Power struggle inside Alliance for Democracy (Aford) is far from over as the two warring sides of Enock Chihana and Frank Mwenifumbo are failing to agree on convention dates as directed by the recent High Court ruling.
While the Mwenifumbo camp wants the indaba to be held from December 14 to 15, the Chihana side feels their rivals are overstepping their mandate.
Spokesperson for Mwenefumbo, Dan Msowoya confirmed of the disagreement in an interview with the press.
“These days are ideal to give us ample time to prepare for the elections. In addition, this is the period when schools will be closed therefore it would be cheaper to accomodate delegates in public schools than book for them in rest houses” said Msowoya.
But the Chihana side publicist Khumbo Mwaungulu, said proposing convention dates is a prerogative of the party’s president Enock Chihana.
The High Court in Lilongwe nullified the May 1 convention results which saw both Mwenifumbo and Chihana emerging as victors after they organised parallel elections.
