Chilumpha to battle Assani in Nkhota-Kota South

Former Vice President Cassim Chilumpha filed his nomination papers before the Nkhota-kota District Commissioner (DC) to renew his mandate for a parliamentary seat in the district’s south constituency as an independent candidate.

Chilumpha dumped the ruling People’s Party (PP) about two months ago – despite being elected at the party’s national indaba as vice president for the central region – alleging that President Joyce Banda was favouring Fahad Assani, the current Justice Minister.

Speaking Friday after presenting his papers, the former vice president during the Bingu wa Mutharika regime, said he was certain of emerging victorious in the May 20 tripartite elections.

He is going to battle with Assani who also lost to him in the 2009 parliamentary elections.

“I’ll stand and do as much as I can, and leave the rest to voters so they can decide,” said Chilumpha, whose symbol beamed a borehole.
