PP meeting endorses Mia, Fatchi : Malawi ex-ruling party in its ‘deepest crisis’

In the battle for thE soul of former ruling People’s Party (PP) the leadership confusion rages on as some members of the southern region committee have agreed to install former minister Sidik Mia and Blantyre-based businessperson Caesar Fatchi as interim leaders.

 Sidik Mia: Resigned as PP vice president but some members want him back

Sidik Mia: Resigned as PP vice president but some members want him back

Mia resigned from PP before the 2014 elections and endorsed United Democratic Front (UDF) candidate Atupele Muluzi who lost to President Peter Mutharika but they are now in governing pact.

The lower shire political giant announced that he had quit frontline politics and concentrating on his businesses.

But a meeting of some PP officials at Sunnyside in Blantyre on Wednesday, agreed to hola a rally and announce interim leadership of PP with Mia and Fatchi.

Fatchi, who wanted to contest with founder and party leader, Joyce Banda at the (PP) national conference, confirmed he had been approached to be its vice president for the south.

Previous holder of PP vice president (south), Brown Mpinganjira resigned from the party.

PP spokesman Ken Msonda said the party has heard about the rumours.

“Those who don’t wish us well are just trying ti bring confusion,” he said.

The development comes after party’s regional provincial chair (North) Christopher Ngwira controversially announced that former Malawi vice-president Khumbo Kachali is PP interim president.

Ngwira said the absence of party leader Joyce Banda is heavily affecting PP growth.

But PP secretary general Ibrahim Matola disowned Ngwira’s remarks on Kachali’s leadership. Kachali himself also recognised Banda as legitimate president of the party.

Banda left the country soon after losing the 2014 presidential elections.

Political analysts have called on PP to come together and solve the  existential threat to its existence.

The analysts says this could be the greatest crisis PP has faced since it was created.

Matola admitted the party needed a “thorough rethink”, but denied claims it was experiencing its worse crisis.

He said the party will address the issues.

In bid to rebuild the party, it will mean PP divides rather than unites in the short term in its search for answers, between new and old members.

  22. phodo says:

    Is it north vs south or Tumbukas vs the Muslims/Yaos? Anyway Chikhwawa and Mzimba have made it. What about Mulanje, Thyolo, Lilongwe, Kasungu etc. Please can you Have a share on leadership of PP. Koma abiti namaloko. Apo otogona apo. Taona dilamala watisyira kuno. Ken Msonda atolephera kulankhulapo. Ken Msonda wangoti duuuuuu. Ukatoliratu ndodo yaufumu ija. Sutothawa apo. Ubwere udazaone handwriting yako pa ma Cheke a standard bank kuno. Hahahaha. Mr Richard Banda the Barister , how can you harbour the cashgater?

  23. chibuntu oracle says:

    This is good news. Mai banda was a fine leader in her potential – she was a woman but a man in disguise. As for our current president we know his situation. We don’t need women misquarading to be men as leaders. Mia is a lion of politics. Men of wisdom say, an army of sheep led by a lion is more ought to be successful than an army of lions led by a sheep kkkkkk. pp will be the only non racial and non sexism party we have witnessed in this country. In this modern world these are signs of progression. go pp! Enough with the neandathors and barbarians trying they’re luck in politics!

  24. K. C. Msonda, PP PUBLICITY SECRETARY says:

    These allegations are unfounded and baseless; undemocratic line of the thought and rumors being fabricated by those who don’t wish us well to confuse our party followers and divert peoples attention from numerous economic and social challenges currently affecting our nation and the DPP administration’s failure to address these challenges.
    Peoples Party Constitution stipulates that HE Dr. Joyce Banda is the party President till we hold another convention in 2017. Those willing to re-join or joining the party should emulate Rt Hon Hestings Khumbo Kachali political maturity by rejoining or joining the party as members.
    Those vying for party leadership should wait for the convention in 2017.

  25. Big papa says:

    Mia iz coured so pp you must be very carefull with this so called political giant from lower states.

  26. Nalero says:

    Good strategy. Chipani ichi nde chidzagwire ntchito ndi MCP kukubweraku! Tikusapotani ife osadandaula. We need to start strategizing now.

  27. Mhesha says:

    You want Mia’s money???

  28. Gas Machine Head says:

    The People’s Party in total disarray. This holds very well with the party’s logo and symbol: An open lock. Probably it needs to be locked. Things for apart, the centre cannot hold. JB ndiye anabanduka kalekale, she is seeking asylum in South Africa, alongside millions of Somalis and other Africans from the war-torn horn of Africa. She had been kwa T.B Joshua ahead of the elections (who has also gone AWOL following the coming of a new no nonsense Buhari government), and she is now seeking solace in “Profit” Bishiri. Simultaneously, her Poeple’s Party is all over the place like a headless chicken. Munaonjeza umbava. Musova. kkkkkkk

  29. agnes wanzeru says:

    PP strategy imeneyi ili bwino kwambiri. Chifukwa kuti mudikire convention muchedwa. At the moment leadership is needed in all the three regions. I mean leaders with resourcesto run the party. A Mia ndi aKhumbo mwalandiridwanso ku PP.

  30. The real ujeni says:

    Palibe nkhani apa, this is side show, rumours for that matter, probably orchestrated by DPP failures. Our focus should be on DPP and Peter Mutharika, these people are destroying the country at a fast pace. Forget PP, they are not ruling, reporters do us a favour and focus on what the ruling party is doing. How can a country develop without electricity for example.

  31. ngongoliwa says:

    This is actually what happens to bequeath. Please Mrs Namaloko come back and sort out this mapwevupwevu in your party.Why hiding? Those days of exiles or asylum seeking are gone in Malawi. Why mid night six did not run away. You are a victim of fear of unknown.

  32. Willie Chimseu says:

    Mia can be a very good replacement of JB not nganya KK for the orange camp.

  33. namatikitiki says:

    Yalakwa, muike Mia koma vice president asakhale Fatchi chifukwa onse ndiochokela boma limodzi. Tadikilani convention, bwanji mukuthamanga magazI?

  34. john says:

    What is the Secretary General as CEO doing?This is sad for the Party

  35. Kumbire adanka nawo, kanthu kali n’mwini, kanthu nkako uvundukula nupenya. Vuto la chipani cha munthu m’modzi ndi limeneli, mwini wake adayambitsa chipanichi atapsa mtima, inu mumangotsatira. Lero wakuthawirani, muziona, mudatsinkha ndalama zaboma inu.
