PP disowns Mzomera on Khumbo’s leadership

The People’s Party (PP) has disowned remarks made by its Provincial Chairman for the North, Reverend Mzomera Ngwira, the former vice president Khumbo Kachali has been installed as interim leader of the party in the absence of Joyce Banda who is currently abroad.

Mzomera: His remarks of Khumbo's leadership are disonwed by PP

Mzomera: His remarks of Khumbo’s leadership are disonwed by PP

Ngwira said in Mzuzu on Monday when welcoming Kachali back in the PP fold that the former vice president is now the interim leader of PP.

He claimed the decision was reached at a National Executive Committee meeting.

But Kachali played down such assertions, saying he has come back in frontline PP politics to help rebuild the party and that Banda remained the legitimate leader.

In a media statement signed by the party’s Secretary General Ibrahim Matola made available to Nyasa Times on Tuesday, the PP says Ngwira’s claims do not reflect the position of the party in as far as its leadership is concerned.

Matola explained that PP held a regional party meeting in Mzuzu last Monday to welcome back Kachali as a vice president not as a replacement to Joyce Banda.

“It is only at the Party’s National Convention that decisions like this one are made. The People’s Party constitution stipulates that the President shall hold office for a period of five years. Joyce Banda’s mandate runs up to 2017 when her position shall be up for grabs,” the statement reads in part.

However, the party expressed delight at the return of Kachali and at his commitment to help the party “grow to greater heights.”

  3. Thouht of All says:

    Frankly speaking,Khumbo Kachali deserves NOT that position of being a veep of PP again. He is a NOMAD.He sticks to the party only when he knows that he will have a position. Whenever other better figures overtake him, he flees for other greener pasture. Kachali was in DPP, went to PP, then baack to DPP with the hope that he will be given a post and now he says that he has gone back to PP,aaaaa, what a lie. he must have gone there for riches and not to build Malawi. Pliz pp choose better figures NOT just history. Let by-gones be by-gones

  7. Charombanthu says:

    Overzealous Mzomera should be strongly disciplined. Even Kachali himself has stated that JB remains the leader of the party.

  11. mtumbuka1 says:

    Pp is not a party for tumbukas because it was not formed by tumbukas. Malawi congress party ( mcp) is the party that was formed by people of the north, the Orton chirwwas and his group. He was the first president of mcp and when they asked kamuzu to come and lead the party he voluntarily stepped aside and gave the mantle of leadership to kamuzu. It’s unfortunate today mcp is regarded party for chewa people just because of John tembo( a mere translator of kamuzu) pp is a party formed in a hurry and out of desperation.

    Let the information of national interest for the party come from one central point to avoid confusing the electorates/members.

  29. Chindani Bwino says:

    Mzomera Ngwira is a Mad Man. Never does he care about the Malawi nation. Everytime, he thinks about the Northern Region. He is a typical Tumbuka with a Mbwenu mentality. That said, wamisala anaona nkhondo. Pokhapa Mzomera Ngwira waitha. Let the games begin.

  30. Concerned Malawian says:

    I wonder whether something good can come out of this guy

  31. Mhesha says:

    Iwe Mzomera don’t drag all Northerners into rubberstamping your Mzimba interest. For a long time Mzimba guys have been longing to lead the region by showcasing their political hunger. This has now led to the snatching of PP leadership. They can’t rejoin Aford because they feel it’s for Tumbukas from Rumphi. They’re tribalists who cannot coexist within their region genuinely.

    Mzomera Ngwira is a disaster. He has no Censorship board when talking, like Mrs Kaliati and Nankhumwa.

  37. CONGO MAFIA says:

    What it is happening in Malawi is abuse of fondamental principles of democracy. It is hard to know who is genuine politician in Malawi. Yesterday khumbo was right hand man of JB. At the dawn of election he was kicked out of PP at the expense of Gwengwe. Later on the latter dumped PP for MCP when PP needed him the most after losing the election. Now Khumbo is going back to the same party that humiliated him. It is so confusing. I wish we were still under one party state.

  40. Kanonono says:

    One thing interesting about Malawi is that every time is politicking time. No one thinks about development in Malawi but everyone thinks about politics and corruption. Yes, drive from Karonga to Mzuzu and you will realize how police officers – from traffic to immigration – and their customs counterparts speak corruption without a winch of shame on their faces. This is why Malawi will never take off from its current development stage. The president is busy selling banks so as to get money for his 2019 political campaigns and the timid opposition parties are busy scrambling for political positions instead of opening their eyes with an intent of seeing how the electorates are suffering at the hands of corrupt policemen and medical personnel. Probably, Malawi qualifies to be called a ‘failed state’.

    SHAME. REV NGWIRA HOW YOU DO THINGS RAISES A LOT QUESTIONS IF YOU ARE ABLE TO RUN A CHURCH. YOU DO THINGS AS IF YOU ARE A MAFIA AND NOT A CHRISTIAN. ARE YOU A PASTOR OR A POSTER>?

  43. ziphaliwali says:

    This is the demise of PP, by taking Kachali it is proof that the party is not ready to change thus the failure to change the top brass. The wamuyaya syndrome to the bone marrow is destroying Malawian politics, what a shame. Change is what we believe in not over-recycled failed politicians.

  44. Phantom Enchanter says:

    In the event the President is not around who assumes leadership of the party???or is she running the party from abroad??????

  45. PP Die Hard says:

    Ngwira ndi KK alandira chi banzi from DPP in order to destroy PP which is still a threat to DPP with big man dreaming landslide victory in 2019.

  46. Chamba Chalero says:

    THIS IS A VERY GOOD DECISION FOR THE PARTY. YOU CAN RUN AWAY AND LIVE LUXURIOUSLY WHILE OTHERS ARE WARMING THE SEAT FOR YOU AND FACING THE TUNE ON TORMENTS. NORTHERNERS DON’T LOOSEN THE GRIP ON THE SEAT AT ANY COST.
    THIS WILL OBVIOUSLY HELP CHANGE THE POLITICAL LANDSCAPE. KEEP UP THE FIRE BURNING THE JEWS OF MALAWI.
