Nankhumwa not scared of Usi competition in battle for Mulanje Central

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) vice-president for the South, Kondwani Nankhumwa has downplayed the competition he will face to defend his parliamentary seat from UTM Party running mate Dr Micheal Usi.

Nankhumwa: DPP more popular

Nankhumwa will be seeking re-election as Mulanje Central MP. He will compete against  ‘Manganya’ Usi, who is also acrunning mate to UTM party presidential candidate Saulosi Chilima.

Is he scared?

The minister told Weekend Nation that he had known ‘Manganya’ for many years and that he is his friend.

“Those that have known me can testify that I am a true democrat who values competition and that I am always open to the alternative viewpoint in a marketplace of ideas.  I certainly welcome the competition,” he said.

Nankhumwa, who also serves in President Peter Mutharika’s cabinet as Local Government and Rural Development minister, expects to win his seat at ease and that he would continue as government leader in `parliamentary.

Mulanje Central is not a Comedy theatre and cannot waste time voting a comedian as their MP. VIVA APM, VIVA NANKHUMWA.

There is no way Manganya can come anywhere near Nankhumwa in ndale competition. All Usi must do is derive satisfaction in knowing he is just SKC’s running mate and that, should things turn positive for him, he could end up Country’s VP. but without a constituency.

From what I know, there is no way Manganya can come anywhere near Nankhumwa in ndale competition. Manganya should just derive satisfaction in knowing he is UTM’s Running mate. No more. We can only hope SKC will make it to Plot Number 1 so that Usi just ends up a VP, without a constituency.

Abale this government is not going to DPP again. MCP and UTM one of them will take over. DPP has been surrounded with so many bad things that people know and are keeping quiet due to fear.
