Ruling Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is not fielding a candidate in Zomba Changalume by-election asofficials say the party will instead be supporting a People’s Party (PP) candidate.

PP candidate for Zomba Changalume Lawrence Bisika (r) with party guru Joseph Chikwemba

A list of candidates from Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) shows that the  party does not have a candidate in the by election.

This means UTM Party will battle it out with its two Tonse alliance partners; MCP and PP.

There are also independent candidates vying for the seat which fell vacant after its legislator John Chikalimba succumbed to covid-19 last month.

The by-election in Zomba Changalume and five other constituencies and two wards are expected to take place on March 30, 2021.

The alliance partners should be able to show empathy to the bereaved partner by supporting their retention of the seat. Unfortunately, UTM has decided to be power hungry as always which is shameful

The Indian OG Issa should be a threat to all. He can win in surprise to PP because this man has a good track record for once being an MP and he delivered it appears.

UTM is a confused grouping. They went solo in Karonga Central and now they are at it again. Mungdziyalutsapo chabe apa.
