Bintony Kutsaira, the former secretary general of ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has rejoined the party and performed his trademark political worshiping bow to President Peter Mutharika when he welcomed him at Masintha Ground in Lilongwe.
Kutsaira was among 21 recycled politicians who were welcomed in the DPP.
The former National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) boss has been a political nomad, he first cut his political teeth in Malawi Congress Party (MCP) where he once once served as its member of parliament.
He then joined DPP and defected to Peoples Party when it was in power where he served as Deputy Minister of Agriculture Bintoy before rejoining MCP and now is back to DPP fold.
Speaking when he welcomed the defectors to DPP, President Mutharika urged his party members to embrace unity and accept new members from opposition political parties.
He said politics is about numbers and he is ready to work with both old and new members who are joining the party.
“It is only when others subscribe to your philosophy that you know you have a far-reaching appeal as a political establishment,” said Mutharika.
“So, we in the DPP warmly receive these patriotic men and women who have chosen to serve Malawians better from a more viable platform than the rest of the political pack,” he added.
