Mphidza quits PP: ‘I cannot associate with MCP’

The People’s Party (PP) deputy regional secretary for the South, Leonard Mphiza, has last year made a name after competing  with  party president Joyce Banda at the elective convention on Monday announced his resignation from the post  and withdrew his membership because Banda withdrew from the presidential race in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections and instead endorsed Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

Mphidza (lefT says he has quit PP because Banda is not contesting for presidency and instead is backing MCP

Speaking on Monday in an interview , Mphidza said  he was uncomfortable to work with MCP and that he was not consulted.

“So definitely I am not part of that alliance since I was not consulted and I have already informed the party’s Secretary General that they should count me out of that alliance,” said Mphidza.

Mphidza said last time the NEC met out of the three parties which were on the list to partner with that’s, DPP, MCP and UTM the majority opted for UTM seconded by DPP and MCP only got 4 votes from 68 NEC members.

According to Mphidza,  PP has got nothing to gain from the coalition and is not in the interest of the party because most followers of PP will not be happy to be associated with MCP.

Meanwhile, Mphiza said he will soon announce his next move before next week as some sources claim he will be joining DPP in Blantyre.

Mphidza was the only person who challenged Joyce Banda for the position of President during last year convention where he was defeated when he got 23 votes only whereas JB got 1,101.

I am speechless that Malawi has still principled people like Mphidza. All people with conscious must follow suit.

Does this man Mphiza eat? He looks malnourished and like a scarecrow. One wonders what sense can come out of him

MCP is a party not a person. People who made MCP bad are no longer in MCP but in other parties. This is why you see people having guns in the public now without being asked by police. Where is Dausi?

Mphidza, should tell us the truth, if you are not happy with the name MCP, then I respect your decision but when you say you can not associate with MCP as a Party, then I get you wrong because MCP has been totally rebranded by the same people from PP, we are talking of new MCP, most senior members are from PP, I know you hate your Sena friend who is Regional Chair for MCP for the southern region,, but all the same BON VOYAGE

Rebranding cannot happen with the very same name in sight. MCP is MCP period. Yemwe analumidwapo ndi njoka yaotchedwa “mphiri” its very difficult to convince him/her kuti mphiri inakulumani ija inali yakudima pamene iyi ndi yakuphiri. It doesn’t make sense. MCP Headquarters is located at the same place in Lilongwe.
