Uladi accepts ‘change goal’ in PP leadership

Uladi Mussa, appointed by former president Joyce Banda to act as People’s Party president says his first task is to unite and rebuild the party feared to be on the verge of collapse due to prolonged power vacuum.

“I will work to unite and rebuild the party, galvanise its membership ahead of the 2019 elections,” said Mussa in an interview accepting the position.

While President Peter Mutharika and Malawi Congress Party president Lazarus Chakwera have openly said they will stand in the 2019 general election, Banda has remained quiet on the issue.

“We should all be united for a common purpose,” said Mussa, extending an olive branch to Christopher Mzomera Ngwira, a fired regional governor for the north who is leading a faction within the party that is campagning for Khumbo Kachale to take over from Banda, an issue that has grossly divided PP.

Uladi said soon he will embark on a countrywide tour to sell the ideas and ideologies of the party to kickstart the rebuilding of the once mighty party which nearly destroyed the Democratic Progressive Party when some key and senior members flocked to the PP enmasse soon after the death of late president Bingu wa Mutharika.

Mussa insisted Banda would come back soon to participate in active politics and subsquently in 2019 polls, saying after she lost the 2014 elections, she wanted to rest and reflect on how she lost the polls.

The Northerners will surely now band together and a) high jack PP b) break away en mass, and form their own “party”, or c) join MCP, with the hope that Party can win in 2019, and may give some (inconsequential) position to MPs from that region. One thing is for sure: they will not just sit idle and see their influence wither away, since PP’s utter defeat. When PP, and by extension the government, was really run by them in a vengeful manner against DPP and southerners: For some inexplicable reason, northern politicians believe the aLhomwe, especially, as their nemesis,… Read more »
