I didn’t join DPP: PP MP denies moving to ruling party

Opposition People’s Party (PP) legislator for Mzimba South Makwenda Chunga has denied joining ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) arguing he greeted President Peter Mutharika at a rally to avoid embarrassing him.

The sentiments follow announcement by DPP secretary general Greselder Jeffrey at the launch of integrated urban water and sanitation project by Northern Region Water Board (NRWB) in Mzimba district that Chunga is among the ten people who had joined the ruling party.

Chunga: I did not join DPP

Chunga then was seen to have gone where President Mutharika was to give him a greeting as sign for defecting to the ruling party.

But Chunga has denied joining the party arguing he did not want to embarrass the president by snubbing him.

“I left my seat to greet the president after my name was announced that I was joining DPP to avoid embarrassing the president as the head of state, people from my constituency should believe me, when I will be changing the party I will consult them,” said Chunga.

At the launch of the project in Mzimba, DPP authorities cited a number of projects that the party has spearheaded during its era and urged people to vote for it during 2019 general elections.

The party also claimed that it is to win the elections since it has developed the northern region through equal sharing of projects among all the three regions.
