Chakwera told a mass rally in Mzuzu that Malawi  economy was in a state of crisis as poverty was spreading at an alarming rate.

“We want to save this country from hunger, corruption, lack of jobs and quota system,” said Chakwera at Chibavi primary school ground in Mzuzu  he was joined at the rally by Alliance for Democracy (Aford) leader  Enock Chihana and Peoples Party (PP)  Kamlepo Kalua.

Chakwera thanked other opposition leaders for working together with MCP in search for common ground  “so that we can engage in effective common action.”

The MCP president who is also leader of opposition said he is re motivated by serving the people not power or greed..

Chakwera  further condemned  education quota system, saying it was a cause of injustice.

“Because of quota system, many people are illiterate and politicians take advantage of people’s illiteracy and corrupt them with little money to cause violence like what we have seen,” said Chakwera in reference to regime thugs who came to disrupt the rally.

The thugs believed to have been organised and sponsored by the regime, also attacked party women who attended the rally, and stripped some of them naked.

Chakwera said DPP should not waste money in buying pangas to attack political opponents but use to improve the quality of lives for all citizens.

“We are committed to balanced national development,” said the MCP president.

He said Malawi needs to move forward together at the same force.

Out all the presidents Malawi has had, PETER MUTHALIKA is the worst. He is clueless, no vision.

Abale musataye nthawi yanu pachabe pomalimbana ndi APM. APM ndi dhilu and APM and DPP will win come 2019. This is a fact and nonnegotiable. There is no single person in MC P, PP and the forgotten AFORD who can stand against our beloved APM and win. Mwagwa nayotu inu.


APM and his cabinet do have the vision to turn around our economy. There are a lot of recycled people that do not forward thinkers and are bent to self enrichment and stomach development.

need to pursue marco policies that can spur development rather than policies are increasing dependance of populas on the government.

we are not happy to be on five year holiday with APM. we will never get this precious time we are wasting praising people for doing nothing


When will this campaign come to an end? I think its time for the implementation of what we were promised in 2014 campaign period by the party whose manifesto got greater mass support from the 4 regions.Then what should be done is to keep an eye on them cross checking whether they are delivering what they promised us or not. Not campaigning wait 2019.


Nonse ndinu zitsiru agalu achewa aku south. Mungovota mosaganizira ulendo uno muzavotere Atupele bola kusiyana ni APM.
Pama President onse amene anayeserako anali Honourable BAKILI MULUZI
