MCP plans Kamuzu Day celebrations in style

The opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has organised on May 14 a dinner and live band performance at Capital Hotel in the Capital City Lilongwe to honour the founding father of the nation Ngwazi Dr Hastings Kamuzu Banda who ruled Malawi for 31 years.

Speaking during a news conference in Lilongwe, MCP spokesperson Jessie Kabwira said the party president and leader of opposition Dr Lazarus Chakwera will be the guest of Honour.

Kabwira said the organizing committee has also invited Skeffa Chimoto to come perform at the function.

She said Malawians should not forget what the country’s founding president Hastings Kamuzu Banda did for the nation in terms development and improvement of living standards.

“There are a lot of achievements which Malawians ought to remember about Kamuzu like roads, hospitals, universities and airports among others,” she said. She said the party plans to showcase some of the achievements by Kamuzu during his 30-year reign over Malawi as a reminder to the people.

Deputy MCP campaign director Joseph Njobvuyalema said: “Kamuzu Banda did best for this country but the regimes after him have not helped this country.”

Kamuzu ruled Malawi from 1964 to 1994 and his birthday on May 14 is commemorated each year in remembrance of him.

He died in November 1997.

MCP should move on from Kamuzu, he killed, imprisoned and exiled a lot of innocent people. The South and North will never accept this in this present age. Better for MCP to be progressive if they want to be relevant to Malawi

Believe me MCP is very far in their thinking strategy than any other party in Malawi seconded by a Joyce Banda’s PP internationally. The rest of the parties think Malawi can stand alone without Britain. Kamuzu built all these ideas, that’s why John Tembo laughed at Bingu when he chased away a British diplomat.

What a Party? You cant even mention the real founder of the party , Orton Chirwa during your ceremonies or narrate the history of the party as your friends in ANC, FRELIMO or SWAPO do. Yet you claim to be reformed. You even killed him instead of praising him for what he did to form the party. A party that does not seek forgiveness from thousands of Malawians whose relatives were killed, vanished or fed to crocodiles. Your killing spree were endless; Orton Chirwa, Douglas Mhone, Dunduzu Chisiza, Atate Mpakati, Chief Timbiri, Chuhari Chirwa, Bridger Katenga Kaunda, TDT Banda, Khonde… Read more »
