Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) vice-president (responsible for the South) Kondwani Nankhumwa has been praised by commentators for his “civility” speech on Sunday during DPP and United Democratic Front (UDF) mass political rally that was held at Njamba Freedom Park on Sunday.
A social and governance commentator Makhumbo Munthali praised Nankhumwa for the substance in his speech which was made before UDF leader Atupele Muluzi and President Peter Mutharika addressed the crowds.
Nankhumwa in his speech asked the party followers to seek God’s intervention ahead of May 19 fresh presidential election.
“The only positive we got from Njamba Freedom Park is Honourable Kondwani Nnakhumwa speech,” Munthali pointed out . “There was civility in Nankhumwa sermon.”
In his speech, Nankhumwa said: “King Solomon, had everything at his disposal such as wealth and wisdom but he still asked God to intervene in all areas of his life. As a party, let us emulate this gesture throughout the campaign period.
“Do not keep grudges, forgive one another and above all forgive one another,” said Nankhumwa.
He said the party was ready for the fresh election.
“We are ready to give President Peter Mutharika fresh mandate in the next elections because we want continuation of development such as tarmac roads and community technical colleges,” said Nankhumwa.
In his remarks, Muluzi said the alliance of the two parties is a sign for continuation of development of the country.
“We opted for DPP because of its political values and ideologies such as peace and stability, democracy and also development . This is what UDF hopes for,” he said.
Muluzi said UDF chose an electoral alliance with DPP because the past nine months Mutharika has shown that he is patient and peace –loving person among other attributes.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
