Muthalika has been holding different political and development rallies in four districts in the region since Wednesday last week.

Speaking during the last rally in Chitipa, DPP regional governor for the north Keneth Sanga said the Presidential visit has helped them to lure a number  of elected leaders and followers from opposition parties.

“To say the truth, your one week visit here in the north has really helped us to boost our party in the region because many elected leaders and followers from opposition parties have joined us,” said Sanga.

“Apart from that we have managed to launch and open different kind of infrastructure projects in the north that we believe that it will mostly help us during the election,” he added.

Concurring with Sanga, DPP national Secretary General Acklen Kudontoni said this is tthe party is slowly reclaiming the north as its political stronghold.

He said “no President has managed to develop or stay in the north for almost one week like  Muthalika because it was regarded as dead zone.”

Kudontoni said DPP would  like the “vibrancy” of the party and be fully structured across the country.

During the visit in the north about 6 councillors from Peoples Party and their followers as well as the Secretary General for the Umodzi party joined DPP.

Yet again, clear evidence that Malawi’s ruling party is more interested in maintaining power than developing the country or bettering the lives of its poor! Just take a look at the daily headlines: few concern development; most are about how politicians are developing their own careers… and how the members of other parties jump aboard that bandwagon. The level of tribalism is worrying, too. Surely after all these years we should ALL be Malawians, just wanting our country to reach the same heights of development, prosperity as our neighbours, other countries doing so much better than us when they’ve had… Read more »

That is how Ndale as in Chichewa best suits description for this scenario.I agree with the common mans comments that “Ndale ndi bodza”. That there is laterally no truth in politics it is true. Even if the president slaps a Malawian politician he will say the president gave me a facial pat. These guys are typical crooks Ask Amayi J, she was shocked considering the amount of patronage she enjoyed at rallies. More people attend rallies with different reasons.Nanji ku Chitipa some might have flocked kukaona ndege then you start boosting, lifeless speeches. At the ground people are suffering yet… Read more »

Compared DPP and MCP, I would rather vote for DPP if the worse comes to worst. At present, I prefer if a dog could contest as a presidential candidate, i will vote for it. It is better to nyodwa ndi gula kupotsa zipani ziwirizi

Can the party that cause pain bring about joy to the some people I hope so. And let those who are selfish and self centered spare this country from miles and hatred. Why can’t we support the ruling party? What profit will we gain by avoiding and castigating ruling party? Lets move on and oppose when ever is needed to do so and also correct when ever is necessary. Lets love our motherly and dearly nation is ours not for others we all Malawians.

I hate tribalism, and what i am about to write must not be taken as tribalism. With due respect the people of Karonga and Chitipa cannot remember their own children that had died for notable causes of the entire Country and yet in the end some were being chased around all over the world and murdered. Politically the President has been ill advised to accept the name of his late brother to be the one for Karonga/ Chitipa road. If the president thinks he has gained a political mirage, he is mistaken, he has just lost it. I hate, really… Read more »

Iwe Choda, or whoever you call yourself, ife akumpoto sitinaiwale the killings of MCP! In the same vein, sitingaiwale the killings of DPP because the DPP’s killings are just 5 years old! Bolanso mabala a MCP omwe ndi akale (over 30 years old), koma a DPP akupwetekabe – so for us, we can go for DPP just because MCP committed atrocities! DPP is a killer party and very anti-North – and my Northern region friends have now realised this!

Do not take Northerners for granted.Peter and his brother Bingu have incredible grudges against the Northerners for reasons best known to themselves.For instance Bingu was heard saying,I quote: Tumbukas are very few population wise,how come that every office you enter,a Tumbuka is a boss,why,he asked.How would a State President ask such a divisive question? Recently,Peter filled unqualified students in two Nkata-Bay secondary schools from South and Central Malawi while,local students even though they scored required points by far more than students from South and Central.Northerners have not forgotten the unlawful and tribalistically motivated repatriation of Northerners from the two provinces… Read more »

Mr Kachale

How is Mugabe? Your tribalism and hatred for people of the centre and south will never help you. People in Chitipa and Karonga voted for DPP. What you are saying here is wishful thinking. Malawi on ground zero in Chitipa and Karonga think differently from you. Mubwereko ku Zimbabweko muzawone Nokia momwe anthu a Kuchitipa ndi Karonga akuchikondera Chipani cha Diphiphi!!!!
