The unveiling took place at Ngabu in Chikwawa where thousands of people ferried from as far as Kasungu,Lilongwe,Dedza and other parts of central region converged at the political rally.
“I am welcoming you in MCP. Together we will be stronger to build better Malawi beyond 2019,” said Chakwera.
In his address, Mia said Malawi has moved many steps backwards 53 years after independence.
He said the huge turnout meant MCP has been embraced in the Lower Shire.
Mia said MCP now becomes a national party with him joining it.
Sidik Mia has joined MCP at a time that the party has been rocked with internal squabbles.
