LILONGWE – Eleven Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislators are said to have met Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Lazarus Chakwera on Tuesday evening.
The party’s Deputy Publicity Secretary Ezekiel Ching’oma confirmed the development and said: “It is very very true” that the parliamentarians met Chakwera.
He hinted that five of the MP’s are from Eastern region, four from South, and one each from Central and Northern region.
Asked on what the agenda for the meeting was, the Deputy Publicist only said they discussed issues of national interest.
However sources within the party indicated that the DPP legislators met the MCP Leader at his Area 6 residence, adding that they pledged their allegiance to Chakwera and the party in general especially in Parliament.
When called for comment, DPP Spokesperson Nicholas Dausi demanded for the names of the legislators who are reported to have met Chakwera, and maintained that he would not comment on hearsay.
