Mpasu, Kubwalo dispute Jumbe’s declaration, says NPL still existing

New Labour Party (NPL) executive members, led by former cabinet minister Sam Mpasu, have condemned and disputed former party’s leader Friday Jumbe’s declaration that NPL has been dissolved.

Addressing a news conference, Mpasu, Joseph Kubwalo, Alex Solanke and three others rejected Jumbe’s declaration and that they were not part of the decision to dissolve the party.

“The NEC wishes to assure all stakeholders in the national politics of Malawi, namely the Judiciary, the Malawi National Assembly, the Centre for Multiparty Democracy, the press, the donor community and all Malawians in general that the New Labour Party is still existence and has not been dissolved,” said NLP interim president Mpasu.

He accused Jumbe of dissolving the party without making proper consultations.

The NEC members claimed that Jumbe has “constructively resigned” from the party because he cannot serve it when he wanted it dissolved.

They have since appointed Mpasu as president, Kubwalo as vice president and Solanke is the secretary general, all in interim capacities.

In response, Jumbe said Mpasu and others are free to continue running the party if they feel so.

Jumbe announced through a news conference that NLP has been dissolved and urged party supporters to join ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Apparently, Jumbe still have running cases in court on corruption and his move to support DPP is viewed by analysts  as seeking amnesty from prosecution.
