630 Join MCP in Mulanje

By Grecium Gama

Members of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the United Transformation Movement (UTM) from the Mulanje Bale constituency have joined the Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

During a welcoming ceremony, Davie Simoya, a former UTM governor for the constituency, said they decided to join the ruling party because the government was addressing development in Mulanje without discrimination.

Simoya mentioned that the people in the area had faced food shortages, but the government provided maize flour and included them in the Mtukula Pakhomo program, offering monthly financial assistance to families.

“If the previous government were in power, we wouldn’t have received this support, because this area is known as a Democratic Progressive Party stronghold,” he explained.

Simoya also committed to recruiting more people to support the current government to secure victory in the 2025 elections.

Brown Mpinganjira, a senior MCP member, revealed that over 10,000 people from various opposition parties in Mulanje District had already joined the MCP.

“This shows that people recognize the positive work the government is doing in the community,” he said.

Richard Khembo, the District Campaign Director, emphasized his commitment to promoting the MCP’s manifesto to attract more supporters.

“We want to change the perception that Mulanje is a stronghold of the opposition DPP,” he said
