Chipani cha DPP chachotsa m'chipanichi ena mwa akuluakulu ake monga a Kondwani Nankhumwa, a Grezelder Jeffrey, a Mark Botomani, a Nicholas Dausi ndi a Ken Msonda mwa ena.
Democratic Progressive Party’s Central Executive Committee has, with immediate effect, expelled from the party several key officials, including former vice president for the southern region Kondwani Nankhumwa, former secretary general Grizelder Jeffrey and former director of women Cecilia Chazama.
Kondwani Nankhumwa, who insists he remains the vice president of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in the South, has declared his interest to contest for the presidency of the party.
President Lazarus Chakwera has snubbed a direct request from Leader of Opposition in Parliament Kondwani Nankhumwa to respond to two motions he submitted in parliament last week.
Leader of Opposition in Parliament Kondwani Nankhumwa has asked President Lazarus Chakwera and his government to resist the temptation of taking Malawi to one party totalitarian practices where journalists were arbitrarily arrested and detained for reporting the truth.
Leader of opposition in parliament, Kondwani Nankhumwa, has urged the Tonse led government to ensure that people have adequate food as hunger continues to wreak havoc in some parts of the country.
Opposition Democratic Progressive Party National Director of Operations, Reverend Mwai Kamuyambeni says he has quit the position and the party with immediate effect.
But Kamuyambeni, a former legislator for Ntcheu West constituency, refused to discuss his next destination as a politician.
“I am thankful to President Peter Mutharika for giving me an opportunity to learn politics in the DPP.
“It is now time for me to move on and use what I have learnt to serve people of Malawi in another capacity.
“I shall be disclosing where I will be next in the next few days,” he said.
In the meantime, DPP spokesperson, Brown Mpinganjira says he does not immediately have a comment on the development as he was yet to see the official communication.
Since the loss Mutharika suffered at the June fresh presidential election, senior members of the party have been jumping ship to the opposition UTM, MCP and Aford.
This is coming at a time a leadership fight is emerging in the party with calls for an elective convention.
DPP vice president for the South Kondwani Nankhumwa and the party vice president for the centre, Uladi Mussa, are said to be the interested prospective party presidency contenders.
