During the road shows, MCP youth interacted with the party supporters asking several questions to people about history and plans of the party. Those who give right answers were given wrappers (zitenje) and other party materials.

MCP Youth Wing national Coordinator Felix Sambakusi said the aim of the road shows was to strengthen the party.

“We don’t want to be a dormant party, as you are aware that soon after the polls, most political parties goes for recess but MCP as a major political party do not want to go into bed,” said Sambakusi.

He said MCP youths have devoted themselves to spread the good plans of its party president Lazarous Chakwera for Malawi.

Winding up the show, the MCP youths converged at Lumbadzi Trading Centre where five party MPs gathered to welcome them.

In his statement MP for the area Njoka Chipeni commended the youths for the shows.

“Most people associate youths as future leaders but in MCP we believe that you are the current leaders,” said Chipeni.

Chipeni accused government of failing to bring development in the area.
In his speech Member of Parliament for Dowa East Richard Chimwendo endorsed Chakwera as MCP torch bearer for 2019 presidential polls.

“Compete on the other positions but not on Chakwera, because he holds the key regarding the future of this country,” said Chimwendo.

Chimwendo also accused the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government of practising nepotism , saying only few people are enjoying the national cake

“Just imagine out of 20 ministers in cabinet, only one minister from the central region and the majority are from Lhomwe belt,” he observed.

Chimwendo told the people that they need a new government to make them better off.

“Malawi needs a better plan with a national leader in Chakwera. This country needs a Malawi Congress Party government,” he said.

Some of the MPs present during the rally in Lumbadzi included Dr Jessie Kabwira of Salima North West, Youth Director Robin Lowe, Ezekiel Ching’oma and Njoka Chipeni.

    koma nkopezi ndi mayouthiwa?????????

  2. God only puts an individual on leadership position, if you think what MCP is doing cannot make it rule; then youare in for a shock because God only determines, chosatheka ndi munthu ndi mulungu zimatheka. God is always in control.

  3. Douglas Chisomo says:

  9. Mnunkhaludzu says:

    Good start! Don’t waste time in attaching DPP. Focus on selling the new ideas that can change the lives of people of Malawi. There is a lot of unemployment, lack of better education for the youth, poor farmers support to drive the economy to an export oriented economy etc.

  10. zaambuye says:

  19. Chombo says:

  20. GN Phiri says:

  21. Novirhikana Kovahiwa says:

    May MCP define the term youth. May be its only me who have observed this.

  22. Denying mcp to rule this nation is denying progress for the nation, zikakhala mbava zimadziwilatu kuti zikaolela ku ndende times 2, chipani cha dpp chikuchititsa misonkhano kumwera, pa ntcheu pompa weekend anali munsewu, mcp yalakwa chani? Tsogolo ndi lowala kwa yense okonda the mighty malawi congress party.

  23. Mvula J. Mvula says:

    MCP needs to take the free advice given – Do this in the North and South and rebrand. If you have Regional Committees in the South and in the North, urge them to do this!

  24. CHEKUCHEKU says:

    A Chakwera Akanangobwelera Ku Mpingo. U President Aiwale Ndipo Mukutaya Nthawi Achinyamata Anzanga. Nthawi Mwaitayao Simudzaionanso. Mcp Inatha. Dpp Ikadalipo Mpakana Patsogolo. Mumfunse Atupele Muluzi Akuuzani. Ndimfana Oiwonera Patali Uja.

  25. Jenifa says:

    Kodi mumachokela ku Nazare? Malondatu ndi mmaso…tsopano malooks mulibe mkomwe nde ife mutidolola bwa?

  26. Koma inu a MCP! Do you think Chakwera will ever get the presidency wrestling it from the Mulhupalhi!? My foot! This Chakwera guy belongs to the pulpit please? Tell him to save God in these last days. He still has God’s favour. He can go back and repent by rejoining CCAP Nkhoma Synod. He will be put to shame for the last time if he insists to vie for the presidency in 2019. My God, my God, why have you forsaken Razurus Chakwera? If Chakwera has ears, let him hear what the spirit says to him in these last days.

  27. Alungwana says:

    MCP shall really form the next government. Time to go back to real education standards, time to see real development with the MCP from 2019. Kwachaaaa!

  28. Chipapwiche says:

    I am not only surprised but also disappointed at what my fellow MCP youths have done. All along I thought we have a democratic party in MCP,but alas! The imposition of Chakwera. If you want to strengthen the party,talk about its policies etc and not promoting Chakwera. As a democratic party,a convention is to be held where a presidential candidate will be elected! There are several peopale with brilliant ideas in MCP who can take Malawi and the party forward in the likes of Felix Jumbe. Level the playing field and let MCP remain democratic… Our motto should be “MCP,2019 Boma” and not “Chakwera,2019 Boma”

  29. RE-BUILD THE MCP AND MAKE IT NEW MCP. KU MPOTO, KUMWERA, PAKATI NDI LAKE MALAWI TONSE NDIFE MALAWI THAT IS NEEDED.

  30. mwenda says:

    MCP should change its campaign strategy. Otherwise, I see Chakwera losing again in 2019.

  31. Aferazao says:

    The good thing is there were no pangas. If it were the Lhomwe party people could have seen some pangas hidden in the ”pants”

  32. Kanyimbi says:

    DPP is power. The southerners live without qaurrels. They are united and strong.

  33. Kamale says:

    pano sinthawi ya ndale, sitidya ndale ife. campaign idzayamba 2018 osati pano. go to your fields and work very hard you lazy bones!!!!

  34. ANZONZODO says:

    A MINISTER A IMMIGRATION KUCHEDWETSA KUTULUTSA MA PASIPOTI.NDILILA MAI JOYCE BANDA ABWERE AKONZE I7I MONGA ANAKONZERA ZOSOWA ZA DIESEL,PETROL,PARAFIN.

  35. Detective says:

    Political idiot MCP will never rule this country go in class and study political science chakwera is very selfish.

  36. Kamuzu Banda says:

    We need at all cost avoid bringing MCP back. This party is the darkest in the Malawi. Imagine instead of providing checks and balances they have started campaigning as early as now. that should tell you what their aim really is: power

  37. Malawiana says:

    Good initiative but dont waste your time will the already converted people. Travel extensively around the Southern region in particular where the MCP gospel is still lacking. Mr. Chakwera himself should join these initiatives other that just concentrating on gracing Presidential functions. There is a lot to be done to sell the MCP and there is need for clever strategies like what the youth have initiated.

  38. GEOFF 007 says:

    You will be surprised to know that almost every one of the youths have steady means of getting money than you zangaphee. Moreover we engage in these activities that means we have enough to live on. The items were bought from the youths pocket. No government funds were used here Lol.

  39. kes munthali says:

    Chipani 100% Achewa and your busy castigating DPP about Nepotism, are you serious? You are so blind and have no sense to go and campaign outside your nyau belt because you are so blinded by tribal hatred and yet you want to win a national election. By the way a lomwe mukuwanyozawo bambo Chimwendo are also Malawians , whose votes are essential if you want that useless dead party of yours to win.

  40. Ganimunthu says:

    Chakwera has a vice from the north, second vice from the south , Treasure general from nsanje and secretary General from Zomba. Musova

  41. Louis Gobede says:

    Koma Ulamuliro Mukuufunadi A Mcp Mpaka Pa Nseu? Kutha Kwa Chipani Kumeneku. Mungotaya Nthawi Yanu Pachabe Boma Ndi Lomweri Basi.

  42. ziko says:

    Nanga mukukwapatirana ngati muli ku ma happy ku nyanja. Zitha bwino izi? Kachiwiri, if you are democrats, then Chakwera should be endorsed at a convention again, I want to compete for that position for 2019.

  43. Rafik says:

  44. Redeemed says:

    How many southerners are in the MCP executive?

  45. ulendowu ndi watonse says:

    mcp inalamulilapo mbuyomu kunalibe nepotism tonse tinali amalawi

  46. Zanga Phee! says:

    This is baseless,it means these guys don’t have other things to do besides praising politicians,where did they get petrol cold drink and all that?See my name.

  47. matako a njoka says:

    Mukamufuse John Tembo kuti anathera pati?

  48. ine says:

    Kagulitseni MCP komwe anthu sakuyidziwa, far North and South.

  49. Nyani wa ku Mwananyani says:

    Whoa! MP Chimwendo could have campaigned for Chakwera without referring to the Lhomwe belt openly. His statement adds fuel to tribal conflict, as he sees it; and the statement could come back to haunt him. Even his own district mate, Ms. Kabwila-Kapasula, the polemical one, would be too smart to utter such no sense.
    AS someone has already pointed out already, MCP is indeed a paragon of nepotism. Maybe from before, but definitely since Kamuzu’s days. That party should not lecture Malawians on such vices. It perfected the practice of nepotism, and monopoly of power!

  50. otanjeri says:

    ..this is a very sory move how can you be concentrating in the region where you are already strong and expect the other regions to believe in your party,what about the southern and northern region………this is a complete sign that there is too much nepotism and regionalism in MCP,what a shame….if you really want to rule Malawi again then convince us in the other regions

  51. kayakwe says:

    You know what MCP. Free advice. If you really want to campaign and win elections, do the following.
    1. Rebrand the numerous party colour into one colour. You have currently too many colours and confusing to young voters. You have green colour, tambala wakuda, red, green and blue in zitenje. You still have Kamuzu face, relevant to old timers but irrelevant to young voters. Rebrand and have common colour and symbol coz one party era ended
    ended ended. You are too conservative and still living in the past.
    2. Conduct these roadshows in southern or northern regions where u are weak. You lost last time coz you have almost zero supporters in the other regions. Central Region is not your biggest challenge.

    Ignore this free advice at your own peril.

  52. Bololo Wachitumbuka says:

    What i get is rythmic world say “only dpp are enjoying cakes of malawi” ok? cake? mukufunanso cake nanu osati kutukula malawi? Dyera la ndalama lakula!!!

  53. BigMan says:

  54. peter muthanyula says:
