Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in Ntcheu officials have rallied supporters to rise with their party in the district.
Speaking at a party officials meeting on Saturday, Eastern Region secretary Kaphodza Ngozo advised all DPP supporters to work together and improve the image of their party. He said they should ignore all rumours circulating against DPP.
“Let me ensure Malawians that DPP still lives. There are no disagreements in the party and no one has been removed from the party. Those who have left DPP are just searching for greener pastures from other political parties and we are not worried about that,” he said.
Speaking in a separate interview, DPP Ntcheu district governor Jason Chimalira said the district’s political structure is still strong which shows that the party is still alive.
“DPP as a party in Ntcheu is still strong. Our structures from the constituency, district to regional levels are still intact to maintain the flow so that come 2025, we may be back in government,” he said.
One of the DPP supporters in the district, Noah Bengo, said all supporters are working with the officials to rise again.
“I advise my fellow supporters to ignore what others are saying against the DPP. Instead, we should know our party and hold on to it. As we remember when late Bingu died, the party was complicated but we managed to rise and won 2014 presidential election,” he said.
Bengo further said the same spirit that supporters had in the past years is what should be done now because all hope is not yet lost.
