Welcome into DPP: President Mutharika tells Bisnowaty

Most of the politicians who were welcomed by President Peter Mutharika in DPP fold were merely returning to the party they once dumped.

But Bisnowaty, who was elected independent legislator, was aligning with a political party for the first time.

He won in a predominantly Malawi Congress Party (MCP) constituency but his joining of DPP will strengthen the party in the area too,

Bisnowaty told Nyasa Times in an interview after being welcomed in DPP that  he had joined the party after extensive and thorough consultation with chiefs and block leaders in his constituency.

“I have decided to join DPP after taking a huge amount of thought  and noting that it is the only party which is fulfilling its manifesto.  For example the party has managed to tarmac  Chenichi Senti road in my area and the same government is planning to tap water from Lake Malawi to capital city , these are major projects which will transform the entire constituency,” Bisnowaty told Nyasa Times reporter.

Bisnowaty said the DPP led government has lined up good policies and plans which will completely end electricity problems in the country and he wants to help the administration in its development agaenda.

“There will be nothing to change I will continue serving my constituency as usual. But I am now DPP,”  he said. “Together we  can develop Malawi/

Bisnowaty was introduced to the DPP by President Mutharika at a Masintha ground political rally on Sunday.

Some of the notable people that have joined the party include: Binton Kumtsaila, Davis Katsonga, Salim Bagus, Henry Mumba, Clara Makungwa, David Bisnowaty and Etta Banda.

Speaking on behalf of the people that have joined DPP, Ken Msonda who was  Publicity Secretary for People’s Party commended the President for allowing them to join the party without taking all the differences that were there.

“I want to thank the president for the mature political he has shown for allowing us to work together to develop the nation. We want to promise you that more people are coming to join the party,” he said.

Msonda asked DPP authorities to be sending them for duties and promised that they will do.

And DPP Secretary General, Francis Mphepo said more people want to join ruling party.

He said the DPP is the only party with a mission and vision to transform the country.

Mphepo said the decision to join the DPP is the best move which should never be regrettable.

Kikikiki: DPP showing off like this in the very backyard of MCP! When is anyone “defecting” to the latter? DPP slowly, but surely, expanding their base in the country, while relatively speaking, MCP’s base is shrinking.
o’Chakwera, now is the time to show political organization skills, as 2019 is just around the corner. Otherwise we may soon see active MCPers, MPs etc, walking the path to the ruling Party. We actually DO need competition for democracy to survive, never mind thrive.


Only crooks will join the DPP.


Msonda said ” give us work and we will do it” meaning he is looking for post because you cant be given a job without a responsibility. Note that the old henchmen in DPP are unhappy. They are feeling threatened by the strangers Bisonowaty has a drug company and he is looking for a market with MoH. Remember a complaint he made at late Bingo’s public rally that MoH was denying him market for substandard medicine.

Ministry of Health is the problem with this man you call Bisnowaty.What development will he champion?Syphoning government money through the supply of fake medical equipment.Getting medical equipment service contract and failing to delivery.He should not join DPP to continue stealing.

Typical Malawians. NO shame give them little money they take it. DDP is afraid. Increasing the number is not solution. DDP has already seen that it will be difficult to steal but as government they can. Bisnowaty is a fortunate seeker not a loving man for Malawi. Dont forget he is jews. Why Hitler hatet Jews? Do Malawians want DDP? Do u want suffering to continue? Youth of Malawi please make a change for your future. Vote for MCP. Dont make any mistake 2019. NO old michonas. NO corrupted gurus. Chooende asani MCP is the only party left. DDP is… Read more »

Abwana mpaka kuvotera MCP??? Chakwera waoneka kuti is selfish. Kabwira tikukudikira ku DDP

I rarely comment on Politics in Malawi because it can get you killed given the nature of the DPP politics-given that they chose CHIEF KILLER DAUSI, MKHITO to guide their power to eliminate their critics. Examples are quite rampant-especially when one wants to exercise their freedom of expression which is their natural birthright. Take the example of the young man CHASOWA, NJAUJU, KUNDONTONI, ZUZA,MBENDERA, BAKUWA and the several attempts they have made to eliminate the VP.It also clearly shows that most of the people that are running the DPP when most of us were skipping classes at Chanco to fight… Read more »

Well said Dengulanga. The unfortunate part of our politics is that those who are finding life hardest do no understand anything. They can not link their stinking poverty with the government policies. How many times do we want the Lord God to intervene in our politics? We have the right to choose our destiny but we behave like a fool who feel thirst in the abundance of water. I agree that DPP will never take us to the promised land if at we have one. We really need a revolution. How and where it will come from I do not… Read more »

End of Bisnowaty and this other man Katsonga is mentally disturbed now dpp yapata dzitsilu heee Kumtsaila ndiye mbuzi


Kodi mazungu uyu akubweretsadi zitukuko kwa achewa awo?Ndi olowa gule iyeyu koma?



This Bisnowaty wont win again. Not because he joins DPP but because he is not popular in the area. Very selfish and greedy man.
