As people’s resentment grow stronger on how the Malawi’s ruling People’s party is governing the country, some party members are suggesting to call it quit and join other political parties.
The recent ones to move away are four party top officials in the northern part of Mzimba district who have joined the People’s Progress Movement (PPM) which is led by a businessman Mark Katsonga.
They are Laiyson Mbunge (Vice Treasure), Grena Soko (Women campaign Director), Katuya Mkandawire (Campaign director for youth wing) and Chrissie Chirwa who was district member.
In his welcoming remarks at Vongo Primary school on Sunday, PPM regional governor in the north Gift Chipofya said PPM is the only party that respects the values of democracy in the country that’s why now people are releasing joining the party.
“We can see that PP is now losing ground see these have now become wise enough to join the party that can fill people’s expectations once voted in power,” he said.
Chipofya said PPM will ensure respecting the constitution once voted into power in 2014.
“I can assure you that once voted into power our government will ensure that section 65 is implemented in parliament”.
Chipofya therefore urged (PPM) members in the country to remain united.
A representative of those joining the party Katuya Mkandawire said they have decided to dump PP because they feel the party is losing direction.
