War within: MCP officials want John Tembo back as party leader

Lazarus Chakwera

Chakwera ‘not wanted’.

A group of suspended Malawi Congress Party (MCP) regional and district chairpersons who on Monday had their case against party president Lazarus Chakwera dismissed by the courts say they will fight hard to make sure John Tembo comes back as MCP president.

The chairpersons have been accusing Chakwera of failing to run the party citing the numerous squabbles that are happening in the party. The chairmen also took the MCP to court to protest Chakwera’s decision to make changes in the MCP national executive committee (NEC).

But on Monday Judge Charles Mkandawire dismissed the case because lawyers for the chairpersons arrived fifteen minutes late for the court session.

But after the dismissal of the case, the district and regional chairpersons said they will continue pushing for change in party leadership in order to have Tembo back.

John Tembo

John Tembo; Wanted again.

Former MCP regional chairman for the south, Mr Nanthumba said they want Tembo back because during his time there was peace and he run the party as a unit.

His remarks were echoed by Chairperson for Dedza Lakeshore district Lackson Khamalatha who called on Chakwera to resign.

“We are told that the chairmen who voted Chakwera during the convention are old and not fit then we are saying that Chakwera was also illegally voted into the office, we are therefore asking Chakwera to give back the position to Tembo so that we can start afresh,” said Khamalatha.

The chairpersons also expressed dissatisfaction over the way the court handled the case.

Chairman Hassan Mwale from Ntchisi said there is need for equal justice on the case in the sense that he feels the court is favouring the party.

”We are baffled that the case has been dismissed and I think the court is favouring the party,” said Mwale.

Following the dismissal of the case, MCP announced that it will conduct regional and district elections in order to have new chairpersons.

  7. Hello my name is john I want to give a testimony about my HIV virus that was cured by a great spell caster. Since last 4years I have being a HIV AID patient. I never think I will live long again and am so grateful to Dr sule who help me cured my HIV AIDS last 3 weeks. I was in a great pain so I told one of my best friends; he told me that there is a great spell caster that can cure my VIRUS. I asked him if he had his contact, he gave me his contactl, I contacted him he talked to me and he perform the necessary things and sent it to me through corrier delivery company and deliverd to me at my place and he told me that after two weeks I should go for a test. Which I did, when the doctor told me that am now a HIV negative I couldn’t believe myself I went to see another doctor the result was still the same, I was human on planet earth, so I emailed him and thanked him. Please if you are having a similar problem please visit him/contact him via whatsapp +2348162447651

  8. Vuto ndiloti zoipa zonsezi moto wake akusongezera pansipansi ndi a DPP cholinga zipani za ku opposition zikhale zopanda mphavu but this z not gud at all

  9. So when they were dismissed what else do they need? They are stupid or what? If you loose a court case you appeal or when you know you can’t win you don’t. In this case my advice to those people disgrantled for that matter is to join DPP they will enjoy there because they don’t have a place in MCP

  11. Darkness can never overcome ligh
    t. Fantasy and reality are two very
    different. There’s no way a stolen
    thing can benefit anybody. The Ma
    lawi Congress Party never belong
    to the Central region people thoug
    h they’ve forced themselves to clin
    g to it under all odds. Accept that
    nobody in the Centre has an idea
    about the Malawi Congress Party
    other than their murder machiner
    y, the Malawi Criminals Party.
    How many times do these du
    mp people want to be told that Ka
    muzu or Tembo were not part of
    the original founders of the Malaw
    i Congress Party. Tembo became the kingpin after him and Kamuzu
    ensured all the founders were sile
    nced by murdering them. How do
    you think they can it right? When
    Ntaba left they called him names
    because the nyau culture made th
    em beasts meant to spend most of their time in grave.
    Maybe if I can give one indicati
    on that will remind the Centre as long as live that legacy will alway
    s be to those who create it. Let the
    m take a look at the 3 CCAP synod
    s in Malawi, Livingstonia, Nkhoma
    and Blantyre if they’re the same. Y
    ou find out that Nkhoma synod is
    not the same as Livingstonia and
    Blantyre. The 2 originate from Chu
    rch of Scotland whileas Nkhoma originates from the Dutch Reform
    ed church. You’ll further find out that they differ how the 2 and Nkhoma is ran.
    This is the same politically. Mal
    awi Congress Party as well as the
    first political movements are credi
    ted to the Northerners and Southe
    rners. John Chilembwe started the
    uprising and districts involved wer
    e Chiradzulo, Thyolo, Mulanje, Zom
    ba and Blantyre. Thereafter the Ny
    asaland African Congress was form
    ed in Mzimba by Levi Mumba and
    the South joined together with Chi
    ef Gomani in Ntcheu. Thereafter, in
    1800’s the MCP was formed by Ort
    on Chirwa from Nkhata-Bay assist
    ed by Henry Chipembere and othe
    rs from North, Ntcheu and South.
    Where were Kamuzu and Tembo?
    Tembo yielded power behind Kam
    uzu because of the relationship be
    tween Kamuzu and C. T. Kadzamir
    a.

  12. John tembo anampha Aroan Gadama sangawine koma eneyo nganganga pambuyo pa Lazarus Chakwera. Or mumu chose mu chipani azaimabe 2019 hoyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

  16. kkkkk cheap politics ,are they telling us that Tembo is the one influencing them?To my opinion is NO,let Tembo alone , we know who are behind you who are failed politicians.

Malawi is country whose progress can be ascertained to this theory 3 steps forward movement consecutively 8 steps backwards in phases!!!!

      Malawi.
