MCP hits back at DPP violence claims as ‘sheer nonsense and propaganda’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has hit back at governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) claim that the party has launched a new wave of terror, saying it is nonsense and callous political propaganda from the DPP.

MCP secretray general Mkaka: DPP secretary general Jeffrey was lying with a straight face

DPP Secretary General Griezeldar Jeffery on Sunday accused MCP leadership of criminal behaviour where people in Central Region are experiencing untold suffering and macabre attacks.

According to Jeffrey, recent attacks and terror activities are targeting DPP leaders in various villages and the party has received reports that ruling party supporters are living in fear and some have abandoned their homes, have fled their villages, and are currently in hiding.

But MCP secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka said the opposition apprehended some people who confess to have been sent by DPP to buy national identity cards (IDs) in the pretext that holders will benefit from Malawi Enterprises Development Fund Limited (Medf) loans.

He said the conduct by DPP is suspicious as the country prepares to hold fresh presidential elections on July 2 2020 and described DPP claims of violence as “sheer nonsense and useless propaganda.”

Said Mkaka: “Citizens and our people have apprehended youth that are collecting national ID from voters. Those apprehended have confessed to having been sent by DPP.”

He also pointed out that since Medf has distanced itself from the practice, DPP secretary general Jeffrey was “lying with a straight face.”

Said Mkaka: “We just want to tell the DPP that we are vigilant  and we will not allow them to play with the people’s right to choose a leader of their choice.”

President Peter Mutharika recently launched  a loan programme under Medf  to target underprivileged women and youths across the country and have been categorized into two main groups for those without capital and those who want to grow their enterprises.

Medf, which evolved from Mardef, was formed by an Act of Parliament in February 2014 as the only microfinance limited company owned by the government.

In my view there are two strange phenomenon happening right now in Malawi. Some people are collecting National IDs in order to disenfranchise people during the forth coming elections Secondly there are strong rumours of people going round sucking blood from innocent Malawians. Whether the two issues are linked or not is not clear. Unfortunately when the suspects are reported to Police they are released quickly. This raises suspicions. The best way is to deal with these problems decisively at source. Vigilante Groups should be formed countrywide. Anybody caught sucking blood or collecting National IDs should be dealt with mercilessly… Read more »

Join the discussion…The IDs being bought or taken away from the voters will be a disadvantage to either of the Parties. You are not sure to which party that vote would have gone. This type of rigging or disturbance must stop! People are tired of these dirty tricks!

MCP has been perpetrating violence in our country. It is a fact. The party has destroyed businesses and property. I used to think DPP is violent BUT I have changed my mind after seeing Chakwera ask MCP members to deal with Southerners. I have seen people being tortured and violently harassed.

With DPP at helm of power Malawi is in wrong and dangerous hands. Who bewitched Malawi to have it ruled by DPP?

DPP accusing MCP of violence is absolute nonsense. For almost 16 years under Mutharikas’s dynastic, nepotist, tribal rule first under old age pensioner Bingo and now under old age pensioner APM, Malawians have been subjected to misrule and suffered the greatest form of violence in the rigging of elections and the Mutharikas acquiring fortunes by corruptly awarding Amenyas with government contracts. Remember when drunkard Bingu,without any consultation changed the national flag? There can be no violence greater than what the two Mutharikas have subjected Malawians to.Rigging, corruptly acquiring vast wealth, appointing their tribesmen to head the army and police. Destroying… Read more »

The truth is that DPP are restless and in panic mode especially at the thought of winning no vote in the centre, MCP’s stronghold. What more with the strong MCP//UTM Alliance. Doing nothing would make them crazy and one of their devilish strategies, no doubt masterminded by no other than Dausi, is to try everything possible to reduce the opposition votes.and duping people.is one of the solutions Fortunately Malawians of goodwill have seen through the plot and are not amused. Hence the confrontation with the ID CARDS thieves. Incidentally why doesn’t Wa Jeffrey and ex MYP Dausi engage the police… Read more »
