MCP’s Mkaka describes President Mutharika as DPP Cadet

Main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) spokesperson Eisenhower Mkaka has said President Peter Mutharika is reducing himself to a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Cadet for commenting on issues without facts.

Mkaka and MCP gurus: Fault Mutharika for poking his nose in MCP matters

Mkaka said this on Wednesday after Mutharika repeated his allegation this week that the MCP president Lazarus Chakwera has sold the party to Muhammed Sidik Mia at K200 million.

“The President is reducing himself and his office to a status of a DPP Cadet who argues without facts,” said Mkaka.

He said the K200 million is not even the value of the party headquarters in Lilongwe, describing Mutharika’s allegations as laughable.

On calls by Mutharika for the party to respect the MCP vice president Richard Msowoya following the lebwedelebwede remark  by Mia which is interpreted as insulting to the party veep, Mkaka said Mutharika was just buying political sympathy from the north.

“He is just playing divide and rule politics. Honourable Mia was not attacking Right Honourable Msowoya, what Honourable Mia was saying is that he would work very hard so that he gets a position during the convention,” said Mkaka.

Chancellor College political analyst Ernest Thindwa feared the political bickering between the ruling DPP and the opposition in the run up to the elections in 2019 would derail development.

“The focus is now on political bickering, the President is busy hitting back at opposition, this is retrogressive because our politicians are now busy on political bickering rather than focusing on development issues,” said Thindwa.

DPP spokesperson Francis Kasaila has defended the political outbursts by Mutharika.

He said the DPP is using the same political propaganda strategies which ushered the party into government in the two elections.

Examining the contradictory statements made by APM in the north, it is obvious the aim is damage control..typical of campaign language fooling the citizens there. Have the citizens forgotten of the capsized boat and the failure by the president to construct a road for the Rumphi citizens to use instead of travelling by the lake. He even went overboard to dictate that some senior MPs will go unopposed. This man claims to have lived in the USA for 40yrs. How true is that? He is a crook.


MCP to win 2019 elections come rain or sunshine


What Mkaka is saying is a true reflection of how our state president is behaving. He is a typical party cadre. DPP n Peter should not cheat themselves that the North will give them votes no matter how much they want to smear MCP n Mia. The North has already decided which party to vote for. The president is a disgrace to the nation. Why comment on everything? That’s a juvenile approach to self destruction. He should not behave like someone with stunted thinking.


Just wait for 2019 – the ballot box will judge.


Mkaka is a dying horse , self imposed spokesperson, and an empty bucket that makes a lot of noise

Shame a president to become a cadet very shame. He is busy talking against MCP the only hope for Malawians. He can not impress Malawians any more the way he failed to run ministries during Bingu is what is failing him today. 2019 is a year of history in Malawi where people of Malawi will witness the mighty party taking back its govt into glory again where the Ngwazi left it taking the country out from bondage after 25 years of disaster under the democratic dispensation govt of udf,dpp and pp.
