MCP’s Chimwendo gets social media jabs, justifies remarks

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) director of youth Richard Chimwendo  Banda has been sharply criticized for his remarks at a rally in Mponela, Dowa on Saturday which some people say were inciting to be protest violently should the election case verdict not go in favour of the party.

Chimwendo Banda: Says he preached peace

Chimwendo Banda could be heard in a clip in circulation on social media platforms telling party officials to ferry people to the Constitutional Court on the day of the verdict in the landmar presidential elections nullification petition case.

He said the party expects nothing but victory of the case.

Tsiku logamula dziko lonse tikakumana ku Lilongwe. I we  wa nyuzi lemba, iwe wapolisi konzeka, ukawauze akazi ako kuti zili uku n’zoopsya [on judgement say, we will all meet in  Lilongwe. The medua must write about this! Police officers, get ready and tell your wives tjat it’s getting dangerous.]

Chimwendo Banda said the MCP does not recognize President Peter Mutharika as head of state, saying he ascended to the position fraudulently.

“This is why our leader Dr. Lazarus Chakwera is not attending parliament because he does not recognize Mutharika as the head of state,” said Chimwendo Banda.

Chimwendo Banda has later clarified on his Facebook wall, saying his remarks have been taken out of context because he did not incite people to rise up against the government should the court verdict not go in favour of the MCP.

He clarified that he was asking police officers to tell their wives that “there will be a lot of work on the day, not that it will be dangeroua for them.”

Chimwendo Banda said he has persuaded the party youth to desist from running battles with police and called for peace.

If judges dare make a mistake on their verdict surely they should leave Malawi otherwise violence will likely escalate and APM will face very big problems and central region will be a no go zone for him. Malawians wake up people from the north foresee these malpractices that Makawi should go Fedralism but I wonder who corrupted your minds that federation is bad? South Africa is using that so it is Kenya, this system helps in equal share of the national cake. Failure to come up with this system of government surely one day people of Malawi shall be refugees… Read more »

I call chimwendo a good guy.Expressionally he has conveyed his plan to everybody of what he can do.Talk reality do you think people will remain chete akazati peter anawinadi,I personally dont think so.Its difficult to control an angry Man like chimwendo and Dausi and so called cadets who have expressionary made headlines to cause troubles to a humble and beloved Malawi.There is alot of speculation out there and either individuals from parties like DPP,MCP and UTM plans to ferry their supportes there.Possibility of Clashing 100%.What is at stake now is the Impact of Judgement upon Malawian.Either many will get disappointed… Read more »

Anyhow, the good thing is that it’s on record and should violence occur on that day the police know exactly who to arrest.

This is the sort of rhetoric we dont want in our country Sir! you are lying! its obvious! your tone! your language! your demeanour says it all! We don’t care if Chakwera does not recognise Mutharika! That does not mean everybody does not recognise Mutharika as our president. You want chaos! you want confusion it’s written all over your face!You need to educate yourself! when a court has gone through a trial using evidence based decision making you as a civilised person, and I am not sure how civilised you are Mr Chimwendo Banda!!! you are supposed to accept the… Read more »
