The story of former minister of information Hon Brown Mpinganjira,who once served two consecutive terms as a Member of Parliament for Mulanje Central Constituency before his defeat in 2004. Leaves a lot to imagine.
Mpinganjira has been moving up and down from one political party to another in search of good fortunes.
In 2002-2004,he formed his own party called NDA,he failed shamelessly to win presidency and at the same time, he lost his parliamentary seat.
Thereafter,in 2009,he went back to UDF and he was appointed as a running mate to Hon John Tembo of Mcp,the two parties were in an electoral alliance to defeat DPP,for the second time,DPP defeated them.
In 2012-2014,he joined People’s Party and he was later appointed in the cabinet,and during the 2014 Tripartie Elections,he failed to win his parliamentary seat back and then governing PP was defeated by DPP.
In 2018-2020,he joined then governing Democratic Progressive Party and he was appointed as the chairman for Roads Authority and came elections,DPP was defeated by Mcp, a party that is under the Tonse Alliance.
All in All,through out his political adventures, it is detailed from failure to failure.Anything associated with him fails and falls from grace. Is it a curse?
The Democratic Progressive Party youths have risen up to reject his recent appointment as interim spokesman for the office of the former president and DPP’s president office. The youths have organized demonstrations against this unusual appointment on 28th,August, 2020.They say this appointment is sorely based on greediness and selfish reasons not for the good of the party.
“We were expecting to see or hear that seating mps were appointed for such position,for instance the party has capable, vibrant youths like Hon Owen Chamanika or Hon Victor Musowa. Why BJ,magogo like him.” John lamented.
John further added ;”We are targeting 1000-3000 youths from Blantyre City townships. Transport and food will cater participants only. We are expecting to have a good number of college and secondary students from schools within BT city.”
