Nankhumwa upbeat Mutharika, DPP to win 2019 elections

The ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) vice-presidents for the South, Kondwani Nankhumwa, says  he’s confident that the DPP  will win next year’s elections with overwhelming support because Peter Mutharika administration continues to give tangible developments.

Nankhumwa, who is also Minister of Local Government and Rural Development and Mulanje Central legislator, was addressing a mass rally in Bangwe, Blantyre for the first time since he was elected party veep at the convention.

In his speech beamed live on privately owned Times Television, Nankhumwa said he is a firm believer of issue-based politics and not podium slurs.

He said DPP has delivered in development projects, citing the new Blantyre Water Supply Project that will see Blantyre Water Board (BWB) pumping water from Likhubula in Mulanje Mountain to improve water supply and compliment the main water source at Walker’s Ferry on the Shire River as one of the great initiatives.

Nankhumwa paraded George Chaponda who he succeeded as DPP veep as well as Leader of the House in Parliament, saying it is time for DPP to pull together in one direction as the country approach next year’s elections.

“Come rain, come sunshine DPP will rule the country for another five years. And like we always say, we will continue ruling until 2084,” he said.

While avoiding mentioning United Transformation Movement (UTM) of vice president Saulos Chilima, a splinter political group of the DPP, Nankhumwa said there should be no cause for worry.

“Some of you people are worried because of the people who left the party. I am here to tell you that President Peter Mutharika says the storm will die down. The ship will not sink so long as he remains the captain ship,” said Nankhumwa.

Nankhumwa said the Blantyre rally was a start of many meetings he has lined up in the southern region to boost the party support.

He struck an upbeat tone that DPP was on course to win the election next year.

Nankhumwa asked Malawians to turn out in large numbers to register to vote in the May 2019 Tripartite Elections.

You’re probably correct Nankhumwa that DPP will win with 37% of the votes. However, the rest of 63% of the voters will be crying for a better Malawi. All we can ask DPP to do is to listen to the majority and not bury your heads in the sand. Stop looting, stop crime, stop kutukwana, stop cronyism, stop nepotism, stop tribalism, stop regionalism, stop undermining state institutions, stop undermining rule of law, stop wasting govt funds for frivolous govt expenditure, stop employing more civil servants in positions that don’t add value, stop the rot in the health and education sectors.… Read more »

Akulu mukuoneka ngati odziwa koma muli mbuli, Zambia simply removed some zeros on their currency a process called “redenomination”. It happens when the currency has more zeros that makes it hard to read. After all zimene mukunenazi is not a good indicator of strong economy. Take for example, Ten thousand Tanzanian shillings (Tzs10,000) is worth about MK3000 only here, but can we say because Malawi currency is stronger than that of Tanzania then this automatically means Malawi economy is also stronger than that of Tanzania? Far be it. Sindikutsutsa whether or not Zambia’s economy is better than of Malawi, koma… Read more »

@Heavy-Duty Thanks for doing my job here. I have always been teaching people about the Redenomination process at this forum. But I still think that we still have people around like @MakeMalawiGreat who are still in the dark about currencies, the Redenomination and the fact that all our neighbors have already redenominate their currencies due to massive loss of value. These people in the darkness know nothing about economics. That’s why they prefer inferior foreign currencies to their own powerful currency “relatively”. Our currency, theMalawi Kwacha, has always been superior to a good chunk of African currencies. Just before Joyce… Read more »

Mbuli ndye kuti chani? Excuse u? Why arent you wise enough to know that no everyone has access to the information that the Zambian kwacha was re-denominated as not everyone like lets say in europe or some parts of africa even SA knows malawi kwacha was devaluated cause the type of access of information their exposed to! You read shit you have interest in and discard some, so just because you got that info dont make u a smart ass! Been to TZ Mbezi some many times BTW.
