From Chakwantha, Njobvuyalema, Lunguzi, Vitus Dzoole Mwale and Lington Belekanyama To Leave MCP Too

According to Msowoya, Chakwantha  asked to be allocated a seat among independent legislators.

Chakwantha, a former chairperson of the Legal Affairs Committee, was elected in 2014 on an independent ticket but joined the opposition MCP a month after the polls.

“I have decided to revert to my earlier position as an independent MP, people who sent me to the August House will understand,’’ said Chakwantha.

The young legislator said he would give more details at a later date.

His  decision comes just over a month after the party held its convention and a year before the 2019 tripartite Elections and reports that there more cracks in the party.

Nyasa Times understands that more veteran MCP legislators are disenfranchised with the leadership and would want to break ranks with the party.

The legislators  include the Speaker Msowoya, Joseph  Njobvuyalema, Jessie Kabwila, Vitus Dzoole Mwale and Lington Belekanyama.
