Tonse Alliance expires in 2025 says MCP

Ching'oma

Just as all things must eventually come to an end, the Tonse Alliance, forged to displace the oppressive DPP regime in 2020, will reach its end in 2025, according to the Malawi Congress Party (MCP). In an interview, MCP spokesperson Ezekiel Ching’oma stated that the party’s national executive committee (NEC), having already affirmed President Lazarus Chakwera as the presidential candidate, will convene to reassess and establish new arrangements by 2025.

He said: “It should be emphasised that this agreement does not extend beyond that specified period. Consequently, the NEC will convene again to discuss and plan for the future.

“It is essential to reconvene and engage in constructive discussions to formulate a fresh agreement that encompasses all the parties we intend to collaborate with. This will allow us to establish a renewed and comprehensive alliance, ensuring a strong and unified front for the years to come.”

Ching’oma acknowledged occasional disagreements among MCP and UTM supporters on social media platforms, but said Chakwera and Chilima have closely worked together to achieve common goals.

However, UTM spokesperson Felix Njawala said an announcement regarding the alliance will be made at an appropriate time.
