Joyce Banda, Kaliati, Abida Mia rap ‘running scared’ DPP

Former president Joyce Banda  has blamed the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  for frustrating opposition political party campaign rallies by arranging parallel meetings to fuel political violence among party supporters  in order to destabilize the fresh presidential elections.

This is it: The nine-party Tonse Alliance presidential candidate Lazarus Chakwera, who is also Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president

Banda, who is also the leader for Peoples Party(PP) which is in Tonse alliance alongside other eight opposition  political parties,  said DPP is not ready for the fresh presidential elections as it is aware it is heading towards  defeat hence  it is devising all means possible to frustrate the  presidential elections.

Speaking  at  an opposition grand coalition rally of Tonse alliance at Makande ground in Mgabu in Chikwawa on Saturday where the Member of Parliament for the area Abida Mia was  handing over 40  sewing machine to over 40 beneficiaries, president Banda blamed the DPP authorities who organised another political rally at Miseu 4 some five kilometers from Mgabu where the Opposition Tonse Alliance held theirs.

She said  knowing that supporters of both parties were expected to  criss cross each other on their way to and from  the venues of their respective rallies, the situation  would have resulted into provocation if the Tonse alliance did not exercised restraint

President Banda also  said that  DPP authorities also frustrated the opposition rally she was supposed to conduct alongside other opposition party president on  Thursday at Naisi ground in Zomba by holding their rally at  the same vanue  which made the tonse alliance to shift their rally to Friday.

“On Thursday  we also had planned to have our rally  in Zomba only to be told that DPP supporters had already occupied our venue which made us to reschedule  our rally to Friday.

“To day they have also organized another rally after hearing that we will be having ours.We were willing to postpone our rally had it been that they were to hold theirs at this venue.We know their desperate ploy is  to fuel violence among our supporters inorder to prevent the upcoming elections but we are not going to give in to their provocation,” she said.

Secretary General for UTM party Patricia Kaliati also concurred with Banda saying DPP is shaken with the Tonse alliance saying if it were not so  the first lady would not have joined the campaign trail by  conducting a campaign rally in Balaka earlier this week.

There has not been an immediate comment from the governing Democratic Progressive Party authorities on the matter as the regional governor for the party Charles Mchacha and party spokesperson Nicolous Dausi could not  be reached on phone

In a recent survey conducted by Afrobarometer, a leading pan African research network the MCP _UTM alliance  has been projected to lead the forth coming fresh polls with 44% while the DPP UDF alliance was  trailing with 34% with none of the alliance getting the required 50+ 1

Kodi ndiye kuti awa a Tonse Alliance alibe choti aziwauza anthu kupatula kutukwana ndikulalatira ena? Kaliati when she opens her mouth, eiish. Sadzatheka uyu. Tsono the ambitious SKC kutenga bus yonse ya UTM nkukaiponya ku crocodile party zoona? What vision is this? No wonder many are frustrated. But what I know is that the big hearted SKC sakuchita izi akukondwa. If the Tonse Group wins, let’s see what will happen in less than 24 months ngati ma option five, one of which will be to Chakwera dying won’t be hatched. The guy is too ambitious and to him there is… Read more »

Afrobarometer are liars.How can the candidates accumulate 44% and 34% respectively and where is the 22%?

If two are competing obviously one gets 50% plus, unless if they get equal votes. If you do calculations, basing 44% and 34%, the Tonse Alliance gets close to 57 % and M&M Alliance gets around 43%

Pajatu amachita calculate percentage ya total votes cast, and not percentage of registered voters. Osabvota sawerengedwa pa ma percentage ya 50%+1. It is therefore impossible to have 44% and 34% for the current competitors. The tough question is indeed where is the 22% in the results released by Afrobarometer?

All signs point to the fact that Polofesa Peter Muthalika will be the second sitting president after Joyce Banda to be defeated by the Opposition,let us talk about today’s scenario not 2014.TONSE alliance is strong in Central Region and Northern Regions and some pockets of Blantyre and Lower Shire.The three weeks absence of Polofesa Peter Muthalika has caused non repairable political damage four weeks before elections.The damage will be even worse should DPP employ tactics to postpone te polling day.

Mayi Joyce Bannda is bitter because she wa defeated in the polls by An opposition candidate in 2014 . She was the Chief architect of cashgate in MALAWI and sold Presidential plane. Ndalama zake mpaka lero sidzikudziwika Koma zinapita. In 2019 she failed to enter into alliance with UTM because she wanted her son Roy Kachali to be running 🏃🏾‍♀️ mats to Chilima. The alliance broke down and she went to MCP alliance which lost in 2019 . Her involvement in Tonse Alliance will only turnish the image of Tonse alliance. Utm And MCP preached against corruption but lero they… Read more »

Joyce, let the old man Richard rest at home. You have tossed him a lot. The guy is under capture. Joyce Banda seems has nothing to offer and he was hired specifically to train alliance guys in cash gate.

Kodi mukumati family politics. Is Abida not Sidiks wife but also cousin? Is Roy not JBs son? Kazombos and Kandodo both related to HKB. Is Enoch Chihana not late Chihanas son. Remove the log in your eye first
