The newly elected Independent Member of Parliament for Thyolo Central Constituency, Gabu Bob Khamisa has disclosed that he has now joined the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
Khamisa said this in an interview with one of the local daily papers (Nation Newspaper) on Monday.
“I’ve always been a strong supporter of DPP and its policies. I was only barred from representing the party [in parliamentary elections] because I delayed in expressing my interest.
“In fact, I campaigned for the presidency of Arthur Peter Mutharika during the whole campaign period and I’m not ashamed to rejoin my party,” he said.
His decision to join the mighty DPP comes barely days after all independent MPs who won in Phalombe also joined the party.
