Activist Kabwila now MCP cheer leader

Academician and rights activist Jessie Kabwila  has  publicly shown her  Malawi Congress Party (MCP) membership   as she was captured amongst MCP dancing women at a political rally addressed by the party’s president Lazarous Chakwera.

Kabwila, a University of Malawi lecturer at  Chancellor College  who shot to fame for her leading role in the fight for academic freedom, has been attending MCP meetings but now is putting on the party cloth embossled with the face of founding president Kamuzu Banda.

A photo of Kabwila in the MCP regalia has been circulating on social media with her in a possible action of dancing despite being on record denouncing women dancing for political leaders.

Kabwila  has been critical of President Joyce Banda .

She was also critical of the previous autocratic regime of late Bingu wa Mutharika and led Chancellor College (Chanco), Malawi’s largest public institution of higher learning, in its fight for academic freedom after police interrogated a lecturer who led discussion in his class political developments in North Africa which saw the fall of oppressive regimes there.

The DPP regime accused the lecturers of encouraging students to rise up against his government at a time the country was experiencing acute foreign exchange shortages and fuel.

Banda who came in power after Mutharika’s death April 2012 has so far guaranteed academic freedom.
