DPP replaces central region governor Josiah-Banda: Kutsaira takes over

As Malawi’s ruling party Democratic Progressive (DPP) continue to make charges in its rank and file ahead of next year’s  sticky Tripartite elections, the party has removed  its regional governor for the centre, Dean Josiah Banda and replaced him with Bintony Kutsaira.

Kutsaila loves his bow,

Kutsaira made a ‘bow of the year’ when he was with Joyce Banda

However, the party has said it has redeployed Josiah to other duties.

Kutsaira, who is  former  State chief spy, when contacted on phone could not comment on the matter .

“Talk to [Hetherwick] Ntaba or the secretary general of the party,” he said.

DPP secretary general  Grezelder Jeffrey wa Jeffrey said she has seen a letter of Kutsaira’s appointment dated March 12 2018 but said could not comment because she was in a place where network is very bad.

“The phone is faint. Let’s talk later so I can comment clearly,” she said.

DPP administrative secretary Francis Mphepo said President Peter Mutharika was Kutsaira to build the party in the central region.

Mphepo said  Josiah-Banda has been appointed presidential adviser on political affairs.

Josiah Banda ,  a business tycoon  and former football administrator, took over the regional governor post when he replaced  late Eclain Kudontoni who was promoted to be the party’s Secretary general.

Kutsaira has been a political nomad, he first cut his political teeth in Malawi Congress Party (MCP) where he once once served as its member of parliament.

He then joined DPP and defected to Peoples Party when it was in power where he served as Deputy Minister of Agriculture Bintoy before rejoining MCP and now is back to DPP fold.

Shitholes recycled. What can good looking Kutsaira bring to dpp. This is just a continuation of plunder of our resources. I really do not know what really excites APM at the age of 80. He is failing to lead us wisely. He is involved in so many stupid mistakes. This man is totally different from Bingu. It is doubtful if they came from the same parents.

In all the five general elections MCP had been singing TIWINA,TIWINA,TIWINA. No wonder it is the same song for the 2019 elections. Ndi nyimbo basi koma wokha akudziwa kuti sangawine chisankho.

Ana a Ku zibwenzi anyanyuka kulowa MCP. Bravo the genuine Matenje family for disassociating the family from such an embarrassing move. MBC congratulations for your good new educative and informative programmes of Sapita Kawiri ndi Ndikati Chete. Ana a Ku zibwenziwa sadziwa zomwe zinachitika mchaka cha 1983 kuti four prominent citizens left their homes for parliament in Zomba only to have their bodies returned home later wrapped in prison blankets by MCP’s trademark of killing. It is sad that these kids, after eating mang’ina, made such tear shedding announcement. We are expecting these toddlers to apologize to the genuine families… Read more »

Hatton,

You are a shame. If you can still cry for those who died in 1983 what about our youngman Chasowa at Poly. Hopefully you are being given cash. One thing you have to know is that God sees everything we are doing. Ifenso tinali momo but truly speaking DPP has lost direction. Your relatives, including mine are suffering in our villages.

MCP did not kill anyone, it was MCP leaders. So ask yourself which leaders ordered the murders of the Four. Ask Hetherwick Ntaba of DPP about the killings of MCP. Ask Nicholas Dausi how they used to carry out orders at MYP. Those are the people with mentality to kill. If a Bank Manager steals money from one bank, and goes to work for another bank, it doesn’t mean he has stopped being a thief.

Ndale simumazidziwa afinye inu. DPP kuti ipeze majority of seats in the Centre election ya 2009 mpakana 67% siBinton yemweyu. Malemu Bingu kuwina achina Kasungu, Dowa, Nchisi big time. Strategist wake tu anali Binton ndi amene anacheza masamu akuCentre. Nde ignore him at your own peril!

Mr Zaya, i think you were not there that time of Bingu when he massed the whole central Region. Let me tell you what happened and off course will happen again. People loved Bingu almost the whole country, that was before he started his games if you heard about him, that was the reason why these places you have mentioned here voted for him, it was not because of this Binton you are talking about here muna. by the way is he an MP? am failing to remember if he made it, anyway that is not the case. Back to… Read more »

It is your wishful thinking that l was not there and l have no problem with that. Bingu was loved – yes – because there were people mobilising for him on the ground and behind the scenes. Majority yaMafumu aku Centre if you care to remember were all on the side of malemu Bingu and I repeat this without fear of contradiction – architect/strategist of all this was none other than Binton Kuntsaila. Prof Peter Mutharika was there as Foreign Affairs Minister and he knows very well the capabilities of Binton hence he has romped him in. It is not… Read more »

No one told us to love Bingu but it was automatic because of the way how he did to Malawians, simukuva pati nanuso? ask your friends, this is not politics but the truth muna. You remember he was given the name Ngwazi? do you know the reason why? Am from Central, i loved Bingu more than Bakili, and am sure even Hatton and Santana can say the same, am not saying it is wrong to pick Binton as it has happen, no i do nt have any problem with that, am just talking about why Bingu massed the central region… Read more »

In as long as DPP is recycling its rank and file with tried and tested politicians, it will not make any headway come May 2019. This is an opportunity for DPP to bring in the youth (young blood) that has energy, agility and the ability to appeal to the youth. It is a fact that Malawi over 60% of its voting population is younger than 35 years. Strategically it makes sense to target this segment, if not DPP will win probably with a 15% mandate making it the most hang parliament in the history of Malawi. It will be a… Read more »

Mukuoneka kuti choice ya Kunsaira yakupwetekani kwambili. Mukunjenjemera nayo. If it was such a bad choice you would have been happy and kept quite knowing things will be ok for you. Your reaction just shows kuti DPP has scored a huge political mile by picking Kunsaila as its regional governor

Bomba ilo!!!!! Wina akomoka, makamaka nkhani ya magazi m’manja a MCP uyu ndiye aziyimasula bwinibwino m’misonkhano ya a President. So if it is the president’s rally both Wa Jeffrey and Kuntsaira will be speakers hitting the MCP badly. Kuli gule.
