DPP legal advisor Charles Mhango said this in Rumphi Central constituency where he held a political rally over the weekend along with other senior party officials and cabinet ministers.

“They lined up a number of development projects which they want in the area. They gave us a long list of development wishes for the area and we told them the government is ready to give them the development on condition that they support the DPP,” said Mhango in an interview monitored on state controlled Malawi Broadcasting Corporation.

Senior DPP officials and cabinet ministers stormed the northern region over the weekend holding rallies ahead of President Peter Mutharika’s trip to the region soon.

Mhango assured the people of Rumphi that the government would give them the development in exchange for their support to the DPP.

The constituency overwhelmingly voted for Alliance for Democracy (Aford) president Enock Chihana during the 2014 parliamentary elections and voted for Peoples Party’s Joyce Banda in the presidential race.

People in the district accuse the DPP led government of backsliding on its promise to construct the all important Livingstonia Njakwa Road which is now in sorry state.

On Sunday, Mhango donated a K250000 cheque to a church in the constituency, an indication that Chihana has a political competitor in the 2019 parliamentary race.

Verily , verily I say unto you, this Mhango guy is a fool! He has just opened his mouth and all Malawians can tell, he belongs to fools paradize. Mr Mhango, please wake up! We are in the 21st century where belonging to a party of one’s choice is a birthright. Common sense dictates that all citizens pay tax and all of us deserve development from our taxes even if we hold divergent political value. Mr Mhango and the whole DPP politburo should leaen to separate development and national issues from politics. People in the North are anti DPP ,… Read more »

The nation of Malawi is now officially upside down.Never in the history of Africa,people have had deranged and incompetent leadership like our abused Malawi.It is a plain fact that Peter Muthalika and his blind supporters have completely failed to deliver the goods,no wonder that he was fired from Washington State University,USA after students protested against his nagetive professorial handicap,while at the same time,his brother Bingu was fired from his job with COMESA when he was apprehended for stealing public finances in the tune of USA$150.000.COMESA is based in Harare,Zimbabwe.So Malawians must learn a vivid lesson from the two feral impostors… Read more »

This guy called Charles Mhango is sick in his mind. A person with his right mind can not utter such rubbish. Please don’t show your stupidity. Mhango guard your stupid mouth and your unwise head.

Northerners are the most tolerant people in Malawi but they should not be taken for a ride. For example in Rumphi Central constituency during an election DDP chooses Mhango to stand and AFORD puts a dog them I would be even happier to vote for the dog than Mhango(DPP). This shows the depth of hatred we have for this stupid government. There is no way you can ask support from the very same people you are oppressing through quota system and denied development. But remember things will not be like this for ever and he who laughs last laughs the… Read more »

A wise leader would say, ‘Pay Taxes to get development’, not ‘Support our party in exchange for development’.

So why people should pay taxes and never get development?

Then tell them to stop paying taxes, instead ask them for support for your Dirty Deadly Party.
