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.

    Look at the picture: All of them failed to make it to parliament, but they are planning to oust an elected MP, Mzomera Ngwira. Very funny.

  14. Harry says:

    Godfearing is true.

  15. Matandani says:

    Ngwira was saying that,the Former President Joyce Banda should put someone as a caretaker in her absence and even mentioned KK.So Madam JB has people and the party a caretaker as requested by Ngwira and under carpet.What is wrong now.

  16. B Matsautso says:

    Pipiiiiiiiiii yanyamukaaaaaaaaaa. Dothi ku dothi pfumbi ku pfumbi kkkkkk

  17. GODFEARING PERSON says:

    It is unfortunate that we waste our time on people like Mzomera Ngwira, Khumbo Kachali, Joyce Banda and others. You can see that their combination is a disaster. It is very easy for evil people to gang up and fight against someone. But it is difficult for evil people to work together for a common good.

  18. ISSA KABUDULA says:

    Care must be taken chita chpanichi tikuchioa – you don’t fight each other, its like akuba the time they start fighting, they are close to jail. This party which tested Nsanjika Palace by accident as some people say – will disappear if care is not taken. Free advice timadya zathu.
