This is some good news we just follow him from a distance and honestly he is a brilliant guy. For a few brave young patriotic men we have in Malawi, I would vote for this guy Ben Chiza anytime.

Ben has potential to be one of Africa’s great men, he just needs to get married and settle down. Campaign you will need a wife don’t present those town girls in Rumphi it will work against you.

Bravo Ben Chiza, we have youth groups we want you to lead the movement. We want real development in the North, they neglect us on development, we beg for a piece of malawis pie. We also need an international airport, why do we have to travel all the way to Lilongwe to catch a flight? We welcome your airport idea we have enough land for a big airport. We will help you organise a large inclusive developmental rally in Mzuzu.
