Kudontoni: DPP getting stronger

Chiwondo was elected as an independent MP but said he would now want to be in the ruling party.

He announced his joining of DPP during a public rally at Malembo Primary School ground in Mangochi.

Chiwondo said he was happy to be associated with the ruling DPP.

“I am obviously over the moon to have joined the DPP which has visionary leaders. I would like to contribute to national development through the ruling party,” Chiwondo said.

Chiwondo said he would do everything within his might to live on his promise made in the run up to the May 20 elections of transforming the constituency so that people’s living standards improve.

Secretary General for the DPP, Ecklen Kudontoni said Chiwondo’s decision shows that the ruling party was getting stronger each day.

“We are very happy today to welcome MP for this constituency Hon. Chiwondo into the mighty ruling DPP. We would like to assure him that we will work hand in hand with him to ensure that our party grows from strength to strength for the benefit of all Malawians,” Kudontoni said.

Kudontoni noted that not was easy for a party in opposition to win a general election in the Malawi.

“It is not easy for an opposition party to win elections in Malawi but as DPP we managed to win the elections and this shows that people in the country love the party and that they have trust in its leadership,” he said.

Kudontoni, therefore, urged members of the party to avoid petty jealousies and backbiting for fear of disintegrating the party.

Parliament is scheduled to reconvene on May 5 for the 2015/2016 national budget deliberations.

Did the DPP win the Elections? Who are you trying to fool. Let me remind you, the DPP bulldozed its way through hook and crook means on one side and ONE Maxon Mbendera SC announced the so called victory with tears flowing like a kid. For the very first time in the history of this nation we witnessed a president being sworn in at a magistrate court when all other presidents before him were sworn at the the stadium.
