Mutharika declares he is only leader until 2023 elective convention: No factions in DPP

President Peter Mutharika  has stressed that he is the only leader of the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and warned party leaders against creating ‘camps’ within the party.

Mutharika said this Sunday on  arrival  home from the United Kingdom where he attended the UK-Africa Investment Conference.

The Malawi leadr,  who was welcomed by Vice President Everton Chimulirenji and other senior government and DPP officials, said the party would choose his successor at a national convention in 2023 and that no-one should harbour leadership ambitions now since “there is still a lot of time to go”.

“These things of camps must stop; APM [Arther Peter Mutharika] is the only leader of this party; all aspirants should exercise patience,” said the President.

He said the DPP is a family whose members must be united to ensure that it remains strong ahead of the next general elections due  in 2024.

Mutharika advised the party followers to unite and strengthen the party at all levels.

The President, despite the jet lag on the 12 hour flight from London, did not look shaken  at all with the expected electoral case ruling expected to be delivered this week following the petition launched by the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM, challenging his victory in 2019 polls.

Mutharika has always argued that he  is convinced  he won the polls and what Malawi Electoral Commission ( MEC) announced is a true reflection of people’s will.

I am surprised you have waited this long to inform us about DPP leadership. We have all along known that there is a mess in DPP with even the so-called cadets issuing orders without the Authorities reprimanding them. It looks everybody fears everyone. Wa Jeffrey says this today and Mchacha says something different the following day while Mphepo thinks he is the proper Spokesperson for the party and we’ve never heard of anyone being reprimanded. Take the recent Bribery Issue. How on earth would someone draw billions of Kwachas from a DPP account (or should we say account number one)… Read more »
