200 DPP Leaders Defect to MCP in Lower Shire, Citing ‘Poor Leadership’ as the Cause

Barely a week after 117 purported committee leaders in the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) defected to Malawi Congress Party (MCP) in Chikwawa, over 200 DPP leaders from Chikwawa west and Nsanje South West Constituencies have also left the party and join MCP.

The leaders announced their defection on Tuesday, citing poor leadership among other reasons.

Former constituency governess for the governing party, Elizabeth Moses, claimed President Peter Mutharika has failed to address various challenges including shortage of essential drugs in public hospitals and food insecurity.

“We have defected to MCP because believe that the party’s leadership will make a difference in developing Nsanje.

“We have worked with the DPP led government and realized that President Mutharika has been making ’empty’ promises,” claimed Moses.

The former Nsanje DPP constituency governess further accused the governing DPP of using and dumping them.

“I worked with the party for so many years but was recently relieved of my duties without any token of appreciation.

“This is unfair, they should have done something as a way of appreciating my services,” lamented Moses.

MCP Campaign Director Moses Kunkuyu has described it as a welcome development.

Kunkuyu alleged the DPP led government protects people who commit crimes including corruption.

DPP Publicity Secretary Nicholas Dausi was not immediately available for a comment whilst its Secretary General, Grezeldar Jeffrey feigned ignorance on the development.

“I do not have that issue in my office, let me talk to our party’s Publicist, we will revert,” she said.
