Crowds at Ngabu: MCP making inroads in the south

The unveiling took place at Ngabu in Chikwawa where thousands of people converged at the political rally.

“I am welcoming you in MCP. Together we will be stronger to build better Malawi beyond 2019,” said Chakwera.

Mia whom the MCP regard as a political giant in the Lower Shire was delighted with crowds.

In his address, Mia said  Malawi has moved many steps backwards 53 years after independence.

He said the huge turnout meant MCP has been embraced in the Lower Shire.

Mia said MCP now becomes a national party.

His joining MCP has supposedly split the MCP as he is being viewed as a possible runningmate to Chakwera.

MCP Vice president Richard Msowoya did not attend the unveiling of  Mia, fuelling the discord in the party even further.

Mia said he will support to develop the MCP in the Southern and Eastern regions of the country.
