Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regional governor in the Northern Region Kenneth Sanga has contradicted government spokesperson Patricia Kaliati by admitting that newspaper reports were accurate that the party ferried supporters to the Chitipa political rally using taxpayer’s money.
Kaliati, who is also Minister of Information, accused Malawi News for what she called sensational reporting “to claim these are old-habits-die-hard” for DPP when it reported about the matter, rejecting that it was fabrication.
But DPP’s north governor Sanga said actually the story was credible.
He said it was actually Minister of Sports and Culture Grace Chiumia who used the vehicle to carry a party affiliated musical grouping to the rally.
Sanga conceded that a government vehicle also carried party supporters to the rally.
“It has come to my attention that the government vehicle carried the party supporters. However, the party did not ask for any government vehicles to the rally but it was Obama [Grace Chiumia] who did,” said Sanga as quoted by Daily Times, a sister title of Malawi News.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
