DPP’s Ngwenya intensifies campaign with K2.5mil football bonanza

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) aspirant in the forthcoming Lilongwe City South East Constituency by-elections, Reuben Ngwenya over the weekend launched the football bonanza as one way of wooing voters ahead of the October 17 polls.

Ngwenya joined  by Minister Jean Kalilani launching the football bonanza as party of his campaign

Speaking during the launch at Msambeta Primary School, Ngwenya a former diplomat at the Malawi Embassy in Japan said the objective of the bonanza is to keep youths in the area busy.

“Only few days before official closing date of the campaign, my message has always been simple, vote for Ngwenya and achieve enormous development,” said Ngwenya.

Ngwenya rose to the rank of Brigadier General in the Malawi Defence Force (MDF) until former president the late Bingu wa Mutharika appointed him Ambassador to Japan in March 2011.

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC)  called for a by-election in the constituency after the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal ordered a re-run following the nullification of the May 20 2014 Tripartite Elections that declared DPP’s Bentley Namasasu winner. The elections were contested in court by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) candidate Ulemu Msungama who argued there were irregularities in the elections.

Msungama is also in the race for October 17.

Hey guys remember this is not a polling station ok what you should know is that it’s not only you who will be casting the votes …. but the bonafide citizens of Lilongwe City South East, kkk but look some of you are not even from this area you are from Rwanda and some of you are fro Mozambique kkkkk please take care will arrest you!!!!!!


Voting for Msungama means keeping the development in this area on hold til the time we will be choosing a government. Can a wise person vote for a person who despite his win he will occupy an opposition seat?


Bonanza , chigayo zinali kuti. Am sure zabwera chifukwa chamnyamatayu..koma voti ndimuntima. Mine is for energetic youngman. Zokasinza mu parliament ndiine ayi.


I will vote for Msungama


A Ngwenya mukanangosiya coz mubetsa zambiri. Simungawine not even quarter of the votes casted.


First time I knew Ngwenya as a young man some 30 years ago when he was Captain in Malawi Army Intelligence Unit under the Command of General Liabunya. He was charming and warm hearted. He does not behave as Tumbuka but a real Ngoni warrior of the order of Chaka Zulu. My vote is for Ngwenya!

Ngwenya is truly man of the people. My vote is surely his.
