Kasungu, July 11, 2012, Mana: Kasungu Central Member of Parliament Ken Kandodo said recently he is not afraid of Section 65 challenging that he will maintain his seat should Speaker of
Parliament Henry Chimunthu Banda invoke the anti-defection law.
Kandodo who is also Malawi’s Defence Minister is among former ruling Democratic Progressive
Party (DPP) MPs who ditched their party following death of President Bingu wa Mutharika and
announced their allegiance to President Joyce Banda and her now ruling People’s Party (PP).
Speaker Chimunthu Banda is yet to act on a petition by DPP to have seats of all its former MPs
who are now on government side declared vacant for allegedly crossing the floor.
However, Kandodo told a development rally at Lisasadzi in the district that he is confident of retaining his Kasungu Central seat in a by-election in the event that it is declared vacant.
“Even if elections are held today or next week, I’ll still go back to parliament. As an MP I’m still
enjoying support from the constituency and the general public,” he declared.
Quizzed if by declaring allegiance to PP-led government means he has effectively joined
the party Kandodo insisted that he is an independent member of parliament but supporting government.
He was on the other hand non-committal on possibilities of joining the party in future or running on its ticket in 2014 general elections only saying “politics is dynamic, you never know what will
happen tomorrow.” He said the nation will be advised when time comes.
“I am an independent MP but supporting government, that is my official status in parliament
now,” he clarified.
