Lawyer Msowoya dumps Aford-Mwenifumbo for  Aford-Chihana, eyes Mzimba North Constituency

Private practice lawyer, Nicely Msowoya, has announced dumping Alliance for Democracy (AFORD) Frank Mwenifumbo’s faction saying he has joined the camp of  Enock Chihana with the aim of strengthening the party.

Lawyer Nicely Msowoya: Eyes parliamentary seat on Aford ticket

Msowoya said in an interview with Nyasa Times on Wednesday that he believes he made the “rightest” decision.

According to him, he will be contesting as parliamentarian for Mzimba North Constituency in next year’s tripartite elections.

“Yes. I can confirm that I’m now working with the AFORD president Enock Chihana and that I’m an aspiring candidate for Mzimba North Constituency,” said Msowoya in a telephone interview.

Ironically, Msowoya was one of the legal representatives for Mwenifumbo’s camp.

The barrister made the announcement a day after Chihana had returned home from South Africa where he had attended a number of other formal engagements including the Pan-African Parliament where he was elected vice president.

Mwenifumbo, who has repeatedly described Chihana “an absentee president,” was not available for comment as we went online.

But speaking on his aspiration as Mzimba North legislator, Msowoya said he was hopeful he will make it to parliament.

Msowoya will, among others, battle it out against incumbent Agnes Nyalonje and former Toyota Malawi chief executive officer (CEO) Rosemary Mkandawire.

He has also been appointed deputy secretary general for the party.

Dont confuse people, Aford president is Hon Mwenefumbo who was elected with genuine AFORD members and deligates. We dont know who elect Enoch Chihana. There is no AFORD Mwenefumbo but AFORD with NEC members such as Dan Msoghoya, Richie, Mrs Chiume, Guta, and others. Apart from Enoch others who follows him are new, so how did they have the mandate to elect. Anyway Mr Msoghoya you have the right to associate, but dont confuse people that AFORD president is Enoch.

The people who joined the false prophet Frank Mwenifumbo should continue to enjoy the food and drinks that he provides you with. Enock Chihana, Frank, Mwenifumbo and the others fighting over the leadership of AFORD a party they killed by their greed and corruption is headed to doom.
By the way Hon Frank Mwenifumbo, Enock Chihana was elected as AFORD MP, were you? No so stop confusing and let Enock Chihana bury whatever remains of AFORD.

I agree with you Chaguza Nyirenda on this and to add abit more ,Mr Msowoya being a lawyer is supposed to understand that Hon Mwenefumbo was elected on a legally binded indaba while with Chihana , I don’t even remember if there was another indaba which elected him after the one which indorsed Mwenefumbo as the current leader, To me every aford member should accept Mwenefumbo as the current leader and Party President otherwise this little opportunity can help aford to give atleast a chance for resurrection otherwise it will die for ever

Real AFORD is still intact and that is Chihana and his NEC. Mwenifumbo knows why he rejoined AFORD which his friends don’t know. He fought for that purposes and that purpose alone and in future he, Mwenifumbo, shall tell us. It is the background that matters. Remind Mwenifumbo of his speech when late Bingu was laying a stone for Blantyre Zomba road. Really, is that a character to be followed, unless …

I agree Mwenifumbo wanted to introduce Press Censorship.
How can this man speak for democracy?
Useless man, he left AFORD to join DPP and was encouraging Bingu to be a dictator!
Better Enock than this brute!
