MCP storms Lhomwe belt: Chief Chikumbu pledges support

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) officials on Tuesday stormed the lhomwe belt, to assure people to court them work with the government.

Kunkuyu:  MCP making in roads in Lhomwe belt

MCP is the major stakeholder in the ruling Tonse alliance.

MCP director of campaign Moses Kunkuyu and his team met chiefs in Mulanje and Chiradzulu, assuring them that the Lazarus Chakwera administration would foster development in the areas which are deemed the stronghold of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

DPP was ousted from power during the June 23 presidential election.

“My message to the traditional leaders was simple; serve the government of the day and the government of the day is the Tonse alliance,” he said.

Chief Chikumbu of Mulanje pledged to support the government.

“We work with the government of the day. This time  it is Malawi Congress Party and we will support it,” she said.

Some political analysts say the MCP organised the meetings to thwart any possible revolt when the state arrests former president and leader of DPP Peter Mutharika on various crimes including the cementgate.

Talking to chiefs is nothing if you cannot deliver to Malawians expectations. All immediate past presidents did the same.

so Kunkuyu does not believe that people voted for MCP and he actually needs to travell to Lomwe belt to tell them. What cramp. Kunkuyu wants to be relevant and continue syphoning Mia that he is doing something. Wait for appointment as board chair of MACRA where Chakwera wants to post you.

How do you mean MCP is a major shareholder in the Tonse alliance. Mwayambapo? Just so you know the places you are courting will vote for UTM anyday before voting for MCP

Chief chikumbu seems to be forgetting how his predecessor was slapped in 1973 while attending mcp convention in mzuzu. And why is mcp still campaigning?

These chiefs have no political influence to change people’s party affiliations.

In Malawi, “serving the government of the day” is synonymous with kissing up to the current regime — a very dubious undertaking. I surely hope this whole crazy shit was funded by the party, and not by our taxes.

Malawi will never change. A little while ago tinadandaula kuti DPP imagwiritsa ntchito mafumu. Now it’s MCP. When will we ever learn! Why should Kunkuyu court chiefs. He is clearly a party representative not government representative. Only that in Malawi there is no difference between a party and government. Malawi will never change!

MCP shouldn’t be targeting the chiefs in this manner especially in the DPP stronghold otherwise the question arises: now that the MCP is in power is it using its incumbency to establish a one party rule? Let the chiefs quietly serve the government of the day. Why being in a campaign mode forever? This isn’t civic education it is actively surfacing political grudges more vendetta than the duty of Ministry of Civic Education. Moses Kunkuyu is being an overzealous party functionary.
