Kaliwo refuses to resign: Apparently MCP will force ‘dead man walking’ out

Secretary General of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Gustave Kaliwo has  been asked to resign or risk being fired by party president Lazarus Chakwera but he  is showing no signs of yielding to that pressure.

Kaliwo: I will stay put

The call to resign was made by MCP legislators during a news conference at the party National Headquarters in Lilongwe on Monday.

They  said Kaliwo’s calls for an unconstitutional convention in July to resolve concerns raised by some former district and regional chairpersons means he is now a “dead man walking” in the party.

Reacting to the call for resignations, Kaliwo tried to reassert his shattered authority, saying he will stay put.

Kaliwo, a lawyer by profession, said he will not withdraw his membership of  MCP and cannot be forced out.

He challenged that unless MCP president Chakwera who appointed him, decided to grind the axe he will not resign.

They know the party’s constitution right which leads to someone being fired or told to resign.

“I cannot resign,” said Kaliwo.

His  stand has been met with anger, with one MP warning that MCP will make Kaliwo’s  position untenable.

Kaliwo is under fire for  insisting on having a convention from 7th to 9th July in the Eastern Region with members on parallel rank and file  and even though the legitimate MCP officials argues that the call is unconstitutional and lacks the blessings from the national executive committee (NEC).

He  is proven he can tough it out against the plot to fire him.

Kikkkkk, Manyasa cant some with intellectual capacity like him (Kaliwo) see things right? A Kaliwo have forgotten one thing that wasnt been voted for he was just been appointed am sure he is aware of this, the same person who appointed him has a capability of removing him from the position.

Albeit having powers to call for convention but under the blessings of the NEC, which NEC blessed his call for early convention?

Bwana Kaliwo. Osaopa.. you have been in the party longer than the so called their president. You will know the support you have from central region on the days of the convention. You will never walk alone, central region is solidly behind you.

Mwalemba m’madzi bwana Kaliwo. Greed has ruined your reputation. What are you going to do after you have bee thrown out of the window by MCP, because that’s what they will do? May be you will join DPP but this party is notorious for using people and dumping them later. Remember Kutsaila?

Of course you could go back to legal practice. I wonder whether you will have any clients after spoiling your CV as you have done.

I pity you.

Let’s not just criticise Kaliwo outright, but let’s also see the other good side of it. Remember, even the Bible says,”Otsutsana nafe athandizana nafe”, and the same Dr Chakwera once said, “Don’t throw the bathed water together with the baby ie ukamaliza kusambika. mwana”.Am not disowning totally Kaliwo’s idea complete to. The bigger picture of this whole issue, is for MCP to hold its Big Convention before December 2017 bcoz by 2018 it will be too late for a Party that wants to dislodge the ruling DPP in 2019,Let be Honest my fellow MCP supporters.
