Msowoya will not contest in 2019: Speaker’s daughter to run on UTM’s ticket in Karonga Nyungwe

Speaker of parliament Richard Msowoya has said he will not contest   in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections in his Karonga Nyungwe and is backing his last born daughter Luwani Msowoya to contest.

Dr Luwani Msowoya: Ready to serve the people
Msowoya : Time to pass the mantle to the youth

Msowoya introduced Luwani to the constituents on Sunday when he addressed a rally, saying politics is like a re-lay race and said old people should learnt to leave positions to the energetic youth.

The Speaker is aged 56, but said, in politics people should pass on the mantle while they are energetic and not go over 70 years and still cling to positions.

“When we say old people need to go, I need to walk the talk. I have done my part and I think it is time for young people to take over,” he said.

Luwani, 25, a medical doctor by profession, said she is ready for the challenge.

She said she is going to stand on United Transformation Movement (UTM) ticket a party which her father belongs.

“Yes I will be contesting for a parliamentary seat at Karonga Nyungwe constituency. I am prepared to take on the challenge. Nyungwe needs more development and I am confident that I can facilitate that”, she said.

“I have passion to serve the people,” said Luwani.

Luwani who is now gaining momentum in her constituency is likely to face a veteran politician Khwauli Msiska who is standing on the  ruling DPP ticket and Lucy Mkandawire who will  represent MCP during next year elections in the same constitecy.

Speaker Richard Msowoya who recently resigned from main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and joined  UTM a party which is led by the vice-president Saulos Chilima.

This is exactly the nonsense that must stop. Where is the transformation of Musowoya, educated as he is thengerically thinks the constituency is his family business to be bequithed to his family members such as his very own biological daughter? And the Baby leader of that assemblage thinks this is not pumbwalike. He is also the original pu

I have said it before: Msowoya is not a strategist. Why does he want to wreck the future of a young doctor. DPP is dead and anybody in their right senses would invest in anything without a future. I fear for this young doctor who will be so bewildered after loses

Dyera tsilabwino. Msowoya should not spoil the future of this young lady. She has.better career than entering in politics. Why waste her time. Anyway if she want to please her father , she will be disappointed. This is life.

I am wondering why some Malawians have low thinking yet they are graduates. She says she wants to serve Malawians, as a Medical Doctor, who were you serving at the hospital? Just say you need easy money, why should u hide? You need to serve Malawins at the hospital, thats your proffesion…..5 or 6 years at college, Govt helped paying your fees kuti mwina muzathandizire kuthetsa vuto lakuchepa kwama Dotolo mmalawi muno basi inu mukupita ku ndale chifukwa choti bambo anu ndiandale? kufuna kutchuka kumeneko? Tiona…simuwinatu inu mugwa pama vote.

Don’t worry she will be working in the hospital not in Parliament. MCP will win all seats in the north.

Msowoya now putting the daughter on the firing line. You are destroying her future really. She is just emerging as a doctor and needed to specialise and not fight the political scars of her failed father.
