MP Harry Mkandawire ‘responds positively’ to joining MCP

A new step in the realignment of Malawi politics ahead of the 2019 Tripartite elections, veteran politician and business magnet Harry Mlekanjala Mkandawire  has welcomed an open invitation by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera to join the party.

Mkandawire: I am interested in MCP

Mkandawire, who recently joined Chakwera in the MCP campaign for by-elections which the party triumphed, said people tired of being ruled by dishonest leaders.

He said the  realignment of politics must be about the values that leaders share with the people they serve.

Mkandawire said politicians with interests of Malawians at heart should pull together with an agenda that can take Malawi  forward.

“I am interested in MCP because the party’s leadership speaks against nepotism which is common in the Democratic Progressive  Party,” said Mkandawire.

Mkandawire said his association with MCP – which at the moment is sailing in the glory of its October 17 by-elections  wins– is not just political pragmatism and finding a different home but  about saying‚ “let us get together so that we can put Malawi development agenda forward and I am willing to work with people like that.”

Former People’s Party (PP) vice-president for the Northern Region, said the results of the by-elections is a big lesson to the arrogant, senseless, heartless and corrupt leadership in the ruling DPP that Malawians are not happy.

The Mzimba West MP said  Malawians are not happy with DPP’s  arrogance, insensitivity and taking Malawians for granted.

He said DPP has failed to alleviate poverty paid lip service to fighting corruption.

Chakwera you are now inviting thugs into MCP? Kkkkkkkk. You will count the cost!


Same old tired names……. Komanso!

Bwana Mkandawire, inu mudzafera limodzi ndi MCP yanu yomweyo. Ice tikudziwa kuti all your thoughts are just for your self. How long had you dumped PP and I remember you were once DPP. U r unstable and you are opportunist. You see this Govtbis not favouring your business and you don’t get Govt contracts anymore. Akufinyani and you r not breathing that’s why you want to join MCP. Mawanga mulinawo a DPP and onse anathawa DPP Bingu atangomwalira ZANU sizizakuyenderani mpaka mudzapepese. Mwagufa pa 2019 Boma ndilomweri. You think DPP coming from Opposition in 2014 was a joke?

This is a welcome news to MCP. I however also invite Khumbo Kachali to join MCP now.


Nothing is sweeter than this news. If people thought Chakwera was a political novice, they should think again. Otherwise, the guy was robbed of his electoral victory in 2014. This has been demonstrated by how popular his political institution is becoming every day. DPP watch out and get ready to vacate government.

Unlike your party, MCP is for all the people nationally. It is not a family party. In MCP anyone can become a president from any family. It is a vibrant party.


Let us all celebrate this good news! MCP is the new political and development hope for Malawi.

DPP Boma 2019
I have been following the conversations here on Nyasatimes. 1. There is no way you can expect for DPP to win in the Mchinji and Lilongwe, the backyard of the MCP regime. 2. We the Lhlomwes are not just going to give out Boma just like that. we will put in good political fight and achewa nonse muzadabwa DPP Ikulowanso mu Boma 2019 3. The fact that people from the North are not pro DPP does not mean kuti tiluza chisankho you are just a minority 4. Chiyambireni multiparty ku Malawi kuno Chilipo Chipani chomwe chinasuppotedwa ndi anthu a ku… Read more »
