Joyce Banda appoints Uladi acting PP president

Former president Joyce Banda has appointed the party’s vice president and Salima South Member of Parliament, Uladi Mussa as the acting president for the party dashing hopes of Khumbo kachale to lead the party.

Uladi Mussa: PP acting president and party leader in parliament

People’s Party (PP) publicist Ken Msonda told Nyasa Times that Banda has appointed Mussa to lead the party in her abscece.

“This means in her absence all party affairs will be handled by Mr Mussa as our president until such time when Her Excellency comes back in the country, “said Nsonda

Msonda, however, said the appointment of Mussa, who was the leader of PP in parliament does not mean Banda will never come to Malawi.

“Honourable Mussa can act for a day or two or a year, acting in a capacity has no limitations. She was born here in Malawi, she has grown in Malawi and she has a lot of interests in Malawi than these other people who lived and grew up in diaspora,” Msonda said.

The appointment will also anger a section of PP officials who were campaigning for Kachale to be at the helm.

The party’s regional governor for the north Christopher Mzomera Ngwira was fired from the party for lobbying for Kachale to be acting president.

Banda left Malawi soon after losing the presidential election to Peter Mutharika in 2014.

when convincing evidence will reach the right hands, any person worth their reputation would not be afraid to clear their name or to confess any wrong doing. self incrimination is not to be expected. investigators have to do their job and present credible evidence of wrong doing.

That’s better.
fact is; khumbo & mzomera had good ideas but poor timing. There was no way the two could get pp leadership leaving main actors like ken msonda & ibrahim matola.
I vividly remember when Achair realized that he mistakenly gave UDF to jumbe, bakili asked musonda to get it from jumbe. msonda took UDF from jumbe gave it to chilumpha then back to Achair. JB saw it coming & appointed musonda as administrative secretary to block khumbo from taking the party. musonda is useless! khumbo was using a wrong person – mzomera.
