DPP calls for executive emergency meeting as Nankhumwa holds rally Sunday

The main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) secretary general Glesdler Jeffrey has called for a national governing council (NGC) meeting to be held this Saturday to discuss among other things the route map to the party’s convention.

Jeffrey: Calls for an  emergency executive meeting as DPP prepares  for convention to replace Mutharika

Jeffrey said the meeting will agree on when the party can hold the convention which will shape the direction of DPP.

“All we want is a convention to elect a new party president and leaders so we can have a new direction,” she said.

After the NGC meeting, Leader of Opposition in Parliament and DPP vice president (South) Kondwani Nankhumwa has planned a public rally on Sunday in Bangwe, Blantyre.

Nankhumwa is expected to comment on issues surrounding Mutharika’s attempt to remove him as leader of the opposition and  replace him with Francis Kusaila.

There are also reports that DPP plans to expel Nankhumwa from the party.

DPP recently appointed a Functional Review Committee chaired by vice-president (Eastern Region) Bright Msaka and is expected to present its report on October 31 2020

Based on its report the party’s leadership will discuss the way forward.

Political analyst Humphrey Mvula has said there is “toxic relationship” among party members.

He said DPP risks to be relegated to the dustbin of political history is it fails to manage its succession process.

How come that MANEB is allowing these politicians to storm STD 8 examination rooms when examinations are in session? Is that ethical considering that examinations are confidential?

Our track record as a nation, as far as handing over power to successors, is very very poor.

As a nation, let us improve and make it clear (as leaders) as to whom is to succeed us, following laid down procedures.

I put it to you that there are other associations which also lack clarity, apart from this issue and if left this way, shall also cause similar controversy.

This is an issue which as a nation we need to take seriously, as it takes unecessary time away from building our beloved nation.

Call me a prophet of doom but i can forsee Nakhumwa teaming up with Chilima . With chances of Chilima becoming President after 2015 fading i can see the two rebels teaming up. Chilima can then renew his chances of becoming President and Nankumwa Vice President. The looser will be Usi. With Mitambo safely under the shadow of MCP , Saulos can forget his dream of becoming President come 2015. Its a pipe dream. Chakwera is enjoying power . 5 years is not enough. And with MCP back into power after 30 years they cant give power to a vaulting… Read more »

Call Nankhumwa all sorts of names but you must know and appreciate he is a force to reckon with. Expelling him will just speed up formation of another party which will be the speedy killing of DPP. It’s interesting to see how dull DPP leadership is that they can’t see the writing on the wall. Fact is that any aspiring DPP leader, other than Nankhumwa or some other younger person, does not inspire confidence and will just send the party fast to its grave.

Nankhumwa should just be kicked out of the party. If he wants to start his own party let him do. But DPP will bounce back with a cleaner composition.

Dreams of uninfertile person. No capable person to lead DPP. It goofed on SKC, No sane person can vote for DPP except those who were stealing when it was ruling.
