Speaking at a press briefing in Lilongwe on Tuesday, DPP spokesperson Nicholas Dausi said his party respects the judiciary “and cannot sink so low to make a statement against another arm of government.”
“We know that Mr. Msonda is a member of DPP and we will definitely make sure that disciplinary measures will be taken against him. We are not going to allow anybody to use the party anyhow.
“We regret the document, but I can assure all Malawians that it is not coming from the DPP,” said Dausi.
Defending himself, Msonda, who was present at the briefing alongside the party’s Secretary General Grezeldar Jeffrey, Organizing Secretary Chimwemwe Chipungu, youth leader Dytos Mussa, and Regional Governor for the Centre Dennis Kambalame, acknowledged to have authored the said document but said through his organization called Think Tank.
He said, through the document, he was expressing his opinion just as other Malawians have on how the judiciary managed the election case.
“That document has nothing to do with the party. It is not a party document. It is my document,” he said.
Taking their turns, both Grezeldar Jeffrey and Chimwemwe Chipungu said all official DPP documents bear the signature of Jeffrey in her capacity as the parties Secretary General.
