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.
