People’s Party (PP) interim Vice President Kamlepo Kalua has charged that the former ruling party stands a good chance of bouncing back to power in 2019 elections.
Kalua said at a political rally he addressed in Karonga that PP can win the 2019 election because failure by the DPP to deliver will work in favour of the PP.
He also informed that former president Joyce Banda remains the party leaders and that she is expected to come soon.
“Don’t listen to those that are instilling fear in you that the PP will never bounce back. In PP you have all the reasons to bounce back to power,” said Kalua.
He said DPP government expected PP to be totally disintegrated and that it has been sponsoring divisions in the party.
“I want you to realize that we have been attacked from the front, from the back, from the rear, from the side but we will not be dismantled. The DPP are trying to comfort them by lying to themselves that they will remain in power,” said Kalua.
At the rally. The Rumphi East Member of Parliament (MP) accused Paramount chief Kyungu for allowing President Peter Muthalika to name Karonga-Chitipa road ‘Bingu high-way’ saying “I know that he did that because he was afraid with government and to please the President.”
Kamlepo wondered why national infrastructures in the country are not named with the name of northerners despite being the one fighting for the freedom of the country.
The rally attracted a poor turn out and Kalua accused former PP provincial governor for the north Rev Mzomera Ngwira has that he stopped party members from attending the meeting.
Kamlepo said that “I know that this low turn-up is because of Mzomera’s plan, he is a person that is causing confusion in the party as he also did the same in Mzuzu on 24 January this year where he caused fracas on the rally we organized.”
However, Mzomera distanced himself from the accusation saying the interim leaders are unpopular to the supporters hence poor patronage.
“I am in Lilongwe as I am talking to you, and I don’t have knowledge that Kamlepo is holding the party’s rally today in Karonga,” argued Mzomera on Sunday.
Mzomera was expelled from the party and his position in February this year, following the allegations that he was involved in violence at the party’s meeting in Mzuzu.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
