DPP will continue – Peter Mutharika

The former ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) will continue being a formidable political party, younger brother of late Malawi president Bingu wa Mutharika, Peter has assured.

Peter who is the acting president and DPP presidential candidate of DPP said in his eulogy at the funeral ceremony of the late president in Thyolo.

“I promise you that DPP will continue,” said the grief-stricken Peter in a speech Nyasa Times monitored on Zodiak Radio internet streaming.

“The party will continue I promise you that,” said Peter Mutharika to the hand-clapping DPP youth cadets.

“I will not abandon you I will be here in Malawi,” said the Foreign Minister who has residency permit in United States.

“Peter Mutharika will never leave you,” he stressed.

“Like Bingu I will rise and fall on Malawi soil. That I promise you,” Peter Mutharika emphasised.

He also told widowed First Lady Callista Mutharika: “You shall never walk alone.”

Peter said the Mutharika dream “shall go on” and that despite his death “Bingu dream lives on.”

Since the death of Mutharika many members of DPP have been defecting en masse to new President Joyce Banda’s ruling People’s Party.

Mutharika was criticised for mismanaging the economy and stifling political and press freedoms.
