Blame game over DPP, MCP violence

33

The attacks between opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and the ruling Democratic Progress Party (DPP) have graduated to violent level with the two parties pointing fingers at one another over the John Chilembwe Day fracas.

The day, January 15, that was set aside to commemorate the country’s freedom fighter Chilembwe was turned to be a day for the youths from the two political parties to exchange blows.

The ruling DPP blames MCP for distributing party materials at the commemoration saying the development angered youths from the blue team.

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

Spokesperson for government Nicolas Dausi said the opposition party had no respect for the day by distributing party materials.

“I spoke to the regional governor to know what really happened and what I have been told is that the Malawi Congress Party was distributing party cloths and some stickers,” said Dausi.

However, MCP’s first deputy secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka blamed the ruling DPP for being violent at the commemoration that saw a security detail of MCP president Lazarus Chakwera being injured.

“We reported the matter to Blantyre police, just to inform them because we know that the police cannot take action and the guy was treated as an outpatient,” Mkaka.

Recently, MCP leader Chakwera and President Peter Mutharika who is also leader for DPP were involved in verbal attacks over socio-economic hiccups that have rocked the country.

  4. Dpp please you’re the ruling party and you’re stealing from government coffers every day, after you saw Mcp distribution of party stuff why wouldn’t you buy your own and distribute it to your supporters as well? Because im very sure Mcp was giving their supporters and they didn’t use government money to buy it so stop being a crybaby because you have a big task ahead of developing the country’s economy not fighting over trivial issues.

  5. They were supposed to commemorate the day on separate venues. And it is not a good idea for members to use their party symbols or Regalia’s. Remember Chilembwe was not a politician but a Pastor who was fighting against colonial rule.

  6. Chakwera’s visible signs of Dictatorship. If he can want to hijack a National event & turn it into his Party’s Campaign rally while in opposition, I don’t see him have respect of the Law or anybody once he’s President.

  7. A Malawi tikuyenera kusintha bus ndi ma drivers omwe mu 2019. Ngakhale kuti tizavotere MCP after 2weeks muzamva kuti Chaponda walowa mu mcp. Ndimomwe amapangira anthuwa

  8. A malawi tiyeni tipange zinthu za nzeru. This is the time we have to focus and come up with solutions on problems our country is facing. DPP, MCP whatever has no solutions, they are just fighting for nothing. Tiyeni tipange umodzi amalawi, ma cadet apatseni zochita kuti azikhala busy ndi ma business awo osati kumangopanga maphokoso zopanda ntchito. you can escot the president kogawa malata and iweyo osalandirapo malatawo, ukugonanso nyumba ya maudzu, whats the benefit. atsogoleri ganizirani achinyamatawa, thandizanani kupeza nzeru za dziko lathu, tsegulani ma university otsekedwawo. together we stand, put God first zandale patsogolo. zokangana muzizapanga 2019 pa ballot paper. Akamakutsatirani achinyamatawo sizoti you are the best, but they are looking for your pockets kuti nawo akapeze chakudya.
