An emergency NEC meeting of the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) ended without the party managing to replace ex-secretary general Chris Daza who defected to the ruling Peoples’ Party, party spokesperson Jessie Kabwila has confirmed.
According to Kabwila, the party had very pressing issues to discuss than the replacement of the Secretary General. One of such issues being the preparations for the fundraising Tambala night to be held soon.
Kabwila further said that the party currently relies on the services of the deputy Secretary General who is acting like the Secretary General.
Critics have, however, slammed MCP saying it is impossible for the party to just claim that the issue of the replacement of a party SG is a simple issue and not pressing.
Malawi Congress Party lost its Secretary General, Chris Daza, who had for long been aspiring to be the President of the party. He defected to the ruling Peoples’ Party. Soon after his defection, he was made the Minister of Good Governance.
