Chakwera backs party’s verdict

2

Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera has backed the decision by the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) to fire and suspend some members over reports of indiscipline.

On Thursday, Chakwera announced that NEC has fired and suspended ten members following internal squabbles that have hit the party hard for a while. Among the axed members include Felix Jumbe who openly criticised Chakwera’s regime on state owned Malawi Broadcasting Station (MBC) for lacking leadership skills.

Other members such as Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma and Southern Region Chairperson Azam Mwale have faced the exit door for accusing Chakwera of diverting party resources to fund the construction of his K650 Million mansion in Lilongwe.

Reacting on the development, Chakwera has disclosed that the decision by NEC was aimed at bringing sanity in Malawi’s oldest party.

“There have been some elements of indiscipline in the party that’s bringing discomfort among members and the public at large, our National Executive Committee made resolutions to ensure that the party is on track and not off track,” said Chakwera.

He added that the decision was also aimed at strengthening democratic principles in the country.

However, some members have disclosed that they are still members of the party despite the boot by the NEC. One of the members Chidzanja Nkhoma disclosed that she is still carrying the MCP flagship arguing that it is her choice to be in the party.

  1. tembo took the party but never did we hear anything if this nature.
    does that mean tembo was a good Leader?
    No

    No; tembo silenced people, I don’t think he did this by doing the way Bakili cited.
    I just think he managed squabbles in a manner that Chakwera has so far failed.
    I Chakwera and his style of leadership is good though.
    Chakwera is also good maybe koma achokawo tisaname apa, its the dent so big hence the need of a good a cleam of a Panel Beater of which I doubt is Chakwera.
    2019 is just around the corner.
    MCP; are you ruling us(Malawi) or not?

  2. THIS DISGRUNTLED FACTION OF MCP IS SO DANGEROUS. IF LEFT IN OFFICE, IT WILL BRING BACK THE OLD MCP PRINCIPLES, WHICH WERE REKNOWNED FOR ITS CRUELITY. IT IS GOOD THEY HAVE BEEN AXED. WHY DID THEY PLOT ARSON? IF THEY ARE DOING THIS WHEN THEY ARE JUST A FACTION, WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THEY BECOME LEADERS OF THE COUNTRY. THEY WILL SURELY CAUSE A LOT OF HAVOC AND BLOODSHED JUST LIKE THE MCP OF THE PAST. BEING BORN MCP DOES NOT IMPLY YOU ARE IMMUNE TO ANY AXING IF YOU CONTRADICT THE PRINCIPLES OF THE PARTY. WELL DONE CHAKWERA. I AM A VILLAGER AND DO BELIEVE THAT MCP IS NOT A PERSONAL PARTY. THOSE THAT ARE SAYING THEY WERE BORN MCP SHOULD LEARN THAT THIS IS NOT A FAMILY PARTY. THEY SHOULD KNOW THAT THIS PARTY WAS FORMED BY ORTON CHIRWA WHILE KAMUZU WAS IN PRISON. A PERSON WHO WAS BORN A MALAWIAN IS NOT IMMUNE TO THE LAWS OF MALAWI. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD LEARN TO BEHAVE. MAYBE IT IS THE PLAN OF GOD THAT THERE SHOULD BE SUCH DIVISIONS SO THAT THE MOST EVIL ONES SHOULD BE AWAY FROM THE MANTLE. ANTHU AMENEWA NDI ANKHAZA.
