Maulidi claims backing from PP brass against JB 

Former ruling People’s Party (PP) acting Secretary General, Paul Maulidi said the decision the party’s leadership made to pull out of the forthcoming By-elections was made without a blessing of the national executive committee.

PP president Joyce Banda earlier this month ordered the party to pull out of the elections set for next month after the losing confidence in the Malawi Electoral Commission (Mec).

Maulidi, who obtained Stay Order from the Supreme Court to commence judicial review proceedings on Banda’s decision aside from demanding compensation, told Nyasa Times in an exclusive interview several top party officials are against Banda’s decision.

“Some of officials in the party are not happy with the decision because it was personal; it was made without knowledge of the executive committee. And there are so many people who are on my side,” argued Maulidi.

Maulidi challenged that he remains PP executive member and that was still using the party structures in his campaign for the Blantyre North constituency by-elections, adding some officials including one of the party’s vice-presidents, Uladi Mussa have been supporting him.

Uladi Mussa popularly known as ‘change goal’ glaced Maulidi’s campaign rally on Sunday in the constituency with the parliamentary candidate challenging “I am still PP member and the decision they made was a breach of my Constitutional rights.”

Maulidi added: “The decision to pull out of the by-election is disenfranchising the party supporters, especially those who us as candidates. I am standing on PP ticket and am doing so for the interest of the people in my constituency.”

He said the decision to sue Banda for K27 million wouldn’t fracture his relationship with the party’s leadership, arguing “I never intended to ask for that money but they have to compensate me for what I spent during primaries and campaign period before May elections.” 

Meanwhile, PP’s Deputy Director of Political Affairs , Levy Luwemba has come out openly  backing Maulidi and condemning the party decision not to contest during the forth coming October 7 bye elections.

Luwemba said the decision by the PP leadership was emotional and not relevant with the current global politics.

He said during the earlier meetings, which the party had, it  was agreed that the party should field candidates in all the wards and constituencies where the by elections would take place.

Publicity Secretary, Ken Msonda refused to comment on the issue saying “PP respects democratic institutions, we respect our judicial systems. Mr. Maulidi sued the party and its leadership; obtained a court injunction against the party founder and president and the party on the by-elections issue. We cannot therefore comment on matters that are in court.”

Recently, Msonda described Maulidi as confused, desperate and frustrated person by going against the party’s position.—(Additional reporting by Alfred Chauwa, Nyasa Times)

    If MEC failed,it was PP’s ineffectiveness on it as a state body.Funding was very poor,logistically nde worse,analephera kuwapanga empower mokwanila for tripartite elections.
    Wina amati aMaulidi munangoti akhale pampando,basi kukanilira.Owowooo,kuterokoo.
    Anaonera abiti maloko,nawonso kungoti khalani apa yiiiiii,mpaka kukanilira kutsala pangono kuyambitsa nkhondo.

    PP first lost its vice president central due to political carelessness. The party was quick to dismiss him as lazy and useless. Then it lost its vice president south and then North. The party took it easy. Came elections the party got a third position and blamed MEC for that without doing any serious soul searching. Now the party is repeating the same blunders by standing on the way of the very people who want to hold up the reputation of the party on the ground through participation in the by elections……
    Does this party learn from its past mistakes.

  13. Gogo Nagalu says:

    Maulidi is greedy and hungry for Power…There was first of all needed to halt these By-Elections to restructure MEC,We don’t trust MEC that it can deliver cridible Election Results due to lack of commitment and biased nature…Election was rigged in the Current MEC and Arson Fire in the Current MEC, Malawians I think we are not serious in the way Good Governance is being carried on Malawi Soil…

    Firstly Electoral Laws and Systems need to be reformed to accommodate transparency and accountability of Elections…

    The Current MEC has my Vote of no Confidence and Iam showing it exit door it me who vote and not MEC

    Zatopetsa izi Maulidi. Tangoimani. Nkhani yayikulu ndi ya federalism panopo.

  20. John says:

    WHAT DO YOU EXPECT A PARTY THAT IS LED BY A WOMAN? ZA KU KITCHEN BASI!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Maulidi knows that he’s a loser. He cannot win. What he wants is sue the party & its leadership so he gets the compensation. As you know him, is it true that he spent that much? I wonder, if he was struggling to pay rent at Lumbadzi, who had given him millions?

  22. Mbolo Sidwala says:

    That’s the problem of personalizing a party, that’s why mapeto ake it’s either a brother or a son taking over! The only party that follows democratic principles is MCP, it had over 10 people vying for the position of president. Sizinazi.

  23. Devils Advocate says:

    Washing Dirty Linen in Public against Seniors in your own Party simply means that you are Frustrated and has constructively fired yourself from the Party!! Maulidi with his Legal background is acting as End in himself (nde Fumu ndija)

  24. Thomola says:

    Apa ndiye pali ziii. Ooooh!! Zagwera eni Nyasa Times ndiye kuli zii. So many of these comments are tilted towards that side.

  27. Tili Chenene says:

    The party dying like dramatising.

  28. The earlir this woman is removed from PP Leadership, the better. Otherwise, will frustrate all supporters. She is too shallow to lead the party. PP is not someones NGO. More fire !!!!

  29. WOCHI says:

    IT SEEMS MAULIDI YOU ARE NOT HONEST OR WHATSOEVER TO YOUR PARTY !! YOU ARE A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD !! CANT YOU LEARN FROM OTHER PARTIES TO SIT DOWN AND DISCUSS ISSUES WITH YOUR FELLOW PARTY MEMBERS WITHIN YOUR PARTY ???BE MATURED ENOUGH PLEASE !!PEOPLE OF MALAWI NEED DEVELOPMENTS NOT THESE PETTY STORRIES GIVE US A BREAK !!
