Nangwale tips ‘Friends of DPP’ in UK

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.

Nangwale: Dont bring shame to your country

“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.
