Kabambe takes his DPP presidential bid  to Mwanza, Neno

The former Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM) governor Daliso Kabambe who is poised to compete against other members of opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

during the party’s elective convention for presidency, has met the party’s district  committee members in Mwanza and Neno where he urged them to rally behind him.

The move is in a bid to garner more grassroot support  for the party’s presidential race.

Accompanied the party’s  regional executive members for the South, among  them the national director of women Bertha Nachuma, Kabambe assured   DPP followers that the party is going to bounce back into power.

Kabambe said has got the capacity to develop the country owing to his  vast experience in  civil service and also his knowledge  on issues of finance and economy having worked both as the budget director and the central bank governor.

He said DPP is the only party that has shown to have the welfare of people at heart having achieved both on  governance and economical front during its tenure.

Kabambe vowed to continue with such policies should he succeed  former president Peter Mutharika and eventually become the country’s leader.

“We have a chance to get back to power as a party. What is needed is for us to work together to strengthen our party.

“It is obvious that what  Malawians were promised by the current regime is not what is on the ground and  every well-meaning Malawian should realise  now that they have been cheated  by this regime,” said Kabambe.

DPP supporters were seen wearing T-shirts with Kabambe’s portrait emblazoned on the chest and a caption ‘DK2025’ apparently standing for Daliso Kabambe 2025.

Kabambe  was introduced on political podium  December last year when he was  welcomed into the party at its Southern Region Headquarters , a move others  said was  former president Mutharika’s tactic to bring in  his successor.

He is expected to battle it out with Kondwani Nankhumwa ( DPP vice-president for the South), Bright Msaka (DPP vice-president for the Eastern Region) and former minister of Finance Joseph Mwanamvekha.

DPP lost in the June 23 2020 Fresh Presidential Election to the nine-party Tonse Alliance led by MCP president Lazarus Chakwera who partnered Mutharika’s then estranged Vice-President Saulos Chilima of UTM Party on the presidential ticket.

Peter Mutharika took over the leadership of DPP after the death of his brother, Bingu wa Mutharika in April 2012, propelling the party to victory in the 2014 Tripartite Elections.

It’s unfortunately that Bingu died cause those he left behind to run the well oiled machine they have successfully run it on the ground. I wonder what makes you think that DPP will ever comes to power again. Truth to be told if Bingu would have been alive today that church property in the name of the president wouldn’t have known the way to state house. But the foolishness of you the DPP has given him that opportunity. So take note. You better save the little change you have already steal because from what am seeing this church ⛪ property… Read more »

Kondwani we know it well that peter is deliberately appointing Kabambe as the leader of DPP but he will not succeed unless he patterned with Chilima as all them come from Ntcheu hence Kabambe marriege a girl from the district as well.I have attended his meetings with grassroots level.His speech like a CHILD in standard one and not attractive as a leader.He might win as president in 2068. Kondwani even Bakili is not a graduate student but ruled poor country of Malawi and dont worry with your qualification.

Somehow the fellow comes across as flat, uninspiring, and very capable of a big cashgate if given keys to account number 1. Let him try as an MP first.

Another spoilt kid, grown up in a corrupt and fraudulent system. While working as Budget Director, PS, and RBM Governor during his two uncles(Bingu and Peter) administration, he could not differentiate Government business from DPP business. Kabambe was busy financing DPP affairs.
