‘No ifs, no buts’ MCP to bail out Malawi from economic woes

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has assured Malawians that the party through its president Lazarous Chakwera will bail out Malawians from the increasing poverty and widening gap between the super rich and the poor.

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.

    Kkkkkk,waste of time ,lazalo in 2019 you wil go back to work for the good lord.you will be a good Prophet, heal people, forget about state house

  2. George Kamanga says:

    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.

    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.

  7. Okay? says:

    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!

  8. Happy Eduardo says:

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

  9. Okay says:

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

  10. Maggie Lucius says:

    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.

  11. Telling the Truth says:

    Every Malawian, except DPP supporters, is seeing and knowing that under Peter Mutharika the economy is sinking. The Kwacha is now at K600 to 1 US Dollar from K400 in May 2014. Peter Mutharika is raising fees and charges without any consideration for poor Malawians and cost of living has dramatically gone up. He said he has solutions to the problems caused by cashgate-where are the solutions? We are now being subjected to the worst electricity blackouts since 1964.

  12. mulibwanji? says:

    Zivute zitani MCP will NEVER rule Malawi again. Chipani chokupha. Magazi ali mmanja tho!
    All the people joining MCP are disgruntled power hungry people.

    Next is UDF then PP then DPP again.

    Munya muona.

  22. Muhilima says:

    Its a pity to hear what MCP members are saying, for sure you cant rule this country Leader of opposition yes, you deserve. And one other thing you should bearer in mind is this is not a campaign period please MCP members lets join hands in order to develop this country for the betterment of the generation to come.

    Mmm MCP blood suckers all of you can’t change Malawi to anywhere you wronged Malawians before your so called Tate died.Your gathering is a symbol of pure democracy which you denied people to practice before UDF forced you to accept it so don’t foul us.Although several parties have cheated us into exploitations we hope one day they will walk their talk not you killers remain out of the government till Jesus comes.I am wishing good to Hell you thugs of people from chewa heritage.

  25. Mr Dowa says:

    MCP ndi ulendo wa kusanjika 2019

  26. clement says:

    DPP can’t afford losing elections against mcp never. It’s good that you know rigging tactics so that you will not cry in 2019 that DPP rigged. DPP has got winning formula just wait. People are not suffering coz of DPP and it doesn’t need someone to tell just google what is go on in other countries economically. It’s only Britain, USA and very few countries not affected but the rest completely fucked up.

  27. Kapondo says:

    The people who turnished the image of MCP left it and joined the so called innocent parties. Look what is happening now. On top of the killing habits they have gone into heavy stealing fr Govt coffers. MCP has seasoned nature and patriotic politicians whose aim is to develop Malawwi. Akadakjakà anjala mpeza pano chipani hi chitatha kale.Over twenty years in opposition is nt a joke. Keep it up MCP. We are neshinxd you ngà nga nga.

  28. Becks says:

    Which party do you want to win 2019 elections? DPP? MCP?
    APM versus Chakwela. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
    Okonda kuba amavotera zimene tikuzionazi
    Nokha mukudziwa.

  29. George Kamanga says:

    DPP just ask Evil Justice Kenyatta Nyirenda & Evil Justice Maxon Mbendera to assist you in rigging the economy the way they assisted you in getting into power.

  30. Peter says:

    Interesting when others are approving the DPP public service reforms….Malawi at 50 years…good at thinking that when you are in opposition you can do better.

  31. Abambo says:

    Has Dr Chikago forgotten what MCP did to his uncle Dick Matenje?

      Koma ndipo eeee. Mpaka kuiwala za kuphedwa kwa ambwiyache?

  32. Kaboola DZ says:

    Do it now so that when 2019 come we will recall and vote for you

  33. Wisdom of Karonga says:

    Even if MCP can be labelled “Chipani cha Kupha”, I think DPP is the worst party in terms of reduction of poverty level,regionalism or tribalism,and promotion of unity;and the party ranks second from MCP in hindering freedom of expression. Afterall, MCP’s actions were in a one-party system.

    Thus, claims by some DPP supporters that MCP is the worst party in Malawi’s history of existence are an overstatement and misleading.DPP is a party of silent killers and arrogant maniacs.Recent killings of Njaunje,Chasowa,and demonstrators are a testimony to the party’s undemocratic attitude and a mercenarian ideology.

  34. Wanga ndi yemweyo says:

    Do we have any credible political party in Malawi? The Most Cruel Party now wants us to believe they can save us? The Undemocratic Demented Fools, the Death Propagating Party, and the Poor Peasants all said the same thing before they occupied Capital Hill. And all these came after you, the Most Cruel Party, had been kicked out because you were more interested in sending people to their graves than governing. Look, you are already fighting for positions when you are still in opposition, what will happen when you come into power? And….mbumba ya Chakwera yavala nsalu ya Kamuzu? I see here serious lack of confidence. Kaya, zanu izo, koma musatinamize apa, nonse ndi chimodzi-modzi palibe wabwino apa.

    Paja anamangidwa uja wa MCP nkhani ya Cashgate ndi ndani? Paja anapasidwa ndalama za cashgate kupangira Campaign ndi ndani?


    I’ve always thought that 2014 offered the best chance for a Northerner or a Centraller to win the presidency. First off, Malawians vote on regional/tribal lines and second, the South had 3 very strong contenders; but, as we now know, DPP had its unconventional ways and won it.
    MCP, please stop day-dreaming. Malawi is a long lost cause; and, in 2019, DPP(APM or AAM or SKC) will still win the presidency by application of even newer methods.
    I, for one, would welcome a 2019 MCP loss because, then, the party will join us as we seek to end the currently failing unitary system.
    Malawians ought to be ashamed of themselves for putting their tribes ahead of the greater national good. Basi ma president azingochokera ku South? Kwenikweni ndipange advise anthu kuti atavoterako mTumbuka ndiye ndapalamula. What’s wrong with us?

  38. Pharula says:

    Please MCP this strategy will not take you any where. Go back to your drawing board. How clean are you on cashgate? If you don’t know we know you in out.

Plz tell us what you shall do and stop telling us things that we know are not true

  44. Verily, verily I say to you all MCP die-hards: Chakwera wont be the president of this country come rain or sunshine because he has cheated God big time. Chakwera vowed he would be president of the flock, but now he has loved money but God is not pleased with Chakwera. Chakwera, repent and come back to God. See where you have lost your first`love, Chakwera, return and repent!

    I will only vote for MCP only if Chakwera distances himself from the Nyau nonsense. The youth league that used to beat people now don Nyau regalia and torture people including school kids. Chakwera is in the opposition but his NYau are victimizing people from all walks of life. If he is voted into power Nyau (youth league) will be obsessed with power and they will start killing people. BIG NO TO MCP

    Now we hear some lunatic has planned to take with him an entourage of 80 people to US for the UN summit. What kind of madness is this? Included in this tourism list are some idiots who have not gone in class and they say they want to negotiate business deals. This is nonsensical. H.E. should know that a foolish leader is the one who want to please everyone. It never works, it leave the leader more confused. I doubt very much if the rich countries (the German and the UKs of this world) would even send 20 people to UN. What is damn wrong with Malawi? What we do and our status do not match at all. Think again Mr President.
