Arson attack on MCP headquarters foiled

84

Police in Malawi’s capital city of Lilongwe are keeping in custody nine people over plan to set fire to Malawi Congress Party (MCP) headquarters.

According to central region police publicist, Ramsey Mshane, the nine – three men and six women – were arrested on Sunday after they had entered the premises in order to carry out the attack.

He said the attack was foiled after MCP received a tip from the general public that the suspects had planned to set the offices on ablaze.

Trouble brews in MCP.

However, the publicist refused to comment much on the development saying he will talk more when the police are over with investigations which they have launched.

According to information made available to this publication, out of the nine suspects five are said to be members of the party.

Commenting on the issue, the party’s deputy secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka said they received a tip from some well wishers that the suspects had that plan on Sunday and they alerted the police.

“Yes, it is true, on Sunday someone told us that there were such plans. They came in the afternoon with a bag of flour and some petrol.

“Now the matter is in the hands of the police so I can’t comment much and I cannot disclose the names of these suspects,” said Mkaka.

MCP is still experiencing in-house wrangles as some officials want the party leadership to call for a convention saying they have lost confidence in Lazarus Chakwera.

  4. muluzi tried to kill it but it never worked the party still stands, but my advice is if you want to kill the party first kill the people who always voted for it not the building structure

  5. YOU MEAN PETUO & HIS DPP GVT ARE BETTER THAN MCP OR PP? GUYS LETS WE STOP DAY DREAMING NOW AS PETER A WORST DICTOR MALAWI HAS EVER HAD. BY THE WAY WHERE WAS HE & WHAT PROPTED MALAWIANS TO VOTE FOR A STRANGER? AMENEYUTU AKUYENERA KUYAMBAPO KULONGEZA KATUNDU WAKE AS AKUTULUKAKO KU KAMUZU PALACE COME 2019.HE IS THE MASTER MINDER IN THE CONFUSIONS HAPPENING IN OUR OPOSITION PATIES NOW.

  6. Those guys behind disposal of Chakwera are a typical of Ngwazi era, they are refusing change. I wish and just stay with Peter than these selfish MCP people who cant accept change, and they are busy clinging to their old tricks. DPP is busy trying to feed hungry Malawians, busy constructing road networks across the country. We have to appreciate some of the things, otherwise God will continue punishing this nation. Long live Peter !

  8. Chakwera asationongere chipani. Katunduyo anamangidwa ndi kamuzu thru dolla zomwe anasonkhana anthu okonda chipani, nde zomaotcha h.quarters kamba ka ndale zanu nde zachambazo. Mcp is not chakwera and chakwera is not mcp. Mcp wl be there even after chakwera dies.

    • u seem like an idiot. hu told u chakwera is behind this madness? all along I mistakenly took u for an intellectual only to wittiness the dunderhead that is u.shame on u for lack of reason in ur verbal diarrhoea.

    • Chakwera is responsibe for all squabbles in mcp. First he fired & appointed ppo in nec wthout following procedure, then he moved kabwira and jumbe frm front seats to backbenches in parliament, he appointed menyani for a position that doesnt exist in mcp constitution. Chakwera is judas. Mcp wont rule this country with such dictatorship
