MCP under fire over Chilembwe Day conduct

122

Government has condemned the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) over the party’s conduct during Chilembwe Day celebrations in Chiradzulu.

It has been claimed that during the ceremony some MCP members started distributing party materials such as T-shirts, Zitenje as well as leaflets.

Governments’ spokesperson Nicholas Dausi said the act is barbaric and uncalled for as it has portrayed that the party does not respect the freedom fighter as well as Malawian culture.

Dausi: Blasts MCP followers for their conduct at Chilembwe day celebrations.

“Government is very concerned with the Malawi Congress Party’s conduct at the memorial ceremony for John Chilembwe who fought for Malawi’s freedom and it was shocking to see some MCP members distributing party materials such as leaflets, T-shirts which is uncalled for,” said Dausi.

He added that government believed that the MCP president Lazarus Chakwera who was a pastor would have known better than to politicise the ceremony.

According to Dausi, the MCP supporters’ conduct is against Malawian culture which requires people top respect such events.

“MCP has disrespected Chilembwe who fought for the nation and we wonder why they are in a hurry to take up power when time is still there for them to campaign for the presidency,” said Dausi.

Commenting on the issue, human rights activist Billy Banda said MCP should not have politicised the event.

“Politics is taking over every event in the country and it’s unfortunate and very sad that MCP distributed their party materials at the event,” Banda.

He added that there was nothing wrong for MCP to wear their party attire at the ceremony but the party erred by distributing the materials because the ceremony was not a political event but a national event.

He added that MCP’s conduct provoked the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) hence coexistence has been disturbed as the ceremony was a national event.

Malawi set aside January 15 to remember John Chilembwe who stood against colonialists.

  17. Chakwera has all the qualities of JZU & that’s why he was the only choice amongst all that had interest in MCP’s leadership. One would wonder what Malawi would be under Chakwera of which signs are clear of a repeat of the 1964-1994 Malawi. If he is so cunning while in Opposition, I do not see any Opposition surviving during his rule.

  18. MCP inu ife zankhondo zanuzo ayi coz tisamakhale ngati tili ku Mozambique koti tiziyenda ndi mimba ife ayi osavimeleza bwanji mukafuna mpikisano muzapange 2019 osati mutiphese ifetu ndi amphawi timavimeleza mtsogoleri yemwe akulamula …mukapitiliza iwe Chakwera mbuzi, nonsenu mbuzi masapota nonse mbuzi ….

  23. MCP or any opposition party can surely not do that in a dpp area and on such an important national function.
    And had they done it, the police could have arrested them by now. I doubt.

  24. koma mcp ikutionjeza heavy mpaka kuchititsa manyazi dpp yathu.ena alibe pabwino ndithu amzawo amagawa zibonga,mauta, zikwanje ndi mipaliro tsono iwowo a mcp angamagawe zovala zachipani why?uku ndi kudelera dpp ndithu tikumana 2019 ndipo ife a dpp sititopa kukagula chimanga ku zambia wina afune kaya asafune.

  28. By government you mean DPP, the party which wants to take us back to those days kuti tizikhala ndi matha, we all know kuti MCP ikukugwedezani ndipo ur are under pressure and are running out of ideas!

  29. Kodi kumwera kuli mcp pena pake inu adpp chitani manyazi tikudziwa zakuvutani nde mukufuna mupake aliyense chitedze chanucho ife zotipondetsa ai chaponda yemweyo

  30. So who was distributing zikwanje to DPP then? Between clothes and zikwanje, choyenera kuletsedwa ndi chiti? Especially kuti kunali pulezidenti kumeneko.

  31. I don’t believe MCP can stoop so low and start distribution of party materials at a function like this. DPP be honest with yourself. You like faking stories. Idiots.

  32. why only mcp while dpp was there wearing their kit. dpp was also distributing the same materials. so why mcp? think dpp was the first to politicise the function. unfairness.

  33. Who is saying John chilembwe is a freedom fighter? Plz stop deceiving people which freedom did he fought. Because as far as I know he is the reason Malawi is struggling today, seriously how can you chess white people who can develop your country I mean in 1915. What a stupid man. Infact he was not fighting for freedom of of the Malawian but he was fighting for his churches which git bunt by the white. Look at Zimbabwe, look at south Africa, that the same white they run away in Malawi they settled in zim some in RSA look how developed those countries are? Even if they can chess them now no worries they don’t need anything from them. For Malawi we will suffer forever but who to blame John chilembwe, so to me He is not a hero at all.

  34. I think this is failed journalism. You have just written what MBC TV presented yesterday. No attempt to contact the other side to hear their story. So what are we supposed to make of it.
