Ben Phiri given DPP director of elections post: Party quiet on new appointments

Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials are refusing to comment on a National Govenring Council (NGC) meeting  which was held on Tuesday  and appointed Ben Phiri as director of elections.

Ben Phiri: Appointed

Phiriwas not elected at the convention as the polls on his position were cancelled when they were underway. He was competiting with legislator Victor Musowa.

Party secretary general Grazider Jeffrey, whilst confirming the NGC meeting, refused to comment, pushing it to party spokesperson Nicholas Dausi.

Dausi, who is reported to have attended the  meeting in Lilongwe, also refused to comment as the party seems to be sharply divided on the political strategies following the United Transformation Movement (UTM) successful rally in Lilongwe which took the ruling party by surprise.

At the meeting, minister of Gender and Community Services Jean Kalirani has been confirmed as director of International Affairs.

Of course the fact reremains: izi ndi za a Lhomwe, asiyileni a mulhakho eni ake. The rest of outsiders in DPP (the likes of Goodall, Ntaba, etc) are there for 1. On DPP side to serve its interests. 2. On outsiders part money, privileges and prestige that comes with being in ruling party.
SHAME!!!

Tell me who is clean in UTM? Akuluakulu, mpaka kubweleka gulu la ndale? The owner or landlord of UTM in Newton Kambala; the rest are tenants.

IF INDEED DPP WAS SURPRISED THAT UTM LAUNCH AT MASINTHA WOULD BE A SUCCESS, THEN THEY MUST BE VERY NAIVE!

THEY THOUGHT THAT BY ORGANIZING MATCHES BETWEEN BULLETS AND SILVER, THEY WOULD DETRUCT PEOPLE’S ATTENDANCE, THEY MUST THINK TWICE.

MALAWIANS HAVE MADE UP THEIR MINDS TO SUPPORT CHILIMA. I CAN SEE DPP BECOMING ON THE THIRD POSITION COME 2019.

TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT. THE GOODNESS IS THAT THERE IS NO RIGGING THIS TIME SROUND. MUNYA MUONA!

Glaring signs of a falling Bingu empire. This should have been an opportunity to appoint perceived clean members to the key positions to counter the message that UTM is riding on. This is DPP going right into UTM trap by appointing candidates who are seen to be tainted by corruption and fraud. DPP isn’t reading the game very well but then I am not surprised. Ben Phiri appointments a gift to UTM.
