I’m not a power ranger or political hooker — DPP’s Mzomera

Member of Parliament for Mzimba Hora, the Reverend Christopher Mzomera Ngwira,  says he did not join ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  after being banished from People’s Party,  as a political power scout but rather to help President Peter Mutharika get more votes especially in the northern region in the next year’s elections.

Mzomera Ngwira: I am not a political prostitute. I have just gone back to my old party, the original party where my politics started

Speaking at his constituency meeting at Endindeni, Ngwira asked incumbent legislators of DPP in the north to welcome new members wholeheartedly if the party is to face the  elections with strength in numbers.

Ngwira  said it was surprising that some  members of the party were gripped with the fear of the unknown and giving cold shoulder to new members and those who want to join the party apparently for fear of losing positions.

“I am not a power ranger. I left the DPP when I was a regional governor. After joining People’s Party those who were my juniors at DPP probably rose in party ranks. I am now back at DPP as an ordinary member and with no intention to grab positions, so remove that fear of the unknown and let’s work together,” said Ngwira.

Ironically, the open door policy was recently also heavily preached by President P Mutharika, who is also president of the DPP at his Lunzu political rally. And Mutharika only took over the preaching from DPP’s Secretary General Grezelder Jeffrey.

Ngwira warned that now that the former ruling People’s Party, which was strong in the northern region, has lost political steam, the DPP needs a lion’s share of the undecided former PP members by welcoming them or risk losing them to the opposition.

He said Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is strong contender and he fears if not challenged the party  twill get many votes from the North.

“I will go everywhere in the region to remind people of the atrocities that MCP committed during its time in power [1963-1994].  I will stand firm and remind voters of what these people [in MCP] have been doing,”he said.

The flamboyant parliamentarian has since rubbished his recent arrest by the Anti-Corruption Bureau as politically engineered as he is “too smart to steal K150, 000.

Mzomera, you are a big fool and don’t deserve to belong to the north nor being called a reverend. The atrocities you are talking about, were they committed by a party or individuals? Don’t you have eyes to see that some of those individuals in the old MCP are in your beloved DPP? Do the names Heatherwick Ntaba and Nicholas Dausi ring a bell to you? Was Chakwera or Miya and others in the new MCP part of the old MCP ruling machinery? How about if I remind you that the leadership of DPP killed Robert Chasowa and Njaunju? the… Read more »

Atrocities??? Some of us were not there when these atrocities were committed and the current MCP president was not involved and a good number of his MPs if not all were not involved, but we have some key figures who were members of MCP serving as cabinate ministers and advisors to President Mutharika. Your Atrocity thing is not going to work. Pezani china chonena. I witnessed the 20 July Massacre in Mzuzu under DPP
