Opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has appointed Christopher Mtambo and Constance Mwanyongo to replace former directors of youth Kelvin Chirambo and his women counterpart Joyce Chikukula, respectively.
Chirambo and Chikukula were unceremoniously fired over the weekend for alleged abuse of party finances and causing commotion at the party’s meeting in Mzuzu on Saturday.
On the sidelines of the meeting, DPP youths in the Northern Region bayed for the blood of the duo. The highly incensed youths also demanded immediate firing of the duo, which the party has duly obeyed.
In a statement DPP spokesperson Shadric Namalomba shared on Monday, the party says it has appointed Mtambo and Mwanyongo as replacements for Chirambo and Chikukula.
Infighting has been the order of the day in the DPP since the party lost the 2020 fresh presidential election to the nine-team Tonse Alliance under President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera.
