Former Mzuzu City Parliamentarian Good Kaira has said he is confident that he will reclaim his seat come the May 2014 tripartite elections.
Kaira made the remarks on Friday at Mzuzu City council chambers where he was the last candidate to file his nomination papers as the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) closed the nomination business ceremony at 4pm.
“I didn’t participate in the People’s Party (PP) primaries but Mzuzu residents want me back to parliament due to developments I put across which they can’t have today hence I filed this nomination as independent candidate late,” Kaira told the MEC reporter.
“I didn’t lose to Professor Peter Mwanza in the 2009 general elections but the Democratic progressive Party(DPP) pre-arranged my failure. However, they were betrayed as their man failed to tick, hence people want me back,” Kaira who claims the Mzuzu Reserve Bank, Msongwe clinic, Chiputula police unit and many schools were his brain projects.
He said with the reintroduction of councilors, he thinks should he win the post as parliamentarian, his job to bring extra developments will be eased.
Meanwhile, Mwanza risk not contesting on the position as councillor in Masasa ward as published last week in the media because he missed the nomination paper submission process.
Returning officer for Mzuzu city constituency Lobbo Mhango in an interview Friday confirmed she has not received any nomination documents from the former minister of agriculture.
But in an interview, the DPP Regional Governor for the north Ken Sanga said professor Mwanza is outside Malawi but believes he filed his nomination before he left.
