Aford attacks DPP: Mwenifumbo says North Malawi is the bedrock of politics

The Alliance For Democracy (AFORD) has on Wednesday attacked the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government for what it claims plot to kill the political future of northerners, saying they are reviving the party to put their stamp on national politics.

Crowds at Aford rally

 Member of Parliament and prominent frontline troop of  Aford, Frank Mwenifumbo said  in Karonga during the political rally organized by AFORD president Enoch Chihana.
The comments were in reaction to DPP secretary general Gridezer Jeffrey wa Jeffrey that  that northerners will not produce president.
Mwenifumbo said despite being despised  or undermined, northerners are the backbone of the county’s political history.
“Frontline troops of pro-democracy were mostly northernors championed by Aford’s founding president late Chakufwa Tom Chihana,” he said.
“May be Jeffrey is not aware about the political history of this country. Let me school her, we are the backbone,” said Mwenifumbo
According to him, the first person to formulate a political party in the country, Nyasaland African Congress was Levie Mumba from the north, the one who formulate the country’s main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Orton Chirwa was from the north and that the one who brought multiparty in the country Chakufwa Thom Chihana was from the north.
Former DPP national campaign director Bessie Chirambo described President Peter Mutharika leadership undemocratic, arrogant, regionalistic and tribalistic.
According to her, Mutharika believe that he can run government with people from the Lomwe belt only.
“Thus why I decided to dump DPP and join AFORD. I don’t want to be Yudas Iscariot like other northerners who are still with DPP,” she said.
Hundreds of Karonga residents attended the rally.

I am not a proud Malawian now than I was during my primary school years, during the days of Kamuzu: when Malawi was really a one nation, with hard working people, free from rampant corruption, with promising youth and not brainwashed ones. I was really proud of this country then when the national team was performing wonders in whipping our neighbours, when students could go to Unirvesity of Malawi on merit, when ministers were dedicated servants of the nation and not thieves, when I was not feeling ashamed to pronounce my Malawian Identity to tourists in Mangochi district when we… Read more »

Palibe chanu mngolira simuzalamula mpaka kale.

@Droba Gabi. The problem of ignorance, which is rampant in the South coupled with high poverty levels, is that ignorant people fail to put things in their perspective. Aford leaders r not talking of ruling Malawi. They r talking of northerners who v greatly contributed to the political change in the country. If I may ask u, if u come from where the president comes from, what is it that u n your family v benefited from the presidency of APM?
