The group of youth calling themselves northern region Malawi Congress Party (MCP) youth league held a news conference in Mzuzu on Wednesday to accuse party president Lazarus Chakwera of creating anarchy and disorder by inciting Malawians to rise up against President Peter Mutharika’s administration.
Chakwera has issued a stern warning that he will be forced to lead a mass protest against worsening corruption in government, and accused President Mutharika of giving corrupt big wigs in his government amnesty from corruption crackdown.
The MCP president threatened to call supporters onto the streets if President Mutharika will not meet the eight demands he has set as plan of action and that he immediately comes to Parliament in person to give a full report of the progress.
But speaking to reporters, the youth league members clab in party regalia challenged Chakwera that they will not join him on th streets on his protests.
Boardman Mwanyama who said he is deputy chairperson of MCP youth in the northen region, said the call for revolt is unacceptable.
“The youth will not accept to be used,” Mwanyama who had difficulties to mention the name Chakwera properly, said.
Chakwera, who is also Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president, accused Mutharika of treating with kid gloves those he purported as ‘big fish’ in his administration, declaring the issue was now beyond debate.
He alleged that Mutharika has defied the will and wishes of Malawians long enough, and it is time for Malawians to defy him.
