Kunkuyu, Ngalande say DPP should read ‘signs of times’: Deny organizing violence

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) director of campiagn Moses Kunkuyu  and UTM Party member Lewis Ngalande have distanced themselves  from allegations that they mobilised the youth  to organize violence against President Peter Mutharika on Thursday in his tour around townships in Blantyre after presenting his nomination papers to Malawi Electoral Commission [MEC] ahead of the July 2 2020 presidential polls.

Ngalande: Signs of time
Kunkuyu: Join the demos

Some youths pelted stones at President Mutharika’s convoy in Ndirande Township while chanting disparaging songs.

In an interview with Times Radio, Ngalande said linking him to Ndirande incident is unfortunate because what happened was “people expressing their ill feelings toward the country’s leadership.”

He said: “I was not there but the DPP should have a serious soul searching and read the signs of times.”

Ngalande once served as DPP director of youth before joining UTM.

On his part,  Kunkuyu emphasized that he does not subscribe to politics of terror.

“I woke up to some absurd and silly allegations linking my name to some incident in Ndirande Thursday evening,” said Kunkuyu in a post on his Facebook.

“Putting the record straight, I have never supported politics of terror, intimidation and violence despite being a victim of such under the current regime” he added.

He went further to condemn those who stoned Mutharika’s motorcade as well as showering insults at the President.

“If it is really true that some angry Ndirande residents stoned Mutharika’s motorcade, I strongly condemn such. Again, if some used foul words on Mutharika, that is unacceptable and deplorable,” he said.

Added Kunkuyu: “As a Christian, I condemn and discourage such behavior”.

He, nonetheless, said he believes that what happened in Ndirande is an expression of people’s feelings.

Well spoken our MCP /UTM leaders! For the articulate this is not surprising that DPP wants a scapegoat on each and every bad issue that happens to it!
If they lose a court case…the judges are biased and blah blah blah!
If the Ndirande residents act they way they did…opposition labada dash
Eish DPP wake up and smell the coffee….62% of Malawians dont like you!!
Actually the judges should have banned DPP from contesting because they were beneficiaries of a flawed election!!

DPP were trying to divert attention to the real story which was that APM has lost the respect of many Malawians including those in what he thought was his own backyard… The July elections will be an embarrassing defeat for the old senile man….if he has any iota left in him he would have found another way out of this mess….perhaps resigning under the pretext of ill health otherwise it will be an embarrassing defeat indeed….. And going by the tantrums he has been making on podiums I don’t think that he will be able to handle the election defeat… Read more »

This only shows how far the DPP political base has been diluted with recent political developments.By the way when is DPP fully implementing the Covid 19 lock down?

Machende ako. Vimbava ndi vimene vikuvala blue. Kuba ndalama za boma opanda manyazi eni ake a malawi umphawi okha. Agalu a DPP opanda chikondi. Time is up for thieves and conmen. Make sure you ready yourselves for time in the jails you have neglected to make them fit for humans. Can’t you see that the walls are crumbling aeound you?
