Forget about ruling Malawi again, Msonda tells MCP

Outspoken  politician Kenneth Msonda, who is also a Member of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has said the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) will never rule Malawi again.

Msonda: MCP will not return to power in 2019

Msonda was speaking in Ndirande-Makata ward in Blantyre during the official launch of the party’s campaign for the forthcoming by-election slated for October 17, 2017.

“The opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) should forget about ruling this country again. Memories are still fresh on how the party mistreated its innocent citizens during their one party regime,

“From 1994 to 2014 general elections, we have seen MCP performing miserably. That is a clear indication that the party has lost ground and will never be voted back into government,” said Msonda.

Taking his turn, DPP’s Southern Region Governor, Charles Mchacha asked scholars and historians in the country to publish many books on atrocities MCP committed during 31 years of its rule.

“We have many kids now who were born after MCP was voted out of government and as such they don’t know how the party ruled Malawi. I am therefore appealing to Chancellor College scholars and historians to write many books on atrocities MCP committed,” said Mchacha.

He said the books would enable the current generation to make wise and informed decision on which party to vote for during elections.

MCP ruled Malawi with an iron fist from 1964 to 1993. It was ousted from government by United Democratic Front (UDF) in the multiparty elections held in 1994.

Mr Keen Observer, Malawians can run out of patience but changing government will be very difficult. You see, the problem is that we vote on regional lines. A man from Nkando even if he is tortured to the maximum will never opt for Chakwera/MCP to rule. He would rather like APM rule while he is sleeping with hunger than live in Malawi with Chakwera on the top seat. It was the same in 1993 during referendum and 1994 during the first multiparty elections. Despite all evidence about MCP atrocities there were people who still wanted Kamuzu to continue ruling us.… Read more »

Who Is MCP? It is a party that ruled during a one party era of which all the adults in that time, we were part & parcel. Atrocities were not committed by only the executive members. The members from the District, Area & branch were all in the wrong of whom most of them are today the members of either DPP, PP, UDF or AFORD so I don’t know exactly who is a holy cow in Malawi? I’m not a sympathiser of Malawi Congress Party but can we say that things are better now than during MCP rule? The answer… Read more »
