Kabwila says she would win November 17 primary polls

Salima north west legislator  Jessie Kabwila has said she would win the highly contentious November 17 primary elections in her constituency only if the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) would use original party structures.

MCP  is set to hold the primary elections in her constituency and in Dedza east whose MP is Juliana Lungudzi after initial polls were chaotic.

Kabwila and Lungudzi accused party regional chairman for the Lakeshore Augustine Chidzanja of corruption and bribery, alleging he took money from other contestants to win the elections.

“I am going to win the elections. I am a woman of the people. My constituents love me because I am always with them in times of joy and in times of tears,” she said.

She said she would dispute if party officials uproot existing party colleges and put new ones in a bid to make her lose the election.

Kabwila also said she was optimistic that party president Lazarus Chakwera will win the 2019 elections.

“The DPP has completely failed. They have combs of maize on their party cloth but people do not have food in their homes, this is an insult. People do not know UTM, we cannot talk much about it any way,” said Kabwila.

She therefore said Chakwera and MCP are the only hope for Malawians.

She also disputed reports which say she is in bad books with her party because she was making political moves to join the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), describing the reports as silly.

A Kabwira phokoso too much. You are your own enemy madam for thinking you can take on the party leadership and expect to survive. You were fooled by Msowoya and Kaliwo and now you are realising that you are nothing politically without the MCP.

Jessie Kabwila and Juliana Lunguzi are two women who need to be retained in MCP at all cost. They don’t carried away easily and they are loved in their respective constituents. Therefore any manipulation to bar these two strong women will bring catastrophic results in MCP. That will be the demise of MCP, mark my words. I Have been in these two ladies constituents and I know what I am talking about.

Before politicians comment about UTM, they must also comment on the 50+ parties in the country, including PP, UDF, AforD, etc. I find ut amusing that UTM is talked about in the same breath as MCP and DPP.

Actually UTM is the most talked about , the most commented on, of all the parties. For MCP to win, they believe they must defeat UTM. For DPP to win they believe they must defeat UTM. On the other hand as far as UTM is concerned, their main contender is not MCP, buy DPP.
