MCP south chairmen back Chakwera ahead of Chikwawa rally: Dzombe, Jumbe are ‘confusionists’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) chairpersons in the Southern Region have added their voice to accusations by party’s Central Region chairpersons in accusing Salima Central MP, Felix Jumbe and former legislator, Lyton Dzombe, of fermenting chaos in the party.

Simbi: MCP is behind Chakwera

The two are alleged to be sending some people across the country collecting signatures of party leaders in the districts, with the aim of forcing party president Lazarus Chakwera to call a convention to address some issues.

Speaking during a news conference that the chairmen of the eleven districts from the southern region called soon after their emergency meeting at the party’s regional headquarters in Blantyre, the district chairs said they are disappointed and have lost trust with Jumbe and Dzombe as they are busy destroying the party instead of building

Nsanje District chairman Mc Stanley Folly said Jumbe and Dzombe are busy coaxing some district chairman to sign the document calling for an emergency convention to unseat Chakwera

Folly said they are behind Chakwera’s leadership and that the two “confusionists” are being used as “mercenaries” by some political leaders in the corridors of power.

Thyolo District Chairman Bennie Harry Betha said it is worrisome that at a time that everyone is busy building MCP in readiness for 2019 elections, the “confusionists” have decided to sell their political souls for personal interest.

George Thambo chair of Blantyre District rural, challenged the “Judas Iscariots” that they won’t succeed in their plans to destabilise the party

The highly charged Blantyre chair then demanded the two to stop speaking issues that will destroy the party or else they must resign for the party join the one which is funding them.

Southern Region chair Peter Simbi then agreed with the entire chairman that they support the stand made by central region by endorsing Chakwera as its president till 2019 general elections.

But both Jumbe and Dzombe have distanced themselves from the petition calling for convention.

“I don’t know anything about that. I know it must be the work of some people who want to kill Jumbe politically. They want to implicate me in whatever is happening. That’s not good,” Jumbe said.

On his part, Dzombe said: “I am not aware of that.”

Another person linked to the petition is Azam Mwale of Dowa who is reportedly with Jumbe and Dzombe.

Meanwhile, MCP president and leader of opposition , Chakwera is expected to hold a political rally in Chikhwawa at Nchalo ground this coming Saturday

This will be Chakwera’s first ever political rally in Chikwawa since he lost the 2014 elections to president Peter Mutharika.

But ur friends are working on the future. MCP work up!!! U will cry the same way u did In 2014. Just a tip, In 2004-2005 Dr B Muluzi gave Bingu no chance for the 2009 Elections because of the ame issue, Economy. Later in three years time the economy picked up overshadowing the hardships in previous two years. He was the popular presidential candidate.

  12. Rift Valley says:

    I will attend the Chikwawa rally. MCP yagwira m’sewu ku M’mwera ndi ku M’poto komwe. Mark my word. Kodi a Malawi bwanji? Any one wishing Malawi good knows that we will never get anywhere with DPP which in reality is UDF and PP, all of them notorious thieves Cashgate started with UDF, was perfected by DPP’s first round, consolidated by PP and now institutionalised by DPP’s second round. Wake up Malawians. You can see that anything negative these days does not pass Malawi.

    Any one wishing Mother Malawi good should ensure that there is change in 2019 and this can only come about with a different Government. MCP can bring about this change. Anyone voting otherwise is part of the thieving mob.

  20. God First says:

    Abale! Let’s be busy building the party in readiness for 2019. We are happy to hear what is happening in the north; welcoming people like Dr Connelius Mwalwanda and many more. If all of us especially in the south can talk good of our Leader, Dr Chakwera and the party, then come 2019, MCP will rule this country again so that Primary School Teachers can be trained in colleges at no fees apart from using our taxes. May God bind us together in our beloved party.

    I am getting so tired with this Jumbe man. Inu, let us just side line this man. He is already a plant in MCP. Enawa amene akumapereka ma Comment oyipitsa MCP ndi omwewo a zipani zinazi ndipo akuwopa DR. Chakwera. Ali kalikiliki kugula anthu ngati Jumbeyu ndi anzawo opanda nzeru. Makosana let us work very hard. Every one knows that the only party to offer the best and rebuild Malawi is MCP with Doctor Chakwera.

    To President Chakwera, when you get to address the rally, Please speak with all boldness even as you spoke when you preached for some one to repent. Show that you know the truth. Show that the one who knows the truth is never afraid and stands by what he says. Nenani mwa mphamvu Bambo. Tell the people that enough is enough for the people who follow blindly. Munthu aliyense amene akupenya panopa akudziwa kuti MCP with Dr. Chakwera ndiko kohka kuli zanzeru ndi zowona.

    Aku Chikwawa and Nsanje inu nthawi yakwana kuti muwone zenizeni. Support Dr. Chakwera, President wanuwanu, mbadwa ya m’ Malawi yeniyeni.

    Go, Gooooo, Goooooooooooh, Dr Chakwera , MCP. Let this Jumbe ndi anzake achite manyazi.

  35. Peter Mathanyula says:

    No one will succeed in their plan to disturb MCP. PP through Munlo, Kayembe, and Gwengwe tried but all failed. So Jumbo be warned. You’ll never be an MP again. Why do you want to sell this country to the devil. DPP will use and dump you like a used condom.

  36. PHODO says:

  37. Mzungumbuli says:

    Iwe Jumbe takuona kale you are doing the donkey work for DPP so that they give you a substantial market for your PEACOCK SEEDS in the subsidy program. Walemba m,madzi ife tili nga! nga! nga! nga! pambuyo pa Chakwera ndi MCP.

  39. Mwanamsena says:

    Simbi Nyaphudziyu bwanji sadachitebe resign as he said that once MCP fails to get a Councillor in the 25 August elections he was going to resign? Anthu atopa ndi Mia plus Simbiyu Nyaphuji. Ku Lowershire kuno tikufuna maina anyowani kuti alowe MCP not these political prostitutes. Nyaphuji palibe chache ndatiiiiii and MCP wont get any seat in the Shire Valley come 2019 elections, trust me.

  40. 666 says:

    Same old politics in Malawi which does not accommodate diversity of opinion on issues. We are doomed!

  41. Kes munthali says:

    Malawi crocodile party is a satanic machine fueled by people blood like a vampire…
    History seems to be repeating itself the real father and founder of MCP Kanyama Chiume must be turning in his grave..
    The mwanza four where branded confusionists by the same MCP, a few hours later the were butchers, with there lifeless bodies dumped in Mwanza.. Orton chirwa,dunduza chisiza, kanyama Chiuma etc the list is endless..
    The mode of operation was the same A regional chairman would brand someone a confusionist, then Kamuzu would have then killed instantly , Chakwera seems to have learned quick quickly.
    My prayer is with you hon Jumbe what you are a true democrate and very development minded.. The very too thing Chakwera and MCP hate…

  42. i jabu says:

    we r behind Chakwera

  43. A felix jumbe atha ngati makatani, mwina inakankhala nthawi ya baba tembo anthu bwezi atakumvera mabodza akowo. Utha ngati kayembe, kugulitsa chipani cha mcp ku dpp cholinga akupatse contract yogulitsa mbewu ku boma ya fisp. Iwe iwe jumbe kodi unapeza ma vote angati ku convetion ya mcp. Paja 19 eeeeti pamene anzakowo 269. Kkkkkkkkkkk.

  44. mwambo says:

    Jumbe it it is not your time please do not force matters. Are you sure you all the qualities for a country’s president? Do not confuse us. Ngati simukufuna ingotulukani, bwanji osadzichepesa.

  45. nekantani says:

    So Chakwera does not want to hold a rally in MJ, Thyolo,Chiradzulo, Phalombe. He does not know politics. Even his endorsement could have been done in south or north not in center unless he does not politics.

  46. Truth says:

    I think Jumbe lacks wisdom and discipline for washing linen in public. He may have good agriculture ideas, possess the business acumen and the ability to create and have wealth BUT he’s certainly not presidential material. He overrates himself and has poor judgment. Honestly he’s exposing his weakness by talking too much and this is good for Chakwera and MCP because it’s natural cleansing

    He should have learnt from Gwanda and more recently Daza. Between he and Chakwera, I see a president in the latter. No rocket science needed. He’s killing his chances of being in government. He talks too much… MCP is becoming a better alternative day by day for Malawians. Let him open his eyes and get rid of greed. When Peter disappears soon what remains is Chakwera.

  47. drogba says:

    dzinkhopedzo dzikuchita kuoneka kuti dzinali dzimayufi dzimidhala dzimenedzi. kwacha! kwacha! lero?? 2015?? usawi, chichiiiii???

  48. Xeenoph says:

    MCP is the National Party whose leader is Professor Lazarus Chakwera period zinazi ndi ma family parties. Enanu mwatumidwa kuti muononge mbiri ya the reformed MCP and its president, PROFESSOR Lazarus Chakwera. Dzikulakani, ENGOLOWANI DPP OR UDF OR PP KUTI DZIKUYENDERENI

  50. Ndinafangona says:

    If there’s a chance of MCP coming back 2019 ulendo wake nde ndi uno. At the rate the economy is moving it will only be sensible MCP functionaries park their egoes and work for the good of the party while rallying behind one leader. Anthu kumwela konko are not happy with the current leadership. Central region is a safe haven leave the region go and camp in the South full time mpakana 2019. Nobody, absolutely nobody even Alohmwe amend are happy with this government. Zolumanazo muzisiye kaye

  51. I don’t trust this reporter. The south chairmen refused to name who they think is behind this confusion. This whole story is a replica of what the central chairmen said by openly saying that Jumbe and Dzombe are behind all this. This is why the southern chairmen challenged the reporters to write what they say and not what they think would hard but false news. None the less thanks for the info though not trustworthy.

  52. Masoambeta says:

    Well done Peter Chakhwantha and company

  53. tsetsefly says:

    its not going to be the first rally in the south. He had rallies in Luchenza, Mangochi and Zomba a few weeks ago. Let me commend you for the good work though.

    1. Trad says:

      They are saying ‘the first ever political rally in CHIKWAWA BY Chakwera’ NOT in the south. Just a point of correction otherwise tili limodzi ndithu
