Mia factor hits Lower Shire: Scores join MCP, PP governor leads exodus

After supporters of opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) asked former minister Sidik Mia to join the party, a lot of pary leaders in in the Lower Shire districts of Nsanje and Chikwawa are defecting to MCP citing leadership failures in their respective parties.

The supporters says they are joing MCP also to give solidarity to the Lower Shire political giant, Mia, so that he should  consider getting back to the front line politics through Lazarous Chakwera’s led party.

Mia is said to be engaging people on one-on-one to consult them on the calls to join MCP.

According to Mia, he would only be motivated to return to frontline politics if he will be given space to contribute to  promoting“ people-driven policies”.

Meanwhile, in Chikwawa 23 committees of former ruling Peoples Party (PP) defected to MCP led by District Governor Philemon Thom.

They announced their defection on Wednesday at Ngabu in Chikwawa in the presence of MCP’s Regional Executive committee.

Thom said he decided to leave PP due to lack of leadership as their founder is nowhere to be seen.

MCP Regional Chairperson for the south, Peter Simbi welcomed the new members asking them to display their capacities in supporting the party.

Despite this development, MCP is also currently facing serious leadership wrangles with a lot of in-house fighting taking place in the party.

A number of executive members were suspended from the party and the battles have now moved to the courts.

There was no immediate response from PP’s leadership on the defections.

  2. mercy Botolo says:

    That Sidik Mia is strong hold in the south and rich its laughable and not true please …..The DPP knows Sidik Mia more And can not be a big catch for me read this space on complete end of the man called Sidik Mia… It is important to guild people….. You remember his resignation Press Conference from PP was that quality of a rich man SAD…..south of malawi is bigger than individuals

  3. POLY POLICE says:

    MCP will win the next elections not because the lower shire has opened up to the party but because as a nation we are fed up with the level of cluelessness by APM and his DPP. Tell me if we has a functional presidency in this country. Tell me if this man was prepared for the top most job of the land. If you ask me I will tell you clearly that given what we are seeing now this country is almost on auto pirot. Each day that I God give us as Malawi we continue to waste it. The anger amongst Malawians of goodwill will remove APM on 2019. We can not watch from a distance our country going down the drain when our neighbours are progressing. I strongly believe that we need home grown talent to turn the abundant resources that we have into tangible services to public.

      So you are waiting for a state president to teach you spelling? Develop yourself first before expecting a distant figure like a state president to develop you. Look at the tones of spelling mistakes in a couple of lines you have posted. Shame.

    Mia and politics of nomadism! Builder or destroyer?

  5. Nthawi ya Gwanda anthu anali asanazindikire, multi party asanapange mature pano most people apenya, dpp is very evil, a devils agent that needs total destruction together with its bed fellow udf. I believe the devil behind all these evils is Bakili Muluzi and the problems implementer is this dull professor who is now grooming another dull dunderhead called atupele. This evil dpp did not leant anything how their self styled di tator Bingu died, God has his plans and evil implementers like dpp/udf loose. Mwalizunza kokwanira dziko at the expense of educated salvages through mwanamveka, chaponda, msaka, malopa, Kaliyati and the chief destroyer so called Beni Phiri. And there are these evil blind followers who are very poor in mind and always redicule what is right, these are the likes of Imraan Sadik from Mangochi and his friends. DPP/UDF ALIBE NZERU FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS: 1; THEY ARE CHIEF ARCTECTS OF CASHGATE. 2: WE HAVE PLENTY OF WATER IN MALAWI YET THERE IS NO ELECTRICITY AND WATER TAPS ARE ALWAYS DRY. 3: EDUCATION STANDARDS HAVE GONE DOWN BECAUSE THIS YOUR PROFESSOR AND ATUPELE DONT KNOW WHAT IS EDUCATION. 4: WE WILL NEVER HAVE GOOD HARVESTS BECAUSE GOD NEVER BLESS EVIL IMPLEMENTERS AND UNLESS THIS JUSTICE DESTROYER BAKILI PAVES WAY FOR BETTER PEOPLE: 5: DPP WILL VERY SOON DISINTEGRATE OR SELF DESTRUCT BECAUSE IT IS SITTING ON A TIME BOMB(MARK THIS STATEMENT PLEASE?). You exalted Bingu and called him lots of heavenily names, mose wa lero, mpulumutsi and so many inhuman dpp self exaltations, God taught you a lesson but you chose to pay a deaf ear! Why? Because you are evil. Atupele is in DPP because he is evil too and i wonder why Chilima doesn’t see anything on this? LET US JUST BE PATIENT, DPP WILL FACE THE SAME CONSEQUENCE AND FATE. PAC GAVE BINGU 60 GOOD DAYS AND BEFORE THOSE 60 DAYS ELAPSED HE COLLAPSED AND DPP CHANGED HIS NAME TO DANIEL PHIRI. VERY SOON THEY WILL CHANGE SOMEONES NAME AGAIN WHY? NJAUJU’S BLOOD IS KNOCKING ON DPPs DOOR. MULUNGU SIOSEWERA NAYE, FALAWO ANALANIKA KUNZUZA ANA A MULUNGU DPP NAYONSO ITILEPHELA CHIFUKWA SATANA SANAPAMBANEKO NKHONDO NDI YESU. GOD IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL.

      We heard the same story before 2014 elections. We are prepared to hear it again after 2019. You have my greatest sympathy.

    Indeed ! Politics is a dirty game .4

    Wait and see !

    There was a time when Gwanda Chakwamba was giant of the Lower Shire. Tell me if he helped any party to grab powers from the UDF. He was even a candidate of the once mighty MCP but he could not make it. What makes Mia more miraculous than Chakwamba? He will not even stand as a candidate as Gwanda was. This will just make people from the north angry for the discard of their son, Msowoya. Ndaletu zimafunika political mathematics. My brother Chikutumbwe, what makes the future brighter for MCP? Are you really in this country or you are self-exiled like Winston Msowoya? Why are failing to see that MCP is being destroyed day after another?

    1. Chidakuamba says:

      @ Santana, you are just one of the bunch of the DPP grumblers with this Mia move. Just adapt to your clueless and thieving leadership! And musanati mulira mpaka mutuluka misozi ya magazi!

    2. Marium Kuyer says:

      Gwanda did not make it because he did not want to work with Tembo. Politics is a game of numbers. For a party to win it must penetrate into other political regions in which the other parties are dominating. DPP won because it managed to penetrate into the Central region and Northern region.

  9. Swaggah James says:

    JZU managed to destroy lower Shire giant Ngwanda Chakwamba; and this time Lower Shire is coming back again to MCP with full force. Beware all you who oppose the static leadership of Chakwera. Mia will destroy Kabwira, Jumbe, Kaliwo, Njobvuyalema and the rest of kapilikons for good. He is coming with new type of politics that has not been witnessed in MCP before. Soon or later MCP leadership will be at south.

    1. Mugonapamhanya says:

      Mia is coming with new type of politics? The type of politics he learned from UDF, DPP, PP, etc?

  10. Cash Gate says:

    ndale pa Malawi, zabwino zones basi

  11. CHIKUTUMBWE says:

    THIS IS FOOD FOR THOUGHT TO MCP REBELS TO REFLECT SERIOUSLY IF WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS IN THE INTEREST OF THE PARTY. THEY NEED TO ENGAGE IN SERIOUS DISCUSSION WITH MCP LEADERSHIP AND PLEDGE THEIR SUPPORT TO THE PARTY AND MOVE FORWARD.

    ITS A FACT DPP IS LOOSING GROUND DUE TO MANY CHALLENGES ROCKING THE COUNTRY AND MCP IS SEEN AS THE ONLY PARTY TO BELL THE PEOPLE OUT OF THIS ECONOMIC QUAGMIRE.

    CHIDZANJA, KABWILA, NJOBVUYALEMA, DZOMBE, JUMBE, FOLOMA SHOULD DESIST FROM BEING USED BY DPP AND KILL THEIR PARTY AT A TIME THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT FOR THEM’.

    DPP KNOWS THIS!!!!!!!!!!

    MIA WOYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    1. ndakuona says:

      Where is your argument that DPP is losing ground coming from? The article clearly states that PP supporters are the ones who have joined MCP because they are following Mia. No single DPP member has joined the MCP. You cannot destabilize DPP in the Lower Shire amwene. Mwachepa heavy. If not careful this will be the end of Sidik Mia politically the way Mpinganjira ended. Once associated with MCP Mia should forget remaining a giant in the lower Shire. In anyway those joining MCP are just after Mia’s wealth. Akufuna akadye nawo zaulere.

        Iwe ndakuona ndiwe chidele~!! malawi, including you and your family, is suffering because of this PITALA government. No lights, no water, no cash and you are busy defending them SUPITI

        1. ndakuona says:

          Iwe triple C ndiwe mtumbuka wopusa kwambiri. Instead of just cpountering my argument you go personal without any nfundo. This is the reason A Tumbuka inu simungawine. You don’t know politics. You always think being emotional will win you votes, nix!!!!!!. Be calculative and patient. Malawian politics is very digfferent from western politics. Politics is not kutukwana wina but being strategic in winning the hearts of those on the other side of the fence. WAMVA IWE MTUMBUKA WOPUSA.

      3. Dan says:

        Mia is by far a good political calculator than those stooges who have become so myopic and veneral that they cannot see the writing on the wall. We are yet to see one of the best dramas in Diesel Petrol Palibe

  12. Point says:

    Dont accept Mia, just continue enjoying ur businesses. They just want money from you. Malawi politics is shit.
