MCP spokeswoman Dr Jessie Kabwila said the party will provide firm, fair and honest alternative voice “in the best interests of Malawi.”

Kabwila, who is Member of Parliament for Salima North west, told Nyasa Times  in an interview on the sidelines of her launch of a K2 million football cash bonanza in her constituency on Saturday.

She said MCP is ready for a budget session of parliament and that through its president and leader of opposition Lazarous Chakwera, it will provide a system of checks and balances that will prevent the abuse of power and promote good governance.

“A legitimate opposition provides constructive criticism rather than destructive mudslinging. MCP will always be constructive,” she said.

The 2015/16 budget sitting, which starts on Tuesday, May 5, will go on until July 3.

The house will also discuss bills carried forward from previous sitting; they include the Reserve Bank of Malawi Amendment Bill, Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources Bill, Malawi Institute of Procurement and Supply Bill, Metrology Bill and the Insolvency Bill.

Speaking about the football tournament in her constituency at Nakaleza Primary School in the area of T/A Makanjira in Salima, said there is talent for the youth and wants to enhance their potential.

Former Central Region Football League official Zacharia Kasakura thanked Kabwira for launching the tournament, saying it will go a long way in nurturing talent.

Present during the launch was T/A Makanjira who commended Kabwila for the initiative.

I thought Kabwira will bring something innovative!! She is following the bandwagon of politicians who think that a football trophy is a way of development. Kabwira you are no better than a standard 8 MP

Bravo Kabwira, keep the fire burning madam.

Most people like zidula mtengo are pathetic beings. He has forgotten that DPP under Bingu killed 20 people at a go. Chasowa bwa? So what human rights is he talking about in MCP??? If history reminds us MCP ruled this country during the single party era. But dpp ruling during multiparty and they still went ahead killing people. If dpp had a chance to rule this country during single party era, how many people would have been killed?? To educate you further no Malawi president had the welfare of this country at heart apart from Kamuzu. So when you write… Read more »

Koma iwe ukuti “Wanzeru” ayi ndithu DPP inadana nayodi akanakhala mwamuna ndikanati munanyengerana mkazi. Zoona DPP sinawinepo chisankho? Kodi bwanji enanu simubera ngati zili choncho? Inu amaganizo opusa ndi amene mumaononga zipani! Kabwira wanena kuti azikapanga positive criticism and put some checks and balances as opposition party! Ndale zanyuwani osati zachikalekale zanuzo!


We look forward to seeing and hearing the Southern region “MCP” as a Party to launch a Trophy like wise. These are the same strategies this Pierre used when he was sponsoring Southern Region football league. Why cant MCP and its President do the same in the broken South???????????????????? Please, my M.C.P do not let us down in 2019!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are our Hope and you are our Next Government that puts people at heart!!!!!!! Why Not, You are!!!!


Why didn’t you have a government official at this function such as Justin Saidi, the PS for Sports or didn’t you invite him/them? Malawians can we forget our political affiliations when it comes to issues like sports and the wellbeing of the common Malawian? A K2 million sponsorship of a sporting activity deserves such recognition from government.


Am impressed. Probably Jessie is maturing into intelligent politician. She is not emotional.

First time that she said something objectively and not confrontational.

Did Chakwera sit you down????
