PP top officials lose hope in Joyce Banda, bank on Chakwera

172

Reports reaching Malawi24 indicates that some People’s Party (PP) top officials have lost hope in their leader Joyce Banda and have since banked their trust on Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leader Lazarus Chakwera to take them through 2019.

A source close to the party’s national executive committee told our reporter on Tuesday that there are divisions among top officials as some believes Banda is no longer serious with the party while others believes she may come and lead them again.

He said most of the top officials are not happy with the tendency of their leader to keep a tight lid on her homecoming and they feel she no longer deserves to lead PP because her behavior has proved to be a gateway to the party’s decline.

Joyce Banda

Not trust on here

“Not everyone is happy with Joyce Banda this time. Her delay to come home has made most officials to lose hope and have since banked their hope in Chakwera,” said the source who was speaking on condition of anonymity.

He went on to claim that there is mistrust among NEC members as some are not aware of the day Banda may come to Malawi while others know but hide the information from their colleagues.

“Some even doubt if she will come home again. To them the justification she gives for not coming back does not hold water, they feel no one can kill her just that she fears unknown threats,” he added.

According to the source, most top officials expect the party to perform poorly in the 2019 elections because they have not sat down to mull over the way forward since they lost the last tripartite elections.

This is why they think Chakwera and his MCP have done much to claim victory than them.

The revelations come barely days after the party’s leader in Parliament Uladi Mussa suggested his party’s zeal to merge with MCP in the 2019 elections.

Mussa told the masses that the two are already in good terms thus the coalition may see them bring in a government which will benefit Malawians.

When pressed to comment on the merger, MCP spokesperson Jessie Kabwila maintained that the two indeed share common goals but was then quick to clarify that no talks on the move have been done so far.

“We indeed share common goals but then we haven’t held any talks on the matter. I believe that if they are serious they will consult us to discuss the thing,” said Kabwila.

Efforts to get views from PP spokesperson Ken Msonda proved futile.

No wonder, lero mukumva nyunyunyu coz onse amene anali ndi Prof APM mchipululu muja lero akuchita kubeba..!!

  7. Anthu ena adadzolowera kubwebweta, clinging to DPP without any sense.There is no way Mutharika can win if elections were held genuinely in 2019. What PP officials should do is to defunct their party and join forces with MCP. A top PP official should partner Dr Chakwera as runningmate to him. The problem with Malawian politics is that politicians have false hopes thinking on their own they can win elections. Malawi is too small to have too many parties. Bad leaders are being elected out of this mistake.It is sad people who were in Malawi fighting Kamuzu are being denied opportunity to rule while returnees are enjoying the fruits of other people’s labour.

  8. Mgwirizano winanso? Ndiye opanga nawo mgwirizano akewo.. PP? Koma Nyuwano! Ukhwirii chichi? MCP simalapadi eti?

  14. An alliance between MCP and PP will bring more harm than good to MCP. Memories are still fresh on how PP handled cashgate. Besides, PP is a spent force as evidenced by its loss in its own backyard. Malawians will never trust PP again unless they hold a convention and elect new blood to kead the party.

  15. I now believe that MCP is the best party for Malawi. I was born after 1994 and I have seen developments which were made by MCP under Kamuzu Banda. I have come to a conclusion that MCP did a good job is this country than these other parties combined. Zakuti ena mumati ndi chipani chakupha is immaterial.
    The MCP guys have a better vision for Malawi.

  16. AFULUMILA !! M’nene zinthu ziliri pano munthu akhoza kukhala pansi ndikudzifunsa kodi pomadzafika 2019 tidzakhala tili pati.Kunja kuno kuli MULUNGU zimene Mulungu wakonza ndikufuna kuthandiza MALAWI kuti achoke mu umphawi .Umphawi ndi chinthu choipa pa dziko ,Mwini wake Mulungu zinamukhudza ndi chifukwa chake analowelera ndi kuika ndondomeko yake kuti umphawi uchoke Ku Malawi.

  17. My foot! You MCP and PP, why are you blind even up to now that you do not imagine who the next president in 2019 is and you suggest Chakwera will be. May I warn you that Chakwera’s blood will be on to you and your children. I have said before that Chakwera deserted the AG flock and chose politics. Ask AG Christians if they are happy with what he did? God will not allow Chakwera to be Malawi’s president in 2019. It is Peter and DPP. Mark my words! those of you saying nyoooo nyoooo against Mapwiya Mung’onong’ono what will happen next year from July. You will see. Peter ndi katundu and DPP is Malawi’s ruling party until Jesus comes.

  18. Mukazawona kuti anthu akulowa ku Chipani chotsutsa Boma dziwani kuti Chipani chomwe chikulamula ndiye kuti ndimbola. First term ya Bingu aliyense anasangalala naye ndipo anthu amangolowa ku chipani cholamula. Koma first term ya akulu awa yayamba kale kuwawa ndiye mwati ameneyu 2019 azayimeso?

  20. PP and MCP have been bed fellows since PP took over from DPP in 2012. Hon JZU supported mama JB throughout her presidency. They seemed to have fallen out towards 2014 elections because of MCP did not want to be associated with PP malpractices including cash scandal of 2013.
    However, despite those blocks in their working alliance, these parties have been night time lovers and day time friends. Remember, Local media reported of night meeting between Mr Chakwera and Madam Banda in the run-up to 2014 elections. Remember madam Banda in defiance to DPP Election victory single handedly judged that, there must be a rerun where she would not be a candidate. This in my opinion suggested, she was in favour of MCP winning elections.
    It may not be wrong now, for someone believe that, top PP officials are partnership with Hon Chakwera. It is there choice and have rights to so decide.
    However it must be stressed or mentioned here without provocation of ambiguity that the power is in electorate. I have memories of how alliances failed to win in the past. Chakuamba and Chakufwa Chihana failed to unseat Bakili in 2009. Mgwirizano of Chakuamba and his Republican and other parties of 2004, failed to defeat AFORD and UDF alliance. Bingu won!
    Similarly, imagine DPP UDF alliance in 2019 presumably? PP is almost dead in Southern Malawi. Talk of PP in centre and north. North is divided into all parties. So too is centre politics since advent of multi-party politics. Ntcheu belongs to South. Nkhota-Kota, Salima, Kasungu, Dedza are always unpredictable. Lilongwe city is for all. Only rural is counted on MCP. Believe you me there is no alliance as yet that would unseat DPP-UDF’s.
    Madam Banda knows exactly why she is on the run. Look, all former presidents and prominent politicians are in Malawi. Muluzi is here. Malewezi, Kaka Chilumpha, KK munyane, nangaule akupulikikwa, is here. Banda is fearing own shadow!

  21. Stupid atolankhani, simufuna kuwauchilungamo amalawi, you are very stupid and very sheme. Nthawi yabingo chithandizo kunalibe all donors was disappear, nthawi ya joice banda zinthu zinaenda bwino all donors was appear, nthawi ya piter zinthu zikuvuta and we have no donors, WHY? Please tell the malawian true th abaut malawi. Anda you all media you have right to say the true th. Inunso amalawi kaya ndi mphepo yachamba ankasuta ambuyanu simutha kulingalila kuti kumene tachoka kunali bwanji, kukhuta kwalelo osati mpakana mawa ai. Ufunika tsiku lililonse uzikhuta. Nthawi ya compain mumalandila ma 1000 kwacha ndikumusankha munthu wachabe. Kupusa kwanu. Boma liganizepo apa tsopano kampeni azipangika pa wayalesi ndi pa tv basi zamatishirt ndi zitenje zithe. Ndizo zikupeleka chitsokonezo. Anthu opanda nzelu inu.

  22. Good ideas for joining MCP early. Chakwera is the best Leader compared with nkhalamba Ibu Iphuphu Mutharika. Ndizakhala pambuyo pa MCP mpaka kalekale.

  23. siyeni joicy kayasabwera kayaya azabwera ndi opama basi pano chitukuko conse cili mmanja mwa peter tiyeni tizinena ndi peter joyce ndi oluza chakwera ndi osusa boma msaiwale kuti achair nati wakubuyo saiba beru amai.anacitapo zawo kwasara kwara kwa bambo peter. zikamkanika asaza namizire mnthu cashngate ndi zithu zondusa zakale zapita zsala zatsono.
