A defiant Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) secretary general Greiselder Jeffrey yesterday challenged her detractors that she was not going to resign as the party’s boss amid reports that she resigned last week.
The outspoken Jeffrey, who has lately been in the news for her outbursts on the Malawi Law Society (MLS) and other accountability advocates pressing for the party to refund money some parastatals contributed during the party’s fundraising event in Lilongwe, told a rally at Nkhotakota Boma that she was not going to abdicate her position.
Speaking at the inauguration of a K282 million new Nkhotakota Boma bus depot, Jeffrey fired warning shots to those she said were trying to pressurise her into bowing out of her position as the party’s CEO.
“I am not resigning. Tell those that are spreading rumours that I have called it quits to think again,” Jeffrey said.
Earlier, Local Government Minister Kondwani Nankhumwa hailed the Germany government, which funded the project.
According to Nankhumwa, Local Development Fund (LDF) was boosting councils to sustain themselves financially.
German ambassador, Jurgen Borsch, hailed the partnership between Malawi and Germany, which he said was bearing fruits through development projects.
