Former ruling People’s party (PP) has accused President Peter Mutharika and the entire Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leadership of political witch-hunting.
According to PP spokesperson Ken Msonda, DPP is using the ongoing cashgate cases as a tool of trickling down former president Joyce Banda and her party through implicating her in cashgate issues.
Msonda has since urged those who have concrete evidence that the former president was involved in cashgate to present the evidence to Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) and police.
He also accused cash gate convicts who are currently answering charges of providing false information which he believes are being forced by DPP.
Msonda vehemently denied his party’s involvement in cashgate but rather boosted that his party unveiled the looting of public finances.
In an interview with Zodiak Radio when he was featured in Tiuzeni Zoona programme on Sunday, the PP spokesperson claim his party is still strong and that everything is going on smoothly.
This follows recent in-house wrangles that brought divisions on leadership as the party president Joyce Banda has been outside the country for over one year.
Meanwhile, Msonda has appealed to President Mutharika and his government to probe all the people who were involved in the plundering of government finances during the period DPP was ruling under the leadership of the late Bingu wa Mutharika.
