Nankhumwa says solidly behind Mutharika on the way to victory

Contrary to social media reports that Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Kondwani Nankhumwa will dump the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  of President Peter Mutharika to join Tonse Alliance led  Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera ahead of the Tuesday’s fresh presidential election, the youthful politician was on Friday  aggressively addressing DPP campaign meetings in Blantyre Rural West and East, drumming up support for the Mutharika-Atupele Muluzi DPP-UDF ticket.

In a brief interview with Nyasa Times at one of the venues at Chaweta in Blantyre Rural East, Nankhumwa laughed off gossip about his defection, saying there is nothing true about it.

“I am a loyal son of His Excellency President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and the DPP family. Make no mistake about; I will die a member of this party,” said the soft-spoken DPP Vice President responsible for Southern Region.

Social media has been awash with claims that during a campaign rally slated for Sunday at Njamba Park in Blantyre, Tonse Alliance running mate and UTM leader Saulos Chilima will unveil Nankhumwa as Tonse alliance ‘new catch’.

During the Blantyre rural tour, Nankhumwa and UDF VP for South, Lancy Mbewe and the entire entourage stopped over at Namwanje to briefly attend a funeral of Group Village Namwanje’s nephew.

On Saturday, June 20, 2020, Nankhumwa heads to Nsanje South where he will drum up support of the Peter Mutharika-Atupele Muluzi DPP-UDF alliance presidential ticket.

I respect Nankhumwa. You never hear him talk bad of anyone. If he clings to DPP, he still would make a very powerful leader of opposition in parliament. He is constructive. Either way he is an asset to the nation

This was Nankhumwa own making to fool others in DPP that he is more relevant than other DPP officials bcoz even the opposition want him.
He used his Journalists to write these nonsense on social media, for him to remain relevant to the party (DPP) coz he is loosing morale with the coming in of Atupele Muluzi .

One of Nankhumwa strategy was to use this tactic so that after Muntharika he should be the one leading DPP party when they are on opposition bench. He can fool u DPP Cadets but not all of us.

More Malawians realise the risk of bringing back mcp, that party which left 24,000 families in tears. The party which could punish the whole family for the one man’s sins. When a man broke the four cornerstones, he would go to prison, his kids were expelled from school, his wife lost their job and banned from the city. The punished family was then taken to the man’s home village to suffer while the man’s helpless parents watched. Azathu aku mangochi were often exiled to mchinji and dowa whereas mzimba sinners were exiled to nsanje.

Nankhumwa disputed all this long time ago. He has nothing to win by following Tonse. He could have followed Joyce Banda in 2012 but stuck with DPP when it was out of government. This is utterly fake news which can not shake and move him.

Of course Nankhumwa regrets being part of the DPP family. After next week Friday he will come clear that he us independent then after 4 months he will either join UTM or MCP.
