Northern region chairperson for the ruling People’s Party, also a former parliamentarian for Karonga central Frank Mwenefumbo has apologized to the constituency of the wrongs he was doing which cost him a seat during 2009 elections, saying he will be a reformed politician.
Mwenefumbo, who seeks to unseat against the incumbent Parliamentarian Dr Cornelius Mwalwanda during 2014 polls, told a rally he held at Mlale area in Karonga that he has realized his mistakes and that he will be correcting the situation if voted back.
He told the gathering that he was very rude to the point that he was not listening to the people.
“I know I was doing things which were not good to you all. I was acting inappropriately, childish, and cold hearted. I took things for granted that is why you gave me a break but I am assuring you that I have learnt a reason from that,” said Mwenefumbo.
“I apologise,” he said, “I am deeply sorry that I let you down.”
Flamboyant Mwenefumbo reminded the people of development works he was doing when he was the parliamentarian and that he has seen a lot of things that need to be done in his area for it to develop further.
“Although you fired me, but you know very well what I was doing and some of the things that I started are yet to be finished so I need to finish that. You can see that we are still lagging behind in so many things and these five years I have stayed with you here has really transformed me and I know where to start when you will vote for me again,” said Mwenefumbo.
He also urged people to desist from violent acts, saying the elections should be competed peacefully.
Mwenefumbo was first elected into parliament as a member of Aford and then joined DPP where he served as deputy minister before defecting to People’s Party of President Joyce Banda when she ascended to power following the death of Mutharika in office.
