If It Is Not DPP In 2025, Then Which Party Is The Best Altenative?

Politics
By Rick DzidaFrankly speaking, a lot of Malawians had high expectations of the Tonse Alliance government. They rudely despised Prof. Peter Mutharika and  Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) from left , right and centre. Even those who wished APM dead have realised their mistakes now.Truth be told, Chakwera’s government has dismally failed. Most Malawians are regretting why they wasted their vote for Chakwera and Tonse Alliance.The  Tonse Alliance administration has failed to fulfill its campaign promises. The much touted MCP Hi 5 is totally a goof. No rule of law. No zero tolerance to corruption. No prospering together. No unity. No fuel. No forex. Instead of making progress, Chakwera’s regime has taken this country hundred steps backwards.Malawians have realised now that they we...

APM Dumps Dalitso Kabambe, Wants Bright Msaka As Dpp President

APM Dumps Dalitso Kabambe, Wants Bright Msaka As Dpp President

Politics
Until just a few weeks ago, it was a foregone conclusion that former President of the Republic and President of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika had fallen for Dr. Dalitso Kabambe as his heir apparent and, therefore, the party's presidential candidate in 2025. But as they say, anything is possible in politics. According to sources very close to APM, as Mutharika is fondly referred to by his admirers, the DPP leader has recently been informing his closest allies about his decision to 'endorse' DPP Vice President for the Eastern Region and Member of Parliament (MP) for Machinga Likwenu, Bright Msaka, as his now preferred successor. Of course such an endorsement is not final. There are no tricks or shortcuts in becoming the DPP Presiden...
Msaka Visits Kunje At Mikuyu Prison

Msaka Visits Kunje At Mikuyu Prison

Local
Today, I paid a courtesy visit and cheered former commissioner of Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC), Ms.Linda Kunje, who is remanded at the Mikuyu Prison in Zomba, awaiting sentencing by the Magistrate's court . Ms. Kunje was convicted by the Court last Friday for obstructing President Lazarus Chakwera's convoy. I found Ms. Kunje in a positive mood and she thanked the prison staff and senior officials for being professional in their work and according me an opportunity to cheer her . Ms.Kunje is due to appear in court for sentencing on Tuesday. This type of case is very uncommon in Malawi. I can only remember the recent case in neighbouring Zambia where the current President of Zambia, President Hichilema, was similarly prosecuted for obstructing former President Lungu's convo...

DPP Presidential Candidate Bright Msaka, The Wise One From The East

Politics
Leadership is all about trust from the people and the trust from the people in politics is measured by numbers. The more you are trusted the more the numbers you have in politics. These numbers on the election date are the voters, or we can refer to them as votes. Today, I had an opportunity to appreciate how the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has been performing in some districts , from where Bright, the wise one from the East comes from , when he was not into active politics and after he joined frontline politics as the Vice President for the Eastern region for the DPP -- the party that we love the most. Let’s take a look at the recent three General Elections with an emphasis on Presidential elections in the following years; 2020, 2019 and 2014 in the following districts; Zomb...
