PRESS STATEMENT

Lilongwe, Malawi

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is outraged by the conduct of some individuals who were dressed in our party garments and attempted to disrupt the recent mayoral elections in Blantyre. The DPP strongly condemns these individuals and completely disowns them.

In view of the recent DPP electoral victories and what our Party President, His Excellency Prof. Peter Mutharika has been saying lately, such characters cannot be genuine DPP members. They must be agents of some confusionists who just want to dent the DPPs democratic credentials.

The President has repeatedly called for strict discipline in the new DPP at all levels. He has also appealed for tolerance as well as for continued peace and calm among all Malawians. All of us who support and follow the President in our renewed Party shall therefore ensure that no detractors, sponsored or otherwise, are allowed to derail his agenda for law and order plus his designs for political advancement in Malawi.

We therefore want to assure the public that the Party is investigating this very unfortunate incident thoroughly and shall take appropriate measures to fully punish the irresponsible culprits, regardless of who they are, once they are found.

We want to thank the Police for having remained firm while exercising restraint in their handling of the situation. This averted unwarranted violence which would have discredited the post-electoral peace and calm which we are all enjoying now. We also want to commend the Blantyre City Members of Parliament, Councilors and other DPP functionaries who took swift action to restore peace and calm, law and order, all of which eventually allowed the City officials to conduct peaceful and credible elections for the Mayor of the City of Blantyre.
