Daza, Gwanda, Katola and Lamba welcomed in Malawi’s ruling PP

The ruling People’s Party (PP) on Thursday, officially welcomed four prominent political leaders from the opposition parties who have joined the party.

These included Dr Chris Daza who was the Secretary General for the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), veteran politician Elias Katola Phiri also from MCP, Dr Isaac Lamba from the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and former MCP president Gwanda Chakuamba. Also welcomed was MCP director of youths in Ntchisi district and scores of defectors from the MCP.

Introducing the defectors at a rally President Joyce Banda held in Ntchisi district  after the joint elevation ceremony of Senior Chiefs Malenga and Kasakula,  the PP’s acting  Secretary General Paul Maulidi described the defections as an indication of growing popularity of President Banda and PP in the country.

“This is just the beginning. Many more executive members of the party you feel are popular are coming and joining PP,” he said.

Maulidi said with such development it is only unwise people who can underrate the leadership of President Banda.

“We are cruising for victory in next year’s election. It’s Joyce Banda for presidency beyond 2014,” said Maulidi.

Speaking earlier PP provincial chair for the centre Dave Kambalame corroborated with Maulidi, saying Banda’s leadership cannot be underrated.

“President Joyce Banda should not be underrated. She is a front runner in the next year’s elections and make no mistake, she is going to win the elections, PP will remain to be the people’s government,” he said.
