Chakwera Forcing Msowoya To Resign As MCP VP:Enjoy Speaker-ship Retirement After 2019
Cracks in opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) continues to emerge each passing day with a new development that MCP President Lazarus Chakwera, is pressurizing the current MCP Vice President to resign from his post, we have the details.
According to informants close to Msowoya who is also speaker of parliament, the move by Chakwera to force him resign from the post is to pave way for Sidik Mia, who has been eye marked as the running mate for Chakwera in 2019 elections.
“Hon.Msowoya, you are one of the few politicians i respect, as the leader of Malawi Congress Party, I am of the view that you must resign before the MCP convention and 2019 elections,by doing so, you will have enough time to enjoy your speaker-ship retirement package and you will retire a great respected man in the Malawian political circles.”Chakwera told Msowoya.
There has been confusions in MCP since Sidik Mia joined the party with 2019 running mate ambitions.This has widened the gaps which were already there in MCP, Chakwera has so far addressed two political rallies with Sidik Mia in the absence of Richard Msowoya.
MCP believes that Mia will give them the necessary votes it needs to kick DPP out of power in 2019 but political experts have laughed off saying Mia failed to bring those votes to Joyce Banda who came third in the last elections, and that there is nothing new MCP is doing now which they never did before.
