Chiwaya wins UDF primary in Mangochi: Calls his victory an inspiration

While many season politicians have tumbled in their primary election across all political parties,  Dr Clement Terence Chiwaya, member of parliament for Mangochi Central Constituency silenced critics within the party and outside who said sitting MPs in UDF were afraid to go through primary elections when won resoundingly.

Chiwaya who scooped 1153 votes out of 1521 UDF officials eligible to vote was contesting against Saidi Chiwalo and Hassan Anussa.

In his victory speech, United Democratic Front (UDF) parliamentary Chief Whip thanked his constituents and called his victory  “a source of inspiration”.

Chiwaya pledged to continue to serve his people with humility.

“You have spoken and who am I to refuse this honour.  I will continue to serve you with utmost humility and dedication,” said Chiwaya amid ululations.

UDF announced it will conduct primary elections in all 193 constituencies.

The party’s torch bearer  Atupele Muluzi will have his primaries on 27 January in Machinga North East.
