The Democratic Progressive Party(DPP) has warned registered voters in the forth coming Mzuzu city’s Chibanja ward by-elections that they risk losing the plot should they vote for an opposition party come August 25 Local Government polls.
Deputy Minister of Defense in the DPP led government Jappie Mhango made the statement when he held a political rally at the New Jerusalem School in the ward last Saturday selling the manifesto of the party that plans are on advanced stage to put development structures in the area.
Mhango said government intends to build a public clinic for people to access health services in the area quickly going to Mzuzu Central Hospital which is far.
“ Apart from the clinic, we plan to erect public schools, ADMARC deport ,improve road infrastructure among others,” said Mhango.
But Mhango who is also the DPP national campaign Director emphasized the need to vote for George Manda the party’s torch bearer come the polls, saying he is the one to drive these projects.
He dismissed the Alliance for Democracy’s political gimmick which the party’s president Enock Chakufwa Chihana made last Saturday in the area that Government is planning to impose a K5000 tuition fee in primary Schools to complement its zero budget, those are the kicks of a dying horse since Aford is no longer alive.
On his part, the DPP Governor for the North Kenneth Sanga said the remarks by Chihana are made to brainwash their party’s supporters from rallying behind government.
Meanwhile, Sanga advised the residents of Chibanja ward to get all the gifts these other parties dangle to them but remember to chalk on the DPP’s candidacy come the polling day.
