Malawi Congress Party (MCP) national headquarters youths on Sunday continued with its roadshow in the capital Lilongwe as part of a new strategy to sell the party’s president Lazarus Chakwera and his policies to voters.
During the road shows, MCP youth interacted with the party supporters asking several questions to people about history and plans of the party. Those who give right answers were given wrappers (zitenje) and other party materials.
MCP Youth Wing national Coordinator Felix Sambakusi said the aim of the road shows was to strengthen the party.
“We don’t want to be a dormant party, as you are aware that soon after the polls, most political parties goes for recess but MCP as a major political party do not want to go into bed,” said Sambakusi.
He said MCP youths have devoted themselves to spread the good plans of its party president Lazarous Chakwera for Malawi.
Winding up the show, the MCP youths converged at Lumbadzi Trading Centre where five party MPs gathered to welcome them.
In his statement MP for the area Njoka Chipeni commended the youths for the shows.
“Most people associate youths as future leaders but in MCP we believe that you are the current leaders,” said Chipeni.
Chipeni accused government of failing to bring development in the area.
In his speech Member of Parliament for Dowa East Richard Chimwendo endorsed Chakwera as MCP torch bearer for 2019 presidential polls.
“Compete on the other positions but not on Chakwera, because he holds the key regarding the future of this country,” said Chimwendo.
Chimwendo also accused the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government of practising nepotism , saying only few people are enjoying the national cake
“Just imagine out of 20 ministers in cabinet, only one minister from the central region and the majority are from Lhomwe belt,” he observed.
Chimwendo told the people that they need a new government to make them better off.
“Malawi needs a better plan with a national leader in Chakwera. This country needs a Malawi Congress Party government,” he said.
Some of the MPs present during the rally in Lumbadzi included Dr Jessie Kabwira of Salima North West, Youth Director Robin Lowe, Ezekiel Ching’oma and Njoka Chipeni.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
