Msonda quits PP, takes sabbatical leave from frontline politics

Trusted and faithful opposition Peoples Party (PP)  spokesperson Ken Msonda has resigned from his position and withdrawn his membership from the party.

Msonda: Steps aside

Msonda: Steps aside

Msonda took to his Facebook timeline to announce that he is taking an indefinite sabbatical leave from active politics.

He says this is part of his 2019 political strategy to take a break from front line party politics and to reflect on his spiritual life and political party journey.

“I will bounce back after resting to connect to Rumphi east constituency. In view of the above, I have tendered my resignation from the Peoples Party with immediate effect,” says Msonda.

Peoples Party senior officials could not be reached for comment but the resignation comes barely days after Msonda alleged on Facebook that the rulling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) was dangling a K3 million offer to him to join the DPP and he said the money was too little for a person of his calibre.

Other political commentators say the DPP is making political strategies to have Kamlepo Kalua out of Rumphi east constituency in 2019 parliamentary elections.

Kalua, a fierce and uncompromising critic of President Peter Mutharika and the DPP faces fierce competition in the constituency from DPP director of Legal Affairs Charles Mhango who has mounted a fierce political campaign in the area.

Msonda comes from the same area.

Takulandilani ku Utumiki wanu wa Ambuye umene tinali kuusowa. You are real Ken Msonda when on the pulpit of the Lord. Not the podium of politics where you lost much of your respect.

Sabbatical leave from politics? Kkk. Tomorrow he has formed his own party. We have treated party presidents like semi gods and do not want to hear anything wrong with them. Wake up they have been using you bwana Msonda. Its too late for a wake up call. You should have taken a sabbatical leave a few years ago.

O……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………O Koma ngati panali kadziotche wa PP, nde ndi Msonda yu. . . . When Msonda spoke about PP, it was unthinkable he could jump off the ship, some day. . . . His choice of word when defending the party scintillated a man who was ready to die for PP. . . . The way he praised JB with a long title “Her Excellency Dr Madam bla bla bla . . . “, its almost incomprehensible Msonda could leave PP. …………………………………………………………………. Now, since the seemingly impossible has happened; one thing is clear . . . . . . In… Read more »

Mr Central, how can you involve God in this Msonda nonsense? Mulungu mukumuyesa woseweretsa eti? Was it not Amayi who was carelessly involving God in the death of Bingu? In every rally she conducted she said God planned the death of Bingu so that she goes into power and save Malawians. Because of this nasty misuse of the Almighty she was thrown to position 3 despite being the ruling party. This time you Central are at it again. What has Msonda betrayed? Or are afraid that he has some secrets about Amayi which you fear will be put on the… Read more »
