He had this coming. If he really wanted to take over from APM. He should have played his cool and followed the APM leadership until a proper and due process of choosing the successor was followed. Otherwise, zolanda zi sizimatheka. I guess he knows that APM would not allow him to take over the DPP leadership thereby trying by all means to hustle the leadership. Well he has just been thrown out he will never be any near the leadership position now. So near and yet so far away. He should have learnt something from the Chilima debacle.

Mcp has Jessie kabwira who thought she was bigger than the Grand old party. She was sacked and is now nothing, but a common hag in the streets. Phuma. Nankhumwa wants to wrestle power pomwe sanafetse. Sizimatha bwino,insubordination doesn’t look good on anyone’s Cv even Mcp wouldn’t welcome that.

I for one am very disappointed with Nankhumwa, l expected better frol him. He has taken the Chilima route of rebellion and that will not end well. You can see Chilima moving up and down the country and think the man is enjoying it but in reality he knows that he was used and very soon the naughty MCP will through him out. Loyalty is a great thing to do in politics until your time comes.

Cadet stop deluding yourself. DPP did not win in 2014. It was Judge Kenyatta who had given Mutharika a stolen victory. Ndiye ma judge ndi aja munkawatukwana, kunyela mwano pa nkhani ya chisankho, forcing them to retire. Forget about sympathy from the judiciary this time.
