Nankhumwa says meeting with Mutharika fails to reach consensus: ‘Mpinganjira statement is shameless fabrication’

The former ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) vice-president (South) Kondwani Nankhumwa, who is also leader of opposition (LoP) in Parliament, has confirmed that he met immediate past president  Peter Mutharika on Sunday at his beachside villa in Mangochi to discuss the party crisis but could not agree to pull in one direction.

Nankhumwa: There were many issues that we discussed but we did not reach a consensus on most of them and agreed that talks must continue until we conclusively resolve the issues

Nankhumwa  said the meeting  with Mutharika took place in “a very cordial environment” but  dismissed a statement issued by party spokesman Brown Mpinganjira that he agreed to relinquish the position of Leader of the Opposition and pay way for Francis Kasaila to take the title.

He also denied that he undertook to direct his legal team to seek an indefinite adjournment of the case  in which Nankhumwa,  secretary general Grezelder Jeffrey, treasurer general Jappie Mhango and Mulanje West legislator Yusuf Nthenda obtained an injunction against the party’s decision to expel them.

Mpinganjira statement said the adjournment would  pave way for the resolution of the matter by the parties to the case through mediation using the existing structures for dispute resolution within the party.

But Nankhumwa said such claims are “patently false” and a “shameful fabrication”.

Said Nankhumwa: “There were many issues that we discussed but we did not reach a consensus on most of them and agreed that talks must continue until we conclusively resolve the issues.”

Nankhumwa said he agreed with Mutharika that a date would be appointed in due course to “continue discussions and that where a consensus shall be reached, the two parties shall issue a joint press statement.”

Meanwhile, Nankhumwa said his focus remains on the court case  they  are contesting the DPP Central Committee’s decision to expel them from the party as earing of the case continues on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.

We are not concerned with these useless internal battles. As leader of opposition we want you to speak on what Chikhosi is doing by creating positions in government system to fill them with MCP thugs and one of the thugs is Bendulo who has been given a big post as Director of innovation a post that never existed in government but has been created just for this thug. We have civil servants who have worked all these years and would like to rise to such top positions but they are being stopped by these stupid appointments. we know these illiterates… Read more »

Well done honourable Nankhumwa! Teach these old men politics! Both APM and BJ Mpinganjira are old and do not have the appeal to the masses. The time to worship leaders is gone and a young politician like you has to stick to principles. No retreat no surrender!

This lake shore guy is just clinging to power for nothing and the Mpinganjiras only want to eat well with Peter and nothing at all. Kondwani has no basis certificate but the law backs him to be (LoP) and that of opposition.

The good thing is that Nankhumwa,s position is backed by law. Its his party’s Parliamentarians who elect this position.
