Jumbe was welcomed into the DPP at a function in Salima soon after President Peter Mutharika had unveiled a foundation stone for the China Africa Textile Company.

The parliamentarian  said he was happy to work with the governing party  after long time of fighting his own political party which later expelled him.

Otherwise it will be true of Malawians that “”youth is being wasted on the young people. Ana inu Dzukani…….dzikoli ndi lanu.
