Suspended People’s Party acting President Uladi Mussa has threatened to take legal action against the party.

Mussa was speaking after the PP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) suspended him barely hours last week Thursday after he declared his ambition to contest for the position of the party President.

According to Mussa the tenure of the party’s founder, Joyce Banda has ended, meaning that the seat is vacant.

He also claims that the National Executive Committee has no power to suspend him and will challenge the decision in a court of law.

In an earlier interview with Capital FM, the PP’s Spokesperson Noah Chimpeni confirmed the suspension of Mussa.

Chimpeni said that Mussa had been suspended for uttering hatred remarks against party’s founder who is also Malawi’s former President.

To critics, Mussa’s suspension is a sign that political parties are failing to embrace intra-party democracy, this they are attributing to the of founder’s syndrome.

Happy Kayuni an Associate Professor of Political and Administrative Studies at the Chancellor College said the move is unacceptable and unwelcomed.

“However it is not surprising that the incumbent made such a move when challenged, this is a sign that political parties in the country have not yet reached maturity and it also shows that the party is owned by a particular individual and not the memebers,” Kayuni added.

Banda, who left the country after losing the 2014 Presidential Elections, appointed Mussa as acting President of the Party.
