MCP supporters to leave party

61

One of the country’s political experts Mustafa Hussein has warned the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) that it is at risk of losing many members due to internal wrangles.

Hussein was reacting to the current MCP wrangle in which top members of the party have called for a convention without knowledge of the party’s leader.

The grouping led by Secretary General Gustave Kaliwo has called for an emergency convention slated for July this year aiming at ousting the party’s president Lazarus Chakwera.

Lazarus Chakwera

Gustave Kaliwo: Wants an early convention.

Kaliwo on Saturday told the media in Blantyre that due to growing concerns by party chairpersons across the country and with the backing of the party’s constitution, it was necessary to call for the convention set for July 7th to July 9th at a yet to be disclosed venue to resolve the internal squabbles that have plunged the party into a chaotic state.

However, Chakwera has insisted that the party will not hold a convention soon saying he is the one in charge of everything in the party.

 

But according to the political expert, the development has shown total disagreement in the party and will lead to mass exodus.

“This is telling us that the party has a lot of problems which need to be addressed seriously because some of the members have lost their trust with the leadership. Am saying so because it is impossible that a group of people can organize a convention without the knowledge of the president.

“This could seriously affect them in the coming 2019 elections. If they want to do better, they need to end the wrangles earlier,” said Hussein.

Kaliwo is accusing Chakwera of snubbing his calls for a face to face meeting to resolve some of the issues that have been making rounds in the media about the party’s leadership.

According to Article 40 of the MCP constitution, an emergency convention can only be called if the party’s national executive committee resolves by two thirds of its membership, or at the request of half the number of the district committees.

  1. Koditu oloko MCP itatani koma mmmm amwene singawine inapha miyoyo ya anthu ambiri ndipo mulungu sangalore coz minzimu inakwiya Allah anakwiya ndi Chakwera kuthawa Nkhosa. Ifetu zomazayenda wa uyouyo mmmmm tinaiwala.

  2. Inu osadabwa!,munthu oti amatumikira mulungu ndikusiya kuyamba zachikunja mukuona ngati zingayende?.Mcp ngati sikomzedwanso muiwale zozalamulanso dzikoli.Pano ife a Malawi chomwe tikufuna ndi mgwilizano wa atsogoleri ndikupanga chipani chimodzi.Tonse ndi amalawi inunso atsogoleri ndi amalawi.Apo ayi khaya ngati zitazatheke kulichotsa boma limeneli,koma ine ndiye ndakaika.

  3. Malawians are looking for a party with political acumen sufficient enough to oust the purported mighty Dpp in 2019.But MCP is lacking in this acumen.MCP is not inspiring confidence.When shall these internal squables end?MCP should get their act together before they indeed lose supporters!

  4. Chakwera ali ndi tsoka chifukwa anathawa kutumikila Hehova, Namalenga, Mulungu Atate kufuna kwambiri za Mdziko ndi chuma cha pansi pano. Waiwala zonse zomwe amalalika chifukwa chofuna ulemelero wa dziko la pansi. Ndinenetsa pano kuti Chakwera adzafa infa yowawa chifukwa chokana kumikila mwini munda. Apa zangoyamba muzionziona kutsogoloku

  5. A Mustapha, mukuti chani kodi? Anthuwo akachoka mu MCP azipita kuti? Pakali pano the only hope for Malawians is the MCP. Kodi ndi angati achoka mu DPP chifukwa cha nkhani ya katangale pa chimanga? Nanga apita kuti if not MCP? Muzadzidzimukatu inu 2019 sure!!!!! Tiye nazoni….. Ine anga maso…..

  6. Precisely!!! I support MCP but i don’t tolerate stuff of that kind. Being a supporter of a particular party does not mean you should not point out what is going WRONG within. What is happening now in our camp is INSANE and has to stop. Otherwise we are weakening the party and digging our own grave.

  7. Those who are leaving the Mcp are welcome to do so and even those who want to leave today or tomorrow they are also most welcome.We don’t count mouse body and tails separately we better have people who wish their Malawi good progressive.Those fickle members are being coaxed by dpp so as to weaken Malawi congress as the only hopeful party to lead Malawians to the bitternes.In Dpp there full of selfish greedy bastard thieves they are only trying so hard to regain power in the coming general elections so that can keep on monopolying Malawi’s economy and giving people the left overs.Ofuna kuchoka achoke koma nkhondoyi siyaChakwera the time is coming when dpp will know that the real people wanted change and Has changed!

  8. hahahahaha we r not leaving MCP because we all know that this squambles r being brought in by the oppenent. MCP under the robust leadership is the hope of Malawi as whole.

  9. MCP would have dead long time ago when Bingu was popular. Many heavyweighs left the party, the likes of kete Kainja, Ted Kalebe, Dr H Ntaba, Binton kutsaira, Beston Majoni, the prodigal son Sosten Gwengwe, Kalazi mbewe, Abel Kayembe, Nicholus Dausi and many more. These people left the MCP but the party is there, people on the ground love the party so much. The chalenges MCP is facing can be solved easly, just few confusionists are doing this under the influence of other forces. The DPP is suviving because it is in power but if it can stay in oppositon for only five years it can die a natural death. This is a family party, MCP is a nationa party, we have seen how another family party by the name UDF which is now on the verge of extinction, it is swallowed as of now. MCP under Chakwera is doing fine, it is we the people on the ground do vote, not the so called few individuals that are making usless noises

  10. kwamunthu osazindikira zimene zikuchitika akhoza kutero koma maplan a dpp akufuna asokoneze zipani zonse kuti chawo chikhale champhamvu, eg, udf pp amaliza pano akufuna mcp koma simungaithe kafunseni tembo akakuuzani sitikukhulupilirani adpp chifukwa ndinu mukuyambitsa

  11. Osintha sintha zipani ngati malayawa ndi amene achoka mchipani, osati genuine member of MCP, ngati anakanika ku choka nthawi ya JOHN TEMBO, ndiye akachoke pano???! Ayi poti timangoti aliyense ali ndi ufulu wopereka maganizo ake!!!

  12. I fear for the convention to come. Usually people who qualify to vote during party convention are not masses making noise on social media. They are rather the area & district committee executives, who presently seem to be siding with the anti Chakwera Team. Chakwere must be careful. Am not MCP but i see disaster coming. (just for an example, the case of Chalamanda as the major of blantyre, almost everybody wanted him to continue but the those mandated to vote had a different opinion).

  13. Amene amadziwa za mcp sangachoke koma amene amadzaona za chipani angachoke mcp 2019 boma la anthu otumikila mulungu osati asatanic awa ali pa ngwirizano osadziwikawa

  14. MCP inapita ndi Ngwazi zaka 31 kulamula panopa pazatenga chinthawi chachikulu kuti izalamulenso.Koma chizikhala chipani chotsutsa basi osatheka kulamula.Ngati ku South ndi MP yemwe kulibeko even Councillor ndiye chingazalamule ndakayika

  15. That’s a killer assumption. MCP true supporters know their true leaders of the party and it’s their time when they will now strongly support it.
