Leader of the concerned Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials, I would not demand the removal of the partyâ€™s acting president Peter Mutharika on the basis that he does not have a good track record for that office.
If I were bwana Nampinga, I would push for a convention other than the removal of the acting president because while my groupingâ€™s claims that Mutharika does not have a good track record may be true, I would realise that the man is only â€˜actingâ€™ pending an election.
I would realise, if I were Nampinga, that it is only the convention where the party can elect a leader of its choice and not necessarily removing the acting president at this point.
How I wish I were Nampinga and his group, because I would also acknowledge that Mutharika has the right to contest for the partyâ€™s hot seat, just like any of the partyâ€™s members.
Yes, while some of the concerns raised might be genuine, I would appreciate, if I were Nampinga that the best way forward would be to push for a convention.
That is if I were Nampinga. Unfortunately, I am not him!
