Khumbo Kachali poised to launch new party, dumps PP again

Former vice-president Khumbo Kachali has again sounded that he is qutting erstwhile ruling People’s Party (PP) again as he is poised toflaunching a new political party.

Kachali: Dumps PP again

Kachali said he is on a mission to clean up the politics of Malawi with new political movement, saying  there is a body of ideas out there people would support.

“Watch this space, there’s a possibly a new party movement coming,” said Kachali.

He said he has been out strategising and reconnecting with the people.

Kachali is reportedly working among others with Christopher Mzomera Ngwira (legislator for Mzimba Hora) in the new political movement.

Ngwira is a strong supporter of Kachali and he once declared him PP leader following Joyce Banda’s failure to return home as the party founder and president.

Others being courted include PP national executive committee (NEC) member Elias Wakuda Kamanga.

While serving as State Vice-President during the Banda regime, Kachali had quit PP with only few days to the May 20 Tripartite Elections.

Banda left out Kachali as a running mate and opted for Industry and Trade Minister Sosten Gwengwe – the presidential ticket that flopped miserably.

Banda and Kachali were expelled from  Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)in December 2010 for allegedly forming parallel party structures. However, the two were on record as having said their dismissal was because they refused to endorse the presidential candidature of current DPP leader Peter Mutharika.

In April 2012, Banda ascended to the presidency in line with constitutional order after the death of former president the late Bingu wa Mutharika and picked Kachali as her Vice-President.

Before joining DPP, Kachali was treasure general of United Democratic Front (UDF), the party which Banda also served as director of women.

Do we have politicians in Malawi? I believe we have fortune seekers. If there are true and genuine politicians, may be very few. At the most, we have opportunists. Lord have mercy for my country

Komanso Atumbuka chimene amaganiza akasowa chochita ndikuyambitsa chipani basi. See Nyondo, Chiume, Gondwe, Kamulepo, Orton Chirwa, Aleke Banda, Chisi and many others. Maybe it’s high time scientists engaged in deeper research to find medication to heal the power appetite for Tumbukas. If truth be told, Khumbo Kachale is a spent force. Despite being vice president, he failed with distinction to eliminate the quota system

Malawians you don’t know Northern politicians. With the 50+1 system people like Khumbo, Junior Tzar of Aford and Ngwira are strategizing to be roped by big parties through party coallisions. They will form fake parties/groups and negotiate with DPP and MCP for posts in the 50+1 System because they know the system will force coalitions to occur for a party to win. The nomadic politicians are seeing this. So the parties being formed or reformed are meant to be tools to bargain for posts in the big parties. They know better than you do that they can not win on… Read more »

This man has nothing to offer Malawians. Ali ndi moyo odzikweza, odzitukumula komanso odzikweza kwambiri.

Osangolowa MCP bwanji? Greedy and selfish politicians of Malawi.
