Politician, Sidik  Mia, who  is  scheduled to  formally  announce  his  joining  the  main opposition,  Malawi Congress  Party   (MCP) has  roped  in Musician and former leader of United Democratic Front (UDF) in Parliament, Lucius Banda  in his  campaign  as he will   also play  at the  rally  in Chikwawa on Saturday.

Lucius Banda: To perform at MCP rally

Mia has convinced the Balaka North Member of Parliament have   so that he should join his campaign team.

Known as ‘Soldier of the Poor’, Banda feels the country is facing a myriad of problems that need formidable opposition to Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) rule.

Banda  is inclined  to  join the  main  opposition  party but  will  not make the announcement as that  may  have  some  legal  implications.

Of late  he has  been   not  been  present  at UDF  rallies  claiming to be   busy  with prearranged  music  performances  but has been  readily available  at  MCP  functions  where he is  asked  to  perform.

Banda  has been openly  critical  to the  leadership of his UDF  party  for  accepting  to work with the  DPP   where  UDF president  Atupele Muluzi is serving  as a cabinet  minister.

He has also done a song in his yet to be released album which he is attacking UDF for what he calls working with “agents of Satan who have destroyed Malawi.”

The Chikwawa rally  whose main  speaker  is MCP leader  Lazarous Chakwera will take  place  close to  Mia ‘s home  at Ngabu trading centre.

The UDF party leader has not commented anything on the fall out with Banda.

Banda‘s popularity is not necessary in politics but his career as a musician. He shot to popularity with his music when he sang songs which were critical to MCP’s one-party dictatorship.

Mia  has  said  it openly that  he wants  to  be  vice president  in 2019 elections.

He has since intensified his campaign in the southern region where the MCP struggles to get significant support.
