Harry Mkandawire eyes MCP vice presidency

Former Peoples Party (PP) senior official, Harry Mkandawire, who has now joined the main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) says he is eying for the position of second vice presidency in his new party.

Mkandawire becomes the second defector to the party to express an interest to vie for the vice presidency of the party after billionaire politician Sidik Mia, a move that has divided the party.

Mia says he wants to vie for the first vice presidency position.

Mkandawire’s announcement has however caused a storm especially from some northern region MCP members who are accusing the veteran politician of using his money influence to grab positions from members who have been in the party for a long time.

MCP chairman for the north Osborne Shema said party members should not get worried and scared because party positions are voted for during party convention.

“Everyone will be able to vie for any position in the party so there is no need to worry over Honourable Mkandawire’s decision to vie for the second vice presidency position in the party,” said Shema.

Four senior party members, including vice president Richard Msowoya and secretary general Gustave Kaliwo, have obtained a court injunction restraining the party from holding the convention until the officials were involved in the organization of the convention.

The best MCP can do is to have Sidik Miah as President and Harry Mkandawire as Vice President. This is the only combination that can win the election for MCP.

MCP NEEDS MORE UNITY, DISCIPLINE, OBEDIENCE AND LOYALTY WITH ONE PURPOSE: BOOT OUT MBAVA M’BOMA AND MAKE MALAWI A MIDDLE CLASS NATION. United we stand, divided we fall.
Vacate that injunction asap

Msowoya alibe ndalama. He is worried that he can’t match Mia. He has no support from the north nor Southern. He is a selfish donkey who when voted into power he forgets about people that voted him. Let’s go to the convention and you will confirm.

confusionist just like Chakwera. The party is doomed. Just like Mia he is A big political bitch who keeps changing political parties. Youth of MCP rise and fight these 3 bafoons. It’s time for revolution. Let’s not allow Mia, Chakwera and Mkandawire ruin our party. To tell with Mia money. To hell with Mkandawire money. To hell with Chakwera!

At least its clear that people are joining political parties purely out of greed. They are not there to serve people but their own self. Then we wonder why, when they’re in government, they end up looting with impunity. My dream is that one day, Malawi votes in a credible and incorruptible leader, who will lock up all those that have looted from the coffers dating back 1964. They will spend the rest of their lives going in and out of court and there children will suffer the consequences of their parents. One day…..it will happen in this decade.
