Alliance for Democracy (AFORD) is set to hold its indaba on August 22 this year where among other things it will hold conventions for National Executive members and the party’s president.
The party’s Secretary General Nkwauli Msiska said the party’s convention was scheduled for last April but was cancelled due to some logistical challenges.
“We have decided to have our convention in August from 22 to 23 in Mzuzu specifically at Mary mount,” he said.
Minister of Sports and Youth Development, who is also Rumphi Central Parliamentarian, Enock Chihana has declared his interest to contest for Aford top post.
Aford was founded by trade unionist Chakufwa Chihana (father to Enock Chihana) in 1992. In the 1994 general elections, the party swept all the 33 seats in northern region and three others in central region.
By the time Chakufwa Chihana died in 2006, the party had only six parliamentary seats. Currently, it has two members of parliament, Khwauli Msiska and Enock Chihana who are both ministers in the PP led government.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
