Kabwila rubbishes Jumbe’s decision to join DPP: ‘I will remain MCP despite challenges’

Malawi Congress Party’s (MCP) member of Parliament (MP) for Salima North-West constituency, Dr. Jessie Kabwila said she will remain MCP member despite that some members within the party are hell bent at finishing her off politically.

Kabwila said this on Sunday during political rally she organized at Katitima Primary school ground in her constituency.

She attacked some members for creating false stories about her association with other political groupings,  insisting that she cannot  join the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

“It’s still absurd to learn that some party members are still on my neck. Even going further to dissolve my constituencycommittee. They are doing all this despite my issues with the party is in the court.

Kabwila, however, reiterated her commitment and loyalty to MCP, saying whatever happens, she will die a member of the party.

“I will remain MCP and die MCP,” fumed Kabwira franked by MCP vice district chairperson and constituency chair.

Kabwila disclosed that her fight is not against the current readership of MCP or individuals but making sure that the party’s constitution is being respected and followed.

“My fight is to make sure that everyone respect and follow MCP constitution and not against the current readership as others portrays,” she said.

Kabwil said she believe that MCP is the next government and that joining DPP is wasting of time and killing of her political career.

Meanwhile, Kabwila said the decision by MP for  Salima Central Felix Jumbe owho was expelled in MCP to join DPP  is not wise.

Jumbe has relocated and wants to contest the 2019 tripartite elections in Salima North Constituency.

Some political commentators described the move as a ploy by Jumbe to give way to the current Minister of Justice, Samuel Tembenu SC, who is likely to contest the Salima Central parliamentary seat on DPP ticket for the second time.

Ironically, Jumbe floored Tembenu in the 2014 tripirtite elections with a small margin.
