The party suspended Msowoya and Kaliwo who stayed away from the meeting despite being invited to attend.

The MCP NEC has also suspended former spokeswoman Jessie Kabwila, director of foreign affairs Tony Kandiero and Second Deputy Secretary General Chatonda Kaunda who are party of the “troublemakers” group.

The meeting at the MCP headquarters in Lilongwe was called by party president Lazarus Chakwera to resolve internal wrangles.

Sources at NEC indicate that the party has also appointed Eisenhower Mkaka as Secretary General to replace Kaliwo and Reverend Maurice Munthali as acting Deputy Publicity Secretary.

MCP deputy publicity secretary Ezekiel Ching’oma said the party will address a news conference once the resolutions were compiled.

He said under Article 14 of the MCP constitution, NEC has powers to suspend or dismiss a member is such members has committed a serious and persistent breach under the constitution.

He said the procedure for such action shall conform to the rules of natural justice that the accused be heard.

The party said all officials were invited to NEC meeting.

MCP has also filled  the post of Administrative Secretary that late Portipher Chidaya  left. The new administrative secretary is a Mr Sulamoyo.

The party security intercepted a drone which flew over the building before it was seen and traced to a vehicle packed beyond the compound.

The drone allegedly belonged to Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) and reportedly fell when wireless contact broke.

This is what JZU calls childish leadership. In politics we strive to bring votes into the party not getting rid of the votes. Instead of making a plus Chakwera is doing a minus. This is where DPP can be happy now. Don’t blame DPP for your squabbles. Blame Mia and Chakwera. Remember the lebwedelebwede insult? And Mia said it without Chakwera reprimanding him. Lero mukuti DPP ikusokoneza MCP. Childish leadership indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fitta Chipeta

MCP is now going to govern this country for another 31 so confussionists must be eliminated . Zimatinyansa kumamva nthawi zonse maphokoso. Ngati afuna apange kapena kulowa zipani zinazo azidzatsutsa.


Kodi ngati MCP yalakwitsa kuchotsa a Gustav ndi A Jessie, a DPP osamangosangalala bwanji.


DPP yalira kuti Kotooooooo aganyu achotsedwa ku MCP


Asatinamize awa, the illegally staged meeting was conducted for Chakwera to implement his Lilongwelisation of MCP. Does it make sense to fire people when the convention is just around the corner?
Kaliwo, please go to court and get the injunction. MCP must be treated differently from the way some people treat their construction work at maula area. Akufuna musapite ku Convention ndi cholinga choti atswitswiri azikanona kumeneko.
Chonde abale a kongilesi musawasiye choncho a Chakwera ndi anzao, angayambe kudzolowera.


Tambala wakuda – MCP yagwira nseu! Destroying itself, of course, after eating Mia’s money.


Iwe Satana. Which God are you taliking about? Do you think God can side with your party? You are cheating yourself as you have always been doing.


That is good development. Let the party destroy itself so that tomorrow it should not point fingers at somebody. This is the invisible hand of God doing the magic. Kuchisokoneza chipani wosadziwa kuti chikupanga ma blunder akuluakulu. JZU said the truth that there is childish leadership in the party nowadays.


Kabwira was cheated and left alone by Njovuyalema kupusa she is alone in the bush now

masa masina

I think its time the Mr Msowoya and a Mr Kaliwo should join DPP, their pay master. Royalty and discipline are important in nay organization.


What if Msowoya join DPP?what do you think?northeners will never follow someone like dogs,who is Richard that we fear as MCP?forget about him and let’s move forward.
