Chakwera and Kaliwo agree to ‘bury the hatchet’ after cease fire talks

After months of damaging infighting in the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP), secretary general Gustav Kaliwo and his deputy Chatonda Kaunda have agreed to ”bury the hatchet” with party president Lazarus Chakwera over their differences, Nyasa Times understands.

Kaliwo stop infighting

Kaliwo and Kaunda who announced the party would be holding a national convention from July 7 to 9 this year following growing concerns from some of the party ’s regional and district leaders with the leadership, in a bid to stop infighting have agreed to stop the feuding.

MCP sources told Nyasa Times that Chakwera and Kaliwo held talks and agreed that if they have any political differences, they should air them internally.

The feuding pair left having agreed that it was time to “bury the hatchet and move forward”, said the MCP official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

MCP second deputy secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka, who has now turned into the party ’s spokesperson, could not divulge any information on the matter but hinted on cease fire.

Kaliwo has been claiming that on several occasions he had tried to have an appointment with Chakwera, but failed to secure an opportunity to meet him with his last face-to-face meeting on party issues being in August last year.

Good news.


Kkkkk people cannot see that Kaliwo wanted to penetrate the MBC to boost Chakwera!!!! Ndinu ana nonse amene mumapanga comment. Kumaganiza. Next time think critically!!!!!!!

Simple evidence: anomaly to invite people like Daza who is not MCP member; fake signatures of deceased district chairs etc

Kaliwo, thank you for the sacrifice


Thank you very much Mr. Kaliwo. Thank you Dr. Laz. Now eyes are on Dr. Njombole Levi Nyondo and Dr. Timothy Nyasulu. Please do likewise. Reject DPP tactics of divide and rule.
