MCP vague on Mutharika impeachment calls

Main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is vague on whether its members of parliament would back the impeachment proceedings of President Peter Mutharika.

Rev Munthali: MCP will support impeachment of the President if it is what Malawians want

Civil society organisations under the banner Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) are lobbying members of parliament to impeach Mutharika on charges of arrogance, impunity, intolerance, tribalism, regionalism, nepotism, favouritism and incompetence.

MCP publicity secretary Reverend Maurice Munthali said the party would join the impeachment proceedings if Malawians are for it.

“The CSOs are exercising their right to call for the impeachment of the president, they are free to do so. We would align ourselves with Malawians if they want the president to be impeached,” he said.

He said the high level corruption is stemming development in the country.

“In Malawi, things are not working , things are not ticking. I wish the president just resigned,” he said.

Political scientist Ernest Thindwa said he doubts if the impeachment can succeed on numbers because Mutharika’s party is in majority in the 193 strong House.

Thindwa said it is a fruitless effort by the CSO to have Mutharika impeached.

The only impeachment Malawians are waiting for is of that guy called Chilima who is embarrassingly and shamelessly continuing receiving salary from the account number one of government for doing no job. If you are not doing any job and you not corrupt, you can’t take a salary for which you know you haven’t worked for. Only corrupt people can take that salary which they have not worked for and feel nothing is wrong with that. 2019 May please come fast, Malawians are ready to shame the devil.

Malawians supporting a president because of looks. Chilima looks older than his age of 45. How will he look at 80?

Impeachment process on average takes more than 12 months. So as others have said it might be a waste of time and energy!! MCP needs to vigorously use the blunders APM and his DPP have made during campaign. Please inform the populace about the K4.5 billion MSB, K1.6 billion Chikangawa, ADMARC maize, Nandolo and waste, Escom scandals, Water Boards, K145 million APM’s, 5 Karim vehicles, etc etc!! APM has to be taken to task afterwards after elections……………….!! Its only when you talk too much on all the blunders that people may understand the importance!! Chonde MCP, anthu akuyang’ana inu and… Read more »

The CSO + MCP + whoever have to first divide the DPP if the impeachment should have any 10% chance of going through. Bingu’s impeachment had a chance because UDF was divided at that time. Better invest your money else where than wasting it to lobby MCP & UTM MPs to be on your side. Mukufuna mukanchotsa alowe ndani? AChakwera aimbirenso wina mmanja… ..hahahaha…. ..musandisekese.

Don’t waste time on this , we have only 6 months to go leave it to us voters we will fight our battle with no involvement of lawyers and judges. He has a lot of issues already some people will blame u of killing him forgetting that he has too much pressure from Mk145m & the five cars.

KKKKKKK i sometimes laugh at these CSO’s and MCP especially on the issues of nepotism and tribalism. Look this has been going on for a long time now, please change the tune. I remember sometime if it’s not few months back, government came up with statistics in defending itself that its not nepotistic. And it asked these groupings to come up with it’s on, no one from the MCP and CSO’s benches came up with anything. Don’t you get tired that the same strategies that you follow towards election never worked for you? Tamachitani manyazi sometimes, zinthu zomwe mukuti sizikuchitika… Read more »

No need to waste time one someone who impeached himself long ago. Besides, experience has shown that it’s the lawyers who are to benefit most through protracted legal battles to follow.
