Chikalimba, who is also Director of research for the  PP, appeared on the list of politicians DPP were vetting before accepting in their rank and file.

But like some politicians who have dismissed any link with DPP, he  has  also said he never wished to join DPP.

Chikalimba   said DPP has never been attractive ever since it formed government in 2014 and that he remains committed to PP.

He said Malawians needs  leadership  that can liberate the country from the numerous challenges being faced by focusing on persecuting poverty.

The lawmaker said  under DPP government many people have become frustrated and disillusioned following broken promises and empty rhetoric.

Last Sunday during a political rally President Peter Mutharika addressed at Masintha Ground in Lilongwe there were defections by several politicians, including members of Parliament (MPs) David Bisnowaty (Lilongwe City Centre Constituency), Patrick Makina (Zomba Ntonya) and Davis Katsonga (Mwanza Central),

DPP spokesperson Francis Kasaila said all newcomers were vetted before being accepted.

However, according to the DPP list seen by Nyasa Times, others are pending including former ministers Brown Mpinganjira and Henry Phoya.

All who joined DPP were announced at Masintha. These claimants are cheats, they just want to make a name out of nothing. Let us first hear from DPP itself that such such has joined us not from the claimants themselves. So who said Chikalimba has joined DPP? Chikalimba should tell us about the person who announced his defection to DPP. Otherwise he is just selling himself to a place where there is no market. After all what will Chikalimba profit by remaining in a sinking ship? Ntchentche yokanilira anaikwilira limodzi ndi mtembo.

Buying People, Isn’t It A Crime?


There is no vetting at DPP, they’re just busy buying stooge from the opposition. No one worthy the salt has joined DPP apart from empty opportunists.


Sorry DPP mwamwela za ndiwo

Strange!! Denying after reading in the papers.

I thought denial should have come after DPP tells the Nation.
Are you refusing the appointment by the media or DPP

Ali fredo

These people were supposed to be bought(paid) to join DPP.. Wina anadya ndalama za Peter, the fool was duped


You were vetted and found unsuitable. So if failed the test, you should tell us that you were not linked.
