Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leader Peter Mutharika has censured the party’s Secretary General Grezelder Jeffrey and vice-president for the South Kondwani Nankhumwa for holding a rally in Lilongwe without consulting him.
In a statement, Mutharika claims he heard through the media that the party had two rallies when he was only aware of one, which he had been informed about.
He has described Jeffrey and Nankhumwa’s actions as indiscipline and disloyalty.
Mutharika’s spokesperson Shadric Namalomba has confirmed the statement, saying the party ought to be moving in unity if it is to return to rule this country.
But Jeffrey has maintained that as DPP chief executive officer, she does not have to report everything she does in her capacity to the party’s president and the National Government Council.
“Even when a president appoints Cabinet ministers, do they report everything they do to the president? Why did the party give me the position in the first place?” Jeffrey queried.
