Salima Central legislator Felix Jumbe has called on the country’s politician to refrain from partisan politics if the country’s eco-socio-political tables are to be turned around.
Jumbe has made the call high on the heels of the procurement of two motorbikes for ward councilors – Councilor Janet Sabina Chipeni of Kalonga ward (MCP) and Beatrice Mbewe (UDF) of Maganga Kuluunda ward– in his constituency to ease their travel woes.
He said as custodians of development in their wards, transport was “crucial” for them to be effective enough.
“I decided to come in after learning that the ward councilors were facing logistical hurdles to reach some parts of the areas of their jurisdiction,” noted Jumbe.
Jumbe, who was recently fired from the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) for criticizing the party’s leadership, said his dream was to see a different Salima Central in terms of development.
“And for Salima to develop, we need to hold hands and work together regardless of political affiliations,” he opined.
Chipeni and Mbewe said they were “grateful.”
The motorbikes cost the parliamentarian over K2 million.
