Cracks have emerged in the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) as two top officials are fighting for leader of opposition in the National Assembly.
According to information at hand, former Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development Dr. George Chaponda wants Peter Mutharika to remove Kondwani Nankhumwa as leader of opposition.
But the move has attracted strong resistance from DPP MPs with some threatening to dump the party.
The MPs feel that if Chaponda is given the post of leader of opposition the party will weaken further thereby driving off hopes of it bouncing back in 2025.
The MPs claim that Chaponda has no leadership skills as compared to the youthful Nankhumwa.
DPP was relegated to the opposition after losing the fresh Presidential polls to Tonse Alliance torchbearer Dr. Lazarus Chakwera.
Chakwera amassed 2.6 million votes representing 58.4 percent against 1.7 million votes of Mutharika, representing 39 percent.
