Deputy director of women in the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Martha Chimpozo Kamanga has quit the party and joined main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP).
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.
