The President, who addressed whistle-stop rallies in Kasungu District at Mphomwa, Chatoloma and Nkhamenya on his way to Mzuzu,  said he is a development conscious leader who has on bringing national infrastructure assets.

“I am asking you to vote for DPP as it is a development conscious party, in the last five years we have brought Malata and cement subsidy program, social cash transfer, farm input subsidy program, community colleges, roads, hospitals and schools. We will continue this in the next five years,” he assured.

Mutharika also promised community colleges for all constituencies in the district, including the three constituencies he visited.

He reiterated that DPP government will provide potable water and rehabilitate roads such as the Simlemba to Kapelula road which covers areas of eight chiefs in the district.

Like he has done in other districts he has addressed his campaign rallies, Mutharika also pledged seven new secondary schools for Kasubgu to increase access to secondary education, saying one will be at Mphomwa.

Mutharika also said government is determined to protect tobacco farmers from exploitation through the Tobacco Industry Act recently rolled out.

He said the tobacco industry cannot develop without a good regulatory framework; hence, he signed into law a Bill aimed at protecting rural farmers.

Mutharika said he is always saddened to see that despite Kasungu farmers growing the top foreign exchange earner, they still swim in poverty because of poor prices tobacco buyers offer.

“Tobacco buying companies will not be allowed to grow tobacco, because they are stealing from the farmers, they grow their own tobacco and buy just a little from us.

“They even go to the extent of rejecting some. They will not grow the tobacco so that they be forced to buy from farmers. I am telling you, this will start this year,” said  Mutharika.

Speaking earlier, DPP vice-president for Central Region Uladi Mussa said Mutharika needs to complete two terms just like Bakili Muluzi and  Bingu Wa Mutharika – who was re-elected But could complete the second term after his sudden death.

Mussa said the Central Region  has now become a stronghold for the party.

He said the party is poised to have more legislators in the Central Region.

President wa chitukuko. No matter what the devil and its demons try, you will prevail for the battle is for the LORD. Your God is mighty and terrible and he will consume anything that stand on your way. Those who hate you, they hate God. Victory is yours, for God has prepared a table for you in the midst of your enemies.

You have delivered indeed but you would have done more were all available resources directed to development. We know a sizable portion went into private pockets.

The fact that you did not take part in peace declaration signing demonstrates beyond doubt that you are a warmonger just like your so-called cadets.

If I must say so, all your campaigning is a complete waste of time as Malawians have already made up their minds.

Who told you that you have delivered? What have you delivered? To whom have you delivered? When did you delivered? Where? Can Chilima and APM confer on these questions?

The fact that you deliberately did not take part in peace declaration signing demonstrates beyond doubt that you are a warmonger just like your so-called cadets. Take it from me your campaigning is a complete waste of time. People’s minds have already been made.

I saw him arriving in Mzuzu with few supporters bidding farewell to him. You’ve done your part Mr APM & it’s time to let go of your presidency. There’s a new leader emerging with Servant leadership ready to usher a new era! Go well & bye APM !
