Spokesman for Transformation Alliance quits, Chimbanga confirms he is out

Transformation Alliance (TA) spokesman Leornard Chimbanga has resigned from the political movement with immediate effect, Nyasa Times understands.

Alliance heavyweight Chimbanga quits

Chimbanga resigned from the TA barely a week the grouping held  their first-ever high-profile conference at the St Pius  Catholic Hall.

He confirmed exclusively to Nyasa Times on Wednesday that he has left TA.

“It is true I have tendered my resignation from Transformation Alliance,” he said in an interview.

He kept his comments close to the chest but  said the reasons for his resignation were ‘personal’.

“I want to pursue further studies and I need time to concentrate,” he added. ”I will be making no further comment at this time.”

Chimbanga has informed  TA chairperson Moses Kunkuyu about his resignation.

Kunkuyu, the first Cabinet minister to be appointed by former president Joyce Banda when she assumed power in April 2012 after the death of president Bingu wa Mutharika, has been stunned with the resignation.

“I support that Chimbanga pursue further studies,” Kunkuyu briefly said.

This is not the first time for Kunkuyu to be spearheading a political movement  as in 2011, while serving as a member of Parliament (MP) affiliated to the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) under Bingu, he also led Hope Alliance, a pressure group within DPP which later announced its working relationship with Joyce Banda following her coming into power.

The grouping full of opportunists, no need to have such groupings in Malawi just work with the Govt of the day for a common good.
