DPP deputy spokesperson Taulo quits: Mpinganjira says ‘rebels’ should not use party emblems

As squabbles continue to rock main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), its deputy national publicity secretary Chris Taulo has resigned from his position and also withdrawn his membership from the party.

Mpinganjira: Rebels should not use DPP emblems

In a letter dated October 4 2020 to the party’s secretary general, Taulo, said his resignation is with immediate effect.

Taulo has confirmed to Nyasa Times the authenticity of the letter.

He said the decision to quit the party “has not been easy considering that DPP is and had been my dream party ever since.

“But as a young politician full of modern political ambition, I have realised that the current environment in our party is not conducive.”

DPP leader and the country’s immediate past president Peter Mutharika is at loggerheads with some party members who want him to step down from leading the former ruling party ousted from power in the June 23 court sanctioned presidential elections.

However, speaking to journalist at his private retirement home in Mangochi christened as ‘Nyekhwe Palace,’ on Friday, Mutharika said: “I am not clinging to the position of party president but I want a proper transition. No one should just highjack the party.

“The party has instituted the functional review committee which will conduct research on why the party performed poorly [in June 23 fresh presidential election] and make other findings. They will deliver the report to me by October 31.”

DPP spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira has since called on party “rebels” in the Kondwani Nankhumwa camp not to use DPP emblems or convene any meeting in the name of the party.

He said the party politburo and its legislators have picked Francis Kasaila to be Leader of Opposition in Parliament replacing Nankhumwa.

In the party, Nankhumwa has since been replaced by Joseph Mwanamvekha as vice-president for the South.

While Gresdler Jeffrey has been replaced by Samuel Tembenu as Secretary General.

Youth leadership is what is needed here not people like Mphepo, Mpinganjira and others. Nowadays age matters most. You are destroyed your party with your colonial type of thinking. Nthawi yovotera azigogo inatha.

The injunction which Nankhumwa obtained was misconceived since was issued against wrong parties who not legally exist.

Brown Mpinganjira should have been an MP to be spewing the party regulations. He is just winking in the night KN can’t see nor hear Mpinganjira the lad is holding to the opposition leadership in the National Assembly. He is a journalist so was Benjamin Mkapa the former president of Tanzania. Hold on to it. Moreover your assessment of the APM sycophants is just brilliant they are in the twilight of their careers you’re in the class that is swinging with a torch lighting a path for all Malawians. Komanso that ministerial limousine with a security guard mustn’t be relinquished… Read more »
