A Chakwera, tasinthani chipani chioneke truly national, not central regional. Muzaluzansotu mu 2019 mukazitengela chibwana. The party needs structural transformation, not superficial /cosmetic changes. Malawians still remember the bad sides of MCP, don’t be cheated they have forgotten, no, and don’t uncover those wrongs as they surely will sink you. MARK MY WORDS. You should almost be saying MCP is a changed party and show how it is a changed party. Ngati a Kamuzu analephera in the end it is because he did not see what the people were seeing in his administration, and you seem to be going in… Read more »

MCP is a party which cannot cope up with the modern ERA. How come they still hold on to the DICTATORIAL So called ‘Four Corner Stones’ which are absolutely “UNDEMOCRATIC” which if applied today, will inflinge human rights in many ways . Kodi ndani uyo obadwa mu ‘Democracy’ angasapote zaozo. They just talk of ‘Reform’ in papers but in reality its still like what was there in the 31 years. Do not forget, Atsogoleri ake ndi timilungu tosafuna kutsutsidwa. Uyu adatopa ndi chachikhumi ndiyenso paja amaoneka ngati abweretsa change koma…. kokoliko kwacha!! Tambala malilidwe ake ndi omwewo kaya wa Chimetere,… Read more »

The problem in Malawi is people can not accept changes or being dropped out. This is normal in every job and position in th whole world but not for Malawians. This is why they keep jumping from one party to another when they are left out or changed. And also thi i why there is cash gate. How can these people be serious political members. There is more to learn when it comes to politics. In Malawi politics is no to serve th nation but business. Unforunately. Look at Kachele. When he was dropped out he joined DDP thinking he… Read more »
