Analyst warns DPP will pay at ballot box for intolerance

A renowned political analyst has warned that the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) will pay heavily at the ballot box for the continued political intolerance and violence.

Mvula:  DPP is intolerant

Humphrey MvuLa, who was once the former ruling party United Democratic Front (UDF) top spin doctor, said the DPP needs to tread carefully on intolerance, saying the new crop of voters might find the party irrelevant.

This follows the DPP decision to stop civil society organisations from holding peaceful protests in Blantyre on September 7, saying the party has a Blue Day, according to the party regional governor Charles Mchacha.

“The party is intolerant, it does not give democratic space to those who hold the government to be transparent and accountable on governance issues,” said Mvula.

He said the DPP is known for its violent back ground and needed to shed off this ahead of the crucial elections in 2019.

“DPP is known for not wanting people to demonstrate. They are using their power as a ruling party to crush those with the dissenting views, to frustrate those who want to demonstrate peacefully, this is against the Republican constitution,” said Mvula.

He faulted DPP officials for holding  what he described as entitlement spirit, that just because they are a ruling party, they can do whatever they want.

“This is wrong in a democracy. This should not be tolerated in democratic Malawi,” said Mvula.

The CSOs have since shifted the peaceful protests to September 21.

I totally agree with the position expressed by Mr.Mvula. The name DPP means” Democratic Progressive Party” implying a party whose ideology is bent to foster progressive democracy in Malawi.And among other key elements of democracy is good governance. Now the question I would like to ask, is DPP a democratic party? The answer is a big NO, the party is far from that. The party believes in violence, nepotism any opposite of democracy you can remember to mention. And this has significantly eroded its corporate image and integrity. About winning 2019 elections, yes its possible but that does not signify… Read more »

Mr mvula sir please give DPP a break. i’m sure the same rights that the cso has to the streets of malawi can also aply to the supporters of DPP. noone said anything about violence when the dpp was granted the blue day activities by the city of Blantyere, its you so called analysts who is making up stories. so please leave dpp alone whether they will pay on a ballot or not, its none of your business. people will speak for themselves and it shouldn’t concern you mr mvula and the rest of the stupid analysts because you don’t… Read more »

Mr Mvula is not against the rights of DPP my bro but the timing of the Blue DAY.Violence is not a human rights unless if you are damn.They is no logical for DPP to have the blue day at the same day and venues with the CSOs.That is creating anarchy.Mind you we did not fought this democracy of what is happening now.It takes a stupid fool like you to be behind this terror government.But someone who is well behaved and democratic can never support this midiocle party.Whether you are behind of what Mchacha and Wa Jeff are doing by employing… Read more »

ADADA MvuRa, where is our mighty StageCoach company? How about the Universal Industries that you and your unqualified tribesmen sucked to death? You introduced and followed the WAKWITHU policy at these companies and employed unqualified thieving MTUMBUKAS and now you have the moral to advise someone in this country?

BTW, why is it your concern that the mighty DPP will not be voted back into government due to intolerance? Are you now a DPP sympathizer? If the DPP loses, won’t it be exactly what you wanted? Go to hell you dull and thieving MTUMBUKA!

I think you are a laughing stock of all.If you stand here and raise your comment based on your tribal remarks then you must be ashamed of your behaviour.Besides all,you can never withstand with tumbukas as far as education is concerned in Malawi.Most of your comments here are based on tribal instead of talking the real issues.Before you start your comment,you must read the headline or the topic first.No one here will ever support your stupidity comments and you are the kind of person who is dividing our country.From now on talk something constructive otherwise if you have got nothing… Read more »

Another lip service and no action. Right Now DPP is above the Law and APM is the GOD of MALAWI. PERIOD.!!!!!!!!! And the surronding vultures are the demigods. They have made a JOKE out of our Republic’s Constitution. Our Judiciary Arm and our useless Legislators are mere puppets of the Super Executive Arm of DPP. Our Constitution is in Jeopardy and yet all our so called spin doctors, economists, worshippers, Intellectuals, business magnets, etc all seems to have lost their self moral and self conscious and become bootlickers and hand clappers and excellent spectators….. . Look at our city Lilongwe,… Read more »

Mr. Mvula since when did you know to be tolerant! ? You were the one who was using the then defunct Stagecoach resources to cause terror in Malawi. You he’ll swindled the once Mighty Universal Industries by employing unqualified lot from your home. Shut your toilet and hunt for a better place for your funeral!
