Big Bullets veteran midfield workhorse Fischer ‘Anong’a’ Kondowe who earlier ruled out plans to join politics appears to have succumbed to people’s call to contest for a parliamentary seat during the May 2014 Tripartite Elections.
Kondowe told Nyasa Times that “after taking a huge amount of thought” he has accepted “people’s call” for him to stand as an independent candidate for Blantyre City South Constituency.
“I have been persuaded to run as an independent MP. I have accepted the calls because Jah (Jahova) wants me to serve His people.
“Since my childhood days, I have never seen any meaningful progress in the constituency and I believe and make a difference,” said the 31-year-old dreadlocked rasta.
The constituency’s current member of Parliament is Minister of Tourism Moses Kunkuyu, who has switched to Dedza Central Constituency.
Kondowe started his football career at Bullets in 2002. He played for the side until 2005 when he went to South Africa on a professional deal at Umtata Bush Bucks. A year later, he joined another South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Black Leopards before he returned to Bullets in 2011.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
