PP’s Mwenye quits over ‘leadership confusion’

Former ruling People’s Party (PP) Director of Social Affairs Steven Mwenye has resigned from his position and has immediately withdrawn his membership from the party.

Matola: PP leader remains Joyce Banda until 2017 convention

He confirmed the development in an interview with state broadcaster Malawi Broadcasting Corperation (MBC).

Mwenye said he has decided to ditch PP following disagreement that have erupted in the party whereby the Northern Region committe through its chairman Christopher Mzomela Ngwira is claiming former Vice President Khumbo Kachali as the interim leader. The party’s founder and president Joyce Banda has been abroad close to a year now.

Mwenye said the party is currently lacking leadership and management.

“If you ask myself (why I have left PP), its all about poor management,” he told MBC.

He said PP is now “a party at war with itself, bitter accusations and disrespect .”

Mwenye said: “This is not the party that I was involved in creating. Nor is it a party that I want to continue to participate in. I am leaving with no regrets or bitterness towards anyone. I value the many good friends I have made in the PP over the years–on both sides of the current divide.”

He said so many people holding top positions dumped the party after the May general elections because PP lost its direction.

Mwenye suggested that after losing the May 2014 general elections, party executive committee members were supposed to sit down to map the way forward and found the root cause of its failure during the elections.

“After we failed the elections, we could have sat down and discuss what made us fail and to map the way forward so that we should not fail again,” said Mwenye.

Meanwhile, PP has trashed the idea of imposing Khumbo Kachali as the interim President of the party in the absence of Banda.

PP Secretary General Ibrahim Matola says Banda remains the president of the party.

Matola said he was not aware of Mwenye’s resignation.

  2. Denial, denial, denial. Things are falling apart here, there is no way a party leader can leave the party & be in exile for no apparent reasons & expect that things will be ok. After all PP is not a party it’s just angry DPP people who were not happy at one time. MCP or UDF are parties that have seen it all. Malawi, it was a curse to have a woman president, we don’t need that.

    Mwenyae is another confused politician. He has no substance and he can not add any value to any party he is intending to join. I know he is heading to DPP seeking for fortune evidenced by his appearance on DPP Mouth piece (MBC TV). Everyone knows that if someone quits DPP for any other party he can not appear on MBC TV. It is a useless TV station with useless reporters who are always not objective in their work.

    Zikundikomera…and ts funny the way many PP zealots here think all z gonna b fine, the ship z sinking niggaz…

    Ntchito kutukwana DPP, and u r trying to be as gentle as possible, as smart as u can be in not admitting that things r going hay wire in PP. The party was an institution of convenience, the convenience is over now, Time will tell.

    Mr Mwenye is a fortune seeker, period. No.4, what has this story got to do with one’s tribe? Just shows how shallow minded some idiots are – always thinking in tribal lines.

  12. nyavizwazwa says:

    What I see here is that the party has no leadership. Joy would have left the party with someone to takecare. It is like a thing or a garden which has been just abandoned with no body to look after. Any person capable can take care that garden. So this is what Khumbo has done. The only mistake which I see from Khumbo is that previously was looking like wants to go to DPP.

    Digging tribes will not help you fools. There is need to come up with a strategy and plan well. This also enchoes the poor leadership of women. If Joy has trust in her co-workers would have given them a word when going out – running from persecution. A parent will always leave a word to the children. This is rediculous.

    This only shows that PP is a party with poor manifesto and governance rules. How in the world can a leader stay away for a year with the NEC meeting to see the way forward.

  13. Rodgers Banda says:

    Lack of patriotism in the party leads many treasure hunters to quit.scrambles in the party are resolved within. This is the party’s cry for their leader J.B not a seizure of power.The party has its manifesto which it follows. These are the people who cause division in parties

  14. H Kamdidi says:

    This guy is not serious, how can one make decisions based on one issue which just happened last week and NEC is yet to meet on this and the only thing we know is coming from the media. I think the guy already had plans to quite and has been looking for an opportunity to do so. On the other hand it shows lack of maturity on his part and it shows that he was not a true party member but just a supporter who lacked roots hence he has been swayed by a simple wind.
