DPP north regional committee under fire

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) governing committee in the northern region has received bashing from its supporters who say it has grossly failed them and is now a liability.

Masebo:  Crisis

Masebo: Crisis

Regional governor Kenneth Sanga and director of youth Kelvin Chirambo are some of the key leaders that are under fire.

A statement issued by 20 youths the party suspended for “misdemeanor” has categorically described as nonsensical for a ruling party to be functioning without a physical office space.

The youths, who claim there suspension is mere speculation since they have not been formally written, wondered how the whole of regional governor can be “operating under a tree.”

Spokesperson of the sect, now calling themselves ‘Diehards of DPP,’ Alifa Phiri told Nyasa Times that Sanga betrayed them by blocking their way when they wanted to meet their national director of youth and presidential advisor on youth affairs Nick Masebo, and Minister of Youth, Sports and Development Grace Chiumia on issues affecting their well-being.

According to Phiri, they wanted to meet Masebo and Chiumia for the jobs and businesses the party had promised them prior to the May 20 tripartite elections.

“But Sanga told us that they [Masebo and Chiumia] are the ones who don’t want us to be given capital for businesses and opportunities to be employed,” said Phiri.

He added: “But when we wanted to seek clarification from them at a recent meeting in Mzuzu he spoke against us, as if we were strangers. That’s why we even marched out which was also the reason for our suspension.”

Phiri further alleged that they are not the only ones Sanga and his committee members have frustrated.

“We need to elect new office bearers democratically because they [Sanga and committee] were merely handpicked. We didn’t vote for them,” he said.

Sanga refused to comment on the matter when Nyasa Times contacted him saying that he was busy attending to official business in Karonga.
