BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) senior officials have given the party’s vice-president for the south, Kondwani Nankhumwa, seven days to apologize, failing which the leaders will be forced to bar him from conducting meetings or doing anything in the name of the party.
The officials are accusing Nankhumwa of being responsible for the fracas that happened last week in Lilongwe.
Speaking during a press briefing in Mangochi, Eastern Regional Governor, Sheikh Imran Mtenje said the party feels that all the evil acts are being perpetrated by Nankhumwa.
The officials have since condemned the violent acts and other evil acts that are continuously fuelling fighting within the party.
In attendance were the directors of women, directors of youth and regional governors. Charles Mchacha, who is the Regional Governor for the South, was also in attendance.
The demands follow a fracas that ensued at a planned DPP presser where some people in DPP regalia violently chased and assaulted the party’s leaders who were addressing journalists in Lilongwe.
Members present at the presser included spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira, Francis Mphepo, Chimwemwe Chipungu and Charles Mhango.
It is alleged that the suspected thugs were sent by Nankhumwa as he is eyeing for the party’s presidency.
The thugs were heard in the background accusing Mpinganjira and his team of causing divisions in the party.
