Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) youths, under the banner of Blue League, on Monday donated over 300 bags of maize to food insecure families in Tengani village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Tengani in Nsanje district.
DPP Blue League is a group comprising of youths of all professions who are spread across the country with an aim to champion and enhance the party’s ideologies and development projects.
Nsanje is among 25 districts [4 in the north; 8 in the centre and 13 in the south] that were largely affected by dry-spells, hence the donation to the area.
The group’s members contributed towards the procurement of the donated maize, according to DPP Blue League Events Director Dumisani Lindani, who addressed the gathering, mainly beneficiaries on behalf their Chairperson, Zacheus Meke.
The distribution exercise took place at Mpatsa Community Day Secondary Secondary in the area.
Parliamentarian for the area, Francis Kasaila, who is also the Minister of Transport and Public Works, hailed the group for coming to the rescue of some food insecure families in his area.
Kasaila said as the party, they feel proud to have productive young people who are also taking leading role in championing national development agenda.
He therefore advised the youths not be used in violent pursuit of their political goals as it a despicable moral outrage.
“I would like to thank DPP Blue League members for organizing funds to purchase maize which we have received today. As a party we feel proud to have these youths who are developmnt conscious.
“This is what President Peter Mutharika would like to be. The youth must help and be supportive to national development agenda, not to be used by ill-fated and misguided politicians,” said Kasaila, who is also the Leader of Government in Parliament.
On his part, Lindani said they will always support the current administration to realize the promises it made to the nation.
Lindani further it is high time the youth moved away from ill-fated politicians and channel their energies and resources to national development.
“Blue League was set up to complement government efforts in addressing various challenges facing Malawians. We want to set a new record that will make a difference. We have joined hands to support Malawians in every possible way.
“We will also go to the centre and the north to donate maize to food insecure families. We will not be distracted by mudslinging by other political parties, whose leaders are busy fighting each other,” said Lindani.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
