Dedza Town Council was brought to a standstill when Vice President Joyce Banda visited on Thursday with orange colours of People’s Party seen everywhere as everyone wanted to get a glimpse of the second citizen.
To think that Dedza was once a stronghold of Malawi Congress Party, one could not believe it.
Dressed in orange herself, Banda visited Dedza to assure people that she will always work with them as promised in the campaign period.
The Vice President said she only accepted to be Vice President because President Bingu wa Mutharika promised that she will continue working with the rural people.
“I accepted when the president chose me to be the running mate because he told me I will continue working with the people as I have always done little did I know they were all lies just to win people’s votes,” she said.
Banda said the relationship between her and the president got sour when wanted to work for the people and do what people want not sit and eat government’s money.
“We are supposed to work for you, you are our bosses, but that is not what is happening, I was fired because I wanted to work for you and represent your view, my boss thought I was undermining his authority when all I was doing is listening to my real bosses, you,” said Banda amid cheers from the public.
The vice president said People’s Party will ensure the country experience growth economically.
“Our country needs to improve on the economic policies, we need to develop the country so that people should not live in dire poverty as they are now,” she said.
“PP will ensure that every Malawian is helped and not in poverty, the poor’s rights to essential services will be fulfilled as a way of empowering everyone,” explained Banda
Committee Members of PP assured Banda of their continued support and say Dedza will no longer be an MCP stronghold but PP’s stronghold.
They said people in the villages are tired of suffering and need a woman to lead them as men have failed to be good leaders.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
