Former president Peter Mutharika on Monday met the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regional committee for the north as the party fights a “rebel group” led by Kondwani Nankhumwa.
Mutharika has already met DPP regional committees for the south, eastern region and centre.
In his speech at his presidential retirement residence in Mangochi which is christened nyekhwe Palace, Mutharika told the regional committee members not to recognize the embattled vice president for the south, Nankhumwa and his “rebel” team involving party secretary general Grezelder Jeffrey and treasurer general Jappie Mhango.

Nankhumwa and his team are fighting their expulsion from the party in the court.
The regional committee was led by the vice president of the DPP for the north, Goodall Gondwe.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
