“DPP won’t use uncivilised demos to show anger at Chakwera’s Tonse Alliance failures”-Msaka

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) says will not use demonstrations, protests as a way of showing anger at President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse Alliance government failures.

DPP Eastern Region Vice President Bright Msaka told the news conference on Monday, December 4, 2023, in the capital Lilongwe that demonstrations and protests just violate others’ rights through property looting.

Msaka added that DPP will not use protests the way Chakwera, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), and the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) did between 2019 and 2020.

Msaka hinted, “The best way to show dissatisfaction with Chakwera’s failed leadership is through civilized approaches including press conferences, issuing statements, Parliament session protests. DPP won’t go for demos that end up destroying others’ properties when we want to govern the same people”.

“Chakwera and MCP used the same uncivilized tactic against DPP between 2019 and 2020 that ended up looting others properties which DPP won’t labour itself into it”.

Msaka was responding to a question as to why DPP has not shown anger on Chakwera’s failures as an opposition block.

He also told a news conference that the party’s National Governing Council (NGC) meeting, which DPP Secretary General (SG) Grelzder Jeffrey announced last week, will not take place.

The news conference comes barely a few days after Jeffrey announced the party’s NGC will convene on December 6, 2023, to prepare for the incoming DPP convention.

“Jeffrey’s briefing was not endorsed by the party saying there would not be any NGC meeting on December 6, 2023. The said NGC won’t happen without blessings from DPP president Peter Mutharika and is not in compliance with the party’s constitution.

“Our party leader Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika will call for a meeting for the central executive committee this week, which will discuss the coming convention and differences rocking the party.

The opposition DPP has been in a leadership crisis after losing the 2020 Presidential elections to Chakwera.
