The Opposition Malawi Congress Party – MCP has accused Chikwawa central Democratic Progressive Party aspirant Salim Bagus of stealing party materials worth Eight Hundred thousand kwacha.
First Director of women in the party Florence Kanyoni made the accusation over the weekend during a rally held at Nchalo in Chikwawa district.
According to Kanyoni, the party’s first vice president Muhammad Sidik Mia gave Bagus party cloth and T-Shirts to distribute to party followers in southern region before defecting to the ruling DPP.
Kanyoni says the party is giving Bagus Seven days to return the party materials or else the concerned parties will hold a vigil at his residence in Nchalo.
The development comes barely few days after Salim Bagus who was Deputy Publicity Secretary, dumped the Malawi Congress party and re-joined the Democratic Progressive party.
Commenting on the matter, MCP National Campaign Director Moses Kunkuyu refuted claims of theft of any campaign materials at the party’s office and accused Florence Kanyoni of fabricating false information.
When contacted to comment on the accusation Salim Bagus refused to comment much but said he will consult his lawyers.
