Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera is bringing together Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya and Lower Shire politician, Sidik Mia at a political rally in Nkhotakota district this weekend after there has been cold war between the two as they all eye to be Chakwera’s running mate in 2019 elections.
Msowoya, who is also MCP first vice-president and Karonga Nyungwe member of Parliament (MP), has been speak tough after Lower Shire political giant Mohammed Sidik Mia, whom some quarters expect will partner Chakwera, was welcomed into the country’s oldest political party.
On Saturday 29 July Mia and Chakwera are expected to hold a rally at Nkhotakota LEA school, and Mia said Msowoya will be in attendance.
MCP officials confimed that attending the rally will be MCP deputy president Richard Msowoya, deputy secretary generak Eisenhower Mkaka, Ken Kandodo, Sosten Gwengwe, Ulemu Chilapondwa and other opposition leaders.
The coming in of Mia in MCP has deepened already existing divisions as he already declared intentions to become Chakwera’s running come 2019.
On the other hand, Msowoya has also vowed to be Chakwera’s running.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
