Speaker Msowoya ditches MCP

Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya has announce his decision to withdraw his membership from the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

Msowoya: I have dumped MCP

Msowoya, a former first vice-president who contested the 2014 elections as running mate to presidential candidature of Lazarus Chakwera, announced his decision to quit MCP on Friday at a news conference in Lilongwe.

“I am done with MCP. Time to focus on the brighter future,” he said.

Msowoya said he will now be an independent Member of Parliament.

He said that he has taken the decision after noting that MCP is no longer abiding with the four corner stones.

“I have decided to resign from the Malawi Congress Party because the party’s current state does not represent what its founders set as cornerstones of the party,” he said.

Msowoya said he will announce his next political move in days to come, but hinted he was pro transformation leadership.

Kutiwonongera nthawi yathu nzopusazi wadada Msowoya. No wonder anakuwida Ku Chancellor college. You are an empty head. You were using Kaliwo to the extent that you allowed him to buy a car duty free. What position did you hold in MCP after the convention? MCP ditched you. You hated Mia. You hated Harry Mkandawire. Go to Chilima where there is no convention. Transformation leadership is the concept of Chakwera and not you nor the Chilima movement. Pitani mukamusokonezenso Chilims ndi mtims wanu woyipayo. Munati Mia asabwere? Mwagwa nayo.

Go well Mr in fact you failed to contribute to the party as VIP, You stayed away from by election while you freinds were busy moving up and down. As vice president you were supposed to do what Mia is doing, lifting the party. And a true member of a party can not quit on the basis frustration. This only vindicates that you were not true member, only for being vip other wise you can not serve in any capacity, shame on you for being power hungry. Kabwila be a true member what ever may this is your party misunderstanding… Read more »
