Am not joining any party, I am still in MCP – Jumbe
Months after being expelled from the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), Member of Parliament for Salima Central Felix Jumbe says he is still a member of the party.
Jumbe was shown the exit door from the party two months ago on allegations that he acting was against party rules.
However, Jumbe says he has no plan to join another party, claiming that though he got expelled from the party he is still a member of MCP and no one can expel him from the party.
“I am not joining another party, am still in MCP. They could have fired me at a convention because that is where true and official decisions are made,” said Jumbe.
He further wondered why people in the party are clapping hands for leaders who are contravening the party’s rules. Jumbe was expelled from MCP alongside Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma, Azam Mwale and former chairman for southern region Denis Nathumba.
The party also suspended party spokesperson Jessie Kabwila and lawmaker Joseph Njobvuyalema pending disciplinary hearing.
Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma together with 12 District Chairmen recently made headlines after calling for emergency convention to elect new party leader saying Lazarus Chakwera is the worst leader the party has ever hard.
