Phoya in Lilongwe MCP Conference

Blantyre Rural East legislator Mr. Henry Phoya told Zodiak online today January 10 that he will be holding a press conference at 15 hrs in Lilongwe city to “clarify” certain political issues.

There are strong rumors that Mr. Phoya could be announcing a political change of hat after falling out of favor with the ruling Democratic Progressive Party-DPP- on whose ticket he went to parliament.

Mr. Phoya was fired from the DPP for refusing to defend an unpopular bill on injunctions which, he believes, was a serious infringement on people’s right to accessing justice.

Mr. Phoya is a lawyer by profession.

There is speculation that Mr. Phoya will be announcing his joining the Malawi Congress Party-MCP-which is soul searching with regard to who shall be its torch bearer in presidential elections in 2014.

The individual who has expressed interest in representing the party in 2014 Secretary General Dr. Christopher Daza is already in conflict with current leadership which is evidently broking his way.

An MCP official told Zodiak Online January 10 that the Phoya press briefing will be held at MCP party president John Tembo’s area 10 residence.

The MCP is also expected to make an announcement about Dr. Daza.  - Zodiak Online

I feel sorry for your wrong choice,you are on a death bed-pairing with Baba T if you could stand as an independent you could have massive support, find out the likes of Chafukira,Dausi ,Njobvuyalema etc they all failed to make any impact

Looking at the political landscape in Malawi, only MCP offers Mr Phoya a real opportunity to challenge for the presidency in 2014. UDF is in disarray, PP was formed for Joyce Banda and contains baggage from UDF and obviously he can't return to DPP. I believe that MCP can be re-branded under a new leader to provide people with a real alternative. Lets forget the past and focus on the future.
