DPP’s Grace Kwelepeta to challenge PP’s Roy in Zomba-Malosa: Donates to health facilities

Zomba- Malosa Constituency aspiring candidate for 2019, Grace Kwelepeta on Friday donated assorted items to patients at Machinjiri and Domasi health centres in Zomba District.

Speaking after the donation she made to antenatal, post-natal care, female and children’s wards at the two health facilities, Kwelepeta said she wanted to cheer the patients who usually have different needs during the time they are in hospitals.

“What motivated me to come up with this donation was that such health facilities do not receive any direct assistance for the patients,” she said.

Kwelepeta added that she has also been undertaking different charity programmes such as sponsoring football and netball bonanzas in the constituency, as one way of assisting the communities.

The aspiring candidate then called for women support if the 50-50 campaign was to be achieved in the 2019 elections.

Kwelepeta said there was need for more support in terms of leadership skills as well as resources towards women to achieve what the country desires in its 50-50 campaign.

“Despite the many challenges women face in elected positions, I am ready to contest for the parliamentary seat on a Democratic Progressive Party ticket,” she challenged.

One of the beneficiaries to the donation at Domasi Health Centre, Phales Mtakwire of Likonde Village expressed gratitude to the shadow MP.

Mtakwire said she would not such a donation as she was in need of the materials that the Kwelepeta brought to the patients at the health facility.

The assorted items included bread, petroleum jelly, juice and soap worth MK300 000.

Kwelepeta will challenge People’s Party (PP) Roy Kachale, the incumbent MP in the constituency.

Roy had a stand when he was in the ruling party. Unfortunately the party is now leaderless. It is like a headless snake, it cannot bite. So Patrick Phiri is saying the truth. Roy is even failing to bring the party together. Every passing day we are hearing of defections of not mere members but MPs. Do we have a party there, Mr Santabright?

Is DPP still practising old politics of donations to buy public favour? You haven’t learnt anything from Ngwenya who donated a maize mill and lost. After all, Parliament agree paassed a law to ban donation last November and Kasaila was in the forefront, but now you can see how the same DPP is violating the law. This is when the opposition should bite.. Even if DPP is in numbers, you can still make it feel the heat, the way the Democrats did in the USA.
