Msonda open to join DPP
Despite holding his cards close to his chest on the reasons why he chose to quit Peoples Party (PP), Ken Msonda has disclosed that he will join the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) if ‘God’ gives him a directive.
Speaking on the local press on Tuesday night, Msonda disclosed that Malawi politics is dynamic in nature hence the reason to have recycled politicians.
He added that he could not remain in PP because he has some ambitions.
“Every person has ambitions, if you don’t have one, then that’s a problem, am moving with time and if God directs me to join DPP, who am I to deny. Let me remind you they are the same people who clapped for Kamuzu Banda, then Bakili Muluzi, later late Bingu wa Mutharika and to Dr. Joyce Banda,” said Msonda.
The former PP spokesperson then admitted meeting the DPP vice President for the northern region Goodall Gondwe who is also the country’s finance minister.
Msonda announced his resignation from being PP publicist as well as member on September 15 saying he would like to concentrate on other things.
However, his resignation raised eyebrows as people speculated that he was on the move to join the ruling DPP after being given millions of money, reports which he downplayed.
