MCP rules out dialogue on peace with Mutharika

Main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has ruled out holding dialogue with President Peter Mutharika to find last solution to the current political impasse.

Mkaka: let’s sort the legitimacy issue first

MCP secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka said there was no need to hold dialogue with Mutharika because, he said, his legitimacy as Head of State is fragile owning to presidential elections case.

“There is nothing to negotiate about. He is sitting on that position illegally and we are in court challenging his presidency. We cannot hold dialogue with an illegal president,” said Mkaka.

Mutharika on Saturday called on the opposition and human rights activists for a roundtable discussion to end the political impasse which he said is a scare to foreign investors.

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) member Richard Sembereka was cautious on his comment, saying although the president’s call for dialogue was welcome, it has come late.

“We are giving this the benefit of doubt but still we are waiting for him to initiate the dialogue,” said Sembereka.

Public Affairs Committee (PAC) chairperson Felix Chingota has said the quasi-religious body wants to meet all the warring parties during the second and final round of talks.

He said PAC wants to have Mutharika, MCP’s Lazarus Chakwera, UTM’s Saulos Chilima, Malawi Electoral Commission’s Jane Ansah and HRDC meet together for dialogue.

@Jenala this tribalistic language was the one that made late Chihana lose the best developmental deal that he got from Muluzi of Second Vice Presidency coz it gave u a bargaining power of Mzuzu Referal Hosp, Mzuni, Mzuzu Auction Floor, Mzuzu City Council status, & your voting out of AFORD numerical MP figures in Parliament made the Northerners be out of govt planning pool & you only recieve nyenyetswa from the govt of the day.

The point is that the president has opened up room for dialogue.Dialogue is the only way forward.Even after ruling which ever side dialogue is key without dialogue this nation is doomed.Therefore, it is my naive thinking may be to advise the opposition parties to take part.What will happen there depends on circumstances but dialogue is the only way forward.

The best scenerio would have been in the first place meet and pave the way forward.Malawians LET US KEEP PEACE

Wisdom should guide our leaders. You can’t burn down a country and expect to lead it later. MCP should learn from the past, the party has made some gains which I thought were supposed to be consolidated than going back to its dark past

Never trust this man. Remember how he fooled Malawians with the 50+ issue. Today PAC is unpopular because of this man.
