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.

    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!

    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..

  7. 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.

  8. 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. No.no.no. May be you should go to Zambia where you have your king of nyau. I now rest my case.MCP

  9. mbuyache says:

  13. wamwayi says:

    Tell us what has changed in MCP. Please be guided that its not a matter of going into Government. It is about what you will do when there. Malawians are not stupid to go back to MCP again. NEVER!
    By the way when have you learnt democracy? You will not manage guys. Munatitola nthawi yomwe ija mumatiletsa kulankhula nkumatiopseza tidyedwa ndi ng’ona. We do not want ndale zachikale. Kuyendetsa dziko si mapemphero ayi koma ma plan. By the way, ngati amati coach sangathe kukonza team chaka chimodzi ndiye kwakhalira dziko. Musapusitse anthu inu pakadzafika pa 2019 adzati akuberani mavoti, shupiti. Work out on your strategies osamangoti tilowa mboma tilowa mboma. You always say that every 5 years, kodi simutopa?

    DPP is destroying what PP restored. PP was far much better that the current DPP administration. Very shortly we will have no fuel becoz of shortage of Forex. Malawi we need to ask for GOD’S intervention again. A Malawi anthu osamva Mulung kukupulumutsani inu kupitanso komweko. This Governmnent has come to destroy.

    1. wa ku Mitchesi kuja!!!! says:

      True. DPP is destroying the wanton corruption and profligacy PP and their leader, Joyce Banda, perfected so well.

  17. Southerner says:

    Nonse a Kumwera! Chipani chathu ndi DPP ndi UDF kutanthauza kuti Peter, Saulosi ndi Atupele ndiwo atsogoleri a dziko lino. Nonse a Kumwera, 2019 DPP!

  18. Malawian says:

    If wishes were horses beggars could ride. Pure wishful thinking.

  19. Ndalema nanu says:

    MCP after ruling for 31 years and failed to create a solid foundation for future sustainability, what any different can they do now ?
    They failed to grow Escom in preparation for future growth hence the fast growth could not cope with the power grid

    They failed to diversify Agricultural commodities to produce many byproducts

    They failed to improve the lives of the people: no sanitation ( zimbudzi zokumba? Aa!!!)in cities,no proper tarred streets, no formal descent housing except for Zidina houses,no adequate water system well I can fill pages and pages,

    They failed to educate the masses hence only one University that just admitted no more than 1000 students per year ;shame!

    They had all the inflow of abundant Budget Aid but the Despot used it accumulating his wealth over the years!

    You threw people to crocks,arrested them without trial and you killed many in Prison and you say you changed really?

    You can not be trusted; I would better carry on with DPP as long as I have peace though poor than going back crocks!

  20. Honest Politician says:

    Yes MCP boma come 2019. But can we help suggest ways of improving our economy now than to wait until 2019 guys? Otherwise if you do not come up with suggestions on how to improve the economy now, then you will be judged as dreamers who equally have no options to get us out of poverty.

  21. MCP wa MCP says:

    To you all followers of MCP: May I plead with you all that you should leave Chakwera alone because the day he becomes president of Malawi is the day Our Lord Jesus Christ is appearing for the 2nd time. My dear brothers and sisters – followers of MCP – leave Chakwera alone and never ever thing of him to be president of Malawi. God will never allow that to happen and reasons are already on the wall. May I wish Rev Chakwera good helath, happiness and peace.

  22. Malawians are stupid people. Why and how did they trust somebody who left Malawi in 1959 or 60 when our fathers were fighting for independence. Was Peter there when we fought for multiparty democracy? At least Saulos Chilima was politically active at Chancellor College in 1993. Do we have Peter’s family in Malawi? Peter Muthalika is an opportunist who simply wants a state funeral. Unfortunately the dead do not see what is happening to their body. It’s a lifeless thing that can even be burnt or cremated. We shouldn’t make that mistake again.

  27. Mhesha says:

    Fine!!! Those are MCP aspirations via Chakwantha…no fussing around!
    But when the same aspirations are from DPP mouth . ..ndiye. ..nkhani! So many so called analysts all claiming that is undemocratic! Some saying it is rigging
    . ..why?! So this is also rigging???
    Your Nyau friend Kudomtoni advised that DPP will rule Mw for an extra pd of 50 yrs from now. Saulosi also reminded u if the same.

  28. America says:

    Kkkkkkkk akafuse baba tembo kkkkk alikuti?

  29. Joyce Hildah Banda says:

    Over the dead body of Akimu Hasting Kamuzu Mphonongo Banda-Phiri MCP shall never rule Malawi again. It is a political party led by demons.

  30. OBAMA says:

    ZOZO keep on dreaming and i say keep on dreaming and you will wake up one day that MCP is in government house. There were people like you who were saying PP can never lose elections but where are they now.

    This is Malawi and if you don’t know JB lost becoz amayi was very unpopular just like your APM now zinatheka because anthu ambiri sanamufune.

  31. OBAMA says:

    Whether one likes or not MCP boma!!! A DPP just know that we are understudying you all the tricks of stealing. We are the youth of today. The same China which aided you to still are also our supporters and we have a very good relationship with China and there will be more good relationship between MCP government than you DPP who are stealing from them and you have become a liability to them. What we need is development partner with China.

    PP is a party for JB
    DPP is a party for Mutharikas/Ben Phiri
    UDF is for Muluzi’s
    Aford is for Chihanas
    Petra is for Chibambo’s
    then etc and etc.

    But MCP is a party for everyone in Malawi not even Chakwera can claim that the party belong to him. So MCP is like ANC in South Africa.

    Nonse muli mutizipani tinato chokaniko utsogoleri ndi uwu uli ku MCP. Lets build Malawi and build the nation. One Malawi One Nation.

    1. This is very true OBAMA, these other people are too quick to comment before they reason. Maphunziro amachotsa umbuli wokha, koma uchitsiru umakhalapobe and that is why we are still suffering. If we don’t change these politics of households, tidzakhala amphawi mpaka Yesu adzabwera.

  39. ..... says:

    David Bisnowaty will be a better president of MCP than this so called doctor.
    People with Doctored degrees, professors degrees are CROOKS.
    Malawi don’t need crooks no more but leaders who will move Malawi forward.
    And that it where Bisnowaty comes in.

  41. Zanga Phee! says:

    In my opinion Mr Chinkwantha is very true, but i always ask my self that why is it that MCP it overlook other regions more especially in Blantyre? and if i have a closer look on their executive team, vibrant positions are given to central region why? if MCP wants to rule Malawi in these years they should rectify their problem now,They must copy and pest what UDF does. Of course Malawians are ready to change the current administration,But it needs strategies. As regards to UDP, Atupere is in the system learning their weaknesses of the current administration, when the whistle brows for 2019 race he will change the face against them and with resources from his family chances will be high. Remember the long queue at 5:00 am it comprise of our grand parents typical Malawians who don’t care about lot of things when they have given parcels they feel kind of offending to that particular person who handed them sothing else in order to vote for him So UDF there is that culture.So MCP must know all these things other wise they remain opposition Party till the end of time. Believe Me, See my name.

  42. Steve Kamkwalala says:

    Talking is cheap. He has not said anything on what MCP would have done with dwindling tax collections and no AID . Where would they have gotten the money. Tell me what the current DPP is doing or not doing that would make it have more money in the kitty in the absence of donor AID. Talking is very very cheap.

    Maloto! Who can vote MCP, the Nyau party of death and darkness? Maybe when you elect tried and tested politicians as Felix Jumbe or Joseph Njobvuyalema, you stand a chance. But with Chakwera and his hatred for John Tembo, forget it. Why is it that the entire MCP shadow cabinet comprises of Nyaus only? Why

    MCP will win with a landslide, all indications points to that. Currently Malawi is leaderless, we are left with Village idiot Kaliati and others posing here and there, complete nonsense.

  50. ZANGAZANGA says:

    nonsense

  51. phodo says:

    A colourful dream in a pipeline indeed. The same language over 20 years now. Leader of opposition is good for you guys, not presidency. You did more harm to Malawians than what DPP is doing. You cant rule Malawi.You are always vocal, remember section 65 first second budget.

  52. mtumbuka1 says:

    Mcp, we need good education in this country just like the time kamuzu ruled this country under Malawi congress party. Our kids will blame our generation without any doubt, their teachers gets paid peanuts and teachers are probably the most pathetically paid amongst all the civil servants in this country and we expect them to deliver not all of us can manage to send our kids to private schools. The quality of education has completely dwindled and has been reduced to a doormat. dpp and it’s mafia style of obtaining PhDs through back doors also demotivates those who are willing to work their way up in life by putting education first, We are having a big boom in overnight professors with fake PhDs across the board and this is a rotten system we are putting in place. We desperately need new government in m.c.p.to fix the mess the dpp and the mutharikas created. Our neighbouring countries have since surpassed us in all spheres of development. We still have the same colonial buildings,roads and mentality. We regard ourselves as independent and living in a democratic country but this democracy has experienced a still birth since Democracy without development and a corruption free society is a joke and it shoots itself in the foot. We must put all the blame squarely on mutharika because people rejected him but nevertheless he imposed himself on us by rigging the votes. We need change of dynamics and a different approach to issues of government, we need someone with sound economic policies and not the irrelevant Goodall gondwe and mutharikas whose sale dates have expired. We can not live in an era where every little development of the nation must be called bingu this, bingu that, bingu stadium, bingu toilet and all that bull. No president must call any development paid for by taxpayers money by his personal names cos this encourage hero worshipping and ass-licking. People are suffering in this country and we can’t afford to be joking about it, it’s pathetic in hospitals and schools, Security lapses increases by the day, a dollar trading at mk640,hunger is also looming, I’m also told patients in some hospitals are said to be having a meal a day! Fellow countrymen this is a total disorder and what mutharika’s government is doing is a crime against humanity. We can only take so much as a country but we are not prepared to be reduced from the warm heart of Africa to a laughing stock of Africa in a scenario where one hand(of peter) ruins the gains some patriotic sons of Malawi fought and died for.

    Chipani cha Kongelesi ndi chakupha. Ndani angabvotelenso Kongelesi? If Chakwantha thinks that Kongelesi will win with Nyau votes from 5 districts only (Lilongwe, Dowa, Ntchisi, Mchinji and Dedza), then he will be in for a big shock. The mighty DPP will continue sweeping votes in the Lower Shire, Eastern Region, Shire Highlands, Lakeshore, Northern region and Lilongwe. Truly national party, DPP osati the Nyau party MCP

  61. Aubrey Norman says:

    I Support Chakwantha. I From the South I See The Only rescue Is MCP.

  63. captain says:

    Find out how they rig elections the rest follows, problem with DPP they want to make money yet the country is broke. Chakwera ndiombole

  64. Zidura Mtengo Undigwere says:

    Malawi will probably still be governed by DPP, following the next elections.
    Generally, governments of the day lose elections, rather than the opposition winning them. And so far it is premature to see that scenario. Even at bao games, people know that the present government inherited a treasury that was plundered by PP and Joisi Banda. That takes care of any case of economic performance.
    Furthermore, people still talk about MCP,s history: wholesale and massive human rights abuses; and even sanctioned extra-judicial murders. Survivors of the dictatorship era make sure they tell what they know, to as many people as possible. So, the name MCP is synonymous with atrocities and bad governance. MCPers say, “Chakwera’s MCP is a different”. Don”t give me that, and most Malawians will NOT buy that. All the people know is “MCP is MCP baasi (full stop).”
    Without owning up to their past, MCP may not rule in our lifetime. Many in the most populous south, the north and few in the center are still nursing huge psychological wounds inflicted by MCP and its past leadership. Unforgettable, indeed.
