Follow party constitution, MCP advised

31

A political scientist in the country has advised the Malawi Congress Party’s (MCP) National Executive Committee (NEC) to follow the party’s constitution.

This is coming at a time when a faction led by MCP general secretary Gustave Kaliwo asked the party president Lazarus Chakwera to organize an early convention so that they elect a new leader as they have lost trust in the party’s leadership.

But one of the political scientists in the country, Wonderful Mkhutche, said the party’s constitution stipulates when the party president should be elected.

Wonderful Mkhutche says the MCP must follow its constitution.

“The party has a constitution which stipulates when party president will be elected. Following the constitution will be the best thing to do,” said Mkhutche.

He added that the whole thing is suspicious since Kaliwo and his group’s press briefing was shown on Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) which does not usually grant opposition politicians airtime.

He further said that the party is more important than the individual battles that have been happening in the party for the past two years.

According to Mkhutche, MCP has been a strong opposition party for the past two decades and it has exceptionally played that role.

“Malawi Congress Party now has a new leadership that has adapted the party to the political needs of its times,” he said.

He added that the party has gained the trust of the people hence it should therefore not squander this opportunity.

Mkhutche further advised the party to be united and its members to do away with individual differences and focus on building and preparing for 2019 general elections.

  1. DPPs are scared of MCP 2019 elections. Be strong MCP leaders.Let them plot any trick division of MCP but they will gain nothing.We are used up of this ruling that brings hard life status of citizens.Malawi is like a hell now.The very few,corruptionists who enjoy the living.

  2. Paliponse Pali Anthu Sipalephera Kusiyana Mau,komabe Izi Zirichomwechi,mcp Ndi Chakwera Amaikonda Kwambiri.Kaya Wina Afune Kapena Asafune.

  3. inu musaiwale kuti a Felix jumbe nawoso paja amajijirika kumaonetsa zitokotoko kuti adane ndi mr chakwera adpp akuwapopa pano mukuwavaso a jumbe ati ziiiii anachotsa chipani panoso adpp anamutayaso jumbeyo

  4. There has been alot of misunderstanding, we all know the issues of Jumbe, kabwira , that women camp and now of KALIWO. I think this leadership needs to sort this out since time is running out. Otherwise the party is in day dreaming.

  5. That faction of Gustav kaliwo is trully sponsord by dpp to cause divisions in mcp, but this wont work bcoz mcp supporters knows who is behind all this. They are wasting their money for nothing, even though its stolen money. Every press conference beamed on mbc radio and tv is organised by the devil himself.

  6. You are right Mkhutche, any politician featured on MBC radio/television must be in good books with DPP and it is clear that Kaliwo is a DPP plant in MCP. Is he not the same person who had written Chakera a long letter instead of simply meeting him face to face? Malawians should not be fooled, Kaliwo’s activities are not in support of MCP, they are for his personal benefit and not done in good faith!!!

  7. That’s true it’s really suspicious how Kaliwo and the same group of CHATINKHA be on mbc if they fail to show vice president so who is kaliwo . Kaliwo akumugwirisa ntchito a DPP koma alephera ndalama wadyazo azazibwenza or he will pay back by giving Dpp his life dpp sichipani chomasewera nacho.

  8. I agree with Mkuche bcoz Mcp ndiyokhayo muli mavuto kuti muziyitanitsa convetion. How assured is Kaliwo kuti akakapikisana iye akawina. Chakwera akumunenayo sakukakamira ndiye mudikire kaye inu mpata wopita pa Mbc tv anakupatsani ndani moti amenewo sangadzasokonezenso convention ndikutimiza bogus MCP members? Dpp at sirkuit

  9. Komatu mau a munthu wamkulu amakoma akagonera. Komanso pali mwambi oti muvi oyang’anila suchedwa kulowa m’maso . Ndipo mwambi wina umati kutsutsa galu nkukumba,ngati galu wanunkhiza kuti ku una uku kuli mbewa ndibwino kukumba ndi khusu kuti muone nzoonadi ngati ndi mbewa kapena ndi njoka kapena mbewa. My advice to MCP is go for the early elections and it will show who is the most liked leader.
