MCP youth leader Chimwendo endorses Mia as Chakwera running mate

The outspoken National Youth Director for the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Richard Chimwendo Banda says the youth in the country are okay with party vice President Sidik Mia as torchbearer Lazarus Chakwera’s running mate in next year’s watershed election.

Chimwendo spoke during a rally MCP organized at ZingangwaSecondary School ground in Blantyre city which was disrupted by heavy downpour  before Chakwera addressed  the crowds.

However, this was after some speakers including Chimwendo Banda had given their brief speeches.

In a live interview with Times TV presenter Brian Banda after Chakwera called off the rally, Chimwendo Banda said that the youth in the country are okay with Sidik Mia as Chakwera running mate in 2019.

Chimwendo Banda described Mia as a capable politician.

“Vice President Sidik Mia is workaholic and politically experienced. No one can match his abilities and he’s the best complement for Dr Chakwera in 2019 and MCP youth across the country are okay with him as Chakwera’s running mate,” said Chimwendo.

The MCP youth boss becomes the second MCP top official to publicly endorse Mia as Chakwera running mate in 2019.

The first to endorse Mia was the lakeshore regional chairperson Augustine Chidzanja who endorsed Mia during a rally the vice president addressed in Salima last week.

Despite these endorsements from these two top party officials, Malawians already view Sidik Mia as defacto Chakwera running mate in 2019. This is due to the precedence set by Chakwera himself in 2014 of picking a party deputy president as an automatic running mate

From which data is it concluded that Malawians are viewing Mia as a running mate? Is that true? However, Chakwera, please take time to read these passages in the Quran and figure out if the said running will protect Christians which is very doubtful: 2:191; 3:28; 3:85; 3:15; 8:12; 8:60; 9:30; 9:29; 47:4; and 48:29, just to least few passages. Most entities under the management of non Christians do not want Christians to work in their places because they look at them as being uncleaned, such that chances of ridicule are always there. That always happen because in Islam, the… Read more »

IMAGINE A SCENARIO WHERE CHAKWERA CHOOSES MIA FOR VICE PRESIDENCY AND THEY WIN IN THE GENERAL ELECTIONS

6 MONTHS INTO THEIR RULE, CHAKWERA SUDDENLY DROPS DEAD (CARIDIAC ARREST, AGGRESSIVE CANCER, HEART ATTACK). MIA THEN TAKES OVER AS PRESIDENT AND RULES MALAWI FOR 4.5 YEARS
Do not say you were not warned!!
