Big blow lands on Chakwera’s face: court reinstates fired members

63

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarous Chakwera has been knocked out after the High Court in Blantyre reinstated members he fired from the party.

Chakwera and the MCP National Executive Committee (NEC) booted out some MCP members including Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma, Dennis Nanthumbo and several district chairpersons for calling for a convention to elect a new party leader.

Lazarous Chakwera (C) wrangles happening under his watch.

But according to the court ruling, the decision was unlawful since the NEC does not have the power to dismiss any member from the MCP.

The court also ruled that it was against the MCP constitution for Chakwera to dissolve the party’s National Executive Committee.

This means that fired members Chidzanja Nkhoma, the district chairpersons, and Salima Central legislator Felix Jumbe as well as suspended party spokesperson Jessie Kabwila are now back as members of the party.

Reacting to the development, Chidzanja Nkhoma said she firmly stand together with other fired members against Chakwera’s decision to have them removed from their positions and expelled from the party.

Nkhoma added that she knew it was illegal and impossible to fire them, saying members of the party’s NEC members were appointed illegally in an act contrary to section 30 of the party’s constitution.

Meanwhile, Nkhoma has advised the party’s general secretary Gustave Kaliwo to call for a NEC meeting within seven days.

She also called on the MCP to hold a convention as a lasting solution to the party’s problems.

  12. I did said b4 that , Chakwera Lazaro he is really madman and Stupid ,he is really Dog’s shit ! How you can runaway from the God’s Congregation and follow up the political party issues ? Now what is happening at him is really God’s punishment he can’t let God down and follow up the political issues , he must putdown the political issues and go back to the church , and then God will forgive him otherwise he is gonna die like a dog .

    • David had all the reasons to scorn Saul but he did not, all what he said he could not kill the anointed one of God, though Dr Chakwera joined politics, he is still a man of God, msiyeni Ambuye yemweyo ndi amene angachite nawo abusawa chonde tisawanyoze chotere
