Dr Joseph Chidanti Malunga quits DPP.

Announcing this to Malawi24 in an interview, Malunga said he has decided to go back to being an independent MP after the DPP failed to fulfil its promise of assisting the people of his constituency.

“I can confirm to you that following the calls from my constituents who ushered me to this position, DPP has failed my people and then it’s better to go back to my independent bench. You know that this is an elected position so I have to listen to my people,” explained Malunga when quizzed to state reasons for his decision.

Malunga who is also Chairperson for Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture has however trashed claims by DPP’s spokesperson Francis Kasaila that he joined DPP because of personal interests which have not been fulfilled.

Malunga also denied dumping the party because he was not given any position.

“I joined the party with an interest that it could develop my area. But since I joined nothing tangible has been made in my constituency hence my resignation,” revealed the lawmaker.

    • The guy is a genius DPP is a failed political party and it has run out of steam. Whether it is true that DPP in Nsanje they are endorsing a new candidate it does not matter what matters is doing what is in the best interest of the people of Nsanje and Malawi at large. An MP his job is not to give you food neither make you enjoy football leagues; his duty is to make propose and make policies that will develop the constituency they are there to create a conducive environment for us citizen to play our part to earn a living. Chidanti spoke against the people who wanted to grab land in Nsanje and plant bananas when your mafumu atagwilizana kugulitsa malo azilimapo nthochi. Chidanti has seen that DPP has run out of steam he doesnot want to go down with DPP. If indeed you are from Nsanje for how long has your district being supplied with electricity from October to December; 12 Pm to 3 Am, this has put a lot of people out of business. Barber shops, computers beureas etc. DPP is a failed political party. Full of corruption; maizegate, cashgate, Embassygate the list goes on and on.
