The opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has said it is not shaken with the defections that have happened in the party saying such is an act of exercising constitutional rights.
The party’s spokesperson, Nicholas Dausi said this in reaction to the defection of some of its members in the central region saying this does not make the party unpopular in the region.
The recent defection from DPP to the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is that of former Secretary General Binton Kutsaira a move that comes after one year when Wakuda Kamanga also defected but to the ruling PP.
According to DPP’s spokesperson, the party will replace the two.
“In democracy there is no personal holder. People are allowed to exercise their inherit inaliable constitutional right as a freedom of association. And indeed Wakuda Kamanga left and now Kutsaira has left the party.
“They are exercising their constitutional rights and that is freedom of choice and we have nothing against them,” said Dausi.
He added :“The fact that the two defectors are from the central region, we cannot predict of what to happen but as the party’s people we are there to support us as well as to stand for DPP. As for others, we will let them be nomadic, peripatetically politicians or wanderers.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
