After being silent for almost a year now, since the demise of late former president Professor Bingu Wa Mutharika, Democratic Progressive Party member of parliament for Zomba central constituency Yunus Mussa is back to his constituency. He has now embarked on a campaign to revive the party’s glory at the grassroots level.
Speaking when he addressed a crowd that gathered at Chinamwali catholic ground in the area, the former Minister of Works in DPP regime said he longs at strengthening the Party at the grassroot to maintain the seat come 2014.
“Since the death of the former President, a lot has happened like DPP members moving to other political parties, hence the need to strengthening the party in the zones” said Mussa.
The DPP legislator also refuted rumors that he plan not to contest for the seat during the 2014 elections, saying the voters are to decide.
Mussa further asked DPP members to be united and welcome everyone joining it and asked them to vote for the party’s presidential candidate during the 2014 elections.
During the rally, 56 people who claimed to have been UDF and PP followers announced their defection to the DPP.
Mussa dominated headlines in 2008 when he obtained a controversial injunction restraining the speaker of the National assembly from invoking section 65 of the country’s constitution to allow late former President Bingu Wa Mutharika finish his first term of office after he ditched the UDF in 2005.
