Mulanje District Governor for ruling Peoples Party (PP) Peter Seguwa has announced his resignation from the party with immediate effect.
Seguwa said he has resigned from the party because of what he called poor administration in the PP.
He also said while the party claims to be democratic, he sees no sign of democracy, citing the resistance of some party gurus in the region to allow one Anne Zomba Kaitano to contest as member of parliament in Mulanje South Constituency where the current MP is Ritchie Muheya.
“I do not see democracy in the party. There was heavy resistance when Kaitano wanted to face Muheya in primaries. They said the party has enough candidates in the constituency yet it was only Muheya.
“ And immediately after the primaries where Muheya emerged winner, my office was treated as an area office with some things happening in the district without the knowledge of the district office,” Seguwa said.
Seguwa also claims that he had no right to organize a rally in Mulanje South constituency as each time he had tried to do so, his efforts were frustrated.
PP Regional Governor for the south Isaac Nyakamera in an interview said he is not aware of Seguwa’s resignation and referred this reporter to Minister of Information Brown Mpinganjira who also expressed ignorance on the development but indicated Seguwa was not happy that Muheya won the primaries.
“That is news to me. All I know is that Mr Seguwa was not happy when the election results were in favour of Muheya. Beyond that, I do not know anything. May be you should contact Muheya,” Mpinganjira said.
However, Muheya said Seguwa should be frustrated because he was supporting the lady who massively lost the primaries.
“All the other things he is saying have no basis,” Muheya said.
Seguwa has since indicated that he is ready to join any party that shows interest in him. He, however, indicated that if the PP feels there is need for talks with him, he is available to return.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
