The new vision of the DRAGON DELUSIONAL PARTY (DDP)wont take the Party to win the coming general elections in 2019.The DDP candidates in the names of J.MHANGO,WA JEFFREY AND VUWA,are so cheap candidates that will give more energy TO THE TRANSITIONAL PARTY led by the popular and promising young Politian S.Chilima J.Mhango is very unpopular within his Constituency and it is apparent that he will not win in the 2019 national elections.As with the other two candidates,God forbid.

Congratulations for a very successful convention. The people you have put in the key positions are well experienced and poised to take the mighty DPP to greater heights. Just stay foccussed on what you want to deliver to Malawians and continue delivering. Matipate democracy there is no President who will fully deliver to the satifaction of all Malawians-do your part and let people judge you by what you have delivered.
