Misunderstandings have emerged in former ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) over the appointment of a Regional Governor.
The party’s Governing Council is reported to have submitted to the party president, Peter Mutharika the names of:
– Akim Mwanza – Regional Organizing Secretary
– Kavuli Mhango – Deputy Regional Director responsible for Rumphi district.
– Kelvin Chirambo, Regional Director of Youth.
And Mwakayira another Deputy Regional Director responsible for Karonga District.
Party followers in the region says they want proper a election of a Regional Governor be held to avoid dividing the party.
The development comes following the imprisonment of the partys Regional Governor, Mzomera Ngwira for misappropriating K250 000 meant for development works when he was parliamentarian in 2010.
