In a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary Maurice Munthari, MCP says since the address by Chilima touched on matters on matters related to the substance and sustainability of the Tonse Alliance, the party will follow the alliance’s agreed guidelines for addressing such matters.

The statement reads” Meanwhile, from where we stand, the Malawi Congress Party does not have, in its possession, any document that stipulates of or points to the sharing of terms between Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera and Dr. Saulos Claus Chilima.

” In any case, as a law abiding party, we will comply with the dedicates of the supreme laws of the land which our Republican Constitution.”

The party further says it will accordingly engage all Tonse Alliance Partners to ensure such matters are tabled at the next meeting of the partners.

“It is our hope that during that meeting, a common position on the resolutions reached collectively will be communicated to the public in the interest of advancing transparency, respecting the spirit of shared responsibility in which the Tonse Alliance was formed, and upholding our promise to keep the alliance focused on serving Malawians without regard to political interests,” further reads the statement.

Meanwhile, MCP says it reaffirms its commitment to the Alliance and the values and objectives upon which it was founded and as already stated in the public statement issued by all alliance partners on June 24, 2022.
