DPP reinstates Ntaba as VP, Geoff wa Jeffrey now SG: Mphepo is admin 

Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on Wednesday reinstated  Dr Hetherwick Ntaba as party vice president for the centre.

Ntaba: Back as DPP vice president

Ntaba, an aide to President Peter Mutharika, founder of the DPP, was elected as vice-president (central region) unopposed during the DPP convetion in 2013.

He was replaced on his position when the President appointed him to be Malawi High Commissioner in UK but opted not to go for diplomatic tour of duty.

The DPP has  now reinstated Ntaba to be  post.

The party has also roped in  MP for Nkhotakota South Constituency Greizedar Jeffrey  also known as Geoff wa Jeffret as new Secretary General replacing overzealous Francis Mphepo who is redeployed as administrative secretary of the party.

Jefrey becomes the third  woman secretary general after Joyce Banda who later ditched the party to form her own Peoples Party following her disagreement with Bingu wa Mutharika on the heir to the throne of the presidency of the republic and the party.

During the 2013 convetion, the DPP members elected Jean Kalilani as secretary general but she was unceremoniously removed from her post.

Jefrey came to limelight in the 1990s in what came to be known as K187 million ministry of Education scam, when she allegedly received huge sums of money from government when her close associate, Cassim Chilumpha was Finance minister.

The court cleared both Chilumpha and Jefrey.

A statement from the DPP also says the party has appointed Edward Gawanani from Dowa to the national governing council.

The appointments come at a time when the DPP is becoming increasingly unpopular because of the worst ever economic crunch the nation has ever experienced and high levels of corruption in government.

The appointment of Nthaba to be VP is a prelude of DPP’s down fall.How would Muthalika appoint a dead-wood who will bring into the already faltering Party,more damage.Nthaba will of course,be liability to the unpopular DPP.Nthaba is known as the most corrupt thug in Malawi’s political history.The removal of Chirima from the Party,is a vehement damage to the already weak band-wagon.GOOD LUCK MUTHALIKA AND YOUR SERVILES!!!!!

Birds of the same feathers flock together. There is no wonder that H.Nthaba has been promoted to VP portfolio by the President Munthalika taking over from Chirima.Malawians must now expect things to go worst from worse because Muthalika and Nthaba have the same characteristics,both are corrupt,opportunists,tribalists,thieves,inept and aboveall,frankeinsteins monsters who are ready to mortgage our country to foreign money-mongers for their own interests.Muthalika fired Chirima because he was a threat to him politically and intelligently.Nthaba is just a top-notch opportunist who has worked in all regimes and under all evil and corrupt leaders.Chilima,welcome back to the wretched masses of our… Read more »

Mulakho Wa Alomwe…tchupit


Koma ndi zoona Jeff wa Jeff kukhala Secretary General wachipani?? Munthu oti kuyankhula kachingerezi kumamuvutiratu! Omwe anamumva akuyankhula pa msonkhano wa pa Masintha (where she was the Director of Ceremony) will realise what am talking about


it never rains,but it pours for DPP


when a party appoints over grounded politicians like ntaba,that’s a sign of death ofDPP


ndipo kungomupaka mafuta pakamwa maiyu poti secretary general ali pheeeee ndipo ndi mlomwe.


How stupid praising spent forces like Ntaba…can’t the party look forward? ..Certainly bringing nkhalamba back to frontline politics is regressive. Where are the youth?..Ooops…i forgot…they are fulfilling their mandate of committing acts of thuggery for the party.


Ntaba has the blood of my brother on his head. God is watching.


Anthu omwe omweo basi muzingo ombela mmanja! Malawi sidzasintha. Get new blood in and maybe, maybe things will change.Wake up Malawians!
