Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President John Zenasi Ungapake Tembo (JZU) has told fellow senior party officials who are tired of running MCP to follow him.

Tembo was speking Saturday in Lilongwe when he officially opened the MCP national convention.

Whilst not disclosing that he is retiring, Tembo hinted that “Those of you tired of running the party, you may retire alongside me.”

This was the first hint ever by the veteran politician that he is now ready to pave way for a new leader in Malawi’s oldest political party.

The convention is later expected to choose a party leader who is also going to be the party’s Presidential candidate in the 2014 tripartite elections.

Amongst those attending the convention include DPP spokesperson Nicholus Dausi, PP acting secretary general Paul Maulidi, British and Chinese envoys to Malawi and former Official Hostess Mama Cecilia Tamanda Kadzamira.
