Former outspoken Malawi Cabinet minister Patricia Kaliati says she celebrates “a special result” as she looked set to a renewed parliamentary mandate and branded herself as a true conviction politician who devotes her times in serving the people, hence reelected parliamentarian for Mulanje West.
Kaliati—whose last Cabinet post was Information and Civic Education in the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration—has said her relection is testimony that she is “a people’s politician.”
“To be a successful politician you need a defining mission. I define myself with the people at the grassroots. I don’t use honourable title for showbiz. I am Akweni, down-to-earth,” said Kaliati.
“I can celebrate with my constituents, relection is something fantastic.”
Meanwhile, former Minister of Information and PP vice-president for the Southern Region, Brown Mpinganjira, has lost in Mulanje Central Constituency where DPP’s Kondwani Nankhuma retained his seat.
But Mpinganjira’s PP counterpart in the Central Region, Uladi Mussa, has retained his Salima South Constituency seat.
Former Finance Minister Ken Lipenga, who was dropped from Cabinet midway during President Joyce Banda’s two years as President also tumbled.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
