DPP says not fazed by opposition ‘combination of nuisance’

Government and the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has said rubbished the announcement by nine opposition political parties that they have agree to form an  electoral alliance in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections, saying  the DPP  are not threatened by what they call “combination of nuisance.”

We are not fazed, DPP will dance to victory: Dausi and Mussa

The alliance involves recent-past governing People’s Party (PP), newly registered UTM Party, Alliance for Democracy (Aford) and six others under the banner of Tikonze People’s Movement.

The parties have said they will unveil their joint presidential candidate on a Monday and a running mate.

But Minister of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Henry Mussa told Nyasa Times that there is no incredible bright spark that the opposition alliance d is holding that will draw voters away from the DPP.

“DPP will contest elections against anyone and are confident we will succeed,” Mussa said.

Mussa said the majority of the opposition leaders in the alliance  – if not all  – have “failed to live up to Malawians expectations and aspirations of social and economic development to alleviate povert.”

DPP spokesperson Nicholas Dausi also trashed the opposition alliance, saying its been formed out of “political mala fide intent.”

He said: “I don’t think we are too worried about what the prospects of opposition alliance  will do to our voter base.”

Dausi said  President Peter Mutharika has a robust campaign as well as infrastructural development which puts him at an advantage than his political opponents.

“The President has achieved tremendous development in health, education and there is stability of the kwacha. This has resulted in donor confidence,” said Dausi.

The country’s incumbent Vice-President Saulos Chilima said His UTM Party is forming an alliance with other parties to enhance chances of winning the elections.

He told a news conference in Lilongwe: “It is important to join forces and form a formidable force in order to ensure that victory is on our side. You can be assured that we have engaged other parties on this matter. But we will confirm whether we have partners in a matter of days.”

The Institute of Public Opinion and Research (Ipor) in its report on the political environment in Malawi in the run-up to the 2019 elections said Mutharika is likely to win the May 21 presidential elections,

A new country report for Malawi released by London-based Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) has also suggested Mutharika may win.

The DPP brags the victory will be “landslide” for a Mutharika.

the truth on the ground is that yes dpp is right to insinuate that game yakula ana achepa. Just imagine the whole former president admits kuti she cannot overthrow apm likewise skc thats why they have formed an alliance, But alas the alliance is nothing i can challenge u which elections dd the electoral alliances made it right here in malawi and in africa at large. Migwirizano yambiri yomwe imachitika imakhala ya akuluakulu ku mtundaku basi and not of the middle levels and also those below. In any electoral alliance members from parties within the alliance opt to vote for… Read more »

As far I am concerned, JB is innocent because she has not appeared in court on corruption charge. So what you are saying is total crap and you better shut up. She was threatened by warrant of arrest while she was in the US, but she challenged the authorities by returning home and till now nothing has happened. Whats does that tell you.

Am guessing you also think Chaponda, APM, Nazeer are also innocent. Have you forgotten Roy, Kamlepo and them went to ask APM for JB to return home. Even if she is innocent, but she displayed a lot of incompetence while president. And if they didn’t use cashgate for their campaign, where are all those cars, buses, trucks that they were using. Zimayendera ndalama zaboma. Its your kind of blindness that makes Malawi stagnant.

Mbuzi iwe!! being being outside prison does not mean you are innocent. Thousands of people outside prison walls are equally guilty as those within prison walls. Si Chilima yemweyo amati akuba enieni sali mu ndende? Si Chilima yemeyo amati “ali ku ndende ndi oba nkhuku, akuba enieni ali kunja?” Iwe umati akunena ndani if not JB inclusive? Any reasonable man apart from you knows this. Just Google “top 15 richest Malawian” on your browser upeza kuti JB ali pa number 10 with $35 million under her belt, anayipeza kuti, which business does she has, ya madasi yomweyi? Shut up if… Read more »

My God Chilima! either you are desperate or very naive. You have The Queen of Cash-gate in your group! The queen of corruption your group! and kings of cash-gate in your group! Yet your running theme is that the present government is a corrupt Government!!! What is it? are you just disorganised ? naive? or are you thinking Malawians are that stupid that they will put Mbala m’boma? I am very puzzled! If Malawians vote in my friend they deserve to have a miserable 8 years because so far you have not impressed this Malawian! You are a young man… Read more »

Kodi iwe Chilima, uzilakhula chani za corruption with the most corrupt lady, a Cashgate Master minder by your deskside. Suzichita manyazi koma? Apatu wa gufa (goof) tu apa.

First CASHGATE convicts in Malawi on record were 2011 and NOT when JB accidentally president in 2012. It’s an open secret that K577 billions remain unaccounted for by this DPP government. Do not be self-denialists that’s why you are thugs and thieves DPP

Cases of corruption and thefty of public funds appear to be on the increase in current regime than any other in the past and chances of DPP forming the next govt are very slim.

Accept that them two are Malawians of Asian origin. Stop retreating them as Indians. Treat them as Malawians and subject them to the very same treatment a corrupt Malawian gets subjected to
