Mutharika, Chakwera clash in Mangochi: MCP defiant, to go ahead with whistle-stop tours

Main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) says it will go ahead with its planned whistle stop tours and a rally in Mangochi on Saturday although the District Commissioner has advised the party to put it on hold.

Chakwera: Set to barnstom Mangochi

The District Commissioner wrote the party on Thursday to put the whistle stop tours and the rally in Monkey Bay on hold because President Peter Mutharika would be using the same route for his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) whistle stop tours as well.

But MCP publicity secretary Maurice Munthali said the party applied for the political activity long ago before Mutharika.

“We followed all the procedures, we complied with the law and we will go ahead with the whistle stop tours and the rally in Monkey Bay,” he said.

Munthali said Mutharika would be responsible if violence erupts between supporters of the DPP and MCP.

President Mutharika would be on the whistle stop tours on his way to Zomba where he will be guest of honour at a DPP eastern region fundraising event at Zomba State Lodge.

Malawians: who calls the shots on peace and security matters in this country? Malawi Police or MCP? Our Police play an important role to minimize friction and conflict, including internecine conflicts, especially during charged political gatherings. And, so, MCP would be advised to heed the Police advice; or take responsibility for injuries, and destruction of property. And pay compensation. How does MCP not get the point that APM is not a dictator, but being citizen number one in this country, he actually does supersede oChakwera whether he likes it or not? Or, is this defiance on the part of MCP… Read more »

Nkhalamba yokubayi itivuta. Typical of nkhalamba stubbornness as they approach the gates to hell or heavens. Our thieving nkhalamba is surely going to hell for stealing from the poor. Had it been in Saudi Arabia dzanja lotha Kalelo tidakatseteka.
