There was drama in Kasungu Central Constituency on Sunday as People’s Party (PP) parliamentarian for the area, Ken Kandodo, tussled over venue with Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Mulanje West parliamentarian, Patricia Kaliati.
The two camps crashed over Chipanga Primary School ground with both sides claiming to be the first to book the venue.
Reports indicate that the DPP camp sought permission to hold a political rally at the disputed venue nine days earlier and that a podium had already been erected.
On the other hand the Kandondo’s PP camp challenged that it wanted the same venue for a football bonanza.
Kandodo accused Kaliati of invading into his constituency arguing he could not seek permission to hold a rally i
n his own constituency.
Later the DPP camp gave in and shifted their rally to a closer by venue 500 metres away while PP led by Kandodo continued with their rally and the football bonanza.
Addressing the DPP gathering at Chipanga Trading Centre on Sunday, Kaliati attacked Kandodo, saying he has done nothing for the well being of his people.
“Can you imagine, since 2009 he calls Kasungu Central constituency developed? He is just as a barren woman promising to give birth one time,” Kaliati furiously said.
But in an interview with Mana, Kandodo who is also Minister of Defense brushed the claims of Kaliati saying that they are cheap political insults and that Kaliati is just a failure in politics.
“How can she come all the way from Mulanje and keep saying I have done nothing in as far as development is concerned? She is just being used as a cheap advocating tool pushing for my come back to DPP, a thing which I would not dare do,” he said.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
