Banda, who of late has been performing in MCP rallies, entertained starved people from the middle morning hours till late in the evening.
The former UDF parliamentary leader said he is always happy whenever associating himself with the MCP.
“It is this party which transformed Malawi not these in power today,” he said
In his speech, Msungama commended people of the constituency for the support being rendered.
“Since we started our road show campaign, we have been seeing a lot of people coming out to support us, I don’t take this for grunted,” said Msungama.

The elections were contested in court by Msungama who argued there were irregularities in the elections.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
