Chidzanja backs Chakwera-Mia pair in 2019, dismisses electoral alliance

Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Lakeshore regional chairperson Augustine Chidzanja on Tuesday rubbished talks that MCP would form an electoral alliance, arguing that that the country’s oldest  party is very powerful and capable of dislodging the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  from power in 2019.

Chidzanja made the remarks during an impromptu rally the party’s vice president Sidik Mia addressed at Works Ground along Kamuzu Road in Salima.

Mia was in in the district primarily for Muslim prayers and the party gurus took the opportunity to have him address a political rally.

“The MCP convention elected Dr Lazarus Chakwera as presidential candidate and Sidik Mia as his deputy. This is a strong pair and we are confident that  the two will dislodge DPP in 2019,” said Chidzanja amidst applause and ululations from the mammoth crowd which attended the rally.

On his part, Mia, thanked the people of Salima for coming in their large numbers on a very short notice.

He then went on to outline a number of development activities his party will do to turn around the economy of our country once the party takes over power in 2019.

Pressed to weigh in on the alliance talks, Mia said their National Executive Committee (NEC) has no idea about such talks, saying the party’s game plan is to go solo in 2019  and that MCP will have enough weight to push DPP out of power.

On Sunday during a mega rally which Chakwera addressed in Mchinji, he hinted about a Mia running mate in 2019.

“The pair here,” said Chakwera while looking at his deputy Mia, “is ready to take Malawi to greater heights.”

During the Salima rally, Senior Chief Kalonga, who advised politicians across the aisle to be civil in their political speeches, was in attendance alongside the seemingly much loved shadow MP for the constituency Gerald Phiri.

Member of Parliament for Salima South Jessie Kabwira also graced the rally but legislator Juliana Lunguzi, who was seen in Salima going about her own business, never attended the rally.

He is indeed a disgrace. He should stop harrasing Juliana and Jessie who are the strongest women in MCP and the whole parliament. We in Dedza east love Juliana. Chidzanja’s problem is that he has already eaten bribes from other people, please Chakwera and Mia remove this pest adzagwetsa boma lanu.
