Vice President Quarrelling With The President, Finally Quits Ruling Party

His dramatic decision to quit the DPP has exposed a widening rift in the ruling party, which has come under heavy criticism for alleged corruption. Malawi’s vice president Saulos Chilima publicly attacked the corruption of the president’s government on
Tuesday and announced his resignation from the ruling party, leaving the door open for a presidential run.

Chilima was handpicked by President Peter Mutharika to run alongside him in the 2014 elections on the Democratic People’s Party ticket.
Despite all the sacrifices that our forefathers made, our nation remains one of the poorest. Nepotism, cronyism and corruption are rampant and only those connected continue to benefit,” he said at a media conference in Lilongwe.
“We must give this country a new lease of life. We must clean this country. We must drain the swamp.”

Chilima’s shock move comes as calls have mounted from within the DPP for him to challenge 79-year-old Mutharika, who has ruled the country for four years.
While Chilima holds no leadership position in the ruling party, several top leaders calling themselves the “Chilima Movement” have called on the 45-year-old VP to oppose Mutharika during the party’s next conference.
Presidential elections are scheduled for 2019.
Chilima said he would “follow the procedure and leave the DPP” and also declined to rule out a run in 2019’s polls.

@Conquer: It's a big slap to the incumbent president of Malawi. His own Protégée betraying him

He gave his reasons, and if they're true, I think he did the right thing. You can't be a part of a bad govt. Posterity will judge you.

Permit me to digress a little, Mr. Endy. Can you confirm the veracity of the news that, Buhari has reversed Obasanjo's May 29 Democracy Day to June 12? Please verify. Thanks!

@John: Thanks. No problem for digressing. As at the time of this news hour, I have not confirmed but I will check. @Conquer: That is revolution. Things must change from the ways deemed not right
