Former Energy Minister Grain Malunga has dumped the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), accusing the party of failing to fairly resolve primaries which he boycotted on October 15, 2018 this year.
Malunga confirmed of the development in an interview with Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) on Monday.
According to Malunga, he will contest as an independent candidate for Chikwawa North constituency.
He blamed DPP of power play and corruption in selecting people to stand on the party’s ticket.
This comes hot on the hills of reports that DPP has declared Mr Owen Chomanika winner of the disputed primaries polls.
Effort to talk to DPP Spokesperson Nicholas Dausi proved futile.
