MCP says DPP fueling violence ahead of watershed Malawi 2019 polls

Main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has singled out the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) for the escalating political violence in the country.

Rev Munthali: DPP is promoting violence and anarchy

MCP spokesperson Maurice Munthali said the DPP-led government has completely failed to control political violence, saying the utterances of President Peter Mutharika is also fueling the violence.

“The word uttered by a leader can be interpreted rightly or wrongly so when the president says I will drop a tonne of bricks on you, people can misinterpret it and start the violence,” he said.

Of late, there has been escalating political violence.

The MCP has been rocked in political violence as a result of disputed party primary elections while the United Transformation Movement (UTM) had its vehicle burnt to ashes and that of its member MP Agnes Nyalonje by what the party says DPP cadets.

Offices of vocal civil society activist Timothy Mtambo were also petrol bombed last week by what Mtambo said DPP cadets but the DPP says this was just inside job to gain public sympathy.

Police spokesperson James Kadadzera said people should bring tangible information to the police for them to make tangible investigations.

Police are blamed for the escalating political violence as they do not act on violence perpetrated by the DPP cadets.

He is just MUNTHALI. What else can he say about the DPP? It’s a war between the north and the south. We all know this.

BTW, we expect the number of STAGED-UP political violence to continue as a strategy to discredit the DPP. But we all know that the DPP will come out of this victoriously.

Your language shows how much assistance you need for you to know that things do change over time and that God created us differently. The current MCP team is not what you are describing here. It is a different team blessed with capabilities to give Malawi a new look. Be assured, that if MCP wins elections in 2019, Malawi will never be a good classroom example for a failed state. We will change that. I am praying for you that you should witness that day.

MCP has forgotten what it did to our nation? For morethan 30 years,it ruled with iron-fist jailing and killing thousands of Malawians.Yes,DPP,is heading that way,but it hasn’t reached the level of the MCP by far.It is astonishing that some of the lackadaisically embecilic are still hanging on the murderous and the QUOTA SYSTEM founder MCP.If it were in other correct thinking countries,the tribalistic and killer MCP,could have been buried alive once and forall.In fact,the supporters of the MCP,are not even ashamed to be led by an Arab Mia and his wife.Arabs hate Africans and call them KAFFIRS or Infidels,therefore,Malawians,have lost… Read more »

Let’s learn to debate with a sober mind. From what you have written, it does not seem to be a person who wants to see change in this country. You are stuck in the past. MCP changed long time ago. The people you claim are killers are no longer there. The current team is fresh and is the only one capable of transforming this country. Get up and fight a good cause and not what you are doing. Your anger will kill you. It’s not good for you.

Those leaders who believe operating under a blanket of violence. It will always come back to haunt the perpetrators. One Day their houses and businesses will be raided, by the very criminals they created, years after retiring from politics. It’s this impaired vision that worries us of our politicians. They can’t think beyond their term of office.
