Foot-soldier Ken Msonda Applauds Two-Year Minimum for MCP Convention Candidacy

The once ousted and deeply controversial figure from the opposition DPP, Ken Msonda, who recently made headlines by defecting to the ruling Malawi Congress Party (MCP), is now applauding the party’s leadership for the stringent new regulations introduced ahead of the upcoming convention scheduled for August 2024.

In a statement dated April 29, 2024, one of the prerequisites for nomination to the MCP National Governing Committee includes a minimum two-year membership in the party, along with a demonstration of unwavering dedication to the party’s objectives.

In response to these developments, Msonda has lauded the decision, labelling it as a positive step that will curb the influence of opportunistic politicians while compelling members to showcase their allegiance and fidelity to the party’s core principles.

“Corrupt politicians often align themselves with a political party, particularly the ruling one, to pursue personal, financial, tribal, and political advantages. In fact, the stipulated two-year period set by the MCP is insufficient; it should have been five years or more,” remarked Msonda

Ken Msonda, Ulad Mussa, and Esther Mcheka Chilenge are among the members who, due to compliance with the regulations, will not contest any NEC position in the upcoming MCP convention.
