Vice President Saulos Chilima has announced that he will soon be leaving the Democratic Progressive Party after announcing that he will not compete at the party’s convention.
Chilima has condemned nepotism, cronyism and corruption in the Peter Mutharika administration which he says must be dealt with.
In a statement which he delivered at his office at Capitol Hill this morning, Chilima said he will soon be deciding his next political move ahead of the 2019 elections.
“In terms of the what the future holds, I have said in my statement that in few week’s time I will announce my political future, whether I will contest on the presidency in the elections, I will call you again to announce that.”
“The relationship btwn country’s President & VP is usually not spoiled by the president but by those who surround him. I have a good working relationship with the president. I still have about 9months to go before the contract that Malawians gave us ends.”
Meanwhile MP Bon Kalindo one of the Chilima Movement member says he is happy with the decision & the movement is very much alive. He says at the moment the playing field in DPP is not level.
