MCP Revives 2025 Chakwera’s Candidature

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) enthusiasts Saturday took turns at a rally in Nkhotakota endorsing President Lazarus Chakwera as the party’s candidate for 2025 elections.

MCP youth director, Richard Chimwendo-Banda, who is also Youth and Sports Minister, said it was everyone’s wish in the party that Chakwera be their torchbearer.

Banda was speaking at St Paul’s Primary School after earlier leading the party’s youths in planting trees at Jalo Model Primary School in the district.

The remarks cement speculation that MCP will go solo in the 2025 elections, thereby contravening what UTM Party leader Saulos Chilima told a Tonse Alliance mega rally at Njamba Freedom Park in Blantyre, prior to the court-sanctioned Fresh Presidential Election in 2020, about the alliance’s leadership beyond 2025.

Chilima said at the rally that they had agreed as Tonse Alliance members that Chakwera would lead first (2020 to 2025) and then pass the batton to him.

Also speaking at the rally, Foreign Affairs Minister Nancy Tembo, assured that government would ensure that targeted beneficiaries of the Affordable Inputs Program-AIP would redeem thier inputs.
