Opposition People’s Party (PP) has, for the second time, fired its controversial provincial chairperson for the northern region Christopher Mzomera Ngwira and has since replaced him with Sherbone Mchizi in an acting capacity.
Ngwira confirmed receiving his dismissal letter signed by PP’s vice-president (central region), Uladi Mussa on Wednesday.
He was once dismissed from PP in September this year for creating ‘confusion’ in the party before its president Joyce Banda intervened and rescinded the decision.
Ngwira, according to the latest dismissal letter, he is being accused of destablizing the party, the accusation he denied.
He is reported to have obtained injunction stopping any party official from executing their duties without his consent.
But in an interview, Ngwira accused Mussa and other party officials of advancing hidden agenda rather than the party’s interest.
”I am accused of proposing honourable Khumbo Kachali who happens to be from north, to be the party’s interim president,” said Ngwira.
Ngwira accused Banda, currently outside the country, of appointing people who are not qualified to perfectly run the affairs of the party.
”The party needs a leadership chosen by people and not those appointed by one person. People are acting just to please her (Banda)”.
He added that some of the people in the party including Mussa were eying for Banda’s position and ”are doing everything possible to get rid of people like because I stand for the truth”,
He argued the choice of Kachali was based on his ability to lead and rebuild the party from the grassroot.
”I suggested honourable Kachili not because he is from north but because he has experience and he is loved by Malawians. While president Banda is outside, he can help to rebuild the party. He was
born a leader”.
Meanwhile, Ngwira said was consulting his followers on what action to take against the party following the dismissal.
In September Ngwira and Cliffer Kondowe were fired as provincial chairpersons for the north on accusations that the two were creating “confusion” in the party.
