Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Dr Lazarus Chakwera on Thursday spent time during lunch hours to interact with vendors and customers in the capital Lilongwe.
Chakwera spent time with the unexpected people from Area 13 market, Wenela restaurants, Area 3 market and finally Tsoka market.
While at Area 3 market, Chakwera spent time to have a talk with different people and at the end bought some Kanyenya (roasted meat) and shared some meals with some customers who received him with pomp.
While at Wenela, people had to return after having lunch to spend some time with Chakwera while discussing issues ranging from governance and tips on how MCP can win the elections.
“People have trust in MCP, we need to come together as a party to rescue Malawians from the current mess,” a man who identified himself as John Banda was heard telling Chakwera.
But the climax of all came about when he visited Area 3 and Tsoka market where business came to stand still as vendors enveloped him.
According to the party’s vice Spokesperson Ezekiel Ching’oma, Chakwera decided going around the town to interact with the people just to chat and appreciate with what they are going through.
In another development, President Joyce Banda has invited Lilongwe Vendors to Kamuzu Palace on Friday, 28 March, 2014, apparently in fulfillment of her promise to help them move forward in their businesses.
Chairperson for Lilongwe Area 3 Market, Mussa Chimwala, disclosed that they had received an invitation from the State House during the day, according to Malawi News Agency.
He said one of the issues that they would ask for from the President is that she should assist them with capital and a place where they could conduct their businesses.
