Drama at DPP presser: Dausi stunned as Msonda confirms authoring letter insulting Malawi judges

There was drama at a news conference organized by the  governing  Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to refute allegations that the party authored a letter which insults judges.

Msonda:  I authored the letter

As the DPP publicity secretary Nicholas Dausi said the letter was authored by the opposition  Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM mercenaries, the DPP national executive committee member Ken Msonda popped into the news conference room and declared that he authored the letter, to the embarrassment of Dausi.

The letter has the letterhead of the DPP, the  ruling party logo as well as the picture of President Peter Mutharika.

However, Msonda had to put a spin that he authored the letter on his own without the blessings of the party.

“I authored the letter as a concerned Malawian, I did not seek permission from the party,” he said.

Earlier, Dausi told the unsuspecting journalists that the party had engaged Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA) and IT experts to determine the author of the letter.

The five-judge panel comprising Healey Potani, Redson Kapindu, Ivy Kamanga, Mike Tembo and Dingiswayo Madise on February 3 this year nullified the presidential election in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections and ordered that a fresh election be held within 150 days from day of the judgement.

The High Court sitting as a Constitutional Court said  Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) failed in all constitutional tests it set out on the elections and that the irregularities were so glaring that the credibility of the election was in question.

Meanwhile, the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal is set to hear MEC’s appeal on Wednesday April 15 2020.

The DPP imamangika ndi Nundwe ndipo were not sure what comes from MDF if they do anything stupid. But with this cadet General DPP is going to carry the day harassing people in the southern region. The good thing is that can’t do that at the centre, nanji nanji kumpoto sangayesere. Anthu akumpoto ndiogwirizana guys.

I hope Daily Times and Nation don’t fall for this staged Drama….When Ruling Party Savages storm polling centres ….Some with pistols in a Democracy that’s the Headliner for You …It begs alot of questions on the Rule of Law and the Very Survival of our hard worn democracy… Mind you in 2014 polling centres were attacked to influence the election outcome ….they got away with it …..Is this the new Norm that our security agencies will always be below the Cadets or we Need Another Operation Bwezani ?

The said report states “We would like to register our appreciation to the DPP under the leadership of professor Arthur Peter Mutharika for according us the opportunity to carry out this project”. This is clearly proves that this work was done with the blessings of DPP and its president. No amount of spin can erase that fsct because it is in the report. Mutharika should be ashamed of himself for trying all the tricks in the book to subvert the will of the majority of people. Democracy demands that the majority to rule and not a minority. That is not… Read more »

We do not need proof that DPP deliberately create situations with the aim of subsequently acusinng the opposition just to seek public sympathy and score a political mileage. Now we know their devilish strategies.

My take is that Msonda, apparently member of DPP NEC, is fed up with being sidelined and loses nothing by embarrassing Dausi.

Didn’t we hear not so long ago that all is not well in DPP? Nankhumwa’s recent revelations and, to some degree, Msonda’s action today, say alot.

This is exactly what happens if the lifespan of a political party is coming to an end.
