Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr Lazarus Chakwera has hailed Malawi President Arthur Peter Mutharika over the October 17 by-elections.

Speaking after his party scooped 5 seats of 6 in the elections, Chakwera thanked Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) under Jane Ansah SC for the job well done and President Mutharika’s government for funding the elections.

“I wish to thank Malawi Electoral Commission, under able of leadership of Justice Jane Ansah SC and her Commissioners, for organising a credible and commendable election.

“By extension, I also thank His Excellency Arthur Peter Mutharika for honoring our repeated calls for his government to furnish the electoral body with the funding necessary to fulfil this constitutional requirement in a manner that all Malawians can be proud of,” Chakwera said.

  2. Can someone with briliant brain like mine see this!

    October 17 by elections are for DPP to win 2019 elections.

    Going into 2014 general elections statistics, where we only managed to get 20% of votes in the CENTRAL, now we have managed to get over 35% of votes in the same region in the jst ended by elections.

    This clearly asures us dat come 2019 we are winning again.

    MCP cant see this but they are busy juvilliating instead of geting worried that DPP iz geting momentum in their territory

  3. yuh dont nuh politics jah people…politics are politricks…pure mislead…..politrics and relitricks are one only the wise will understand this shit hypnosis…stay a woke manyasa….akyerdier kukhola say so…bless up mamaland

  4. That’s what it called politics. Viewers all over the world I would like to tell you this ,these political leaders can just separate us while themselves are eating on the same plate so work up and open your eyes and see

  5. It shows that 2019 is for lazarours chakwera yes people of Malawi trying to have good leader items good accounter bility and effectiveness provided among people

  6. Don’t be very much excited, if the players featured were not natural right back or left back they will find good replacement, so mind u MCP this is like a game of football

  7. Msungama, Sitolo and Gwengwe have less than 20 months as M.P’s. Precisely 17 months. And with the assumption that Chakwera is celebrating about, we would see if these guys would sail through in 2019. You see, Chakwera hasn’t proven anything to the people other than clinging to ethnicity if I may be allowed to use that word. He is only hanging by the ethnicity political thread that if snapped, would drop him off in the gullies. Times are coming when people will see greed that will come in in the aftermath of MCP in power. These people will bring archaic type of leadership because they haven’t changed their philosophies. Leadership has a bit changed yes, but it’s only ” your body is Esau but your voice is that of Jacob.” That’s MCP you see right now. Malawians need to be very careful. I see reverend, pastor, bishop, in Chakwera and not a leader who will redeem Malawians out of poverty!

    • Can you just give me three reasons why DPP has failed miserably this time around? I feel DPP detached itself from Malawi. Its leaders are not living in the Malawi where you and me are living. If you follow politics as I do Bakili was in deep shit sometime but as a leader he came down with the people and inspired confidence in all people. People felt our president amamva mavuto athu ndipo alinafe. Fastfoward what are we seeing? HE is living in fools paradise where he is surrounded by advisors whose only job is to ensure that they are on payroll and the President is not aware of happenings on the ground. Are you sure you can trust campaign issues in the hands of Chaponda? You aint seen nothing yet

  12. Dr Chakwera has done very well to acknowledge credible elections. This was indeed work well done by Dr Ansah and His Excellency the president. Please we also need to have votes counted on the spot in 2019. After voting we will go home come back in the evening to witness the counting process. Then tarrying. Results will be announced and displayed in large print…..Dr Jane Ansah, I will pray for you day and night. May God bless you! Well done.

  13. Chitsiru cha munthu,, so if mcp wins then elections are free and fare but if it looses its arigged election… kk nalumbapala uyu amandinyasa.

    My friend, nsanje lalanje it was amistake of DPP. They fielded acandidate with no root touch. Some gurus imposed her on the pple. Yes mcp played their cards well but nsanje lalanje pple were voting for Sitolo as aperson not Mcp as aparty.,, in Blantyre ndirande the same story repeated with 900 votes this cannoy represent voice of the whole Blantyre never!
