Reports went viral on social media over the weekend that Banda is set to join MCP after it was revealed that the politician-cum-musician will hold a live music performance with his Zembani Band in Ngabu, Chikwawa where the party officially welcomed former cabinet minister and veteran politician Sidik Mia.

But Banda said on Sunday his presence at the rally was strictly for business purpose and wasn’t for political move as he was hired and paid to perform at the rally.

“I am a politician and still a UDF member but I have a good relationship with MCP interms of business.

“If you can recall very well, this was not the first time for me to perform at an MCP rally and that is exactly what I have done,” Banda said.

He added that it is disappointing to note that people are unable to separate his personal or business life and politics.
