PP expels Mzomera Ngwira for ‘undemocratic line of thinking’

Reverend Christopher Mzomera Ngwira, MP who was provincial governor (North) of the former ruling People’s Party (PP) has been expelled from the party following allegations that he was involved in the fracas which ended in violence at a meeting in Mzuzu on Sunday.

PP Secretary General, Ibrahim Matola, told a news conference in the capital Lilongwe on Tuesday that Ngwira  has been booted out of  the party for what the party calls is Ngwira’s “undemocratic line of thinking”.

Matola said Ngwira was not elected at a convention but appointed after previous chairpersons left the party.

He also said Ngwira is no longer party member and ceases to represent PP in Parliament when meeting resumes on February 22 2016.

“People’s Party practises intra-party democracy, we encourage freedom of expression and opinion suffice to say that democracy is not an open cheque to do things the way you want or think. Rev Christopher Mzomera Ngwira’s undemocratic line of thinking can no longer be tolerated, hence his expulsion,” Matola said.

PP has since disclosed that it intends to pen the Speaker of the National Assembly to reallocate Ngwira in Parliament when meeting resumes .

“It is better to have one or two MPs who are vibrant and loyal and contribute effectively in the House than one who brings problems to the party,” he said.

Ngwira, who is Mzimba Hora member of Parliament (MP) and held a national executive committee (NEC) position in PP, declared that former vice-president Khumbo Kachali should lead PP in the absence of founding president Joyce Banda.

PP  has replaced Ngwira  with Sherbone Mchizi in an acting capacity.
