MCP Regional Chairman for the Centre, Patrick Chilondola speaking in Ntcheu when he addressed  a political rally in the area of traditional authority Ganya, said MCP would use democratic means to push ruling DPP out of power in 2019, urging Malawians not to lose hope and declaring that free and fair elections would one day have to happen.

Chilondola said MCP is concerned that poverty is worsening in Malawi and that citizens are currently going through difficult times following the devaluation of Malawi Kwacha and economic woes.

“MCP will not leave you alone, MCP remains the only beacon of hope for Malawians,” said Chilondola.

“MCP under the leadership of Chakwera will have a rescue plan for this country,” he added.

He said the DPP government, which came to power through controversial circumstances, have failed to “rig the economy.”

“Come 2019, MCP will form the next government and will bail out Malawians from the current hardships. Mo its and no buts,” Chilondola said.

MCP regional Secretary for the centre Dyson Kamphambe Nkhoma said MCP is the only party which has never involved itself in cashgate corruption scandal, saying DPP were the chief archictect of looting from the public purse and they are shielding thieves in government .

“You are aware that United Democratic Front(UDF) thieved K1.2 billion, and DPP cashgated K577Billion while People’s Party(PP) cashgated K24 billion. You can see here that its only MCP which has clean bill of record,” Said Nkhoma.

Nkhoma said “Malawians are suffering under this [Mutharika] leadership.”

Taking his turn MCP regional campaign director, Richard Chimwendo, also spoke at length on various topical issues.

Chilondola was accompanied by seven members of Parliament and senior party members including former diplomat Dr John Chikago.

Meanwhile, MCP district chairpersons from the Northern Region have backed Chakwera in the rift which some quarters in the party believe is being fuelled by party second deputy director (strategic planning) Felix Jumbe.

Jumbe has been implicated in the rift having described as illegal his demotion from campaign director to deputise Moses Khombe in strategic planning, but he denies spearheading it.

“We vehemently refute the blatant lie that was put on radio that we, district leaders in the Northern Region, do not want Chakwera as MCP president. We want to assure you that we are solidly behind the current party president. We want to assure you that our presidential candidates for 2019 are Dr Lazarus Chakwera and his vice-president Richard Msowoya,” said Nkhata Bay chairperson Manase Chiumia.

“Chakwera has taken out the party from doldrums and it is now picking up. Last year, the party produced two MPs in the North, a thing that was almost impossible previously. In last month’s Local Government by-elections, our councillor scooped Chibanja Ward in Mzuzu,” Chiumia said.

He urged Malawians, particularly the young generation, to muster patience and stamina for the long walk or even the long jog or the long trot to freedom in 2019, saying MCP will remove the rotten system.

How many people have died under DPP leadership? In hospitals because there are no drugs it worrisome young and old have died before there time. You killed innocent souls on 20 July 2011 and later you declared that you butchered innocent souls. Bakili Muluzi sent innocent souls during his rule. If to compare during UDF & DPP rule more young & old have died because of your evil ways.


ndi mcp yonkha imene ingadzalamulile bwino zinazi ndi mbava




Iwe mcp zoti uzawine 2019 uyiwale lazaro Lazarus kuti kkkkk

Eat and drink with dirty money which you steal but it is temporary. As long as God is on the Throne of Mercy you will see your disastrous end. Around the corner destruction is waiting you with evil cash.


There were some ideots, like many here, who thought MCP could take over in 2014. I for one, vehemently schooled them that such thoughts were misplaced but they did’t listen. What was the outcome? Do not underrate DPP. Or do so on your own disgrace. None of us , DPP, will tell you where our secret lies. It’s not rigging but once again I won’t tell you. In 2019, the opposition, mainly MCP, will be heavily bruised and will cry out louder. If MCP had more of the Felix Jumbes, may be!

MCP yokhayo nde ayi musandikumbutse ineee. Timkabwezedwa osalowa mumsika wa Limbe chifukwa cha khadi. Eeeeeh chipani chankhaza zedi.


I can agree with MCP sentiments if it is led by the likes of the Jumbes not awa abusawa. Ntchito zawo tidadzidziwa pa pulpit.

Can MCP shut up for once and wait for 2019 to gauge themselves. Let’s see then if Malawians will want to be ruled by you otherwise we are tired of your stories.
