MCP, family celebrate Kamuzu’s life: Chakwera to champion for rebuilding of party headquarters

President of the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Professor Lazarus Chakwera has called on all party members within and outside the country to join hands in rebuilding the once mighty party headquarters in order to propel the legacy and agenda of founding president late Hastings Kamuzu Banda, who died in 1997.

Chakwera said this in Lilongwe during the remembrance prayers which the party organised in order to celebrate the legacy left by Ngwazi Kamuzu Banda.

Despite Ngwazi bearing the legacy of father and founder of Malawi nation, no one from the government, came to attend the prayers.

However, despite the absence of the government officials, the ceremony went as planned.

“Ngwazi Kamuzu Banda had a vision for this country. Now, to show our solidality, I hearby announce that we should start rebuilding this MCP headquarters, and I call upon all MCP members from all walks of Malawi to come and join hands in rebuilding the our headquarters,” said Chakwera.

Chakwera,  who is also Leader of Opposition in Parliament, said “only dedicated people are welcome to join the rebuilding of the headquarters exercise,”

He said Kamuzu was only leader with the welfare of people at heart unlike what Malawians are seeing today.

“He was a man of standards. How many people have we lost in our hospitals due to lack of medicine, how many people have we lost due to lack of clean water, this is because we have leaders who do not care for their people,” said Chakwera.

Former Speaker of National Assembly, Lewis Chimango gave a lengthy lecture which bordered on the legacy of Ngwazi Banda.

In his turn, former Minister of Finance, Ken Kandodo speaking on behalf of Kamuzu family talked about various developments initiated by Kamuzu which said will remain as historical in the eyes of Malawians.

Kandodo commended tax-funded maouselum built for Kamuzu.

Kamuzu, who is believed to have been born on February 15 1898, died at a South African hospital on November 25 1997. He ruled Malawi from July 6 1964 to May 21 1994.

In Malawi May 14 is Kamuzu Day, a public holiday set aside to remember and celebrate the life of Kamuzu.

Mr Msowoya, I notice that you are a regular on this forum.
You wonna start a war you cannot win? If people in the Central Region are living in “mediaeval era” then people in Nyika Republic must be living in the 25th Century, I suppose?
You want the Chewa to abandon their Nyau and adopt Vimbuza?
Also, your hatred for MCP is palpable even from afar. Tell you what? God could actually BLESS MCP.
But dont worry about it; we’re going FEDERAL in 2019 so you can concentrate on your semi-autonomous state up the mountains.

I know learned Malawians would not subscribe to nyau dancers’ beliefs that Banda ruled in hell.What this bloody moron did to Malawians of all stripes,would not imagine others would adore the criminal Frankenstein’s monster who had plunged our nation into a volcanic lake of a fierce demons.Malawi will never ever go one step forward because it is ruled by non-entities whose leadership is below human level.It is sad for our brothers from the Central that they are living in mediaeval era who can not distinguish between good and bad,so let the sleeping dog slumber.

Take note of this: MCP yomwe anthu akumwera akuidziwa ndiyosiyana ndi MCP yomwe anthu achigawo chapakati akuidziwa. So anytime you make whatever remarks be mindful of this fact. You could be cheating yourselves.

You can celebrate Kamuzu becoz anali Mbwiyanu, but know that people from the south have no reason to celebrate him at all – he made a lot of harm than good to them and will NEVER forget the troubles they had gone through during his time. You have the freedom to deny this BUT its a fact.

You are right Thubu. Indeed chitsiru chili ndi mwini. You see, every person regardless of whether he is cruel or kind, a tyrant or a democrat has some positives. History is awash with examples, Hitler, Stalin. Gaddafi, Mubaraki and many more. You can not talk of their countries’ development without the mention of them. What defines one as a tyrant or democrat is the ratio of evil against good. That Kamuzu was a tyrant, is a fact and I can bear witness to that. Here is a person who tried as much as possible to contain peoples’ minds. Someone who… Read more »
