‘MCP followers chased me at a funeral’ – Jappie Mhango


Malawi’s Information Minister Jappie Mhango succumbed to shame on Tuesday when locals at a funeral in Junju, Rumphi got angered by his presence before chasing him away.

However, Mhango believes opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) was behind the heightened situation.

Mhango: His car is seen at far at far distance.

The fuss began when ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) members, who spoke at a funeral for ex-legislator Tasokwa Msiska, said the party would win again in the next polls.

The speakers also took MCP to task for being on the neck of the current regime all time. Reports say Mhango who is legislator for the constituency (Rumphi North) was then asked by the family of the deceased to leave because they feared the situation would cause havoc at the funeral.

The family said it did not want any political fights to rock the ceremony as other political party followers protested against remarks made by the DPP members at the funeral.

Mhango told a local radio that the area is a stronghold of MCP and that the locals there do not tolerate political views from other parties.

This comes hot on the heels of continued verbal attacks between DPP and MCP whose leaders accuse each other of failure.

  3. Why are saying that MCP chased the minister yet he is the incumbent mp of that constituency? He was voted on DPP ticket by DPP supporters. What I can see in this issue is that something went wrong with this minister! He must learn to tell the truth.
