Apart from indorsing Mia as a running mate for MCP President Dr. Lazurus Chakwera, the Party’s NEC meeting is also planning to fire its Secretary General (SG) Gustavo Kaliwo, Publicity Secretary Jessie Kabwira, and others.

The NEC meeting is being described as illegal, due to absence of its SG Kaliwo, who in consultation with the Party President calls for such a forum to discuss serious Party issues.

The Maravi Post is reliably informed that Simbi Phiri of Kanto Construction Limited, the Party’s main financier, is behind the meeting to decide on all the members that are advocating for ?July 7, 2017 emergency convention.


Other reports reaching the Maravi Post prior to the MCP NEC meeting, disclosed that the Party’s Vice President Richard Msowoya, is not taking part of the meeting.


The Party’s NEC meeting is coming amid continued wrangles for the call of the convention to resolve some critical issues affecting the oldest party ahead of 2019 elections.
