People’s Party (PP) publicity and administrative secretary Ken Msonda said he went to meet former vice president Khumbo Kachali in Mzimba to various issues aimed at rebuilding the party.
Msonda confirmed that he was accompanied to the meeting by another party member, Caesar Fatch.
He also said they reached out to Salim Bagus who had obtained an injunction stopping the appointment of Uladi Mussa as the party’s acting president and Kamlepo Kalua as third vice-president.
The injunction was vacated by High Court in Mzuzu.
Msonda said the meetings were meant to encourage “dialogue” and resolved the differences in the party.
Kachali—one of PP’s potential candidates for presidency— confirmed the meeting but kept his comments close to the chest.
The former vice president was declared PP leader by his political errand boy former provincial chairperson Christopher Mzomera Ngwira (legislator for Mzimba Hora) following Joyce Banda’s failure to return home.
PP acting president Mussa however expressed ignorance of such meetings.
He accused Kachali for being “used” by other forces to weaken PP.
Mussa said Kachali and Ngwira hired “thugs” to attack him in Mzuzu when he went there to conduct the regional meeting.
