Lazarus Chakwera flops in Blantyre

Chakwera (C) has his decision to fire and suspend some officials rejected.

Dust is refusing to settle in the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) as on Tuesday the High Court granted two Malawi Congress Party (MCP) top members injunction restraining the party from suspending them.

The two are Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma and Dennis Nanthumba who got suspended from the party a few weeks ago.

Chidzanja Nkhoma was suspended by party president Lazarus Chakwera over accusations of dissent and for being connected to the botched plot to burn down MCP headquarters.

Nanthumba was also suspended due to their conflicting ideologies which do not go in tandem with the party’s rules. He was feared to be part of the plot to torch the party’s offices.

However, Chidzanja challenged the decision arguing she never applied to become an MCP member and Chakwera could not stop her from being one.

Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma: On Chakwera’s neck.

“We are very happy that we are back in the MCP, we will now be operating as MCP members,” said Chidzanja Nkhoma.

The party told Chidzanja Nkhoma to stop using party colours and regalia but now she can use the party materials.

This means the case will now be heard interparte, both lawyers of MCP and Chidzanja Nkhoma will battle it out in the court if the MCP lawyers applies to vacate the injunction.

Chidzanja Nkhoma has been openly accusing Chakwera of dictatorship style of leadership, of refusal to be criticised constructively, and of appointing his own loyalists to party positions.

The decisions also saw the firing of outspoken MP Felix Jumbe and the suspension of ten others including party spokesperson and Member Of Parliament  JessieKabwila and Joseph Njobvuyalema.

According to Chakwera, Jumbe was fired due to conducts of indiscipline within and outside the party.
