Msowoya Promises To Finish Off MCP In The North : Replace Me With Mia And Be Doomed
Malawi Congress Party Vice President Richard Msowoya, has strongly hinted that the whole structure of the party from the North will follow him out if Sidika Mia is accepted into the hierarchy.
Mia, who is considered a political powerhouse in the Shire Valley, told Zodiak radio few days ago that he intends to join MCP anytime soon.
His move to the country’s oldest party is being seen as a ploy by Lazarus Chakwera to pick him as running mate at the 2019 polls.
This has angered Msowoya who partnered Chakwera during the 2014 elections.
“Msowoya knows that Mia’s move is going to finish him completely. His political future hangs on these developments and he is not a happy man at all,” one of Msowoya’s sympathizers told this publication.
The Speaker of Parliament has told his followers in the Northern Region that they should get ready to quit MCP anytime soon. His likely next destination is the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
Msowoya is said to have not hidden his anger towards Chakwera for chancing Mia as runningmate in 2019.
The Speaker has been calling Chakwera all sorts of names like greedy creature, leadership mistake and, ungrateful manipulator.
MCP is currently sailing through troubled waters with divisions across the board. A majority of grassroots leadership wants Chakwera out for being a dictatorship and intolerant of diverse views.
