Mwawa: Not in frontline politics

Mwawa’s name appeared on the list of politicians DPP were vetting before accepting in their rank and file.

But Mwawa, who served as minister of education as well as minister of health in Bakili Muluzi led UDF government, said people want to create things out of nothing .

“I wish to categorically refute to the effect that I applied or had wished to join DPP,” Mwawa told Nyasa Times.

“At no point have I shown interest to join the DPP,” he clarified.

Mwawa added: “ I wish to state without any contradiction that since I resigned from PP in 2013 prior to he general election I have been concentrating in my professional work in my clinic. I have never  made any attempt to go into active politics.”

On Sunday during a political rally President Peter Mutharika addressed at Masintha Ground in Lilongwe there were defections by several politicians, including members of Parliament (MPs) David Bisnowaty (Lilongwe City Centre Constituency), Patrick Makina (Zomba Ntonya) and Davis Katsonga (Mwanza Central),

DPP spokesperson Francis Kasaila said all newcomers were vetted before being accepted.

However, according to the DPP list seen by Nyasa Times, others are pending including former ministers Brown Mpinganjira and Henry Phoya.

    Those Who are joining DDP now are doing it by despite. They are businessmen whos businesses are not going well. They hope will get favour If they belong to government. They are making a big mistake. For DDP this is a campaign to tell opposition that DDP is growing. The stupid failure will never be voted again. They have betrayed Those voted for them by joining DDP. Bisnowaty is a fool and fortune seeker. He has NO future in DDP except a purpert. DDP loyalities will never give Jim a chance. Look AT Kachale. MCP Who are making noise are bought by DDP to make confusion in a party. It happened before. DDP is not only corrupted in money but in all aspects. And APM use weakenes of Malawians for money. Its typical American. If I was Chakwela I will ask anyone Who is not happy to leave the party. How can they start fighting when they are towards campaigning? How do they expect to win? They need unit. Iam going to meet Chakwela. We have NO time to fight about small issues.
