Chakwera: No rift

Sunday Times report indicated that there are cracks in the rank and file of MCP as evidenced by comments made by spokeswoman Jessie  Kabwila supporting the controversial MPs salary hike and then the denouncement of the same by Chakwera, who is also leader of opposition.

But speaking in an interview with Nyasa Times on Monday, the MCP leader said: “There are no divisions within the MCP as people are saying, if anybody wants to understand the party position on the recent salary hikes, they should go back to my paper which I presented during the press briefing and I don’t have any additional comment apart from what I already said.”

He  stressed that MCP remain focused on their role to provide checks and balanced  and how they can make Malawi develop again.

On her part Kabwira accused some individuals  of orchestrating the divisions.

“Some people want to take advantage on each and everything. What I can say is that there is no divisions or cracks as people are alleging,” Said Kabwira.

Chakwera took swipe to the salary hike describing Peter Mutharika as unethical president.

hE said MCP was never consulted on the hike and if the party was even consulted, they could have gunned down the proposal at its budding stage.

Chakwera said he was even ready to work without even getting anything as far as he was serving people honestly.

Any kingdom divide against itself cannot stand.Thus what Jesus himself said: MCP has no future as long as Chakwera is on the driving seat.He is a morden day Jonah who has given a cold shoulder to his calling.Leave politics alone REV Dr Chakwera.

How can your own spokesperson speak contraly to your stand on salary hikes? If you cannot manage your own party how can you manage Malawians ? Pick up your the dusty bible and go back on your knees !
