DPP Mulanje south committee fleeces party candidates

Ruling Democratic Progressive (DPP) Mulanje South constituency has come under severe fire for demanding K350000 for those aspiring to be MPs on the party ticket and K180000 for those wishing to be councillors.

Kalindo did not turn up

The committee last week  summoned those wishing to stand on the DPP ticket for screening and vetting

One of candidates said he was shocked when the committee officials demanded K180000 if his name was to be vetted.

“I protested, I challenged them to produce documentary evidence from party headquarters but they failed,” he said.

A Mr Chilewe paid K100000 but said this was out of his will.

District governor Richard Beyadi said the candidates were not forced to pay but donated any amount they had jusj to help the committee.

Bon Kalindo, the sitting MP did not turn up for the screening exercise, an indication he might not seek reelection on DPP ticket.

DPP = corruption. Corruption = DPP.

DPP yawukirana

Due to zokhapanakhapana anthu aku South sazapita ambiri kovota. This will reduce presidential votes. Pamene ku mpoto ndi kumwera anthu ali ready kuvota mwa unyinji to remove DPP. In short nkhanza akupanga a DPP will only do them harm. After all akukhapa ma brothers and sisters awo. Secondly, votes will be reduced due to reduction in 2014 sympathetic votes. Panonso kulibe sympathy imene DPP analandira last time. Fianlly, south is more divided than ever before. There are several parties. This coupled with poor performance of this old man. Mmmmmmmm zavuta.

This is corruption and bad for democracy. ACB should quickly move in before others copy from this. Make Mbu mwana mbu. They are copying what the regional governors in DPP have been doing all the time. Demanding money fro aspirants to win in primaries. They also have copied from their NEC who fleece candidates to the convention.

You thought you were clever Mr Kalindo. Chilima wanuyo ali phe kudikira kuti inu mukhale ma casualties thats when he will open his mouth in the end. By then, you will be finished as a politician and be msamiro wa Chilima. Ng’oma yoliritsa sichedwa kuphulika.

Zimakuwawani eti? Whether Kalindo wins or not, he has done the right thing. He is more valuable now than those politicians in DPP who want to squeeze Malawians of their money.
