DPP’s Chiumia hits at MCP as Chakwera drums up support Mlogera in Mzuzu by-elections

DPP deputy Secretary General Grace Chiumia said at Salisbury Line in Mzuzu on Friday where she provided construction materials for the completion of a bridge which MCP is alleged to have failed to accomplish after laying the foundation level with quorums made out of stones.

Chiumia dismissed  MCP’s candidate Charles Mlogera  claims made at a political rally at Chibanja Primary School on Thursday  by party’s President Dr . Lazarous Chakwera.

Mlogera apart from claiming that DPP had beaten an innocent woman, purported that it also vandalized a bridge which he constructed, claiming MCP wants to build a better one.

His remarks stunned many including Chakwera who condemned DPP leadership by urging registered voters to vote for MCP candidate  on August 25 polls, claiming the government has failed in all aspects of life.

DPP’s Chiumia has denied Mlogear clais.

 

“Mlogera must win the by-elections by telling the truth and not damaging DPP’s image. The truth is that he failed to construct the bridge and the reports he makes that we vandalized it to fail him are not true,” said Chiumia.

Chairman for Salisbury Line Development Committee Andrew Saka in an interview said after noticing Mlogera had failed to accomplish the bridge since campaign time was drawing to a close, they pleaded with the DPP candidate George Manda to finish it.

He said they made several reminders to Mlogera but he played monkey tricks by promising them the moon and had no choice but to plead with DPP’s Manda who responded positively within three hours by bringing 36 planks,5 bags cement I tone quarry and 2-tone sand as demanded .

But Mlogera in an interview was furious at DPP’s takeover saying he still feels the Arthur Peter Mutharika’s Party is provoking him, saying Chibanja ward has many bridges which need attention but why they opted to go for his project.

Chiumia said they have already rehabilitated a bridge near Katoto Grave Yard but felt to honour the request by village authorities at Salisbury line as they continue attending to other problems affecting the area.

Meanwhile, DPP’s Northern Region Governor Keneth Sanga said he knew Mlogera would not manage a bridge personally because he has no money.

Nyikalanders,if you really believe that our province is committed to Fedral system of the government,then you have to build a strong and visionary movement to lead our people to final dreams come true.I would strongly commend AFORD to lead this partriotic endeavour as it is the first party to introduce the multi- party system in the country only to be vanguished by a tribalistic oriented UDF in the first multi- party general elections.Having said that,I would strongly oppose the son of Chakufwa Chahana to lead the party as Malawi is not a Kingdom that leadership comes only from blood connections.Afterall,it… Read more »

Please DPP start first with construction of tombstones for the people you killed on 20 July 2011 and then turn to building of bridges. Banganya, lekani kupusikika na baskoghi aba ba DPP. DPP if you have more money, start with removing the useless airport from within the ward and leave cheap bridges to the opposition.
