    DPP CRISIS DEEPENS

    Democratic Progressive Party DPP leader Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika says he will not condone any act of indiscipline, disorder or activity perpetuating disunity in the party.

    This follows two DPP rallies held on successive days over the past weekend at Mgona Ground in Lilongwe organised by DPP committee in Central Region. The first of the rallies, held on Saturday, was presided over by Zeria Chakale while another one was organized by Grezelder Jeffrey and presided over by the party’s Vice President (South) Kondwani Nankhumwa.

    In a statement, Mutharika said Zeria Chakale consulted the party and was given an approval from the central region committee for the Saturday rally while on the other hand Grezelder Jeffrey never consulted the party for an approval and proceeded with the 1st May rally at the same venue.

    “Had Ms Grezelder Jeffrey consulted, she would have been directed that this rally be conducted elsewhere and or at some other time.” reads the statement.

    According to Mutharika, the conduct by Grezelder Jeffrey was out of order and an act of indiscipline.

    “DPP is a party of democrats, order, discipline and respect of its constitution. What Ms Grezelder Jeffrey and Kondwani Nankhumwa did was out of order and an act of indiscipline and disloyalty.

    The DPP specifically call upon Ms Grezelder Jeffrey, Kondwani Nankhumwa and all bona fide members and supporters to respect the party’s leadership and all structures as enshrined in the party’s constitution.” Reads part of the statement.

    Nankhumwa has for months been fighting Mutharika for his repressive stunts bent on thwarting the former’s ambitions to be DPP torchbearer in 2025.

    The former President has, however, favoured former Reserve Bank of Malawi governor Dalitso Kabambe.
