Gondwe retires from active politics
Veteran politician Goodall Gondwe says he is planning to retire from politics to pave way for the youths.
Gondwe made the remarks in Mzuzu during a presser the Democratic Progressive Party held to highlight Vuwa Kaunda's victory in the just-ended by-election in NkhataBay Central.
"I will officially announce my retirement in politics during the party’s convention that will take place in 2023," said Gondwe.
The DPP fielded Symon Vuwa Kaunda in the by-election and he won the Parliamentary seat beating his main rival Ralph Mhone with 216 votes.
During the presser, Gondwe said, "The DPP's winning of a parliamentary seat in Nkhata- Bay Central Constituency is a clear indication that people in the country still have trust and confidence in the party."
His sentiments were echoed by the party's regional governor for the North, Ackim Mwanza who said, "the party is still vibrant."
