According to posters making rounds on the social media, Nkhoma  – utility political talent –  is vying for the position of director of research and training  at the party convention.

He is going to face a challenge from Bwanaope, an aspiring Parliamentary candidate for Nkhotakota North East Constituency.

“Modern politics accomodate people with strategic mind,” said Bwanaope confirming his candidature.

DPP will hold its convention on July 1 to choose leaders. The party endorsed-president Peter Mutharika as its presidential candidate but other positions will have to be contested for.

The party’s convention chairperson Nicholous Dausi has predicted the most “competitive” convention ever.

“The enthusiasm of people who are collecting forms is overwhelming,” said Dausi.

University of Malawi’s political scientist Ernest Thindwa said a convention is necessary considering its purposes, which include a review of the political program which a party wants to adopt for its campaign.

“In the case of DPP, it is a necessity and a positive development; they need to have a convention,” he said.

Thindwa said DPP should ensure there is genuine competition for positions.

When one reads the Website Mr Nkhoma is associated with, one gets the impression on non-partisanship. Reporters will report positive news one day, and negative news about the same Party, the next day. If DPP has people like these in the midst, that suggests the Party lives up to their first initial – “D” for Democratic. Maybe only UDF may come close to have such a democratic Convention, by the way of thinking forward. Aford’s “Convention” was a fiasco – and still the internecine war goes on.
