War within: Chakwera under pressure to organise convention

69

Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leader Lazarus Chakwera is facing fresh calls to organise a convention as wrangles continue in the party.

Members of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) have urged the MCP president to call for an early convention so that they should vote for a new leader.

Gustave Kaliwo: Wants Chakwera out

MCP Secretary General Gustave Kaliwo, Deputy Secretary General James Chatonda Kaunda and other high ranking party officials have argued that the convention will solve the differences within the party.

Speaking at a press briefing held at Grace Bandawe Conference Centre in Blantyre on Saturday, the MCP members demanded that the convention must be scheduled in July.

Kaliwo said the meeting will be funded by well-wishers.

However, MCP’s acting spokesperson Eisenhower Mkaka has dismissed the calls arguing that the party is to have a convention later.

Mkaka further faulted Kaliwo for calling for the meeting without consulting other members of the MCP NEC.

MCP has been experiencing internal political shakeups as some members have been expressing dismay over the leadership of Chakwera.

The members accuse Chakwera of being a dictator.

  6. Chakwera’s true colors are on full display. During the campaign he promised to promote democratic values while chastising others. But now we know he does not have a democratic bone in his body, and in fact, he is a thief to the core, a hell-dweller, and a hypocrite! This plaster- saint deserves no place in the politics of Malawi. Resign you false prophet!
