at a time they are hit by hunger?” wondered Menyani.

Menyani said the DPP administration is also fueling corruption by shielding the thieves and corrupt barrons.

“Corruption in public departments orchestrated by the DPP gurus is reported day in day out but no one has faced the law. This is bad considering that our economy is in the bad state due to the same plunder of public resources.

“Therefore, as the main opposition party with large followers in the country, we can’t remain silent. We are ready to mobilise the citizens to speak and claim what belongs to them,” he said.

The MCP is also demanding the DPP government to bring to parliament all relevant electoral reforms Bills, saying if they are nit ready, the President must resign.

Menyani also said MCP wanted the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to implement the proposal of moving MEC headquarters to Lilongwe and that announcements of results during a national election should be made at the constituency level.

    They need to make sure there is enough action preparedness. Then they have to come up with concrete demands with a deadline, for instance on the price of a bag of maize. Then they need to come up with a credible threat, so they can do some real damage to government. For instance mass demonstrations, covered by international media, or a blockage of State House or Parliament. Only when the threat is credible, when there is real action preparedness like on 20 July 2011, will this work. So they need to mobilize the population on their issues.

    How old was Menyani when MCP was ruling Malawi for 30 years? If MCP developed Malawi then we couldnt be where are now.We are facing these social problems because MCP was childish in developmental agenda.DPP is trying to put things at a level where it could have been if MCP was very serious. Come in Blantyre and see how DPP is developing the city of Blantyre. Very shortly problems of street light and good roads in the city will be history. Mark my words.DPP is touching everywhere for road maintenance and general road construction where necessary.. So Menyani, George Kasakula and Brian Banda just shut up the zip of your wider mouths.

    1. Apao Kugola says:

      Good to say that DPP is doing road maintenance and not construction. Meaning to say that somebody in the name of MCP constructed the roads in the City of Blantyre more than 20 years ago. Bola pa Zedi seems to have communication glitches. Next time present new projects initiated by the current DPP in Blantyre City.

      When was u born to talk about MCP? Do u know that all road in Malawi were built during MCP. Do u know Staterna houses were built by MCP. Do u know that MCP never got so much as Democratic Corrupted
      DDP get. Is Blantyre the only Malawi? If so why DDP rule Blantyre and leave rest of Malawi. Malawi has more debts nog than MCP tid why? Your DDP is the most corrupted party in Malawi history. During MCP there were food NO hunger. If u were born that u know that there NO hunger in Malawi. Dont blame MCP for Malawians suffering. 1994 MCP finushed. Then UDF took over. All DDP. Jag People are come from UDF. Bingu was UDF got it free by Muluzi. I am lessoning If u have not studied the history.

    MCPs history is on the wall for all to see.Did you ask for forgiveness?No.mudziyamba mwachotsa kaye chitsa chomwe chiri mdiso lanu musadachotse kachitsotso ka a mzanu.

    1. Prince Makono says:

      Foolish idea. Why are you talking about that silly ideology. Forgiveness for what. It shows that most of you who make comments are from foolish children who do not know what you are talking about. All the atrocities comited during Kamuzu time were done by your own grandfathers hiding behind Kamuzu Banda. What ever stupid reasons you might put up against MCP, it was mcp that developed this country and nothing really that is tangible can be said about the halfbaked leaders you want to defend now. It is things that Kamuzu did that stand up to now, talk of buildings, Univeristy, roads, Hospitals schemes mention them. What can you show for Bakili, Peter the bed-songs. If this is the type of politics you would like to advance then I challenge you this country will nt develop because you are clapping hands for thieves and liers. A pound was one to one during lamuzu and dollar was one to two in our favour. If you do not know where the country is coming from then you cant know where it is going. So stop your foolishness and let those who can really analyse situations make sound comments.

  4. Am waiting for comments of behumane and his abnormal compatriots who always castigate MCP to appease the devilish DPP, A WALKING DEVIL WITH ROTTEN MINDED LEADERS, INFLATION HIGH ACCOMPANIED BY ITS BROTHER RECESSION, NO ELECTRICITY, NO WATER, UNIVERSITIES CLOSED, MAIZE PRICE VERY UNAFFORDABLE BY THE POOR, etc. BUT DPP KUWODA MA TRUCK A CHIBUKU OMWA ALOMWE, CASHGATE DAILY, VICE PRESIDENT A LIER AND CHEATER, POWER HUNGRY CHAPONDA AND BEN PHIRI. THIS DPP MUST BE BURRIED FOR EVER. LET BE HUMANE AND HIS POOR THINKING BLIND FOLDED DPP FELLOWS COMMENT HERE, CASHGATE INAKUZUNGUZANI MITU A SATANA INU.

      Yes DPP is a team of Devils, nothing else. Anthu anji osavera chisoni wanthu wosauka? Where are coupons by now and yet we have in the budget, billions. Azitapatapa kale ndiye afuna kuti asololenso pena kuti anamize anthu. Malawians of good senses, please do not just follow things blindly. Let alomwe follow them now. They have killed the centre and norht by failing tobacco sales deliberately. Why, they know odya zake alibe mulandu and they want to make us beggars like their tribe kuti tizichita uhule, ife takana, muzichita kwanuko ife ndife a mwambo kuno.

        Trump is not a thief like Your leader and hos gurus he is shielding. If he was not he could give them to ACB. Trump mentioned APM in one of speach he “There is a president who lived in America 40 years go to hos country the poorest country, he is now stealingmoney and stealing money and hidding here” he added these Africans its better they are recolonised again. They can not rule thrmselves. I 100% agree withiout Trump. I hope he comes to Malawi and tell APM.
