Chakwera and Mia hopeful MCP gaining ground in South: ‘Malawians have a simple choice in 2019 to reject scandalous govt’

Thousands of opposition Malawi Congress Party  (MCP) supporters on Saturday converged at Balaka Primary School grounds where its president Rev Dr Lazarus Chakwera was addressing a rally alongside seasoned politicians who included Sidik Mia, Ken Kandodo , Wakuda Kamanga, Halima Saudi, and scores of MCP Members of Parliament.

Speaking during the rally, Chakwera started by welcoming scores of people who had joined the party  in the South and Eastern Region.

He said the large crowds in the south is a vote for “hope” and that MCP is making inroads in the south.

Chakwera beamoned high  corruption levels in the country,  saying DPP is the ruling a “scandalous government.”

He said: “The corruption levels among DPP  top officials have reached a critical stage.”

MCP President said  corruption in DPP government is now in a state of “national crisis.”

“We demand to see justice in all the identified ‘gates’, abuses of government offices and see that the Constitution is adhered to with no one being above the law.

“Malawians lets demand not to be and remain the poorest of all nations, fellow Malawians we need to draw a line and say ‘Enough is Enough’,” said Chakwera.

Speaking earlier , Mia accused the DPP led government for the poor policies governing the nation.

Mia gave an example of poor prices of different crops such as soya beans , maize, cotton, and other crops .

“Voters are seeking for a credible alternative in leadership and that’s  Chakwera,” said Mia.

“MCP is the alternative to the politics of despair and division,” he added in an interview with Nyasa Times.

Mia said: “What happens next is difficult to predict, but one thing is certain. The people have declared their willingness to begin constructing a new Malawi and MCP is today the name of this popular desire for a new beginning.”

During the rally MCP MCP Vice President, Richard Msowoya , who is also Speaker of Parliament. did not attend the rally.

Mr. Msowoya you have written paragraphs and paragraphs just to reply to a few wise statements in which I tried to school your medulla that Mia is not an Arab. You claim to know the history of Malawi yet you fail to find the origin of our own citizens in the Lower shire. I once asked you to atleast spare one week and come to your beloved country to see things on the ground. If you did, you would find the truth that people like Mia, Issa the MP, Halima Daudi are not Arabs but pure Malawians. I would like… Read more »

Satana,Iam not sure whether you are a stable and an upright person,because what you have written on me is purely bunkum and personal vendetta from a deranged tribalist without border.I still vehemently accentuate that Mia being an Arab Muslim,can not rule us in our own continent and our birth-land beloved mother Malawi,that will never happen in our life-time,if you are on the line of receiving PETRO-DOLLAR to mortgate our beloved mother Malawi,you are a lost lamb.We chased the British colonisers only to be colonised by Arab Muslims? Satana,you think that an Arab Muslim Mia is more important than Richard Msowoya… Read more »

From which tribe is Mia from in Malawi?

It is well known to every keen political follower that MCP cannot make it into government even if they use the most powerful juju in the southern part of Africa. That aside I don’t ascribe to Msowoya reasons that MCP should not be allowed to rule Malawi because of Mia being a muslim. Let me pump sense in Msowoya’s medulla oblongata that our constitution does not bar any religion vying for any political post. Msowoya does not know anything about the history of Africa let alone southern part of it otherwise he could not make such a silly mistake that… Read more »
