Mia brands DPP govt ‘worse’ than ever in Malawi, confident of  MCP victory in 2019

Main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) vice president, Muhammad Sidik Mia, has described the administration led by  President Peter Mutharika as “worse” than eve,  saying they will turn tables around when the MCP gets mandate to govern after next year’s May tripartite elections.

Sidik Mia : MCP is winning next year elections

Mia, a renowned business magnate and politician, said he was sure MCP was destined for victory next year.

“Yes, I am very confident we are going to win the elections,” said Mia.

He told journalist Brian Banda of Times TV in an exclusive interview  on Saturday that MCP, which ruled the country for 31 years under Kamuzu Banda, will  see to it that Malawians are happy again.

“Malawians are going through abject poverty. Malawians are hopeless, and you can check that in hospitals where even a razor blade is not available. Should a government do that?”  queried Mia.

He described MCP president Lazarus Chakwera, who is also leader of the opposition,  as a visionary and principled man whose thoughts meant well for the people of Malawi.

Mia said the rapport between him and Chakwera was great, and that because of that, it meant they would work together for the common good of the people.

“We have come from far, and it is like we share the same blood. We are an indisputable force,” said Mia.

According to him, his aim is to see people enjoy living in the country.

“If I am satisfied with that after the first five years, I will quit politics. I will have achieved what I wanted,” he said.

Mia said he was not interested for the presidency.

“Serving the people is my aim. And the office of the vice president is one of the highest that I can hold to achieve my goal. That’s all I want,” he said.

Mia made a comeback to politics this year after he had resigned in 2014 after former president Joyce Banda had not picked him for running mate.

He hinted in the interview that had Banda picked him, she would have won the elections.

Mia is Mia, he has been with us all along. He has not helped us at all apart from displaying his greediness for money and his obsession in expanding his business mostly using dubious transactions. What makes people belief in him now? He is even worse now that before. His greediness has grown worse. The most evil thing Chakwera did to complicate MCP is his adoption of Mia.

The most Hon.Mark.I wonder whether the title of Hon.fits you.It is sad to see some Malawians loose their sense of thinking,Really,a person with all his/her senses could embrace people like an arab Mia, brain-washed Chakwera,opportunist and an embacile Harray Mkandawire.These people are just for money,they have no political love for the wretched people of Malawi.These hyenas can go anywhere they smell money.They are not committed nationalists to say the truth.Mia is an Arab, who has enriched himself through crooked means from the useless mbewa eaters in Cholo and Mulanje.Malawians,when will you wakeup you GOATS!!!!!!!!!!

If there is a people who can easily be cheated are Malawians. Real you believe in Mia? Let us take the company he runs, the old Cold storage, tell me if it is a company or a butcher. He has failed to transform it to be a mega company. How is is going to do that to the nation in five years? Or what he is saying is that his pockets will be okey in five years. Ask his employees how much they get. Fellow Malawians corruption i start in the mind. If you are corrupt in mind it will… Read more »

MIA,Malawians do not want your stupidity.Do you know that all Malawians in the country lived like SLAVES during Banda”s era? By the way, where do you come from in Malawi? Where were you all this time when Banda was ruling Malawi? In fact even if you were here,Banda did not like Arabs and Indians and he knew what kind of people you are.In fact,the MCP was the worst regime in our country,if you do not know that then, you are foolish ARAB.You are lucky to hide there in Mangoche where people are still slumbering together with those of rat-eaters.You dare… Read more »

Go Mia go. That’s the way to go. APM is shaking all over. What more with the splintered DPP following Chilima Movement which, by the way, is doomed to fail? A movement with crooks like Masangwi, Nagalande, Makondi can’t survive. How will other Movement Members view them. I tell you most of the Movement’s pioneers thought Chilima would rule under a rebranded DPP. Little did they think the Movement would be highjacked by the likes of Chidanti et al. The best these guys can do is an alliance with MCP to defeat the common, thieving DPP. l just can’t imagine… Read more »

Mr Mia and Mr Chakwera forget about winning an election. As long as you are in MCP don’t dream of being elected.” Sapita Kawiri “. Palibe amene angavotere Chakwera. Look at the figures in the first phases of registration In Kasungu Salima and Dedza. Out of 1.2 million registered voters only 50% have registered. Go and listen to what they are saying. MCP mps don’t help them. A Mia munali mboma, what things can you show people of lower shire which they can remember you for? You are a very greedy guy wofuna udindo basi. It’s you who made Chakwera… Read more »
