Khumbo Kachale takes over PP presidency: ‘Rebirth will begin with North Malawi’

Former vice-president Khumbo Kachale has been installed at interim president of Peoples Party (PP) at Mzuzu Victory Temple after its founding leader and former Head of State Joyce Banda has been outside the country for almost a year.

Kachali was sidelined by Banda during the elections last year when she picked Sosten Gwengwe as her running mate in the presidential polls which she lost. Kachale then went to on to endorse Banda’s main contender and successor Peter Mutharika and his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Gwengwe has since dumped PP and joined Malawi Congress Party (MCP) with many ditching the former ruling party.

After a meeting at Mzuzu Victory Temple, PP regional governor Mzomera Ngwira announced that Kachali has been chosen as its interim president.

He said PP is reorganising to restore its lost glory and Kachali will lead it “from the frontline”

“PP’s executive has settled for Kachale to bridge the gap left by Banda’s lengthy stay outside Malawi,” said Mzomera.

“KK will lead from the front line,” said Mzomera. “Kachali will be captain of the ship.”

Mzomera said Banda is aware of PP plans to rebuild with Kachali on the throne

“We’ll not wait for the Centre or South to lift our party. The rebirth will begin with northerners who accept the party,” said Mzomera.

He stressed that the North cannot continue birthing new parties every poll year, declaring: “We will stand by PP.”

Kachali said he is pleased to lead PP and assured that he will take it to the centre ground of politics in Malawi.

“We will rebuild and make PP a force to reckon with,” said Kachali.

A conviction politician who is highly regarded in the north, Kachali said the future of Malawi is “bright in orange with a strong People’s Party.”

Atumbuka all your parties are dead. Aford is dead. PP is dead too. Matola, Change Goal and Ralph Jooma have not been picked for the post because they are not Tumbukas. PP has made another mistake of picking Kachale as it did during elections by picking the baby seater Gwengwe.

If there is one thing that should define a Malawian it is that HE OR SHE is equal to any other Malawian.. Any treatment of a Malawian other than on this basis is scandalous and should not be tolerated. FOR THIS REASON, I DETEST THE QUOTA SYSTEM OF SELECTING STUDENTS TO OUR PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES. UNBEKNOWN TO MANY THE QUOTA SYSTEM IS BEING APPLIED EVEN MORE AGGRESSIVELY IN OUR SECONDARY SCHOOLS.. THERE ARE MORE WAYS OF KILLING A PEOPLE BUT QUOTA SYSTEM IS ONE OF THE WORST…….

NOW PP IS TALKING. THERE IS NO ONE IN PP WHO CAN RESURRECT THE FORTUNES OF PP OTHER THAN KHUMBO KACHALI. THE REFORMATIVE STAGE WILL BE CRUCIAL. GET YOUR FRONTLINE PERSONNEL IN ORDER. THE LIKES OF MZOMERA ALTHOUGH FULL OF ZEAL MAY NOT BE THE WHAT PP NEEDS AT THIS TIME. THE SUCCESS OF PP LIES IN IT BEING MAINTAINED A NATIONAL PARTY AND THE SENTIMENTS EXPRESSED BY MZOMERA LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED.. GET ORGANIZED QUICKLY AND DEFINE THE ROLES TO BE PLAYED BY THE VARIOUS PARTY MEMBERS..GOOD LUCK KHUMBO. PLEASE COME TO LILONGWE AND ADDRESS US. CHANGE GOLO,… Read more »
