Mpinganjira: Acting PP leader

It is now over three months since Banda left the country for her international engagements.

Her PR officier Andekuche Chanthunya said Banda was continuing with her “philanthropy tour of duty”.

He says the former President was still attending to various international engagements, including some related to the Joyce Banda Foundation International (JBFI) Africa Initiative.

PP spokesman Ken Msonda said disclosed that Mpinganjira is now in charge of the party – in the interim capacity – and that PP has also a new secretary general Ibrahim Matola.

“Joyce Banda is still abroad and the party is now being run by Veep Brown Mpinganjira ,” Msonda said as quoted by Malawi24.

Banda is expected to return early next year.

Meanwhile, Mpinganjira is tasked with responsibility of rebuilding the party which had een in power for two years of Banda’s rule after the death of president Bingu wa Mutharika in office.

Mpinganjira, has wealth of political experience. He served years of detention under the one-party dictatorship and helped  in the formation of the United Democratic Front (UDF) where he served  in various ministerial positions under President Bakili Muluzi . He then broke with Muluzi when he was prosecuted on corruption charged which he was cleared by the courts and formed his own party, the National Democratic Alliance(NDA).

In the 2004 presidential election, Mpinganjira placed fourth, receiving only 8.7% of the vote. The party managed to contribute a number of Members of Parliament to the National Assembly among them Billy Kaunda and Mpinganjira himself. Mpinganjira later dissolved the NDA and rejoined UDF.

In the May 2009 presidential election, Mpinganjira contested as running mate to Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential candidate John Tembo .

He joined PP as founding treasure general but lost at the party’s convention but was later coopted to position of vice president after Sidik Mia dumped PP.

  1. Mr. B says:

    Very interesting, this means that bj is second in command rather than chenji golo. Welcome back to UDF Mr. Chenji golo because DPP will never welcome you back.

  2. jimbo says:

    Mr Mpinganjira just loves to flit from party to party. What does he believe in? ~What exactly is his political ideology? Perhaps he is now happy and contended to be Vice President in the PP and is hoping that JB will never return. Clearly for JB her ‘beloved Malawi’ is not high on her agenda or she would be back in the country working hard to improve it instead of gallivanting around the US on her spurious mission.

  7. phunda says:

    All the best BJ, avoid NDA traits but buildthe PP into likeable party . Use the existing resources , trust them and don’t abandon what you for new comers like what JB did which coated the party dearly. Believe in your party and its people. Don’t treat on strangers!!!

  10. MBACHI says:

    It is a good suggestion for northerners to come together and form one strong party.

  11. Peter Kaleso says:

    This is blatant lie,firstly Nyasa Times must be part of machinery to help DPP Government continue with anti Joyce Banda propaganda.this propaganda shows how ignorant PP protagonists are, The Party is divided into four Regions, North, Central, South and East. Each Region has a Party Vice President on different assignment of veep,administration, political,operations except Eastern Region which is represented by newly appointed Secretary General Ibrahim Matola. There is no need for opposition PPneeds no acting President.as JB is the partyPresident.

  26. moniredada says:

    I agree with Ulula, about a month ago I met PP women at 7/11 in Lilongwe one of the women who I know very well told me that they were waiting for JB. I thought she was lying so I waited, sure enough she arrived in a heavuly tinted vehicle without any escort as is accorded a retired head of state, its when I knew that she was hiding from the public!

They use us during campaigns. What has she chosen Mpinganjira not Chihana. Let us build our own chipani, tiuskeso AFORD, kweni balongosi ndi amene amachita dyera kutilowetsa ku zipani za achawa zi.

    1. zizwani says:

      have you forgotten that it is the same Chihana who personally sold Aford to PP? I have never seen a stupid politician in the name of this young Chihana who stood so low supporting distribution of cows and bicycles by the whole government…. shame.

  39. ulula says:

    It is not true that Joyce Banda has been out of the country for 3months, she sneaked into Malawi a month ago and was at Susan Banda’s house in Lilongwe, she also asked some well wishers to escort her to Kasungu where she went to calm irate tenants who had not been paid for months! Some of us know exactly where she is and what she had for supper dzulo! We know who she is in constant contact with thru email or fone and how she funds various leaders – who r busy eating her money while those who stood with r have been completely discarded(exactly what made her lose the elections), Abiti samamva!

  40. Chain Unleashed says:

    Couldn’t stay in the office as President cause of globe trotting, can’t do that now either. Personal gains in the name of Philanthropy.

  41. Chain Unleashed says:

    Koma this reporter…Mpinganjira has worth of political experience: “he served years in detention …” “Prosecuted on corruption charges…” “In 2004 presidential elections he received only 8.7.% of the vote…” Dissolved the NDA…” “Joined PP as founding Treasure General, but lost at the party’s convention….” and the list of this vast experience goes on and on….

    Is it coup dè tà? When JB returns sum of her loyalties wil pretend 2 hv bn doing the work yet they r busy finding ways 2 survive. They hv not bn paid as PP is broke. Brown is a cunning, opportunitist, greedy and shrewd person. Can’t make a gud leader.

  48. Redeemed says:

    Chipani chatha mapulani ichi. Ingovomerani kuti Lady Cashgate Mtila Banda sadzabweranso. Nanga ngati mukuti “she is expected back early next year”, mukuvutikiranji kumuika BJ pa mpando wa acting president?

  52. Nyani wa ku Mwananyani says:

    PP is one of the sad-sack political parties in Malawi, to be sure. And it is delusional to think that anyone, even Superman, can revive that party. Party star and factotum Mpinganjira is now verging on irrelevance: he should find something positive to do with his energy. He’s not getting younger! Asa!
