Mkandawire openly called upon opposition members to vote for MCP hopeful Gwengwe in their large numbers.

“Malawi is waiting to vote for Dr Chakwera in 2019 but for this to happen, let’s demonstrate our powers by voting Gwengwe as MP this week,” said Mkandawire,

“North ,Malawi is behind Dr Lazarus Chakwera and Malawi is tired of being ruled by dishonest leaders,” said Mkandawire attacking Democratic Progressvie Party (DPP) administration.

Mkandawire, who also spoke at Mtsiliza on the same tour, said people from the north are tired with the current Government.

In his speech at Nayere, Sanjiko, Kacheta and Nathenje, Chakwera who was accompanied by Members of Parliament and other senior party members , Chakwera started by accusing Mutharika, for politicizing developments projects.

“It is unfortunate that am hearing words like support Government to have development, this is not true , development is for every citizen regardless of political colour,” said Chakwera.

Other by-elections will take place in Nsanje Lalanje for an MP and  a ward in Blantyre and Dedza.

People in the North don’t vote like the unwise people in the South and Eastern regions do, who are bringing the country down by a regionalistic choice that does not benefit the country but bring about thieves in power. When the North sees that her own child is misbehaving and acting useless as Chakufwa Chihana did by joining the unwanted alliance with UDF, she punishes her by the way of a rejection on the ballot day. The same applies to some useless MP’s who are money hungry and go for their own desires than the wishes of people; the likes… Read more »

Mr Kunena mosapsatira, Bye-election cannot be a litmus test for a presidential seat. In a General election like that in 2019 people will look for the big post. When you hear them celebrating it is the presidential seat which moves them to ecstasy. MCP has been winning more parliamentary seats but failing the presidency. MCP can win the seat in Nsanje-Lalanje with a narrow difference but these votes of a losing candidate when they are used in a presidential race they can have a weight. Votes of a losing DPP candidate in Kasungu will be more than those of a… Read more »

If people of the north respect Chihana why are they dumping his party, Aford? The party is led by his own son but all Tumbukas are running away from this son. They are supporting a party which has just dumped another son from the north in the name of Msowoya. If you are wise enough why didn’t you rise against the MCP leadership for replacing Msowoya with NANA, instead you are very vocal on Chilima’s issues. Ndinu wopepera kwambiri anthu inu.

Blessed Banda, if DPP won because of what Bingu did, why did the north gang up against Bingu on the famous thieves who were killed in July that year? Was the north not celebrating the death of Bingu and supported Joyce because her husband is from the north? Is not the majority of PP from the north? It is becoz of the runaway of Joyce that the north is now looking for another party to support. But even if you support MCP, your numbers this time will not be more than that which Chihana gave to Gwanda when he headed… Read more »

The fact that Harry has said people from the north…means he is also tribalistic…It is like north and centre gang up against south….Two wrongs don’t make a right! Is Harry not corrupt are south or centre or north people in govt or CSOs or Pvt sector not corrupt?

A Santana nzeru paja ndizokuvutani. You make noise like a wood paker on this forum without tangible facts. Do the Mathematical political calculus of the current political atmosphere then you going to see why DPP sikugona tulo.

In 2014 anthu akuChitipa mwa phuma pokondwera nsewu wawo wosalimba anavotera DPP, koma lero they are regretting. The coming by- elections are a litimus taste/test of how unpopular the current govt is. They are going to lose miserably.

JUST WAITING FOR RESULTS OF THE VOTE KUTI NDILALATE BWINO
