Chilima Movement not afraid of convention – Kalindo

9

Member of Chilima Movement Bon Kalindo says the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) faction is not afraid of a convention.

Kalindo is part of the group that wants Chilima to be the party’s torchbearer in the 2019 elections.
With President Peter Mutharika insisting that he will represent the party in next year’s elections, Chilima will have to face Mutharika at the DPP convention.

We are not afraid of a convention.

On Wednesday, DPP Secretary General Grezeldar Jeffrey announced in an official letter that the party will hold its convention in June.

Commenting on the issue, Kalindo said the pro-Chilima DPP members are not afraid of the convention claiming it is what they were waiting for and that’s what they were fighting for.

He continued to say that the Chilima camp is ready to make sure that the vice president is elected DPP president.

Kalindo however claimed that the announcement made by Jeffrey is not official.

He pointed out that Jeffrey is not a member of the DPP National Governing Council (NGC) because she was appointed and not elected hence cannot call for a convention.

“That is something that we cannot believe because its unofficial at the same time. Malawians should now know that no one is holding any position in the DPP because the time that people were supposed to hold positions expired.

“The one to call for convention is number one the president so that members of NGC should meet and secondly the NGC members should call for the convention and not something from Jeffrey who is not even a member of the NGC because she was only appointed,” said Kalindo.

  1. I love my party DDP kwambiri but for our party to win 2019 come election we need young Chilima to deafet MCP otherwise trust me MCP will lead us come 2019. lakula ndi dyela akuluakuluwa akuopa kuti akamupasa chilima iwo palibeso chawo, we all youth in this country we are behind Chilima if dpp want to win put chilima otherwise kaya

  2. Akanakhala bingu bwezi a chilima atachosedwa, that’s why ku Malawi ma vice president sagwira bwino ntchito Kamba kofuna upresident mwachangu

  3. here is why Chilima is losing out.Dpp NEC has endorsed APM,the next move is moving out into regional exuctive councils inform them about the endorsement,listen to them if they agree,those who do not agree will be branded traitors or confusionists and mechanisms will be put in place making sure the decision of the Nec reigns supreme, then next regional executive will move into district executives and district executives into Area Branches, no stone will be left unturned,the criteria of chosing those going to convention is politically hilarious like hell and Chilima will live a sad life after this event.The sooner he disown his movement or the sooner he resign the better.I can forsee what is about to unfold like I said b4 politics isn’t a clean game,pple do cut corners,cheat,fake it but a winner is declared a winner at the end.

  5. history repeating once again,no ways Chilima can come out victorious at such a convention 1.NGC has alreday endorsed APM,those making loud noises have reason why doing so but if we try to understand the meaning of an endorsement, it is much stronger than what one perceives,an endorsement from ngc is even mightier because it does have the power to be authoritative which looks undemocratic from a certain angle but also much needed to give a sense of direction in a party n avoid creating chaos whereby if everyone decides for himself then unity is defeated.Bring it on Dpp

  6. DPP kumeneko ndiye kubwera.ana achepa awa.kalindo kulubwalubwa too much,nkholokolo za DPP, gulukunyinda wamkulu kalindo.Chilima 201 votes,,,,,mutharika 999 votes at convention. That’s my prediction
