DPP parliamentarian for Mzuzu city who is hiding for his life has described those behind his attack as evil DPP politicians who just want to dent the image of the President.
Speaking from his hiding place, Leonard Njikho said that he does not understand why some DPP top officials want him dead.
“I joined DPP to develop Malawi not to be hiding from assassins. How can a minister instruct people to kill me? i do not just understand.
“I know that the President is not in support of this but some selfish ministers who think lives of other people are useless,” he said.
Njikho further said that the people including Jappie Mhango just want to destroy the image of the President.
“They think they are above the law and that they can take my life. In the meantime i cannot disclose where i am because they will kill me. If it were not for the police i could have been a dead man by now,” he added.
DPP is angry with Njikho because they believe he connived with councillors from the opposition parties to make sure that the DPP lost the Mzuzu mayorship.
