Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera has come out of his cocoon and comment on the squabbles rocking the party by urging some top officials to stop fighting each other ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Recently the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) welcomed in the Party well-known businessman Muhammad Sidik Mia of Chikwawa.
The coming in of Mia into the Party has caused division because of the remarks he uttered when he was being welcomed in the Party.
Mia is quoted to have described MCPâs Vice President Richard Msowoya as a âlebwedelebwedeâ man adding that he has joined the party to grab position of such people.
But writing on his official facebook page, Chakwera urged top officials concentrate on the 2019 polls.
âLet us please stay the course of revitalizing, rebuilding, and rebranding the Party. A democratic dispensation demands a level of discourse and candid conversations that does not demean anyone. Do not be distracted. Focus on the big picture.
âWe are marching on to victory, all of us together, whether those who have stayed in the party for 50 years or those who re-joined the party 5 days ago. We are all on the same team. The victory we seek is a collective one that requires input from everyone. The victory we seek is a better and prosperous country for all Malawians. This is more important than any personal victories we seek over others in the party,â wrote Chakwera.
He added: âOur real enemies are corruption, poverty, tribalism, exploitation, and subsistent thinking. Let us not fight against each other, but for each other’s place in the Party. Let us fend for Malawi and each other. Let us stay the course, leaving no one behind.â
