After months of endless speculation, businessman and politician Sidik Mia has officially joined the Malawi Congress Party (MCP).
MCP Deputy GS Eisenhower Mkaka announced to thousands of people at Mgabu Sports Ground that Mia has decided to join the MCP out of his own volition.
MCP President Lazarus Chakwera welcomed Mia and gave him a party cloth.
Mia hismelf said he has decided to join MCP because it is the only party with credibility
Commenting on the Vice Presidency, Mia said he is not going to take over a position but if someone sleeps on the job, he will take over. “Why not”? he said.
He however said Vice President is not elected at convention but appointed by the party president chooses.
“Hence, nobody knows what is in Chakwera’s heart”.
Conspicuously missing from the rally was MCP Secretary General Gustav Kaliwo and MCP Vice President Richard Msowoya.
Chakwera said DPP days are numbered.
“Come 2019, start counting the days, the DPP is getting out of power. They have stolen enough. We will be revealing their every dirty move…
“There are no medicines in hospitals, workers are dissatisfied. All because people are stealing.
Stolen money enough to educate students in public universities,” he said.
He further said any Malawian of goodwill is welcome to join MCP.
“As president of MCP, I am inviting everyone who wants us to rid Malawi of nepotism, corruption, theft of public funds to join MCP, time of letting bad things go is over,”.
