The MPLC, a political grouping that manages conflict during election period from degenerating into unmanageable levels, made the resolution on Thursday at its council meeting in Mzuzu .

The Mzuzu City Acting Chief Executive officer Victor Masina who is also chairperson for the MPLC confirmed the development in an interview saying the decision therefore dismisses the New Jerusalem private school centre which was earlier on recommend by the same committee  to be the tally.

“Yes, we called for the MPLC meeting because we wanted members to resolve whether to continue with Jerusalem or relocate to the council as per concern raised by political parties,” said Masina.

He added that Mndeba school could have been the next centre but it is equally bad as electricity is also not there’’.

Masina said the reversing of the earlier decision was arrived at after political parties were concerned that with lack of electricity, poor road network to the New Jerusalem was going to compromise the good service delivery and the credibility of the by-elections.

He observed that the idea was of great significance because on this day there will be a lot of appliances like computers, faxes, printers among others which would require uninterrupted high amount of electricity, the capacity generators cannot accommodate as sometimes are not reliable.

Masina said the idea was brilliant and this is why MPLC members like political parties that will feature candidates in the coming by-elections including other stake holders like the police officer In charge, district education manager, head of criminal investigation department, Nice, district information officer public Affairs Committee, traditional authorities and district elections clerk did not object to the proposal.

Point is there is no public/government facility in Chibanja ward fifty-one years down independence in the so called Mzuzu city. By-elections like this one merely exposes the incompetence of Mzuzu city officials through and through. Should we still put our trust in this corrupt crew to deliver a fair result?
