Kaliwo fumes at order to settle MCP convention case out of court

Embattled opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) secretary general, Gustav Kaliwo, on Thursday walked out of Lilongwe High Court a furious man after it was ordered that issues he has with the party’s president Lazarus Chakwera be settled out of court.

Kaliwo:  Left court fuming

Kaliwo, a lawyer by profession, had wanted Chakwera to appear in court over a case that revolves around the party’s national convention.

The esteemed barrister had called for an emergency last year with an argument that members at grassroots level were unhappy with the present leadership.

The party took an injunction against the call wanting, instead, to hold the indaba from 4 to 7 this month.

The issue made headlines in the press which were heightened by a court order that Chakwera should appear in court for cross-examination.

But on Thursday Judge Charles Mkandawire ordered for the “discontinuance” of the case, and that the matter be settled out of court.

According to the order which Nyasa Times has seen, “the order deals with withdrawal and discontinuance of a claim by the claimant.”

Kaliwo who came to the court a relaxed man left “fuming” and refused to grant journalists—who rushed at him—any interviews.

He walked hastily to his car before speeding off. His lawyer, Powell Nkhutabasa, is the one who took interviews instead.

Nyasa Times understands that Kaliwo’s faction badly wanted Chakwera to appear before court to “humiliate” him.

Apparently, the faction is not happy with Chakwera whom it has accused of “dictatorial” tendencies.

Meanwhile, the high court in Blantyre is on Friday expected a determination on the injunction obtained by Kaliwo against MCP going on with a party convention.

The ruling may pave way for the convention to take place.

Allow did not see what was going to hit him! He did not anticipate this and not at all. But the he needs to know that MCP is where it is because of Chakwera. Again he needs to respect the fact that the party needs to accommodate new members who should equally be considered for positions.

Chakwera ndi amene wagwa nayo because he is the one withdrawing the case. He is fearing kuyaluka m’khothi.

Zakuwawa. This is what we call politics. Simunati. He knows how to play it. Look at 4billion issue, Salima issue and Simbi issue, Mia issue. Kabwira, Jumbe issue, his house issue etc. They guy is smartly winning in all those examples. Wait and see.

MCP battle continues. Chakwera thinks he is clever but one day he will reap what he is sowing. He came right from the pulpit and thinks he can make his way in politics by being nasty to others. Pastors of today! Power and money is their guiding principle. If they can’t get it in the church, they will try and get it elsewhere.

God fearing does not desert the altar but makes sacrifices for the nation from the altar. It is the highest position. Chakwera want just fame but MCP will never rule again.

We need godly people like Chakwera not mathanyulaz. Who told you politics doesn’t need pastors? Did you study history? Read history in England, USA, Africa you will see that Pastors or religious people have been core to politics.This myopic and achaic thinking that politics is for dirty people leads to corruption and cashgates. Chakwera is not the first pastor in Malawi to have gone for politics. During 1993/4 Aford had Reverand Pat Banda, there was also Reverand Dumbo Lemani, there is Reverand Mtonga etc. You call yourself wanna understand that you are limited in thinking together with all with similar… Read more »

Is this how Kaliwo looks? Just like beasts in dpp. He looks like beast Chponda and beast Mwanavekha Mathyola. A Kaliwo kapumeni ngati Pitala. Musatosokoneze.

Malawi politics is full of very old, uninspiring and sick people, leading a young and healthy nation. No wonder the country is in bottom 5 of Happy Countries in the world.
