Alliance for Democracy (Aford) president Enoch Chihana has gone to town on party executive member Dan Msowoya, describing him as a failure in life who fails to feed himself.
Msowoya is a critic of Chihana and this week asked him to resign as party leader, saying he has failed to run the party.
The veteran Aford memner said Chihana’s involvement in Katapila, a case which is in the High Court in Lilongwe and comes for hearing on Thursday this week, is an embarrassment.
In an interview aired on a local radio station, Chihana said Msowoya is a liability to the party.
“He has never even bought a t-shirt for the party. He even fails to feed himself. He has never organised a political rally. He [Msowoya] is a failure,” said the angry sounding Chihana.
Chihana said he has called for a national executive committee meeting this Sunday where he said members will be free to bring in a vote of no confidence in him if they feel he has failed to run the affairs of the party.
“If NEC feels I should not be their leader, they can bring in the vote of no confidence. I am ready to go,” he said.
He, howeve,r said it is only a few people whom he accused of sowing seeds of confusion in the party, saying all what the party membership wants is for the Tonse alliance, to which Aford is a member, fulfill its campaign promises.
Meanwhile, party deputy secretary general Grace Tchupa has asked party members to make a contribution of K10 million which she said Chihana took as a loan to fund the June 23 presidential election.
