Noel Masangwi, one of the crusaders of the Chilima movement alleged Mutharika was splashing out K30000 for each delegate.

“We know what is going on in our party, they are busy removing some delegates from some party structures, the President  is busy buying off delegates,” said Masangwi at a news conference in Lilongwe.

He said the buying off of delegates was corruption.

Masangwi said the movement will formally invite Chilima to stand as presidential candite for the DPP in the coming days.

Describing the convention as fake, Masangwi said the movement will still participate and the subsquent elections.

The press conference was also attendem by former First Lady Callista Mutharika, legislators Parricia Kaliati, Bon Kalindo, Paul Chibingu  among others.

The movement is unofficial political party. The truth there is now APM DPP and Chilima DPP with seemingly different ideologies. The way developments are emerging these are becoming further apart each passing day.


This reads like “Scramble for Africa” type politics. All these political party honchos and die-hards are fighting for financial resources. Just like the colonialists plundred Africa resources so are these shameless people. I raelly dont think they have the interests of the people at heart other than for themselves (very selfish Imotives must say).


The Chilima Movement,if you sees that DPP is not welcoming you and your delegates my only advise is;Just go where the wind is blowing.I mean join MCP and they will welcome you with both hands.Besides,you are free to join any party you wish.Its not too rate,MCP is waiting for guys and you shall campaign vigorously to dethrone this corrupt Government.

The best this movement can do is to swallow all the small brief case parties into a new party headed by Chilima. For sure Chilima will command a lot of votes from the youth in the country and from people who have clean hands and those that do not belong to any parties. The Kaliatis and others whom we think were foul mouthed are human beings, so long at the helm you have disciplined leader, every thing changes.
