Yunus Mussa, 17 DPP MPs Vow to Support JB

Second Vice President for the Democratic Progressive Party, Yunus Mussa and 17 Members of Parliament from the central region on Saturday announced allegiance to the new President Joyce Banda.

Banda was sworn in on Saturday following the death of President Bingu wa Mutharika. She has her own People’s Party, formed after the ruling party expelled her in 2010.

“I have consulted my constituents and they have told me to work with Her Excellency President Joyce Banda,” Mussa , who is Minister for Housing, told zodiak online.

The announcement was quite shocking for Mussa who has had launching blistering attacks on Banda especially that the two come from the same district.

The MPs from the central region who have also announced their support for Banda, Mr. Ken Kandodo (former Finance Minister), Abel Kayemb (former Leader of Opposition), Geofrey Kamanya, Sostin Gwengwe, and Lecford Thotho.

“We want to help the Vice President to govern this nation and rebuild the country. Malawi is facing a lot of challenges and the new President can only deliver if she works together with MPs. The Peoples Party (Vice President’s party) has no MPs in Parliament and we, as representatives of the people, we decided to work with the Vice President so that our people can benefit from development projects,” said Mr. Ken Kandodo, leader of the delegation.

Mr. Kandodo said the decision has been unanimously agreed upon by all MPs from the Central Region and has not consulted MPs from other regions whether they support the move.

“We don’t want bloodshed in the country and we don’t want to be associated with the group that wants to violate the constitution. As MPs, we swore an oath to protect and safeguard the constitution and the constitution is very clear who is to succeed if the president dies,” echoed Dedza Central MP Sostin Gwengwe.

DPP Regional Governor for the Center Kaladzi Mbewe has also announced his support for President Banda.

Several cabinet ministers including Information Minister Patricia Kaliati on Friday night told the nation that government will not allow the Vice President to take over.

The full list of MPs who went to Mrs. Joyce Banda House to offer support is below:

1. Ken Kandodo –Kasungu Central

2. Sostin Gwengwe - Dedza Central

Apatu dzanja lalemba. You, the lucky ones who are having power over other people; you need to be careful when doing your dealings. 'Ukakwera pansana pa njovu usamati kulibe mame'. Our grandparents knew what they were saying. Now you say that you want to support JB.... One wonders what support are you talking about. It is you who will spoils our new president again. Yes, we are really suffering because of you who spoiled our beloved late Bingu who started very well and we did not expect him to subjugate us with alot of heavy yokes. Sorry if I am making an insult, but this is really true....
