Opposition Peoples Party (PP) acting president Uladi Mussa says his party will join forces with other political parties to oust the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government in 2019 elections.
Mussa said this on Sunday at a political rally he addressed at Jenda in Mzimba.
“The people have the power to get rid of the government that is insestive to their problems,” said Mussa, a political orator.
“ We, as a party, we will join forces with other political parties so that we remove this government lawfully from power during the 2019 elections,” he said.
He said it was insestive for the government to order Admarc charge more for maize than vendors.
“Admarc was established to help poor Malawians, to provide services to Malawians, DPP is a party with upside down,” he said.
Mussa said it was unheard of that Admarc is charging its maize more than the vendors.
He then lined up more than a dozen of what he called failures of the Peter Mutharika government, justifying his call to have it toppled at the ballot box during the 2019 elections.
Mussa also accused the DPP of promoting naked tribalism and regionalism.
“This DPP government must go it has failed to rule this country, it is just promoting regionalism and tribalism”.
He added: “Northern region has got two cabinet Ministers, Central region two cabinet ministers all the 16 cabinet Ministers are from the South [and mostly the Lhomwe belt] is that the way we should be dividing the positions in the country, this is total regionalism.”
His sentiments comes barely two weeks after founder and president of the party Joyce Banda said she is ready to come back and vie for presidency should Malawians invite her.
Mussa however did not say whether his party would provide the presidential candidacy should the opposition parties make an alliance for the general election.
Peoples Party is in working alliance with the main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party, in parliament.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
