Regional Chairmen from all the six regions of the Malawi Congress party (MCP) have come out from their cocoons, an action the nation has for so long been longing to. The party leaders have spoken and loud they have, for everyone who respects democratic values to hear and act upon.

In their unreserved words, the chairmen, who represents people from the glass root have talked of something that others would say is distancing themselves from the call of party convection as advanced by Gustave Kaliwo.

“These things all started when MCP called for regional and district elections but reached some climax when I disciplined the District Chairmen for having unconstitutional meetings,” Honourable Chilondora revealed.

The Honourable Chilondola, as his name rightly suggests, pushed some sense that it is only when light is called in action that darkness obtains its meaning, otherwise it is “the absence of light” that often times bring darkness.
Many have thought that the battles in MCP are against Dr. Chakwera but it is not. The battle is rather against the true democracy practiced in the mighty MCP according to reasons Honourable Chilondola and Honouble Simbi have laid.

And it appears many people are now sensing what is going on as vindicated by a friend who said it is interesting that Kaliwo wants to blame someone just because the MCP is functioning with proper structures, or because the leadership is following the constitution and standing up the party and its ideologies of serving the nation without fear or favour.

“The Nanthumba that Kaliwo are having hang overs of defeat. They thought they have a muscle in the Southern region and that MCP cannot do without them, but alas, they are disappointed that MCP is getting big and poplar in the South each day.
“I defeated him in the Southern region elections and he has no mandate. The people who voted for me in the South are behind the MCP and its leadership steered by Dr. Chakwera and are happy for their party,” said Honourable Simbi.

Now one wonders why DPP is agitating for MCP replacing its DCs and MBC having something to air and beam. But why is MBC not ashamed of been used? Anyway, except for those who know that one of those DC’s is Nanthumba who has been impostering like an MCP member.

The race in the South has been one hard journey for MCP, and DPP believes that they have colonized the region hence every time MCP has tried to make a move, something fishy happens.

“A Lawyer who cannot follow the law is something else. I think Kaliwo got that post by mistake and whether by mistake or what, WE DONT WANT KALIWO AS A SECRETARY GENERAL,” Hon Soko.

But how about for those who were misled and now want to come back to a democratic party. Well, I can’t put it any better than Hon Mlomo’s Hammer: “I ONCE WAS LOST, MISINFORMED THEN FOLLOWED KALIWO. NOW AM BACK AND WARNING YOU, DON’T TRY TO FOLLOW THEM. ITS NOT WORTH IT”.

“Munthu wanzeru azibvomeraza that I once was a leader, but if people did not vote for me then it is time to follow the new leader,” says Mlomo, further hitting the nail even harder: “Kaliwo is not a real politician. But those who are politicians should know that Dr. Chakwera has an open door policy, so they can come back before it is too late”.
