Over 30 governors for People’s Party are calling for the resignation of the party’s vice president Uladi Mussa for sacking northern region governor Christopher Mzomera Ngwira.
The 30 constituency governors drawn from the central region backed Ngwira’s call to have Khumbo Kachale as caretaker president of the embattled party following the prolonged self imposed exile of its leader Joyce Banda.
“We have no leadership in the party. How can Honourable Uladi Mussa remove people from their positions willy nilly? Honourable Ngwira is an elected leader unlike Honourable Mussa who was just appointed. Honourable Mussa is the one to go not Honourable Ngwira,” said a Mr Ndaipa, governor for Kasumgu Central.
Bornwell Kapatuka Phiri, governor for Kasungu Buwa said Kachale was duly elected at a People’s Party convention and was the right candidate to lead the party in caretaker capacity.
Ngwira was sacked last week as regional governor for the north for agitating that Kachale be appointed caretaker leader in the absence of Banda.
The party leader went into the self imposed exile soon after losing the 2014 general election to President Peter Mutharika.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
