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Trusted and faithful opposition Peoples Party (PP)  spokesperson Ken Msonda has resigned from his position and withdrawn his membership from the party.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

  3. Malawi says:

    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.

  4. BTN says:

    Political transmogrifications, thats the way to go Msonda bravo. You need money,not so? If there is someone there who look forward to be saved by politicians i’m sorry you are wasting your time, these guvs have no time for you except there bellies.

  5. MAGANG`A says:

    Bwana Msonda mwachita bwino because seriously chipani cha PP munatsala nacho nokha basi. And inu ndiamene mumatukwanidwa while amene mumawapanga defend ali busy kudya ma sausages ku America,RSA and UK. So apapa bambo Msonda mwabwera bwino kwabasi “Zikatentha ndibwino kuzitaya basi”

    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 other spheres of life, just as in politics; no any mechanical relationship is ever permanent.
    The only real hence permanent relationship is blood relationship since you cant “disbrother” or “dissister” or “dismother” or “disfather” someone, even if they are as useless as they came into being.
    . . . Corrorally, it’s important when we enter into such mechanical relationships as love, marriage, business contracts etc, to never trust or love too much hence expose yourself to risk of a heartbreak coz that too much can hurt you so much, when such times for parting as these, come; in cosmetic hence impermanent relationships.

    Its important to keep in mind that, “The hottest love, has the coldest end.” – Socrates
    . . . I can promise you that PP shall miss Msonda.
    . . .The guy was dedicated to a party [that almost does not exist].

    AKUFUMBATITSA ZINGATI IWE MSONDA?

    I KNOW THIS IS DPP PLAN!

    NEXT TIME WE WILL HEAR MSONDA WALOWA DPP….

    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 open? Your worry should be the death of the party not about the departure of Msonda. Some people think when a person is talkative or vocal he can make the party strong. Take a leaf from Msonda himself and Kamlepo in PP. Despite being too vocal the party is sinking daily. You can clap hands for Kamlepo’s nuisance but nothing will make PP strong or weaken the DPP. It is a failed party and you should brave for more defections.

  9. mgoloso says:

    Nyasa Times, you always contribute to our party’s (MCP) downfall – stop siding with us in the opposition coz our party is seen to be stupid as Nyasa Times. So, change your approach – we are not happy.

  10. ziwindi says:

    LMAO! Please Mr Msonda just GO!

  11. Kenkkk says:

    Ken, suppose they gave you too much, significantly greater than 3mn, would you join dpp? So you can be bought also, it is just a question of how much. That is the politics that is failing the country, self enrichment by whatever means.

    Join mcp, we need a strong person there or be independent. So too is my advice to kamlepo. Pp is or will be dead in the north come 2019.

    1. opposition says:

      Shame on Msonda. How can you say K3M was too little? Are you for sale? if this is the kind of leadership we have in Malawi, the country is doomed. We do not have political leaders but political Mahule who will be used without Chishango if the price is right. K3M was with Chishango but DPP wanted him without Chishango.

  12. Sibweni says:

    Point of correction, Charles Mhango comes from Rumphi Central where the current MP is Enock Chihana not Rumphi East

  13. mgoloso says:

    Ifetu timangokuyang’ana Ken – timadziwa kuti nthawi yotopa nazo ikwana. It is not easy to always be on the opposing side. Ask JZU Tembo – nayenso nthawi itakwana anadzisiya.

    Opposing for 10 years consecutively could deteriorate your health physically, psychologically, emotionally, spiritually as well as morally.

    Kumaganiza mozama ngati mwamuna weniweni, otherwise ukanafa ndi mtima ena monga a Mayi akudyelera ku America.

    Congrats Ken

  14. Harawara says:

    So you successfully negotiated the offer from DPP. How much are you worth, a little than K3m I guess. A cheep politician with a short political life span !!!!

  15. mgoloso says:

    All the best Ken – kukhala ku opposition sichinthu chophweka coz umasutsa koma chowona chake ukuchidziwa just to please your political masters, which is so painful.

    Kapume bwino. Ndale sadya, and never sacrifice your personal image for the sake of other people who do not even appreciate. Come back with fresh approach of dealing with political issues. ApfJs

    He says the DPP dangled 3 million to him. Was Msonda any threat to the DPP? What has Msonda contributed to his party, PP? What will PP miss from Msonda? He was a seasonal lier. He has lied about Amayi coming home till he could realize that he has lied too much and he can eventually be addicted to these lies. If it is true that the DPP dangled the 3 million to him then he has mistimed quitting politics now because people will speculate that he has now accepted the offer silencing him completely. Malawians who follow politics recall that there was Change Goal, Uladi Mussa whom the DPP got rid of at a time when he thought he was needed most . Gwanda Chakwamba at a time when most parties needed him to help win votes from the Lower states the DPP threw him away. Despite doing this to these politicians the DPP faired well in the elections meaning their expulsion did not affect the party. Now you are talking of Msonda who despite being a senior member in his party failed to grab a Parliamentary seat in his own home. And he claims the DPP needed him at a loss of 3 million, what a ridicule. Msonda has seen that there is no future for the party especially this time when there are rumours to join hands with the crumbling MCP. Now Winston Msowoya what advice can you give to the opposition so that it should at least give hope to its supporters before they hung? Because with these scenarios many will commit the uncommittable especially the likes of you Msowoya, Analyst, Kokani, and those who are holding machetes to slaughter the DPP. The DPP does not need even Chakwera to join it. It has a mature campaign strategy which all parties lack. For readers’ information, I am not a Lhomwe as alleged by Msowoya in a certain post. I come from the Centre in the LAKE SHORE border district between Northern and Central. Got it?

    1. Vimavi says:

      MBC propaganda spewed through their childface toting journalist is not going to make the mighty MCP tremble or crumble.Watch my prophecy.

  17. Mapwevupwevu says:

    DPP offered him K3mita? Ndiye kubetsatu! Watha uyu palibe angamupange offer olo 2 Tambala!

  18. Mphondo Zagadabuka says:

    Lutanga we uli mzeleza, Kamulepo for that seat in 2019. Iwe tingakuvoterapo yayi, jiiiiiiiii

  19. Big Dance says:

    Man Msonda apatu ndiye mwaitha. Tabwerani mwansanga kuo ku DPP tichite chitukuko ku Rumphi east osati mad man Kalua.

  20. Central says:

    I don’t think Msonda can dare be a “Judas Iscariot” to Malawians and could betray us for money just like that……..!! I am happy he is talking of wanting to reflect on his spiritual life…………………!!

    Be careful Msonda, look, based on records, there was a figure 3 in the amount of money Judas received from the enemies of the Lord!! Here we go right now, what we are getting is that you are also getting a money figure with the number 3 in it!

    Let us pray: “Lord, I know You are still beside Mr Msonda, but help Mr Msonda to be more aware of Your presence and what You might be trying to teach us through this Malawi corruption crisis. Protect Mr Msonda and us all oh Lord. Lord Jesus, we know that You desire good for Malawians! Please guide and direct our path. Provide Your strength, hope, and courage to Malawians as we walk through the rampant corruption crisis I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.” Thank you Jesus…………………….!
