Mkaka viciously attacks Atupele, calling him ‘Chipwaza’: Tells Mutharika to ‘come out of Sanjika’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) secretary general Elsenhower Mkaka on Monday viciously attacked   Atupele Muluzi, who is also running mate to President Peter Mutharika in the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and UDF Alliance, calling him names  during a opposition Tonse Alliance televised rally at Njamba Freedom Park in Blantyre.

Mkaka:  President Mutharika should come out of Sanjika and face Chakwera in debate

In his campaign speech at the rally,  Mkaka branded Atupele as “Chipwaza” (stale pumpkin).

He accused Atupele of using religion and tribal card in his campaign for the June 23 fresh presidential election.

Mkaka said Atupele claimed that the late Malawi Police Service Superintendent Usumani Imedi was killed during protests at Msundwe last year because he was a Muslim from Mangochi but yet he did not speak anything about Issa Njauju, another Muslim who was killed while working for the Anti-Corruption Bureau.

“Njauju, too, was a Muslim and was murdered during Ramadhan, he should speak about it,” said Mkaka.

He also said a family of Tambala in Lilongwe – who are muslims – also lost parents and left kids wounded and orphaned because they were petrol bombed in political violence and that Atupele has not condemned such barbarcic acts.

Repeatedly calling Atupele  as ‘Chipwaza’, Mkaka  proceeded to launch into an extended rant against President Mutharika’s running , saying he not accuse MCP of atrocities in the one-party dictatorship.

Mkaka conceeded that there were atrocities in MCP which included brutual murder of four cabinet ministers and an MP.

But he said Atupele’s father, former president Bakili Muluzi, is on record saying late Aaoron Gagama cried while being butchered by MCP, wondering how did the former president heard such cries.

He said the people MCP killed which included Attati Mpakati and how it trapped the party founder Orton Chirwa who later died in prison, some of the architects are in the current regime.

Mkaka said MCP which ruled the country under one-party dictatorship  is not the same party being led by Lazarus Chakwera – the opposition torchbearer in the fresh elections.

MCP secretary general also challenged President Mutharika to show himself up to the people.

He said Malawians who are Mutharika’s bosses are conducting interviews and they want the President to come and present his CV to them.

“Come out of your cocoon, Chakwera has challenged you for a public debate,” Mkaka said.

Earlier, Timothy Mtambo also embarked on tirades against Atupele, saying he is an elite who went to good schools and did not suffer in life  like most of the Malawians.

He urged the youth to go out and vote for Chakwera.

Atupele said lat Saturday at his rally in Lilongwe that he will focus on issue-based campaign and avoid cheap politics which will not develop Malawi but only bring chaos.

What has the death of rebels got to do with nowadays politics? In those days there were government sponsored killings done by Mosad in Israel, the KGB in the Sovient Union, CIA in the USA etc in the name of state security. If this happened during multiparty democracy it would be another issue. Just recently the Americans killed Qasem Soleimani because he was a threat to National Security and a threat to American interests. What I can say is that we should not be using such things for political mileage. Atupele was wrong to use the death of a police… Read more »

For the past one year MCP has shown Malawians what it is capable of and what it is Chipani Cha Nkhanza. Vote for it at your own peril. Musazanene kuti simunawuzidwe.

Salute to all well meaning Malawians denouncing these dambwe idiots..No to MCP..the party that never planned for Malawi structurally. All these problems we are facing it’s because of MCP 31 years.Kamuzu amayika pamipando mbuzi za anthu ozidala,ozimwale..for 31 years zitsuru zokhazokha no vision no what! Dziko kungokhala ngati ka grocery ka kwa kasiya..shame!

Braveheart, if you could be honesty for once, we could all agree that mcp looked after the most disciplined, productive and successful government administration malawi will ever see. If udf continued on development foundation that mcp left, i’m sure malawi could be 5 times better than it is today. Malawi was producing and assembling almost everything we are importing today, we had successful industries that udf sold, sustainable public transport in rural and urban, well equipped hospitals, world class primary, secondary and university education-that has gone to the dogs under udf/dpp today, students were travelling to all corners of the… Read more »

A good number of Malawians are a bunch of fools and a sorry people, we rebuke and support others not because they said anything right or wrong but because it resonates with or against what we support. Mkaka’s tantrums were not an argument but rather a response to Atupele’s useless campaigning strategy and if mcp could not respond, you the very same people could say its an admission of guilty. Honestly, old mcp was not a lion or leopard that was unleashed to kill people but people in mcp killing people not because they were protecting the party itself but… Read more »

@Martin if your argument is anything to go by then surely neither of these parties are good. Masangwi is implicated in the murder of Chasowa and today Masangwi is with utmcp meaning the party is as bad as dpp which has Ntaba n Dausi. In short no party in Malawi is clean. If we keep this trend of politics then surely we won’t go anywhere. Yes DPP can lose the election but that will not mean mcp/utm will bring heaven on earth, we will still walloping in this abject of poverty while these politicians will be enjoying themselves. They were… Read more »
