Chimwendo asks Dausi, Chitsulo to join MCP

By Vincent Gunde

Minister of Local Government who is also Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Director of Youth Richard Chimwendo Banda has asked expelled DPP NGC member Nicholas Dausi not to get worried following his expulsion from the DPP, saying the MCP is well prepared to warmly welcoming him back.

Chimwendo has also extended the invitation to DPP Member of Parliament (MP) for Mwanza West Constituency Joyce Chitsulo telling the two, Dausi and Chitsulo that MCP is not a family party, it is a national party saying it has an office for all its affairs and not using someone’s house as an office.

Flirting with MCP – Dausi and Chitsulo

Speaking during a Development rally addressed by President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera in Mwanza on Friday, Chimwendo said Dausi was expelled from the DPP for no offense claiming that he asked for the construction of a stadium and other projects in Mwanza but the DPP failed despite of him being a cabinet minister.

Chimwendo said Dausi was not alone to ask for a sports stadium, Mark Katsonga Phiri asked for the same but their Party did nothing only promising lies for years until President Chakwera came and is fulfilling the development projects failed by the previous DPP in government.

“Chakwera is walking in the footsteps of Ngwazi Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda spreading development projects across the country even in areas which did not vote for him,” he said.

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) District Youth Governor for Lilongwe Urban speaking on a strict condition of anonymity, has thanked Chimwendo Banda for publicly opening doors to those who have been expelled and suspended from the DPP to join the MCP.

The Governor said it is the wish of the party to see to it that all who have been expelled and suspended from the party joins the MCP claiming that they have been working with the MCP inside and outside Parliament to make sure that the DPP goes to the 2025 elections without a presidential candidate.

He said sanity has now come to stay in the mighty DPP following the expulsion and suspension of some of the party’s members advising all that if they have political muscles, they should join their MCP other than continue fighting with the DPP as this will take them nowhere.

The Governor has assured all the expelled and suspended members that the DPP remains a strong party and is poised to win the 2025 elections with or without castigations and insults from expelled members claiming that some of the members have already started advising Malawians not to vote for the DPP anymore.

“Just join the MCP or form your political party, don’t dream that your departure will divide DPP members, genuine DPP members are with the party and cannot follow you to the MCP,” he said.

The Governor has since appealed to all DPP patriotic members not to be shaken by failed politicians who are doing everything possible that infighting continues in the DPP assuring all that DPP under Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika will defeat President Chakwera even if elections are held today or tomorrow.
