Kazombo, Kandodo lead MCP MPs to Chilima

About 32 members of Parliament from Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  and independent benches have met  Malawi Vice President Saulos Chilima asking him to lead a grand coalition in a fresh presidential poll ordered by the Constitutional Court, Nyasa Times understand.

Chilima of UTM (L) and Chakwera of MCP: Can they pair in fresh elections?
Kazombo: Promoting alliance with UTM
MP Kandodo Chiponda:  For alliance with UTM

The members of parliament were led by Deputy Speaker Madalitso Kazombo and Kasungu South East MP Khumbidze Kandodo over the weekend.

“Yes it’s true they met. They asked for an audience and asked him to lead an alliance against the DPP. The MPs say they don’t think Dr Lazuras Chakwera can win votes across the country unlike Chilima,” said a source who said the meeting lasted two hours.

The MPs mainly from Kasungu, Dowa, Salima, Northern Region, Mchinji and Dedza say they believe Chilima has better chance to defeat the DPP.

This new twist now escalates the divisions in the main opposition as most of its senior officials from its Central Region base have already dumped party vice president Sidik Mia openly, a position they are advocating to give to Chakwera in an electoral alliance.

Others are pointing fingures at businessman Simbi Phiri who has been working with former MP Rhyno Chiphiko to bring Chilima to lead the MCP.

However, insiders from Chakwera’s base claim founding president Kamuzu Bandas family which includes Kazombo, Khumbize Kandodo and former Minister Ken Kandodo are working to oust Chakwera and return presidency to Kasungu.

Chakwera and Mia are yet to make a statement.

I am a Chilima man but here I don’t agree. My fellow Malawians (DPP members and supporters excluded of course), I have two points to make here: 1. It is the unity created between the two parties during the court case that won us the case. Let us not divide ourselves now and by so doing give an opportunity to the thieves to rob us again. Yes, they can do it in the midst of our confusion. 2. Let us simply go by the numbers that we scored in the annulled election. Let Chakwera lead, Chilima follow as running mate… Read more »

You have not rested your case bwana. You have not yet told us why Chilima can not be better as president. I do not know if you have looked at the two parties manifestoes. Personally, I want accelerated development, and UTM has that element in its manifesto. Secondly, the nullified results do not present at all the correct scores, that is why they were nullified. Chilima got more that what those tippexed figures say. I think I can rest my case now. 😉 What do you think?

This is all the work of DPP destabilizing MCP through Chilima – DPP is happy. What Malawians should know is that the biggest enemy of Chilima, at least in his mind, is MCP and not DPP. He hates MCP to the bone. All he wants to see is MCP falls down. Why? because they rejected him in the May-21 elections regardless of a ruthless campaign he displayed in the central region. People just brushed him off because his whole campaign lacked political cause. Moving forward he does not imagine staying out of power for the next 5 years. He will… Read more »

koma muli mmalawi mommuno?. muli mzaka zingati?. we need youthful intelligent and sharp shooter osati zomaganiza bus itapita kale. in court chilima went with nullification idea while chakwera went with recounting idea. on EU report chakwera agreed to meet them and later changed upon seeing that his colleague has denied them in the first place.This is a clear indication that chakwera doesnt trust himself.

“People love Chakwera for his character” Which one? The one of boycotting parliament only to change his mind after the court ruling instead of just saying that he could not have been able to prepare for court and attend parliament at the same time. The same elections he went to court for is the same he is accepting the MP post for just because he won??

You wonder why people chose to be unstable all the time. When everyone though MCP is united and strong. When we all thought MCP is like to form the next government there comes another whirlwind of confusion. We all know Lazarus Chakwera is a strong leader who has managed to amass national support with Mia as his running mate. Let him lead the touted grand coalition. Chilima can come in as a minor and indeed he is. This guy destabilizing a large political party like MCP is unfortunate. It means as Malawians we do not have principles, we do not… Read more »
