Vice President of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Dr Hetherwick Ntaba said the former ruling party is getting attractive to Malawians and many members of other parties will be joining it.
Ntaba was speaking the party’s headquarters at Old Wenela in Malawi’s capital in Lilongwe on Friday when
DPP top leaders were welcoming Fraser Chulu who until his defection was the ruling Peoples Party’s central region province secretary.
“The members rejoining DPP are being attracted by the good policies and leadership that we have,” said Ntaba.
“We are very excited as a party that more people are coming to join us, this is a clear indication that there must be something good in DPP than other parties. We are expecting more people to join us,” Ntaba said.
Speaking at the same function, DPP secretary general Dr Jean Kalilani said Chulu is a “welcome addition” to the party rank and file.
“As a party we would like to encourage those willing to join us that the door is open, we are happy that people are coming to join us this is a true that we will bounce back in 2014” Kalilani added.
Speaking after welcoming him, Chulu said he decided to dump the PP because of lack of visionary leadership on the part of President Joyce Banda and the party as a whole.
Chulu also made a shocking revelation that PP has no structures on the ground and also said he made a research which is showing that DPP is going to win the 2014 tripartite elections claiming out of 10 people, 6 people say they will vote for DPP.
Apart from Ntaba and Kalilani, the function had other top DPP Chimwemwe Chipungu, Ben Phiri and Bessie Chirambo.
