Chatinkha appears at govt function, says not yet joined DPP

Former close aide to Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera on Monday appeared at a government function in Salima presided over by President Peter Mutharika just weeks after she withdrew her membership
from the main opposition party.

Chatinkha Chidzanja Nkhoma, who played a crucial role for Chakwera and MCP in the run up to the 2014 general election, attended the ground breaking ceremony for the Africa-China Ginnery Factory in Salima.

This heightened speculation that she had now joined the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) after accusing her former party president Chakwera of dictatorship and political intolerance.

Chatinkha, former Peoples Party acting president Uladi Mussa and former MCP executive member Friday Jumbe were the centre of attraction at the ceremony.

President Peter Mutharika formally introduced Mussa and Jumbe to the DPP supporters at the ceremony.

Chatinkha however told reporters she had not joined the DPP.

“I am here as a cotton farmer, I was invited to grace this function as a cotton farmer, I have not joined the DPP,” she said.

She likened her presence at the function to that of Lucius Banda, a ‘rebel’ United Democratic Front (UDF) legislator whom she said attends MCP functions where he performs with his band.

Mussa, who was spotted in blu regalia, brought with him some Peoples Party women who were dressed in PP colours and Mutharika told them to change to DPP regalia if they wanted.

Mutharika said the DPP door was open for any opposition member who wanted to join the ruling party.

Who was Chatinkha in MCP? What impact has her departure made on MCP. Nothing and literally nothing. Is DPP really helping Malawians? Is what Goodall Gondwe did by trying to steal our taxes amounting to K4 billlion good? How many schools could that build in the North? The old man is becoming a children and licking the boots of Pitala.

Chatinkha Nkhoma. attending as a cotton farmer???? just tell the truth, you have joined DPP. it is sad that DPP can welcome a violent woman like you. What you did in burning MCP cloth was an act of violence. I don’t think anyone who has left a political part for another has done that. DPP should be worried to be associating itself with this women. She demonstrated o the whole nation what she is capable of doing when things don’t go her way. You give her a platform at your own peril.

They have accomplished their tasks, now its time to come to the open to show their true colours. Its time to sell themselves under Dpp. I hope they were already promised that they will stand for Dpp in 2019. That is why they were doing whatever they have been doing. Sizodabwisa… koma nkhanga zinaona kale.
