The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has said lack of publicity on Professor Peter Mwanza’s achievents in Mzuzu City has made the constituents to be very unkind to him otherwise he had been a development conscious parliamentarian.
DPP’s Regional Governor for the North Ken Sanga said this in an interview in Mzuzu dispelling stories going round in the constituency that there is nothing the former Agriculture Minister has done to develop the city.
The news started after the governor hailed Professor Mwanza for rescinding from retiring from politics to contest as councilLor for Masasa ward in the May 20, 2014 tripartite elections.
If he wins, he will be advising the council on the developments Mzuzu city need.
Some people feel professor Mwanza has become a spent force to sink so low to contest as councilor instead of habouring higher ambitions like being MP or president.
But Sanga said he has evidence that Mwanza has achieved a lot in bringing Mzuzu to the current position.
“Professor Mwanza negotiated for the beautiful Shoprite we cerebrate in Mzuzu.”
He said the place where the Mzuzu Shoprite is belonged to Malawi Housing Corporation but Mwanza put some negotiating skills to build the best facility in town.
He added that it was Mwanza’s personal effort to travel to Cape Town South Africa to make negotiations with the Shoprite owners to build the facility in Mzuzu.
Sanga said Mwanza has built Zolozolo Community Day Secondary School in Mzuzu including primary schools with DFID funding. He erected Mzuzu street lights but people are ignorant of this because he has not done much to publicize his projects.
“I personally think those that work with him have not raised his flag, but has done a lot,” said Sanga.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
