Former chairman of Malawi Association UK, Clement Chunga, has won a seat as a councillor in the British general lections held last week Thursday which saw Prime Minister David Cameron returning to 10 Downing Street after his Conservative Party won with a decisive majority.
Chunga is a member of the British Labour Party and has won as Councillor of Brookside in Northampton.
The Malawian said he was ready “to serve” in his local government position of councillor.
Chunga, who teaches at Northampton College and previously working in housing, said the state of environment is his big concern.
Many Malawians in UK were eligible voters and went to cast their ballots.
In the British parliamentary elections, Conservatives gained 336 seats in the Commons, giving them a majority.
Labour leader Ed Miliband resigned on Friday, saying his party must “rebuild” with a new leader.
Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has called it quits as his party which was in coalition with Conservative was reduced from 57 to eight MPs.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage also announced he will inform his party he was quitting after he failed to win a seat. His party amassed millions of votes in England, more than the SNP in Scotland, but they have struggled to convert them into seats.
History was also made in the election, as a 20-year-old Scottish student became Britain’s youngest lawmaker since 1667, ousting one of Labour party’s top figures in the process.
