Belekanyama snubs Kaliwo in Malawi Congress Party convention drama

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) executive member and legislator Lingson Belekanyama has snubbed  party secretary general Gustav Kaliwo who included his name in planning a controversial convention from July 7 to 9 .

Belekanyama: Rebuffs Kaliwo

Belekanyama said the convention being organised by Kaliwo is unlawful and he cannot be party to it.

“I refuse to be party to it,” said Belekanyama who Kaliwo listed him as deputy secretary for the organising committee.

Belekanyama, who is also a member of parliament for Lilongwe Msinja South, said he can only recognise a legitimate convention which has the blessings of the national executive committee (NEC) and not what Kaliwo is organising.

He said he would only accept a position confirmed by MCP president Lazarous Chakwera.

“There are procedures to be followed when you are preparing a convention. The Kaliwo convention is not for MCP,” he said.

Belekanyama cited Article 39 of the party’s constitution which mandates the NEC to call for a convention.

But Kaliwo, a lawyer by profession, insists the party constitutionally is supposed to hold conventions every year and he will  hold it either in Zomba or Mangochi on July 7 to 9.

Kaliwo, who was handpicked by Chakwera after the elected SG Chris Daza left to join the People’s Party, is accused of  being on a crusade to bring confusion in MCP with support of external forces.

Lest we forget, DPP has killed more people in its short stay than MCP did in its 31 years’ stay in power!

The entire MCP of crocs has its roots today in UDF, Bakili himself being the architect, DPP where you have people likes Dausi, etc. Don’t deceive us, I may not have been there but history tells it all. A Kaliwo, mwachera diwa poyera; mwatumidwa. Kusakonda chipani: Ngodya zinayi zigwire ntchito basi. Zipita kwanu ku DPP.

If your MCP is failing to resolve internal squabbles, can it manage national matters? No chance for Meat for Crocodiles Party (MCP).

Magazi akuwira a Gadama, Chawinga , Sangala, Matenje ndi chi nantindi cha anthu onse anaphedwa ndi chipanichi kuchokera 1964 to 1993. Bakili anachiyalusa chipani chi pa kampeni yake ya Bingu ya 2004. All what people know is that this MCP is a crocodile party and that DNA is still intact even in their office corridors hence why these demonic spirits still wrangling them. We who suffered and those who lost their lives( MTSRIP) are laughing at this madness in the MCP. By 2019, this party will be totally dealt with just like it was blown off by Bingu in his… Read more »

Read the Mwanza Murder Report. It laid bare as to who liquidated the three ministers and parliamentarian Chiwanga not Chawinga as indicated. As for the DNA, it is found in every human beings. MCP is just a name of an association or a club. However, during the MCP regime everyone used to say : “Angwazi muzamva zothaitha” meaning that people took that as a licence to deal with anyone who opposed the MCP and its leadership. It all started soon after the 1964 cabinet crisis. Henry Masauko Chipembere even figured out that Kamuzu was being told lies such he even… Read more »

Kaliwo has misplaced sense of power. He has never been elected by anyone to any position in the MCP. So, he does not even have any powers to convene a convention. That is where the argument starts and ends. As to whether his political career will end or not, you have to ask yourself first when Kaliwo became a politician.

Mr Kaliwo what you are doing ndi dyera. Please solve this internally . What you are doing is giving DPP chance. Election are near and you want to bring another person pamene pano zikuoneka kuti mpata wa congress Ukuoneka. Shame Kaliwo and your selfish team…..zoona mukuti Njovuyalema angakhale munthu opikisana ndi Peter…….sangalalani a DPP poti palibe opikisana nao

the process of rebranding is not all that simple. i think Dr Chakwera knew it already that he would undergo these challenges and i hope he prepared himself. To mr kaliwo tell your sponsors that they are playing a loosing game which they won’t win. whether you like it or not Chakwera , day after day is adding winning votes. a day is coming when Malawians will say enough is enough.

You will dream forever. MCP won’t produce a state president. Gwanda tried and failed twice. Tembo tried and failed twice. Your novice Chakwera tried once and failed. A true democrat would have quit immediately.
