Mia: My partner with Chakwera on MCP presidential ticket is an“easy entrance” to State House

Chakwera , who is also leader of opposition in Parliament, declared at a rally in Monkey Bay, Mangochi on Sunday that Mia will be his running mate.

Mia, a former Cabinet minister  who announced his retirement from active politics and joined MCP in July 2017, said he desire was to help Chakwera win the 2019 general elections.

“It’s great news for me to be entrusted with this huge responsibility to partner Honourable Chakwera. There is no better news to make me delighted than this,” said Mia.

The declaration by Chakwera and ther rally was beamed live on television by Times TV.

In an interview with Brian Banda on Times TV immediately after Chakwera’s declaration, Mia assured Chakwera that “I will put all my energy to ensure that come May 21 2019, the MCP gets into government and Honourable Chakwera goes to the State House,” saying Malawians were tired of the current leadership.

The rally started with a whistle-stop tour that saw the MCP leader stopping at Malembo and Cape Maclear where he also introduced MCP aspiring legislators for Mangochi West Beatrice Lwanda Ngaunje and Gerald Kazembe for Mangochi Monkey Bay.

My humble request to Mia is that he should start doning MCP cloth now that he the running mate. I don’t know what stops him from putting on the MCP regalia. By putting the party regalia he will prove to the follower that he is one with them. He should not appear as a headmaster among pupils by wearing suits when his leader is clothed in MCP regalia.

Like many Malawians, I have written many exams in university, and I have never known anyone to ace an exam they assumed was going to be easy, in the first place. The epitome of arrogance, and the subsequent lack of preparation just “kills” you, before you know it. Only smarts don’t cut it; hard work does.
So, oChakwera and Mia are not taking the upcoming elections seriously? Apparently not, as all they want is access to power … “easy entrance” to state house. Really?
Not too late yet to learn to take things seriously. Very seriously.

I have always said MCP is a soft target. Mia will want to get his money back. As a businessman, don’t expect Mia just to sit quiet – he has funded the party. MCP was skint before Mia came in to rescue the dead party. He gave the Range Rover to Chakwera. He paid some of the MCP bills. Mia is a businessman like Bakili Muluzi. Azasolola nayenso ameneyu kuti abwenze zake. Scam Chakwera, Scam MCP and scam Mia.

Kongelesi, dream on. Mia is broke now. He sold Cold Storage. We know Mia is being sponsored by some religious affiliated elements from the east oil-rich nations. Chakwera swindled money donated to MCP by Simbi few weeks ago. MCP are trying to cover up the fact that Chakwera duped MCP of money meant for campaign. There is crisis at MCP – these guys have been covering up but it is a matter of time. MCP has proved already it is a party not to be trusted. Look at how their primaries are going – thieving scam MCP. No chance to… Read more »

Refuting is part of the cover up. Do you expect Simbi to accept that he donated the money, knowing he would be risking his multi million dollar contract with the DPP government? Do you know what the word “politics” means? Just shows your lack of political mind. M’busa uyu ngwakuba. Ndiwosolola. Ndiwogona. Wombwambwana. SKC has done more to challenge the DPP government in four months than your docile so called leader of opposition Chakwera has done in 4 years 6 months. Bring on another argument. Chakwera is scam. MCP is scam. Look at the dodgy primaries MCP did, fixing candidates… Read more »

Bwana Mulomwe does it mean that u’re telling us SKC is a saint. This means u don’t know him as well, ask those who have been close to him and u will be surprised he is another crook. Had it been he was given the DPP torch bearer zimene akunena panozi bwezi kuli ziii. This is out of frustration my dear. Try to get hold of those who know him and listen to them carefully with sober mind u will see the truth. Chakwera has his running mate named earlier so be it let ur candidate do the same if… Read more »

Its so funny kuti zitowaphweteka ndi a UTM ndi DPP( Kupha,Katangale ,Kusankhana mitundu ndi Kubar) .There is nothing in common between MCP and UTM for them to form an alliance .Let UDF,UTM and DPP form an alliance with Chilima as running mate .Ife timatokana Zupusisana.MCP ikakhala Ku Opposition sitengeka ngati enawa angofuna maudindowa.Mark my words after 22 May next year UDF,DPP and UTM will sit on the same Side- ndi ana kamozi .Ife MCP imatinenera enao akudya Maphwevuphwevu.Viva MCP.
