War within: MCP to fire Jumbe

110

As calls for expulsion of opposition Malawi Congress Party [MCP] Member of Parliament for Salima Central Felix Jumbe from the party continue to mount, its leader Dr Lazarus Chakwera says the party’s officials have the power to fire Jumbe from the party.

At a rally Chakwera held on Sunday at Kanyenda primary school in Nkhotakota, central region senior party officials took turns to castigate Jumbe saying they are no longer interested to work with him regarding party affairs.

Regional chairman for lake-shore Augustine Chidzanja lambasted Jumbe saying he has no capabilities of heading Malawi Congress Party.

Felix Jumbe faces the axe.

“Sitimuopa! Constituency ikumukanika kuyendetsa. Akukanika kuchita chitukutuko. Ku chipani tsono u president angakwanitse kuyendetsa? [We are not afraid of him! He has failed to run and develop his constituency. Therefore, would he afford to lead a party?],” he said.

The party is accusing the embattled former Farmers Union of Malawi [FUM] president of playing ‘double standards’ in the party.

Jumbe who is also the Parliamentary committee chairman on Agriculture has of late been featured on MBC TV’s Chindunji talk show chiding the party’s leadership.

But asked to speak on the matter, Chakwera told reporters after the rally that central region lakeshore shore officials of the party will decide whether to keep or kick him out of the party.

“I think they would be the best persons to explain this and see what they want to do because I am a host here. I did not come here to talk about anybody else so you better ask the regional people about that,” Chakwera said.

Spokesperson for central region lakeshore committee Peter Mazizi asked Jumbe to come out in the open and explain his membership in the main opposition party.

Said Mazizi: “Everybody is feeling sorry for Honourable Jumbe because MCP is a family. So being one us, we thought we would have been doing the same things.

“Now that he is doing the opposite, that is why people are coming out asking him whether to keep him in the party or not. So the best is that he better resign from the party so that he should be a free man.”

Mazizi further likened Jumbe to a ‘rotten egg’ that needs to be thrown out of the party.

“If you are holding a rotten cake or egg in your hand and you eat it, what it means is that you are inviting more diseases. The best way is to throw it away,” he added.

When contacted to speak on the issue, Jumbe did not answer his phone.

Among the party’s senior members conspicuously missing at the rally included vice president Richard Msowoya, spokesperson Jessie Kabwila as well as honourable Felix Jumbe himself.

  5. There is lack of discipline in him cause if he is able to see problems why not talk within the party before going to MBC .He should go we agree to disagree.Jumbe should remember if you want to go fast go alone,if you want to go far go with others. Anzeru so inu nokha Ku MCP ko.go. inalipo before you and it will be there ask Chakuamba.

    • vuto tu ndi mentality yausiru kungoyamikirako boma akuti ndi wa dpp pompa ena anyozedwako kale akuti ndiwe wamzeru ndikuxindikira ukamatukwana boma basi kkkkkkl we’re building a dangerous generation amati every cloud has a silver lining

  10. ajumbe ndinkholokolo mu mcp he dont deserve to be mcp member kick him out munthu sulimbana ndi utsogoleli wachipani akufuna chani one president at one time

  11. Long overdue. This guy was supposed to be booted a long time ago. Kungoti Bambo Chakwera ali mtima wabwino. Good riddance. Let him go to DPP, we don’t care. We won’t miss him

  12. Thats the best MCP can do here coz Jumbe’s approach is detrimental to the survival of the party. Jumbe is already seriously flirting with the ruling DPP as such its retrogressive to think that he is in MCP for good motives, he has to be forced out. Jumbe is a pure deviant who easily gets enticed, he is a snake in the grass for MCP. Even if DPP can absorb him, he wont settle there either coz he lacks focus, he is in fact not leadership material! His sacking is long overdue and anybody against his sacking is a staunchy enemy of MCP!

    • KUTHA NGATI MA KATANI…. YOUR PARTY IS UNDEMOCRATIC, WATSALA KABWILA ETI?? NANGA MESA JUMBE AMANVANA NDI JESSIE??? KKKKKKK!! KOKOLIIIKOOOOO!!!

    • KUTHA NGATI MA KATANI…. YOUR PARTY IS UNDEMOCRATIC, WATSALA KABWILA ETI?? NANGA MESA JUMBE AMANVANA NDI JESSIE??? KKKKKKK!! KOKOLIIIKOOOOO!!!

    • Inu nanga WINIKO?kukana kudzuzdulidwa nanu.Kukanika kuwerengesa k577billion while most Malawians R Starving becoz of yur nepostic behaviou and greedy,Olombana ndi Chakwera akutaya nthawi

    • The truth is that the DPP is on the driving seat but there is nothing to show that they are improving the economy. They have been giving us lame excuses for sometime. APM even asked for 3 more years just to deal with hunger, is that not a sign of failure? For this economy, which is chiefly donor dependent, to be back on track, we still need the donors. Much as we can all be happy to be independent financially, we cant achieve that overnight, its a gradual process. Where is Zimbabwe now? Its a nation on paper but practically, its just a massive piece of land with nothing working. If we fail to accomodate donor demands, we will very soon join Zimbabwe. I feel the president has done very little on corruption especially handling of cashgate, as such donors cant be fooled to put their resources in such a leaking bucket with the bulk of serving cabinet ministers among those implicated. Malawi willsuffer until the president acts on cashgate with an iron fist.

    • forget about donors my friend malawi is now searching green pasture its not 3-4 years to reach the point. Don’t compare zimbabwe and malawi that is different issues. Mugabe chase white pple while malawi only donors frees aid. Muzakhala mukudalila wena mpaka liti this is malawi not Europe lets do wat malawi can do kukhala oziimila pawokha. munkanena inu nomwe kuti malawi sangayende without donner aid now its 2yrs tikuenda mwapendapenda. Mwachikhulupililo zizaenda ndipo iyi izakhala mbili yakale

    • Hahaha but weaning is a gradual process and if done out of immotion coz somebody demands u to put your house in order, the same donors have a way of bring us to our needs, examples are many on this. As things stand, there are no long-term plans to revample this dead economy.

    • kkkkkkkkk mcp ukangondiwaza esp ndikaganiza kuti inawina chisakho chomaliza 1965 pa 15 august amandiwaza kwambiri akamalimbana ndi dpp onse akupha achina a gadama ndi ena omwe anaponyedwa mu dam ya ng ‘ona anzanuso ndi a udf and pp ndiye omevetsa chisoni anzanu

  13. Thus why mcp /chakwera will never Rule malawi Never in malawi… Ithink even party officials enjoy being in opposition than being in gvt. There is no way Avery vibrant and strong leader like Jumbe can be sidelined in mcp when in actual sense he is probably the best broom mcp has ever had since 1994 when this cruel party left the leadeship mantle. My free advise is Tread carefully with Jumbe because mkutheka Saliyekha…..Have u ever wondered why UDF has not expelled Lucious Banda fromthe party despite his recent actions?????…Whenever someone is making noise look beyond him you will see anetwork of pple with similar reasoning but are hiding in party colours. To me Jumbe has not commited any seruous crime to amount such treatment…….. It also signals what so called verterans of the party are up to…. so Juliana Lunguzi, Chakhwantha,,,, and other new faces watchout there is always brighter future otherthan mcp….. This party is a reject. It will never change all because alipo omwe amazitenga eni kongeresi ndi amenenso akuchititsa kuti mcp kumwera ikhala ngati Tarmec wina akachitchula chipani chimenechi….. Ba pangati poti mzapamtundu…. panu. uko ku sentolo rijoni… kkkkkkk

    • Honestly without digging dip into what happened or z happening , Jumbe’s recent actions has to b condemned at all cost, if he z a vibrant member as u indicated he wouldn’t allow to b used by other party officials who only fight to discredit other parties ie going on MBCtv talking bad of his superials without according his superiors a chance to b heard which he knew its impossible . #HehasTobeDiscplined

    • Have u ever seen Winiko being interviewed on MBCtv? A reasonable person wouldnt go in public with matters concerning his/her family. Differences are alwez there but taking them to public aaaa! Jumbe ur dismissal z long overdue

    • Kamwendo from your comment i can see kut you dnt follow current affairs. Kodi ndi liti lomwe winiko amanyoza Dpp kumanena kuti akufuna kumupha.

    • As far as i know jumbe…..he Is arrogant & deserves dismissal.iwe Manyamula upange zako kummwera kwanuko .ife aMCP TIMAKHULUPILIRA DISCIPLINE……The dismissal of jumbe is part of the discipline we bealive in…..Four corner stones…..UNITY…LOYALTY…OBEDIENCE & DISCIPLINE

  14. Jumbe is a thorn in the flesh of MCP. Keeping him longer within the party ranks will mean more confusion in the party. If he thinks he is bigger than the party then he will be surprised in 2019 because he can not make it again to parliament. Mark my words.
