Malawi Congress Party (MCP) lawmaker Alekeni Menyani has hit out at “nonsense” suggestions that he may work with the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration.
Menyani told Nyasa Times in an interview on Tuesday evening that reports that President Peter Mutharika is luring him with a cabinet post to work with DPP should not be entertained.
“It is just nonsense,” said the youthful lawmaker.
“I am MCP, loyal to my party and its leadership. I cannot betray my constituents who elected me on MCP ticket and I cannot quit MCP.
“I have had so many text messages, phone calls about it – the rumour that I am going to DPP – I only read about it like everyone else,” he explained to Nyasa Times.
“I cannot join DPP at all, at all. I am MCP all the way. In fact the future for Malawi is MCP,” he added.
Menyani accused the DPP of attempts to divide MCP and weaken the opposition, saying he will not prostitute himself politically to suffocate democracy.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
