DPP, UDF to conduct postmortem on poll

Opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and United Democratic Front (UDF) say they are yet to conduct a postmortem to determine what led to the crashing defeat at the hands of the Tonse alliance during the June 23 presidential election.

Brown Mpinganjira: There were factions in DPP

UDF spokesperson Ken Ndanga, speaking on Views Triangle on Zodiak aired Sunday said the DPP-UDF alliance never thought they would lose the election.

“We never planned that we would lose. We would do a postmortem as a party to find out where we went wrong,” he said.

DPP vice president for the south Kondwani Nankhumwa said several party structures would meet separately to do their own postmortem.

“After they do their postmortem, we will get the feedback at the national governing council then we will see how to move forward,” he said.

At a meeting for the DPP southern region executive members, some party officials openly said that the defeat was due to selfishness of some top officials in the party.

Some members openly accused party regional governor Charles Mchacha for playing politics of destruction which led to the crashing defeat of the party.

National governing council member Brown Mpinganjira said there was no unity in the party leading to the polls, saying there were camps of Nankhumwa himself, former Finance minister Joseph Mwanamvekha and party executive member Henry Mussa.

Nankhumwa said he listened to the concerns and the national governing council would be working on them in a bid to rebuild the party.

You never planned to lose but the figures were there for all who are wise to see. We all knew what UDF scooped last year and what DPP got. Adding them would not equal a combination of what Chakwela and Chilima scooped. And your researchers could not detect that you had actually lost some of you own voters. The combination of what you two guys got was far less that what they got last year. If you expected to win, on whom were you banking as your voters?

There’s a proverb which says ” There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know”. UDF and DPP are really not political parties: They are family enterprises. And to sustain these family enterprises requires a lot of patronage, i.e. corruption on a grand scale. The Mutharika and Muluzi families will not give up control of their “parties”. Those who want to reform the DPP and UDF really have one option: Create a completely new party that will not belong to one family. Being Southern… Read more »

UDPPF did not lose elections. UTMCP actually rigged the election by intimidating, chasing and hacking UDPPF monitors. Kodi mwaiwala kale?

Chachiwiri, please introduce party membership cards. Some of us want to support activities of UDPPF by buying membership cards because we love the peacefulness of DPP and UDF and we don’t want these parties to die. Nobody shall teach MCP good manners if DPP and UDF will die. Let us make civilised noise so that UTMCP should know that we are many and that we are getting our government back in 2025.

For ever DPP.

You give your child rat poison. He drinks it and dies; and you have the audacity ( or is it the stupidity? ) to ask what killed him? Gimme a break!

No need for postmortem cause of death is obvious:
1. CORRUPTION
2. THIEVERY
3. NEPOTISM
4. IMPUNITY
