Malawi Congress Party (MCP) top brass  on Sunday conducted political rally in Dowa  preaching peace preparing its supporters for any outcome of the Constitutional Court in presidential election nullification case.

Despite heavy downpours the Nkukula Primary School ground at Lumbadzi trading centre, hundreds of MCP loyalists turned up  for the rally.

In his address,  MCP director of youth Richard Chimwendo Banda said the party  encourages peace and wants its supporters to be mindful of that.

“MCP believes in peace and we are urging our youths to maintain that even after court verdict,” said Chimwendo Banda.

Chimwendo Banda was recently criticized  for his remarks at a rally in Mponela, Dowa which some people said were inciting youths to protest violently should the election case verdict not go in favour of the party.

However, the legislator  told journalists on Sunday that there was nothing wrong in what he said,  saying some people misquoted  him.

He said everyone has a right to attend any public court hearing.

“Some misguided individuals misquoted me, I never invited violence, ” he denied.

Chimwendo Banda said MCP  will defeat all deceptive machinations of darkness peacefully.

Also speaking during the rally was , Dowa South East parliamentarian, Halima Daudi said the meetings was very important in the area because it was aimed at preparing the youths to remain law abiding.

On his part, Ken Kandodo who is Deputy Director of strategic planning,  said the party has planned for more political rallies aimed at reaching out to the public.

He said the idea behind the rallies is to ensure peace and calm.

And as judges are preparing their ruling, several groups have been impressing on stakeholders to prepare their supporters for any outcome. They include the Malawi Law Society (MLS), the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR), National Initiative for Civic Education (Nice) Trust, Britain and South Africa-based Malawian prophet Shepherd Bushiri, who heads the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG).

AS LONG AS THE FIVE JUDGES DO NOT GET COMPROMISED BEHIND THE SCENES AS JANE ANSAH AND HER MEC COMMISSIONERS DID, THERE WILL BE AUTOMATIC PEACE. ALL THAT IS REQUIRED FROM THE FIVE JUDGES IS TO REMAIN AND BE SEEN TO BE PROFESSIONAL AND COME UP WITH A FAIR AND OBJECTIVE JUDGEMENT. IN THE FIRST PLACE THIS CASE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN THERE IF JANE ANSAH AND TEAM DID A PROFESSIONAL AND NON PARTISAN JOB, IF MEC AND DPP WERE SEPARATED BOTH IN PUBLIC AND BEHIND THE SCENES. WHO DOES NOT WANT TO RULE THIS COUNTRY? ASK BAKILI MULUZI, HOW… Read more »

In 1959 there was no UDF, DPP, PP, etc. Tomorrow there will be Fabulous Party, Nepotism Party, etc. I guess i will be somewhere reading obituaries of my fellow VVIPs.

Chakwere should state publicly that he will accept the Court’s judgement if it goes against him, and NOT appeal to the Supreme Court. That would be a big help in avoiding violence, and maintaining peace and calm.

Oh yes, and “preparing the youths to remain law abiding”.

Ur illegitimate so called hungry leader must be strong when the verdict don’t work against his will.
This is Malawi not Mhlakwo Republic
Malawi belongs to all who live in it not only Mapuyaz.
If ell so terrible to it man who really will go down to refix his campaign for fresh elections
We need a caring leader without nepotism leadership among innocent people who are blindly robbed of their birthical rights
Who is this man Mthalika??

This article is about MCP preparing their supporters for peace, that is why I mentioned only Chakwera as being helpful if he announces that he will not appeal. Let me clarify now that ALL four appellants and respondents to the elections case should say that they will not appeal; those are Chakwera, Chilima, Mutharika (the Second), and MEC
