DPP warns against voting for opposition in Mzuzu by-elections

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.

Mhango(L) and Sanga dismiss Aford political gimmick as baseless.

Mhango(L) and Sanga dismiss Aford statements

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.

Development projects should not be politicised. The role of MPs is to make laws, not to drive projects. That’s the role of local government and central government. Do not blackmail illiterate people here! Every constituency deserves development whether in the hands of an opposition MP or not. Mr Mhango is already proving to be more stupid that Nankhumwa with his idiotic utterances!

As northerners, we have come a long way making decisions based on what our hearts tell us i.e. issue based, not what DPP is barking around. Jappie, if you are a bonafide northerner, be courageous enough, go back and tell your Mapwevupwevu masters the following: – 1. Remove the cattle grazing ranch across Chibanja fakely termed Mzuzu airport to where it is supposed to be. It is hindering the growth of the city. 2. Desolve the nepotistic grouping working as a secret employment bureau for Lhomwes(Is it Mlakho wa aLhomwe or Malikhu ya wa Lhomwe?). 3. Even if DPP will… Read more »

Don’t take northerners like southerners who are iliterate and easily to be cheated.Take your QUOTA system to vote for yourselves.


Rubbish Mhango and rubbish DPP. Go to hell with your plans and empty promises, do you think malawians are dumb to know how failure you are? Stupit mhango.

Plans to do this, plans to do that. All the DPP have is plans for future development. What people want to hear is what has the DPP actually done. ‘Show us what you have done to develop Malawi since you came into power in 2014’. Actions speak louder than words. Anyone who votes for the DPP candidate needs his/her head examining. The DPP is a metaphor for stagnation. Nothing has been achieved and the country is going backwards since the DPP came to power. How anyone can campaign on behalf of the DPP amazes me. The slogan should be ‘Anyone… Read more »

If you want development, vote for a DPP Counsellor. Mukangolakwitsa kuvotera nyansi zotsutsa, mudzalira nokha.


Mxiii, koma zinazi??? Akuti ‘We will build a clinic when you vote for a DPP councillor???” You mean the whole project of a clinic should wait for the voting of a councillor??? I thought DPP is always a governing party??? What the hell is this nonsense????


DPP inakupherani abale anu 20 pa 20 July, 2011 ndiye mukufuna kuivoteranso. Anthu inu ndinu otani?


I don’t like comments made by Hon J. Mhango. He is a learned person but it is sad to say that development in Chibanja will not be done if the people vote for another party rather than DPP. All of us pay taxes hence development should not be politicised.
