The late Malawi president Bingu wa Mutharika’s legal adviser Allan Ntata says he is seriously contemplating running for the position of Secretary General of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
DPP has lost its secretary-general Wakuda Kamanga who has dumped the party to join the governing People’s Party.
The former ruling party will hold its national convention next month to elect a president and other leaders.
According to a statement sent to Nyasa Times by Ntata’s ally, Bright Malopa, the aspiring secretary-general served as a leading strategist for the DPP in the 2009 general elections.
Malopa said in the statement that Ntata is a “shrewed, witty and fearless strategist who can easily dislodge Joyce Banda with ease.”
According to Malopa, Ntata wants to rebuild DPP and help it “to reclaim government.”
He said Ntata will help the party to use technology and help it build relationship with the public
The aspiring secretary-general wants to “ensure that the DPP evolves into a stable, democratic, united and powerful party.”
Ntata also disclosed that the book he has written, Trappings of Power: Political Leadership in Malawi, due this December, will lay everything bare and expose double-faced politicians.
The former presidential legal adviser dismissed as untrue reports that he ran away from a crime, arguing he left the country to attend interviews in the UK where he now has a job.
But he has not disclosed his new job in UK.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
