Welcoming the new members was DPP’s National Campaign Director, Jappie Mhango, who expressed happiness that people are appreciating the good work DPP is doing in the country.

”We are happy that two members have joined the party and we will work with them,” Mhango said.

Mhango said that the members, Esnart Nyambari and Professor David Mbande, have joined a massive party that will rule up to 2040.

In his remarks, Mbande who was once a member of the DPP before defecting to PP, said that he was a lost sheep and has come to continue where he stopped.

Nyambari reiterated that she wants to work with the DPP in a more dedicated and diligent manner as she did with late Bingu wa Muthalika’s government.

About 88 other PP members defected to the ruling party on the same day.
