President Joyce Banda has said she has a solid track record which will help her win next week’s presidential race.
Speaking at Chizungu in Mzimba Hora Constituency on Saturday after she gave several houses built under the Mudzi Transformation Trust, she said: “I have come here to apply for a job and beg for your votes. My CV speaks for itself.”
She told the gathering that she was committed as leader of Malawi to ensure that the rural poor people have good living standards.
“I have built houses for the needy, we brought safe and potable water to several communities in the country; we have distributed several cows to the poor.
“We have done such projects and several others for the benefit of Malawians,” the President said.
Banda also reminded Malawians at the ground of the significant transformation of lives for the better in the country.
“When I took over as president of Malawi you know there were several challenges like shortage of fuel and foreign exchange (forex). The import cover was at one week while my Government has improved that to about three months at the moment and we have plenty of fuel,” she stressed.
The President also promised Malawians that she would continue to fight for their well being.
“I will continue to build houses for the poor; I will continue to distribute cows for families and in particular to help the poor people of this country,” said Banda.
Banda then asked the people of Malawi to be the judge on May 20, 2014, at the end of the tripartite elections exercise.
“My fellow Malawians you know what I have done for this country. I have come here to ask for your vote. If you want the programmes we have been doing for the people of Malawi like the ones I have mentioned to continue, vote for me and your son Sosten Gwengwe [vice presidential nominee],” she said.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
