Fired Malawi Congress Party, MCP member Alex Major said he is yet to receive an official letter from the Party about his removal from the Party.
Major was announced fired by the Party for allegedly undermining Party president Dr Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera and sowing seeds of disunity in Party members.
In a letter dated 5 July 5, 2022 signed by the MCP General Secretary, Eisenhower Mkaka accuses Mkaka of holding critical views against the Party and how the Party president, Chakwera is handling governance issues in the country.
Mkaka has also expressed displeasure with Major’s conduct which, he says, undermines the Super HI-5 agenda championed by Chakwera, which represents servant leadership, rule of law, uniting Malawi, prospering together and ending corruption.
“In consultation with other senior party officials, a unanimous decision has been made to expel you from the party with immediate effect,” Mkaka’s letter reads.
He adds that Major’s conduct in the past year has been inconsistent with the party’s values, enshrined in its four pillars of unity, obedience, loyalty and discipline.
But commenting on the matter, Major said he is yet to receive the official letter informing him about his removal from the Party.
He said, “I have not officially received a letter but I will be having the letter shortly. I will not comment on the matter until I got the letter and seek some consultation, then I will be able to respond.
However, Major has threatened to take legal action against the party’s Secretary General Eisenhower Mkaka if he does not withdraw the decision to dismiss him from the party.
Major says he is surprised with the decision that the party has taken without giving him chance to be heard on the matter.
Meanwhile, political scientist George Chaima has described the decision as unfortunate, stressing the importance of respecting the party’s constitution.
