Kaliwo is not a legitimate member of MCP

A Malawi Congress Party (MCP) member has said people pushing for an early convention in the party are not legitimate members of the party.

A faction of the MCP led by general secretary Gustave Kaliwo announced last week that the party will hold a convention in July but the party brushed aside the declaration.

However, Joseph Gibson who wants to stand as MCP candidate for Blantyre City Central constituency in 2019 has condemned Kaliwo saying any structure or person that does not fall under or subscribe to the leadership of this new MCP is not a legitimate member.

Lazarus Chakwera

Gustave Kaliwo: Disowned by the MCP.

“There is a difference between airing contrary views and seeking to prematurely remove a sitting party president simply because you don’t agree with his leadership style.

“Any legitimate member who entangles themselves, or attempts to do so, with any grouping that seeks to disassociate themselves from a rightfully elected party president and his National Executive Committee (NEC) is pretty much disassociating themselves from the party,” said Gibson.

He added that the MCP presidency was sealed by way of national convention in 2013 and there is no way an early presidential primary election can be held.

Gibson said MCP members acknowledge Dr Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera as the current president of the party who has the mandate to tell party members what to do.

“There is only one Malawi Congress Party, the one that believes in a better and prosperous Malawi, the one that acknowledges a painful past but forges towards a brighter future, the one that ended British rule over Malawi and ushered democracy without political wrangles,” he said.

He claimed that he was speaking on behalf of many young MCP members in the country who have had enough of the actions of a handful of confusionists in their party.

“We will not allow a few disgruntled leaders who no longer hold or are unable to properly operate within their offices deter us from the effort of growing our following by creating a scenario that creates a belief that MCP is divided,” added the shadow MP.

He finally advised Kaliwo and those standing with him to focus on addressing national developmental issues and broadening the membership of the party than being the main focus of the operations of a secretary general.

  1. We need such kind of people who aim at building the mighty MCP(Next Ruling party in 20019). a Kalio kumapusitsigwa ndi DPP kuti muononge chipani tele. Ambuye akukhudzeni kuti mudziwe choonadi ndikumapanga chilungamo.

  2. So, to this member’s understanding is that the “Secretary General” (SG) of the Party, who is miles away above him is not a legitimate member?.

  3. Advicing mcp is the same as waiting to get water from a rock. Awa amayendela ‘tinkatele’ palibe wina angatiuze nzeru no wonder its being difficult for it to be reformed. Be a reformed party with reformed people at the top, koma mukapitiliza za uja puludzu jzu, ngati izi mukuchitazi, zoti kachipani kungokakamila pa central region, forget about the presidency. Advice to Sidik Mia, nzako ayamba kunkumba uyu kuti anangoponyeledwa u SG ndipo is not a legitimate member, nawenso uzaziona ndi kampando akufuna akuponyeleko, later on adzakutaya ngati a used condom, watch out suuyu Kaliwo amaombeledwa mmanja uja?

  5. MCP members remember you are killing your own party and those people fighting for convention u have received temporary money from the other side but remember those benefits are temporary as I had already said, The best way you can do ask the leadership of your party sit down and discuss costractive issues other wise u will keep on doing convection

    • We have no issues to solve at our party man everything is okey only that some are there to satisfy their needs of destroying our chakwera inorder to take over the leadership of the party

    • Bwana chimbalanga if You Realise that in your party they is no wrangles then this leadership of today should not allow to call for conversion because if you do it will just show it’s weekness but also try to ignore these people who have received peanuts from the other side

  6. MCPndiyozimva zayokha nanjinso ndiyachigawo chapakati akufuna anthu onse akhale ochokera kuchigawo chapakati.Pamenepo ndipamene pasokonekere zinthu

  7. then who is a legitimate member? how come was he appointed SG if he is not legitimate member? is it the party’s culture to call everyone who brings an idea of how the party can be run? MCP leadership should play your cards carefully otherwise your hole is getting deeper & deeper!! my views!!!!!

  8. iyaa! kodi iweyo chakwera wabwela liti ku chipaniku? uzikhala ukusokoneza malamulo ndi ndondomeko zachipani,ukuesa ngati kulibe ozindikira eti? ambiri akudziwa zoti malamulo ndi ndondomeko(mfundo) zoyendetsera chipani zasokonekera ndipo(anthu/mamembala) akufuna zinthu zikozedweso/zilongosoke kudzera pa koveshon,ndipo koveshon ndi yomwe isinthe ndi kukoza zose kuti zikhale bwino kusiyana ndi momwe zililimu.lorani koveshon ichitike ngati mukufuna kuwina pa 2019 pa,kupanda kutero mukhalabe otsutsa mpaka kalekale!!!
