The ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) secretariat has contradicted its regional committee for the North over the suspended youth cadets for Mzuzu City.
Earlier this year the party suspended its 20 members from the youth wing for walking out of a meeting chaired by the party’s vice president for the north Goodall Gondwe and national campaign director Jappie Mhango.
The suspension has bought divisions in the party as they suspended members call themselves DPP B apart from demanding for fresh elections for the regional committee to oust Regional Governor Kenneth Sanga, Director of Women Joyce Chikukula and Youth Director Kelvin Chirambo.
Speaking in an interview with journalists, Sanga said since the members were suspended in February this year and that the cadets have not come to apologise to the party.
“These boys are so notorious and they have not yet realised their mistakes. The party will still go strong in the regi0on with or without them,” he said.
He said if the secretariat decides to forgive them the regional committee will welcome the idea without any problem.
DPP Secretary General Eckline Kudontoni said the party has no problem with the suspended members to come back into the party.
However Sanga was quick to point out that he had not yet received any communication from the party Secretariat about the return of the suspended members.
One of the members Lifa Phiri who was director of political of political affairs refused to comment on the matter.
