MCP diaspora spokesman Chalo Mvula  said monitoring has been an area the party has not done well in the past  and those in diaspora thought  it will be nice to help in this area.

“It hasn’t been easy as most in the diaspora were affected by effects of the Covid19 pandemic, however, many dipped in their pockets to donate to the cause. All the MCP Diaspora Wings in RSA , South Africa,  Ireland, USA, Canada  and UK  including members from other countries were involved in this fundraising,” said Mvula

MCP Diaspora network raised the funds through individual giving  by its members from the regions, as well as virtual fundraising events that involved guests like Timothy Mtambo and Daud Suleman.

Why wasting time. A big fish has already funded everything regarding monitors in return for some contracts.
