Some concerned Malawi Congress Party (MC) members have for the third time written President Lazarus Chakwera, who is also the party’s leader, now demanding that he calls for a National Executive Committee meeting within 14 days.
In a letter we have seen, dated 26th November 2021, the members have also repeated their call for Chakwera to fire Secretary to the President and Cabinet Zanga-Zanga Chikhosi, State House Director of Communications Sean Kampondeni and State House Chief of Staff Prince Kapondamgaga.
“True to our fears, you have seen yourself sir how some of those you surrounded yourself with have entangled in dubious deals and shameful ways leading to their subsequent dismissals by yourself. This seed is not of MCP,” reads part of the letter.
Again, the “frustrated” members have told Chakwera to reshuffle his cabinet and fill vacant positions; arguing his prerogative is not a blank cheque.
Spokesperson for the grouping, Alex Major has confirmed writing Chakwera; stressing he must explain his actions to the party members at MCP headquarters if he can’t call for the NEC meeting.
In June this year, the concerned members met Chakwera at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe where they demanded to know terms of reference on his working relationship with the Vice President and UTM leader, Saulos Chilima.
State House and MCP spokesperson Maurice Munthali are yet to comment on the matter.- (Source: Rainbow Television)
