A former member of parliament from Balaka North Gertrude Handrina Maseko has asked people in the constituency to return her to parliament and also vote for Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Presidential torch bearer Peter Mutharika her lover – saying she would be at State House as First Lady.
Speaking during a whistle-stop campaign meeting Mutharika addressed in the eastern region which took him from Balaka, Machinga and Mangochi, Maseko said she would serve the people better in government and that one of their own will be taking up residence in the presidential palace as the nation’s first lady.
Maseko is said to be in an affair with Mutharika and would have a State wedding if DPP wins May 20 elections.
“I want to appeal to you to vote for DPP on councillor, MP and president tick where there Peter Mutharika with a symbol of three cob maize,” said Maseko.
In his speech throughout his whistle-stop, Mutharika lamented low employment rates amongst the youths who could have contributed to the development of the nation as one of the reason why most of them resort into irresponsible behaviours.
Mutharika then urged people to vote for the party so that once it gets into power, such issues would be a thing of the past, thereby ensuring a better Malawi for everyone.
“Let me assure you all that once voted to power on May 20, we are to turn community day secondary schools (CDSSs) into community colleges so that at least everyone gets tertiary education. This would also decrease congestion in our already existing universities,” he said.
The DPP leader highlighted that from such colleges, youths would acquire skills in entrepreneurship, vocational training so that despite facing employment hardships, they would venture into self-employment.
On issues of food security and economy, the 74-year-old Mutharika said that he would continue with the Farm Input Subsidy Program (FISP) so that the country continues to be food secure. He also emphasized that the DPP led government would review some of the taxes so that tobacco growers do reap what they sow rather than weeping after sweating.
“Much more than that, our government would also subsidize iron sheets and cement so that all people afford decent houses. We are geared to improve the well-being of Malawians in all areas,” said Mutharika.
He therefore called on all who registered to vote for the DPP’s candidates from the President, Members of Parliament and Councilors for a better Malawi of all people.
Mutharika then advised people to keep their voter registration cards on safer places and never sell them to anybody so that they would vote on May 20th and let DPP lead them into a prosperous Malawi.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
