MCP’s Msungama ropes in Lucius Banda to boost campaign

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) candidate Ulemu Msungama who has successfully challenged the results of the parliamentary election in which Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) declared Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate Bentley Namasasu winner by 98 votes  in 2014, over the weekend engaged the famous Malawi’s music icon-cum politician , ‘Soldier’ Luscious Banda to boost his campaign for October 17 by-election.

Banda, who of late has been performing in MCP rallies, entertained starved people from the middle morning hours till late in the evening.

The former UDF parliamentary leader said he is always happy whenever associating himself with the MCP.

“It is this party which transformed Malawi not these in power today,” he said

In his speech, Msungama commended people of the constituency for the support being rendered.

“Since we started our road show campaign, we have been seeing a lot of people coming out to support us, I don’t take this for grunted,” said Msungama.

MEC called for a by-election in the constituency after the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal ordered a re-run following the nullification of the May 20 2014 Tripartite Elections that declared DPP’s Bentley Namasasu winner. The elections were contested in court by Msungama who argued there were irregularities in the elections.

Lucious is talking about real development with minimal financial spillage through corruption by those in power as is the case today. . The development we see today is too expensive for a poor Malawi yet lacks quality cos of too much financial haemorage/spillage in the form of corruption. . Yes there was brutality under MCP thru Young Pioneers, and there was brutality under UDF thru Young Democrats, and there is also brutality under DPP thru their cadets – Thus brutality in all these regimes is a constant but real and lasting development was done during the MCP. Even if those… Read more »

Lucio, please take out God in creation of political parties, should we also say your DPP is the worst of all. He sang about bad things which were there then but Kamuzu was developing the lives of Malawians. Just look at where your retired mapwiya is sleeping it is the works of Kamuzu, the road you are using it is Kamuzu, the hospitals it is Kamuzu, even the towers which are carrying the network you are using now were erected during Kamuzu time through MTL. We Malawians thought that your president will do like what his brother(MHSRP) of first five… Read more »

It is claiming too much to enshrine that MCP as a party was brutal. There are a number of factors that need to be considered before making this claim. First, I believe that it was not the philosophy of the party that to be brutal. I believe it were some individual but MCP as an entity wasnt. Second, consider the time factor between when MCP was ruling as a single party and this multiparty democratic era. Third, consider the evolution which has notable taken place in the current membership of the party. Fourth, consider also the ideologies and philosophy of… Read more »

Lucious is a dunderhead. No wonder he was chased out of parliament for using a fake MSCE certificate. Ku Bilira MCC sikunamuthandize.

Which party has not killed ?? Remember Epiphania Bonjesi, Fanikiso Phiri, Matafale, Kwacha ghambi, Robert chasowa, Raphael Tenthani, Bishop Zuza and many more??
Every political party here has ex MCP members.
It is true Lucius Banda talked bad about MCP.

Chiswa B, it’s you who is drunk. You can’t read the evil happening here. Late Tenthani had the potential to pump real sense into elite Malawians and that’s why he was taken out of the equation. Same happened to late Dzanjalimodzi. Wake up and see the the systematic elimination of opponents by DPP. Remember how Kabwila was saved by the skin of her teeth??
