MCP to govern Malawi come 2019 – MP Chakwantha

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) lawmaker and the chairperson of the Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament, Peter Chakwantha, has said the complains of many Malawians over unfavourable living conditions are dreadful and need a government with a heart for the people to listen and work towards addressing them.

Chakwantha, speaking on Capital FM’s flahgship interview program, Straight Talk, said Malawians “are suffering” under the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) rule.

“People in Malawi are sufferings. Things are not ticking,” said Chakwantha.

He said DPP is treading on unstable ground and holding the balance of power will be tough for them because of the problems they have created in the country.

“People are suffering; they don’t have drugs in the hospitals. Ambulances are grounded,” he said.

Chakwantha accused the DPP government of tweaking economic factors and cooking up macroeconomic indicators to paint a rosy picture when the situation on the ground is awful.

“Things will never work unless we change,” said Chankwantha.

“When DPP were in opposition they used to finger point Joyce Banda (former president) but now they are talking different language (as they feel the heat on the driving seat).”

Chakwantha said the renaissance MCP is moving towards “a giant in the making.”

“Malawi will be [governed] by MCP come 2019,” declared the youthful politicians.

He also dismissed reports of infighting in MCP.

“I don’t think we have squabbles. They are people who want to create divisions,” he said.

Chakwantha claimed DPP were insecure with the popularity of MCP and its president Lazarous Chakwera.

He said MCP has chances of winning next elections fair and square, saying Malawians are not happy with the Peter Mutharika administration.

Chakwantha said MCP and Chakwera are ready to provide quality leadership for Malawi.

Malawi needs change now DPP has failed to govern the nation


chakwera is only hop for Malawi,zina zonsezi mwaziyesa koma koma kumangotiliza basi.


Koma 53 wacheze bwino a DPP ndi ma burdits


I wish MCP would come into power. I want to see a Malawi with vibrant economy. I want to see big nkhokwes in our villages. I want to see green forests again. I want to see Ambulances picking patients from typical villages. I want to see outpatients given walants to go back to their homes. I want to see a responsible government!


Ubwino zikamavuta samavutika a MCP okhaokha .TikuzIwa kuti ukungochita manyazi kuvomereza iwe wa DDP kuti dziko lakuvutani.Silly never differrencient


Anthu otukwana ngati inu simukufunika. Ndindale izi basi kugundika kutukwana. What an ignorant educated person. Mcp view is that 2019 thy have a chance. But your comments sounds horrific..

Keen Observer

He is not the first to say such words, Tembo said that, Chakuamba said the same but did it materialise? The answer is to people’s hardships is not MCP. Not at all. Tell me which country people are happy that their economy is good? As we speak in Brazil people are in the streets they say that president must go. Remember how Obama was hyped look today who wants Obama in America? Looking solutions from the wrong source.

M'busa wa nyau

Chafwantha ndi agalu anzakowo; kwacha! kwacha! lero. Kagwereni uko. Muzalamulira mukazadya machende a mbuzi….chipani cha nyau zokhazokha. Remember Nyasaland was once mozambique before the British. Most tribes in the south and along lake nyasa are living within their territory. Find out where nyau came from: DRC i suppose. The other tribes up there: Kwazulu natal. So foreigners making noise calling themselves malawians. May be you should go to Zambia where you have your king of nyau. I now rest my case.MCP


They r strong indicators that MCP can do well n even take govt in 2019 but they need to have a strong n popular politician for veep from the south, otherwise noways


Chipani cha MCP sichingasintha kose. Chipani chopanda maplan kwake ndikulira basi. Nkhanza tho ngati mfiti. DPP 2019 boma.
