Former Attorney General and Minister of Justice Henry Phoya is set to announce his defection from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party to Malawi Congress Party, Malawi’s oldest party.
He is scheduled to announce his new move at John Tembo’s area 10 residence in Lilongwe’s area 10.
Journalists are currently gathered at the house waiting for the press conference. senior MCP officials have already disclosed the agenda of the press conference but cannot say whether Tembo is set to resign to allow Phoya to take over.
Phoya, expelled by DPP as director of legals affairs after he criticized the party last year, is widely believed to have leadership skills that the nation currently needs and his joining may just pump new blood into the country’s first ruling party.
