TA hails MCP for mending fences: Kunkuyu urges AFORD and UDF to emulate

Transformation Alliance (TA) has commended Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and its entire leadership for making efforts to unite the different factions that have been emerging in the party.

Kunkuyu: Let President Mutharika face MPs grilling

Lately there have been noticeable divisions in the party with some members siding with the party’s Leader Dr Lazarus Chakwera while others have been calling for a convention to set up new leadership.

The MCP top brass met recently at the party’s headquarters in Lilongwe where according to a statement the party secretariate released, several issues were discussed to end the impasses and resolved to sail in the same boat.

Reacting to the news, TA Leader Moses Kunkuyu said this is a welcomed development.

“This is commendable and if we had genuine intra party democracy in the political parties in the country we would definitely have evencfewer parties in the country and all of them would be built on an ideology with which they would be identified,” said Kunkuyu.

Currently, the writing is on the wall that most parties either do not have a clear ideological direction or their ideologies are not popularised because of squabbles within the parties.

“The political choices are driven by thievery and political propaganda not on ideology. Those who cheat more than the other or those who have a better propaganda machinery win the elections and end up failing to deliver when in Government because propaganda and cheating in elections does not translate into high level performance by those who make it into Government,” he said.

He therefore warned Political parties not take people for granted saying Malawians are now more knowledgeable are able to notice when things are not well in the so called major political parties.

Kunkuyu has since urged the United Democratic Front (UDF) and the Alliance for Democracy (AFORD) to emulate what MCP has done arguing If all the parties in the country were fully democratic, they would be forced to compete on the basis of their ideology not merely on propaganda which is the case now.

Commenting on the planned demonstrations championed by the Public Affairs Committee (PAC), Kunkuyu said this is a sign of maturity in the country’s democracy.

“Where people are exercising their right to demonstrate, democracy wins” he said.

He urged Malawians especially the youth to heed the call and cease this opportunity to express their displeasure with the executive arrogance being displays by the the current administration.

Sober young person ….very true things havent been well in MCP and things are visibly not well in UDF as well as in AFORD ….in DPP we cant tell since they have tge veil of power over their face but if the other parties would ensure intra party democracy surely they would compete on policies. Bravo young man

I think Kunkuyu is cool. That is why during the administration of JB he was information minister who talked sensible things not the Dausi the bombastic wont help the country.
