DPP youth leader fired for backing Chilima-for-President crusade

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has said its national youth director Louis Ngalande has been fired for his cautioning President Peter Mutharika to tread carefully and “seriously rethink” his position to represent the party in next year’s elections.

Ngalande also said former first lady Callista Mutharika is not alone when she openly spoke about leadership change last week in favour of Vice-President Saulos Chilima.

But addressing a news conference  which was attended by all the four Youth Regional Directors at the party headquarters in Lilongwe, the Youth Directors observed that Ngalande has contravened pillars of the party.

The youths led by their National Deputy Youth Director, Dyton Mussa,  said Ngalande has given false information to the public.

“The Director has violated the party protocol and from now he is removed we are calling him to apologize to the President or else just resign.” said the Directors.

Some directors also said Ngalande cannot apologize but is fired automatically.

Mussa said all youths will support Mutharika as 2019 candidate.

He said there is cordial relationship between Chilima and Mutharika.

Presudential advisor Symon Vuwa Kaunda said Mutharika remained DPP’s presidential candidate and that he was in sound health.

Kaunda denied that he is one of the senior members misleading the President.

But Ngalande accused DPP of declaring Mutharika presidential candidate before proper elective process.

”You don’t declare a presidential candidate before the convention, and the President must not have accepted this. The party is sitting on a ticking time bomb if these issues are not thoroughly discussed and resolved.

“Where did the party make a resolution about the presidential candidate? The party has not met for the past five years, where can people express their views about the leadership? Is that democracy?”

He said as a youth director, he will stand for the truth and is ready to face the consequences. But he warned that the party is headed for disaster if the party’s leadership ignores advice from the former first lady and some members.

The Constitution prescribes 35 as the minimum age for a presidential candidate, but is silent on the maximum age for Presidents

Some prophet prophesied that peter will withdraw at the last minute. That was three yrs ago. Can you remind me of that prophet again….kukhalangati anawonera patalitu


This is shambolic guys. Chunua achebe is back. This are no longer falling apart in DPP, but they are disintegrating!


sapita kawiri…..

@Tenzi Mzungu Tread carefully in your comments especially when mentioning the names of the two guys, APM and Chilima. MCP is following closely on how your comments will create enemity between the two. If Callista only only said that APM should not stand without mentioning the alternative MCP would find nowhere to start fueling the issue. Those who are mature in politics know pretty well that there is no issue here worth shivering about. Chilima has been silent all along because his boss told him so because their plans for a win in 2019 are under the wrap of the… Read more »

DPP yatsala madzi amodzi vuto la zipani za Cashgate ndi limeli zimatha mosadziwika bwino.


Undemocratic Progressive Party (UDPP). This is not what we voted for in 1992!! We opted for democracy over the dictatorship being displayed by these beasts/crocodiles. My vote is slowly drifting away from these bandits unless something is done in the remaining time.


Mama I’m waiting for the signal!
