MCP declares Chilapondwa winner in Ntchisi south: MP Nkhosa Kamwendo floored

Main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has declared former cabinet minister Ulemu Chilapondwa winner in the party primary elections in Ntchisi south.

Ulemu Chilapondwa: MCP candidate

This means incumbent member of parliament Langton Nkhosa Kamwendo has lost.

There was no immediate comment from Kamwendo but Chilapondwa said he was excited with the news.

“I am very satisfied, this is how things should have been,” said Chilapondwa.

MCP spokesperson Maurice Munthali said a team of appeals committee is satisfied that Chilapondwa won the elections.

The initial primary elections were marred by violence and disputes forcing the presiding officer to defer the announcement of the results.

The party is this Saturday expected to hold primary elections in Dedza east whose incumbent MP is Juliana Lunguzi and Salima north west whose MP is Jessie Kabwila after initial polls were marred by violence.

Regional party officials have told the aspiring candidates to hire body guards as they are not guaranteed of their safety when violence erupts again.

Koma zachisoni zedi.
Now violence is the default weapon in intra party politics within MCP? These regional officials of the Party have must have some evidence regarding the anticipated serious potential violence. And if Kabwila or Lunguzi lose, they will inevitably blame the loss to even the threat of violence! Kikiki.

MCP will lose because most popular candidates who are personally hated by Chakwera are “losing” the primaries. They will then run as independents. People like Kabwila, Lunguzi, Njobvuyalema etc. Mark my words.

This shows strength of the party. These people are fighting for the positions meaning the party is fat anyezi ndi tomato wakondera bwino. Not imposing candidates like diphwiphwi no very bad and no intra democracy a party full of killers.

Firstly, I think you are stuck in the past and i can assure you that if that is the path you continue to take, you will never achieve much in your life. MCP moved on. MCP rebranded. The current crop of leaders have nothing to do with whatever happened way back, before you were probably born. MCP is democratic, MCP is the only party with a leader whose integrity is not questionable. MCP leadership is not surrounded by thieves and thugs. MCP is not corrupt. MCP is the party many Malawians believe has what it takes to solve the problems… Read more »

How difficult is it to hold primaries for MCP? It’s obvious there is a big problem. This is the start of the fall of Dr Chakwera. Mark my words.

Get your facts straight. There are certain areas in this country where whoever wins primaries for a particular party wins that constituency during elections. In such areas, expect tough competitions. This is true for big parties like MCP and DPP. So, in such areas expect misunderstandings, refuting results, fighting etc. if not handled well and especially if there is not enough security. So, probably the best for MCP is to ensure there is enough security e.g. hire the police. You need also to take note that MCP is poised to win next year’s elections and as such competition will be… Read more »

Ma kape inu a MCP , even Ku Salima, komwe DPP inakuthizimurani 3-2 munakhapana. Dr Chakwera has lost control of the party due to his nepotism. He wants his yes boys and anthu a Assemblies of God basi. Juliana Lunguzi constituency is a case in point. That girl is a shining star koma kufuna kumugwetsa mxiiii. Chakwera kuwina u president wa Malawi, Kamuzu azadzuka kumanda sure.
