MCP strategises to displace UDF, PP & DPP in Eastern Region

The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) of Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera is to launch an offensive local campaign aimed at displacing the United Democratic Front (UDF), Peoples’ Party and Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in the Eastern Region.

Party of the Mangochi indaba delegates

A strategic action group involving all MCP political players in the Eastern Region met over the weekend in Mangochi Boma where they conducted their meeting. The indaba drew party office-bearers—District Chairmen, Chair-ladies and youth chairs from all the 7 political districts in the eastern region namely Zomba, Chingale, Ntaja, Machinga, Balaka, Namwera and Mangochi.

Our source who attended the meeting said the group discussed the current political situation in the region in which the delegates from the districts expressed concerns at the lack of party visibility in the region and suggested grassroots engagement and recruitment through political rallies and mobility facilities for local party leadership.

The source further narrated that the action group which has been tasked with making sure that they religiously champion this incursion will find out what the party can do in the Eastern region to establish a romance with the people there.

The apparent lack of visibility follows the death of Alhaj Muhammad Sidik Mia, the Southern Region party supremo.

Speaking in an interview, Deputy Secretary General Gerald Kazembe who is Mangochi -Monkey-Bay, while acknowledging that the said meeting took place played down the assertions that the party has given a green light to launch an offensive operation in the region.

“It was one of those routine meetings where we call office-bearers to discuss party issues. Every party’s wish is to conquer new frontiers and the growth of any political outfit is measured when you start enjoying support in areas where the same lacked and there are indicators to check if progress is being made and if there is need to change tact,” said Kazembe.

“It is normal but whosoever fed you with the so called incursion or offensive operation was just exaggerating,” said Kazembe.

The meeting was attended by the MCP big-wigs in the region namely Gerald Kazembe, the Regional Chairperson Hon. Kawalazira, Hon Munde, Hon Ngalande MP, Hon Lwanda, Hon. Kaisi, Hon. Hassan, Hon Sheik Fahad, Hon Sheik Abbas, Hon Khan, Hon Nyengo, Hon Matumula, Hon Chanthunya, Hon Ntandama, and Hon Gertrude Khan.

MCP will never take a foothold in the Northern Region, Eastern Region and the Southern Regions of Malawi, these meetings are only aimed at fooling your leadership so that you can sleep in lodges and eat allowances. Anthu akumpoto momwe tinazuzikila ndikusalidwa ndi chipani cha MCP kuno kulibe malo anu. Ku Eastern Region and South will forever not give vote to MCP, olo mutawathila Doom Mkamwa….

Gerald Kazembe has what it takes to replace and even grow the Mia factor in the Eastern Region. Eastern region is key to MCP 2025 agenda but don’t forget the Mangochi – Makanjira 102 I’m road. It’s a key to unlocking votes.

These are just wishes which amount to zero.There have been by elections in these areas and we have achieved nothing. Malawians know very well the motives of politicians who just want to steal the show yet their intentions are beyond voters but money money.

Your analysis will just force UDF and DPP to commit political suicide if they despise MCPs growing popularity in the eastern region. You need as well to look at the number of votes the MCP candidates got in the elections you pointed out. And remember they got those unprecedented votes when they had just spent a few months in government. I fear what might happen by the end of 5 years. Let DPP sleep not if they don’t want to lose this region to MCP or UTM

What is Honourable?? Ife a Malawi bwanji kuzikuza chonchi????? Bad spirit. That’s why when we elect leaders they turn into demigods cos when you think that one is Honourable simply because he or she is a chairperson of a polical party in a certain area. That is really bad.

I don’t see any wrong. The party has to be strengthened in areas where it was weak. Who displaced who? MCP was displaced in the EAstern Region in 1992 leaving it confined to the central region. UDF was given a chance to lead Malawi to glory but miserably failed. It was all theft and destruction. DPP failed. I would not say that PP failed. They took advantage of the death of Bingu. It was a transitional government.
