DPP set to resolve leadership wrangles internally

Main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials say a special conflict resolution will be called which will resolve differences with the party “rebel” group led by party vice president for the south Kondwani Nankhumwa.

Veteran politician Brown Mpinganjira (right) with DPP secretary general Jeffrey: To mend fences

Party spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira could not give details on the meeting which follows Nankhumwa’s decision to withdraw cases against the party and the party decision to suspend its decision to fire Nankhumwa, party secretary general Grezelder Jeffrey, party treasurer general Jappie Mhango and legislator in Mulanje Nthenda from the party.

The DPP has also pended its decision to remove Nankhumwa as Leader of Opposition.

“The meeting will be held in camera,” said Mpinganjira without revealing when and where the meeting will take place.

He however said ormer the conflict resolution meetings will address factions in the party.

At the moment, the party stands divided with one faction loyal to its President Peter Mutharika whilst another loyal to leader of opposition Kondwani Nankhumwa.

Besides, the battle for succession, the DPP membership is divided on who leads the party in Parliament as legitimate leader of opposition.

Two weeks ago the two sides met where it was agreed that Nankhumwa should seek an indefinite adjournment in a case in which he is challenging is his expulsion from party- to pave way for dialogue.

Nankhumwa sought the adjournment in the case pending the outcome of the discussions.

Mpinganjira said the meetings will start “soon.”

That’s the only way for DPP to survive not what they were doing. All the best, we need a solid & strong opposition to keep The Tonse Alliance on it’s toes.

Good luck but please tell APM to desist from handpicking his hand clappers at the expense of other deserving DPP members. There is plenty of deadwood in the party which has misled APM for a long time.
The sooner you focused on the youthful members, the better.

Misled nkhalamba? Alibe nzelu m’mutu mwakemo iyeyo? Anyway, it’s a dead party now.

Whatever you do, you are finished. You will never come back. Thieves, tribalists, rapists etc. Very bad people who brought down Malawi to its knees. You relied on stealing votes and first past the post and now with 50+1 you will not make it any more. Chaponda once said dpp would not need the north to win elections. This time you will need the northerners. You will need us but we will say no and a big no. Central region za inu adayiwala kalekale.
