Msungama bros give MCP vehicles: Survey says Malawi fresh elections ‘close contest’

The Msungama brothers, Kondi and Mike, have given Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential hopeful Lazarus Chakwera a boost with a donation of five vehicles which will be vital during the campaign period for the fresh presidential elections.

Kondi Msungama is second deputy spokesperson of MCP while Mike Msungama, a businessman, is a staunch supporter and one of the close aides for Chakwera.

The two gave a donation of the vehicles to boost chances of Chakwera forming the next MCP government.

The Msungama brothers said they purchased the vehicles using their own personal money.

They said their contribution to MCP machinery will help in mobilization of resources as the party grows stronger towards what could be a victory at the fresh elections.

Meanwhile, according to Afrobarometer survey report, electoral alliances of the governing party DPP and UDF as well as the opposition alliance led by MCP torchbearer Chakwera will not be able to amass majority vote – which is 50 percent of the electorate plus one.

The Afrobarometer which is an independent, nonpartisan research project that measures the social, political, and economic atmosphere in Africa says the fresh presidential elections could be tightly contested.

In the survey, MCP and its alliance partners (Tonse) would poll 44 percent – 32 percent MCP plus 12 percent UTM Party – while DPP-UDF alliance has been given 34 percent of the opinion survey – 32 percent DPP plus two percent UDF.

“However we do not know whether voting decision might be affected by the way alliances have been forged,” Joseph Chunga, one of the lead research team members opines in the report.

Governance commentator Makhumbo Munthali, who is a member of the Political Scientists Association of Malawi, observed that UDF and UTM popularity have decreased but pointed out that “looking at the areas where UTM boast of some dominance, it would be difficult to see such percentage opting not to vote for MCP-UTM alliance.”

The alliances will have to canvass hard for the undecided voters or the swing voters  – about 22 percent –  who could push them to a majority in the polls.

Malawi belong to the citizens

Afrobarometer, bodza ili if MCP won 35% last election and UTM 20% automatically the percentage of this alliance is increasing.Its not 44% it’s more than 57%, the other 2% is coming from the voters who want these parties to form an alliance in last year’s elections.And if there is no tippex, no subtraction of Chakwera and Chilima votes, this means the Tonse alliance will even reach 60%.Malawians knows that DPP and UDF alliance belong to thieves.Kubera zisankho ndinumber one.This time is nyekhwe after nyekhwe.

Stupid survey. Opitikisana anthu awiri (Mbakuwaku dead) so there can be two possibilities only, either 50:50 or 50 + 1 to 50-1, zamtonjani zanuzo zisatitayitsa nthawi. By the way Kodi Survey imeneyi amapangila kuti?

What a close contest? You mean you have forgotten that APM’s convoy was chased in Ndirande? Or you just want to create an atmosphere for thieving again. This time it won’t work. You have just missed it!

bola osakalanda mukaluza chisankho! problem is most of the UTM-MCP bandwagon are already counting unhatched eggs as chickens. This is why MCP never accepts any elections result. kwachukuka atidye nawo. Muwona Nyekhwe simunati!

This is the same survey results for October 2019, the reporter has just added the numbers and conduct interviews. It was before Ndirande went against Mutharika which eventually made the old man went into hiding. The old man is afraid to face another Ndix experience… Game ndi zikwanje… Jane Ansah doesn’t want Muslims thus why she does not want to help D-phi-phi… I can only imagine how those that put their trust in a woman(flesh) are feeling right now. Put your trust in God not rigging through a man. God will judge evildoers… See! Mtambo is attracting crowds, Chilima on… Read more »

Kondi is a certified con man. For goodness sake where did he get the money to buy all those vehicles. This guy is a benefactor of Jack Kamwendo and even fails to pay school fees for his kids at South End. For goodness sake where did he get the money to donate to Chakwera. Uyu alibe kana nyumba amakhala pa rent ngakhale magalimoto amene amayendera ndiwobwereka. Ntchito kupana akazi olemera kuti adziwadyera. Stupi.
