Ken Lipenga, Phoya return to DPP

125

Former cabinet ministers Henry Phoya and Ken Lipenga have rejoined the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

The two, together with other new members Brown Mpinganjira and Reverend Daniel Gunya, were welcomed by President Peter Mutharika today at a rally held at Lunzu in Blantyre.

The four new DPP members being welcomed

Lipenga along with Phoya ditched the DPP in 2012 after the death of Bingu wa Mutharika to join the then incoming President Joyce Banda’s Peoples Party (PP).

The two were rendered with various ministerial posts during Banda’s presidency but their dormancy arose after Banda lost in the 2014 polls to Peter Mutharika.

Lipenga was Banda’s Finance Minister although he got fired at the news of looting of public funds – a scandal Malawians better know as Cashgate.

The DPP says it has rolled out what it is terming as an ‘open door policy’ which involves catching new members into the party.

Its front line competitor the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is also not taking its chances in the game of numbers as the race to 2019 polls continues.

The DPP’s potential merge with the PP still remains in the news and it has caused a stir within the former ruling party as recently fired acting PP leader Uladi Mussa is also reported to have joined the DPP.

Analysts keep advising parties to tread carefully in this time when defections are rife.

They argue that while the game of numbers is vital in politics it remains imperative to have people that will assist the party forward and not draw it backwards.

  6. Political headless chickens with no direction. Where were they all this time? 2019 is just 12months away they join now so that they get ministerial positions next year. Shame shame shame shame and look at them they look shameful and my advice is JUST RETIRE AND ENJOY YOUR PRIVATE LIFE. MALAWI DOES NOT NEED RECYCLED CLOWNS OF POLITICIANS LIKE YOU.

  10. Apa mpira wayamba kuponyedwa kutali.The late Bingu’s winning team is back. Next it’s Uladi, Chimunthu,Chanjo, basi lakeshore DPP yathana nayo.

  11. So life is cold outside politics and politics is the way to earn easy money in Malawi. In this way can the youth be inspired to engage in other activities outside politics? Look Phoya is a Lawyer with Sc title to his name….is his private practice failing and thinks he then can do better in politics? Lipenga is an intelligent.academician who should have been devoting his energy in the academic circles. Bj….we all know he was a very powerful person and in the process got his share of public wealth. We were told he was going into evangilisation…and we hear Rev Gunya also started a church in Mozambique and that too maybe hasnt worked. Do I.get the impression that nothing works outside politics?

  12. The same recycled politicians still hoping to continue ruling us, no wonder things are getting worse each passing day because we the Malawian youth do not want to take part in these issues leaving the ball to the scraps, what we know is to be a youth cadet painted in party colours half naked a sign of incompetence that we can’t contribute anything to our nation, what a shame
