MCP Youths Criticize Chakwera Over Revolt Remarks,’We Will Not Join You In The Streets’
The group of youth calling themselves northern region Malawi Congress Party (MCP) youth league held a news conference in Mzuzu on Wednesday to accuse party president Lazarus Chakwera of creating anarchy and disorder by inciting Malawians to rise up against President Peter Mutharika’s administration.
Chakwera said that he would be forced to lead a mass protest against government, and threatened to call supporters onto the streets if President Mutharika will not meet the eight demands he has set as plan of action and that he immediately comes to Parliament in person to give a full report of the progress.
But speaking to reporters, the youth league members clad in party regalia challenged Chakwera that they will not join him on the streets on his protests.
Boardman Mwanyama who said he is deputy chairperson of MCP youth in the northen region, said the call for revolt is unacceptable.
“The youth will not accept to be used,” Mwanyama who had difficulties to mention the name Chakwera properly, said.
