DPP youth leader says Callista not alone on Chilima-for-President crusade

National youth director for  ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), Louis Ngalande, has said there many of them supporting  former First Lady Callista Mutharika within the rank and file of DPP in backing calls for Vice President Saulos Chilima to be torchbearer bearer  under the DPP banner at the expense of incumbent Peter Mutharika.

Ngalande: In support of Chilima-for-President crusade

He said  Chilima-for-President crusade  is gaining support and is a movement which he said is unstoppable.

Ngalande said as DPP director of youth, he is offering “full support” to Chilima to run for presidency as DPP candidate .

“I am urging him to represent the party in 2019. I am also in agreement with what the founding member, Madam Callista Mutharika, has said  that there are so many problems in the party,” Ngalande said.

Hecsaid DPP has not met at National Governing Council since 2013 before getting into  power, saying Callista was on point when she said President Mutharika  has been surrounded by “beasts of prey” who are misleading him for their selfish gains.

“The former First Lady was right when she spoke of beasts and thieves surrounding the President, these things are there and we know it,” he said.

“If the party was meeting at executive level, we could have been airing these things but there are no avenues so we will resort to the media and engaging the people to express our views,” he said.

DPP’s secretary general Greselder Jeffrey declined to comment.

All characters who made Bingu and DPP look bad in the eyes of Malawians, APM was seeing them and has since chosen to sideline them for good of the nation. This is also the main reason he reached out to outsider in terms of runningmate for the party. You cannot separate APM/SKC relationship because you dont know the glue between them. Your devide-and-rule approach wont work either.

You probably are right Suzgo and its so painful to accept. But then I still go back to when Chilima started as a politician. It wasn’t his own making or decision, it was rather Peter who called and “forced” him to join politics. Chilima is not the type of person who would raise his hand but rather would wait for someone to nominate him. Unfortunately politics isn’t that straight forward. This is why Honourable Goodall Gondwe has categorically said “presidency isn’t for babies” and thats certainly true. You need someone who’s a firebrand and an orator who can rock the… Read more »
