No MCP convention in sight:Msowoya, Kabwila stop party gathering

28

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Vice President Richard Msowoya, Secretary General Gustav Kaliwo and spokesperson Jessie Kabwila have obtained an injunction to stop the party from holding a convention scheduled for April.

The three together with Tony Kandiero and James Chatonda Kaunda have also restrained the party from suspending them or summoning them to a disciplinary meeting.

Unrelenting squabble in MCP.

In a court order dated March 12 that Malawi24 has seen, the High Court has ordered that the MCP convention must not happen unless the issue of Kaliwo and the other four has been acted upon or when an order from the High Court orders so.

“This order restrains you or any other persons from inviting the claimants to disciplinary inquiries and from suspending them and also from convening a convention of the party until trial of the action or until further order of the court,” reads part of the injunction which lists MCP president Lazarus Chakwera as one of the defendants.

The court has warned the MCP that disobeying the order is illegal since the defendants will have committed contempt of court and they will be liable to imprisonment, fined or seizure of assets.

In January, MCP National Executive Committee (NEC) resolved to suspend the five senior officials saying that they were bringing disagreements in the party.

    • Amos you can see yourself that this is not quarrel,because quarrel involves two sides.Have you seen the leadership side here?what is seen here is madness of Msowoya and his group,they wanted convention now they say no convention its really madness they deserve Zomba mental hospital

    • Everybody knows they were already expelled from the party,MCP has nothing to do with them so they can not decampain MCP

    • Lets wait and c if ur so called mcp will rule this country.i agree that malawi is on fire cos of this admistration but u can agree with me that people especially villagers will put this govt again in power than mcp that has got bad history towards malawianz.there is no any party now .we could have talk of udf if their leader was a leader but look what he is doing forgetting his role in his own party thats where dpp is clever.dpp knows that strongest party to compete with in 19ths election then dpp thought of giving the head the bread.look he cant swallow the loaf of bread.

  3. Nkhaniyi timvetsetse bwino. Kaliwo and colleagues are not against early convention. The MCP constitution is very clear about who should call for the convention. It’s not the president, but the Secretary General, who is Kaliwa himself. Chakwera has violated the provision of the constitution by calling for a convention. He doesn’t have those powers. If Chakwera is failing to abide by party constitution which the party itself prepared, will he be able to abide by the national constitution which was written by other people? He is simply a dictator. The court is not stupid to grant the injunction. Something is seriously wrong with dictator Chakwera. He thinks by being the president he can do anything, This is wrong and dangerous for democracy. It must be stopped before it’s too late. Bravo Kaliwo and the court for showing monster Chakwera his limits.

  4. MCP need a uniting leader not a dictator chakwera course he will steal ur victory in 2019. MCP VOTERS WAKE UP
