Mia dispute MEC stringer’s report: ‘I did not endorse Kabwila’s MCP parliamentary candidature’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  Vice President Sidik Mia has denies as report by Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) stringer’s report that he endorsed Member of Parliament (MP) Dr Jessie Kabwira as the party’s candidate for Salima North West Constituency in the forthcoming tripartite elections.

Mia: I dit not endorse Kabwila

According to MEC Stringer in Salima, while introducing Kabwira as the party’s candidate at Works Football Ground in the district, Mia also urged other aspirant to work in unity and make the party strong.

However, the party Veep has  denied making such remarks saying that “this is a misrepresentation of facts and  pure propaganda work.”

“Never at any point in my speech did I declare Hon. Kabwira the torchbearer of the party in her constituency. The official torchbearer of a party in any constituency is picked by party delegates in that constituency after undergoing a party sanctioned primary election.

“As to whether Hon. Kabwira will be the torchbearer of the party or not, that position will be determined by the party delegates in her constituency and not the deputy president of the party, let alone any party official. These are basic tenets of democracy and MCP is a democratic party,” he said in a press statement.

The incumbent Salima North west legislature is facing a stiff competetion  from a youthful aspirant Enock Phale.

Kabwila is reported to be under pressure with the presence of Phale hence becoming so desperate to retain the party’s  candidature for the constituency for next year’s general polls through a backdoor.

Ndipo tu mkuluyu anthu amudziwa mochedwa kuti aakuluwa nde eniake nepotism. he pushed his way to become MCP VP by corrupting Mr Chakwera, then he imposed his wife as a shadow MP in Chikwawa. as if that not enough he imposed another relative in Balaka west a shadow MP in the name of Harron Mia. Is this not nepotism? Akadzalowa m’boma all his sons, daughters and relatives adzawapezela tchito mu boma.

Kenako all his sons, daughters relatives adzawapezera tchito mu boma. After this he will go to his home in Pakistan kukatenga all his nieces and nephews. Maybe afterwards he may also call all his relatives from Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan etc etc onse adzadzadza kuno and be syphoning forex away from Malawi. Guys this is a time bomb, a disaster in the making, ine ndakuwuzani

Mia is clearly not telling the truth here: he was quoted accurately; and as Kabwila’s supporters are concerned, this was to pay back Kabwila for her recent efforts campaigning for Mia’s wife in the Lower Shire. So, the denial by Mia simply won’t cut it.
Is it possible now that oChakwera is developing a spine to put Mia in his place, and that is why Mia came out to deny this?
Oooooh, leadership issues galore in the house of oChakwera!
