Former ruling People’s Party (PP) deputy secretary general George Zulu has resigned from his position and withdrawn his membership from the party.
Zulu disclosed this in an interview with one of the privately owned radio [Zodiak Broadcasting Station], accusing the party of practicing nepotism.
In his speech, Zulu said PP is fond of sidelining people from the Central region when it comes to selecting people in various positions.
Reacting to the news, PP Publicity Secretary Ken Msonda the Party have not received any communication from Zulu over his resignation.
“We have not received any written communication from Zulu regarding his resignation so if that is true we welcome his move”, said Msonda.
Msonda added that Zulu has the right to leave the Party and join any political party.
When asked if really the Party is practicing nepotism as alleged by Zulu, Msonda vehemently blasted the claims, saying PP is the only Party that is democratic in the country.
Meanwhile unconfirmed reports indicate that Zulu is heading to Malawi Congress Party (MCP).
