The People’s Party (PP) continues to lose its members and the latest to leave is the party’s national organising secretary Salim Bagus.
Bagus has joined the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
Making the announcement at a DPP rally, the politician said he want to work with the ruling DPP in addressing the challenges that have rocked the country.
“In Malawi, we have a problem that the opposition always points fingers at government without offering solutions, some of the challenges we are going through have been brought in by Professor Peter Mutharika, I will now work with government,” said Bagus.
DPP’s regional governor for the south, Charles Mchacha, said the move is a testimony of the productive work the party has achieved in the two years that it has been in power.
Since PP president Joyce Banda left the country after the May 2014 polls, the party has witnessed a massive exodus and internal squabbles over the choice of Uladi Mussa as interim leader.
