Mangochi Lutende MP Idrissa dumps PP: Ned Poya leads UDF in House

Member of Parliament for  Mangochi Lutende constituency, Idrissa Pongolani Kazembe  has resigned from the People’s Party (PP) of former president Joyce Banda, the Speaker of Parliament announced on Friday.

Ned Phoya: Leads UDF in the House

Speaker Cathering Gotani Hara made the announcement at the start of National Budget session of Parliament.

She said MP Kazembe has since asked to be allocated in the independent seat in th House.

Nyasa Times understands that Kazembe will be associating with   governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and United Democratic Front (UDF) alliance.

The Speaker also announced that since UDF leader in the House Lilian Patel was appointed in the Cabinet, the party has changed its front bench.

MP Ned Poya of Zomba Ntonya  who was the party chief whip is now the leader in the House while the  deputy leader of the party in the 193-strong House  Rodrick Khumbanyiwa, an MP in Chikwawa, becomes the chief whip.

Phoya also spoke as leader of UDF to confirm the Speaker’s announcements.

In the May 21 Tripartite Elections, DPP won 62 seats, MCP and independents got 55 each with UDF getting 10, PP won five (now they have three since Kamlepo Kalua of Rumpi West also resigned).

UTM Party won four seats and Alliance for Democracy (Aford) has one.

Just you wait. There will an exodus from UDF, DPP and Independents after MCP/UTM Alliance starts ruling. We know DPP has stashed away K7billion to bribe greedy MPs, TAs, Vendors and other fainthearted guillible citizens.
By all means receive the spoils, after all it’s your money but please vote wisely to avoid regretting afterwards.

Where was Kamuzu who ruled through MCP for 30 years? Central region. For the north, you killed AFORD yourselves because of selfishness and kusayamika. MCP is tribalistic. Northreners are the worst tribalists who think everything should be theirs. Who dominates the courts? Where do most judges come from? If it had been the south, what would you people have said?

Idrissa has made the RIGHT decision. We people in his constituency support him. We don’t want him to associate with Malawi CROCODILES Party (MCP), a party that has terrorised us for 12 months with UTM and HRDC.

Ife tikumusapota Idrissa. Good move. There is no reason why he should be part of TONSE aliance which is full of violent people – Chakwera, Chilima and Mtambo.
