The party’s spokesperson Jessie Kabwila said the party knows how serious the issue is and that Malawians are eager to see if MCP is law abiding.

She claimed that MCP will show  that it is a law abiding party by doing what the law says. Kabwila also disclosed that the party will meet its legal team to discuss the court ruling.

“We will communicate to Malawians after we have a meeting with our lawyers to see the way forward,” said Kabwila.
