Salima Central member of Parliament (MP) Felix Jumbe who was expelled from Malawi Congress Party(MCP) has now officially joined the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
Jumbe was welcomed into the DPP at a function in Salima soon after President Peter Mutharika had unveiled a foundation stone for the China Africa Textile Company.
The parliamentarian said he was happy to work with the governing party after long time of fighting his own political party which later expelled him.
Jumbe commended Government for the factory saying it will help to create jobs.
“Am told the factory will create 1,500 jobs this is just good and will increase cotton value,” Said Jumbe.
