Senior Chief Mlumbe introduces shadow MPs for DPP in the area

President Peter Mutharika was at Jali in Zomba Likangala on Monday to canvass votes for himself and his party in the run up to the 2019 general election.

“These are the people who should work with me. They are all DPP,” said Chief Mlumbe.

The party is yet to conduct primary party elections to identify candidates who will represent the party during the party elections.

Traditional leaders are supposed to take a neutral stand during political activities.

“We will all vote for you, Mr. President because of your visionary leadership. We want the DPP back in government in 2019,” said Mlumbe.

President Mutharika thanked the chief for ‘giving the party three shadow MPs.

The regional governor for the DPP in the East,  Julius Paipi duly endorsed what the acting chief said, saying he was filled with excitement because of the accomplishments of Mutharika and DPP in the country.

DPP vice president for the eastern region Bright Msaka said the chief was right to say that in 2019, all the parliamentary and local government seats in Zomba will go to the DPP.

Zadapo, you have the same responsibility as Kusamba Dzonzi of communicating MCP policies to Malawians. Dzonzi communicated the MCP policy of not developing the north until they demonstrate improvement in their fertility. Zadapo is also communicating MCP’s manifesto of ending chieftaincy in Malawi. This is not new. Who ended Mwase’s chieftaincy in Kasungu if not MCP? Who beat the Chiefs at a convention in Mzuzu for simply pleading with Kamuzu to forgive Manoa Chirwa if not MCP?
Mafumu chenjerani, MCP sinasinthe. Mukafuna tsogolo labwino memani anthu anu adzavotere Mutharika mwezi wa May 2019.

Chiefs have become obsolete. We MUST abolish mafumu if we are to develop.

And the President is happy with such a clueless chief.?


In short, the chief has divided the party further. Such pronouncements are dangerous. You had to wait for primaries. Let the people decide
