The politician has since showed interest to contest in DPP primaries in the constituency.

On the issue of his behavior of changing parties, Bagus said he is only exercising his constitutional right.

Bagus joined DPP in 2016 after dumping People’s Party where he was National Organising Secretary.

Last year, he defected to the MCP and government reacted by firing him as board chairperson of Air Cargo Malawi.
