BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-Malawi President Peter Mutharika’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has given out a whopping MK50 million bounty to some Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM party social media activists to ‘fight each other’ in order to thwart any efforts of the two parties running together in case there is a re run of the presidential elections.
We can reveal that DPP is preparing for a re run and would not want MCP and UTM to join forces.
This is why the newly crowned DPP Chief Strategist Norman Paulos Chisale has given the money to cause confusion in MCP and UTM camps.
“There are two people who have already been given K10 million each, one from MCP and another one from UTM to do this social media war. Others have joined in without knowing its the DPP sponsoring this social media war,” said one inside source.
It is said that top party officials of the two parties have not sanctioned the ‘social media war’ but are aware of the DPP role in the confusion.
“Others have joined this war without knowing that its DPP orchestrating this move,” said the source.
Chisale is said to be using one Rodgers Kadiso Banda to be distributing the money for the social media war between MCP and UTM.
Lately there has been ‘fighting’ between MCP and UTM supporters on social media on who has a strong witnesses in the elections case currently being heard in the Constitutional Court.
