On Sunday the two who are members of Parliament for Salima Central and North respectively were threatened against attending a political rally which was addressed by the party’s president Lazarous Chakwera in Salima North on Sunday.
“It is true that we were warned against attending the function for no reason a warning we went against.
“We found it out of order to boycott a meeting addressed by our president within our district,” said Jumbe.
According to Jumbe who has described himself as open minded told MBC that some officials from the party would like to frustrate his political ambitions and career.
“If somebody thinks that they will make me resign from the party by cornering me then they have failed because I am a full time farmer who doesn’t mind”.
He added that during the rally some of his supporters were sprayed with paper spray and even the former district chairperson whom he only named as Mapulesi was also chased from the rally for sympathising with him.
Meanwhile MCP spokesperson Dr Jessie Kabwira did not give the party’s position saying because her supporters were also assaulted at the rally which compromises her neutrality on the issue.
She referred this reporter to Mapulesi who was also unceremoniously removed from his position for siding with the two.
Recently the party re-allocated the two from their front seats in Parliament to back benches.
