Leonard Mwalwanda unveiled as MCP candidate for Karonga Central

Leonard Mwalwanda,  nephew to late Cornelius Mwalwanda,  was Saturday unveiled as parliamentary hopeful for Karonga Central constituency ahead of a by-election scheduled to take place on November 10.

Mwalwanda: MCP candidate

The by-election is one of the five that will take place in the country on the same date.

Speaking during the unveiling ceremony at Lupembe, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) vice president,  Harry Mkandawire,  said the party “cannot afford to lose the seat to another party.”

Mkandawire said the late Mwalwanda was a “great member of the party with profound wisdom” and hence there was need that his legacy be continued by his nephew,  Leonard.

“We are certain that all the development projects that were left behind by the senior Mwalwanda will continue. As a party we know that he is capable and that he will deliver,” said Mkandawire.

Mkandawire urged party members to refrain from violence during the campaign period.

“This constituency has been known for violence for so long. But this is the end as it has been demonstrated by Eliam Simwaka who is now supporting Mwalwanda,” said Mkandawire.

During the rally,  Simwaka,  who was also on the race for MCP candidacy during primaries,  heaped his support behind Mwalwanda.

“All that we want under Chakwera’s administration is development, ” said Simwaka.

And Mwalwanda said he will soon be unveiling his plans on how best to develop the constituency in the disciplines of health,  education and agriculture.

What has he got to offer apart from being related to the late MP? This is democracy not a chieftaincy.

It’s ok to practice tribal or relation politics because it is MCP yet if the same would be done by UDF or DPP the loud mouthed Ntambo would say it’s wrong. Chakwera is a certified hypocrite.

The face looks like a losing candidate. He lacks self confidence. I am MCP to the core but our candidate is not inspiring confidence in us. If we lose this seat it will be a sign of worse things to come. Frank Mwenifumbo is too strong for this Mwalwanda.

  1. You don’t judge a book by its cover. If you remember Bingu’s face before becoming the president, he didn’t look so confident as one to lead Malawi. He looked pale and unstable but there we had him as one of the great leaders. Wisdom and intelligence are not enshrined in the face but mind. Don’t be deceived with outward looks
