“ PP will feature, Evans Kapito in Machinga South, Rabison Kaluwire, Machinga Likwenu; Martha Kabaisa, Machinga Central; and Janet Mambo Machinga Central East,” he said.
Former UDF parliamentarian, Wilson Ndomondo will represent the party in Machinga South East while Rodson Nakanga will feature in Machinga East.
Though PP’s Ajilu Kalitendere maintained that he was the rightful candidate for the party in Machinga North East Constituency, PP officially announced that Sharrif Mapasa will represent the party in the area.
UDF, the expected PP challenger in the region, has not yet held its primaries in the district.
