APM welcomes Jumbe, Katsonga in DPP

Malawi President and ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leader Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika on Wednesday stormed the eastern region district of Balaka  where he addressed a rally  where he pleaded with all Malawians to be united and work together to ensure there is development taking place in the country.

Friday Jumbe (r) and Joseph Kubwalo: To DPP

This was the first time for Mutharika to hold a rally in Balaka- a district where his wife hails from-since he was elected president on 20th May 2014.

Mutharika urged Malawians to forget whatever happened during the 2014 general election and forge ahead.

“Election period is over and this is time to develop Malawi” Mutharika said.

Mutharika dropped the hint that former president of New Labour Party, Friday Jumbe and former Chipani Cha Pfuko  (CCP) president Davies Katsonga want to join the DPP.

“All those who want to come back [to DPP] are very welcome” said Mutharika .

During the elections Jumbe  obtained an injunction restraining Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) from conducting a voter recounting process.

Months after losing miserably in the tripartite elections Jumbe stepped down  as NLP  leader and expressed interest to work with DPP.

Jumbe, the former finance minister who once held an acting presidency of United Democratic Front (UDF) said that he resigned from active politics to concentrate on his private life outside pressures of politics.

Former CCP president Davies Katsonga announced of the deregistering of his party saying he decided to support president Mutharika’s government which has ideologies similar to those of CCP.

He eventually joined the government side in parliament after notifying the Speaker.

    Katsonga n Jumbe kumeneko ndiye kubwela, for Malawi to develop we need people who come to a stop street and double think; Can I Make it Alone? If the answer is no, then plz dont waste time work with those you see can bring change to you and others, dont waste peoples time join the moving car – and I can advise that those who had their parties and failed elections must be the fielrst individuals to be apointed as Diplomats followed by our own party members, and this must be based on their campaign manifestos. A very good conglatulations to both father and son of Muluzi family to stop and think development – Halala Malawi halala!!!!

    Democracy. What? absolutely stinks – our political system allow such things to happen, under the very noses of “us, halfwits. This only happens in Malawi where incompetency, daylight robbery, fraud and corruption are rewarded. Politicians know that we are a bunch of dimwits (apologies for some of my language – however I can’t find better words to describe us Malawians). Politicians take advantage and capitalise on our persistent dormancy – unless we do something, this trend will continue for another 50 years. we need a Paul Kagame in Malawi – someone who would clean our political system of this chronic viral infection – as system choke-full of bunch of people who only have personal items at the top of their agenda, they shove the needs of common people low on their priority lists.

    Tsamba who cares whether he is a professor or not. A professor of what? A professor of corruption has become. no worries though, Sata is gone and we know who is next according to the trend and similarities between our two countries. GOD WORKS MYSTERIOUSLY SOME TIMES.

  8. matako says:

    Nothing new here the typical political prostitutes looking for greener pastures. No loyalty to their morals and political ideology. They are a bunch of opportunists that need to be done away with. They are a disgrace to our young democracy. Corrupt bastards!!

  24. stanicious says:

    I wonder why would someone with his senses intact could welcome these 2 tried, tested, failed political prostitutes who keep on revolving on the political scene for ages without a grain of substance but greedy for money and power? Peter you promised us that government will be run as an unusual is this what you mean? We read in the paper that this junkie called Katsonga could not afford to pay a bill of MK. 70’000.00 at a filling station during campain period don’t you think he is up to fattening his stomach or what new thing will he bring to a common man in the village? am told he was only voted as MP coz people have no instinctive choice, as Dausi he was graded as madeya GF 10. Friday Jumbe is the reason why ADMARC was brought to it’s sudden death bed, a man hanging on the hoover with corruption cases, a man who proclaimed himself as President of a featus party that died before seeing the light, a party that is likely not to send one of it’s members to parliament in it’s tiny entire life. The worst finance minister Malawi ever had, perhaps he is looking for small mercies from you bwana Mutharika kuti tima meeting ting’oting’onotu should be directed to Superior hotel, a hotel born out of swindled returns of ADMARC. But it’s the same thing “A PERSON WHO LEADS ASSASINS IS ALSO AN ASSASIN” i mean “A PERSON WHO LEADS THIEVIES IS ALSO A THIEF”
