MCP infightings: Officials summoned in court

The Lilongwe High Court on Thursday summoned opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) General Secretary Gustave Kaliwo and other officials to give evidence on the stand against 2015’s National Executive Committee (Nec) reshuffle.

In August 2015, MCP has reshuffled its NEC, somthing which had not gone well with some district council leaders who argue that the act was illegal.

The district leaders had stood against the reshuffle and among other things say the do not recognize the posts held by Kaliwo.

Led by Neno district chairperson Patrick Chilondola, Osbrone Ntchela, Peter Simbi, Kelvin Msukwa, Augustine Chidzanja and Harry Mchilima the chairperson had their preliminary objection to the reshuffle withdrawn by the MCP executive.

The leaders had initially written the party to hold an emergency convention something which also hit the wall.

At the moment, the case is being heard by  Judge Charles Mkandawire.

This comes as unrests within the party fail to cease.

Recently, nine MCP members over a foiled plan to set fire the party’s headquatres in Lilongwe.

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.

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.

At the August 2015 convention, former cabinet ministers in Joyce Banda administration Dr Cornelius Mwalwanda and Eunice Makangala were appointed on some top positions.

Mwalwanda is appointed second deputy director of economic planning and Makangala is second deputy of political affairs.

Among other posts, Former National Assembly speaker Louis Chimango replaced Lewis Chakhwantha as the party’s legal advisor.

Chakhwantha became the party’s director of youth.
