Josiah was ushered into the position during the function held at Cross Roads hotel in Lilongwe
which was president by State Vice president Saulos Chilima.

Speaking to Nyasa Times after the appointment, Josiah said his first mission is to help the party to
gain full support in the central region which is highly dominated by opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP.)

“DPP will make inroads in the central region. We will mobilise many people to join the DPP,” he said.

He also said his focus will be to help DPP win more parliamentary seats in the central region.

Vice President  Chilima urged all party followers to support Josiah in his work as they now have huge task in rebuilding the party in the region in readiness for 2019 general elections.

Kudontoni was appointed secretary general after Dr Jean Kalilani was stripped the post and made party advisor.

    For sure, Chilima must be regretting having joined DPP. He must have realised this too late. This is a party for fools and not a wise person like him. He was a genus at Airtel, somebody who made things work. But now he has been reduced to a pile of hey for feeding animals. All his intelligence has vanished from him. So, for Josiah to say he will get people from MCP, is a dream of a barren woman who thinks she will have twins one day, without a miracle. Shame Mr Josiah, you will not manage it, ask UDF,PP and others.

    Josiah you indeed have some money, but you may not afford buying us all to join this party of dead brains, right from the President, ministers, MPS, party officials, down to the roots. Who has not witnessed their failure, what is going on in the country that signifies any positivity of administration. All those that support this President are complete fools and they are witches and wizards who want to see Malawians die of poverty and hunger. Muzingoba ndaramazo panopo, kuti mukadzachka mudzikaday ku a melaka, otherwise something devastating again will happen within the next 15 months. Our God can not keep watching us suffer at the hands of satanic people. God is more powerful than satan.

    Dean Josiah Banda should reconsider his decision. His money will be depleted. Komanso Central Region pano ikukungana supporting the MCP. Don’t you know that Dr. Ntaba, Jean Kalirani, Chimunthu Banda are all going back to MCP?

  15. tribesmen says:

    Malawian political parties never ceases to amaze me. I guess Kudontoni had a deputy dully elected through the convention so why not just promote that person? That’s why parties can appoint outsiders as running mates sidelining sitting party VP’s. In this way parties will never develop but this is understandable because Malawian parties are family owned and supported by blind tribal loyalists.

  20. Nyani wa ku Mwananyani says:

    Only one party can truly call itself a national party in Malawi. And that is DPP. Mr. Banda should follow the formula that has succeeded. When it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
    DPP is on an ascending trajectory, for the next election cycles. More MPs will be elected from all regions, including the Center, the very back yard of MCP. Malawians are feeling more and more comfortable with APM in charge. The man is not panicking even when the going gets tough, like now, when some selfish NGOs are unwisely planning to paint a negative picture of APM’s administration. Bootlickers! Surrogates of loser PP, and their failure leader who should have refused the presidency, in the first place!

  33. Namalila says:

    Thanks for the encouragement Right Hon . the Vice President , we indeed need a harmonised party paticularly in the central and northern region if we are to retain the victory of the election in 2019 without resistance of acceptance from the oppossing side.
