Malawi’s former ruling,Peoples Party (PP) has appointed Uladi Mussa as its acting Vice President, Malawi24 has learnt.
The appointment has been made by the party’s leader, Joyce Banda who remains outside Malawi.
It has come when the party has been under leadership woes as Banda has been accused of leading the party over the Internet.
A faction in the Northern region has been pushing the party’s leadership to rope in Khumbo Kachale to be the party’s interim president as Banda has been out of Malawi ever since she lost the polls in 2014.
Mussa has been vocal lately leading the party in parliament, despite calls by Christopher Mzomela Ngwira to have Kachale as the leader.
