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 is Chihana’s incompetence and opportunistic trends that led him to demoralise his supporters hence,the final demise of the mighty AFORD.Meanwhile,I would strongly advise our Mzuzu voters in the coming by- elections to overwhelmingly vote for AFORD candidate and at the same time,arrangements must be made to start rebuilding AFORD for the next general elections.Mind you,AFORD is the only vehicle for Nyikalanders to reach their promised land.ALUTA CONTINUA,VENCEREMOS ( THE STRUGGLE CONTINEUS ).

  9. Katong'ongo says:

    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.

    I know mzuzu and this is indeed hypocrisy and bull dozzing,
    mchengautuwa via mzuzu central needs bridges, chiwavi primary via mchengautuwa ² Primary(vigwagwa) needs briges, federation via sonda needs bridges, so why you hijack someone’s orleady cited project?
    this is disgracing and ridiculous.

    Grace Chiumia….!! ! with your DPP…. plz. Be civilised. Dont think we are all ignorant as ua DPP is. Tell the people in mzuzu about their loved ones you killed on July 20.
    U mean the whole Mzuzu only requires a bridge.?

    Iwe Chiumia ziphuphu zako.

  23. commentator says:

    Councillors, MPs and political parties have no business to sponsor development projects let alone as part of campaign. That is tantamount to vote buying. It diverts attention from issues based political debate and choice. It makes politics dirty. It erodes a self-help culture. It allows those with access to public funds to abuse their privilege, to rob government. It undermines accountability eg why did Mzuzu city council not construct the bridges. Campaign related gifts must be banned. They must be listed under corrupt practices. They must constitute grounds for disqualification of a candidate in a campaign for political office.

    Who is who then?

  27. Mbukavu says:

    Leadership is not about having money to build bridges It is about mobilising people to do for themselves what is good for their wellbeing

  28. The real ujeni says:

    There is need for continuous massive civic education because it seems the masses who are illiterate and ignorant still believe construction of bridges should be done by MP’s, what’s the job of government then?

  29. mtumbuka1 says:

    …construct bridges anywhere else where there are no elections.

  30. mtumbuka1 says:

    It just shows stupidity to fight over a useless bridge of an area just because there is an election. Malawi politics disgust me. Dpp is a party of thugs. If you are sincere and that this is not a mere campaign to blind those village voters then go ahead construct bridges anywhere else where they are no elections.
