MP Chidumba Mkandawire joins DPP as Minister commissions Bumba Bridge in Rumphi
Rumphi Central Constituency Member of Parliament (MP) Macdowel Chidumba Mkandawire, who won on independent ticket in the May 21 Tripartite Elections, has joined the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
He made the announcement Monday when Minister of Transport and Public Works Ralph Jooma launched construction of Bumba Bridge in Rumphi.
Mkandawire said the decision did not come from the blues as his manifesto stated that he would work with government of the day once voted into power, to foster development for the constituency.
“I said it in my manifesto that once ushered into power I shall join the government of the day because this constituency has been in the opposition for a long time and this is why we have failed to develop the area,” he said.
He said State President Arthur Peter Mutharika’s leadership has demonstrated development orientation that will see implementation of various projects in the constituency.
“I should take this opportunity to thank the leadership of his Excellency Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika for favouring this area with development projects including the bridge we are launching today.
“I have a very good working relationship with the sitting government and I believe that this will continue for the benefit of the people of Rumphi.
“We will see more development projects coming because I will be lobbying from within,” Mkandawire said.
Minister of Transport and Public Works Ralph Jooma said Mkandawire’s decision was sign of trust people of Rumphi have in DPP’s governance.
“This shows people’s trust in the leadership of Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika’s government as the only government that is development conscious.
“The party will be coming very soon to officially welcome Mkandawire into the party,” Jooma said.

This is an insult to those who voted you. DPP is the most hated party for its corruption. Malawi is in reverse gear coz of DPP. Come 2024 ypu are out. Lowani gulu la akubalo tionana 2024. Bola nanunso muzimanga ma Singapore monga momwe DPP ikuchitilamu. Pathetic people. Thieves.
The kind of thinking by Chidumba Mkandawire is very pathetic.
Wayiwonera pa tali timing , otsutsa alibe chitukuko wayitha brother chitukuko chili ku DPP
working with government of the day doesn’t mean joining the political party. stupid understanding of the terminology.
u can work with government of the day extremely well by being independent u fool coz you will be able to provide the necessary checks and balances as a legislator without being aligned to the ruling party or opposition party. Your job will be to support projects by the govt (which is working with the govt) or object to stupid projects. Joining Dpp means that you have sold those powers u have you idiot. remain independent.
sadly another vote for the stupid stadium.
