Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president, I would realise the need to act on the reported power wrangles in my party.
If I were the MCP leader, I would demonstrate that I am in control by getting to the bottom of the power wrangles, some of them so petty, before they get out of hand.
Oh yes, if I were Baba Ochakwera, I would appreciate that being man of God does not necessarily mean I should behave as a saint who offers the other cheek. That does not work in politics and precisely that is why it is called a dirty game.
How I wish I were the MCP leader because I would also remind my subjects on the need to uphold the four corner stones—unity, loyalty, obedience and discipline—as set by the party’s longtime former President, Kamuzu Banda.
Only if I happened to be Reverend Chakwera, I would realise that when some of the executive committee members are reported to be fuelling rifts and then I sit idle as if nothing is happening, then something is terribly wrong.
That is if I happened to be Re. Dr. Lazarus Chakwera, president of the MCP, sadly I am not him. Kwacha!!!! Kwachaaaa!!
