MCP confirms firing Kabwila, suspensions of ‘Nkholokolo’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has confirmed that its national executive committee (NEC) dismissed  spokesperson Jessie Kabwila for alleged misconduct and  that first-vice president Richard Msowoya and  Secretary General Gustavo Kaliwo have been suspended.

Kabwila: Fired

Addressing a news conference at the party headquarters  in Lilongwe on Tuesday, newly appointed MCP Publicity Secretary, Ezekiel Ching’oma said NEC  has also suspended party Second Deputy Secretary General Chatonda Kaunda and Tony Kandiero.

He said the members will be  summoned to  disciplinary hearing sessions.

“NEC agreed to suspend these people pending conclusion of disciplinary process,” he said.

Ching’oma, who was flanked by public relations officer Alekekeni Menyani and others,  said NEC has appointed Reverend Maurice Munthali as Deputy Publicity Secretary.

He also confirmed that that Wickford Sulamoyo is new party administrative secretary.

Wrapping it all Ching’oma said the party has  also appointed Elsenhower Mkaka as Secretary General.

He also confirmed that the dates for party elective convention will be between April 4  and 8 at a venue yet to be disclosed.

Ching’oma has since vowed that MCP will continue speaking for the Malawians on all ills which Malawians are facing.

Apapa MCP yagufa kwambiri because voters in the north are always undecided since the demise of AFORD. This can be confirmed by their voting pattern. Voters in the center and south are very decided and their voting decision is inelastic. Serious vote hunters always go for undecided voters. It is therefore extremely silly for MCP to abandon the north for the south. Anthu a ku m’mwela anaganiza kale zochita ndipo adzachita zomwezo; with or without Mia.

Wait for the post-convention activities before blowing your mind. Maurice Munthali is in the bag, so is Harry Mkandawire (touted for the second vice president position) and Cornelius Mwalwanda is also in the MCP bag. Then there are also young tested politicians from there in the MCP bag. Kezzie Msukwa is destabilising the DPP foothold there. So, dikirani kaye musanathe mau. Your Richard Msowoya is a failure. I am a northerner but would speak against him. He failed to sell MCP in the region, leading to DPP and PP scoring big there. His suspension is good riddance. After all, he… Read more »

Shithole leaders don’t learn from past mistakes. Mugabe fired his vice, where is he? Bingu fired his vice, what happened? Why can’t you wait for a conversion which is not far from now.

MCP fired a confusionist, not vice president. Mind your business in DPP where big trouble looms. Why are you taking panado on someone else’s headache? Umafuna o Chakwera oziweta njoka? Why are you complaining, Msowoya and his friends said they are forming their new party, apite tiwaonere hahahaha

This is a welcome move, even in our houses we discipline our own kids if they misbehave. The problem that madam Kabwira has is that she does not want to accept to be on a wrong side, she thinks she is always right. Take for example the time she was at Chancellor College during the academic freedom fight with late Bingo, she was always on top of everyone. Now the same attitude is that which she is displaying in MCP. This is not an academic institution but a political institution with different agenda. Therefore in politics, it is not that… Read more »

You do not discipline people through unconstitutional means. This is surely MCP collapse. If Chakwera is failing to uphold party constitutional provisions, can he manage to adhere to national constitutional provisions? This so called man of God is surely a national disgrace.

I SUPPORT THE DECISION… NO ONE IS A KING AND QUEEN IN THE PARTY, THEY MISBEHAVE THEY GO.. ANATITOPETSA. MAKA MSOWOYA HE ADDS NO VALUE IN THE PARTY AS HE CANT EVEN BRING VOTES FROM THE NORTH YET HE WANT TO BE TREATED LIKE A MACHINE GUN NO WAY.

MCP has missed on this one. the way i look at the party now, it needs people who are fearless as Kabwila. MCP , i do not know as to when your wonders are going to end but this is your downfall. whats sort of party is this which cannot forgive its members who have wronged? Instead of keeping members within and come with real hard strategies for 2019 and you are busy firing members. If you have eyes to see, see beyond the confusions in the party. otherwise time is passing and by the end you finish with your… Read more »
