‘Am not joining DPP’ – Msonda
Former spokesperson for Peoples’ Party Ken Msonda has distanced himself from reports that he is planning to join the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
Speaking to the local media, Msonda wondered why people in the country are spreading stories that he has been given money by the DPP amounting to 12 million kwacha for him to join the party.
The politician claimed that these are just mere speculations and added that the truth is that he is still waiting for God’s voice on which party he should move to.
“God told me to join my former party, so it is the same God who will tell me which party should I join now and that is what I am waiting for now.
“Am not joining any party unless God tells me to do so because He is the one who told me to join and quit People’s Party,” he said.
Msonda then backed the PP to remain strong saying there are still people in the party who can manage it very well.
The former PP spokesperson announced his resignation from being the party’s publicist as well as member on September 15 saying he would like to concentrate on other things.
But he claimed that he will be back during the 2019 elections when he will contest as legislator for Rumphi East where he is expected to compete with PP vice president Kamlepo Kalua.
