MCP Parliamentarians Deny Joining Chilima Movement: Accuse DPP Of Trying To Confuse Their Supporters
Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) legislators have denied social media reports that they have joined the Chilima movement, saying the reports were the work of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to confuse the main opposition.
Dowa west MP Alexander Kusamba Dzonzi, one of the key MCP legislators on the list circulating in the social media, said it was not true that him and his colleagues met vice-president Saulos Chilima with a view to joining the Transformation movement.
“This is fake news. This is just an attempt by the DPP to confuse our followers. I am MCP and will never change,” he said.
The list also include Juliana Lunguzi, Joseph Njobvuyalema among others.
Dzonzi said somebody in the DPP just cooked up the matter probably because him and the others mentioned are Catholics.
“The movement is largely linked to the Catholic church since I am Catholic, they think that I am joining the movement but this is not true,” he said.
