Brown Mpinganjira dumps PP

Just a day after Capital FM carried a report on how politicians continue to switch their allegiance, one of the heavyweights in People’s Party (PP) Brown Mpinganjira has dumped the party.

His decision comely barely a week after Sosten Ngwengwe  who was the party’s running mate in the 2014 Tripartite elections expressed his interest to leave the party.

Gwengwe and Interim Secretary General Ibrahim Matola have all dumped the former ruling party and are expected to join opposition the Malawi Congress  Party (MCP) and the United Democratic Front (UDF).

Malawians would remember Mpinganjira for being at the centre of the spinning wheel during the Joyce Banda Administration, when the government was under pressure from the public to explain how it had handled proceeds from the Presidential Jet sale and the Arm’s deal.

At that time, he was serving as Information Minister.

In an interview with Capital FM, Mpinganjira, who was the party’s Vice President for the Southern Province, could not spell out exactly why he has resigned from PP and what his next move will be.

“I would like to embark on a personal project; I therefore, have decided to take my time off active politics.”

Mpinganjira denied rumours that he plans to join opposition, Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

Born 1950 Mpinganjira served as the Minister of Foreign Affairs under President Bakili Muluzi from 1999 until 2000.

He then broke with Muluzi over the latter's attempt to have the constitution changed so that he could run for a third term of office.

Mpinganjira formed his own party, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

In the 2004 presidential election, he placed fourth, receiving only 8.7% of the vote.

The party managed to contribute a number of Members of Parliament to the National Assembly among them Billy Kaunda and Mpinganjira himself.

Mpinganjira later dissolved the NDA and rejoined the United Democratic Front, a party he helped to found.

In the May 2009 presidential election, Mpinganjira is running alongside Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential candidate John Tembo as Tembo's vice-presidential candidate.

The MCP and the UDF both supported Tembo in the election.
