Mchacha says Kabambe not Mutharika’s party handpicked successor: DPP open contest

Main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has swung into the game of refutations following social media reports that party new catch Dalitso Kabambe has been handpicked by Peter Mutharika to be its next leader.

Kabambe  joins DPP

DPP regional governor for the south Charles Mchacha has also trashed reports that Kabambe is nephew to Mutharika as they all come from Thyolo District.

Kabambe, the former Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM) governor was welcomed to the DPP on Friday in Blantyre, as a technocrat to help revive the party amid calls for transformational leadership.

His arrival at DPP has led to widespread speculation ahead of the party’s much awaited elective convention at a date not yet set.

In a statement, Mchacha explained that it is not true that Kabambe has been handpicked by Mutharika into the party.

Mchacha also dismisses remarks that Kabambe is related to Mutharika, saying Kabambe comes from Thyolo West while Mutharika hails from Thyolo East.

He further condemned what he terms as propaganda to bar other people from joining the party and contesting during an elective convention.

DPP vice president for the south Kondwani Nankhumwa is still seen as the front runner for the party presidency.

But Kabambe’s entry to the race brings health competition.

These are efforts to frustrate Nankhumwa whom some DPP gurus don’t trust

I was listening to Dr dalitso kabambe in an galaxy fm program and suddenly macra messed with the galaxy fm signal just to interfere with his message. New party in power but same old tactics. Its useless to vote in Malawi let alone cancel elections, things never change.

Dalitso Kabambe has made the biggest mistake of his life. Malawi politics is not kind to PhD holders or intellectuals in general… Kabambe would have done well to continue with his banking/finance career. His experience as RBM Governor would make him a strong candidate for senior positions at WB, ADB, IMF, COMESA, etc. Even locally he could be very competitive whenever there was a CEO vacancy at any of our local banks. Remember Pelekamoyo at Opportunity and NFB? Or Victor Mbewe at Stanbic? A career in politics will just erode most of his hefty gratuity from RBM – with nothing… Read more »
