President Peter Mutharika says his government has completely transformed the face of Blantyre through various development projects that have been implemented in the district.
The President was speaking on Friday at Chigumula during the start of a whistle stop tour that he conducted in Blantyre and Thyolo.
The President, therefore, said there was need for Malawians to vote for Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on May 21 to ensure continued development in the next coming five years.
“In the next five years, Malawi will surely develop to the level of South Africa or Singapore,” said Mutharika, adding that his government was conversant with drivers of development such as road network and skills development.
The Head of State then appealed to all Malawians who have registered for the forthcoming elections to go and vote in their large numbers, saying each and every vote counts.
“My government has fulfilled each and every commitment it made in 2014 manifesto, if voted we will continue from there to make sure that poverty is eradicated once and for all in the country,” said Mutharika.
Earlier, the president described the opposition parties retrogressive, saying they are always against development initiatives his government implements such as FISP.
In his remarks, Traditional Authority Kapeni endorsed the President, appealing to people in his area to vote for Mutharika, saying he had delivered during his tenure.
“The only way we can show gratitude to the president is through the ballot box,” said Kapeni while citing different development projects that have been carried out his area such as electrification of the area and improvement of Limbe to Mpemba Road.
The State President is conducting whistle stop tours to appeal to Malawians to vote for the DPP- led government in the forthcoming elections slated for May 21.
