BLANTYRE (MaraPost)–Malawi’s governing People’s Party (PP) Deputy Spokesperson, Ken Msonda says he will not stop talking or visiting the families of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Lazarus Chakwera, former President Bakili Muluzi and former Vice President Cassim Chilumpha, among others, because “we differ in our political affiliation and aspirations”.
Msonda said those spending sleepless nights speculating about his next political move following the resignation of Sidik Mia from the party should know that (verbatim: “I have been close to H.E. Dr. Joyce Banda, our Cool first Gentleman and the family since I was born. I celebrated my 52nd birthday on Jan 2.”
“I have known former President Dr. Bakili Muluzi and family since 1979 when I was working for Chloride Batteries as a Salesman.”
“I have known former Vice President Kaka Cassim Chilumpha S.C, since the UDF times. I am his surity together with Kamlepo Kalua for his fabricated treason case.”
“I have known Dr. Lazarus Chakwera and family since I gave my life to Christ as my Lord and Saviour in 1982.”
“I have known the Mia family since 1992/93 when I was working as Sales Representative for Pharmanova Ltd, thereafter, joined Blantyre Knettin Co. Ltd, a division of DWS & Sons.”
” I was Hon. Sidik Mia’s Campaign Director during PP Convention, where he won the party’s Vice Presidency for South with majority votes.”
“Mrs Abida Mia visited me when I was in hospital almost on the point of death. She was there during my two daughter’s wedding in April and December 2013.
“She was there on Friday 24 January when I had a major car breakdown near Sobo/Carlsberg when there seemed to be no help in sight: she came.”
“I thank the Lord God Almighty that I have and will continue to achieve the goal.”
“No political enemies, as a Born Again Christian.”
“I therefore cannot stop talking or visiting the Muluzi family, the Chilumpha, the Chakweras, the Mia family etc because we differ in our political affiliation and aspirations.”
