Chimulilenji made the call on Saturday during a rally he held at Nsenjere Primary School ground in the area of Paramount Chief Lundu in Chikwawa District.

The Vice-President said DPP-led  administration has earmarked a number of developmental projects such as road infrastructure, teachers’ houses and electrification programme to be implemented in the country.

As such, he said, there is need for people, regardless of their political, cultural and religion affiliations, to join hands in accomplishing the quest.

“President Professor Peter Mutharika is a development conscious leader and is ready to work with anyone in building the nation.

“But what is most important is to love one another and also for us to live in harmony,” he said.

Chimulilenji then reiterated his continued loyalty towards Mutharika and DPP values to serve Malawians better.

He then expressed gratitude to the people in Chikwawa for not participating in demonstrations saying the current protests in some parts of the country are aimed at destroying private and public infrastructure.

DPP Regional Governor for the South Charles Mchacha thanked people especially in Chikwawa for giving fresh mandate to the party president to govern the country in years to come.

“Let me assure you that government will make sure that it responds with food assistance to all hunger stricken families,” he said.

Speaking earlier, Paramount Chief Lundu asked government to construct teachers’ houses at Nsenjere Primary School and upgrade feeder roads to ease mobility challenges.

During the rally, DPP welcomed 350 people who have defected from the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

‘…..to ensure continued development of the country’ – he can’t possibly be referring to Malawi, surely; Where does he live, this deluded man? Does he consider the Lower Shire to be developed? Please give us sensible examples of ‘continued development’. We don’t see any evidence around us. Mind you, APM has promised to raise the country to the level of Germany and Singapore during this term of office, i.e. in the four years remaining. Ugh, some hope!

those are mere community members and they have no impact in as far as party system is concerned. DPP should stop fooling it self. Amalawi timapanga zandale paja nthawi zonse instead of developing our own nation. political rallies for what? why cant u organise national rally where every one can attend without party colors? were a joke

Does this tell us that Campaign is officially on? Why people are defecting from DPP to MCP & Vice versa????? Because in my noble mind this only happens during Campaign periods. So is this telling us something that we dont see?????

Not even one of those so-called defectors is being mentioned a name here and his or her position ku MCP akuti achokako. Mere propaganda basi. Munya rerun ikubwerayi. Atupere ndi uyu wayinunkhiza kale ruling wabwera athandize Chakwera.

Sidik Mia held a rally in chikwawa and people defected from dpp to mcp. Chimulirenji holds rally in chikwawa and people defected from mcp to dpp. So they are back at the square 1. In chikwawa mcp is not as popular for a long time. Especially after it killed malemu solobala

DPP is also not popular after it killed Njaunju and that Poly student and after trying to bribe the judges and after stealing votes with tippex and after Mutharika stole K145 million from tax payers.

This is poverty that is making people to behave like headless chickens. Look at the way these people looks like, do you think they are honest with themselves? I don’t think so, all they were hoping for was food for the day; poverty is the biggest sin and the most foolish thing that could ever happen to humankind.
