Martha Chompozo Kamanga: Quits DPP

Mzuzu-based Kamanga said she has resigned from DPP citing lack of focus and emergence of factions.

Kamanga, who is a mother to Elizabeth and Mable Pullu, both former Miss Malawi and herself was also a beauty queen, confirmed she has joined MCP.

“After realising we were in the same bus but with different bus stops I decided to quit because the party is no longer progressive,” she said.

She said if DPP will not resolve its factionalism, the party was headed for doom.

“I am not bitter nor do I have bad feeling for leaving DPP. But I had to make a decision as a matter of principle,” she said.

DPP’s Eclen Kudontoni said the party has accepted Kamanga’s resignation because she voluntary joined the party just like other party members.

“She voluntary joined DPP out of her conviction and if that conviction is not there anymore, we cannot hold her,” said Kudontoni.

    Good move, Mama. Apatu dzanja lalemba. Take it or leave it.

  5. The Patriot says:

    Freedom of association is enshrined in our constitution, no need to call her names. Joining MCP is a wise move for people of the North and Center. DPP has shown time and again that it is a party of Southerners. Main priority of DPP is to keep power in the South, that is all, no development agenda!! Verily, verily, I say unto all Malawians within the next decade power will be moving to the center and it will never come back South. Ndiyeno mudzaone mmene zimakhalira kuona only 3 out of 20 ministers coming from your region!!! Panopa tiyeni nazo ndi nthawi yanu. Zinakanika only 2 years ya JB , kunali kulira ndikukuta mano ati chifukwa a kwao kujaku kwa mtundu uwuwu anawachotsa ntchito ndi kuwamana ma contract. History repeats itself!

    welcome.

  7. Nyapapi says:

    Whether Martha is spent force or not but democracy is a game of numbers. This should send a signal to DPP. I had never seen any one since we adopted multiparty system of government quiting a ruling party. Surely DPP has problems, their manifesto is useless because it is failing to fix the economy.

    Why are some people lazy even to think through a problem and resort to cheap insults? Is that building a Nation? Where is duty and responsibility as citizens. Are insutls and bad language the only lessons taught to them by their parents? They shame their mothers! It is better to keep quiete than to open a mouth and badmouth a fellow Malawian.

    Please grow up and learn a language you who only know kunyosa and kutukwana.

  49. Issa Kabudula says:

    MCP must not be happy with this development – she is a politician at her own right – it can be a political jimick to be used as a spy machine for DPP, women of her calibre must be double checked. No one as we see DPP progress yes with hardship can opt to join an opposition party. Care must be taken when receiving guests nowadays and for politician double care must be taken into consideration – after a year or two the same lady will be shaking hands with the DPP president at the Palace check the space.
