The remarks were made during the welcoming ceremony of the renowned business tycoon and agriculturalist Daniel Chitonya Mwanyongo as the party’s shadow Member of Parliament (MP) at Karonga North West.

Speaking during the function, the MCP District Chairperson Emmanuel Nkhoma said the joining of Mwanyongo in the party symbolize that MCP is rejuvenating and becoming strong.

“It is difficult in Malawi’s political history to see  credible people joining and hundreds of people attending opposition party meetings  especially when organized at district level,” said Nkhoma.

Nkhoma related the development as the major sign that his party is liked by Malawians and that it is the only vehicle to take the country away from the economic turmoil.

“Recently  we welcomed renowned people like Dr Cornelius Mwalwanda (former deputy minister of Finance), the academician Dr Bellings Sikanda among others,” he added.

“Karonga now is the home of MCP and no go zone area for other parties,” Nkhoma disclosed.

In his remarks, Mwanyongo who is the owner of Inter-Line Bus Company as well as the former civil servant said:“I decide to join the party after noticing that it has the ability to save Malawian from hunger and economic crisis.”

“Apart from that, being the citizen of Karonga I am very concern with the failure of elected leaders to develop the North West constituency despite being the center or town of the district,” he added.

Karonga people have never been misled by any party, they are a tough nut to crack. MCP stands a better chance than DPP in Karonga , just like DPP has a better chance in the Lhomwe belt than any other political party!
Opposition leaders should push for the 50% + 1 system, this will enable all Malawians to have a say in the elextion of our leaders. A leader chosen by 36% of the electorate means that 64% of Malawians rejected him!

A MBC mulikuti? Why didn’t you informed the nation that this tycoon has joined the Mighty MCP? Had it been he joined Dead Peoples Party (DPP) you would have made the noise throughout the whole week. MBC destroying the nation.

M/S Racist, focus on the political impact of his joining and not his business. In fact the buses that do not have such problems may be running on stolen money! The state of his buses only reflects how Malawi has been plundered by the cash gate masters from 2005 to 2014 some of whom are trying all they can to avoid facing the law.
