National Salvation Front (Nasaf) will hold its convention this November in readiness for next years elections.
NASAF president James Nyondo said this on Wednesday when he donated drugs to Mlale health centre in Lilongwe.
“All positions will be up for grabs. We want leaders who have sacrificed for the party because such leaders would also sacrifice for their country,” said Nyondo.
He said the convention will be held in Lilongwe and most probably at the Natural Resources College.
“Everything for the convention, money and what have you is ready,” said Nyondo but did not disclose the convention budget.
Malawi Electoral Support Network recently called on political parties to hold conventions as time was running out before the elections.
During his address to hundreds of Nasaf supporters who gathered at Mlale in Chimera village, Nyondo bemoaned the high cost of living saying 50 years after independence most Malawians are still in abject poverty.
He said that is why the youth leave the country to work in other countries instead of developing their country, Malawi.
“There’s is no meaning of life in 50 years of independence when we still depend on a hoe as a main tool for farming in a country whose economy largely depends on agriculture,” said Nyondo.
“Our men are praised for hardworking in other countries. Why are we failing to keep them here to develop our country? Nasaf government will address that,” he said.
He said the country needs solutions to its many problems which he said leaders have failed to address over the years.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
