Kamlepo says MCP want Malawi one party state again: Atupele talks of Chitipa transformation

Firebrand politician Kamlepo Kalua, who was fearless and combative in denouncing the fierce and dictator Kamuzu Banda, in the early 90s, when winds of democracy stirred up the shores, has warned Malawians that Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has the desire for Malawi to slide back into one party state again under Tonse Alliance.

Kalua, who is Minister of Lands, was speaking during a campaign rally in the northern district of Chitipa addressed by Atupele Muluzi, who is running mate for the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and United Democratic Front (UDF) alliance.

Tshwee-mwana-Tshwee!” shouted Kamlepo in his usual slogan to large crowds that turned up which responded ‘Tshweee!’

“MCP still has the one-party state mentality and they have already started brainwashing people with the ‘Ife Tonse boma’ talk,” he said.

“MCP are not democrats, they cannot be, and their political ideology is not about liberalism. They are conservative. Tonse will bring more confusion than the stable DPP-UDF government,” said Kalua.

He stressed that MCP has an agenda to make the country a one party state again because its leader Lazarus Chakwera is known not to want any opposition even within the party ranks .and wants everybody to tow his line hence two MCP lost two secretary general who opposed him – Gustav Kaliwo and Chris Daza.

Kamlepo, a former president of the  defunct Malawi Democratic Party (MDP) who had a first short for presidency in the historic first democratic election in 1994  when Bakili Muluzi defeated dictator Kamuzu Banda.

He ran again in the 1999 presidential election where he finished third place with 1.4 percent of total national votes beating the late president Bingu wa Mutharika at 0.47 percent.

Kamlepo is credited for influencing political decisions, including the 1990s demonstrations against the spiralling cost of living, march against third term bid and the July 2011 anti-DPP government demonstrations.

His  unrelenting ways of battling incumbents, saw him arrested over 9 times—the worst being the time of Bingu wa Mutharika who, constantly, kept him behind bars.

To every Malawian, Kamlepo is a controversial figure who is not afraid to speak out and shame every force contrary to his average.

In his speech,  Muluzi promised that government will  transform Chitipa district with numerous developments.

“We have in mind Chitipa Nthalire tarmac road, Chitipa tarmac road connecting to Tanzania, new district hospital, grain silos, so many to mention.”

“For all these to happen, we urge you people to unite and vote for this experienced leader, APM for a better Malawi.” Atupele urged.

Atupere extended his appeal to the youth not to be used by politicians in demonstrations which has led to infrastructure destruction, pointing out Karonga District Commissioner’s office as well as Forest office in Chitipa.

Before the rally Atupele Switched on Malawi Rural Electrification Project (MAREP) phase 8 in the district at Chipwera Trading Center.

Council Chair for Chitipa district, thanked government for bringing electricity development to the area saying it will arrest a number of challenges that people from Chipwera were facing before due to lack of electricity.

Agreed entirely. Besides, DPP Cashgate and thievery robbed Malawians of billions of Kwachas resulting in nonavailability of medicines in hospitals and so many deaths. Which, then, is the more cruel and a ruthless party?

In the past 12 months, MCP has shown that it is a violent party – chasing people from the southern region, destroying property and shops. Chakwera created Nsundwe to terrorise us. So, NO to MCP.

You must be very stupid, the recent stoning of UTM supporters in Phalombe is not violence? The recent petrol bombing and killing of the three Tambala family members in Area 24 Lilongwe is not violence.A LOMWE inu ndinu anthu odzikonda ndichifukwa chake pa 23rd June apa mukupita ku opposition.The opposition Tonse Alliance is shining more than the ruling DPP everywhere in Malawi.

DPP and UDF have ruled Malawi for 26 year. And we are all seeing the result. Even in Lilongwe the most beautiful building is still the RBM of building. The most organized office structures are still Capital Hill. In BT business district all u see is Delamere, Chayamba, and Development house. (oh and Keza, built by the former president himself). Only additions in 26 year are Reserve Bank and National Bank. Makata Industrial area is dead. The railway systems are dead. Bakili sold government entities and was acting like an agent and getting a cut for selling things like David… Read more »

Unfortunately the aftermath of serial ’empty promises’ to the North speak louder by their action. Hence it is said that ‘ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS’. This is just one of those gimmicks to earn some cheap votes. Once beaten twice shy! The majority of Northern Malawians have become wiser for the obvious reason and will therefore vote very wisely!
