MCP’s Zikhale gets ‘outstanding MP award 2020’ from London Political Summit 

The London Political Summit and Awards  is at it again  after  naming former president Peter Mutharika as this year’s recipient of the Uhuru/Raila Peace-Accord honorary award and Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) politician and hip-hop artist Tay Grin as its ambassador, now it has given an award of  outstanding  member of parliament  to  Nkhatabay South legislator and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) director of strategy Dr Ken Zikhale Ng’oma.

Mutharika remains DPP leader  while Tay Grin who contested for Lilongwe City Centre parliamentary seat in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections but lost is also DPP politicians.

Zikhale, one of the founders of DPP and a close ally of Tay Grin,  was given the award by the hip-hop artist as the summit’s ambassador.

The summit chairperson Pauline Long is a close ally to Tay Grin.

But justifying the award, the summit said  Zikhale was considered for his outstanding work in Nkhatabay South constituency where he has embarked on a submissive piped project where he is replacing boreholes so that every village should be drawing tap water.

The legislator has also donated maize mills to his constituents and contributed towards building health centres.

Zikhale thanked the organisers of the awards for the recogniton.

He also took time to thank people of Nkhatabay south, especially those in the committees that have been helping him in the delivering of these projects

“I thank the members of business community, the chiefs in Nkhatabay, the church and this forum called Ndale mu Nkhatabay for all the help they have provided to me. I am receiving this honour on behalf of the people of Nkhatabay, but let me also thank our President Dr Lazarus Chakwera of whom I am dedicating this award to, for the great advice he has been giving me and for the direction he is taking Malawi to as the leader of our nation” said Zikhale.

In October 2018, Vice-President Saulos Chilima snubbed to deliver  a keynote address at the London Political Summit and Awards but instead addressed the reputable Chatham House think tank in London.

London Political Summit where President’s can mingle with lesser mortals to receive Awards. It’s all rubbish if you ask me. Organisers are nothing else but money vendors who, more often than not, will ask you to pay an administration fee for you to get your prize.
APM has fallen into a similar trap of an award that even Britain doesn’t know about.

MPs should be there to serve their constituents not start campaigning for the next election or raising their public profiles.

Zikhale landilani maulemu Ada bwana a Kalitema. You’re really focused sir keep on distributing the development projects across Nkhata Bay South. The terrain physically is very treacherous keep on your hand on development outreach. Tay Grin has done a good thing for the original founder of the DPP alongside with Bingu Webster Ryteson Mutharika

Qualifications through backdoor, awards through backdoor, contracts, etc everything, why are we doing this? One day if we are not careful, especially during this rainy season, we will through backdoor buy a bag full of sand thinking we are buying a bag of subsidized fertilizer. We have a big problem as a country. Problem: lack of humility and rushing to be called heroes while we are villains, just like another thieving politician who raised his handcuffed hands before a crowd after being sentenced to jail…..I am saying we are shameless.

The award has been misplaced. MPs are for laws and not development in their constituencies. What will Councillors be doing? The award is fueling feud between Legislators and Councillors.
