MCP independents gang up to ‘teach party a lesson’

A group of disgruntled Malawi Congress Party (MCP) aspirants have ganged up to help each other during campaign in order to force party candidates fail during ithe May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections.

Kazombo: MCP has been imposing candidates

Spokesperson for the grouping, Madalitso Kazombo, Kasungu east MP and central region director of campaign for the MCP said the grouping will campaign against the party aspiring candidates where the cabdidates were imposed.

“The party has been unfairly imposing candidates. Some of us won the party primary elections but some party officials favoured some candidates who did not win,” said Kazombo.

He said the grouping would severely punish the party in such constituencies but would all support the candidature of Lazarus Chakwera for presidency.

The MCP primary polls have been divisive and saw long time members of parliament who include Joseph Njobvuyalema, Makala Ngozo and Zaipa lose their parliamentary seats whilst favoured candidates like Kazombo and Nancy Tembo lose the polls dubiously.

Kazombo said the grouping would sweep all the parliamentary seats against the MCP favoured candidates to “teach the party a lesson.”

Democracy entails accepting defeat cause you cannot all be winners. When these disgruntled members decided to contest in primaries, they were aware that only two outcomes were attainable. You either win or lose. Why contest in the first place if you are afraid of losing? Even if the primaries were retaken I doubt if any of them would emerge victorious. In all the areas they are disputing the results, the declared winners are popular. The disgruntled decided to run on MCP ticket because they know they stand a better chance winning than standing as independent otherwise they would have opted… Read more »

These disgruntled failures are wasting time. They felt they owed the party and the voters. And they got it completely wrong. They failed to convince voters at primaries how will they do it at general elections? IPOR said it is MCP that can solve Malawi’s problems, so if Malawians want their problems to be solved then MCP is the answer. The report is a good prophecy dont ignore it embrace it. UTM is a temporary excitement that fade away with time. It resembles its origin, DPP, its membership is mostly from DPP. You can’t separate the actors in UTM drama… Read more »

For oChakwera, with due respect to him, apparently it is too late for him to learn any political lesson now. He’s probably already poised for defeat next year, given that the new kid on the block, Chilima, may scrape a few votes away from MCP. He has shown, repeatedly and even defiantly, the worst political naivete perhaps second only to Joisi Banda’s. And, he’s now undoubtedly in the pocket of Mia; after losing support of some of the giants (Njobvuyalema and co.) of the MCP and even openly supporting minions. When you have the likes of the Kazombos – with… Read more »

Dear Disgruntleds. Can you please tell us what happens after you have swept all seats in constituencies where you allege candidates were imposed? I hole you will not punish the people in the process by stupidly siding with thieving and corrupt DPP in Parliament. Mark my word that will be the end of you.

That stupidity of the highest order, you think you are punishing the party but in reality both the party and yourself will be punished come next year. Kodi a Kazumbo siinu pa zodiak amati nose ndinu akubanja kwa Kamuzu koma mukukanganirana u MP, zatani kubanjako osakhala pansi ndiuika munthu mmodzi, mark my words both of you will split votes kumeneko ngati kuli wa UTM or DPP wolimba atenga mpando. Dyera likachuluka odutsa amatola chikwama.MCP ya 2014 was much stronger than the 2019 one. Nawo ochakwera utsogoleri wavuta zedi, ndale tchalitchi ndithu you are fooled by Mia, he is not a… Read more »
