Union Party ‘wooing’ Mzomera Ngwira

A new political party called the Union Party (UP)  led by Canada-based former parliamentarian Paul Sydney Shawa  is said to be courting the former People’s Party (PP) official   Reverend Christopher Mzomera Ngwira into its fold to add some ‘polish’.

Mzomera Ngiwra: In new Union Party

Mzomera Ngwira was this week expelled as Provincial Chairman for the North for causing violence and being anti-democratic.

The move to lure Mzomera Ngwira is part of a strategy to strengthen leadership of the new party UP.

“Hon Mzomera Ngwira  will give the Union Party some polish,” said Shawa who confirmed the parliamentarian  is the party’s law and order secretary.

Paul Shawa  remains its interim president and Prof. Newton Kalengamaliro is  deputy president.

Shawa, was as Member of Parliament for Mzimba South constituency from 2009 to 2014 before he was voted out following the victory of PP candidate Maquenda Chunga in the 2014 tripartite elections.

The 58-year-old Shawa,  a trained lawyer who was prosecuted in 2003 in Canada where he was practicing and admitted to stealing funds from clients, said he was the new party to be   an instrument for participation in the long struggle to uplift the plight of long-suffering Malawians.

Other people key members include Cassamajor Mulonyeni as general secretary, organizing secretary Thandiwe Ganda, foreign secretary Jonathan Kudambwe and Farm transformation secretary Dr Francis Nindi .

Kodi zipani mukufuna zikhalepo zingati? Simple arithmetic: the population for Malawi is 17million against 35+ parties = >2million. zonsezi mukufuna maudindo, kusokoneza kapena kutchuka? abale anzanga, zipani zachuluka. USA is very rich but how many parties are there? Tsopano pakhale lamulo loti ngati chipani sichipeza mpando, chichotsedwe pa mndandanda was zipani zobvomelezeka.

Tapulika.

Selfish leaders. Malawi don’t need another new political party. What Malawians need right now is revolution to get rid of these selfish leaders who have made us Malawians suffer. If Mr Shawa want to Malawians let him join the already existing political parties. Mr. Shawa will not help.

Parties have emerged with a lot of manifestos.To my surprise not any of these parties have said a new thing.Their tune is just the same with incoherences here and there.I beg these political titans,to stop forming new political parties,but formute strategies that can be used in tackling problems which our country is facing.
