DPP gurus go flat out in campaign to unseat MCP MP for Nkhotakota Central

The Democratic People’s Party (DPP) says it will do anything possible to claim the Nkhotakota Central Constituency in 2019, saying the current member of Parliament (MP) Peter Mazizi (Malawi Congress Party-MCP)  has done nothing for the people.

Ntaba: People of Nkhotakota central vote for DPP not MCP

DPP’s General Secretary, Grezelder Jeffrey, speaking at a rally in Nkhotakota on Sunday at Mpondagaga Primary School Ground, said MCP’s Mazizi has failed to initiate meaningful development projects which people can benefit from.

She said it was for this reason that her party would try to do anything possible to bail out the people of Nkhotakota Central from their present misery so that they can also have a cake of the various development programmes that the DPP led government is initiating in the country.

“I am feeling sorry for you people from Nkhotakota Central [Constituency]. For two years now, you have fallen in the wrong hands. You entrusted leaders who do not take your interest to parliament but only go there to brandish their egos by opposing anything,” she told the gathered crowd.

She revealed that some constituents from the area have personally come to complain to her on the development status of their area as they compare to what is happening in neighbouring constituencies.

She reassured the people that works to renovate the Salima-Nkhotakota road which is currently in bad shape will commence very soon as it is part of government’s priority commitments.

The DPP G.S. held the rally alongside other party gurus like the party’s Vice President for the centre Dr Hetherwick Ntaba, Minister of Justice Samuel Tembenu and regional governor for the centre Dean Josiah Banda.

On his part, Ntaba said people have analysed the performance of the incumbent MP and from their reaction, it is clear that they made a mistake in their choice and 2019 presents them with an opportunity to correct that wrong.

“It is important to put in positions leaders who can bargain on behalf of their people, people who are willing to serve not only their interests but take through to parliament the wishes of the people,” said Ntaba.

The Minister of Justice said such meetings were important as they act like platforms to popularise the numerous government development projects being undertaken.

“Government is undertaking several projects here like the Bua Irrigation Scheme, Stadium construction and the new depot which has just been finished. It is our wish to do more and we can safely make that pledge that we will do more,” said Tembenu.

Santana , dpp boot licker will always be there to make us laugh with his misguided predictions. He predicted that DPP will win the Bye elections in BT and Nsanje held on October 17 2017. The party failed miserably and he remained quite for some times before he bounced back with his wrong analysis.

Iwe Santana sukuwadziwa azaliwa adzayamba kugwa mu 2019 ndi SG wanu Jeff wa Jeffrey in Nkhotakota South, mmutu mulibe kalikonse and I wonder how the whole DPP with people who went to school and with good papers chose her to be party SG. She joined DPP to be compensated for the under quality works case which she corruptly won. Iwe Santana ndi MSUBU so you dont know us properly azaliwa people of Nkhotakota.

An MP does not bring development, but they initiative development projects with the constituents. The government supports the MP’s initiatives with resources. Now if the DPP government ignores the opposition MP’s calls for support, how do you expect development in the area? Mind you the people are not stupid as you think- they know that the government deliberately torpedoes development in the areas where there are opposition MPs. Malawians now understand the tricks of this failed government in order to win public sympathy.You will be shocked to see that the same MP has been voted back into Parliament. I will… Read more »
