Thom Mpinganjira rejects fake news linking him to DPP leadership race: ‘No political ambitions’

Business mogul Dr. Thomson Frank Mpinganjira who  retired from FDH Financial Holdings Limited, 21 years after he started the process of setting up the first ever home grown indigenous Malawian privately owned bank, has rubbished  as “fake” reports linking him to the leadership race in the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Mpinganjira says reports linking him to politics are fake and malicious

Social media platforms has been circulating pictures of aspirants to the DPP presidency and Mpinganjira’s photo was one of them.

However, in an interview on Friday morning, Mpinganjira said he was not amused to be linked to political leadership contest when he has not aspired.

“This is fake, I am not contesting for any political position in any political party,” said the distinguished entrepreneur.

Mpinganjira added: “I am not contesting. I don’t have any political ambitions.”

He added: “I hold no ambitions to participate in politics.”

Mpinganjira is a well-known philanthropist and has been locally and internationally recognized in his personal capacity and as founder of FDH Financial Holdings Limited.

He has been recognized as one of the world’s leading and successful professionals and was listed in the MADISONS WHO’s WHO of Professionals and in the Sterling Who’s Who for Excellent Performance and Achievement and won the Capital Finance International (CFI) Outstanding Corporate Leader Africa Award in 2015 and the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation first Innovations Awards as Large Scale Entrepreneur of the Year in 2016.

Recently the All Africa Business Leaders Awards (AABLA) shortlisted him in the Business Leader of the Year and Entrepreneur of the Year categories for Southern Africa.

Most Malawians remember Mpinganjira for his extraordinary compassion and sense of assisting those less fortunate than himself especially when he took a personal commitment to build a house full with solar lighting for a Dowa woman after her both hands were chopped off by a violent husband and support her livelihood.

He has inspired the present day popular FDH Cares corporate social responsibility program that focusses on health, education and sports development.

Mpinganjira retired at FDH Bank plc after it  become the first ever indigenous Malawian privately founded business to be publicly listed. on the Malawi Stock Exchange.

He  has since set up the Thomson and Barbara Foundation to help his vision of doing charity and assisting young entrepreneurs.

One important quality of an effective leader is Morals and he lucks morals. He will simply be another thief at the state house. Why are we even talking about him in the state house. We have many better leaders with the right morals. Having lots of Money alone is not enough as a leader, we have all seen in the USA withTrump. Let the judges put Mpinganjiraa in his rightful corner ” Innocent until proven guilty”…i patiently wait

Because of his accomplishments people definitely will want to give him a chance. We will force him to be our president. We the people are the ones who chose. Za thyolo ziri be ntchito

Hate it or take it but it's a fact

Ofcourse he is one of the cream of Malawi but u forgot one thing to mention as being the first Malawian to be accused of allegedly trying to bribe the Concourt Judges during p presidential court case of 2019.

Regardless of who stands for DPP in 2025, the party will not get the required 50% + 1. In other words, it will take a decade or more for this bunch of thieves to win again.
