DPP gurus suspect Nankhumwa sponsored political violence at party press conference

Opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) are thinly and indirectly pinpointing at Leader of Opposition Kondwani Nankhumwa as the sponsor of political violence yesterday at a party press conference in Lilongwe.

DPP spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira was punched during the violence while party administrative secretary Francis Mphepo and director of Legal Affairs Charles Mhango fled for their lives at Crown Hotel.

Mpinganjira told the media later, at a different location that one of the people who punched him accused him of trying to soil the name of Nankhumwa.

“He said we were holding the press conference to insult Nankhumwa, have we said anything concerning Nankhumwa here, even our press statement does not say anything about Nankhumwa,” said Mpinganjira.

He said the roughnecks were sent by the DPP ‘rebels’ who were expelled from the party, saying they knew the place of the press conference because the DPP officials were scheduled to meet them there in the afternoon for discussions on how best to end their differences.

But Nankhumwa has distanced himself from the violence.

“I am told one of the thugs put on a DPP golf shirt with words KN printed on it. If indeed if I were to send thugs to beat up people, would they be putting on golf shirts with my name on it,” he said.

He suspected the DPP officials hatched the political violence scheme just to smear him, to soil his name in the intraparty political battle for top leadership.

Mpinganjira, Mphepo and Mhango are supporting the DPP presidential candidature of Dalitso Kabambe.

Mhango described what happened as sad saying it should never happen in a democratic Malawi.

The party expelled Nankhumwa, who is the party vice president for the south, secretary general; Grezelder Jeffrey, treasurer general; Jappie Mhango and legislator Yusuf Nthenda.

Ndale za a Mpinganjira ndizomwe zapangitsa kuti DPP lero ikhale ku Opposition. First it was to get rid of Chilima hoping kuti Thom Mpinganjira will succeed Mutharika and it backfired but people can never learn that Mpinganjira is a problem on his own. Chipasupasu is the only language that Mpinganjira knows.

BJ ndi huleso kwabasi Ref;Bakili Muluzi words,he knows him better…He likes you Dr Kabambe,your wife should stay away from him… Dear Dr Kabambe,you are well educated to be the MG1 in 2025,but follow young blood in DPP,the Nankhumwa team…if KN can allow you stand,then define try,you will have chance to win…. Take it leave it,BJ must retire… If possible,call me I tell you other methods to clean win,Malawi is small,you can’t even sweat… Read more »

I don’t know why Mphepo as old as he cannot retire. Does he want to be Mitchel Mconnel of Malawi? Go home and eat the money you have made and stollen all these years.

Zikuwonesa ngati zanja la Mulungu linaloza pa Kondwani Nankhumwa. Nanga bwanji kulimbana nayo chonchi Mwana. Musiyeni muthandizileni. Propaganda , jealous, and hatred will not work, will not succeed against the will of God. God is bigger than what you know.

Appointing Brown as spokesperson is mistake DPP made,it just showed did lost in reality. This dude is controversial , out of reality! Who chose this guy does not know Malawi politics,no wonder DPP lost power while in government.The real makolija is this one. Until He relinquish his post Sanity will come back to DPP and people will be attracted.Putting this guy as the mouth of DPP does too much harm to the party than even little.Before it’s another too late let this guy leave the party for new blood. His motives are always sinister and he has his own person… Read more »

Those who are quick to deny having done so, are guilty of the facts. Why didn’t nankhumwa call for investigation. I thought he should have said let’s investigate,.
