Mulanje Council chase away ‘MCP strangers’ from chamber

Opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) dominated Mulanje district council on Tuesday chased away district Malawi Congress Party (MCP) officials who had gone to the chamber to attend a council meeting.

Mulanje district council chairman Richard Chikhwakhwa said the councilors and the legislators felt that council meetings are not political.

District deputy publicity secretary for MCP Blessings Matiya confirmed that him and another party district official Omar Adin were given marching orders from the meeting by an uncompromising DPP councilors and members of parliament.

“We were invited to attend the meeting by the district commissioner in our capacity as ruling party officials.

“Unfortunately, we were told to leave, so for the sake of peace, we obliged and we left the chamber,” said Matiya.

District council chairman Richard Chikhwakhwa said the councilors and the legislators felt that council meetings are not political.

“We discuss development for our areas therefore it was out of order to bring in politicians,” said Chikhwakhwa.

District commissioner Mwambiya said guests are allowed during council meetings, including journalists.

The district commissioner said he would report to the ministry of Local Government and Rural Development on the matter for the way forward.

What a shame with African politics you take opposition as your enemy. Opposition will make you correct your mistakes. Mulanje DPP wake up this 2020 work together and rebuild the country. You can’t work without opposition You sit down and talk about building the country not chasing people. That’s why Africa we are a laughing nation. Look at footballers after playing they shake hands or even go out and celebrate together with the other team.Lets love one another and buid the warm heart of Africa please. Stop this nonsense. So after chasing the opposition what have you solved???

Did MCP allow DPP menbers to go into council meetings in the central region? MCP and Chewas ndi anthu a tsankho. DPP should not allow them to infiltrate the Southern region.

It is unbelievable, the Lomwes should understand that Malawi is a democratic country, no district council should believe they can chase others if they don’t belong to their party. Tonse Alliance is ruling, and they have to get used to it. The primitive behaviour demonstrated by the Mulane council should be stopped.

Good! MCP should not invade DPP areas. MCP never allowed DPP to go to the central region. In fact, DPP and UDF members and monitors were chased and beaten.
