MCP whip up electorate interest to register in voters roll: ‘To remove corrupt govt’

Members of Parliament (MPs) of the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) on Sunday took turns to bemoan the rising levels of corruption under the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led  government, saying the only way to remove it is through registering to vote and casting the ballot in next year’s Tripartite elections.

Chimwendo Banda: We are mobilising people to register in large numbers

The MPs were addressing a political rally as one way of sensitizing Malawians to go and register in their large numbers.

Dowa North East Parliamentarian Sam Kawale said the only way to get rid of DPP regime is by registering in large numbers and vote it out.

Kawale said it is sad to see the DPP leadership to be receiving   money fraudulently acquired from the Malawi Police Service (MPS) food rations deal.

He was referring to K145 million that was deposited into a DPP account for which President Peter Mutharika is the sole signatory.

Taking his turn Dowa South East parliamentarian Richard Chimwendo said it is sad that despite the budget passed Malawians are still not benefiting from it.

“Go and register this is only way to deal with these people, ” said Chimwendo.

Speaking at  Mtenje Primary School in Dowa South East Constituency, MCP Deputy Director of Economic Affairs, Sosten Gwengwe, accused the DPP-led administration of missing vital link in addressing the socioeconomic hardships that Malawians are facing.

Gwengwe cited the poor prices tobacco and other cash crops are fetching on the market, saying this is a daylight robbery to the farming community.

“Malawi is poorer now than ever before because tobacco farmers are not fetching enough from their sweat,” he said.

Gwengwe also bemoaned lack of youth policy direction.

Some of the speakers during the rally include former Deputy Minister of Local Government, Rachael Nazombwe Zulu and Lilongwe Deputy Mayor, Councillor Kaduya.

Well, the Kamuzu-led MCP had corrupt leaders; UDF that followed had corrupt leaders in their midst and so did Bingu-led DPP. It was under Joyce PP that cashgate took place unabated and now we have Peter-led DPP joining the trough like hungry pigs. It seems to me that those politicians who fell by the wayside in DPP are now singing for their supper at UTM. Unless these inherently corrupt and greedy leaders are put in check, Malawians will still suffer from the same fate as during MCP, UDF, DPP and PP. I would advise Chilima to think carefully on who… Read more »

mzanga dausi you are a joke. mcp has made so many statements in parliament in the past. we have even castigated them for calling someone prince of thieves. he has mentioned about escom gensets. have you been in malawi in the last four years? mcp has done what it could. some of you simply have some attitude problem. you only see people from the south as leaders. if anything i’d say the vp is in the wrong here. when did he know that the government in which he is still vp is corrupt?

I think this coming election is very key as far as the direction of this county is concerned. I know that the MCP leader has the highest level of integrity amongst all the candidates… However, I am in a dilemma between voting for MCP or UTM due to the following verifiable facts: 1) Abusa was leading the richest congregation within the Assemblies of God(AG) family 2) Abusa started fund raising for Church building for over 10 years and although the congregation was faithful in giving, Abusa never managed to build The Lord’s house ( although one well wisher from America… Read more »

I wish you guys had done the same in Kasungu, Salima and Dedza. Anyway please continue with the strategy you have taken. People must be told what misery DPP has brought and the only solution is to kick them out through the ballot which can only be achieved by registered supporters large numbers voting for MCP in May 2019.
