Trouble in MCP, Kabwila tears Chakwera apart: ‘we are being undemocratic and unconstitutional’

147

The opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is failing to have its house in order. This is after media reports have quoted the Party’s spokesperson Jessie Kabwila as saying that the party has stopped following its own constitution. Kabwila made the remarks after the party suspended 7 chairpersons.

Kabwila hits at Chakwera: You are being undemocratic

The suspension has come after the chairpersons expressed displeasure with the way the party President Lazarus Chakwera was failing to handle conflicts in the party.

“The 7 rebelled by speaking out publicly against the leadership and we therefore thought that it is best to discipline them,” said a source who opted for anonymity.

The source said that all parties have got rules of discipline that are supposed to guide the members. He said MCP was emphatic on the rules of discipline.

However the suspension done on behalf of Chakwera has rattled the party spokesperson Jessie Kabwila who media reports have lately said is not seeing eye to eye with the party President.

“I am surprised that this (the suspension) has happened. This is unconstitutional,” the MCP spokesperson has been quoted as saying in the media.

Kabwila has been quoted saying that by suspending those with dissenting views the MCP was failing to embrace elements of democracy and was throwing away the need for contact and dialogue.

The MCP has a history of dealing with a heavy hand all people who choose to disagree with what the party thinks.

  5. Mayi Kabwila don’t be stupid and don’t make yourself ignorant as these other people around. Tell me is suspension in any case a dismissal? Even at work places, schools and wherever you may think of people are suspended, suspension is just one way of disciplining people. I for one don’t see anything wrong…..and these chairmen deserve to be dismissed from the party…..I don’t care! We need development conscious minds in leadership not atidye nawo. Stop this nonsense kabwila I value your sense of integrity…..Chakwera is 100% right. If those chairmen are tired of MCP..let them disappear. ..fotseki. We don’t need appeasement ndale zonunkha zomwe zikuononga dziko in the name of Democracy. ….Rubbish.

  6. Mulungu anasankha DPP kuti izitsogolera Malawi coz ndichipani chokhacho chimene chilibe tsankho pofuna kupanga chitukuko mdziko muno. Zipani zinazi zimachita kuonetsela kuti ndizatsankho but DPP yokha ayi thats why inawinaso DPP…GOD chosen it to run this country. DPP Woyeeeeee!!!!???

  7. i don’t trust this so called malawi congress party any more,, by the way…. mcp for sell amene akuchifuna olo pa ngongole angathe kutenga

  8. Dzinakanika kupha kalulu alindibere pano alindi ana mungamukwanixe? DPP inalowa mboma kucita kucokera kunja ndie pano ilimboma dzitheka kuixoxa? Remember kt cipani cicoke mboma ximaxewer n DPP inacoka cifukwa ca maliro otherwise xizikanatheka.

  9. Sizoona kuchotsana mchipani popanda kupitakaye ku disciplinary committee. Kabwila tell them right channel. Nawonso Abusa ataniko? Ngati mukanika anthu a mchipani nanga aMalawi tonse mudzatitha? Ndaona ine, MCP itha ngati katani. PEPANI PEPANI….

  10. The Spokesperson does not speak for oneself but what the party av agreed after a meeting thus when the spokesperson speaks out for the party so if u look at what jessy kabwi has said u wil notice that its not the party but herself therefore she must be called by the party for correction.

  11. I don’t think kabwira wil overrules The mighty mcp leadership yet at the end she is detolating her political mileage. MCP is only the party whose ideology depends on majority perfection.One voice whose intinty is to tennis the stronghold of the party is immediately booted out at the end the part is still overwhelming in all bases. un democratic are those pipo who are undemocratic not MCP.we can’t cry with the death of usipa in the whole lake.

  12. I doubt if the spiritually in chakwera is still alive that’s why when David sow that he went to hands of enemies said “to fallen into the hands of God most dangerous than a man” he must cry and return to his God right now before it’s too late

  13. kuteroko a dpp munakonzekera kuti nkholokolo zanu zija mumazpatsa ndalama zikachotsedwa mulemba izi? Mulibe chikondi ndi Malawi. Zitengeni nthumwi zanu 7 mukazipatse maudindo kwanuko. ife tikuyang’na dziko mwaonongali

    • Yea, that’s real. Azilemba zaozo, but what the nation knows is, MCP with Chakwera ndi moto! Ndipo simugona tulo. Tenga nkholokolo zanu, we don’t regret the move taken so far. Mukatopa munena nokha.

  14. I don’t think that’s trouble but life realities.. People have to openly address their leaders like that if they think things are not going accordingly.. The problem is Malawians we are used to praise leaders even if they are wrong!

  15. Inu dziwani izi, UDF sikanachoka boma kupanda bingu kutulutsamo boma, DPP sikanatuluka boma kupanda kumwalila malemu, pp sikana tuluka kupanda sketi kulamulila, akanapatsa mamuna ndukulamulila zaka 2 zija, Dpp panopo zivuta kuchoka, mungoganiza ngati jb analila kuti mwandubela, kubeledwa ndi otsutsa, ndiye kulibwanji akulamulapa ndiye ndindani angadzachite nyo.

  16. Onseo ndi alendo anuwake anazisiya, achina gwanda, tembo, dausi, anaona kuti ndizosatheka mcp kudzalamulanso, anali ndi khama anali atembo, ndiye mulekeni yona alowa m,mimba mwa nsomba.

  17. Jessie you are in a camp of hyenas. Just get acclimatized. By the way, where are the crocodiles. Those 7 guys are supposed to be meat for hungry crocs in shire river.

  18. I thought MCP wud b the next ruling party aftr geting tired wit DPP,bt with these squables i’m bgning 2 loose hop nw.May b its high tym i started suportng PETRA

  19. hahahaha mcp ikakonze mavuto a muchipani mwawo ndie alimbana ndi The mighty party DPP nthawi yanji?kkk pamene mcp ili bize kukamba za dpp mpamene dpp ikukonza polakwika,pamene dpp yangokhala chete osalimbana ndi mcp mpamene chipani cha mcp chikumkerakerabe kutsatsaku musova 2019 ino

  20. People U r wasting yo time talking abt mcp,leave mcp alone they r going to settle matters on their own,wonder y members fro family parties busy wth mcp,2019 zikhala zitatha mukunama kaya akutuman mcp the national party

  21. Malawi24 kaya 25 dont misrepresent the story the issue the decision has been taken at regional level in absence of chakwera who is in USA kumavetsetsa zinthuzi

  22. Parties like any institutions whether families churches etc ought to have order! You can not just wake up to be a spokesperson! Whatever communication must pass through right passages whether democracy or not! Democracy has been understood as disorder in our country!
    Especially negative publicity must be avoided at all cost! Right fora must be respected always! Awathamangitsa ! Awachita bwino! Opanda manners!

  23. Its really unconstitutional,thix is suppose to done in afair and relative manner as one familly not political.Salute u kabwira keep on show up were wrongly done.

  24. Mundale mulibe ubale ndiye iwe umaona ngati azipanga chilichonse icho wafuna. dziwa kuti amakuyenda m’mapazi and akudziwa kuti sumasunga nkhani and mtsogoleri smasiyana ndi wotsogoleredwa!

  25. Thats what happens when God wants you to be here and you want to be there! Am nat suprised at all because no human effort can merit the approval of God…if God does not call you into that then you likely go astray….Go back to church Rev Chakwera coz thats where i feel that you would have helped in addressing all these issues affecting Malawi Theologicaly

    • Which God are u talking about? Have brains man! You mean men of God should not be rulers?? If you really know the bible, am sure you will understand wat am talking about

    • I think my point is nat vivid 2 yu…go back 2 yo Bible n see if men of God who were rulerz were doin d@ widout the annointing ov God…men of God like the prophets ie Isiah, Jeremiah Amos Ezekiel etc were doin gwd outside the political sytem and they were able 2 address political, social, religious injustices n d@s d same way ifeel with Chakwera.

  26. Actually Kabwila n Chakwerah are lovers,, that’s why you see them having un-necessary arguments in the party. Chakwerah wants to be respected as if he is the dictator of the party. I don’t think Malawians will waste their time voting for him. He is not worth being a president. I mean it. ask me why. He does not tell the government what to do but he likes criticising. Had it been he had solutions to our current problems he would have told Malawians through our ugly president on what to do. but he is full of greedy. He is saying to himself that I won’t give solutions so that Malawians should vote for me. But had it been he was telling the government on what to ,,,, Malawins would have think that he is the right man. But he is not even a right man but a greedy fool. I can sense that a certain fool will come n tell me that he is not the president,,, but how can we trust him if he is like Peter Bwampini Mutharika. We had one visionary leader n that’s Bingu. I love that guy.. even if Mcp ends today I won’t get bothered coz it’s a regional party

  27. musatinyase ndikachipani kanu ka kalekale anthu ake osasintha makhalidwe stupid ndimuuza jumani azatenga chipani cha bambo ake a kamuzu banda alongo awo a joyce hule banda inu mundiyankhulitsa pambali ndilekeni

  28. These politians won’t help us at all. No politician in Malawi is capable of running this country. They’re only good at being the devil’s advocate. If one is failing to run a mere party can he run the whole nation? And,for that,Kabwira should learn that running a country isn’t a joke.

  29. Jessie is a confused personality, not yet mature for grand old conservative MCP politics. She may be right that these 7 chaps were not supposed to be suspended but called for a grilling session ku Region. However, she was not supposed to go public of her displeasure. She is the face of MCP, how can she go against her ‘main body’? Kabwila-Kapasula too emotional and attention seeking, always!
