I’m bonafide AFORD president—Mwenifumbo
Karonga Central parliamentarian, Frank Mwenifumbo, has reiterated that he is the “bonafide” leader of the Alliance for Democracy (AFORD) elected by “bonafide” party members last Tuesday, May 1.
Mwenifumbo made the sentiments in an exclusive interview with Nyasa Times that former president Chakufwa Chihana’s convention on Wednesday was totally illegal.
“The court ordered that the convention should be held on Tuesday, May. Where did he get the mandate to hold another convention on Wednesday?” queried Mwenifumbo.
According to Mwenifumbo, it is sad that Chihana was behaving in such a manner.
“This is an era of people power. People must decide, and they decided. The problem is that he takes AFORD as a personal estate. It is sad,” said a relaxed Mwenifumbo.
He added: “He has to respect the rule of law. The courts. He must accept that people are tired with his dictatorial leadership.”
Mwenifumbo, who said has donated one of his houses in Lilongwe’s Area 49 as the party’s national office, said it was no longer time for trivia.
“We have started work. I was surprised when I was travelling around for campaign that AFORD is actually a powerful party in the country. It is a national party. It simply needs proper and sober leadership to be rekindled,” he said.
But Chihana, who also claims to be AFORD president following another “convention” on Wednesday, said—in his acceptance speech—that the party “is not a family estate”
He said: “The party belongs to the people. The only thing which my father left to me is my big estate, not a political party. I will now go flat out to take the party to the people. We have been in court for a long time. I had no time to work but now I pledge to ensure that the part belongs to the people.”
band yagawana zida. Lets listen to what each leader what somg he will play!!!

A Chihana, siufumu uwu woti umayenda from father to son. Anthu ngati sakukufunani vomelani. Pali zambiri zimene mutha kumachita. Mukhoza kuyamba business yowotcha tchipisi kapena kumapha mbewa nkumagulitsa m’mbali mwa misewu. Apo ayi kumasoka mphasa and earn a living.

Nnse ma president awirinu mbuzi. Hold convention ya bwino bwino although you will not achieve anything. Next thing one faction will go to dpp the other to mcp chipani kuthera pompo. Exactly mmene chinathera poyamba paja. Please my educated northerners sukulu ndi nzeru mumadzitama nazo zija ndi chonchi?
Banyithu ku Aford kwasuzga these two presidents have given the press a lot of work the press is not sleeping on its job zipani zizatha ngati makatani were the unerring remarks by Bakil today all the political parties formed at the dawn of multiparty system are being haunted by these words yet the founders are still alive this is a terrible prick on their legacy the balloons are being deflated
