Kalua’s appointment is with effect from Monday 4th January, 2016, the party has confirmed.

Publicity and Administrative Secretary, Ken Msonda said Kalua’s appointment was done by acting party president, Uladi Mussa.

”The appointment was done after consultations with the founder and President of the Peoples Party HE Dr. Joyce Banda,” said Msonda.

The appointment of Kalua might be deemed as a move to restore sanity in the northern region following controversies over the dismissal of the party’s regional chairperson, Christopher Mzomera Ngwira in November last year.

Ngwira, who was once dismissed from PP in September same year for creating ‘confusion’ in the party before its president Joyce Banda intervened and rescinded the decision, has been accused of destabilizing the party, the accusation he denied.

Ngwira has been propagating the idea of having Khumbo Kachali, who happens to be from north, to be the party’s interim president.

”The party needs a leadership chosen by people and not those appointed by one person,” he said.

 Ngwira said what he was fighting for was interim leadership within the party and Kachali was just one of the people that he proposed for that role.

According to Ngwira, in his various statements on the issue, he even mentioned Mussa’s name but journalists chose to pick and speak more of Kachali.

“Only that the problem with you journalists is that you could just pick one person, and you just picked one name. I was mentioning the name of Khumbo Kachali as well as Uladi Mussa. I was mentioning the name of Kachali just because he is a person I know very well in Malawi and has performed in politics. But the main issue was leadership. We were lacking the leadership.

“I am just congratulating her Excellency Dr Joyce Banda for coming to our rescue. Indeed she has given us a leader and we will give support to this leader so that our party should be strong from the grassroots and we expect to see change within our party set-up,” Ngwira said as quoted by Daily Times.

“What I deserve is what Dr Joyce Banda has done. I wanted a leadership and Dr Banda has given us that leadership. It doesn’t matter who has been given that leadership,” he said.

Kamlepo Kalua is PP’s Rumphi East Parliamentarian.

Before joining the party he was the founder and leader of now defunct Malawi Democratic
Party (MDP).

Kalua is well known for his brevity to take on Heads of States and ruling governments on issues of national interest.

He is one of the people who played pivotal role in the fight against one party dictatorship and promotion of multi-party democracy.

    Why do you have to start with the statement “the former ruling party” …JUST SAY People’s Party and that will be enough as there is no other party known by that name in Malawi. Would it make sense to say the former ruling party MCP?

    “Bravity” and “brevity”! Which is which?

  17. chilungamo says:

    Brevity is the act or character of being brief. One of its ontonymns is verbosity. Bravery is the show of courage or fearlessness or daring. One of its antonymns is cowardice. So may be you meant to say that Kamlepo is brave, courageous, fearless, a dare-devil.

  18. PP Supporter says:

    hey admin, why did you take down the abortion bill post? did somebody tell you off hmm?

  25. levelheaded says:

    How many people fought for Malawi democracy? Almost every politician has his profile linking to that. Or is it everybody who voted out MCP? Or the ones in the forefront that risked their lives? Gwape akaphedwa kuchuluka a ndapha ndine.

  26. Boyi says:

    Congrats Kams you will be the president soon

    The mad house that is PP… lame appointments of appeasement every where. The caliber of people entrusted by amayi to run the affairs of the party and state really worries me….the bulk of cash gate could never have happened under anybody’s watch….emotions, emotions and emotions everywhere, even in appointments.
