PAC cautions MCP on ‘civil war’

The interfaith democracy watchdog  Public Affairs Committee (Pac) has cautioned the country’s main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) to resolve its internal wrangles if Malawians are to regard it seriously.

Mkaka: There is external force causing problems in MCP

MCP remains the only biggest opposition party in the country considered as an alternative government but lately the party has been subjected to divisions that have resulted in some of its top officials being expelled from executive committee as others are forming parallel forces to fight against the party president Lazarus Chakwera.

In an interview with Nyasa Times on Thursday, Pac Publicity Secretary, Father Peter Mulomole noted that the country’s opposition especially MCP is in disarray and is failing to fight for the plight of Malawians.

“The opposition is in disarray. They have to put their house in order. Look what is happening in Malawi Congress Party (MCP) for example,” he said.

“Opposition is having problems. There is in-house fighting in MCP’ up today they are failing to put their house in order. They need to sort their issues out, because the party lacks leadership.”

MCP deputy Secretary General, Eisenhower Mkaka conceded the party is experiencing internal wrangles but attributed the situation to external influences.

“We agree with the observation but it is important to note that the wrangles in the party are being fuelled by external forces. The purpose is to divide and rule. We are reliably informed that government is using some civil society organizations to discredit MCP,” said Mkaka.

Mkaka said the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) was taking advantage of some of weak minded officials in MCP to create disorder.

“These wrangles apparently are as theresult of some weak minds in the party. External forces are taking advantage of such minds that allow to be used, and we understand the concerns of Malawians,” said Mkaka.

He said currently the party was working on restoring order in readiness for 2019 elections.

“We are reorganizing ourselves to win back the trust of Malawians; we understand their concerns. We will make making sure that we are organized and united to give Malawians the hope they need. Malawians need to see that we are the alternative government,” he added.

Recently Pac attacked President Peter Mutharika’s led government, saying it has failed as it is riddled with corruption and fraud and that it has lost track of its promises.

Pac has since called for a new political and state architecture.

    Its a two man show. I miss the magnificent Kabwira, Njovuylema, Kalow, Chatinkha, Jumbe and others. The leadership of Chakwera and Mkaka has failed the party miserably. 2017 is the time to organise the party by firing these two arrogant leaders and elect a trusted leadership that will take APM by the horns. We hve no time to waste as this is the time to position the party to win elections in 2019.

    Game yagona ku South, 1+1=3, yes, we,need a new leadership that should ensure that MCP get 35% vote of the south for both presidential and mp; but i can’t see it in the alliance with Mia as he is a spent force and furthermore, deputy president Lombola needs to be replaced as he add no value in the South. Uyu mwaya wamasiye, Soldier Lucio’s can be a good catch if we manipulation good as he is in bad blood with both UDF and DPP but can bring tremendous influence in the south for grass-root to orient towards MCP. Its time to change leadership and the voice of Kabwila be heard; Out Chakwera

    Title of the article is very misleading and dangerous. Nyasatimes please check your write ups before posting

    The first point is that Nyasa Times reporter who attended the press release by PAC must be taught dressing code when appearing on such forums, his looks resembled that of a street kid no worthy the title of a journalist. : A PHUNZITSENI KUSAMBA AKAMAPITA KUGULU”. (Teach them to be tidy and clean when attending public functions). Politics is all but conflict management, without decenting views, you cannot form a vibrant organization. It is healthy for MCP, remember that where there are two people agreeing on each and every point, one of them is a dead person.

  5. berson kaunga says:

    but the title and message do not match. where has the so called civil war and the pac thing been mentioned, if not only for pac little by little turning into mcp sympathisers according to mulomole outburst?

    My congress ..mmmmmm

  7. FATHARAA says:

    kodi MCP ndi mkaka ndi chakwela basi?kutha kwa Malawi Crocodile Party uku.Aise ungachite rebuild this NYAU CULT? how? as young as you are? Your vodoo-like organization will never win elections in new Malawi.Anyau inu mumalimbana ndi DPP bwanji ? This Chipani cha ng’ona must stop this childish mukaka vomiting his shit anyhow.He and his preacherman must also learn to respect the nyau elders OK,and how come the whole nyau cult (party)is being led by runaway Reverend when the REAL MCP( old Nkholokolo )are mitu phwi?kodi amavina gule abusa… mwikho!!!! ukhalirazomangolimbana ndi ma external forces ife tapita DPP BOMAAAAAAA!

  8. harawa says:

    Mr Trendex, I put it in black and white that MCP NEC was right to kick outspoken publicity secretary Jessie Kabwila because she is uninitiated on right sitting behaviours pachitumbuka alije nkhalo panyakhe titi mulunkhu, big hearted, know-it-all henceforth, she shud participate from sidelines. MCP is big than individual. She can also learn from Akweni Kaliati how she behaves when she has some arguments with her friends inside and out DPP

  9. Achi says:

    I like u Mkaka! Acceptance is the key word. Osati za Dausi, he opposses and quashes every thing that the word of wisdom says to correct DPP.

    Mkaka, thats professionalism and sanity

  10. Zuze says:

    The squabbles are being funded purposefully.

  11. mtete says:

    Why can’t MCP hold the wretched convention and be done with. This will confirm the top leadership and silent the detractors once and for all.

    The weak minded stooges are taking advantage of the loophole in the party’s structure whereby the NEC was empowered at the last convention to fill vacant positions. This was wrong and gives reasonable grounds for those who were vying for positions to challenge the leadership.

    Is it a question of resources?

    Mkaka ndi wabodza lakhunkhuniza.

    A Chakwera zikuderani ngati simutsatira zomwe mamembala womwe asunga chipanichi muwataye.

  13. MAUNITS says:

    DPP is finished already Pitala is finished and he knows Prof Dr Chakwera waku state house yimene Pitala mmene Kamuzu amamanga iye kunalibeko. Kodi Kamuzu akanakhala sali visionary leader bwezi atamanga agalu awa. Akulephera kumanga ma office achipani nzoona mpaka pano kumapanga rent ku city ati headquarters yachipani old wenera zoona zimenezo akudziwa agalu awa kuti Pitala akadzangoluza adzathawa ngati JB kuopa kunjatidwa ndi katangale muli mmadzi dzanja la aMbuye lalemba basi Chakwera waku State. MCP woyeeeeee! Kwachaaaaaaaaaaa ku Malawi.

  14. hatton says:

    zoonadi PAC yalowa Malawi Crocodiles Party (MCP). Why treating these killers with kids gloves? PAC cannot even question the over K800 million house being constructed in Lilongwe near Maula prison. They are busy offering clues to have their new organization reorganized. What a shame?
    I salute Blantyre Synod for exposing the thugs in PAC.
    Kodi a Mulomole, khusa lonse lija anatola akuba lija munalitenga kuti? was that your cut for a job well done? nanga aChingotawo anachita pocket zingati? What a shame for PAC?

  15. Reh Juwa says:

    Good price but the heading is misleading. Know how to use words properly. Why use civil war when there is nothing mentioned in the content. Let us use words appropriately

    1. opinion says:

      Good observation Reh Juwa! Maurice Nkawihe is poor at written English. The titles of his articles do not reflect their contents. Do not take his articles seriously, they may be a misrepresentation of the truth!!!!

  16. Zudi Mzee says:

    MCP, can you sort out these differences now. We want change in 2019, tiwoneko zina, Chakwera is the only man who can rescue Malawians from these thieves who in three years they only succeeded in stealing our monies.

  17. Naje says:

    BIG PROBLEM WITH MCP IS THAT IT
    DOESNT WELCOME OTHER PEOPLE FROM OTHER REGIONS
    IN ITS EXECUTIVE

    THEY TAKE IT THE SAME WAY THEY USED
    TO DO DURING KAMUZU ERA

    THEY LACK POLITICS OF INCLUSIVENESS IN
    MCP

    I DONT IF THEY HAVE EYES TO SEE THIS? ?

    HENCE GIVING CHANCES TO THESE DEAD
    PARTIES

    TIME IS GONE WHEN YOU TAKE A PARTY
    AS A PERSONAL ENTITY LIKE AFFORD AND UDF

  18. Chasekelera Chakwiya says:

    Kkkkkkkk PAC wabwino nde uti? Wamkulu akalakwitsa amangosintha tune… Boma lalephera opposition yalepheranso? Mungosintha khalidwe, mwadzudzulidwa mokwanira mpaka kuuzidwa kuti PAC ndi chipani…

  19. Trendex says:

    MKAKA IS RIGHT. THERE IS A GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT THE MBC IS FEATURING MOST OF THE TIMES TO TARNISH THE IMAGE OF THE MCP AND ITS LEADERSHIP. I THINK YOU KNOW THE PARTY WHICH ASSOCIATED WITH STATE CONTROLLED MEDIA HOUSE. SECONDLY, I PLEAD WITH MAN OF GOD DR CHAKWERA TO REINSTATE KABWIRA AND OTHERS WHO WERE IN NEC TO MAKE THE PARTY STRONG AGAIN. THOSE BUSINESS TYCOONS THAT ARE USED BY MBC SHOULD BE LEFT OUT AND CONTINUE TO USED. IF 2019 ELECTIONS WILL BE FREE, CREDIBLE AND FAIR (NOT AS RIGGED 2014), MCP IS GOVERNMENT IN WAITING. DR. CHAKWERA OR SPOKESPERSON TO DR CHAKWERA, TAKE THESE WORDS SERIOUSLY AS MR MKAKA ALSO OBSERVES WITH LAMENTATION.

  20. Akatwiri says:

    please put your house inoder

  21. Very true,but that divide and rule is being influenced by the rulling DPP,fortunately mcp is able to spot those disgruntled
    MCP Members quickly and act promptly. LASTLY do not worry MCP is going to run this country peter is finish.
    kkkkkkkkk

  22. Kalyoto says:

    Why mcp always blames others on their own problems? Be civilized and deal your own wrangles internally, or just go back to school Mr Kamka and learn what is it about “problem solving”.
