Joyce Banda stops Mzomera, Kondowe’s expulsion: PP summons the two

President and founder of opposition Peoples Party (PP), Joyce Banda has reversed the party’s decision to expell two provincial chairpersons, Reverend Christopher Mzomera Ngwira and Cliffer Kondowe.

Mzomera: To be heard at a hearing

Mzomera: To be heard at a hearing

The party through its Secretary General, Ibrahim Matola on Saturday expelled Mzomera and Kondowe from the party over alleged misconduct after the two led a group of thugs to disrupt a meeting Matola had organized in the northern region in preparation for the return of Banda.

However, the decision to expell the two didn’t go well with Banda who has since ordered the party to rescind the decision and summon the two for disciplinary hearing.

According to a letter signed by Matola dated September 6, 2015, which Nyasa Times has sourced, the party has reversed its decision and the two are no longer expelled but suspended pending disciplinary hearing.

”Dear Hon Christopher Mzomera Ngwira, Please refer to the letter you received on your expulsion. The party President HE Dr. Joyce Banda has directed that inspite of the seriousness of the misconduct; you are suspended and not expelled in order to be given an opportunity to be heard,” reads the letter in part.

”You are therefore being invited to appear before the party disciplinary subcommittee on Friday 11th September, 2015; 10am at Maranatha Lodge, Area 47 near Bwandilo, in Lilongwe”.

The party on Saturday gave Mzomera and Kondowe seven days to hand over all party materials in their possession including vehicles.

Mzomera is the party’s northern province Chairperson while Kondwe was Provincial Chairlady.

According to letters Nyasa Times sourced, Mzomera and Kondowe were accused of causing ‘confusion’ in the party.

Mzomera is said to have threatened party officials from other regions not to hold party meetings in the north or else there will be bloodshed.

He is also reported to have refused to appear before the party’s disciplinary committee several times over his sentiments that Khumbo Kachali is the party’s interim leader.

Mzomera confirmed to Nyasa Times that they indeed disrupted the meeting, saying he is in charge of the party in the north and maintained that Khumbo Kachali is acting leader.

“I am taking orders from Khumbo Kachali, he is the acting leader of PP,” said Mzomera.

Kachali is said to have bankrolled controversial Mzomera to pay thugs to disrupt the meeting, but he dismissed the allegations.

The expulsion of Mzomera and Kondowe came days after the party suspended its Director of Administration, Reverend Peter Kaleso for indiscipline.

Kaleso has been replaced by Ken Msonda on acting capacity while waiting to appear before the party’s disciplinary committee.

  38. commentator says:

    If the two hired thugs to disrupt an orderly meeting, why can’t the law be enforced on them? Is this not “conduct likely to cause breach of peace”? Let’s not condone disorderly public behaviour, regardless of who is involved, be it Mtwmi wa Matemi Kyungu or Christopher Mzomera Ngwira. By the way, the full Mzomera name is Mzomera-vyawanyake-vyake vikumutonda, in my intepretation, meaning being too enthusiastic about wrong priorities. Some names carry generational curses. That’s why I discourage my mum from being too connected to the bragging rights to the ” Mzomera” praise. Seriously, she once used to spend a lot of energy on other people’s enterprises.

  39. Chinyanga says:

    Its so funny & pathetic at the same time how PP runs its party. Mama, your prolonged absence leads to this mess..if u really love yo party then just pay a visit someday to encourage your followers otherwise I see nothing lucrative here..So in this scenario, how these two members (mzomera & Kondowe) look at Ibram Matola? Aren’t u creating an enemity here. As a global free agent, u have a right to travel & live wherever u want- that much we understand but………………………………………….

  40. Moses Makoko says:

    It’s only in malawi where political parties bloom up like mushrooms! No wonder the structures are shaky due to the poor foundation. A party like PP can not survive a test of time like MCP has done and as such it’s not a party worthy joining.

  41. Jose' says:

    Piiii Piiiiii! Yanyamuka …. Siyidzayimanso!

  42. Aniche says:

    This is just politics to portray amai as a good forgiving leader.You mean the party was making this important decision without the approval of the party leader? If that is the case then the party is in turmoil, you cant be making such big decisions without the head knowing, even approving of it. Its just politics, dont take note of anything, afterall the party is in real trouble. At first Msonda was claiming that those leaving the party is a cleansing process but seeing that everybody is going, he couldnt continue with his useless claims.

  43. gooluck says:

    hehehehe, koma kumeneko

  44. Yanyamukaaaa!!! says:

    The problem is that the party is now like a train without a captain whilst cruising 200 miles per hour on the railway line and without even knowing it’s destination. What is amai running away from by imposing herself into that self exile she is into now? So does she really expect people to be idle with this sinking orange briefcase party coz of cowardice. Let indeed the brave warrior like Khumbo be here to lead the party so that she can remain into that Osama Bin-Laden’s hideouts.. Pasogolo ndi Nzomera Ngwira pasogolo ndi kutha kwa PP ulendo wakuchiphedi kuti wayaa!!

  45. Brazilian wax says:

    Awa ndiye masanje a chipani. Zokonda amayi za pa mtondo. Just think of it such people ruling a country. My foot !

  46. Rev. Mzomera to be called Reftenant Mzomera how can he speak of bloodsheed? This is un called for.He should apologise it is wrong for such a leader to speak about bloodshed as we are busy trying ways how we can help our Country move out of these miseries we are in now.

  47. Muyande says:

    Good decission taken and thats what good Leadership is all about!God bless you Mama!
