George Zulu has resigned as deputy secretary general of the opposition Peoples Party (PP) and withdrawn his membership from the party.
Zulu who was elected by the party’s politbulo to deputize Ibrahim Matola is said to have since joined Malawi Congress Party (MCP).
In his interview with the local media, Zulu accused the PP of nepotism.
He alleged that PP favours people from the southern and northern regions to fill top positions leaving out those from central region.
PP Publicity Secretary, Ken Msonda said they haven’t received his letter of resignation.
”In the absence of that information we reserve our coment,” said Msonda.
Msonda however said it is every citizen’s constitutional right of association.
”PP is very democratic; we respect people’s rights. Suffice to say in PP we are a family and loss of any member is regrettable. We wish him well,” added Msonda.
Zulu claimed to have handed his resignation to the party’s president Joyce Banda who happens to be outside the country.
