MCP celebrate veteran Mayi Dinala’s 80th birthday, royalty to party

The great moment of jubilation had on Wednesday encompassed the home of veteran Malawi Congress Party (MCP) member, Mayi Dinala, in Chitawira Township in Blantyre when she celebrated her 80th birthday in style.

Mai Dinala celebrated by MCP

The celebration which was organised by MCP Young Patriots from the Southern Region, had seen the wife to the MCP First Vice President, Abida Sidik Mia gracing the occasion.

Mia could not hide her innermost joy, when together with other MCP Southern Region officials, cherished the moment with the high-spirited family members.

“I am just impressed with her love for MCP,” Madam Mia said in praise of her lifetime dedication and loyalty to the Malawi’s oldest and deep rooted political party.

According to Dinala’s long time acquintance who has closely followed her since 1982, the 65 year old Edina Kanyenda, the celebrant has throughout the years symbolised the “motherly figure” in MCP.

Testifying to have become MCP member since 1958 when she was 30 years old, Dinala said she was among the people who welcomed the first MCP President and Founder of Malawi Nation, the late Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda when he landed at Chileka Airport upon his return from the diaspora.

Said Dinala: “Since that time when I saw the late Kamuzu arriving back home and committed my allegeance, I have never waivered throughout the 50 years as a loyal member of MCP. So joyfully and proudly I hereby renew my loyalty and love for MCP.”

With a family of 14 children and 54 grandchildren, Dinala takes a moment to advise the youth of today and modern day MCP members to emulate her good example by remaining genuinely loyal to the party.

Come May 2019, Dinala is upbeat that MCP will carry the day through the forth coming  Tripartite elections when she said: “With the leadership of President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera together with his Veep Sidik Mia I can assure you that we have already carried the day and there is no doubt about it.”

In the spirit of respect, and even deference to our Seniors, we should give the fine lady, Ms Dinala, time to enjoy the space, and revel in the good old days, as she’s them, in her dotage. She deserves the lime light, to be sure. Koma tingochita criticise pang’onong’ono (And we are NOT raining on her day) Kikiki She’s day dreaming if she thinks the non-strategic oChakwera will win the Presidential election next year. He really has no momentum at all: appearing like he’s in a rut, and that is why he is depending so much on the “mighty” Mias… Read more »

Liar, most rural communities other than Mulhakhos do not always vote on tribal/ party lines. All they want is genuine development. For example Ntchisi overwhelmingly voted for DPP in 2009 because of a tangible development (tarmac road) late Bingu had initiated. Similar situation can be reported elsewhere in the North.
Only Mulhakhos believe they are so special to vote for other tribes regardless other than one of their own. Check MEC records. Other tribes have to seriously be taking note of such a trend or they will be fooled for ever.

“So what?” It’s an important point raised here, as it pertains to how we became a democracy!

Point of collectio MCP is not a party for the Chewa’s but it has huge following in the centre. The issue is if they’re celebrating its good and well to them so dont affiliate party issues to our tribe. Ukunva @Machemba.

I often wondered why Kamuzu did not built her a house like he did for the other prominent MCP women leaders. She deserverd .Just a thought.

Why do Lomwes speak Chichewa through out. Why does Alamu Pumbwa Mwakula speak Chewa. Joyce Banda and Bakili spoke Yao in Yaoland. Gwanda spoke Sena in Nsanje. Harry Mkandawire and Chakufwa speaks and spoke Tumbuka respectively. Koma kumato ndinu alomwe when you can’t even greet each other in Lomwe. Chikumbu , Lundu, Mkanda, Fukamapiri are Chewas.
