Kaliwo, Msowoya get injunction stopping MCP convention in April

Embattled opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) secreyray general Gustav Kaliwo has obtained a fresh injunction against the party not to organise a convention in April this year expected to put in office new leadership.

Kaliwo: Obtains court order to stop MCP convention

Kaliwo through lawyer Kalekeni Kaphale has successfully obtained the court order restraining MCP from implementing suspension orders which the National Executive Committee melted on party vice president Richard Msowoya and Kaliwo.

Other party officials reprimanded by the NEC include Jessie Kabwira and Chatonda Kaunda.

The order also stops MCP president Lazarus  Chakwera, who is first defendant,  and Ezekiel Ching’oma, who is second defendant representing NEC members  of MCP to stop  plans to hold a convention until after a determination of the court.

“This order restrains you or any other persons from inviting the claimants to disciplinary inquiries and from suspending them and also from convening a convention  of the party until trial of the action or until further order of the court,” the order reads in part.

MCP is planning to hold convention in Mzuzu on April 4 to 7.

The opposition nMCP  resolved to suspend Msowoya, who is also Speaker of the National Assembly and Kaliwo pending disciplinary action for their alleged role in destabilising the party.

Ironically, Kaliwo has been arguing that an early convention would help to resolve some of the challenges the party was facing as well as help the party to prepare well for the 2019 Tripartite Elections.

Shithole Country

The two have proven to be useless polititicians or shithole politicians. At the beginning of the wrangle they called for a convention to remove Chakwera. This is done and they are against it. Can Msowoya really be a leader? Can’t he be thankful to MCP for making him what he is. He is afraid of Mia and I can see DPP helping these people. They are people that no Malawian can trust.

Msowoya, Kaliwo, Kabwila, and the group amafuna convention ndimeneyo tsopano mukuti ayinso convention!! Ndinu zitsilu machende anu. Badyani ndalama za D P P koma ndi misonkho yathu

Kaliwo and Msowoya you have my support. These people are not against the convention. All that they want is fairness. We hear Mrs Mia is chairing the fundraising committee. You remember during the PP convention, this woman and her husband bribed delegates at the convention ndi nsima ndiwo zake nthumbwana and the husband corruptly defeated BJ. That is the same strategy these crooks are using to defeat Msowoya. CSOs if you are not biased, demand the list of contributors to the K70 million MCP raised during the recent fundraising. Some quarters suspect the money has been collected from the asians… Read more »

Some people still amaze me, how can you say Kaliwo and Msowoya are agents of DPP. Kaliwo has been there for MCP before the people you are favouring now. Kaliwo stood for the party , fought legal battles for the part and today you start accusing him it is unfair, MIA or Chakwera has not been there when MCP faced storms. It is a curse for people to open their dirty mouth to accuse this man. You make noise yet you have not given any support to the party but Kaliwo sacrificed for the party. The constitution clearly state that… Read more »

MCP ili mmadzi. Aidziwa dziko


Anthuwa safuna chilungamu(Msowoya and Kaliwo) Ndimbuzi zophunzira. Umfiti kapena chiani? Ganyu mukuchitayu mukapanda usamala mupezanaye vuto..

Seriously, what more proof/ evidence does any sane person with 5 senses need to understand that the likes of Msowoya, Kaliwo and others are actually beneficiaries of state sponsored grand looting of tax-payers money, other than the recently exposed K4 billion scandal? If the whole finance minister shamelessly and illogically attempts to legitimise plundering of such huge sums of money in parliament, how much can one just imagine is being wasted on such political conspiracies? JUST look at the number and caliber of people who, ALL OF A SUDDEN have CHANGED TUNES & clearly started advancing DPP agenda? Just imagine… Read more »

Crying for Hon. Richard Msowoya. I can’t believe he is behaving this way. He is the person I have respected for the whole of my life. I have now started believing these people are being sponsored. Shame!

Richard Msowoya is also a human being. He can’t accept to be used and dumped like a condom. No ways.


Useless and shameless politicians
