Chatinkha fails to vacate injunction on MCP convention

Drama in the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), the major opposition block in the country, continues when opposers of the party’s president Lazarus Chakwera, failed to vacate an injunction obtained by Chakwera  on Saturday so that they could hold an emergency convention.

Chatinkha: Fails to vacate injunction

The anti-Chakwera faction—led by Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma, a former close aide of Chakwera who fell out with the party leader just after the 2014 elections—attempted to vacate the injuction on Saturday but could not succceed.

Chidzanja-Nkhoma insists on the call for a convention as she accuses Chakwera of mismanaging affairs of the party, including breaking its constitution.

In an affidavit dated June 9 2019 by MCP president Lazarous Chakwera filled in support of the application for the injunction, he argues that those interested with a convention were supposed to formally put across to the party’s NEC the request for an emergency convention.

Chakwera said  the emergency convention  is “wrongful”

Ayi kunali Nyasaland African Congress ndiye MCP sichinayipetu chayamba koma kuti MCP under Kamuzu chinalamulira bwino especially kuti in the public service munalibe. Zinthu zinkayenda on merit. Anzeru nkumasankhidwa kupita ku University or ku ma National secondary school regardless of their back ground.


Kaliwo, Chatinkha etc are now very worried about how they will refund the money they got from whoever.

I think the gang just wanted some fun with MCP. Imagine. MCP obtained an injunction two weeks ago and Chatinkha etc decided to vacate it on the 8th, 2nd day into the so called three day convention.

What a bunch of idiots.

MCP again in 2019? I was old enough in 1994 when Dr bakili muluzi pleaded with Malawians never ever to vote for this party again. what else do they want in government. as for me MCP was supposed to apologise to Malawians first.


Sorry Chanthika.There is only one great problem with jealosy; you feel pains as God keeps on blessing those people you envy. My only advise to you is that join the people you envy, and celebrate with them. Otherwise, you are reducing yourself to nothing.
As for MCP colonies, don’t dare to change your torch bearer come 2019, Chakwera is the only remaining hope for Malawians now.


I think this woman is run out of ideas. How can she attempt to vacate an injunction this is ridiculous. She should go away and if those people who gave her, Kabwira and Kaliwo money to disturbing the party have failed, that party is a national party and its first party in Malawi politics built on four cornerstones namely unity, loyalty, obedience and discipline. These are useless people don’t want to have.
