DPP in trouble over blue night…CSOs threaten action

42

Legal expert Justin Dzonzi has faulted the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) for demanding city councils to contribute towards its blue night dinner and dance fundraising event in Lilongwe.

This follows reports that DPP approached the councils to contribute towards the dinner and dance with Blantyre City Council (BCC) contributing K5 million.

The development comes from the background of city councils having financial challenges for operations.

DPP on trouble,CSOs angered.

Workers from Mzuzu City Council are reported to have expressed dismay accusing their employer of funding the blue night dinner but failing to pay them their salaries. But the council said although it was approached, it did not give DPP the money because of its current financial situation.

Reacting to the reports, Dzonzi said the ruling party must refrain from abusing its powers by siphoning public resources.

“That’s the matter that concerns all Malawians, we have to keep in mind that city councils are funded by taxpayers, so taxpayers are all Malawians whether MCP or DPP, UDF or Aford, all contribute to the resources of city councils, if the city councils begin to fund a particular political party that is abuse of power, and the most dangerous thing is that they are becoming partisan,” said Dzonzi.

Meanwhile local Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) have demanded that the DPP should pay back the money.

The CSOs have further threatened to take up the issue with Parliamentary Accounts Committee (PAC) if DPP fails to repay the money to the councils.
