LILONGWE (Muchanakhwaye Khwepeya, Malawi NewsNow ) – There is panic amongst some high ranking officials in the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) because of a love relationship between one of its senior members and cabinet minister Francis Kasaila who is dating a vocal opposition MCP member Juliana Lunguzi.
Others fear that through the relationship, Kasaila may pass on some sensitive information to Lunguzi and in the end the ruling party would be exposed.
We have established that indeed Kasaila who is DPP Publicity Secretary and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation is in ‘serious’ relationship with Lunguzi and he has been spending some quality time at Lunguzi’s Area 11 home in Lilongwe.
Kasaila is married while Lunguzi is a spinster.
“We are approaching this issue with caution because apart from being publicity secretary and cabinet minister, Kasaila is one of the most loved boys of the President and we have to be very careful in handling this issue,” said one party official tasked to ‘solve’ the problem.
“In a relationship, there are some things that can be said at that nick time and we are afraid that being a man, the minister can be weak and let through some of our strategies and this may hurt us in the end,” added the official.
Malawi Newsnow established that the two lovebirds, despite meeting during parliamentary sittings, they also meet under the Catholic MPS group where both are members.
