In a telephone interview on Thursday after reports emerged a section of some PP members had put up his name forward for PP leadership, Mia ruled himself out for that role?

“I am in Chikwawa at my farm. I am busy farming and no politics for me,” said Mia,

Asked if he had heard of the reporting that some PP officials would want to persuade him to rejoin the party he ditches when he served it as its vice president, Mia said he is “switched off” to politics.

“ My focus is on my farming business. I am out of touch with politics,” he said.

Mia continued to say that he has been linked with return to politics even with Malawi Congress Party, United Democratic Front and Democratic Progressive Party but that all are “unfounded rumours.”

“I had my time in politics, as of now let me do my business ,” he said.

PP dismiss ‘rumuors’

Meanwhile, PP spokesman Ken Msonda has said the reports linking politicians into the party’s leadership role are “undemocratic line of the thought and rumours “ which he said are being fabricated by their detractors.

He said th ir political competitors want to divert peoples’ attention from numerous economic and social challenges currently affecting Malawi and “the DPP administration’s failure to address these challenges.”

Msonda explained that PP Constitution stipulates that Joyce Banda is the party President till the party holds another convention in 2017.

“Those willing to re-join or joining the party should emulate Rt Hon Hastings Khumbo Kachali political maturity by rejoining or joining the party as members. Those vying for party leadership should wait for the convention in 2017,” said Msonda.

Mr. Mia, that’s now reasoning. don’t allow these people to spoil you. They do not want to work as you do but just to steal gvt. revenue.

I dont like Mia’s reason for not rejoining politics. It is childish, false and deamining of others. All policians leave their professions to join politics after being called by the suffering public to transfer their profession success to public service. Was Kamuzu not medicining, Muluzi not businesing, Bingu not economicsing, Joyce Banda not NGOing and Peter Muthalika not professoring when they were called to frontline politics? And you are insinuating their decisions were not in good faith. Come out bwana people want you osavutavuta ngat mukufunsiridwa ai? Let your madam and children do the farming while you keep these DPP… Read more »

Ken Msonda don’t waste your time sitting your fat ass on the floor at the Pps office.Mia is making a fortune in Lower Shire in his farming business.Even his cattle is listening to him.Joyce Banda has bolted and will never come back from her self exiled foreignland.She is even seeking asylum to spoil herself from the cashgate loot on her last days.Forget about this Pp thing.Pp is dead as Udf.The two contending parties in Malawi are Dpp and Mcp.Pezani chochita cha phindu A Msonda.Look at how Mia is enjoying at his quadbike while his beautiful Ngenge is following behind.A Msonda… Read more »

Thumbs up Hon Ken Msonda, always there to defend the party.
I’m not a politician but every time Ken Msonda opens his mouth to speak about something in connection to Malawi politics you can tell this man is indeed a born again Christian cum politician.
I just hope Joyce Banda sees the good work being done by her party spokesman but knowing African politics such people don’t benefit amadyera ndi ena, look at cashgate issue Msonda is not involved Joyce amadya ndi ena aboza akuba. SHAME! MUGANIZILENI MNYAMATAYU AMAI!
