Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera is storming northern region this weekend for a series of political rallies which will take him up to the border district of Karonga, the home of MCP vice president Richard Msowoya.
MCP administrative secretary Potiphar Chidaya said Chakwera he will hold two rallies at Mzuzu Upper Stadium on Saturday September 7 and in Karonga the following day.
MCP vice president Msowoya comes from Karonga and Chakwera, a former president of Malawi Assemblies of God, is married in Rumphi.
The north tour follows his maiden rally at Nchalachala in Kasungu on August 18 2013, one week after his election.
The rallies have been boosted by the financial support that the party is receiving
According to Chidaya, Chakwera will be in the Southern Region from September 14 where he is expected to hold a mass rally in the commercial city Blantyre.
Chakwera is being viewed widely in a positive light for leadership position.
University of Malawi political scientist Joseph Chunga said Rev. Chakwera provides the kind of leadership Malawi needs because most of the current recycled politicians are trapped by old-styled politics.
“Malawi needs leaders who can serve with integrity and who are prepared to part ways with the mindset characteristic of the current politicians. I think he is one of few who are capable of this,” said Chunga.
