Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Spokesperson Jessie Kabwila has described the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Government as a ‘midnight Government’.
Kabwira said this when she was responding to the media on the reason why the Party President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera shunned the luncheon held by President Peter Mutharika in honour of all Presidential candidates that took part in the May 20 tripartite election.
In her speech, Kabwila said her party followers did not expect the party President to lunch with President Mutharika following events that marred the May 20 tripartite election.
She also said the invitation reached the party very late and it was informal.
“The reason why MCP President did not attend the luncheon its because the invitation came very late. apparently the OPC called late at night.
“We do understand the DPP Government seems to be the Midnight government, their results came late at night and they were sworn in at night. It looks like they don’t know how to work during the day time”, said Kabwila.
She said the Party has not forgotten that the DPP Government rigged the election.
“Attending the luncheon with the President it’s the same as someone get a wife from you and he invite you to admire the house they own”, added Kabwila.
On his Part, Chakwera said he sent an apology to the President saying he was committed to other meetings.
