Malawi’s Main Opposition Party Hits At Tribalism

Written by Written By Blessings KANG’OMBE/ Capital Radio

The Leadership of the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is of the view that politics of regionalism and tribalism will not help the country but lead the nation to under development.

MCP president who is also leader of opposition in Parliament, Lazarus Chakwera made the call in Ntcheu during a political rally held over the weekend in the district.

Speaking to Capital FM, MCP president reminded those that are in authority to treat all Malawians equally regardless of political affiliation.

Chakwera stressed that the move is the only solution that will see the country flourish in development.

He added that it is worrisome to see that divisions among the citizenry due to hate speech despite all of us belonging to mother Malawi.

“Let me point out that we all belong to mother Malawi regardless of where we are coming from or political parties affiliated to.”

“It is high time that the citizenry benefits from all aspects of development hence making Malawi a better nation to all of us,” Chakwera explained.

The MCP president emphasised on the need for economic empowerment among farmers in the country.

He stated that it is high time our farmers realize profits from their produce by making sure that markets are available within the country.

“Our farmers produce a lot and are able to feed the nation so how come that we fail to sustain their produce by increasing markets for their produce locally?”

Earlier, MCP Regional Chairman for the Centre who is also law maker for Dedza North described a certain fraction of the party that is calling for a convention as misguided.

Patrick Chilondola disclosed that the move by Gustav Kaliwo who is the party’s Secretary General is aimed at bringing in confusion within the party.

On Saturday Kaliwo announced the party will hold a convention from the 7th to the 9th of July at a yet to be disclosed venue to resolve the internal squabbles that have plunged the party into chaos.

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 of the number of the district committees.

Kaliwo challenged that he has a backing of more than half of the party’s district committees to call for the convention and his move has a blessing of some of the executive committee members.
