MCP united, says Chakwera: Mia, Msowoya, Kaliwo ‘pulling in one direction’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera has said his party is now a united and organised, saying they are committed to serve the people of Malawi and liberate them from inept leadership of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Chakwera said this at a rally in Mzuzu and Chitipa on Saturday and Sunday.

He has been on political tour of Northern Region flanked by party vice president, Richard Msowoya, Secretary General Gustave Kaliwo and the party’s new catch Sidik Mia.
“Some of the people you see me with today are those that have said much evil about me, they have done all sorts of things against me, but I have chosen to humble myself and forgive them just like God did with me. I was forgiven unconditionally and I have done likewise,” Chakwera said.

Chakwera said if MCP gets into government in 2019 his administration will come with a policy of partnership between State and religious groups to promote quality education and end controversial quota system of selecting students to public universities.

And Speaking on Sunday in Chitipa at a political rally, Chakwera accused President Mutharika of dragging traditional leaders into politics and diving the people of the country.

“Do not uses chiefs wrongly so that they operate against the wishes of their subjects,” said Chakwera, who is also leader of opposition.

“We want to see chief liberated. Gone are the days when a chief would be penalised for talking to a leader in the opposition,” he said.

Meanwhile, some notable politicians including Catherine Gotani Hara, Ken Zikhale Ng’oma, Khumbo Chirwa, Bannet Mwamlima and Mzuzu City Mayor William Mkandawire were officially welcomed into the MCP during Chakwera’s rally.

Mmmmm Lazaro, Quota system, a campaign tool to wow the Northerners. Ife tingoyana 2019 is just close. Pulling in one direction is just cosmetic, but behind they are pulling in different directions.

Some people are freely defecting to MCP while DPP is flashing out cash in order to have members of other parties come to their fold. Which is cleaner? Kicks of a dying horse – we are indeed in the last days of the ruling party, it’s a matter of time.
