Msikska was welcomed in DPP formally during a rally President Peter Mutharika addressed in Mzuzu on Sunday.

During the function, Jappie Mhango, a Member of Parliament for Rumphi North, Christopher Munyenyembe of Mzimba East who both won on an independent ticket also announced that they have joined the ruling DPP.

Khwauli said he has resigned from Aford because its leadership – under lawmaker Enock Chihana – is using the party for self-serving on political interest.

He said Aford leadership has “ lost focus in terms of the core values of democracy upon which the party was founded.”

According to Msiska – well known for moving a controversial open terms private members motion in parliament to extend former president Bakili  Muluzi terms in power –   Aford is virtually reduced to serving interests of  Chihana.

Aford was founded by trade unionist Chakufwa Chihana (father to Rumphi Central Parliamentarian, Enock Chihana) in 1992.

In the 1994 general elections, the party swept all the 33 seats in northern region and three others in central region.
