These are the two parties that have taken Malawi and Malawians backwards and they simply take advantage of ignorance to continue ruling. Malawians are very strange people and they do not care whether they are suffering or not. These idiots in dpp and atupele muluzi are leading very confortable lives while these poor idiots are simply chewing misale and kudya mbatata.

Lesson for MCP. The Eastern and Southern regions of Malawi are key regions to make MCP get into government come May, 2019. HENCE, VIGOROUS CAMPAIGN BY MCP MUST BE CONDUCTED IN THESE TWO REGIONS. Ofcourse without losing grip of the Centre. GET MORE ORGANIZED TO BOOT OUT MBAVA M’ BOMA PLEASE!!

The parties you have mentioned, which one was not there that can now make MCP win? Why didn’t MCP win in 2014 with all that sharing of voters among the three big parties?

Malawi politics will never change or put it more bluntly, Malawians will never change (at least not in the next 20 years). Malawi has the most uneducated and poorest voters in the world.

Malawi’s politics is too funny we vote based on tribe, region and finances any party that can use the such criteria and calculate it well based on demographic carry the day. come 2019 DPP will carry the day because of the demographic in the southern region and the opportunities to penetrate in the central region. MCP is having the disadvantage because of its inability to penetrate the southern region and to build strong base in the central region as Ntcheu, Salama and Nkhotakota are go zone for the ruling party and some parches in other districts like Kasungu, Mchinji and… Read more »
