Former Malawi Police chief Mary Nangwale has urged supporters of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) based in UK to play an active role within the DPP structures and to devotedly guard the values of their party.
Nangwale is an advisor of the newly formed DPP wing in the UK.
She was speaking at a meeting held in Bristol on Sunday 8th January, 2012.
Nangwale told the ‘Friends of DPP’ to make a reflection of what the ruling party has done in Malawi.
“There is development in our country, why don’t you talk about it? If only President Bingu wa Mutharika succeeded Kamuzu (first President of Malawi) our country could have been somewhere by now,” said Nangwale.
Nangwale added: “One becomes a leader only after being chosen by God, Bingu is a God chosen leader, let us all give him our support.”
She called on DPP supporters not to be party to elements of attacking their government on challenges it is facing.
“There are problems here in the UK, have you ever heard or seen any British person going around the world talking about their problems? Why do we Malawians shame ourselves?” asked a visibly upset Nangwale.
At the meeting, Sumanie Kazombo was ushered in as chairman. Other people put in positions were as follows; treasurer, Chimwemwe Nhlane, her deputy is Gesham Kazombo, secretary Rhoda Nyirenda, organising and communications officer, Sembe Gondwe.
Nangwale also disclosed that DPP Campaign Director, Ken Zikhale Ng’oma, will soon fly to the UK to address the group.
Meanwhile, the DPP UK wing agreed to hold a get together dance in Manchester City month end of January.
DPP UK wing was formed in 2006 but had died a natural death. Its founder chairman Mabvuto Bokosi returned to Malawi and a co-founder Prisca Juma Phiri is now heading an external wing of opposition Petra party.
Nangwale’s appointment by President Mutharika as the first woman inspector-general of police was rejected by Parliament which was then dominated by the opposition.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
