Chakwera salutes Sidik and Abida Mia for being workaholic as MCP make inroads in south

Leader of main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Dr Lazarus Chakwera has showered praises to seasoned politician and business magnate Sidik Mia and his wife Abida Mia for their efforts in reviving the party in the southern region.

Chakwera said this during a rally he addressed at Malindi Ground in the Malawi’s lakeshore district of Mangochi.

“The Mias are doing a fantastic job—we are appreciating their efforts in strengthening the party,” said Chakwera to the Mias amidst ululations from the crowd that graced the rally.

The MCP leader  was happy to see the crowd the party commanded in the area considered to be the stronghold of the former ruling United Democratic Front (UDF).

“Things have really changed. To see such a crowd here in Mangochi attending MCP rally—the area where people used to treat UDF as their religion is very strange,” said a resident of Malindi.

Speaking during the rally, Mia pledged that he will drill 20 boreholes in the area and dish out 5 Million Kwacha loan for women and youths to start businesses shall they vote for their candidate, Ambrose Hamisi.

MCP, PP, UDF have all featured their candidates but residents say the Tuesday’s by-elections will be a two horse race between the MCP candidate and the UDF Candidate.

The Malindi rally was attended by Harry Mkandawire, Maurice Munthali, Joseph Njovuyalema, Francis Muluzi and Ezikiel Ching’oma among other notable figures.

@Kaka ni dada How strong is MCP in the south? How strong is MCP in Mangochi? As already said Malindi is not purely Yao area. MCP thought can bring magic and win in the area taking this advantage. Now that it can lose in the neutral area how dare they talk of penetrating Mangochi? Malindi is populated by people from Likoma which happens to be north of Malawi. This is why Harry Mkandawire and Maurice Munthali went to show themselves in that area with majesty. If they won there, they would say it openly about the real home of the… Read more »

Very impressive results of workaholis by Chakwera standards : 2-0. MCP was saved by voter apathy in October by elections. Thanks to the people of Mangochi and Mulanje for coming up with the latest and current political barometer.

Malawians,have you not learnt from the latest catastrophic immigration invasion into European nations by Muslims posing as refugees and yet they were not.They invaded the trusting Europeans in day light.As soon as the gates were opened for satanic people,they forthwith started to randomnly killing the white people and imposing Shalia law on the Christians.If the people of Malawi have not learnt a lesson from these religious thugs,you will one day wakeup surrounded by Arab Muslims.The Europe you used to know,is not the same,people are slaughtered like goats in their Churches and Mosques are erected everywhere in London,Germany,Sweden,France,Italy,,Greece and many parts… Read more »

Malindi is not typical Yao area. It is a place for those who came from Likoma Island and they are Tongas. They are viewed as people from the North. MCP should not shine on areas which have never been strong-holds of any party in the south. Let them show their strength in Phalombe or Chimwala in Mangochi. We want MCP to invade areas which are real strongholds of a party as DPP is doing in Kasungu. Whatever the figures MCP can get in these by-elections it cannot be indication for a win in 2019 because it is also losing many… Read more »
