Peoples Party official has hited party founder Joyce Banda, who has been in self imposed exile since she lost the presidential election in 2014, will be coming soon to prepare for the 2019 general election.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
