Firebrand Rumphi East legislator Kamlepo Kalua has resigned as deputy leader of People’s Party (PP) in parliament and withdrawn his membership from the party with immediate effect, accusing it of being a party run by a family “full of tribalism”.
PP is led by former president Joyce Banda whose son Roy Kachale is the vice president (eastern region.)
Kalua said PP is a family run party and claimed they don’t wnat people from other tribes to associate with it.
“PP is full of tribalism,” said Kalua.
“The president [Joyce Banda] has the final say and she takes it as a survival kit,” he claimed.
Kalua , who was led Malawi Democratic Party (MDP), and is one of the people who championed multi party democracy, said PP has lost direction.
He has since asked Speaker of Parliament to allocate him a seat as an independent legislator.
PP spokesman Ackson Kalaile Banda said Kalua has resigned because he is “frustrated” after he has been left out to represent the party in the Public Accounts Committee in Parliament.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
