Northern Region Rejects MCP As Mzimba Rallies, Dinner Marred With Low Turn Out Forcing Mia To Boycott Gathering
People in the Northern Region have rejected Malawi Congress Party (MCP ) which had a rally at Eswazini and Ekwendeni in Mzimba east constituency over the weekend , with a handful of supporters attending the rallies despite that MCP had all its squad with it, Malawi Independent can reveal.
According to our reporter who was available at all the rallies , the presence of Chakwera,Mkaka,Maurice Munthali, Sosten Gwengwe,Gotani Hara,Madalitso Kazombo, Sidik Mia and Harry Mkandawire was not even enough to attract thousands to their rallies , a clear indication that the region has not forgotten of the atrocities it suffered during the MCP ruthless rule.
Sidik Mia only attended the Ekwendeni rally but was frustrated with low turn out and he left before his party went for another rally at Eswazini .
During the rally, MP for the area Christopher Mnyenyembe joined MCP from ruling DPP.
In other news, there was low turn out at Chatonda Hotel on Saturday evening where MCP had organised a dinner and dance party.
