The DPP Spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira and the party’s Legal Director Charles Mhango have accused four expelled members of the party for the violence and abrupt end of an initial press conference they planned earlier in Lilongwe.
The four expelled but obtained an injunction to still remain party members are it’s Vice President for the South Kondwani Nankhumwa, Treasurer General Jappie Mhango, Secretary General Grezelder Jeffrey and Mulanje West legislator Yusuf Nthenda.
Over 15 heavily built roughnecks in blue regalia today disrupted a press conference which three Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials wanted to address in Lilongwe.
Three minutes into the press conference at a hotel in Lilongwe, the roughnecks stormed the room, forcing holders of the press conference; DPP spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira, party administrative secretary Francis Mphepo and organizing secretary Chimwemwe Chipungu to flee the room.
The roughnecks, who came in a minibus and left in a minibus, did not harm journalists covering the press conference.
One of them assured the journalists of their safety, saying their target were the politicians whom they labelled as confusionists.
Speaking at the follow up press briefing , Mpinganjira said he was saddened with the behaviour of some of the members of the party . He said , the aim of the press briefing wasn’t to accuse Nankhumwa for pocketing Covid19 allowances as suggested by the attackers.
Speaking at a press briefing held at another venue, Mpinganjira said the party will map the way forward on the violence.
