DPP denies plot to rig polls: Wa Jeffrey blasts opposition ‘childish antics’

The ruling Democratic Progressive Party has dispelled rumours making rounds  ahead of the May 21 Tripartite Elections that it intends to rig the  polls and keep President Peter Mutharika in power.

Jeffrey: Attacks UTM at a rally in Karonga

Speaking in an interview with Nyasa Times on the sidelines of a rally the DPP organized at Nsumba Primary School in T/A Nthondo area in Ntchisi on Sunday, DPP Secretary General Greselder Jeffrey said they have no plans to subvert the next month vote.

She said the DPP has all the reasons to be confident of winning the forthcoming elections because of the incumbency factor and development projects it has initiated, saying  opposition should not derail the country to the dark past with its “childish antics.”.

The outspoken Jeffrey, popularly known as Jeff wa Jeffrey said in the last five years the DPP has initiated several development projects which have changed the outlook of the country.

She said: “DPP has no time to rig elections. We have a winning formula which the opposition are not aware of. But today I will reveal part one of the strategy which is development. We have initiated a lot of development projects including the rural electrification programme, roads, social cash transfers, technical colleges, good bridges and many  other infrastructure projects.

“If we managed to win when we were in opposition nobody can kick us out now when we have power.”
On the rallies she conducted in Ntchisi, Jeffrey said she was happy with the turn up as it showed that the people in the district are happy with the DPP.

As one way of wooing more voters Jeffrey boasted that only government MP’s can bring development in any area saying in her constituency 44 school blocks have been built, 8 bridges constructed and that  10,000 people have benefited from Ntukula Pakhomo and 8,000 individuals from the fertilizer subsidy programme.

Member of the DPP National governing council Songazaudzu Sajeni who accompanied the secretary general during the trip said he was confident that Ntchisi will produce many DPP mp’s and councilors.

“In T/A Nthondo there was no electricity but now the area is electrified. School blocks have been built and programmes such social cash transfer and fertilizer subsidy making a huge difference in the lives of the people,” said Sajeni who is also a shadow MP in the District.

During the rally the DPP paraded its shadow members of parliament including Violet Skeva for Ntchisi South and  James Mdwazika for Ntchisi North East.

However, the tour did not end without drama as about 15 motorcyclists kept hooting when Jeffrey was making her seech near Mayala village.

Even Gulewamkulu also kept heckling nearby when speeches were being made during the first stop over near Mayala.

It later transpired that the motorcyclists and the Gulewamkulu  were sent by alleged rival parties to disturb the rally.
For a long time Ntchisi has been perceived a predominantly Malawi Congress Party  (MCP) bedrock.

Wa Jeffrey, the evidence is clear, DPP is going to win. Those saying DPP will steal the votes , it is fear, finding an excuse. They have already started complaining of where the ballot papers are being printed. Even boxers who knows they can not win, interview them , orrgh my , always will say I will knock him in the first or second round, but end up being knocked. Mpakamwa podya zamchere. We have seen people quarrel , saying I will beat you, as if indeed they can fight but end up being beaten. So let the noise makers… Read more »

The president of Turkey, Erdogan also has an inflated ego believed he was invisible and cannot lose elections. Now he is crying foul and asking for a vote recount. He is the one crying the opposition have stolen elections. He has lost all the bigger metros, what he thought were his strongholds. Ndi dziko ili. Osamadzipopa kwambiri in life, okufa sadziwikatu.

If MCP is pulling larger crowds in Southern Region than DPP is doing in Central Region then DPP has lost it. UTM is there to cancel out the Northern vote. The most passionate supporters are DPP and they are likely going to vote for it since its rare for opposition supporters to attend a ruling party rallies. Only if radio stations start telling us that so and so (apart from APM) is the front runner will I give up on the mighty blue victory. Inunso ma journalist akuMalawi put your head on the chopping block and tell us who is… Read more »

DPP is winking at our electorate in the pitch dark night. None sees it. No correct formula for retrieving its image DPP is coming back a big hunt without a trophy. The political cyclone has lifted the crown off the DPP head who wins the crown that is in the breast of the electorate. Too much hot air from the DPP circus
