Uladi Mussa adamant

Written by  Austin Kakande

Uladi Mussa has insisted that he remain acting president of the former ruling People's Party (PP) arguing a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting that fired him on Friday has no legal mandate.


On Friday, PP NEC suspended Mussa following his Thursday's declaration that he was now president of the party following the expiry of its founding president Joyce Banda's mandate on August 28 this year.


Mussa belittled the NEC meeting, describing it as a mare politburo gathering.

Mussa on Friday evening said: "who called that meeting? I should have been the one chairing and leading the agenda. I am the one to arrange the venue and all relevant logistics. I don’t know about that meeting."


On the ground for his suspension, Mussa had this to say: "what’s so illegal about declaring interest to lead the party? Even Joyce Banda herself declared interest when she said if people still want her to lead she is willing to come."


Mussa further argued that rules of natural justice demand that one be heard first on an alleged offense before being punished.
