Chakwera drops a hint about Mia running mate

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera has hinted that his second-in-command Mohammed Sidik Mia may be chosen as running mate in the 2019 presidential elections and that the two have the ability to wrestle power from Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Speaking during a rally he addressed in Mchinji on Sunday televised live on Times TV, Chakwera accused the   DPP that  has destroyed the hopes of Malawians so much in the last four years through its failure to build on its past campaign promises and crucially, through its corruption and cronyism.

“The DPP cannot be allowed another term of failure. MCP should govern and get Malawi prosperous,” he said.

He hinted that he is ready to pick Mia as his running mate.

“Discard an old pair of shoes and have a new one,” said Chakwera in apparent reference to President Peter Mutharika and Vice-President Saulos Chilima – who is leading his party UTM.

“And here is the new pair,” said Chakwera while looking at Mia.

Chakwera’s MCP and Chilima’s UTM are the real players with the ability to wrestle power from DPP.

Mia in his speech earlier, said Malawians need new leadership and not those who have been part and parcel of the DPP failure – an apparent attack to UTM which its leaders are a breakaway from UDF.

During the rally,  Chakwera said MCP government will work hard to improve the country’s transport networks  as well as  health sector by training more state registered nurses make sure public  hospitals delivers services as required and on time with fully backed availability of medicines, medical equipment,  staff and beds .

“We want to promote checks and balances in all government institutions,” said the MCP leader.

Chakwera and Mia are scheduled to hold another rally in Blantyre this weekend.

By reading all comments down, it has proved that the Team Chakwera and Mia is the best,, I tell you why? It’s because it has raised the anger of many people which is the salt of Politics, when you see that people are happy with your choice and or what you think is right, just know that you have goofed yourself, kikkkk New shoes has come because Mia once left politics, by the way he has joined MCP am not expecting good comments that can come out from your mounth since your mouth is full lies and hates,, ndiye poti… Read more »

Chakwera, do your research in order to figure out who would be the most preferred running mate for your party. Gone are the days that people would just accept a running mate at face value. The upheavals in Iraq after the down fall of Saddam Hussein and Arab spring revolt in Syria, which provided an opportunity for ISIS to execute a violent campaign in the region mostly intended to wipe out non Muslims should be food for thought to Chakwera before he dreams of running the country. Mia is a non Christian, and has no feelings that he would protect… Read more »

That is why i Said first, i wish to know how old ar u?

I am 45 years and you? There is nothing rubbish in the comment. As a Christian who reads the Quran to fully understand a Muslim’s behavour, I find it very frightening that Christians should be used to usher Muslims in high offices. Reason being that Muslims use the Quran as an administrative tool in almost daily activities. I have seen it all in Sudan and Egypt, and Christians are at the receiving end. Non Muslims under the employ of Muslims often complain silently about the treatment they get from them. Supposed people like you are in the high echelon of… Read more »

MCP can never win an election under Chakweras leadership. For MPs yes MCP will have some. But for Presidency forget it.

I will remind you, that’s what I always say,, people choose to be stupid and think that everyone will be stupid,,, choose to oppose thinking that everyone will oppose, choosing to be ignorant thinking everyone will be ignorant. Therefore to win as MCP party led by Chakwera is the same as to win Pariamentaly seat lead by MCP, I tell you my friend,, ask DPP what will happen,, they have the answer, comment on MCP because you have decide to do that, not because you have nothing to do, if at all you have nothing,, I can give you something… Read more »
