Former Alliance for Democracy (AFORD) Publicity Secretary Dan Msowoya who lost primary elections in Mzuzu City Constituency the party conducted on Monday, says he will stand as an independent candidate .
Msowoya lost the primaries to Apostle McHellings Kayala with 54 votes against 89 in a two-horse race.
But Msowoya said he is going to contest as an independent.
Ironically with only a day left for candidates to submit nomination papers, Msowoya is appealing for well wishers to sponsor him pay MK200,000 as nomination fees.
Msowoya made the fervent appeal in statement on Thursday and also unveiled his summarised manifesto.
“My needs are really to assist my logistics and hereby appeal to you all for assistance. My Account number is at the Mzuzu Branch of the National Bank of Malawi, and the number is 0133052179600 in the name of Dan Kennedy Msowoya
“I have been given tomorrow Friday at 13:00 hrs local time to present my nomination papers. I have genuine concerns for this City; it lacks facilities particularly medical facilities. There is also growing lawlessness and crime for the legislature and Councils to address,” he said.
Msowoya said he has stood his ground to condemn and indict the current regime for the cash gate nuisance, rampant corruption, nepotism, regionalism and tribalism.
“Surprisingly the majority of the political fraternity are tight-lipped on these discourses except isolated voices including my own,” he said.
Msowoya Msowoya the primary elections which he lost as biased against him due to his regular criticism of Aford president Enoch Chihana.
