Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and United Democratic Front ((UDF) alliance running mate in the forthcoming presidential re-run, Atupele Muluzi has promised people in the country that they aim at making Malawi better for everyone.
The young Muluzi made the promise at St Augustine III in Mangochi where he conducted a campaign rally on Sunday.
Muluzi told the gathering that the DPP-UDF alliance wants to eliminate hunger and poverty completely in the next five years.
He said the Peter Mutharika has already introduced the K35 000 monthly allowances targeting one million households to help mitigate the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the next six months.
“Mutharika is the most considerate leader, our government will always priotise the welfare of poor people, vote us in power so that together we may form good Malawi,” he said.
On education, the UDF president said they will ensure they provide quality education in the Eastern Region which has high dropout rates due to neglect by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) regime to construct more schools.
“MCP ignored people from this Region, they violated the right to education by deliberately constructing few schools, most schools here are owned by the Catholic church and other organisations,” he explained.
Taking her turn, UDF’s vice president for the Region, Lilian Patel asked people to vote for the DPP/UDF alliance so that they may continue to enjoy the fruits of democracy.
She said with Atupele in government, people from the region should be assured of development projects.
“Let’s not make mistakes by voting for other parties here, DPP-UDF is planning to construct five star hotel and airport, please let’s not lose such opportunity,” she said.
Traditional Authority (T/A) Mponda commended Mutharika for picking Muluzi as his running mate saying it signifies great honour to the people of the Eastern Region.
“I would like to commend Mutharika for picking Atupele Muluzi to be his running, I can assure him that the people of Mangochi will surely vote for him considering the fact that Mutharika has also brought several developments here,” he added.
Malawi goes to the polls on June 23 with Mutharika and Muluzi set to tussle with Tonse Alliance team of Lazarus Chakwera of MCP and Saulos Chilima of UTM as his running mate.
The other candidate is of Mbakuwaku Movement for Democracy’s (MMD) Peter Kuwani and his running mate, Archibald Kalawang’oma.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
