Please analyse political issues with national interest.
Leave patriotic Sons of Malawi alone. HON Chidanti Melunge can not be compaired with any MP in Malawi according to my obervation and poeples observations. Bwana Chidanti amatiimilira ife tonse A Malawi. Very patriotic indeed. Has no biaus. Look at how he handles chairmanship of Parliamentary Committee. He is really son of Malawi without jerous .

The question of how representative are the party delegates of the actual constituency voters is very open. Given that the delegates have been there for as long as Jiya, it makes sense for him to win. But is this representative of the electorate in the constituency. Very doubtful. Nankhuni would be a great choice.

A Menyani munamela mapiko ku Dedza mpake mwathawako mutaona kuti mwaipitsila. A Nankhuni basi kapitilizeni zanu zoika pa facebuku dzithunzi mukumwa mowa ndi azamalamulo anzanawaja. Mabatelo basi

The problem with Menyani is that he spent too much time attacking the Government instead of serving his constituency. I can see the same happening to many MPs in the opposition, including Chidanti himself. kkkkkkk
