The party has recently been embroiled in a civil war over leadership disagreement with other functions disputing the leadership of Uladi mussa as unconstitutional.
On Sunday, Mussa alongside PP secretary general Ibrahim Matola, vice-president for finance and administration Ralph Jooma, third vice-president Kamlepo Kalua and other senior members organised a regional conference in Mzuzu at Anglican Hall.
But the meeting did not go well as officials from other faction which are said to be led by former regional governor Rev Christopher Mzomera Ngwira and former vice president Khumbo Kachali caused violence and attacked the supporters of Mussa at the venue.
According an eye witness who witnessed the mayhem Janet Mkandawire, Mussa and party MPs had to run for their lives and sought refuge at Alliance for Democracy (Aford) president Enoch Chihana’s house at Kaning’ina in the same city.
She said drama continued when Kalua was never intimidated by the disagreement and went ahead to address the supporters calling them to unite for the sake of the Party.
In his interview with one of the local radio stations, Mussa did not mince words but went ahead to Blame Kachali and Ngwira for organising and sponsoring the mayhem.
“It is not a secret that these two organised thugs to cause fracas,” said Mussa.
He said Kachali and Ngwira are not happy with his appointment as acting head of the orange camp.
“Right honourable Khumbo Kachali through the Reverend Mzomera Ngwira organised thugs, not members of the party, giving out T-shirts. We know their names. These are the ones obstructing everybody chasing people right there not to attend our meeting at the hall,” claimed Mussa.
He added that he is optimistic that the party will solve the disagreements very well.
“Politics is my hobby and there is no way I can quit because of these little disagreements, we will overcome them.” added Mussa.
However Kachali denied the allegations saying he has no plans of leading the party but rather revamping it back to its lost glory.
“I have no plans whatsoever to lead the party as Hon Mussa is alleging, I only wish the party well to grow.”
Problems have been worsening in the party since the self imposed exile of its founder Joyce Banda who has been abroad since losing in the 2014 general elections.
