LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)- Ever since former First lady Madame Callista Mutharika came out in April this year that the incumbent President Peter Mutharika (her brother in-law) is old to stand again in 2019 general elections favoring the Vice President Saulos Chilima, the country has been in a frenzy of opinions and much fussing and fretting.
Following this, divisions have rocked the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) with some zealots vowing support for Mutharika, while others favoring Chilima.
Since Madam Callista’s hurricane-type statement, Veep Chilima has not come openly to disputes the support but only quietly watch his name flying belts skeleter in the media.
