Speaking in series of rallies, the group which was headed by Speaker of parliament and MCP deputy secretary general Catherine Gotani Hara, first deputy speaker Dalitso Kazombo, Minister of lands Kenzie Msukwa and Minister of homeland security Richard Chimwendo Banda all in unson said the MCP candidate Leonard Mwalwanda will inherit his late uncle, Dr. Cornelius Mwalwanda’s seat.

In his speech at Lupembe ground, Chimwendo Banda said Leonard Mwalwanda is the only candidate who knows and will complete the development projects left by his uncle.

Speaker of Parliament who was at Mwenilondo said voting for a candidate from another party is just the same as killing development in the area.

Minister of land Msukwa openly told the Katili residents that other candidates including Frank Tumpale Mwenifumbo of UTM are just wasting their resources.

Addressing the gathering at Mlare area, first deputy speaker Kazombo said MCP which is the ruling party will retain the seat.

The group told the gathering in their different rallies that their relationship with UTM and other political parties in Tonse alliance is only on presidential ticket and not on parliamentary and councillors.

Apart from ministers, MCP National Executive Committee (NEC) members and legislatures attended the meetings that were conducted into seven areas in the constituency.

When asked why the strong delegation of MCP top brass  barnstormed one constituency, Chimwendo Banda said the party want to protect their seat.

UTM candidate Mwenifumbo said the coming of MCP top brass  in the area is boosting his support on the ground.

According to him, Karonga central is different with other constituencies in the country because the constituents vote for a person not the party.

Another candidate who will compete with Mwenifumbo of UTM and Mwalwanda of MCP is Florence Nthakomwa who will stand as independent candidate after pulling out od UTM primaries.

In 2012 when PP was in government, they lost in Mzimba Central to an independent candidate, Mabvuto Kachali despite having the resources and deploying a contingent of cabinet ministers to campaign for Aramu Beza. Is history going to repeat itself?

Utm ili pa msana pa njovu. Zokatola Frank Mwenifumbo kudzala ndiye chiyani? Munthu wosakhazikika ngati galu. Frank Pali ndalama ndi azimayi sungamuzulepo. Zinthu ziwiri izi ndi ma value a Frank. Kenako timva UTM ikulandira Bintoni Kutsaira, Wakuda Kamanga, Grizield Jefule, Nankhumwa and Uladi Mussa.

MCP should avoid such kind of narratives. For over 25 years now people who are old enough have never voted for MCP up to this year.
