Wa Jeffrey boasts DPP to rule Malawi until 2084: Blind to the ‘dead end ahead!’ warning signs

The governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Secretary General, Griezedar Jeffrey wa Jeffrey, has said it is all about seizing absolute power and retaining it at all cost, nothing else matter, challenging that Malawi Congress Party (MCP) will never rule this country again as DPP will maintain its grip on power until 2084.

Wa Jeffrey: DPP will govern until donkeys grow horns

Wa Jeffrey was speaking Sunday during a political campaign rally President Peter Mutharika conducted at  Lunzu in Blantyre.

Also present at the rally were the Vice-President Saulos Chilima,  First Lady Gertrude Mutharika, Cabinet Ministers including Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Kondwani Nankhumwa, Minister of Information and Communications Technology Nicholas Dausi among  other DPP heavyweights.

Wa Jeffrey said DPP had received a number of applications from people expressing interests to join the party, a sign of sound and quality leadership in DPP.

“We will welcome as many people as we can and come 2019, DPP will win with a landslide victory,” she said.

Wa Jeffrey  hailed Mutharika for allowing members to join the party, saying it will help strengthen the DPP.

“And whether Satan wants it or not, DPP will rule up until 2084,” said Wa Jeffrey.

She also said MCP will not return to power as Malawians denounced the party and its rule in 1993.

The MCP lost its monopoly on power in a 1993 referendum and was roundly defeated in the country’s first free elections.

In opposition since 1994, the MCP remains a major opposition force in Malawi. It is strongest in the Central Region, populated by ethnic Chewa, most of whom are Christians. But lately MCP has been embraced by other ethnic groups, including the Muslim community.

However, The Nation newspaper columnist Moses Michael-Phiri  writes that the pendulum  for 2019 polls may  be swinging in favour of  MCP president Dr Lazarus Chakwera, who had to resign from leading Assemblies of God Church, a prestigious position that earned the man of the collar, a coveted place in international Christian .

“Well, political word on the street is that, MCP just like your old blazer is also slowly coming back into fashion.”

He noted  that those joining MCP, such as business mogul Nick Yiannakis, high profile politicians in the likes of Sidik Mia, Salim Bagus and  scores of  DPP  members led by Lilongwe City Council deputy mayor Juliana Kaduya, claim it is the only party that can lead Malawi out of corruption, nepotism and lack of rule of law.

Good afternoon Yahya Please answer me a few questions. Can you explain to all Malawians including all MCP supporters why people have been refusing to vote MCP back into power since 1994? Have MCP leadership try to find out why Malawians akuchimenya theche chipanichi for the previous five elections? What mistakes has the party corrected which made the party lose all the five elections? If the party does not know its past mistakes there is no way the mistakes can be corrected. And because there is no correction the party will still be losing elections. MCP is shivering when it… Read more »

MCP Supporter or whatever you call yourself you are a dreamer. Mia’s mother is not black. if you don’t know anything don’t pretend to be cleaver in the eyes of the public. Clever people always keep quiet. Mia’s mother is coloured so too was his father who died a few years ago. Mia’s father is not Portuguese – both his mother and father are Senas from Nsanje who moved to Makande , Ngabu where Sidik Mia was born. If you want to know more details ask Gerald Viola because they grew up together, played together and went to Chikwawa Secodary… Read more »

Santana you are equally blind. Which constituent has Msonda ever won? We know BJ wants to stand as a Parliamentary candidate, but where when he has been floored twice by Nankhumwa at Chisitu. He will even lose to Nakhumwa in the primary an knowing BJ, he will stand as an independent because he is power hungry just like Nankhumwa. That will be the beginning of chipasu-pasu in DPP. Can’t you see that these are liabilities? Who doesn’t know that DPP is using the money it is stealing from us to buy these recycled politicians and the so called followers the… Read more »

Wa Jeffrey is talking realities on the ground. MCP HAS BLIND FOLLOWERS WHO DO NOT QUESTION THEIR LEADERS WHY THE PARTY HAS BEEN FAILING IN ALL THE FIVE ELECTIONS. If the party does not even know why it has been goofing how can it correct itself in readiness of a win? Can you compare Bagus to Mpinganjira? Can you compare Yiannaks to Msonda? We want people who when they talk they can move people. How many people can YIANNAKS bring to MCP? Havent you seen in Lunzu that BJ brought to DPP the whole committee? What other help did you… Read more »

This woman doesn’t know modern politics sure. When people know you your party has been stealing their money what do you think they would do in order to get their money back without sweating? You just have to wait and see since people do not vote openly.

Could be that she knows what we don’t know? Vote buying, rigging etc etc etc. Just shows that they basically take the electorate for granted. Nobody in their right mind would utter such words unless they have a good basis for saying so. Personally, I just think there is no way the current government would retain rule knowing how enlightened the Malawian voting is becoming. So many wrongs and few rights. They do not really stand a chance in a fairly fought electoral battle. But on the other hand, we must also look at the opposition and the fragmentation across… Read more »
