Ministry of Gender, Child, Disability and Social welfare Patricia Kaliati has advised people in Karonga to maintain their Members of Parliament (MP) who are delivering and not change for the sake of politics, saying that would minimise violence.
She made the remarks during her visit in the district where she was responding to the Karonga Central Constituency MP Frank Mwenefumbo appeal of asking government to conduct a civic educate to people of his area in order to avoid political violence.
She pointed out that choosing different candidates in every electoral calendar encourages violence hence the community should stick to an MP who is delivering.
“It is very shameful that up to date over 50 years of independent other areas in the country are still experiencing conflicts during electoral period. We need development in our areas and if an MP is delivering, why changing,” said Kaliati.
“In my constituency everyone know that the area belongs to Patricia Kaliati hence new candidates don’t stand a chance to win in that constituency no matter what, so it is our duty to change the mindset of our community to be having peaceful elections,” she said.
Paramount Chief Kyungu said: “it is true that every electoral period we experience problems in Karonga Central Constituency as such we really need to try some strategies that can help to change the malpractice in the area.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
