Former ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) torchbearer Peter Mutharika is confident that his party will form the next government after next year’s elections.
Mutharika sounded this on Friday when he took his convoy into the waters of Lisungwi river to address his supporters in Nkhombe area who gathered at Lisungwi school ground in Neno district.
He said oblivion was not part of an equation for DPP, making it clear to the people of Malawi at all venues that “storm or no storm am geared to serve Malawians and I will.”
Mutharika said the people of Malawi should register to vote next year to bringing the DPP back to power for meaningful development which the country was currently yearning for.
“ I will make sure no Malawian child goes to bed on empty stomach, they must have access to reliable food sources and access to better health care services,” said Mutharika.
He pledged to enhance internal security for safety of all Malawians and their businesses.
Mutharika also said will construct the remaining four universities – Bangula, Mangochi, Mombela and Lilongwe.
He also wants to establish community colleges across the country.
Peter Mutharika’s ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ public relations office has said the “ overwhelming response of masses that flocked at each stop [in the southern region tour] has been in masses of thousands leaving no room for other candidates to stand a chance.
“It shows that Malawians are hopeful and demand change, they want DPP to go back into power.”
