Ulemu Msungama, who recently won the appeal case at the Malawi Supreme Court on Thursday kickstarted reaching out to constituents in Lilongwe City South East aimed at preparing them the forth coming rerun.
Msungama, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) candidate, disputed the 2014 election results which declared Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate Bentley Namasasu winner.

Msungama also among other issues briefed the members of his constituency regarding the outcome of the court case.
In his speech Msungama commended the MCP members especially the party president Dr Lazarus Chakwera and the entire party hierarchy for the support rendered during the entire court battle.

Welcoming Msungama, MCP Constituency chairman, Hardson Chibekete pledged to support Msungama during the forth coming re-run.
