Mzomera Ngwira says not shaken by arrest


Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Regional Governor for the North Christopher Mzomera Ngwira has said his recent arrest will not silence him on the exercise of rebuilding the party in the region.

Ngwira said DPP supporters should not be discouraged from working for the party, arguing he remains strong and ready to continue serving on his position without fear.

He was speaking to journalists after the police released him after meeting the bail conditions on Friday.


The court granted him and five other suspects bail, but he failed to meet some conditions because offices where he was supposed to pay bail bond of K200,000 were closed, hence he spent the night in custody.

“I cannot talk about the case, but what I can only say is that I remain DPP and I know people heard about my arrest. Others are disappointed but I want to urge them not to be shaken. Let us work hard to strengthen our party and let us prepare for the next elections to win,” Ngwira said.

DPP vice-president for the North Goodall Gondwe said the party will continue with its restructuring exercises in all the districts in the region, and that Ngwira’s case cannot be a setback.


Ngwira, together with DPP Deputy Director of Operations Joe Nyirongo and three others are answering six charges of acts intended to cause grievous harm, malicious damage, proposing violence and assault, among others.

The case is heard by Senior Resident Magistrate Peter Kandulu, and it will continue on August 21.
