Former senior official and co-founder of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Ken Zikhale Ngoâ€™ma has said the Peopleâ€™s Party (PP) stands to benefit from his campaign strategies.
Zikhale Ngâ€™oma, who joined PP just 10 days before the landmark PP convention in Blantyre elected him as first deputy campaign director said in an exclusive interview with Nation on Sunday on Wednesday that he had devised most of the campaign strategies employed by the DPP.
“I came up with the idea of cyclists at campaign rallies. I was also instrumental in Dr Bingu wa Mutharikaâ€™s victory in 2009. I devised plans for late Bingu wa Mutharika but unfortunately he died just days before we could launch them,” he said.
Zikhale Ngâ€™oma also claimed he devdise the idea of overwhelming people at rallies to create an impression that the party was popular.
“You will agree with that the long fleet of cars at rallies overwhelmed people and excited them,” he said.
Zikhale Ngâ€™oma said his election into PP national executive unopposed has given him the confidence that people have trust in him although he was new in the party.
Zikhale Ngâ€™oma is among the few new PP members who turned the tables and were elected at the PP convention.
