Mwenifumbo: Matter reported to police

The incident happened at Byte Lodge in Area 47, Lilongwe, where the meeting was taking place ahead of the of the party’s convention to be held on December 16.
The thugs in question are believed to be the drivers of the party’s president Enoch Chihana.
According to Frank Tumpale Mwenefumbo, parliamentarian for Karonga Central, the incident happened in full view of Chihana.

“As we were seated, Kamoto was asked to go out. While there unknown thugs descended on him and beat him up badly. They went ahead to beat up Secretary General Litchi. The party’s president, who was there has not even condemned the incident,” said Mwenifumbo.

Mwenefumbo, who has already expressed interest to contest for the party’s presidency, said the matter has been reported to Lingadzi Police in the Capital City.

There is power struggle within the party that has led to delay in holding it’s convention.

Litchi and Kamoto are largely seen to be pro-Mwenefumbo, who is pushing for change in the party.

Chihana called for emergency meeting few days after his advisor penned and advising him to tread carefully in his political career if he really wants to maintain his position in the party.

Always I hear about DPP that it’s the most violent Party but today I think that it’s not gonna be the same. Violence has got no place in our society but it looks like politicians of all the parties that’s what 5 hey always need.


The DPP gurus bits critics. Dpp wants everyone to support its ideologies, whether good or bad. DPP is a violent party


Atumbuka penapake mumandigwetsa ulesi, you mean you can resolve your differences through fighting ?, very sad indeed, mtundu ochititsa manyazi,mumakhala ngati anthu amfundo koma zivundi zenizeni.

Wake Up North

Enock Chihana is a killer. He will do anything even kill to retain leadership of AFORD. As someone who was with Chakufwa Chihana in Lusaka when we founded AFORD my advise to Frank Mwenefumbo, Kumbo and other politicians from the north to unite and rid Enock from AFORD once and for all. Otherwise we will live to see Enock kill those who challenge his leadership.


Mwenefumbo sent by DPP to win aford then marry with DPP.
There is DPP behind Mwenefumbo just the way DPP was when electing GS of livingstonia synod…………………..

Do you see what i can see??????????????

when Mwenefumbo is succeful, DPP will bring electral reform bill in parliament 50+1.

The most political band In the country… Aford.


The problem with Mwenefumbo is that he is not a stable politician. He moves like wind, it is true that he has been sent by DPP. But with that he wont be able to achieve that because people will oppose his ideas.
