 Banda may seek a comeback

Newly appointed Peoples Party northern region governor Makwenda Chunga has become the latest party official to comment of Banda’s return to Malawi in months.

“She will be coming, though I cannot say when but for sure she will vie for the presidency in the 2019 elections and she will win,” he said.

Banda lost the 2014 presidential election to Peter Mutharika and came a distant third after Malawi Congress Party leader Lazarus Chakwera.

She left Malawi just days after the polls in what people say she was running away from prosecution in connection with the infamous K30 billion cashgate, allegations she denies.

Chunga said the Peoples Party is as strong as before and has chances of coming back to power.

The party has suffered massive defections to other parties since losing the election as well as in fighting for positions since Banda decided to be in self imposed exile, reportedly in South Africa.

    JB can win as Escom is making the DPP unpopular through blackouts under her leadership blackouts were not this bad. Apm take this issue seriously as DPP popularity is very low due to blackouts which go for 16 hours a day

    Musatinyase apa palibe wanena kuti akumufuna kapena sakumufuna. Malawi is her home if she wants let her come. Whom are you briefing kuti Joyce Banda akubwera? Popita anatsanzika ndani kuti akupita kunja?

    Does madam not have other things to do. She was well tried. She had all the resources at her disposal in the previous election. She could have earned a sympathy vote as a woman presidential candidate and as the incumbent. But what happened? She had disappointed the electorate. She never listened to the advice given her. She danced only to her tune. The former president, Dr. Bakili already said it, “Amalawi kuyiwala nsanga.” It is not a virtue. It is something negative. We lose the institutional memory and become victims to re-cycled politicians because of short memory.
    Where is Amama? She ran away from persecution? She does not know how Malawians are suffering now. She is far away. Anatithawira kuti “musovenge”.. And here is someone making noise for her! Give us better choices for the future. We tried you… God gave you(PP) the mantle. And… you watched it snatched. Just forget it.

    1. mudzalila says:

      Welcome back madam and take over the reigns of this countryfrom these incompetent leaders! You will win!

      1. Mtaumbo says:
