MCP upbeat of Mzuzu councilor by-elections

Main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has said it is now “sure” it will win the August 25 ward councilor by-elections, saying the party’s vision and stable structures are making other parties “fiercely afraid” of it.

MCP president Chakwera emphasizes on need to vote for Mlogera(L)

Shadow councillor for Chibanja ward, Charles Mlogera, told Nyasa Times in an interview that Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Alliance for Democracy (Aford), Umodzi Party (UP) and Mafunde – all taking part in the elections – “are afraid of the country’s oldest party.”

Said Mlogera: “I have received all sorts of castigations for no reason because they are afraid of me and MCP.

“We are emerging victors in these by-elections. And this will also be a litmus test to show the Malawi nation that come 2019, MCP is getting back into government.”

Mlogera, a public health specialist, said he was passionate about making Chibanja award and the entire Mzuzu City “a place to be.”

The contestant told Nyasa Times that he was a “development conscious personality.”

He is also engaged in distribution of free medicines through community based health centres which he has helped found in the ward.

“The initiative is helping in easing the pain poor people have to go through to access health care at Mzuzu Central Hospital currently pegged at K1 500,” said Mulogera.

Chibanja ward was formerly for Charles Nyirongo of People’s Party (PP) who was killed over an “extra marital affair.”

MCP president Lazarus Chakwera and Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya have been in Mzuzu this week to support Mlogera’s bid.

    whoever votes for MCP betrays us all. it means he wasn’t yet born when mcp fed our fathers to crocodiles, when our pregnant mothers had to give birth in kitchens as they were afraid to walk to the hospital without a party card, when our uncles had to hide n sleep in hills running away from mayufi. when chickens, eggs, goats, maize all belonged to Kamuzu. When if your father didn’t return from work you knew he had been slaughtered. voting for MCP is the same as the dog who goes back to eat its vomit. I don’t know what attracts some people to this party of darkness and death and blood and tears and torture and oppression(although I respect their freedom to association). if I had powers, I would have fought for MCP to be deregistered as a party in Malawi because even from the mentioning of it, I feel nauseous. I don’t even believe that today it is that close to the ruling party as the main opposition party. that’s too dangerous

  19. Chipoya LJ. says:

    what a nasty to see the whole so called President of the big party and leader of opposition gracing a mere campaign rally of a ward councillor. these kind of political rallies are supposed to be conducted by the likes of Regional, district and constituency governors not the whole president.
    This only testify that the man is power hungry indeed. no wonder, he run away from Biblical teaching forgeting that he was the very person who was preaching “Muyambe mwathanga Ufumu wake…….”

    All in all GOD bless Malawi!!!!!

MCP is a beloved party, thats why it is still surviving for years in opposition, these other parties can not even survive a term while opposing because they depend on cashgate…MCP beware: enawo kumeneko ngakuba, akaluza amakathira m’madzi m’ma ballot box komanso kukaotcha ku Warehouse, akatero nkumakanikanso kulamulira.
