The ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has labelled the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) as failures for being too critical of President Peter Mutharika.
Amidst incessant verbal wars between the two parties, DPP’s spokesperson Francis Kasaila says it is time for MCP to join hands with government.
Kasaila, while claiming that MCP will only rule Malawi in the next 100 years or never, said he believes that the mentality the opposition has had since the inception of multiparty democracy has been behind underdevelopment for this nation.
“Let the opposition come with constructive views and not always stand to oppose everything we do. Let them join us in building this nation,” Kasaila said in response to a question on how government is coping up with pressure from opposition and pressure groups.
In her reaction, MCP Publicist, Jessie Kabwila in an interview with Malawi24 on Sunday, said that it was unfortunate for the Kasaila to say that to the media.
Kabwila said that MCP is not ruling now and that it is only waiting for polls to come.
“MCP is not ruling now and all we are waiting for is the next elections. He thinks ruling is taking a lot of people to the UN. Look at what is happening in the hospitals, schools will you call this ruling.
“MCP is not only going likely rule, but will do so because of this mismanagement that they have done” she said.
MCP has since said that it is time for the DPP to pull the economy out of its troubles and not to keep trashing its critics and yet claim that it will never get out of office.
