Mpinganjira says DPP to move on with convicts Uladi, Mzomera

The main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) spokesperson Brown James Mpinganjira says the party’s executive committee will soon nominate individuals to replace convicts Uladi Mussa and Reverend Christopher Mzomera Mgwira, who until their conviction were serving as Vice President for Central Region and Northern Region Governor, respectively.

Mpinganjira (L) says convicted Uladi Mussa (c) will be replaced

Mussa was convicted on 13 October on two counts of corrupt practises by the High Court in Lilongwe.

He committed the offences when he was the Minister of Homeland Security between 2012 and 2014 during the Joyce Banda’s People’s Party (PP) administration.

Mussa is remanded at Maula Prison waiting for sentencing on October 22.

While Mgwira has been sentenced to four years Imprisonment with Hard Labour for abuse of office and mismanagement of Constituency Development Fund (CDF). He committed the offence between 2009 and 2010 when he was the Member of Parliament for Mzimba Hola.

And commenting on the developments, Mpinganjira said it was a big blow to the party, which is in the rebuilding process and banks on politicians of Mussa’s and Mgwira’s calibre.

He, however, said the party will come to terms with reality and that some individuals within the party’s rank and file  will take up the positions.

“As a party, we would have loved to complete the rebuilding exercise together with Mussa and Ngwira, but the gods of justice, have decided otherwise. Justice has taken its course and we will move with rebuilding exercise. We will not allow the conviction of the two to distruct efforts, which there to reorganize the party.

“Soon, the central committee will meet to nominate equally capable individuals to replace them,” said Mpinganjira, who replaced Nicholas Dausi as the party’s Publicity Secretary.

Meanwhile, lawyer for Ngwira, Victor Gondwe stated that they will appeal the four years sentence, arguing his client was a first offender and deserved a lenient sentence.

Mzomera is the first DPP senior official to be sentenced to prison since the party lost the country’s Presidency to Tonse Alliance in 23 June Presidential poll.

Other DPP officials are answering numerous charges bordering on inciting violence, fraud and corruption.

Bwana Mpinganjira incase you don’t know, plz expect more convicts,all these DPP thieves will come out of jail at the end of 2025, just for the sake of fresh air. Imagine the likes of Henry Mussa, Peter Mutharika, Norman Chisale, Mukhitho, Mchacha the list is endless. Just start to recruit new blood before it’s too late

“The gods of justice have decided otherwise… ” . Brown Mpinganjira, you are a born-again Christian and, purportedly, a man of God. Do you believe there are other gods which disperse justice?

Alamu Pumani Mwakalamba

What about Nankhumwa and others? When are you replacing them? Surely dpp trusts BJ Mpinganjira? Tambwali ngati uyu.

Indeed. Its Bakili Muluzi who brought all this nonsense in Malawi. We should have been like Singapore by now. From 1964 to 1994 this country was moving.
